Age of Extinction
Custom of the Week - Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave by Jin Saotome

By Garage Mod on Tuesday, June 30, 2009



Transformers Garage is on the look out for the best custom / kitbash to feature each week here and in the Transformers Garage Hall of Fame section.

This week's featured custom in our "holy freakin' cow" series is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave by Jin Saotome.

"What's Transformers without Shockwave I ask you? He's like the jelly to a PB&J, the bottle cap to a beer, you know what I'm saying right?"

We do indeed, Mr. Saotome.

Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave by Jin Saotome

"Shockwave was created using a Swindle head, Soundwave upper body, and Protoform Starscream lower body. Soundwave's legs became the arms and I removed the fish-fin panels, also moving the main satellite spear. His hand and gun were various fodder parts and I added wires and hoses inside of his arms."

Revenge of the Fallen Shockwave by Jin Saotome

"Shockwave's paint job took me hours of non-stop shading, weathering, use of every metallic color I had, and mixing together every technique I had to create his look. When it came to the purple I used it sparingly and didn't focus on the wing panels, darkening them to act like a cape behind him. Shockwave transforms into a mini Vector Prime type vehicle similar to Shoundwave's alt mode."

See the full custom gallery in the customs and kitbashes section in our forums.

exactly my thoughts....kinda dulls out the point of submitting galleries for other artists who post regularly here instead of when they have an ebay auction.

More Age of Extinction News
Thanks to an article by william-james88 of Seibertron, we have scans of a photo shoot from the September issue of Elle Italia, the Italian version of the long-running fashion magazine. In the photos, model Josephine Skriver is shown shopping on New York's Fifth Avenue with her boyfriend from space - who is none other than the movie version of Optimus Prime! Keep reading to see the photos.
Olivus Prime of the TFW2005 Forums was able to sit down with Mark Ryan recently and talk Transformers movies. Ryan is the voice behind Revenge of the Fallen's Jetfire and Age of Extinction's Lockdown, and spoke of his inspiration for Jetfire, the amount of his own acting that was put into Lockdown... and perhaps most interestingly, a hint at the direction of Transformers 5 and the Transformers Cinematic Universe at large. Read on to see what he had to say!
Get your views in on the Transformers movies listed on Netflix as they will be removed from the listing at the end of September. Transformers: Age of Extinction and a number of other films such as the Hunger Games, World War Z that are part of the Epix distribution deal, have not been renewed at this time. We've been here before, where the deal was done only to be re-done at the zero-hour. Read on to see the quote from Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix.
Empire Online has posted a ranking of the 100 greatest characters to feature in a movie, as selected by their readership. And Optimus Prime managed to make the list! Just barely avoiding falling in to dead last place, Optimus Prime ranks 98 out of 100. We're not entirely sure on what criteria people made their choices, but the bullet points on Empire's list might have you believe it's due to Optimus riding a dinosaur. We can but wonder if he wouldn't have ranked higher had he not murdered Frasier a short time later. Click through to get a link to the full list.
Following the long slow run up to Transformers 5 and the Cinematic Universe. We have some new insights from Daredevil writer Steven Dekinght. He's been part of the writers room sessions and gives us his take how things are unfolding. Paramount are "pulling all the stops" including a visit from Steven Spielberg himself. While no word on what the new Transformers 5 movie being worked on now by Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner, we do get a sense the new blood may actually produce a movie a story in it. Read on for more.
