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
In a keynote at MIP Junior 2015, Hasbro's Stephen Davis touched on many topics related to the company's media franchises. In the process of answering questions, he revealed that the recently concluded writers room did not just plan Transformers 5, but that they worked to plot Transformers movies for the next ten years, which he suggests will take the property through an eighth film. He also specifically mentions Michael Bay's involvement once again, to no one's particular surprise. Video of the event has been posted to Youtube, so click through to have a look!
Today Deadline is reporting that TJ Fixman, known perhaps best to this audience For his contributions to the Ratchet & Clank series, has been hired in to Hasbro Studios as a creative consultant. Fixman's role will be to work with the existing media producers to help develop the fiction and media sides of the major brands, including Transformers. It sounds like Hasbro Studios is making a serious effort to up their media game, and only time will tell what influence will be seen from this latest addition.
Thanks to Genmon Photo Vault on Facebook, we have some nice photos of the Platinum G1 Dinobots. These are the Generations Series AOE Dinobots in classic colors and with G1-based robot heads, which for better or worse are probably the nearest we're going to get to true Classics Dinobots anywhere in the foreseeable future. Fortunately on that front, these come off looking quite nice with these decos and their retooling. Click through to check out the photos!
Hold up before you sign that check and buy a used car, because there's a statue of a robot you may want to think about first! Prime 1 Studio has posted an extensive image gallery of their elaborate Museum Masterline Transformers Galvatron statue, and it looks pretty impressive! (As it should for an SRP of $1,899 USD!) The Exclusive edition - limited to 888 pieces where the Standard run is 1,000 - includes Megatron's severed head. Keep reading to see!
In a message posted just a short time ago to michaelbay.com and his own Twitter account, Michael Bay states that as of right now he has not officially joined the production of the next Transformers movie. In the very brief and to-the-point statement, Bay notes that he has taken at least one meeting already and that things are being discussed. However, given Bay's track record, we don't expect to see Transformers 5 with someone else ultimately in the director's chair. Stay tuned here for more updates!
