Age of Extinction
Custom of the Week - War Within Shockwave by TonyzCustomz

By Garage Mod on Thursday, February 26, 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 is the War Within Shockwave by TonyzCustomz.

People have been kicking around kitbash ideas for the Marvel Crossovers toys and this one's too cool as bulked out WW Shocky making it this weeks Custom or of the Week.

Question: What is big and green and fuglier than the Hulk?
Answer: His Transformers Marvel Crossover toy.

Yea, we've all seen it and wondered "why?" With a $15 price tag to make special, it seemed like a total FAIL. However, good can come from the bad. TonyzCustomz War Within Shockwave is our proof. Keeping with the beefed up War Within look, TonyzCustomz has imagined a compelling version from that corner of the Transformers Universe as TonyzCustomz tells it:
    "Shockwave here is loosely based of Don concept art from teh War Within Comic. Made from a Hulk Transformer Crossover figure with a ShockBlast head and the cannon off of a Movie Bumblebee Figure. Painted him up in a slightly metallic purple for the body and greys for the treads and bits and he is one mean purple Tank. Thanks for looking!"

More Age of Extinction News
Site sponsor Robot Kingdom has posted images of the upcoming Hybrid Metal Figuration Age of Extinction Bumblebee from Herocross, a large figure featuring (as the name implies) diecast metal in its construction. It's due for July at a price of $130, and looks decently poseable and highly accessorized as far as SD figures go. Keep reading to see!
ToysRUs Japan has posted new images of Black Knight Optimus Prime! Based on Armor Knight Optimus Prime, the heavily-reworked version of Generations Leader-class Optimus, Black Knight Prime is every bit as extensively painted as the Armor Knight version and looks great. The figure is due for release in August at a price of 8,638 Yen after tax. Keep reading for the photos!
Fans in America are quick to forget about those Bayformers robots. However, in Shanghai a Hunan father and son team have turned away from farming vegetables to the much more profitable endeavor of building Transformers robots statues out of car parts. According to a report on Shanghaist, they are taking in 1 million yuan ~ $160,00 usd each year.
Thanks to 2005 for pointing this out! Yexel's Toy Museum in Las PiƱas, Phillipines houses an impressive life-size (1:1) scale bust of movie Optimus Prime! Housed in a NEST scaffolding, it's quite an impressive sight. Keep reading to see more photos, and check out their Facebook page to see their other life-sized exhibits like the Iron Monger armor from the first Iron Man film, and Baymax from Big Hero 6!
In what we presume to be a limited-time offer, Google is offering the 2007 Transformers movie - probably the best of the four - for free through its Google Play store. The catch is that you have to register a payment method such as a credit card with them, so if a free digital copy of Transformers is your price for doing that, it's worth checking out!
