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
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.
If you like busts and statues, then you're in business! Prime 1 Studios had pieces on display from Age of Extinction at Wonderfest this weekend. Busts of Optimus Prime and Galvatron, replicating the heads and upper bodies of the characters in painstaking detail, plus a full statue of Lockdown with one of his "hunting dogs". It's probably the best merchandise representation of Lockdown that will ever exist, and the price tag is sure to reflect that! Click through to check them out.
