Shockwave? Custom

Recommended Posts

Remember a few years back, when Tim Burton did Planet of the Apes, and he made a big deal about it not being a remake, but a "reimagining" of the film? Of course you don't, because the film was rather lacluster and he has since made several better films. OK, maybe not, but his earlier stuff was cool. Crap, where was I? Oh yeah, my custom. Anyway, I tried to do something similar with this figure, reimagining the design of Shockwave while using some elements of the classic character.

 

 

iwanted to make him look like a bada$$ young swat cop, so I used Barrel Roll's head. The rest just kinda fit together. The helmet drew from the DEF mold (a figure I never had or wanted), while the paint I sort of based off the night force/v1 mold.

 

In the end, I'm not very happy. I think the blue is a little too dark (purple?) and somethings just no right with the neck. I might end up making him someone other than Shockwave. Maybe change the head. Any thoughts?

I have to say I rather like the custom and think it is a really good "re-imagining" of the character. I'd keep it as is.

Everything but the helmet (too small) looks good! :)

I like the custom as well, I think it works as Shockwave. I agree with VH on the helmet. Good job man!

Chances are you can probably make him as Sure Fire. If you want to a DEF Shockwave helmet, you can use the spytroops helmet from Sgt. Airborne or from Barrel Roll...as for the head, if you want to base it off of the DEF Shockwave...use Cross Hair's head.
