Its Shockwave, but he's grey? or is it? ... no its his predecessor Astro Magnum aka Galactic Man aka Shackwave!
About this creation
Before he was the evil G1 (purple) Decepticon Shockwave, Guardian of Cybertron he was a toy called Astro Magnum from Toyco in Japan. The grey version of pre - Shockwave was also sold at Radio Shack under the name Galactic Man. Many knock-offs have come since those early days before the Transfomers but here is my homage to the pre-Transformer known affectionately as Shackwave! He transforms similarily to the original toy!

Watch my youtube video click here of me reviewing and transforming this cool pre G1 Transformer in lego format!

PS If you came to my exhibit at Lasting Toys you got to see this guy a week before the rest of the world did.

yep seen it before really nice - my design is longer and lankier - however I abondened it a year ago and forgot about it. But since inspired by shackwave I'll likely get back to it soon!

Quoting Chris Phipson Makes me think of the other "crossovers" like Jetfire with the robotech stuff... good times the 80's. ~ Chris.

yes it got some little and big minds thinking that there is more to do with Lego than just build your clone wars sets! LOL!
Quoting Stuart Lucas I never knew this existed! A great build as ever - I bet your exhibit at Lasting Toys provoked a fair few gasps and admiring looks too. Good stuff!

This is very cool take on Shockwave/Astro Magnum. I didn't even know about him until I looked at this post! I reall like the chest design the best, it reall ties the whole thing together in my opinion. Great work, as always, Chris.

You know... Now that I sit and think about it, I am old enough to do this, I do remember the radio shack version. Thanks for reminding me that I'm up there in years with you man. LOL Anyway, great job on the build and the memory stumper.

yellow? u mean purple?
Quoting Stef Mos ...You just didn't have any more yellow pieces, did you? :p It's very, very good anyway! I believe I once saw this Shocky in the Seibertron gallery. BTW, I saw that Yap Alan's Blurr got on the frontpage once! Maybe you can get there too :D

Wicked build, and I think better than the original toy, yet again! Interesting trivia, too. I knew about the whole Jetfire thing, but not Shockwave. Feel free to stop by sometime, pull up a chair, have a read...

umm it feels OK I guess .... LOL! The larger scale is my preferred scale after all!
Quoting Zach Kuleba One word..... AWSOME!!!!! Also how's it feel to switch from mini scale back to large scale. Also I'm hoping that your updated mini will be posted soon

Awesome work as usual! I was never aware of this fig, but he definately looks like a gray Shockwave. There is some seriously cool parts usage here, especially in the head and chestplate area. NICE!
