G1 VS Bayformers : Shockwave by Micgrol G1 VS Bayformers : Shockwave by Micgrol
Got this picture finished to today.
The point of the comic is my response on TF3 on how they portrayed Shockwave.
I liked his character design in both styles despite the build up of him being the main movie villain ,only to be let down by a Sentinel Prime who I barely knew.I thought it was shame how he got little screen time and to only get his ass kicked by humans wit the help of a parachute blinding him.

Note the sheet line is a reference to the NC's review on independence day,In case no one has seen it.

Plus has anyone noticed that TF3's Shockwave has his gun on his right arm which his original counterpart had it on the opoosite arm? WTF? So much for research >:3

Then again although there were disappointments in TF3,it's just a movie that was directed by a guy who only wanted to see s**t blow up as a profession.

I fucking hated how Shockwave was built up to be this badass and then what is he stopped by, a sheet. Not to mention he barely appears in the movie. I love these movies but I'm not gonna lie, that pissed me off.

It's alright Shockwave, the Two Heads'll improve on your design flaw, even though they themselves are seemingly firearm-less, don't appear as big, and are merely common foot soldiers that are often killed.

actually you got one thing wrong, starscream is the second in command.

LOL indeed! Also flying gun can kill from space.
Swift-Nimblefoot Featured By Owner May 9, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Great point there! :)

Also, he is so "superior", he has to fire his gun-arm manually. I am not kidding - check his final battle (or rather, flailing demise) against Optimus  and the humans - he desperately tries to get of a shot, but given the parachute is on his face, he cannot grab hold of the trigger and apparently, cannot simply fire the cannon with a mental command unlike pretty much every TF in the Bayformers series.

That, and he has like, ONE line of dialogue in the movie: "Oppppptimuuussss...." That's all. What a complete waste of a good character.
GrimlockAlignak Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2014  Student General Artist
He has more than one line of dialogue. 
"Driller bot is thirsty." 
Swift-Nimblefoot Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
LOL! :)

I still find it funny how Shockwave rides around in a giant one-eyed trouser driller-snake. :)

Yeah I agree. It would have been better if he was the main villain. If he was as sinister as his Fall of cybertron persona, then I might have enjoyed transformers 3 abit more.
Swift-Nimblefoot Featured By Owner May 11, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Shocky is a great character, but Bay apparently only used him as a red herring to make people think (based on the posters and trailer) that he was the main villain - when in truth, that was Sentinel Prime. I suspect he is doing the same now, given how prominent Lockdown is in the trailer, I expect Grimlock to be the villain this time around.
Micgrol Featured By Owner May 11, 2014  Student Digital Artist
You know bumblebee would have been a better traitor than sentinel.
Swift-Nimblefoot Featured By Owner May 11, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Genius! :D

THAT's why he never ever said a word. :)

Frankly I actually like to imagine the Bayformers world as a sort of Mirror Universe - after all, here the Decepticons are trying to save the dying Cybertron, ally themselves with humans and they actually capture their enemies alive, while the Autobots show no mercy and gladly blow up their own  planet to protect a race that has basically used them as living weapons. :D No wonder Sentinel sided with the Cons once he learned Optimus destroyed the harvester that could re-fuel the Allspark...

There was a mirror universe before.

I have noticed that his gun is on the opposite arm. Oh Shockwave...

On the bright side...

Movie Shockwave makes a better Megatron than the Hobo with a shotgun.

G1 Shockwave: I lasted two whole TV series, you lasted, what, two minutes? Plus, one line of dialogue and you get your a*s kicked repeatedly?

Though Bayformers Shockwave did get dialogue in the comic adaptation.
legofan13 Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2013
And that dialogue in the comics was utterly badass

Bayformers was kinda like the most ridiclous thing they'd ever done with transformers... and after killing off nearly every single villian, they're now making a no. 4.

Bayformers can suck it
Honestly, I like the movies and I like the designs but if there is one complaint that I have with them, it's that they focus far too much on plot macguffins.

This is so true xD

Bayformers... holy crumb... that word in of itself is a great description.
Micgrol Featured By Owner May 12, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah its the phrase used for the universe that Michael bay directed.I still think they should have made Bay responsible for the special effects department ,not direct the entire movie.

Top three alien weaknesses:
3. Sheets; block their vision and they're powerless.
2. Water. It's like acid to them.
1. Wood (aka DUN-KO). 'Cause let's face it. No alien has ever been able to get through a fucking... pantry... DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRR!!!!!!!! D:< *faints*

I have to admit the first Transformer movie was great! It's better than the rest of the sequels which lack the same elements as the first movie.

Anyway, hail Starscream!
toalorikan626 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012
they should have made shockwave 'the' enemy it would have been awesome to have shockwave maniplate prime through megaton and then kill sentinel after he gets the code to the control pillar, then it would be appropriate to kill him off

I didn't get the humour, but I like the drawing itself.
Ah, wait...I think, I just get it- he was covered with something in the movie.
