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.

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.

LOL indeed! Also flying gun can kill from space.

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.

He has more than one line of dialogue. 
"Driller bot is thirsty."

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.

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.

You know bumblebee would have been a better traitor than sentinel.
