  1. Holy ****! It's Shockwave in RISING STORM!

    And the Sector 7 comic looks interesting enough to look at...

  2. why is 'shockwave' (As i would guess is on the cover) blacked out? Does this mean that the designs for him in the comic is the same as TF3 and they just wanna keep it quiet for a while?

  3. I almost read that as:

    "allow me to grab your ass"


  4. shockwave kick ass

  5. Megatron has been on the run since Optimus Prime defeated the Fallen... But now a new player has arrived on Earth, and he's not taking prisoners!

    I smell Megatron vs Optimus vs SHOCKWAVE

    Megatron vs SHOCKWAVE??? So, is this ship maybe SHOCKWAVE???

  6. @ sdlrob

    They did the same thing with Megs new design in the comics before ROTF, blacked him out in the solicitations. Regardless, at least we'll get to see Shockwave's design in January.

  7. It looks like Shockwave has a sword and a big lasergun, and he's got a cool robot form.

  8. That ship-thing we saw in Detroit was hinted to be him. But SHockwave's robot form look a little different.

  9. Martinus Prime10/23/2010 7:11 AM

    That ship-thing with the big jet engines is not Shockwave, it's way too small.

  10. It hink the only difference between them is that Shockwave's robot mode is too different than the ship. Ship isn't too small.

  11. Martinus Prime10/24/2010 2:00 PM

    Yeah, you're right, it isn't too small, if you compare to Optimus's truck form, it's big enough. I don't why I thought that.
    It barely fitted on the trailers in the pictures we saw a few months ago.
    But I don't think it's Shockwave, cause Sam ans Carly stepped on to it from a building. The big shields on his arms will probably be his cybertronian wings.

  12. There's somthing strange in the black ship\engine:
    1-It have a sort of human-scale hatch(so probably there is a control room inside)
    2-It doesn't seem cybertronian,but an old strange human-made thing
    3-The rear of the two reactors are completly CUT...i mean flat, without details.
    It's seem uncompletly(perhaps that "thing" must be complete in CGI)

  13. I know the magazine might be flipped or something but, Shockwave has a gun for his left hand, not his right (As shown in the shilloute)

    As for shockwaves look, i feel his gun should be less bulky and that the "Sword" isnt a sword, but kibble from his alternate mode.

    Also his gun seems to be attached via a cable to his back aswell, hopefully this isnt in the film or on the toy as it will probably limit movement and isnt really necessary.
