    2. why would you even question its validity!?? shockwave's dead! And even my wildest fanboy dreams don't see him coming back to life

    4. The reason I asked that question is because I myself heard a rumour that Shockwave could be returning to Transformers 4. He is apparently "deactivated" because Optimus only pulled out his eye. Come to think of it, that one punch when Optimus was on his killing spree couldn't have killed him either.

    Ooh yeah, that fireball probably has to do something with the Dinobots, one way or another. At least, we think, but it could be something entirely else.

    2. Dudemus: I agree, if statements like these are going to be made at least have some proof to back them up. Otherwise its just BS. As far as shockwave is concerned it maybe nice to see his return since he played a small role in the previous film, but I don't think that's likely. Aside from any leader class Optimus has fought and lived to tell about it, was Megatron. All other had met their fate. Soon they would be saying that the Fallen will be returning.

    3. Dudemus: l meant to say unlikely. Sorry for the typo.

    4. I'm a collector so. It would be nice to have shockwave return maybe then they'll make a leaderclass figure for him this go round. That voyager was awful.
