    How about more Shockwave and less driller.

    The driller was cool, but Shockwave SHOULD have been cooler.

    I can't wait for the DVD. 2 disks...

    I hope they're careful when they decide to use that "secret sauce". One can never be too careful.

    I thought the Driller was absolutely terrifying. But the most complex model??? I thought ROTF Devastator was the biggest baddest thing of all time... I mean, it actually killed a computer at ILM... and their computers are like god themselves.

    they wasted so much money and time on the driller that probably won't even get a toy?

    Driller is realy terrific... Especially in 3D...

    Some very cool insight into the Driller's CGI. 70,000 parts is just...yikes. O_O

    The Driller wasn't even able to occupy a 4 block span in Chicago. When Shockwave cocks his gun you can see the Driller's body scrunched up to fit the area and its tail laying against the building. Its bigger then Devs.

    Also the devs thing was an accident. They were prepared this time.
