    Shockwave looks...terrible. I'm glad they went with the version they used. You are right, he doesn't look that menacing. If they had given Shockwave his logic computer suckup role, that would have been perfect. But in the way he was used, the silent emotionless killer, that would have failed miserably.

    Still, thanks for that! It was interesting to look at.

    I could've work with that sweet G1 inspired design for Laserbeak in the film.

    He looks fat and swollen.

    The idea is cool, but that finalized design, is not. The best would be the one in the movie with this one's chest. Or at least a glow under the ribs.

    It's also worth noting that Shockwave showed up in the game for the 2007 movie, so they've been toying around with designs since at least then.

    Agreed. I like the final DotM design better, but that concept definitely has some charm to it.

    I know how they came up with Shockwave's concept : they took the G1 toy and (the horror!) dunk it into an office shredder.

    OP:

    Yeah, the final one looks more interesting. I wonder if this one was supposed to turn into a truck, though. The chest almost looks like a Dodge grille. :)

    The chest thing looks out of place.

    That Shockwave design looks like movie verse Megatron's long lost twin brother.

    I hated the ROTF Shockwave design. Because it reminded me of Alternators Shockblast. with a shockwave designed head thrown on a body that looked nothing like 1985 Shockwaves toy or media designs.

    I think I like the early shockwave design because at the very least it has the 1985 shockwave robot chest design & head.

    I actually prefer it over the final design.

    No odd ribcage, insect mouth, odd feet.

    And maybe he could have Transformed into something better than a dodgy tank thing.

    Well, everyone does say TFP Shockwave resembles his DOTM counterpart.

    Shockwave doesn't look that good to me. Laserbeak does though!

    Those Thor ones don't look too hot either to me. haha. First one too buff. 2nd one, idk, looks like a god of war character.
