    I was think today when I was playing with my new DOTM Shockwave, Does he remind you about Beast Wars Megatron (regular Trex form).

    Think about it:

    - Right Hand deadly Laser
    - Left hand a different weapon?
    - Purple color
    - Vicious
    - I can't remember, but tried to take Original Megatron's power
    - Craving Energon

    If that theory is true won't it be funny if David Kaye played Shockwave in the movie? Maybe imagine the Trex Megatron with a British accent, minus the Yes and No.

    I don't know much about Beast Wars. Are Shockwave and BW Megatron similar? Sure maybe in someways. But based on what I have heard and seen I don't think David Kaye would work as Shockwave. Corey Burton or David Warner will do. I just hope his age dosen't affect his voice.

    :lol 


    They have some similar physical traits like both turn into tanks (Pre-Earth BW Megs did in the prequel comic), both purple, and they have ginormous guns on arms.

    Personality-wise, very different characters.

    Not really. I kinda see him being more like BW Tarantulas.

    How do you know if any of this will be in the movie?

    We know very little about Shockwave in DOTM.

    I wouldnt think so, we havent even seen the movie yet. From what I have seen of the character before, he's more like Tarantulas. IMO the only TF close to BW Megatron is Animated Megatron.

    Because we know he's purple. Not as purple as the toy but we've seen him in the Superbowl trailer.

    And Michael Bay said he'd be more vicious then Megatron.

    BW Megatron does not have one eye.

    Well, he was purple, had one large glowing red eye, had Shockwave's distinct "rib" design on his chest...

    Imma say it was him.

    If in any Transformers series it's revealed that Shockwave is Beast Wars Megatron, I just might shoot myself. It takes away from the whole revolutionary following his ancestor's last mission centuries later.

    Not really. Just because the toy has similarities doesn't mean they're actually similar.

    Beast Era Megatron had something every Live action movie Decepticon has lacked so far.


    Character development.




    You're probably safe on that one. However, in the last scene Shockwave informs Megatron that he's his father.



    oooops.
