    For those of you who have seen Where is thy Sting, you'll see that Shockwave literally tears Ultra Magnus apart. Just two episodes he crushed Blurr into a cube!

    Where as Megatron brought Bulkhead to his base and gave him a job.


    Is Shockwave overshadowing Megatron as the biggest threat to the Autobots?

    It's possible. I mean, this could be what they want to. Get the focus off Megatron for a bit because he's 'lost in space'... so to speak. Easiest way to do that is for Shockwave to step it up a notch and be an even more evil son of a female dog then Megatron was.

    One thing about Shockwave though... I'm betting that he only took out Ultra Magnus because Magnus confronted him with knowledge of him being a spy. I'd be willing to wager that he's either gotten the heck out of dodge now and gone underground or he's on his way to Earth... or perhaps he'll meet up with Team Charr and then they'll all head to Earth.

    Shame though... I really wanted to see the smack down between those two. Magnus being who he is I simply can't imagine that Shockwave got away from this unscathed. Again, a shame we didn't get to see the actual fight.

    Shockwave is ruthless, at least Megatron follows some morals

    Shockwave season 3 thread (some spoilers)

    After seeing the first three episodes of season 3, i've found out that shockwave seems meaner and more ruthless than megatron himself (atleast in this series) im mean serously he almost killed or did kill Ultra Magnus!!!! ANd he killed blurr!! ZOMG!!! IM mean who's next, god!?!?

    Do you agree with me or whatever... I totally agree with what shockwave has coming his way.... any way thats my :2c: 

    discuss :popcorn

    Eh, honestly, Megatrons spent all his resources just trying to get to Cybertron. We dont know what he would do there.

    While Shockwave could just throw a pebble and knock over an autobot.

    The jury's still out.

    Russian, and yes, no one can top Shockwave. Shockwave is the Decepticon as far as I'm concerned.

    It looks like he smacked UM around with his own hammer so yes, yes he is.

    Would like to see the altercation that took place between the two. But I'm guessing that since Shockwave was already paranoid about him just a matter of time being expose that he stole UM hammer and hit him from behind while seating down, classic decepticon tactic :D . Just a guess. Face to face, UM would have dealt some damage to shockwave...

    Just like how UM took out Starscream in their face to face fight? No, wait, that was Magnus getting taken out by one shot from Starscream. While the element of surprise was likely a factor, Shockwave probably took on and beat UM.

    ...no, they really didn't. You got your accents mixed up, man. xD

    Anyways, yeah, Shockwave IS really badass... he's definitely way up their on the threat scale. Top of the food chain or whatever.

    i was really happy the writers didnt drag on longarm in the show, i hate when you know who the real traitor is, and they writers drag it on till like the end of the series. good to see this show is moving at a good pace :)

    Yeah I remember that. But wasn't that also the Starscream with the allspark fragment in his head.... the invincible one. :)  I wouldnt be surprise if shockwave did take Magnus out one by one. But I didnt see the hammer on UM... thats curious.

    I think Magnus summoned Longarm to his "chamber" and Longarm then transformed to Shockwave and just blew Magnus away. I guess we'll find out in some sort of flashback at some point.

    I like the fact that Longarm was on the defensive and now his secret is out, into Shockwave and just start slagging bots.

    I think a cool idea would be if Team Rodimus was tasked with tracking down Shockwave.

    Im putting my money on SW ambushing UM when he knows the game is up. From what I saw UM hasn`t got the message yet that LA is SW

    I'm not sure, I thought they also sounded vaguely hispanic. Their grammatical error patterns, on the other hand, gave me a very Russian/Eastern European vibe.

    Well, that's the thing (and one of the things that I really hated about these two) were that their accents were very very generic sounding to me. The grammatical errors sounded very Russian/Eastern European (and in my opinion the only reason peeps are saying that they even had Russian accents).

    However, I feel that their actual accents felt really generic... like the VA's were told to make it feel like it could come from anywhere in Europe... as there was a couple times they did almost sound vaguely Spanish. At the same time I wouldn't say that they had Spanish accents because Jetstorm sounded Romanian at one point... which was actually the only time I dug the accent they were using for them. Perhaps that's what they were going for?
