    So yeah, they used Shockwave for a Mini-Con in Cybertron, and there's the Shockwave Robot Hero. But until now, there hasn't been an application for trademark registration... and, looking at the info under the Trademark Document Retrieval, this is being filed as Intent to Use. If I understand this correctly, we could hypothetically be looking forward to Shockwave's mainstream return. Huzzah.

    Didn't we hear that Shocks is supposed to show up in Animated? Maybe Hasbro's just getting ready for his toy. =/

    Last I knew, Shockwave was confirmed for Animated, so this is probably the most likely use of his name.

    I would hope that it's for TF2 rather than Animated, but for both and Classics would be fine!

    You're all wrong - Shockwave's name should be trademarked so that Hasbro, Paramount and CN can put proper funding behind Dr Smoov.

    Joking aside, would love to see his purple goodness in any of the lines, though the trademarking process is likely expensive and would therefore suggest that it's the movie above all others that gets him...

    A Shockwave in any form (Animated, Universe, Movie) would be awesome. I'm personally hoping for all three. Not likely, but I can dream, can't I? :D
