    Shockwave is a badass, he killed Blurr, is a awesome double agent, ever loyal to Megatron and just looks badass

    ....but then he did this:

    Shockwave does not lol! It just doesn't suit his character.

    Decepticons make Autobots feel fear but among them they have 'goofy times' :D

    That lol was a calculated response to psychologically attack Lugnut.

    I have no problem with the lolling.

    I don't like that they got rid of the cool, original colorscheme to make way for more G1-fanwank.

    Enough, you guys, seriously. A little fan wank is all well and good, but they're going overboard.

    What's the big deal? Him and Lugnut don't get along, so it's fine if he laughs at him. As for not fitting his character, we've only seen his character in one situation. Among his fellows where he's not on the run or constantly looking over his shoulder who's to say he can't laugh at someone he dislikes?

    pretty much this, he isnt overly stressed or anything now so he is as relaxed as he can be around his fellow cons.

    Sure they are! They're Cybertronian people. 8D

    Which makes me think... all the Decepticons really want to do is go home.

    That was one of my all-time favorite Animated moments just because of how ridiculously hilarious it was.
    The fact that Shockwave is a cold, calculating, brutal double-agent makes it even more funny that he randomly does a point-and-laugh at Lugnut's mishap.
    It was one of the few laugh-out-loud moments I've had watching TF:A. I had to rewatch that scene a few times. :lol

    This statement made me tear up a little.

    I like these sorts of scenes, as they make the Decepticons more than just rampaging metal monsters - despite being labeled as the villains, they're capable of emotions and interpersonal relationships, too. It's worth pointing out that throughout Animated, I haven't really seen much that would earmark the Decepticons as being truly evil.

    I loved that scene. Shockwave is still full of win...the scene only proved that he was also full of mirth.

    Of course, just him transforming is cool. Pity we might not see a stock footage of him.


    Shockwave = Best Decepticon in Animated and my favorite one, too.


    I'm glad to have a toy of him.

    Eh, it's okay. I still kinda wish Ani Shockwave was more like the Comics version... Ah, well.
