    That's from Wikipedia. While from other sources, got no mentions or references that points to the forthcoming appearance of Animated Shockwave. Any ideas?

    That's interesting, and hopefully it's true. As far as I can remember, all that we officially know about him is his name and who's voicing him. This sounds really cool. Especially the whole meantor part.

    I don't know about this ? Wikipedia can be edited by anyone so we do not know if this is fact, lets just hope it is !

    I wouldn't go to a wiki(even the Transformers wiki) for news.

    i'd take it with a grain of salt, although we do know the Shockwave will be appearing as he was amongst the list of characters when they started auditions.

    "His Power of electricity can shock you very hard" doesn't sound like anything very official to me...

    Yeah... No. Don't believe everything you read on Wikipedia or IMDB.

    We knew he would be appearing and the voice actor, but the wording of the extract makes it seem dubious.

    The facts as I know them are that Shockwave will be in animated and he will be vocied by Corey Burton. Everything else is speculation, Kickback has said that he is very G1 but with one major difference that fans may not like and there was a rumour that he turns into a tank.
    This being Lugnut's mentor thing is completely new to me.

    Goddamn... hearing some new Shockwave voiced by Burton is one of my few fanwank dreams come true. If he ever reprised Brawn as well, I'd officially have one of those geekgasms people constantly talk about.

    My guess of what the "one major difference" that Kickback is referring to is that Shockwave will now have 2 eyes and/or a mouth. But if he is still purple, has the cyclops eye and a laser hand, I could care less what he turns into. Hell, I'd actually welcome him being a tank since I've never been on board in TF's turning into guns.

    Shocky is my all time fav character, so just the fact that we're getting him in Animated at all is a great treat as far as I'm concerned. I just hope his homage is closer to what they did with Grimlock than any of the other established character redesigns.

    The Energon toy was Shockblast (slight rename because of trademark issue), and was repaited as Sixshot, but definetly was meant to look like Shockwave. As for Classics, no, he wasn't as far as we know, planned for the line. The only moddern toy that we know of that was planned was a 6" Titanium Shockwave that turned into a gun. Hopefully Animated Shockwave gets a toy incarnation of some kind at some point. Preferabley a Voyager.

    Movie Shockwave was a tripple changer with an artillery cannon and an Apache assault helicopter as alt modes.

    Too bad he wasn't in the movie or had a toy.

    hmm, thats even more interesting, if i read a rumor and somebody verifies it then that suggests its more likely to be true, esp if that somebody has insider info :)

    I'd actualy like some kind of mouth, I find mouthless Transformers creepy.

    If you wanna do it, atleast give him some kind of mouthplate!

    Something TF fans wouldn't like about Shockwave...

    Flames?
    Can actually hit something he shoots at?

    Hmmm, personally, I don't like his not being mentioned alongside Skywarp, Swindle, Blurr, and all in the new toys...

    Perhaps Shockwave is the autobot traitor?

    God.
    I can't freaking believe I never noticed he said BLUE in that part of the music even though the whole music talks about blue, I thought it was just "I'm *giberish giberish*

    Oh well, about Shockwave, if he's blue it's probably because they didn't want him to look too much like Lugnut.
