    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but I found this article that I thought was interesting on USAtoday.com

    Shockwave was ranked #3, beaten out only by Red Skull from Captain America, and Voldemort from Harry Potter taking #1.

    "Shockwave (Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, June 29)

    Secret weapon: Morphs into a building-destroying death snake

    The one-eyed Shockwave makes his movie debut after providing serious menace in the 1980s television series. "He's bigger, badder, with a greater arsenal," says producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. "And he's had a face lift." The trailer gives a glimpse of Shockwave's power when he morphs into a snakelike creation that cuts through Chicago buildings like butter — staggering even for Transformers.

    "It's a huge escalation in the amount of damage that one Decepticon can wreak," says di Bonaventura. "He's capable of wholesale destruction … that's really bad for humans."

    USA Today better shut up with this "Shockwave transforms into a building-destroying death snake" crap. I find it sad that they actually believe that.

    Not so sure on this being some crazy rambling. In the LP Music Video, Shockwave is shown to Transform out of the Driller (while still standing on it). Maybe he does transform into it to some degree, but not as accurately as described.

    My crazy guess is this: Shockwave and the Driller transform/combine into one of those Decepticon dropships.

    And you've seen the movie to be able to make such a statement?
    Really, do you actually believe that the novel is 100% accurate?
    Personally, I'll wait until I see the movie on the 29th to make such opinions.
