The overly hyped badass villain that barely says a damn thing. Any thoughts?
And lost a battle involving blindness in a humiliating fashion.
He is kind of like him. But I think boba got some kills.
boba was much cooler. shockwave was pretty much all hype
Boba Fett - briefly seen, instant favorite
Shockwave - advertised extensively, ultimately a waste
He was the Devastator of DOTM.
Perfect, now everyone hates Shockwave. Waytago Fanbase.
Atleast Han showed some real concern and fear that Boba was around. "Boba Fett! Boba Fett! Where?". Boba also had VOCAL communication with Vadar.
Its the opposite....we all love Shockwave. Bay's deliberate misrepresentation is an insult to us all.
thats why I called him the Taco Bell cup guy. Kind of like the scorpions in Clash of the Titans too. You know, the big menacing , cool looking thing , and then barely in the movie but looks good on your fast food cup. I almost expected it. Still kick ass he was there , so Im not complaining. Although now I know why it was silly to worry about his voice actor.
btw i was at BK today, they have some cool lookin little bobble head type things, the shockwave looked kinda cool, like if I actually had a work desk these days
edit: you guys are makin me want to watch some star wars more than id like to admit, oh shit, it begins....
That was your 666th post...crazy.
I actually liked how Shockwave was in the movie. But it lacked one MAJOR thing: An introduction. If he was really introduced to the audience, the way he was portrayed in the movie would have been perfect.
A silent assassin that doesnt get much screentime, but that everyones afraid of. I love it.
No, just to you. He deliberately insulted YOUR childhood.
Shockwave would be the Boba Fett of the Movieverse if Boba Fett had a pretty big role in the original trilogy and had a ton of lines, action, etc. and he shows up in The Clone Wars just standing there silently, just looking cool.
So he's not really the Boba Fett-type character in my eyes.
I actually thought he was pretty cool for the moments he had.
LOL It has nothing to do with my childhood or G1. Shockwave is a menace. He's an Evil Spock-Nuclear weapon/WMD. Not a mute giant pacing the streets. If it was only me, this thread and all the others concerning him wouldnt even exist.
Sorry, but the Boba Fett of the movieverse is definitely Barricade.
If we're gonna go with Star Wars comparisons, Shockwave would be General Grievous.
I'm happy I visited this thread, just for this response!
We don't hate the character, we hate that a brilliant character was wasted.
The difference between Boba Fett was that when he showed up, he did AWESOME shit. Shockwave didn't DO shit. He was just there.
I agree. Even though Shockwave was as awesome as he was, he should have done more. Or at least have killed someone.
