    I know I'm probably going to get flack for posting this, but i have to ask: is Shockwave really dead? Yes, I know Optimus ripped out his eye, but since when is that fatal? I wouldn't be surprised if he had simply crawled off when Optimus forgot about finishing him, and moved on to Sentinel. Both Autobots and Decepticons have shown surprising resiliance. Take Brawl in the first movie; he went down once, and popped right back up ten minutes later. Also, QueJack keeps moving and talking EVEN AFTER THE DECEPTICONS PUT A BULLET THROUGH HIS CHEST! What I'm trying to say is, unlike the other various bots and cons that dies, Shockwave doesn't have a definetive fatality. Thoughts? Questions?

    Oh, nooo Shockwave is still running around. No eye or stoumach. Of course he's dead. You can tell by him not moving after Optimus approaches the building.


    Sheesh, all the movie forum is "Ironhide revival idea" and "Is (insert name here) dead?".

    No, I agree with you, there could be room set up for his return. The idea that it would take a lot more to kill him isn't such a radical idea. We see his body being moved aside by Optimus before his battle with Sentinel, but we haven't seen any final assurance he is dead. Also, his body is a good distance away from the battle by the end. Who's to say he couldn't have crawled away?

    However, getting part of your torso blown to pieces and having your throat and eye ripped out is some pretty heavy stuff to endure. But hey, it's ambiguous unless you consider how easily other Decepticons get killed. I root for "still alive" because I still think he's a high ranking Decepticon for a reason.

    Sorry to burst your bubble man but Shockwave's been mauled so much by Optimus and nest so badly it's not even funny.

    That screams "not coming back" if anything.

    You're right. For a Transformer, ripping out an eye wouldn't prove to be fatal. But spending five minutes taking fire from all sides from both human and Autobots, then having a hole the size of a VW bug punched through your chest and then having your eye ripped out? Probably fatal. ;)  He has about a definitive fatality as any other dead character.

    Optimus Prime gave Shockwave the "Wolverine" treatment by Piercing his torso with his fist.

    I dont get the whole punched his stomach off thing.
    All i saw was his side was punched off and his eye was pulled out.
    I mean, if Long Haul can be decapitated and still survive, then who knows.

    This.
    Optimus didn't just rip out his eye, he ripped it out through his throat. Which means he stuck his hand into Shockwave's neck, into his head and then ripped it out from the inside. So in other words, he violated the inside of Shockwave's head with his hand. And along with that, Shockwave still had that massive hole in his side.

    Whilst he definitely isn't as dead as Starscream, Megatron and Soundwave, he's still a lot more dead than Blackout, Brawl and Rampage.

    Since any TF could concievably be repaired if their head is more or less intact with an Allspark shard or the Matrix then yes, it is indeed possible Shockwave could be repaired. He probably won't, because he was just a minor villain. But he could.

    So could Sentinel, since he only had about a quarter of his face blown off, which Megatron wound up living through.

    When Optimus Prime says "You DIE," you're dead. Even without the murder-rage attack.

    Nope, not even close. Frenzy could, but Frenzy is designed to live as a head. Nobody else. Tfs are not Lego, they are mechanical beings. They may look like our robots and have higher endurance and are capable of surviving more severe damage, they are very far from invincible and bad enough damage to their bodies can be irreversably fatal.

    Even by your own rules this doesn't add up, since his head was severely damaged when his massive eye was dragged through it.

    No. He did not have "a quater of his face blown off" he was shot through the brain.

    He is dead but I think if they wanted to, they could have him survive. He may not have shown it in the film but he was meant to still be logical. They could have it that realizing he had suffered too much damage, he pretends to be dead so NEST doesn't kill him.

    It would be awesome to see him as the main villain of TF4. He could lead a few Decepticons that didn't go through the Space Bridge. Some really big and tough ones. Unfortunately, that is highly unlikely. It will just be either Megatron 3.0 or Galvatron, leading an army of easily defeated generics.

    How do you "pretend" to be ripped apart and beaten into mush?

    He's the best actor in the movies then.

    What's not to get? "...punched his stomach off..." is essentially the same thing as "...his side was punched off...". Optimus' fist freakin' ruptures Shockwave's torso-area.

    He probably is dead but he could still be alive. His hand didn't go in too far. Shockwaves Processor should still be intact and so is most of his head. If his spark is in the center of his chest and not the side, it should still be online.

    If you read the post I just posted above this one, I point out that his Spark and Processor should still online. I'm say that if they wanted to have him alive ,they could make it that after he got the crap beaten out of him, he was too damaged to fight on so pretended he was dead.
