    I voted Yep for his design. I wouldn't call it great it's grown on me a lot and it looks a lot better from an above angle instead of below like the promo image showed.

    As for his portrayal, it was OK. His role could easily have been filled by Knockout. His voice sounded fitting enough but some lines sounded a bit to emotional for him. This version should have emotions but I think they should be toned down to fit his voice. And as a threat, he was about average.

    As for his fate, I'm not certain but given that he had an original CGI model, I'm sure he'll turn up again. I just hope he stands out more next time.

    I like the design. I can tell you this, Shockwave is all my son has been talking about.
    Everything comes back to "blah blah blah dad and Primer Shockwave"......
    I think that's safe to say my 3yr old thinks he's pretty rad.

    BTW he calls TFP primer....

    Shockwave had the best gunshot sound-effect i've heard on the show, without doubt.
    His gun arm is BADASS, and I quite like the power cable leading to his back, very Bayverse but still looks great.
    I think the rest of his design is a little generic, particularly the wings and torso, however, I think it's a success. I want to see more.

    The voice was excellent, and the design was okay. It seems as though his frame was Megatrons, with added parts. Not the most original, but still pretty good. Seemed like a filler design, honestly.

    As for 'too emotional', so what? I think he sounded cold and logical, but with enough emotion to add a sense of superiority and malice to his personality.
    Not everything has to be photo copies of G1 (which is why I was extremely happy he wasn't voiced by Burton).

    He was big and menacing.
    I can't wait to see his alt-mode.

    Given he was credited as being the one to re-discover and implement Space Bridge Tech, I won't be surprised if he figured out a way to get outta jail.

    yepp! ShWa overall is great but the voice I have to get used to.

    Last episode I expected more from him but he's not dead, he'll be in season three.

    Enough of the old designs to go hey it's Shockwave, but enough new elements to make him something different for Transformers Prime. Also nice to have another large menacing robot for the Decepticons.

    I figure he's lost in space somewhere and the episode was just teaser for him showing up later so it doesn't seem like he just appeared out of nowhere. A bit like how they teased Unicron before he showed up.

    I'm hoping his vehicle form is a tank.

    I like the design, which makes me want a Voyager toy of it (as a tank) to fight Magnus.

    Honestly, he better appear again. And seriously injure an Autobot.

    The tank alt mode is likely. In one scene where it's just his foot stomping down, you can see treads in his heels...so hopefully its a tank alt mode and not a flying mishmash of things like Megatron (who doesn't need an earth alt mode for w/e convenient reason).

    Well, his cannon makes me think self-propelled Artillery.

    And besides, most of the time his is a tank. WFC/FOC made him a jet for Variety.

    Hope we get to see more of him in the finale.
