    I wasn't at Botcon, or whatever it was that showed the Shockwave clip/picture, so I don't know if they showed him being introduced.

    But this thread is for your thoughts on how he's bringded into the show.
    I think he should be bringded at the season finale, if this show lasts that long. I have at least three reasons
    1) It would be a good twist
    2) You'll have something to look forward for for the 3rd season.
    3).

    It's 'brought' not 'bringded'.

    Anyway, I'm happy with Shockwave being introduced at any point, whether it be the series finale or a few episodes before, as long as he actually sticks around and doesn't get killed off within one or two episodes of his introduction.

    Oh c'mon, you never heard Anthrax's "Bringded the Noise"?
    :banghead: 

    Okay, Shockwave being revealed brings many different concerns to mind.
    1. He's shown in a flashback, not to be seen again, thus making hopeful fans rage all that much more.
    2. He's the end-of-season introduction that makes the fans rage that the next season won't be around for awhile.
    3. His design isn't G1 enough, which makes fans rage and give the show/style even more inane and childish nicknames (if that's possible).
    4. Split Lip hates it (an inevitability :lol ).
    5. He dies within either the flashback or in one episode, causing mass fan rage and possibly the collapse of the western civilization.
    And the least likely possibility of all-
    6. He becomes a regular and characterful cast member.

    If he's around for any length of time, I hope he isn't a photo-copy of a previous incarnation. Personally, I liked his character in Animated and wouldn't mind the spy/assassin route, although being a scientist that created the Insecticons makes a lot more sense in this series.

    I'm confused. Surely this is a flashback, I mean, Cliffjumper is there. So how will Shockwave factor into the present?

    Come on, man. Surely you've considered that Shockwave may have lived on into the present?

    Well, what was he doing on his ass this whole time? Is he another stasis'd guy like Skyquake?

    Probably doing the same kind of crap that Wheeljack and Dreadwing were up to; flying around looking for something cool.

    So who should voice him? Corey Burton or someone else?

    If he couldn't come back to do Shcokwave again my choice for replacement would be Richard McGonagle (yes Victor Sullivan) since he has shared roles with Burton in the past such as Brianiac and A'bin Sur from DC comics.

    I picture his Shockwave much like how he portrayed General Grevious in the 2003 Star Wars Clone Wars series.

    I hope he gets voiced by Ron Perlman with the Slade voice. The voice just seems perfect for Shockwave.

    Can't wait to see what he looks like! For what we know so far he looks a lot like his WFC version but skinny like Soundwave!

    When he does come, it should be at the end of Season 2, then at the last minute of the Season 2 finale, he should kill Arcee.

    With the sudden events in the recent episodes (insecticons and talking con ship on his own agenda) I thinkShockwave will apear soon. I have a feeling Shockwave programed the ship to do his own bidding with out Megatrons knowledge of doing so. I think Shockwave will be more like his comic self and maybe even try to take over the cons.

    I squealed a little bit, jumped up and down, cried, and then posted "Yeah that's pretty cool" so I didn't look like a total fuddy duddy
