    i think he is,even with his driller,he did not want to fight optimus in tchernobyl.

    but why?it would have been a great moment to have them get the fight they did'nt have at the end.

    It was abit weird that Shockwave only pulled a "lol hi" in Chernobyl. I thought it would've been a good que for a nice battle.

    I think he did fight Optimus in Russia, The burger king commercial showed them mele fighting. Then the way Shockwave just rises and says "Optimus" then runs away. Doesn't make sense. So I think there was a scene that was filmed but in the end it got cut for who knows what reason.

    I don't think so.

    Maybe Shockwave just wanted havoc and fear to spread throughout his presence. Optimus was the least of his worries.

    But I really wish there was a good battle between the both, maybe after killing Megatron Ratchet, BB, wreckers and Mirage would all help Optimus defeat Shockwave!!

    After shockwave has defeated almost all remaining NEST soldiers, it's up to the autobots to give it all they can.

    In the end mirage and the other autobots, along with prime succeed in defeating Shockwave, but not without major injuries. Maybe even one more autobot would die in the battle.

    wow, that would be so good...

    Not really.
    Shockwave's reaction was more like Megatron's reaction to Optimus in the first movie:

    Megatron - "PRIIIIIIIIIIIME!" *filled with joy*

    Shockwave - "OPTIMUSSSSSS!" *filled with psychotic joy*

    Damn, I would have liked to hear Shockwave voiced by Frank Welker some more.

    the whole point of chernob was for shockwave to set it up as if the decpeticons were wanting to hide the fact of SP being on the moon.

    To qoute Shockwave

    "It's only logical not to fear nor fight when outgunned".

    Prime took his suitcase to that vacation and Shockwave is barely clothed.

    I think it would be much better than the scene at the end. When shock wave is already functioning at like 40% his one and only eyeball hanging out , parachutes drapped all over him and then low and behold prime comes crashing in on to finish whats left of him.

    I think he was just there to make sure Optimus got the Ark's engine part and to make it appear as though the Decepticons wanted it for themselves, to sell the deception.

    I get the impression that the fight with Shockwave in the commercial is just the fight Prime has with Sentinel. They just swapped the models around.

    And yeah, the whole idea was just to lure Prime in so he could find that device. Had the fight taken place, Movie Prime would have likely eaten Shockwave's no-face and you wouldn't have had him at all after that.

    As Laserbeak said Prime took the bait. The only thing Shockwave's presence was supposed to do was make it so that Prime went there to investigate Decepticon activity and find the part from the Ark

    He feared him because he's Optimus fuckin' Prime.
