    wether Shockwave will be appearing in TF3 or not, it's curious to know if Bay and his team had him in the works for the third film, and the cameo was a clue from the beginning.

    THen again, I would have never guessed, amusing nonetheless.

    Congratulations on the spoiler in the title.

    I doubt the image of Shockwave (which I think is the version from IDW's Heart sof Steel) was any more than a Easter Egg for people to poor over the film frame by frame analysing every little detail. Much like the appearance of R2-D2 in the recent Star Trek film.

    I knew someone would bring the cameo appearance of You-Know-Who (No, Not Voldemort) in ROTF up. :)

    Someone at ILM probably added that. It wouldn't surprise me if Michael Bay didn't even know it was in there.

    Whoa, that's... kinda interesting to see Shockwave's picture in that newspaper.

    Amazing what you can find when you look closely at things in the movies...

    It probably had nothing to do with TF3, but its amusing that the newspaper title stated "Robot spotted"; I mean how come the autobots werent chasing after him if the newspapers had seen him? And why would an english paper be in Egypt? lol

    Ah, the pic from the TF Live Blog. Love that blog, the only one I go to for TF's besides here.

    Anyway, it was probably just an Easter egg. Story threads don't really carry over from previous films and hold significance.

    I remember that I thought Starscream was gonna have this super deep and mysterious story between the films and in ROTF. But in ROTF he just shows up goin', "Hey, sup? Got these new tatoos and I talk more too!"

    Sideswipe and the other new Autobots were the same way: the TF1 ending had me thinking, "Oh, this is gonna be a super cool story for the next film!" And then everyone shows up going, "Hi, I have a toy and no screen time!"

    I think it was just an easter egg. I think the guys at ILM picked one of their favourite robots who hadn't shown up in Movieverse yet, and threw him in there for fun.

    Might just be nothing more than an easter egg. In fact, that's likely all it is.

    Sure, it was likely an easter egg, but it's just a bit weird.

    It was just an easter egg at the time, but things are starting to unfold...
