I know people have been raging since DoTM first came out about Shockwave having his only English line; "Optimus!". But I think I have a thought on that. I understand Shocky talked a lot in the DoTM comic adaption and the novel, so I came up with this: Could Shockwave have had more lines if Corey Burton hadn't of turn the role down? I just have this thought that Bay changed the script around when Burton denied. I don't know, I may just be thinking too much.
