    hey all, posted this in another thread and though the question deserved it's own thread

    Now that the cats out of the bag, isn't Shockwave's "gimmick" over?

    where does he go from here?

    the writers have said they "go with the tech specs, not the comics" when looking for inspiration. And quotes talking casette animals, smart Grimlock and backstabbing Shockwave as examples

    But Shockwave's underhanded, cold and calculating nature WAS part of his original tech spec, right?

    And how many one-eyed, super loyal 'cons does Megatron need? (ie Lugnut)

    Actually, I don't think his cover's blown yet. He only revealed himself to the Autobots on Earth, and Blurr had already gone through the portal. No one's gonna believe them unless someone on Cybertron sees him talking to Megatron and records the message or Wasp somehow found evidence before he was arrested.

    Exactly. It's going to be "Mission Accomplished" all over again. And you know it's going to bite the Elite Guard in the ass later.

    Yeesh, I'd hope Optimus has built up a LITTLE equity with the Elite guard (everyone but Sentinel) by now.

    I could see Shockwave setting up a communications blackout with Earth before Prime's crew can alert anyone - then coming to Earth himself to try to wipe out those who can 'out' him.

    Oh now that's a pretty good main story for the third season, specially if he came to Earth with other Deceptcons to help.

    Communications BLACKOUT.

    Hmm, I think I know who Shockwave might enlist to help get rid of the Autobots on Earth...

    Well, in Autoboot Camp, Megatron stated that Shockwave has size-changing abilities.
