"Someone's killing Shockwave...why do we want to stop this?"
Great use of the RX-8's folding torso to simulate Grimlock ripping Shockwave apart to get at his spark chamber. That was a suitably visceral "Grimlock is annoyed" move, and a great way to use the toy's transformation sequence to sell some Dinobot brutality.
I could almost hear the deadly calm in Prime's voice when he said he needed to know there would be no problem, too. That was actually my favorite part of the update: we all knew Grimmy would kill Shockwave in some excessively brutal way, and I wanted to know how Prime would react to that. You didn't make me wait at all. Well done, sir.
Oh, and welcome back to the boards! Life is treating you better, I hope.

Looking for a junker MP Megatron and an unbroken knee joint from Black MP Rodimus Prime. Please PM me for details.

Well, knew it was going to end this way. Shockwave was pretty much a goner the moment Big Grim showed up. Epic ending for ole' Cyclops here.

That was glorious. Tho it would have been cool to have Shockwave beg for mercy.

However, he is very much aware that Prime and a lot of the Autobots will certainly not see it that way. He's totally expecting to face some serious music for what he's just done, but for him that's just another occupational hazard for living by a code he swore his life to. It also worth pointing out that Grimlock in OOTDL has a deep, DEEP respect for Prime (backstory coming later down the line to shed a little light on Prime and Grimlock's past), which is why he'll go to the stockade on Prime's word, rather than just tell him to frag off.
Prowl, however, would have totally gotten told to frag off.
As for Twitter...Grimlock might well mention this incident at some point...
(Oh, and great DOTM reference!)
I'm currently averaging about 1 season every two years....I need to speed this up!
As for Swindle and Dead End, they were indeed last seen plummeting off a cliff. We didn't actually see the impact or the bodies, but a fall like that must have killed them, right?
But then, Me something of a sentimental old thing.
Wheeljack assures me that there is no truth to the rumour that energon cakes have the same effect on ponies as concentrated LSD. None at all.
Sunstreaker assures me that if Wheeljack is wrong, he's got more than enough softcore antipersonnel rounds the armoury to cope. Can't have powerful magical wildlife trippin' balls in the Autobot base. No way. Ain't right.
Also, Me Grimlock say
There's also ANOTHER reason for the delay, which could be SUPERCOOL but also might amount to nothing, but if anything ever develops on that front I'll post about it in more detail. For now, I don't want to jinx it.
I'm really glad the RX-8 has an opening chest, it saved me a ton of FX work. One of the nice things about Transformers having TF schemes and pop-off limbs and kibble is that your GIMP time can be carefully cut down if you plan your injuries well. Laziness drives everything I do

Well, as they say: "Revenge is a dish best served cold."
That was cold. XD

Amazing storytelling, good shots and posing. And hell, I've read through 3 years of awesome story telling!
The more I read, the more I feel for Windcharger and Grimlock. This is fragging good!

You know, shockwave COULD have switched bodies (to a cybertronian all surface dragster maybe?) and that was a "clone" with a modified spark, maybe a corrupted old autobot spark?
And Coolhand, you and your wheeljack got 20% cooler with that energon cake study.

Ripped his spark out and fed it back to him. Nice.

But yeah, this is one of those times when someone actually just effin' takes out the villain who's had it coming for a long time. Usually very satisfying, even if Shockwave was a cool rather than just simply despicable villain.
