    If he wasnt' dead and somehow came back in a comic tie-in, he'd only be around for an issue until he fell back in the Sarlac pit.
    Oops, whong character.

    I guess you could argue that Barricade saved him.

    We never see Barricade die so you never know...

    Yes we did, he was killed by NEST troops. They used sniper rifles to take out his eyes and then shot at him while he was down.

    Shockwave is dead. This is just fans wishing he hadn't died, but he did.

    Maybe, but how many threads do we need to see about Jazz, who was ripped in half? Shockwave was never given a difinitive death, so fans can speculate.

    I agree with you, I think it has a small chance of him being alive. look at the idea I had

    Has anyone thought that the shockwave can come back next filme.o breakdow in transformers, an eye torn, but realizes that the Decepticons vivo.se his superiors (sentinel and Megatron) were completely dead, the only hope was to create shockwave it was only to install another eye on him, to recover some pieces of it, fix it and then only the sacrifice of a Decepticon energon and make this sacrifice for the shockwave

    to any scene we saw someone pulling the column Shockwave, only the thread that includes the eye, that is only grabbing the eye, and how many characters have survival without an eye and then reset the eye and turned to be a threat

    To say the same thing I said in the "Is Sentinel Prime Really Dead" thread... He's dead, Jim.

    Yes, we did. He and those Decepticon Protoforms that were with him and Soundwave were all killed off by NEST.

    Yes. Optimus tore into him and caused the AstroMag cannon (Shockwave's choice weapon, named in reference to the Astro Magnum which I believe was the original Shockwave toy's pre-Transformers name) to misfire and take out the Space Bridge control pillar. Even though that's the last we see of Shockwave, the only chance he had of surviving was if Optimus interpreted the lack of a nose to mean Shockwave had no face to take.

    Of course, this was also super-pissed-at-the-Decepticons Optimus Prime, and he'd been kicking ass for the last 30 minutes straight, so it's more likely Shockwave went the way of the dodo.

    He's a Bayformers Decepticon, and since they're all made out of paper mache; I'd say he's dead.

    all the good decepticons are dead, its hasbro's move now, i think that new characters that people who arent big fans of transformers wont know off will be a bad move for the movies, most people now optimus is the good guy and megatron is the bad guy, their the two most important characters in the transformers brand. But bays films seem to have changed the two most important characters to optimus and bumblebee. A big change in cast usually makes a film less successful than its predecessor also, so without the main decepticons and shia etc. i think the movie franchise is in for a tough sequel to dotm.

    Hardly.
    But then again, giving his over-the-top Rasputinian death, I wouldn't be surprised if he was revealed to have a healing factor on the next movie.

    I'm...pretty damn sure Shockwave's dead. Insanely violent death aside, Optimus had a particularly vested interest in killing him at the time if you take Rising Storm into account; the dude killed Elita-1 and bunch of Prime's other buddies just a little while ago. I think that would drive Optimus to double-check his work on this one.

    ...Then again, I wouldn't put it past IDW to bring him back to life for the post-movie comics. I mean, look at Ravage.

    I...actually have no idea. o_O  That's been bugging me, too...he's been alive and well since the end of Rising Storm, but we haven't seen hide nor hair of him. I guess the movie was too busy pimping Laserbeak; after all, he's the one with the new toy. xP

    Although now that I think about it, Ravage's status as a hanging thread will probably be seized upon again by IDW, maybe even as some crazy way of reviving Soundwave.
