    I decided to make this thread in honour of Shockwave. Tell me a logical answer which version is your favourite?

    I'm only counting the versions with one eye only..........

    My favourite is the WFC/FOC, nice design and interesting role as a scientist along with a cool voice.



    Oh yes, someone (or me) make a poll thread for Megatron, Starscream and Soundwave.

    Shockblast was fun. After that, I guess Animated.

    I wouldn't consider myself a particularly knowledgeable fan about Shockwave. I mean I've seen G1, whored myself for the games, saw Animated and Prime, and read the IDW comics (or some of them anyway). Okay, typing it all out maybe I'm selling myself short.

    My point is, I wouldn't say I'm perfect qualified to answer this. But from the ones I'm knowledgeable about, I chose WFC. It could have easily gone Animated or IDW though. And of course G1 is a classic character for a reason. F*** the movie though. I chose WFC because I like seeing Shockwave as an amoral scientist and that game series definitely shows him in that light. ( And no, I am not lumping Prime into this series because they aren't the same continuity.)

    So I guess my real answer is, which ever Shockwave you like best.

    While my favorite design for him is WFC, my favorite portrayal of him is G1's logical war lord from the Marvel comics. He did not conquer for power but because it was logical for the strong to rule the weak. He was so dictated by logic, he willingly stood down from command when presented with a good argument against his leadership.

    I also loved how, with there being no past versions of TF that they HAD TO go by, they made him superior to Megatron seemingly more important too.

    Because I say it in every 'favorite Shockwave' thread- that abomination in Energon was SHOCKBLAST, NOT SHOCKWAVE.
    With that out of the way, I'd vote as follows:
    Marvel G1 - for reasons already mentioned. Also, he was on the best cover of all time (#5).
    Animated- he kicked Ultra Magnus' ass, and brought Blurr to a 'crushing' halt. What's not to like?
    IDW- the 'couldn't care less' attitude works for him.
    DotM- while not much of a character, in the comics he killed many an Autobot. That, and I like the design.

    Look at the OP, making a thread over who is the best Shockwave without any (blatant) comic options. That's like asking who the best Batman is and only giving movie options.

    Clearly it's Marvel G1.

    i second the need to differentiate between the toon and comic G1 characters just because they were so different.

    im voting G1 comic all the way.
