    So it looks like the "glowing eye" was actually part of the cutout art and not an actual light. That's cool trickery. I approve of Shockwave's head.

    I also like how they made Soundwave unique while still recognizable. The headcrest and "ears" were more then enough but glow of his 4 red eyes actually come together to give the impression of a visor ala G1. A very nice touch.

    Soundwave looks awesome. Very demonic and evil. I'm glad he doesn't have the vocoder for this incarnation, with a head like that, he wants a more evil rasp.

    Shockwave looks incredible too. Very nice update of the classic design.

    Why does Soundwave look like Beavis to me?

    Keep in mind Soundwave could have a mouth plate he uses when in battle. I love how these both look and im so excited to see Shockwave's full form!

    They both look great, though the mouth on Soundwave will take a bit of getting used to since it seems quite a bit more noticeable than the one in ROTF. Would be cool if when he isn't speaking, his mouth looks like a faceplate. Regardless of what they do, Soundwave looks awesome.

    Does Shockwave have a mouth? To me it doesn't seem like he does, but then again, this isn't the clearest picture in the world, so I could be wrong.

    Now, I wonder. Since they have these heads on poles, does that mean the actors will be interacting with Decepticons that aren't chasing them? Maybe we'll get some cool dialogue moments between the two

    I like the head designs alot. I just hope the rest of Shockwaves body is purple. I also think that Pierce Brosnan would be a good voice for Shockwave if its tweaked a lil

    You know, even if I somehow knew in advance that this movie would suck even more than RotF, I'd still be seeing it.

    Goddamn these guys look awesome. Sold totally. Shockwave is even more "G1" than his Animated design. And mouth or no mouth, that looks exactly like Soundwave.

    If I remember correctly the heads on sticks were used in the first movie whenever the human characters had to interact to the bots, such as when BB first transforms to fight Barricade and when Sam starts talking to him afterwards.

    I'm guessing this has to be one of those moments as well. If the humans were just running away then they wouldn't need them, so this could mean more of the Con/Human interaction we got a taste of in RotF.

    Shaft me sideways, Shockwave actually looks Shockwavey. I was expecting six eyes and a mohawk. The little mouth thing, eeh, I can live with it. As long as he doesn't open his face to display a huge set of gnashers.
    Soundwave though I'm not loving all the teeth. I remember when the idea of teeth on a live-action TF was considered a tremendously stupid thing. Human-like mouths even too. Nowadays the world and its wife have a couple of rows (at least) of chomper pegs. Can't be an evil space alien robot monster without growly grills. Let's hope the cool and calm mouthplate Soundwave from ROTF still remains and he doesn't go all 'Grrraahhhhggh! I will eat you!' mindless animal since he's down chasing humans.

    They need a scene where Bumblebee is in a dark room for some reason, and a single red dot appears towering over him.

    "It was unwise to enter this facility, Autobot."

    I wonder if the two 'Waves are conspiring against Megatron in this film?

    Ooooh. So when Shockwave turns on the lights, Bumblebee sees THE WRECKAGE OF MEGATRON laying in front of him. And Soundwave is standing beside Shockwave.

    "As you can see Autobot, Megatron has failed the Decepticon cause for the last time."
