    Hey, If anyone in here lives in Chicago, PM me if they are still filming and where. My wife is in Chicago on a trip. Maybe I can get her to take some cool pictures.

    Both heads look great. Not really too fond of Soundwave's "Rawhead Rex" mouth he has going on there, but I'm guessing he most likely has a faceplate like Optimus Prime that covers his face in battle. Or maybe thats not the "actual" design either, but rather an old concept one from the movie's preproduction or a ditched head design from the second movie.

    My thoughts exactly... Spot-on. In the IDW Comics, Soundwave is incredibly intelligent and cunning. He even once managed to convince Starscream to retreat (Transformers: Alliance). And in TF: Nefarious, he's the Decepticon big bad guy and plots to take over the planet earth while "Megatron finish licking his wounds".

    If those two look that much evil as props, they'll scare the daylights out of me in the movie...

    Wave Brothers FTW!!! :thumbs2:

    Shockwave looks awesome. To me, his head design is the perfect update of the original G1 design. It's stylized, but still very recognizable as the character.

    Alan Rickman as Shockwave?...That's actually not a bad idea.

    So, to me, Shockwave's looking like a cross between Darth Revan and a Cylon. Which is extremely cool!

    Oh oh oh, and and

    When Shockwave is about to dismantle Bumblebee, his face gets blown out and when he falls, you see Megatron with his arm raised up and smoke coming out and he says "I still function..."

    Man I'm getting way too excited for stuff that won't happen.

    Somehow I just don't remember the mouth on Soundwave in Revenge of the Fallen. The rest of the design is nice how it combines past elements and new ideas, but the mouth sort of throws things off. I guess I just envision Soundwave as a ninja sort of character so the face mask just works for him. Still when you don't need a caption to know who a character is it's a good job.

    Shockwave a little worried about what could be a crap mouth, but still you don't need a caption to know who he is so a good job. Kind of a mix of G1, Animated and new ideas all rolled together. Actually kind of neat the way they make the eye stand out. Just too bad we don't have a character named Dave so Shockwave could say "I'm sorry Dave".

    If them two are beside each other, I hope Soundwave isn't being a goodie goodie tooostie to Shockwave, like he is to Megatron.

    Soundwave had insectoid kind of mandibles in ROTF..I have to admit the mouth looks a bit weird here, but I feel when we will see the final cgi model moving it will either not look like a gaping maw, or maybe just like the ROTF mouth.

    Shockwave looks promising..will be interested in his full body, and the eventual toy.

    Shockwave's head looks perfect IMO. Soundwave's is pretty much the toy design, only with a mouth. Perhaps he'll be like Prime and have a face shield up during battle.

    Mouth or not, Soundwave looks EVIL :eek: 

    Maybe he will have a mouthplate that retracts, like Prime has...?

    Can't wait to see them in their complete forms!!!

    It's not Shockwave at all - it's Megatron's new look since he got half his face taken off at the end of ROTF. This time he's just not going to bother with a face.

    Optimus: "Give me your - ah... dammit..."

    Soundwave looks more evil than Shockwave.

    Shockwave reminds me of that popular old song

    "It was a one eyed, one horned flying purple people eater
    one eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater
    one eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater,
    sure looks strange to me"

    no really it's an actual song.

    but I still love Shockwave

    At the end of ROTF Starscream and Megatron retreated together. Maybe in this movie it will be a pier six brawl all out slobberknocker tag team match!

    Soundwave and Showckwave as "The Wave Brothers" vs. Megs and Starscream.

    I can see it know howard finkel saying: "First coming down the aisle from cybertron...Soundwave and Shockwave "The Wave Brothers!"

    "Next their opponents from cybertron the reigning Decepticon Tag Team Champions Megatron and Starscream!" I can't think of a clever tag team name.

    Over and over in my head i keep hearing in my head Jim Ross saying "Soundwave just stomped a mudhole in Starscreams ass and is walkin it dry!" or "Megatron is runnin like a scolded dog" or even "Damnit Starscream put that damn steelchair down"

    It would make for a great IDW comic I bet and Vince McMahon would be all over it for Wrestlemania!

    Shockwave's face looks awesome! I can't wait to see his full body design, and what he transforms into!
