    Ok so I'm in the minority (again), I dislike both of those heads.

    I personally think soundwave will look better when its in cgi . I think its just the weird way they have the picture.

    I really like shockwaves head. Kinda looks like he has side teeth. bug sorta thing when he talks or along those lines

    ....Why would they change Soundwave's head to be stereotypically evil, when they already had a perfect head for him in RotF? What's the logic behind that? I dig the added blue, but the 'rex' mouth just looks awful and out of character, both for G1 and the way he was portrayed in RotF. I really hope that he has a permanent mouthplate on in the actual movie.

    Shockwave looks ace, though. The earfins are weird, but that's not a dealbreaker.

    Not overly keen on Soundwave's teeth at the moment, but there's plenty of time to warm up to that though.

    Shockwave on the other hand is fantastic.

    looking back at ROTF soundwave, i think i like the idea of no mouth better. maybe a retractable battle mask like prime

    It does seem odd that megs and screamer don't seem to have been given the chicago head-stick treatment. I really hope for a shot of the four main cons together.

    I still have my fingers crossed for an appearance by lazerbeak, rumble or ratbat. Operation: Fanwank.

    Shockwave is awesome, they absolutely nailed the look, perhaps even moreso than animated. I will admit that the mouth on Soundwave looks a little weird, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. Movie Prime's mouth bugged me at first too, and now I can't imagine him without it. Maybe they added the mouth so Soundwave could attack by screaming. I can imagine the scene now...

    Shockwave: Come Starscream. Your ascendency to godhood awaits you.*flies off*
    Starscream: Of course my lord!
    *Megatron grabs Starscream's leg*
    Megatron: Wait...*cough* Starscream...I still function...*cough* don't leave me here...
    Starscream: *stomps on Megatron's head* Twice you had your chance to lead us to greatness, and twice you FAILED! My days of blind loyalty are long gone "Lord" Megatron. Soundwave! Finish this pile of scrap and the rest of these fleshling maggots as well! *Flies off*
    Soundwave: As you command.
    Ironhide: GET BACK! HE'S GOING TO-
    Soundwave: bvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvwumwumwumwumscrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

    *BOOOM!*

    Am I the only one who doesn't see Shockwave's mouth?

    Also it almost looks like Soundwave has a huuuge mouth. From his mouth there is a black line that basically ends to underneath his last eye. And along there it's what looks like two huge teeth along the one side. Before I just saw the normal Megatron-sized mouth. Kinda reminds me of a dog, or lion mouth. Or maybe that's what everyone else is seeing and I just noticed it. :dunce  Or maybe his mouth isn't that big at all.

    Excellent. I also liked Soundwave's mouth plates in ROTF (as you can see from my avatar) - so presumably he has an Earth mode this time round, and is slightly different as result. Shockwave is undeniably, well, Shockwave. Having both these characters in the film for any length of time is only a good thing.

    Bring on the robot design reveals already...

    is it just me or does it actually look like people are exited for this movie and feel they are actually doing it right this time?

    guess we'll have to wait and see!
