    Amazing. Does this mean we may actually see a Voyager Soundwave this time?

    A story about ShockWAVE and SoundWAVE posted by WAVEride. Coincidence? I think not!

    Anyway, they look pretty cool. Dig the mouth on Soundwave.

    Nothing wrong with making characters something old fans can recognize. It's worked well for Iron Man where the Iron Man armor and War Machine armor might have been updated but you could still know instantly it's the armor from the visual links to the comic books and cartoons.

    Spiderman got updated pajamas but even if you hadn't seen Spiderman since Spiderman and his Amazing Friends you'd still know who it was.

    I guess next the people who say a G1 influence can't work in the live action films will be telling us what an utter failure movie Prime is since there are a loads of G1 elements in his design.

    Shockwave looks amazing! Definitely one of the more accurate-looking Decepticons in the movie series. Soundwave looks amazing as well and I don't care if he has the mouth. I'm hoping he DOES have a mouthplate in some scenes though, maybe during battle; if so, hopefully the mouthplate muffles his voice to the point of giving us his distinct vocoder tone. If not, I'm still VERY thankful he's on Earth this time.

    Anyhoo, according to a size chart revealed during ROTF's prime (no pun intended), Soundwave is around Ironhide's height. Hopefully they changed that and that he'll be about as tall as Megatron and Starscream. If not, again, I'm still thankful for him being on Earth and in the movie as a whole. Atleast he's not a freaking iPod like he was going to be in the first movie. :D 

    Also, here's to hoping we get a Leader Shockwave, knowing
    he's supposedly the main villain this time

    Have you seen some of the earlier versions of Movie Prime? The one with the unicorn head. Making that change was one of the best decisions they made. It would've been so much harder to accept that unicorn as Optimus, and I don't think that goes just for the G-wun hardcore.

    I concede that some G1 characters are more iconic than others. Not everything deserves the same reverence. There's plenty room for reinterpretation and new stuff.

    But the typical response has been that if you don't like say Movie Starscream, you were obviously hoping for some ridiculously dated cartoon box-former.

    I love the way the head emulates the original Shockwave. I'm sure we're all glad he doesn't have *gasp* TWO EYES.

    I'm just hoping Soundwave's voice is right in this one. was really disappointing in the last one.

    The overall head designs I like quite a bit though.

    What the hell does it take to impress you G1 fans? Shockwave is as accurate as you can get.

    I'm hate to be a downer... but I dislike both of these head designs. Very much so.
    Soundwave's head looks like it could belong to any generic Decepticon. No visor, no faceplate, nothing. He could be any Decepticon warrior.... I'm sorry but his ROTF head was much more impressive, and I like it quite a bit more.
    Shockwave's head is... very drone-like. I know Shockwave's supposed to have one eye, purple head, and yeah, he does have both of these (which is good). But the head just seems so uninspired. Like, not much thought was put into it at all. Honestly, MitGas' head, and Pamonh Sisouk's heads (particularly "Option 1" feel much more creative and inspired than this does.

    I guess I should be grateful Shockwave's head at least is reminiscent of G1...

    I like both heads just fine..they're Decepticons, they're not supposed to be cute.. that being said... I see Shockwave's head and think.. "Red Bull"... and I see Soundwave's new face and think "Bring on the Kraken"... it just what I see.. :D
