TFPrime: Shockwave by Novanator TFPrime: Shockwave by Novanator
"Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I sure can't wait for Shockwave to show up in Prime! We saw clips of finished animation from BotCon, so it's only a matter of time! Golly gee wilikers I can't wait to see his design! He'll probably show up before the end of season 2 and that's just flying by-!"

*SUMMER LONG HIATUS*

:iconjesusfacepalmplz:

Yeaahhh... Imagining Shockwave's design was driving me insane and apparently no one in attendance at the last BotCon was capable of doodling a rough sketch of what he looked like. So of course, I had to take what little, vague description we did get and make one myself. Again, why I should never attempt serious character design.

Not as skinny or short as you thought he'd be, huh?

Wait...Where's his disintegration cannon? I mean, I know that the Primebots turn their hands into guns, but Shockwave isn't Shockwave without a cannon!

Just me being lazy. If I ever have the time, I might go back and at least give him a back-mounted cannon a'la Animated Shockwave's toy.

He looks a little.... "thin", in my opinion.

Intentional. What little description we did get of him from the folks at BotCon described him as being skinny like Soundwave.

Ahh. I'm used to him being bulkier, personally. Especially since he usually has that big ol' gun on one of his arms.

Did we get a specific date the show comes back or is it just "summer long?"

Anyway, nice pic. ...This going to sound stupid, but who exactly is Shockwave in the franchise's context (I only seriously followed Beast Wars and Prime)?

We actually still haven't gotten any confirmation. I'm just assuming it's a summer long affair since this is the first break we've had and a lot of shows tend to follow the same pattern.

He's a been a fairly major character in almost every other TF show. In the G1 Marvel comics he was basically a competent and much more powerful Starscream, who successfully overthrew Megatron on occasion. The G1 cartoon featured him as the Decepticon left in charge of Cybertron and changed his personality to be super loyal to Megs and this is the characterization that's stuck with him in every incarnation since. Also, there's this. [link]

Ugh. That sucks.

Pfft. :lol: When he finally shows up the first thing I'm going to take note of is his aim.

Well look at the bright side, it's still far better than Bay's rendition of the character :P

Meh. Bayformers Shockwave was fine design-wise. I'd say the same of his personality too, if they'd actually bothered to give him one.

Yeah, the Bay Transformers designs were all over the place some were good, some were decent and others...just why*cough*devastator*cough*.

Yeah. They had some really cool designs and general ideas, but so many more just ended up fugly and the overall design aesthetic ended up suffering for it. Shockwave and Ironhide are pretty much the only ones I feel are made of solid metal awesome. Hell, in Ironhide's case I actually wish they'd start taking more cues the Moviesverse, rather than recycle his boring, bland G1-Style head.
