Shockwave Movie Head Design by MitGas Shockwave Movie Head Design by MitGas
A design for Shockwave for a possible sequel of 2007's Transformers by Michael Bay - It was my goal to combine G1 and the current look of the movie bots and hopefully please both fans of the old and fans of the new aesthetics.

A tutorial on how I did the dirt and scratches will be uploaded shortly. I hope you like it!

It's dedicated to Corey Burton because Corey rules.

HE should make an awesome villain for TF3. He's a pain to get in War for Cybertron DS. Does anyone know a code?

Hi!

Just a question, have you seen the leaked design of TF3 Shockwave's head?

It looks "shockingly" just like yours. Maybe they have adopted it, like they did with Josh Nizzi's Long Haul? Can you divulge more information perhaps? :)

I've seen it, yes. I wouldn't really say that it looks too much like mine, as the face is overall longer (kinda like Animated's Shockwave - although my head was ment to become longer when he talks) and the "ears" are turned forwards.

But that Soundwave sketch is an absolute tragedy. Why oh why redesign him to the point where he's not even really recognizable? No visor, some weird mouth with teeth - I'm disappointed to say the least that this was chosen. then again IMO Bay made a few rather dubious choices - I wouldn't put it past him that if he were to adapt Master of the Universe he'd give Skeletor the head of a leopard. I hope this is just an old face design used as a stand-in.

YEah, Soundwave has mandibles now. Granted, he did have those in ROTF if I recall right. But overall, I am not fond of the Bayverse redesigns. Especially considering some of them have names slapped on characters that don't even remotely resemble the originals... Sideswipe looked like Tracks, Jolt looked like G1 Skids, but his name was given to a horrible little character instead. And Wheelie, well he was a WALL-E ripoff. Most likely Bay thought he wanted to include a WALL-E lookalike and looked up which name would be the most closest thing to it.

I read many article about Transformers 2 : Revenge of the Fallen. I saw Shockwave not appear in Transformers 2 (Issue). But i love Shockwave because Shockwave is the most unique Decepticons (Have one eye & Purple body)

Wouldn't count on it personally. I sure hope for it as I'd like Shockers as the new leader of the Decepticons.

Hey MitGas,

I hope you somehow showed this design to someone working on TF2, because I wouldn't want to see Shockwave in TF2 or TF3 if he didn't look like this. This is movie quality material. Absolutely superb work!

If he's in T2, I do hope he looks at least half as cool as this.

The next one is confirmed for summer 2009 as far as I know. Don Murphy, one of the producers said something akin to this ( don't quote me on that now, I'm not sure) - the writers of the first movie will return along with Ehren Kruger.

cool, would be nice if there was a little less action and some chara development though. the first movie was cool but they never really showed the personalitys of the transformers (such as starscream being an opertunistic back stabber)

Is Shockwave a popular Transformer? (I don't follow it that closely). If so, he is probably my fav' transformer. Will you draw him in his giant laser gun form? That does look rather cool.

Your pic is extremely cool by the way.

Shockers is probably not one as loved as Prime or Megs (or Soundwave or Screamer, Grimlock, Jazz, ...) in Transformers but quite a few dig him a lot. I guess he's one of the top ten. And thank you!

Yay its Shockwave! Thousand glomps for making this ... do you really know if Shockwave is acually going to show up in the next movie/s?
Reply
:iconmitgas:
MitGas Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2007
Thanks for the glomps. I don't know if Shockers will be in movie 2 but with him and Soundwave being two the most beloved characters in most polls, I think there's a good chance that they'll be included. I doubt anything speaks against them as long as the fans might forgive different altmodes and Bay probably doesn't care much anyways about their personalities as long as they're cool.

A very crappy shockwave is in the TRANSFORMERS: THE GAME. He's a tripple changer. Inmobile cannon helicopter and of course robot.
