Anyone wished Shockwave kills one of the Wreckers?

Postby zwann » Tue Jul 19, 2011 2:04 am

Shockwave's awesome intro and appearance is not well justified. He should kill an Autobot at least.

I've noticed the Wreckers are always nearby Shockwave, and I'll be honest, BEGGED for Shockwave to kill one of them to justify his frightening appearance.

I mean, the Wreckers aren't really developed in the movie. Just like Jolt in ROTF.

Yeah, I was hoping the red one would die. I liked the other 2. And yeah, Shockwave was wasted. He looked even more badass than any of his previous incarnations.

Yeah, I didn't like the red one either. He could be a cannon-fodder. Top Spin and the other guy(Roadbuster?) looked cool.

Too bad these 3 aren't developed well. The NASCAR alt mode doesn't sense. I thought they're gonna be in a race track or something.

Yeah, it made sense. They were the pit crew for the Xantium. It made sense that they were race cars. And it was a really good cross-media promotion. I also liked the blue and green guys, but the red was annoying.

How could you find the Red one (Leadfoot) annoying? He didn't have that many lines and they were all relevent to the plot. The blue one (Topspin) you could hardley even see in robot mode. Roadbuster (green one) was awesome. Best design and character of them all! (well, i guess thats just my opinion ;) )

But back to the oringal question, i don't think he needed to kill any of them, but have a better battle at the end. I'm not sure if this has been brought up, but in the burger king promotional comerical, Optimus and Shockwave have an epic battle. Why couldn't that have been in the movie??

I liked all three of them (which surprised me) but I wouldn't have minded if he killed...all of them. He's one of the few characters to get NO kills, at all. Even Barricade got one and he was more of a sideline character than ShockWave.

Again, I don't dislike them, I just like ShockWave more. Course, it'd have to be a heroic death or something to give them a good way to end.
