USA Today has published a couple of interesting articles featuring Transformers DOTM's new villain Shockwave, and both reveal an interesting fact about the character. The first article features a new image of Shockwave (seen below). Click here to read the rest of the article and check out the rather spoiler-ish detail.

The second articles reveals that Shockwave has made their list of top 12 most wanted summer movie villains! In fact he's #3 just behind the Red Skull and Lord Voldemort. Again click here for spoiler-ish detail as it's mentioned here as well.

"He's always been a mean, mean guy, but he's even more menacing and more dangerous," says producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. "He's bigger, badder, with a greater arsenal."

This just goes to show you how dumb the media is nowadays. Do your research before you write the article next time, idiots! The cyber-snake is Shockwave's PET! :BANG_HEAD:

I wouldn't be shocked if Shockwave could morph simliar how he could in Transformers animated. I'm guessing that huge beast that knocks over the skyscraper in the trailer isn't shockwave though. (I've been referring to as the dweller till an offical name surfaces as it reminds me of the dweller of the deep from G1.)

You two are absolutely correct.It would be hella weird if Shockwave transforms into something that big and it has been revealed that the snake-like bot is his pet not his alt mode.Though there's a spoiler that said that he can ride the snake in his "cockpit".

It's just simply known as a "Driller" in the novelization.

The only thing revealing in that pic is Shockwaves penis. It's like one of the sheathes a horse or cat has. :P

Heh I guess I was pretty close then.

Here's a random thought: I wonder if SHockwave somehow merges physically or mentally with the Driller...but I'm not going to read the book to find out.

If this is true, even though it's obviously not, but I thought Bay said no size shifting? Why would he say that for the first two movies, then have Shockwave turn into something larger than Devastator?

Wait, so what they're saying is that Shockwave is, in reality, the Mecha-Kraken?!?!? But Shockwave is just too small to be the Mecha-Kraken! Too small!!! :BOOM: :BOOM:

Shockwave rides in a cockpit on the Driller's back and it's said, in the novelization anyway, that he has a telepathic link with it so it's loyal only to him.

You stole my thought First-Aid. That's a possibility.

Well, for your information, I read the spoiler about Shockwave piloting the driller, and I'm very disappointed that I did. That's lame to me, on the same lame level as having the little bug spy bots in ROTF. Can't entirely explain why, but I found that part lame, and I think I was happier under the idea that the driller was a sentient robot itself, not robo battle cat. Plus, I don;t think I've ever used the spoiler tag before.
