Well, I'd say Shockwave has his desires when it comes to leading the Decepticons. Now on to Starscream. Other than being a meaningless character, I've come to the conclusion that they got his character wrong as well. Any characterisation he has is a nod to fans anyway, but it basically proves the Orci and the other dude just didn't know their transformers that well. IF you notice, in every seen Starscream's in, he grovels to Megatron. Almost in fear. You really don't see any ambition of wanting to subplant Megatron and rule. Now granted Starscream is hardly a character, if a character at all, and clearly the movies don't focus on the villains enough for any of them to be developed in anyway. I'm just pointing out that the nod we fans were given is also a discredit to the character of Starscream as well. Starscream would do anything to save his own ass, but he never really groveled to Megatron, and he'd be the first to call him a moron if he screwed up. Any other time he was pretty much being a smartass. Starscream in a nutshell and here Those two scenes clearly show what Starscream is all about, nothing of it is represented in the movies.It's just sad that we could have had proper portrayals of these characters on screen, and I'm sure people would have loved it.
