Well get used to it, which I'm surprised you haven't already, because nearly every major game does it.
I don't buy lots of games, but I do remember Halo Reach preorders unlocked a type of armor, Gears 2 preorders unlocked a golden weapon,...
But getting a specific character to me seems like a different ballgame. I mean, Sideswipe was in the 2nd movie, and now in the 3rd, and you only get to play with him in multiplayer if you preorder from a specific store??? Come on... that's very lame, and it was stupid in War for Cybertron too.
I know why this happens... it's to get people to (1) buy the game new and (2) get them to preorder from a specific store.
I know why it happens, and I am kinda used to preorder "perks", but that doesn't mean I have to like it nor do I have to find the Transformers games preorder stuff comparable to Halo's or Gears'.
