I never even notice a color change until my son pointed it out.
So whats the deal with them being all wishy washy with the colors?


Anyhow, the Dino's DLC is frigging awesome, hell I traded in GoW 3 for xbox points
and i couldn't be happier!

That Bot wrote:"Slag" has been retired as a name and an expletive because it's a derogatory term in British English equivalent to "slut". So the Dinobot is now known as Slug, and the turn-to expletive is now "scrap".


LOL

"Slug" is slang over here for Penis originating from the Australian navy.

When I saw the name change I assumed it was due to trademark reasons and was dismayed as it seemed a really bad choice for the above reason.

Now that I know the real reason I think the name change is absolutely hilarious!! :lol:

Next he could be known as "Slog" (even though a certain Pretender Monster already owns that name).

Nah. Hasbro should just OWN it. Change the name to Slag-Slug to be all mega hella über offensive.

Seriously. When has the USA EVER cared about offending other countries??? :-?

Both Beast Wars and Animated were censored because of it.

And, you do realize that Hasbro is not merely an American company, right? They have locations in place like Europe and Asia too, so why should they play favorites with their American branch and upset their other markets?

Ha ha! Of course. I was kidding about all that above. Just trying to bring a laugh.

Actually, I work a desk job myself, and I'm all too aware of the politics of naming, copyright, branding, intellectual property, etc.

BUT I wasn't aware they got censored in Animated and BW! That's nuts! Yeah, I think that would definitely persuade ole Hasbro to change a name or two. I like their attitude at Botcon when they say "We all know who this character is"... is spite of the name change.

Again, we owe you a debt for your contributions, Sabrblade. You know your stuff! :BOWDOWN:

Luckily, IIRC, G1 didn't the censored treatment, mostly due it barely airing in the UK anyway. Hence why the primary G1 continuity the UK held to highest canon regard at the time was the Marvel UK comics 9which, being comics, also didn't get censored). ;)

So... will we get some preview screenshots of the Insecticons and Hound like we did the Dinobots? I'd like to admire them like I did the Dinobots prior to release. ;)

If they do that, it might as well be "Sloth" and have him going around yelling for a "Baby ... Baby Ruth?!?" :lol:

We get a nice look at FoC Hound on the hunt for some insecticons in this newest promotional image from the Transformers Game Facebook page. He is available next week in the Massive Fury DLC pack.

Image

Here is the full pack list:

Multiplayer playable characters:

  • Insecticon, Kickback
  • Insecticon, Sharpshot
  • Insecticon, Hardshell
  • G1 Retro Optimus Prime
  • Autobot Scout, Hound

    Single player campaign items:
  • G2 Bruticus (Character skin)
  • G1 Shockwave blast cannon (weapon)
  • G1 Megatron pistol gun (weapon)
Image

People need to quit being butt hurt that the Bay movies are not G1. That's like saying you hate Transformers Prime because it's nothing like Armada.

Sweet! But hopefully they give us an "86 movie" pack with Rodimus, Kup, Springer, Arcee and Blurr since we have the Dinobots, Ultra Magnus and Perceptor.

I would, Cyclonus looks awesome as does Hot Rod. Kup, I'm not sure about. People online are already confusing Hound and his head with Kup, but if they did Kup right....maybe with his Cy-gar?

Different character model and different character. New guy based on the design of a different old guy.

Like how Energon Downshift looked like G1 Wheeljack, but wasn't Wheeljack.
