Do these characters show up in the character creation area whether you've bought them or not? I went into this section last night after playing the SP for a while and saw all of these. I didn't buy this DLC. I entered the G1 Retro Pack code for Optimus and the guns. Are these characters included in that, or do they show up without being playable? I noticed some things were locked to be bought with in game points, but I didn't pay attention to these.

Awesome. Only 3 weeks for the Dinobots. This. Will. Be. Epic. Looks like we get Hound on the 25th of next month in that last pack. I wondered when with him being in the trailer for the retro pack.

yup, they pretty much flipped off everybody that preordered the game for the incentive.

they couldve waited a few months. Poor show

on the plus side, now i dont feel so bad picking it up friday with no incentives since i'll buy them in few weeks when i really hit multiplayer

Too bad about the pre-order incentives, thankfully I'm not that interested in the Insecticons. But the Dinobots WILL be mine! YES! (I wonder why no Sludge though? Too big?)

Snarl was my first TF and is still one of my favorites because of it. VERY excited to get to play him in the game, even as "just" a multiplayer skin...

Guys, it is an industry standard that preorder bonuses get released about a month or 2 after launch. The incentive is you get the stuff first, not that you are the only ones that ever gets it at all.

There are only 4 multiplayer classes. Also, playing through the game will make you understand.

If that is how you want to see it. The better way to look at it is that the preorder bonuses are free with the purchase of the Insecticons and Hound. If you have the preorder bonuses already, you aren't really getting them again, you are just getting the other stuff.

A lot of companies do that. It's not new. Crummy, but not new. The first game had 3 retailer exclusive multiplayer skins, too. People were paying upwards of $60, according to completed auctions on eBay, for each one. About a month later they were included in a character/map pack with those 3, 2 or 3 more characters, and 4 maps for only $10. I thought it was awesome they released the other characters. I don't mind that the one I already had was included as it was a tough choice between Jazz and Shockwave. I feel bad for the chumps on eBay that paid those ridiculous prices, but if you can't wait then you can't wait.

I'm sure glad I get a chance to get the G2 Bruticus along with 3 insecticons and Hound. You still get 4 unique characters just like you do with the Dinobots DLC. Most likely, they'll be the same price, too.

I figured it would be made available later, I just assumed it would be available G2 Bruticus and no one else. Which would not have been a loss for me.

Also, Sharpshot = Hound?

I mean, I'm glad to be getting Hound, but why is he being called Sharpshot?

In any case, I was using the Slingshock weapon today, and so I'm glad to have that already. That's one thing I'm sure of.
Here is what I'm looking for:

Scout:
Windcharger (RTS), Dune Runner (HFTD), Beachcomber (ROTF), Brakedown (ROTF), Oil Pan (ROTF), Breacher (HFTD), Crankstart (HFTD), Sky Stalker (ROTF)

I don't know why people are upset that its out one the first day, or that the G1 retro pack is available WITH the insecticons. It was a pre-order bonus, not an exclusive. It just so happens that this pre-order bonus was exclusive to EB/Gamestop just like G2 Bruticus was an Amazon exclusive.

My only gripe are the Magnus & Blastoff colors and that you can't play as sludge in the DLC.

I would gladly pay for more G1 skins!

Same here. Why no love for Sludge!? I'd gladly pay for him to complete the dinobot set. I hope they have more skins and maps coming down the road, and plan on completing the Dinobot set.

nopes. IIRC, Sharpshot is Shrapnel's new name.

I still want to see Arcee and Slipstream added back in. They said they took them out because of the customization. Those character's parts wouldn't work on other bots being male vs female bodytypes. I say screw it. Just make them available as full sets so people can still play as them.

I nominate Arcee, Slipstream, and Sludge to come with the first map pack DLC.

Not calling for them now, as we already have and are gettig so much, but maybe we can get some Wreckers characters in the third installment of the series.

so instead of selling the retro pack on its own they include it in a DLC pack with other stuff effectively screwing over the people who preordered, and here i thought HMS was one of the good companies. And i like the lack of campaign DLC, if your going to get me to spend $10 on DLC it better add alot more than just a few characters for online. For $10 i can go and buy a full fledged game thatll actually have some value to it.

Yeah im a little pissed with this. In the UK you can get a basic copy of the game for £35. If you want the G1 Pre-Order bundle its £45.

If you dont bother with the pre-order its actually cheaper to just wait and get the DLC and you get all the extras too instead of buying them again.

HighMoon, one of the GOOD companies? Now remind me, was this before or after they basically gave their consumer base the middle finger. And stopped responding to peoples pleas to fix the untold number of glitches and issues with multiplayer in WFC? Give it a couple months, I'm hoping more than 6 this time and lets see if they suddenly drop off the face of the earth. As for the skins, unless multiplayer really picks up on PC, and I get the feeling it won't, not even gonna waste my money on this.

They are owned by Activision. They were expected to stop working on it when WFC stopped getting much traffic.
