Make him a Maximus class Cyberverse figure. Then make some Cyberverse FOC toys (of the bigger characters than Soundwave's minions) for him to interact with. 8)

no thanks. i'd much rather have a leader sized (or bigger) version... but we all know that'll never happen.

anyways. the best news i've seen so far is that the gameplay is longer than WFC. that's AWESOME.

What a knob! If you're going to interview someone then learn their name first. He seemed a little patronising too.

The fella playing the game earned an achievement. Could the game be all done and dusted? Metroplex is looking really good now though.

Is that true?! Hell, I thought WFC dragged on as it was, just running/driving/flying through pressing the odd attack button here and there.

Which is why I say make him a Maximus figure so he can be correctly scaled, as anything lower than a Supreme would do serious injustice to him.

i personally would rather have him done right (leader class or larger) or not done at all. if it were for cyberverse.. i'd have to place jazz, bumblebee, prime, shockwave, megatron, soundwave, and whoever else is coming out in the deluxe scale. plus, hasbro owes us something good and big. the last two large figures they've released were dreadful (3 if you count ultimate bumblebee) there was rotf devastator and "ultimate" prime.

you thought it dragged on? interesting. i thought it was good. i dislike games that i can sit down and beat in one night. did you play it on the easy setting? if so, that may contribute to only attacking "here and there".

i hope the controls are similar. i actually enjoyed the way you transform. . i also liked the way they worked it into rotf. for me it's not really a matter of liking it or not, it's just a matter of getting used to it.

i'm really interested to see how this "teletran" type weapons thing is going to work out.

i'm starting to come around to the fact that each level is meant for a specific character. i really like choosing my own character, but i noticed that i usually pick the scout type characters like breakdown and sideswipe.. but i think the way they have it set up will be good for story telling.

and lastly, i'm excited about playing one campaign that involves both factions. it REALLY sucked in the dotm game (that was probably one of the worst games i've ever played) .. but here, since it's longer, and the subject matter it should be fun, i like going back and forth, it definitely looks like it's going to help the story out. i guess we'll all see soon enough.

So we see Metroplex shoulderblocking a giant tower halfway down, then finishing it off with a titanic pimpslap

And we see Starscream sneaking up on a guy, kicking him in the ball-bearings from from behind, and shoving a facehugger bomb on his head.

I love this game.

Seriously, I can't decide what game I want to preorder first; this or Halo 4. I could order the Limited Edition of Halo 4 for about $100 (comes with camo-pattern for your Spartan IV and your Assault Rifle, an exclusive in-game emblem, and lots more) or get this for $60 for the awesome G1 Bonus Pack. Tough choices, tough choices... :-( :BANG_HEAD:

That Starscream looked amazing. I liked that second sneak attack too. Question though. Why does it seem that Starscream is attacking Dcons? We'll find out when we get the game. I'm stoked

That footage looks SWEET! =P~ If only I could afford any of the games and systems.... :cry:

•The story was developed in association with Hasbro and is cannon, no association with the films

Shouldn't that read, "and is canon"? A "cannon" is a weapon (eg. a Howitzer), where "canon" is an original source (eg. a novel). I really hate to nitpick.

Anyone else notice how many weapons there are in the Teletran-Store?? I cannot WAIT to try out each new weapon.

Until today,I almost totally forgot that Jazz and Cliffjumper are playable characters. #-o I've just been so focused on Grimlock & the Dinobots,Optimus,Metroplex,and Bruticus

Sneaking looks very cool, hopefully you can also sneak attack in Multiplayer.

Starscream's abilities are completely swapped, now he has Dash and Cloak. How are they going to do that? They are both time-loading abilities in WFC, not micro energon cubes.

The new Optimus looks great, I love it when there are fellow bots running around the battlefield.

Seriously hope they make a big fat expensive collector's edition for me to buy.

Courtesy of GameTrailers.com we have even more Transformers: Fall of Cybertron footage. The first clip focuses on Vortex, while the second gives us a look at everyone's favorite space T-Rex, Grimlock. The clips are embedded below.

This game looks way more action packed than the first game, which was loaded with action.

I like the way Onslaught, Blast Off, and Vortex were voiced. Slag going "excuse me" was a classic homage to the original 80's movie, when the Dinobots interrupted the trial on Quintessa. I seriously like the way this game is looking, but I'm still not sure whether I want to preorder this first or Halo 4... :BANG_HEAD:

Watching the Grimlock clip makes me realize that the Insecticon I was thinking was Chop shop in the game was really Sharpshot. Guess all that background noise at the convention drowned out the pronunciation of his name. :oops:

Grimlock and Shockwave call the guy by name in the game. Whoever they were talking to, it wasn't Kickback.

From looks of the character, Sharpshot is the new name for Shrapnel, just as "Hardshell" is for Bombshell.

I know this. All I'm saying that the Insecticon both Shocky and Grimmy were talking to wasn't referred to in-game as Kickback, so must have been Sharpshot, in spite of us seeing Kickback in the same room in this gameplay. Maybe both Kickback nd sharpshot are seen in this level together in different part of this room, or something.
