TBH, the robot mode is nothing new. Just looks like Ironhides arms, Primes legs, and the front of the truck for the chest with the halving thing like what movie/prime bumblebee has. Meh.
Vehicle looks sweet though, with the windshields that style too.

So they can waste time making stupid promo crap & books no one wants but they cant take a day or two to make a patch? Think its time to run up to gamestop & trade in FoC. I cant at least get some of the $60 i wasted on that half assed game. But anyway the new ford ranger looks like crap, but its a good alt mode to pick since they are extremely hard to kill.

What do you play on? I still think the multiplayer is tons of fun till this day even after having some roughed out games. I play on PC and my only real problems are the lack of players sometimes, roughed out lag (but tons of games have lag so whatever) and the annoying moments when colliding with another player while your in alt mode and they're in bot mode, and you get shot violently through the floor collision to get trapped under the map. What problems do you guys encounter?

I got stomped through the map 3 times in PS3, in all the thousand hours I played.

Sometimes there's a bit of lag, but then I just rejoin and get a better match.

NO SERIOUS PROBLEMS HERE, half assed game, have you even played singleplayer? It's a great game!

I also think torrent people would complain about the game :)

I believe the term "character" is used loosely in regards to this new promotional vehicle.

Are these promotions leading up to anything concrete like dlc or something? If not it's a cool idea but not really notworthy. Personally I'd like to see Highmoon introduce some transformers prime skins into the game, as I'm really a fan of the new of the new tf asthetic.

I'm surprised to see so many complaints about patching the game. I've been playing it almost daily since launch and am quickly closing in on Prime Mode. The only issue I have is with the Scientist's Gear Shredder, which seems a bit overpowered at the moment.

High Moon has been attentive up until now, haven't they? I remember two balance patches and have bought all three packs of DLC. I've been thrilled with Fall of Cybertron and it's been a huge gift to me as a Transformers fan.

Love this concept art, too. I plan on buying their art book for Christmas since I love their style. I like their aesthetic and it's cool seeing bots with real world alt modes!

Okay, I may be a little late to get on the knowledge train here, but....what's the bottom line of this, will he be available in the game? Made as a toy? Just a car commercial?

Cool! I love the Cybertron aesthetic. Now that it's applied to real-world vehicles, I can visualise the type of Transformers I'd want mine to look (I'm writing my own fan-fic :P)

I definitely prefer the look of 'Falcotron' (despite the name), but I also like Torque, despite the fact that the only really defining alt. mode visage is his chest...Looks a bit 'bolted on'. :P

(BTW, I know he's generally grumpy, but does anyone else get the feeling that MegatronWolf is just here to complain? Every new story; there he is whinging about stuff...Sometimes I wonder if he is actually a Transformers fan...! Haha I know you're free express your own opinion, but seriously...Positivity! XD)

I've been compiling a scale list (largest to smallest) of the Film Transformers based on; vehicle/alternate modes (with the best dimension data possible), as many official charts I could find & most crucially, the figures I actually own & desire! If anyone would like a bit of assistance in scale or would simply like a peek at the list, do say so! ^^

(Also been working on something big; I'm a writer, so that's a clue... ;))

I know exactly what you mean, Swiftknife. I like to imagine what "my own" real world vision of Transformers is. I prefer the IDW/High Moon type of look to the Bayverse idea. I would love to see a bunch more concept art from High Moon of real world stuff! I love the heck out of their team.

Awesome! Not that I don't like the Bayverse look (and credit where credits due for the ILM team), but High Moon Transformers are much more 'distinct' and if they were applied to cinematic universe, then people would see them more as actual characters than just 'robots'. ^^

(I know, characterisation is down to writing too, but it'd help! Haha)

Agreed, the Shredder is a bit overpowered, so is the Riot Cannon in rapid fire mode.

Still, they can make the tank walk normal if he shoots the scrapmaker to balance it out. I mean, he's big, he should be able to carry a scrapmaker properly.


As for DOTM, I wouldn't mind if High Moon slapped in all the models they made for the DOTM game, resize them a littlebit. The models/transformations/animations are there already, why not a cheap DLC to add those guys?

Who cares about consistancy, you have Dinosaurs with jetpacks, Flying insects, Trucks, Tanks, Helicopters, Space Shuttles etc.

They will have a licence problem with GM :/

I'd have a huge issue if they added the DOTM stuff. It's a different concept and the Bayverse designs wouldn't fit the concept of the WfC/FoC universe they've created. I don't think it fits.

So..........after reading through this whole thread....there's nothing to these guys? They're just concept art? That's kinda pointless. If it were going to be a toy or DLC or something, then I'd get excited, but if its just a picture on a forum..meh. Meh.


Also, why are there multiple comments of people asking to incorporate either Bayverse DOTM guys or PRIME guys into the game? How about NO. This game has G1 fans in mine, not the new "stuff" (and I use 'stuff' in a edited manner) Gee WON. :BOT:

Certainly not DOTM guys, but Prime guys? I wouldn't be surprised. Prime and FoC are part of the same continuity, as is WFC, Exodus, and Exiles.

I'm talking more aesthetics than anything. I know they basically "had" to make it the same continuity, but the designs are worlds apart.

Yes. Take a look at your signature picutre. There are just as many examples of how they are totally different, more if you factor Breakdown went from a car to a giant truck.

So yeah. My point is, not every likes PRIME. This game was geared more toward the G1 fan base than the Prime fan base DESPITE the "connection" in the story.

The story behind that is Breakdown upgraded into a bulkier body to clash fists with Bulkhead. If Breakdown was in FoC, that might have happened during the story.
