Transformers toy information specialist s250 has provided TFW2005 with an image of a fully painted Optimus Prime figure from the War for Cybertron game. It's difficult to tell the scale of the figure, but most people seem to think it appears to be Deluxe Class. This figure doesn't look to be at it's final stage yet, so it may change between now and release.
This image looks very different from the prototype we saw before. Is it possible we'll be seeing multiple figures? Or is this the new incarnation? Check out the image below!
More information on the War For Cybertron toyline will be provided as it becomes available.
The coming Tuesday, January 12th, video game website IGN will receive an extended trailer of the soon coming Transformers War for Cybertron game, slated for release this summer. To view two screen caps and commentary for the coming trailer, click here.
January 8, 2010 - It's not often that we tease trailers prior to their debut on IGN, but Transformers: War for Cybertron is an exception. That's because I'm a giant Transformers nerd. When I saw the two-minute trailer, I got a little choked up. Though it doesn't show off the gameplay, the lengthy trailer certainly gives fans reasons to get hyped.
The trailer, which debuts on IGN Tuesday, January 12 at 9am PST, reveals a handful of Decepticons and Autobots battling for control of Cybertron. For every Autobot shown there's an appropriate Decepticon counterpart, which means as soon as Optimus Prime shows up on the scene, Megatron does too. And should one of the more massive Autobots make an appearance, well, expect something big from the Decepticons to match up.
This doesn't look like a cheap cash-in on a movie franchise. This trailer shows there are definitely some fans working on the project. Along with the trailer, we'll have details of the game straight from developer High Moon Studios.
The good folks at Gameinformer give us an interesting look at the development of Activision's War For Cybertron Optimus Prime. Check out the article below..
The developers behind Transformers: War For Cybertron have an interesting task when it comes to their game's creation. Fans of the cartoon have a very specific view of how the robots in disguise look, but various iterations throughout the years have tweaked their image substantially. Many were irked by the Micheal Bay-ified insect-like versions of the Autobots and Decepticons in the recent live action films, as they strayed too far from the G1 originals. High Moon Studios is approaching this task by putting a modern polish on a look that still brings back memories of the cartoon that launched the series into pop culture history.
Take a look below at Senior Concept Artist Billy King as he details the most iconic of the Transformers - Optimus Prime.
GameInformer has updated their Transformers War For Cybertron Hub with one of the most popular characters in the Transformers Universe - Starscream. The seeker has been known to be treacherous, egotistical and always looking out for himself. Will Activisions' War For Cybertron continue this trend? Check out the sketches and information below!
We've already given you the lowdown on the esteemed leaders of the Autobots and Decepticons, Optimus Prime and Megatron, but for our final Transformers: War For Cybertron character profile, we wanted to take a look at a true fan favorite. Enter Megatron's ever-scheming second-in-command, Starscream. You can see his powerful jet form above and his newly-designed robot form below.
Cartoon watchers who were introduced to Starscream in the '80s were immediately drawn to his sneaky, deceitful nature. Despite being arguably the highest-ranking member of the Decepticons besides Megatron, Starscream is deadset on taking the top spot, and he makes no efforts to hide it. But the original cartoon never really attempted to explain why Starscream was on such a power trip nor why Megatron kept him around despite that. War For Cybertron's prequel story lends itself perfectly to fleshing out these motivations.
The first mission of the Decepticon campaign will chronicle the first meeting between Megatron and Starscream aboard a space station that orbits Cybertron. This dramatic encounter will culminate in one of the Decepticons defecting only to be replaced by an eager Starscream. Despite teaming up with the Decepticons, Starscream will make it clear that in his mind both Megatron and Optimus Prime are failing to keep the best interests of all of Cybertron in their minds.
As one of the handful of Transformers that can change into a jet, Starscream will also have the special Hover ability while in robot form. His other special ability, Shockwave, sounds like it will be perfect for handling large groups of enemies.
