If Lockdown's on the cover instead of Galvatron, would this imply Lockdown being the movie's main big-bad if Galvatron really is just a manmade robot?

I thought WayForward was developing while Activision was publishing.

I'm guessing it's true. I don't think that Galvatron is not an important character in the movie since he's being controlled by humans (and he doesn't look evil at all). Either Galvatron will get a mind of his own or 5 and 6 will have different villains. Right now, Lockdown <I>is</I> getting the most attention. :CON:

I'm thinking Galvatron won't gain control over his body until the end of AOE. And for the majority of the movie, Lockdown will be the main villain, saving Galvatron for TF5.

In videogame news, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark gets a teaser trailer thanks to games website Game Trailers - and it's a Bumblebee-centric trailer at that, showing off the character in its variety of incarnations from Cybertron and Earth. Check out the video below!

Stealth modes? Again? They're using the same design as in DOTM. I thought that all the characters were redesigned with different vehicle modes. The concept Camaro looks a lot different than the 2010 Camaro, so their stealth modes should not look the same. Hasbro knows that the movie games aren't that good, so by putting WFC and FOC into the picture is supposed to make it better? Something tells me that this game is going to suck. :-(

yeah.. that's definitely the new camaro.

also.. it just doesn't make sense to me that their designs would be so much different.. if the fall of cybertron characters came to earth, i'd think they'd look more G1 like rather than obtaining more complicated designs..

i REALLY hope this doesn't ruin the chance of getting a follow up to FOC where they crash on earth or something.

i mean.. they could do the next one with them crashing to earth and what not.. then the last game could follow the '86 movie story line and you'd have to destroy unicron at the end.

Why would you want them to skip the thousands of years of space exploration that take place after the ending of FOC but before the TFs' arrival on Earth?

I know that the vehicle modes aren't the same. Like I said before the concept Camaro looks a lot different than the 2010 Camaro. I just don't understand why Bumblebee's stealth mode looks similar to the DOTM Bumblebee. If Transformers: Age of Extinction is supposed to be fresh and new, why not new stealth modes?

It seems to me like they're trying to do this cheaply in time for the movie. Of course they're going to try to design as little as they have to and reuse as many assets as possible in order to put out this product. I just hope that they don't change the mechanics between this and foc. God forbid we have to deal with a cover system :SICK:

Thats what I dont get. Why are the films using random characters that were made up last year. Lockdown? Really? From TF Animated?
Why dont they use from the bible of iconic characters that have been written in stone and time already.
Theres a whole slew of G1 comics and cartoon characters to use and that must be used first.
Thats what irks me about when ever we get a new Superman or Batman movie they all pretty much stick to the main-roster of characters and they pretty much stay within their iconic looks and appearances. When we get a TF movie we get a mix mash of new made up characters while the while other main characters hold little to no resemblance of their iconic look.
Sorry if this is off topic but Im sorry when I think of the next Transformers movie I dont think of the Lockdown character.

Good question. Who knows.
My feeling is that maybe they wanted to go a different route in terms of mechanics.
WFC mechanics were very tight and clean but then of course there were the infamous glitches that took place and I think High Moon decided to switch up their style of mechanics. So then we got to FOC and the mechanics were very loose and all over the place. At least the Destroyer role was and the Dinobot forms were very slippery.
Not to mention their MP menus and matchmaking system were not the best. You spend half your time starring at loading screens and not knowing if anyone is actually online playing or not. Then you get put into a empty lobby that you never asked to be in or a match thats nearly over and then everyone quits and leaves.
Story aside though (stories have been spectacular), there just hasn't been a decent consistency with the gameplay mechanics and functions and with the glitch debacle maybe Hasbro decided to try to go with manufacturer.
But just my theory.

This has nothing to do with Sabrblade's question. :???:

Lockdown is one of them.

I don't like how Age of Extinction Bumblebee got more of a spotlight than War for Cybertron/Fall of Cybertron Bumblebee. Maybe I'm just bitter from all the waves of Bumblebees from the live-action toy lines, I dunno.
