I got a feeling everyone's going to want to be running around in that [Optimus] skin in a few months.

I'm torn between my love of Op and my absolute abhorrence of gamestop.

I'm not one for preordering stuff; the only thing I've preordered as of yet is Halo: COmbat Evolved Anniversary. I agree that GameStop can be a little on the expensive side, but when it comes to preorder bonuses, it does not disappoint! :grin:

Considering how crappy the FOC Prime looks it's really a no brainer.

How much you guys wanna bet that Hasbro's going to do a repaint of the upcoming Bruticus toy into the G2 colors of the game preorder bonus? :-?

That's what made me go for G1 Optimus. Amazon's gotta do more than a single-player bonus.

It'll most likely be released as dlc a few months, or even weeks later. Just like WFC Shockwave, jazz, and demolisher.

Thats what I'm hoping for. Also, I want a purple megatron tank, like the G2 hero mold. Just for the sheer awesomeness.

All I hear while looking at prime's pics is "The Touch" song from the G1 movie.

Hmmm, g1 prime is cool and all, but I was kinda hoping for something more...current. Like Prime Prime or WFC Prime or something I don't know. The asthetic works, but its not novel enough. I'll get it though if best buy doesn't offer something better.

i'm not sure you quite understand what the word "novel" means.. but having WFC prime in this game wouldn't be it.

having TF prime Oprimus in the game would be neat. or hell.. it'd be awesome if we could maybe like 6 primes throughout tranformers history, sort of what they did with batman, for that games dlc pack (i think) G1.. trans metal beast wars.. beast machines.. cybertron.. animated.. tf prime.. now that would be awesome.

Beast wars Primal would be kinda funny to see actually

Beast Wars trans metal 2 Optimus would be epic to play as. But so would trans metal 2 Megatron...

So when people like every FoC design except for the bulky Optimus Design, what does High Moon do? Give people the option to play as the original (and considered by many to be the greatest) Optimus. Not bad High Moon, not bad.

Fortunately, I like the "Fist with Wheels" design of FoC Optimus. But I want, no, NEED, that Megatron gun.

I'd buy anything Transformers High Moon dishes out.
I hope they also make a Collector's Edition, just so I can spend more money on it :)

Transformers has such a rich universe of characters and stories, they could go on and make half a dozen more.

Wait, I just realized that the Shockwave Cannon is rendered backwards in the picture! The barrel is facing away from us! That spherical joint-looking shape is where the gun attaches to an elbow, and the part facing us is where the tube that leads to Shockwave's back starts.

Yes! Very nice.

Why cant we have a G1 game?

G1 based game with up to 4 player online co-op during the MAIN MISSION is what I want.

G1 Optimus is looking quite good actually. That one would be cool to have. The G2 Bruticus is rocking it well too, but this knocks the validity of anyone hoping to use the general release Combaticon figures as their G2 selves. That set is getting worse and worse.

Damn, why Gamestop got always the good stuff... :-x I just hope that they make it the same way like WFC that you can get those exclusive later on Xbox live. :-?

What I mean by novel is that I've seen a G1 prime skin already in two of the current gen games, and I kinda want something a bit different. The WFC prime design was just cool though, and while I don't mind the current fist with wheels the original suits me better.
