I like, I like. Hopefully the story is heavily based on WWI. I'd be all for that. So far, the characters we've seen look good.

(Puts on a pair of Depends)

I think I wet myself.

That's just flipping AWESOME. I love the new takes on the old G1 characters. Absolutely fantastic.

By the name and the designs this is looking to be a 'pre-earth' setting. Which looks pretty awesome.
Maybe having a bit more creative openness on the programmers' end will get rid of the crappy plots the previous TF games have had too.

*cleans up afer his nerdgasm* This looks like it's going to be sweet. I hope they have an online feature. Pleeeeeease pleaseplease let them have an online feature. And being able to "make your own transformer" would be nice too. I could see it easily being handled like they did for the DS games for the first transformers movie.

Hmm, looks interesting, but I hope it has nothing to do with the next toyline, I don't really like that look. Unless they reformat later in the game, of course.

Finally, the Transformers game I've always wanted, and it better be good! The Robot designs are pretty good, like a cross between War Within and movie style. Hmmm, online play on Cybertron, now that would be EPIC! :grin:

I like these new designs, specially Optimus and Soundwave. Don't think I actually want figures of them but I do like the look.

Hopefully Don's taking notice of these awesome designs.

These designs are awesome. IDW's Transformers Ongoing's designs? Not so much.

Yes. I totally agree. When I saw that sweet pic of Megs on the home page, I got more excited than I have in recent memory.

Anyone else see the Unicron-like thing behind Prime? And if this is not on the Wii, I damn well better be getting Xbox 360 for Christmas.

I'm gonna be cautiously optimistic here. While the game LOOKS jaw droppingly cool(can't wait to get my next Game Informer to read the article), I'll have to see it in action via the mentioned trailer before I get too excited. Remember, the Movie based games LOOK great, but they don't play as well as they look. I'm hoping here for game to be a bit more along the lines of TF: Armada than the Movie games.
