those legs do not look good on the rest of that prime.

I would buy that Megatron figure in an instant. Why can't we getting this as a Generations voyager?? :-(

Seriously... it combines the best elements of Animated, WFC, and Prime. I love it.

Definitely liking how these work as pre-TF: Prime designs for Optimus, Megs. and Bee.

to bad megatron didnt look like that in prime & the movies, the head needs work but the rest looks great. Prime looks good too except for the legs, take movie primes legs & the torso from this prime & thats pure win.

Overall I don't like them. I'm not a fan of the super lean designs. Prime looks way too top heavy. Megs, on the other hand, looks good. Don't care for the head but the body looks great. Better than prime megs

Megatron's head is a bit too generic for my tastes.

It's like Prime, Animated, and Bayverse all came together and made a baby... A surprisingly good looking baby. I'm actually digging their take on Bumblebee, looks are better than his Prime counterpart even if it's just a few cosmetic changes.

LOL thats what i thought at first seeing him



Although i feel he should have more guns on him or just a tripled barreled minigun and maybe add a bullet cigar.





Yeah i like Hound except for the fat part but i can forgive that because he is a bad ass character.





Edit: Also reminds me of Master Chief especially with the orange visor thing above his eyes.

that terrorcon combiner somewhat reminds me of a mutated bruticus due to the fact he has a rotor blades on one hand and has missile launchers on his back.

I'm pretty sure that's Brawl, when I saw him in-game I remember thinking "why is his head red?"

Metro Prime wrote:Dreadwing, is that you?


No. That's Switchblade... I think, Switchblade's head is the only part of him you see in-game.

I know most people are saying they're getting a Dreadwing vibe from Switchblade, but am I the only one who is getting a Deathsaurus vibe from him? Only thing truly missing is a grand ol' beak protruding from his head.

Honestly, I was thinking the same thing. Or, at the very least, that Switchblade is the love child of Prime Dreadwing and G1 Deathsaurus (or BH Darksteel).

First people said Dreadwing looked like Depth Charge, and now they say Switchblade looks like Dreadwing.

Blue and gold bots just can't catch a break.

Via the website gamesindustry.biz, we have some unfortunate news hailiing from Jagex, the company behind the Transformer: Universe MOBA online game. It appears that the company is in talks regarding having to let go a number of its employees, as a result of a company-wide downsizing. This follows the news of the current CEO Gerhard leaving by the end of this year, too. Read some more below, and the full piece here.

UK studio Jagex has confirmed that it is currently in a consultation process with the staff assigned to its Transformers Universe project. Some will find new roles on other Jagex games, others face redundancy.

"It is with regret that we can confirm some members of the Transformers Universe team will now be facing the possibility of redundancy. The proposed downsizing comes as the product reaches a new stage of development in its life cycle with a view to refining specific areas of gameplay for a live environment," the company told GamesIndustry.biz in a statement.

"Proposing to lay off staff is not something reached without due care and consideration and comes, in this instance, only at the end of a long period of deliberation. We remain grateful to all members of staff who will be affected by this process, and would like to thank them for all of their work on the game."

Big f'ing surprise: company makes years-worth of bad decisions on game design and marketing, delays release of falgship game, people lose jobs. A simple cause and effect. See ya Jagex!

Video game companies have been hit hard lately, what with High Moon, Lucasarts, and now Jagex, among others. Never good news to hear about layoffs, in any industry.

On a more TF related point, will this have a negative effect on TFU?

Typical corporate behavior these days. They work employees to the bone to finish a massive project with the promise of job security and wealth if they do a good job. Then as soon as the project is done, they fire everybody and funnel all the profits into their own pockets.

I was concerned about these guys from the moment I saw the number of delays they were having at various stages of game development. As mentioned by someone else here, its also not unusual (even though its unethical) for companies to hire on people and let them go as the project draws near completion.
