No, not really. If you go really far back into the origins of the transformer race you'll find that in most continuities they were created by the Quintassons to be sold as vehicles for smaller races which is why the majority of alt. modes come as vehicle forms.

Is it confirmed that all of the WFC charachters will be made into toys or is Optimus the only promised one so far? This looks to be an awesome toy line if we manage to get them all.

Man, Side's alt mode is sick! :D Only hope they put Sunny in too. Would be a crime without him since they are bros...

Thundercracker is the best looking seeker so far for me, love the paint job.
Sideswipe and Jetfire both look awesome - I just wish Jetfire had his battle helmet with gun ears, ah well can't have everything.

I'm super excited for this game too, and I don't even own a PS3 or Xbox360 yet. :sad:

Anyway, these designs look great!

Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron are 100% certain to be released as toys. I believe is also very likely as there's a product listing on BBTS, but there are no toy images of him yet.

if a dinosaur can have a cockpit I don't see why a jet can't. ;)

Swipe looks pretty darn good. I hope we get that chassis for multiplayer bots.

Man these Alt.Modes look sick this is like being in a candy store or a video game store for little kids a kid.

This is a G1 Fanboy's wet dream so to speak who have been wanting a game that tells the events before G1 now we will learn what happens before they crashed landed and how Optimus becomes the legend that he is today.


Man Jetfire Looks indentical almost to his old G1 self it is uncanny.

Sideswipe is sleek dig his look.


Thundercracker looks like G1 but his Alt doesnt but that makes sense cause this is Pre-G1 so I guess that is what they look like on Cybertron.

I am just curious how many of these guys will be playable in the single player campaign and which will just be in game cameo appearances or part of the games story line and cgi video's of the story in game cutscenes.

I am getting this game in August cause the game dosent come out until June 22nd I think because in July I am getting Persona 3 Portable for my PSP and also Dragon Quest IX on my Nintendo DS.


Also announced today is 2 new DBZ games do this fall Dragon Ball Ragin Blast 2 and a new one for the PSP with something to do about Tag Teams but you can still play the game normally if you want.

Looks like TF 3 is also coming along nicely but I hate Ratchet's new paint job but the Twins new look awesome I actually liked them in Revenge.

Now if we can only learn more on Prime which I think we will at Botcon everything will be Prime.

I'm glad they kept Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker the same mold. Very cool. Jetfire looks good. Silverbolt, Air Raid, and Jetfire look closely related. I am so stoked that Sideswipe is in it. Cant wait for the Prowl reveal now =P~

Jetfire and Thundercracker look awesome, Sideswipe looks really really awesome. I hope this means we get Sunstreaker too.

I believe toys for Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron and Soundwave have been confirmed so far.

I don't. We don't know if Micromasters or Mini-cons are being built into this lore. If they are, that would explain cockpits.

Personally, I like the look of the cockpit over a flyer without one.

About the cockpit thing. This is something done over a broad medium that has been established for story telling so that we as humans can relate to things better.

It isn't done for a technical or even a plausible purpose, it just makes the general audience more apt at understanding them as vehicles.

The cockpits can also be there for smaller TFs to ride in. The characters in the G1 cartoon were using each other for transportation.
