A comical War For Cybertron Preview Video has been created by GameStop. It features the Decepticons with their exclusive pre-order character Shockwave taking charge. We get to see Soundwave turn into a boombox, with the classic 'The Touch' by Stan Bush in the surround. Check out the video embed below or on Youtube.

"Decepticon second-in-command"? Um... well, I guess this wouldn't be the first time Starscream was present but not the second-in-command.

I'm also still curious as to who's doing the voices of these guys, seeing as how every VA in this game (other than Peter Cullen) is someone new who's never done a voice in Transformers.

Still, awesome commercial.

Awesome! Love it. Traded in that crapfest FF XIII to Gamestop for their pre-order. I'm an Autobot guy, but Shockwave is a badass. Can't wait 3 more weeks.

I was gonna cancel my GS preorder to get Best Buy's Jazz, but... :lol:

Also, in regards to Cullen being the only returning Transformers voice actor on WFC...I dunno, that sounded a lot like Corey Burton's Shockwave to me... :-?

Probably because it's a cheesy, overused, Autobot anthem.

It would've been awesome to hear Instruments of Destruction instead...IMO it's more appropriate since it's the Decepticon equivalent of The Touch.

I thought the same thing. That's either Corey Burton of a damned good impersonator.

I also believe that it's Mr. Burton. Also, Starscream's voice sounds a lot like Sam Riegal, the voice of Donatello in the 2003 TMNT series. If so, he's an interesting choice.
