    So I have looked at the thing you can customize on your multiplayer character, but there is one thing I have not seen.

    My question is, can you choose the model of a decepticon but be an autobot and vice-versa?

    Like could I play with the body of optimus but have a decepticon symbol on?

    Any answers?

    Nope, from what I know the chassis stay Autobot or Decepticon, and can't be changed from one to the other. It's one of the things I'm hoping they change if they go to make a sequel, along with some more advanced options for altering your own personal bot.

    So you make a black prime or whatnot and only beat the crap out of Autobots on multi and it should still be fun for you!
    While we're here asking stuff. How many customs can a player have on a game?

    I guess they could do something like that in a free-for-all Deathmatch.

    Well, you have to remember that in good multi-player team based games, having good friend or foe recognition is very important.

    Do you really want to get fragged while looking at a "Megatron" chassis trying to tell which team its on?

    Especially since player colors are customizable. Not every "Megatron" hover tank is going to be steel gray.

    Good! One of my favorite games is a car game that only had 5 slots very annoying to have to delete cars to have new faster cars.

    There is a mode where you can just walk around and slag folks, right?

    Also can we name them?

    The whole customization thing sounds cool, but some things make it difficult, like if someone wanted to make Bugbite, and finds that the BB mold can't be used as a 'Con. I guess if they let us mix up the molds like Hasbro does, it would get very confusing as to who is on which team.

    I hope the sequel or this does have switchable sides. Probably won't.

    Recognition is easy with a recticle color change for enemy and friendly.
    Besides the name if it displays while over a person, or the faction symbol, or any other numerous methods.

    My questions on mele changing.

    The trailers suggest the custom bots can weild any weapon. We see seeker jets with swords(a scout weapon), among other change ups. Sadly no shots of maces or axes with other classes though. So maybe Swords are the only universal by weight? The sword is also Jazz's, bb's, and sideswipe's weapon.

    this would have worked if the customizing was more in depth because youcould use say primes body with say demolishers head...

    it deff would be way to confusing im sure well get a huge selection of differnt bot chasiss
    people are thinking were only getting playable character chasiss and thats not the case!

    if the pre order character is only in escalation, then they cant be customized, other then shopping for new weapons in vending machines.
