    4 the life of me... i can't help the feeling that Shockwave & IronHide was originally part of the FOC campaign roster but through the testing & Hasbro's say... were axed for Vortex & Cliffjumper respectively.

    Reasons why?

    1. Vortex's special ability (Shockwave Blast)... huh?

    2. Shockwave having so much to do with the storyline (creating the Dinobots & Insecticons and all).

    3. The debut trailer of FOC feat. campaign playable characters only (U know the one, with IronHide knocking Starscream the fu*k out). Now why is it Hide is the only character in that trailer not playable in campaign?

    4. And we all know that Hasbro told HMS (at the last minute i suppose) to incorporate TF Prime into there game somehow... (which mean't Cliffjumper). I'd rather have Wheeljack 4 real!

    5. Lastly, the people responsible for TF Prime said they had no plans on incorporating IronHide in there show anytime soon or maybe ever?

    Now this is just my humble opinion... they picked the wrong bots!!! Vortex & Cliffjumper are no substitutes for Shockwave & IronHide (if this is indeed the case).

    Most of these reasons are downright stupid.

    I think it was just a coincidence that all the charectors in the trailer are playable (apart from ironhide of course)

    I'm inclined to agree with OP. I would have much preffered Shockwave to combine with the other combaticons.

    1. Shockwaves were an ability for Bumblebee in War For Cybertron.
    2. ...and?
    3. Coincidence.
    4. ...source? It takes more than a "last minute" change for something we've seen months and months back.
    5. That has nothing to do with it.

    Honestly, you're just grasping at straws. The game isn't even out, we don't know if Ironhide isn't playable. Hell, we haven't even seen much of Escalation in terms of character variety. Just sit tight.

    Hey woah, SarcasmScream, calm down. I think if Shockwave combined with the Combaticons, He could be a fucking awesome arm cannon.

    ON SECOND THOUGHT, LET'S MAKE FIVE SHOCKWAVES AND BUILD AN EVEN BIGGER SHOCKWAVE. WE'LL CALL HIM SHOCKBLAST

    Wait, dangit.

    Would his gun be the blaster or the jet mode booster? For some reason I think the booster would be better.

    Actually, Shockwave did combine with the Combaticons once in G1. Well, if you consider Bruticus forcibly using Shockwave as a gun to be combining.:p
