    I was thinking about the roster and realized we haven't seen many autobot tanks. I mean warpath can't be the ONLY Tank/Soldier for the autobots! (i thought ironhide would be considered a soldier but he is fact a leader)


    Since i doubt we'll be playing as Omega Supreme i think we will see at least one of the following as a playable autobot.

    Grimlock
    Hardhead (personally hoping for him)
    Roadbuster
    Bigshot, Sidetrack, or Flak(We've already seen 1 micromaster upgrade)
    Cybertron Scattorshot (we've seen a displaced character already but i assume he'd be called armorhide or something else as to not conflict with the technobot leader)

    thoughts?

    I don’t think the classes and chassis situation shown in multiplayer videos and demonstrations apply to the actual story itself. As pointed out earlier, Ratchet (who is leader class material) is in fact a scientist in the story mode, we see him transform his arm into an Energon Repair Ray in the announcement trailer. Iron Hide, who also falls into the leader category looked more like a soldier in the story-based gameplay trailer; he was taking hits and ripping Decepticons to pieces.

    The fixed chassis and classes have to be a multiplayer only thing.

    They should make Ultra Magnus a tank.

    Well, there is that mystery Autobot that has similar colors to ultra Magnus, though his head and body are very different. He looks like a tank-type character.

    i was assuming king was talking about multiplayer. :) 
    speaking of campaign mode characters. airraids abilities are soldier's whirlwind and scout's cloak. has a scientist's shotgun, and scouts energon battle pistol. so ya they're pretty mixed in campaign

    as for tanks..(goes to pull out his profile comic)
    powermaster doubledealer
    sparkabot guzzle (must have)
    headmaster hardhead
    6changer quickswitch
    roadbuster
    technobot nosecone
    twin twist
    warpath

    micromasters:
    big shot
    flack
    sidetrack

    I've read Grimlock will be in the DS version of the game and that he is a tank, but that's about it.

    i was talking about MP, we need autobot tank chasis, and i was thinking about what single player characters we might get because of it.

    shadows
    i figured quickswitch would be way to obscure... i mean was he ever in anything except toy form? good call on guzzle and nosecone, but i dont want twin twist without topsin!

    As for ultra magnus, on first glace i thought that blue mystery autobot might be him but im not sure, i also think that could be cybertron scattorshot.

    Yes, but it doesn't change the fact they use single-player models, so there must be at least two autobot tanks other than warpath, because there's no reason to give the soldier class less chassis than the others (which each have at least three known chassis on the autobot side, we've seen Jazz, Sideswipe, Bumblebee chassis used for scouts, Ratchet, Ironhide and Optimus chassis for leaders and Silverbolt, Air Raid and Jetfire chassis for scientists, and Arcee's probably a scout too).

    In fact we've seen pretty good candidates. In the gallery for the High Moon Studios visit you can see concept art for a partly white autobot tank, and there's that screenshot of another heavy-looking autobot who some think is Grimlock.

    the one everybody thinks is grimlock i think is a generic autobot drone. my reasoning is, if grimlock was in the decepticon campaign, he would be a boss and why would highmoon reveal a high profile boss so early (February)

    They "why would they reveal a boss so early" reasoning doesn't hold very well against the fact they've revealed both Omega Supreme and Trypticon in the first two trailers. And that decepticon drill thing that serves as the first boss was seen in one of the very first screenshots. Plus the giant mecha-spider in the gameplay reveal trailer, and the Zeta Prime hologram machine.

    Not to mention pretty much any non-drone character on one side is certainly gonna end up being a boss for the other side's campaign.

    i'm intrested to see who the other autobot tanks will be, as like some have said i guess there will be 3 different chassis for each type of vehicle so we are missing for the autobots 1 car (probably arcee) 2 tanks, and for the decepticons 1 car 1 tank 2 trucks and 2 jets i say 2 jets cause i think that starscream and co will be considered the same chassis and we have seen the possible slipstream and there is that unknown jet from one of the trailers.

    Grimlock needs to be in 360/PS3 versions, I am reallllly hoping for it.. In the achievement lists there is one called like Grimlock Smash or something similar. With a pic next to it of a bot.

    Remember we also have a Spike achievement, and we know he's not in the game.
