    I don't understand why High moon took a chatacter from the first game out.
    Especially from multiplayer. I personally liked his transformation and vehicle mode so no doubt would have used it.

    I'm aware if asked they will probably say he was taken out due to 'balancing issues'. He's still mentioned in game on those loading screens so why take him out ?

    What does it say about him on the load screens?

    I bet he's in the game, wish I had it on PC so I could go poke about the files. Mark my words, he'll probably be a bonus with the first map pack.

    We're talking more about multiplayer, the fembots were taken out because they wouldn't work with the create-a-character feature. Sideswipe and Breakdown's chassis are in the game, Thundercracker and Skywarp are too technically since they look exactly the same as Starscream, the only one that's truly missing in one form or another is Barricade.

    Sideswipe is actually fairly prominent in the story. Moreso than war anyways.

    It says he earned his name by smashing through roadblocks.

    That's really odd, you'd thinkt they would have him in the actual campaign then, no reason to talk about him if he's only in multiplayer, and he isn't even...

    Sounds like he was going to be in campaign but was cut so the odds are, his chassis is in the game somewhere, in the code I mean.

    Nope, they already released the first map pack. No barricade. I am a little confused why they didn't add him, especially to multiplayer. But i guess we'll have to live with it. At least we're getting Dinobots, Insecticons and few others. It'll keep me occupied for a bit until they release sinlge player DLC.

    No, no, I mean map pack.

    We got the first character DLC but we've yet to get any maps, in WFC they spruced up the map packs with characters, odds are he'll be included with one of those DLCs.

    Oh, my apologies. I assume he might. But we'll just have to wait and see.

    I never really understood why he was in the first game anyway. Only reason I see is they wanted to use a character from the movie. Don't get me wrong he was fine, but they could have used any Stunticons instead of him in WFC. I mean, he's nothing special as far as G1 go, he's a Micromaster, one of the lame gimmick near the end of the toyline...

    I dont understand it either but he does share heads with dragstrip (there the same head) but maybe he will be bundled in a map pack DLC?

    It's implied that the form he had before he became a Micromaster(if he ever does in the WFC universe) was a G1 version of movie Barricade.
