    The Bot Shots online game is up and running over at Hasbro's TF site. It's interesting.

    Nice animations. Different "finishing moves" when you win with different powers. Interesting to see Bot Shot story.


    -ZacWilliam, no multiplayer till May though.

    Theres a very cool Image of Cybertron to choose your arena.
    Locations you will be able to play at when the game launches in full in MAY:

    Six Lasers Over Cybertron (SERIOUSLY! huge smile here!)
    Crystal City (A floating City here)
    Sonic Canyons
    Space Bridge
    Sea of Rust
    Hydrax Plateu
    Kaon
    Chamber of Battle

    -ZacWilliam, two arenas for each alt-mode type. They definately have some nice graphics put into this...

    My little nephews will love this. It seems like it's still in beta though. Should be pretty nice when its fully ready in May.

    Yeah. Only the very basics are playable right now. Pretty Beta. You can make an Avatar. You can do the first battle of Story Mode only. But you can play the single player non-Story mode as much as you want.

    I fought Starscream, Bumblebee, Prowl, Optimus Prime, Sentenel Prime, Barricade, and Alt colors Megatron (I was the Black Meg's). Got my guy up to level 3. But it looks like you won't get points to spend or a use for the Energon Cubes you earn till the full version.

    -ZacWilliam, It looks like it'll be a fun time-sink when it goes full on. And it looks like they're planning to pack some kinda power up codes with the figures.

    So, reading their info page:

    Sometime before May the Bot Shots toys will all start to come with a slip of paper with a 14 digit number on it that will be redeamable for Energon Cubes that you can use to buy things with at the "Bot Shop" in the game. I don't believe the figures have these in them yet(?)

    The rare chase Super Bots will have a code good for larger amounts of Energon AND that opens an exclusive "Super Bot Arena" location. If you can win a fight there you unlock Super Bots to recruit into your stable of characters.


    -ZacWilliam, playing the game has actually increased my desire to snag one of the actual toys. I was planing to wait for Skyfire buy now I kinda want two to play with with my son.

    The toys definitely don't have any codes in them yet. May is still plenty far away though.

    You know what, combine this botshot stuff with Spyro's Skylander tech/gameplay and you have a winner.

    Hell. Yes.

    This game is pretty fun and I'd love a game that plays like that with these guys.

    It's also nice to see Acid Storm getting some more fiction, he's the leader of a gang now. YAY!

    I'm Nemesis Zarak 1996 if anyone wants to play against me whenever multiplayer comes around.

    Do opponents drop a clipped version of the universal greeting when they murder you?

    I could have sworn I heard the last bit of it when Optimus beat my Starscream.

    Yeah, it sounds like they say a shortened "weep ninnie bong" sound at the end sometimes. I noticed that too.
