    Leaving aside all the ones known about so far:


    Autobots:

    Ultra Magnus
    Inferno
    Grimlock
    Wheeljack
    Powermaster Prime (could be an in-game upgrade, plus a cybertronian version of him would be interesting)
    Sentinel Prime (tell me these wouldn't make for fantastic character models):

    http://images.wikia.com/transformers/images/d/dc/IDW_SentPrime_Apexarmor.jpg

    Ultra Magnus and Sentinel would be great for boss fights with their multiple forms, sizes and armaments.





    Decepticons:


    Shockwave
    Constructicons (for a big boss fight, you could battle the C-cons in their normal modes in the level leading up to the boss confrontation)
    Blackout (it'd be interesting to see him bulked out WFC style)
    Skywarp
    Thrust
    Sixshot
    Skorponok

    Astrotrain (I'd like to see him be really massive, no mass-shifting)

    Any of them. All of them. Seriously, I don't think I'd mind anyone showing up. Well-known to obscure, just gimme.

    Yes I know, I was meaning along the lines of the campaign mode. I'd love to fight Magnus as he uses his carrier mode to transport other Autobots which attack you, then you fight him in 'White Prime' mode and then lastly his power-armour form.:popcorn 


    edit: I'd like to see the Predacons as well, and Prowl.

    In Story mode, I wouldn’t any character that appeared in the cartoon/comic continuities before the Target/Head/Power masters gimmicks and those altered/made by Unicron. …Dinobots too, anything created on Earth, with the exception of the Combaticons, should NOT be in a game pre-dating the Transformers’ arrival on Earth.

    All of Transformer just showed up through out the story, very few if any ever got an origin story, so for all we know, they were off fighting some other war on a different planet, galaxy or on Cybertron. Surely, Cybertron’s population wasn’t limited to the ones we saw only on Earth.

    What I don’t want is a flood of characters. Though it sounds cool with variety and all, but a flood of characters will only bring the story down, which is what I DON’T want. I wouldn’t however mind additional characters present in online play, though a certain part of me still wouldn’t want to see those associated with many Transformers that followed the 1987 crowd.

    I hope we see many Transformers in the game—unplayable is fine. I just don’t wan the story to be limited to just the few we’ve seen in the reveal trailer. A war that divides Cybertron, its people, should focus on important figures—all of them—not a small few.

    Ok first off the Dino in the Marvel, DW and IDW run were already on Cybertron. This game isn't based strictly on the toon. Dinos can be given WWi type alt modes. So yes they can show up.

    Too late. The Aerialbots have been confirmed to be in the game's story mode.

    The Aerialbots, who in G1 were not built untill after the Autobots had been on Earth for sometime.

    The toys, which is where both continuities drew from are based on dinosaurs—an old argument’s coming back, isn’t it?

    Don’t know much about Marvel’s comics—they were pretty rare in my neck of the woods—but were the Dinobots dinosaurs in the Marvel’s interpretation of the story? No matter how you look at it, groups name derives from dinosaurs. Going by a different name or their individual names wouldn’t bother me, but Dinobots would. However, since they are dinosaurs, I still think they shouldn’t be in the game, but I can understand why others would want them.

    I don’t remember the cartoon all that much, but did they actually have an origin tale? I thought they just showed up like Predaking or Defensor.

    Grimlock. Mostly because I also want to see a toy of him in the WfC style, but also because it would be fun running around as him tearing things up with his sword. I don't care what he turns into (tank, Cybertronian monster, half tank/half dino, whatever...), as long as it's large, powerfull, and fits Grimlock's personality, I'll be a happy camper.

    In the Marvel Comics the Dinobots were a part of the Ark's crew. They were released several million years before the others by the Ark's computer when Shockwave emerged on prehistoric Earth and the Ark's computer gave them dinosaur alt modes straight from Marvel's very own 'Savage Land'. Following this, Dreamwave and IDW have interpreted them as a pre-earth team called "Dynobots".

    The Aerialbots (of whom we're getting Silverbolt and Air Raid) and the Stunticons (of which Breakdown has been confirmed) had an entire two parter episode devoted to their origin The Key to Vector Sigma, Part 1 and Part 2.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Kup's old pals from the Eight-Track - as well as the early Deceps they faced in Wings of Honor.


    If this story is based around the dawn of the Great War, I'd imagine that characters like Hot Rod might be saved for stories set later down the timeline - but a young Kup, and the likes of Magnus, could be interesting to see.
