    As you may know Collectors Editions or Special Editions are very common these days and I can bet that WfC will have a collectors Edition with it but what would you really want from it? Exclusive Toy? Comic? Multiplayer Skins?

    As the publisher is Activision we may even get multiple collectors Editions.

    What do you want?

    Want something like Uncharted 2's exclusive edition that only a special select few received. It won't happen, but it's still a wish of mine :D 

    Actually, I'd be happy with just an art book with every concept and final picture drawn in it. I'm spending way too much time looking at the videos trying to see drawings. High Moon studios has done some great work.

    I don't want the game to have anything the regular version doesn't have, as I think these things are unfair to those unable to participate in regional exclusive offerings. Art books, OSTs, vouchers to free content, figurines or whatever are cool with me, however.

    i don't see why people are going so crazy over special editions......all you get is like a magnet and maybe a poster and it cost another $30.....wait you get two missions also? then it turns out anybody can get those missions and then you bitch cause you wasted your money (anyone remember that Movie 1 game drama over the cybertron missions? yea....)

    in before people bitch about not having shockwave cause they waited to pre-order too late cause they wanted the collectors edition that won't come

    if there was going to be one we would have heard about it

    Something that actually requires you to have the "Collector's/Special Edition" to unlock, and not something like the red deco Ironhide in the ROTF game. Probably some physical stuff as well, like a figure or a comic.

    Special Editions arent revealed untill near the release so maybe next month one will be revealed

    And SE's have grown to more than just a magnet and poster over the years.. Since this is a new Transformers continuity or what ever I would think the SE would include a prequel or sequel comic and maybe an exclusive figure did you see what the MW2 Prestige edition was Night Vision goggles...

    and batman Arkham Asylum came with a crappy batarang.......whatever, if they make one, fine, but if it comes out too late and you don't get a shockwave, i don't want to see any bitching about not having him, for you made the choice to wait (and i know there will be epic bitching cause they will do shockwave like they did Sgt. Johnson that the only way to even get the code is pre-order, cause there isn't a universal code like there was for the gold optimus and megatron of the ROTF game)

    What I'd like:

    A WFC TPB
    A collector figure, perhaps Zeta Prime.
    An art book.
    Some extra game content.
    Some special edition collector's themes/wallpaper for your console/pc.
    A small planet Cybertron, perhaps for your key chain.
    A pair of Autobot and Decepticon wall plaques.
    The game.
    A nicely designed box for it all to come in.


    I'd be happy with that.

    let me start by bringing this up, the ONLY way we might even get a collectable figure if it was a metallic repaint of like the deluxe prime mold or something, they aren't going to release a brand new mold just for the game

    A Zeta Prime figure would be awesome.

    If we actually do get a collector's edition it would probably just be something along the lines of a making of DVD and/or an art book. Which I would be perfectly happy with.

    I could see their being a comic. Maybe if their was a super special edition like with a few games these days their could be a special repaint of the BB toy

    Some thought we’d never see War For Cybertron toys, and look what happened there.

    We don’t everything Hasbro’s done for this game, we only know what they’ve told us. Heck, High Moon Studios didn’t know Hasbro made figures until they told them. Who knows what sort of talks happened after Hasbro showed them their creations.

    It looks like the bitching has already begun.

    There have been games in which pre-order DLC was given to the general public for free/purchase, you know? Tekken 6: Cardboard samurai Yoshimitsu, Marvel’s Ultimate Alliance: Juggernaut; Soul Calibur: Darth Vader and Yoda and I’m sure there were many more after that and even more to come.

    Shockwave as an exclusive to only those in North America would be a pretty evil thing to do, and I don’t think that’s going to happen.

    Are you going to come to Japan? This American doesn’t reside in the States.

    Did people complain about the Heroes of Cyberton line? Are they complaining about the Transformers RPMs?
