    Well, that all depends on what all we can actually do. If all we can do is change colors, designs, faction symbols, limbs and faces, I won't be doing a whole lot--probably nothing at all--differnt body parts are a must. I would like to make Jazz, Brawn, Sideswipe, Sun Steaker, Mirage and many, many others, but I'll have to wait and see.

    i hope its alot more intuitive than that. i wanna be able to scale or add different parts or even be able to add different types of panels individually. or even if you cant scale the robot parts maybe make it so you can change the design of the vehicle, hit a 'transform to robot' button and depending on what parts or design your vehicle mode is thats what your bot will look like. there so many ways you can think of and i hope its alot better than just changing colors or limbs. think of the amount of customizing you can do with your sack person in littlebigplanet.

    I rather play with the established characters to be honest.

    I'd probably either just make up a cool looking character, or try and create more obscure ones. Like maybe Skybite.

    That is if it does end up being as intuitive as everyone hopes it'll be.

    That just depends on what you're able to do when it comes to creating your own characters, though I'm tempted to make a character based on my fan character, Wildfrost.

    ya this all depends how in depth the system is for creating characters.. hopefully itwill be slightly based on all charcters in the game.. mean being able to take parts and add and subtract... pic diff heads....alt mods... color scheme will be a big deal.

    i mean honestly if it works out and you have free customization id make Grimlock(butwith a vehicle instead of dino), Galvatron, Constructicons, Rodimus, Mirage, id love to see a team with a whole seeker squad... now that would be bad ass!!

    i mean we have the ablity to be quite creative now its up to the devlopers to give us the freedom!!

    Something like spore creature creator would be great, but i doubt it will be as complex.

    Actually Grimlock has apparently been confirmed to be in the game. I'd be willing to bet he'll be a cybertronian "Tank", too.

    Yeah, I think that may be asking for just a bit too much.

    I'm looking forward to the multiplayer create a character more than anything. I'm looking less forward to a new batch of players that quit the game when they are losing.

    I'm hoping we get a choice of customization so I can make some of my own characters.

    It'd be nice to be able to upload 3D files, maybe one of the popular low-poly formats for game engines. The upload system could test out the file for overall size (polys and textures) and approximate amount of CPU required to run through the various animations, and accept/reject based on the results.

    It'd be extra-nice if there wasn't an in-game limit to things like number of altmodes etc, so if you could figure out how to stuff three or four modes into the upload limits, you could have them.

    Things like speed and firepower (and combat ability) could be controlled by the game leveling system to prevent twinking, but I'm not sure how you'd code for differences where zero, one, or more than one mode had flight capabilities, for instance. (Unless the game deemed all characters able to fly; if it's an Autobot it gets a manifestable rocket pack or something. And even then, there's a difference between having a car altmode and a jet. Unless all the cars could also fly...)

    Maybe there could be a fixed points system like many RPGs; you can buy flight during character creation, but it costs a large chunk of points which could otherwise be spent on armor, or speed, or weaponry, or dodge feats, or stunt driving, or ninja swords.
