    Now before anyone rips this idea apart please take into consideration that I know little to nothing about building video games. With that said I love the character creation on the FOC demo, but I wouldh've liked to have seen all head available for all classes. If they were too small or too big for the body of the another class oh well, I should be able to make a silly looking TF if I want to, right? On the same subject I also wish the "helmets" ( if that's what you want to call them could interchange between heads.

    Once again I know basicly nothing about making a video game so for info on wether or not this wouldh've even been feasable to do I'd refer to someone like Ryoku.

    The heads are probably teasers and set to sneak a peek at what classes the DLC sets will be in.

    EDIT: Whoops, thought you meant dino heads only.

    I guess High Moon could have made all he heads available to every class, but I can think of three reasons why they didn't.
    1. Some heads on some bodies would look rediculous. This could be good for some, but others would hate it.
    2. It would mess up balance if a Titan had a Infiltrator head, because it would be harder to get a headshot while sniping. It's part of the balance that the Titan has lots of health, but it's a big target.
    3. HMS wanted each class to feel unique.

    Then simply change the size of the head model to fit the body. That would work, wouldn't it?

    It seems to me that most of the heads are roughly the same size anyway, so I don't really think that it would mess up the balance. Also I wouldn't think that it would take that much for each head to resize it's self according to what body it was placed on, but as I said earlier I know very little about what goes into making a video game. And I already addressed the "Some heads on some bodies would look rediculous." in my original post.

    The heads would be resized to fit the different bodies, as evidenced by the heads of Bruticus and Metroplex not being stupidly huge.

    I hope there's a big head cheat just for that.

    Why stop at the heads if all parts save for the chest are only cosmetic changes anyway?

    I think it's stupid to lock parts to classes, as you are limited to what you can actually create. I'm not a fan of the fixed Autobot/Decepticon colors either or the fixed colors in general for that matter--they are, for he most part, ugly combinations.

    What if you put Megatron's legs on an Infiltrator or Scientist?

    It'd be cool to have all the heads for every class. I'd make Bumbletron :D

    What's the problem? Why can't you? Why can't you put Starscream's wings on an Infiltrator? It's already been pointed out that heads have been resized to fit characters, so why couldn't legs or other parts?

    I've been saying this since I got the demo, they could just scale down the bigger heads for the smaller bots. I really wanted Swindle's head on my scientist, I love those old school human faces. His is just bad ass, hope we get more blocky G1 style heads in the G1 dlc or something.

    Why not indeed?
    A good question, but a better one is: why do Cybertronian's have "robo-boobs" anyway? All Cybertronians get their nutrients from harvested Energon.

    I still don't see the problem. We're talking about the create your own character portion of the game. If you want to make the ugliest thing out there with the parts in the game, you should be able to do that.

    HMS talks about gamers being able to do whatever they want in this mode, yet you can't. It's heavily restricted.

    To be honest the only parts that should be cross-classed are the heads in my opinion I don't want to get rid of the exclusvie looks of class's.
