    That's great. I wish they'd do something useful with their site; like post accurate news.

    The Battle Bios are a weird mix of WFC and movieverse.

    Axor and is enormous! He's 35 feet tall and has six 10s and two 9s for his tech specs! He's the new Decepticon leader! He must be a car the size of a bus! Terradive is the same. I think they just stole Megatron's stats.

    On the opposite side of things Mindwipe is 22 foot tall F-117 Nighthawk? A jet which is about 65 feet long.

    Terradive is 35 feet tall, and according to the Battle Bio he turns into ROTF Megatron's movie tank form!

    Optimus, Megatron, Soundwave and others now have their outlines from their WFC toys, but their pictures are still ROTF toys.

    Wow. So the guy(or girl) that wrote that hasn't actually played the game. Got some key details off, particularly the stuff about Megatron.

    (left out info to prevent spoiling. It's a fun game and I enjoyed the story. Even the credits are enjoyable.)

    This!

    Remember the reveal of classics 2.0 Prowl, Sunstreaker & Tankor etc, all as grey resins with comments from the designers. That's what they should be doing, hell I'd settle for what they were doing during Energon when we saw several figures for the first time on their website.

    The Battle Bios all have "In Action" buttons, but have footage of the Metroid Prime 3 website being used.

    Quite like the timeline, doesn't quite fit with the game as it says Optimus became Prime before the game.

    Shame Prime revolves more around the movie universe than WFC tbh, would be more excited about it without links to Bayformers.

    I'm not normally one to complain about this, but it's mind numbingly stupid how they use the story for WFC from the book, but the game is different, in some really key areas.

    You would think how they said WFC is a starting point for the next generation of TF's and was supposed to be a cohesive starting point, and already they have some glaring contradictions between the game and what's on the official website.

    Are the folks at Hasbro that fucking stupid, or is it just they don't care?

    I figure after 20 something years of TF stories, they might try to all get on the same fucking page about something.

    I really want an image of that WFC Prime Vs Megatron pic from the Battle Bios to save onto my computer. Why so tiny? Here's hoping Wallpapers gets a section soon.

    I like the look well enough. Not too crazy but noticeably different.

    I noted that too. I can't remember whether that bio was there during the site's ROTF days. This might be to sell Human Alliance Jazz, but if Jazz is in the 3rd movie... I'd love it. :)

    I wish they would put the entrance videos for the Hall of Famers shown at Botcon up online!
