    I am 100% certain that Tieger's decision to use Grimlock was seconded by a co-worker who knows that getting Hasbro to make certain figures is like pulling teeth out of Grimlock's mouth.

    This co-worker hated classics Grimlock, so he figured out that the best way to get a Grimmy who fit in with the other classics, was to include him with a new design in the game. It's also a great way to get at least 2 other Dinobots out of the deal.

    I'm hoping that we can get a few insecticons too. I would be happy with just one army builder style trooper from the game also. Those ninja 3rd party Insecticons remind me of something from the 4th season of the G1 cartoon... Otherwise known as "the fall of G1".

    Does nobody else see Perceptor right there in the headliner picture of the article? Right next to Grimlock.

    There's one more next to Prime, but I can't identify it.

    No. I was just putting all the pieces together from all the interviews mixed with a little prediction... Like I did with the "100% certain generations Wheeljack is coming 2011" thread last year.

    For FOC I'm predicting a new deluxe Grimlock and definitely more FOC figures than the 5 we got for WFC. I'm Hoping we'll get some of the other dinos that will be in the game in toy form.

    Meh, I'd like to see how it works. It could be really interesting, and it would definitely reduce ability spamming leaders.

    Seriously, leader uses Warcry and Moleculon Bomb and you are dead unless you either counter it by being a leader and using the same abilities, try to possibly down him as a Soldier with the EMP shotgun, or run away as the Scout or Scientist.

    Still, I am gunna miss my epic ninja scout. It really felt like you were a ninja with cloaking and the evasiveness of boosting.

    I saw that too, and kept wonder if it was Perceptor, the colors look wrong, but the design looks like right. Could it be Red Alert?

    If they do a War for Cybertron 3, They should get Sefton Hill to be as Co Director.

    Freakin Perceptor. :D  I can't stand this wait. I have to play this game.

    I do understand where he is coming from with the abilities. For the most part, I noticed that the abilities for me were something that I wouldn't use as much in the campaign as I would in the Multiplayer. And even then, I personally only stuck to what would work for me for my MP Characters. So bring them down to only one isn't so bad as long as it is fun to use.

    I still think that Grimlock is rather rubbish looking - as it's to like Energon Grimlock the shape of the head is completely wrong it's neither like an actual T-Rex or like Grimlock - heck it's not even like Godzilla so it fails in all ways heck other than looking like Energon Megatron if anything it's more like Snapdragon than Grimlock. It's also fat looking.

    So far the character designs are substantially less good than the 1st game and nearly as averageware as Warwithin in terms of uninspired cybertronian modes.

    Besides what's the point of changing some of them - just focus on the chracters who didn't get made last time as CGI and use them instead.

    Someone like Springer for example.

    If FOC is supposed to immediately follow WFC, and the series is supposed to relate to Transformers Prime, then the story might actually be the story of Exiles, or at least have some connections to it. Perhaps the radical changes in story structure and gameplay they are talking about refers to connecting it to Prime.
