    i found this at EB games here in New Zealand we are getting
    playable g1 optimusprime
    swoop character unlock
    bruticus unlock character
    sling shock cannon
    trowback blaster
    plus a poster

    there is a good chance this effects Australia EB games as well

    So, what, they're replacing the Megatron gun with Prime's G1 gun?

    And why does NZ get ALL the preorders but everyone else gets one third?

    because we only have 1 majour gameing retailer meaning they dont have to split the exclusives between stores so EB games can just come along and take all of them in one sweep

    Megatron Gun IS the Throwblack Blaster.

    I wonder if G2 Bruticus will get added to the Australian preorders too? It seems weird that we get everythign except that. I think Swoop may be unlockable in game, probably as a jet skin, and this is just a way to get him earlier.

    This confirms it for me. G2 Bruticus and Swoop will be available to everyone, these are just early unlock codes.

    This.
    Though I am actually surprised they got everything all at once. Instead of saving some for a DLC bundle later on.

    Reaffirming my thought that all this shit will be DLC for everyone later.

    I think the only thing that'll be released for later is the "G1 Retro Pack" as it's been called. G2 Bruticus and Swoop will probably be unlocked by everyone by then.

    (We know High Moon has done it before; for the DOTM game, Ratchet was an Amazon "Exclusive" and all that was was an unlock early code for something everyone could get)

    I know this isn't the reason, but it almost seems like an apology for the fact that the game is releasing later (in some places).

    Because eventually it'll all be in a DLC pack, so ultimately it doesn't matter.. :p

    Last time EB games did this with Lego Batman 2 and the villain pack. But in America the villains pack was part of the Power up Rewards special. Bet that happens with Swoop.
