    That's pretty cool, but I'll be good with my Shockwave from Gamestop!

    I can't lie, I hate these prerorder exclusive, because they force you to pick one. Why not have the characters available as DLC instead, so you can get one exclusive, and buy the rest? I hated that about Mass Effect 2.

    Well, that's majorly unexpected. Demolishor himself looks pretty freaking sweet. Hopefully there will be a way to get both of these exclusives without having to choose only one.

    It's a code, so to me that insinuates they'll likely all be unlockable via gameplay means (or codes being posted on Gamefaqs within hours of launch).

    You guys see his trailer I posted from Amazon? I'm happy with Shockwave myself.

    The last Amazon preorder bonus (Red Ironhide in the RotF game) was unlockable in the game anyway, so who knows.

    Could be codes like the ones given away with Halo ODST that unlocked Johnson. They just acted like a single use pre-paid card, and each code was unique.
    Not like the Gold Prime + Megatron codes that were more cheat codes than anything else.

    Wonder if either of these will be available in the UK, liking Demolishor a lot more than Shockwave.

    It also appears from the trailer that you can use Demolishor in the campaign, as opposed to being tied to a single online game mode like Shockwave.

    I bet people are gonna be screaming for Hot Shot next, lol. I wonder if Wal-mart will have any exclusive? Oh and before anyone says anything at the end of the trailer it clearly says only for 360 and PS3 for the code, no Wii.

    That's not surprising. Considering the treatment of the PC community and Transformers Games.

    This is actually a nice treat though. I do hope that he is unlockable though, I'm only getting the one copy and Shockwave takes priority over Demolishor.

    I pre-order'd at gamestop for Shockwave. Hopefully they're released at a later date to the public as DLC. Demolishor looks amazing and I'd pay for his character unlock; provided he's not a model swap of another character.

    I have mine ordered with Gamestop, and I prefer Shockwave, but Armada Demolishor is nice too.
    So this means the character rooster is not limited to G1 characters. This opens a lot of possibilities.

    Interesting, maybe Demolisher's inclusion in WfC is to make up for the fact he's the only one of the four initial Decepticons didn't appear at all in the Armada game? (Those four being Demolisher, Cyclonus, Starscream, and of course Megatron, and instead of fighting Demolisher you fight Starscream again).

    Either way, I've only got the Wii, so unless he becomes DLC he's not for me, although I'm not that upset since of the four initial Armada Decepticons, Demolisher was my least favorite of the bunch.
