    Will we be able to use these three in the game, or while they only be in cutscenes. This may be already confirmed, but I have no idea.

    Being logical, Megatron will definitely be playable.

    I think Starscream will also be playable, but I have my doubts about Shockwave.

    Of course, all 3 will surely be available in Multiplayer.

    I imagine that Starscream and Megatron will be playable. Not so sure about Shockwave.

    Megatron is most probably playable, and I'm pretty sure I read something that said Starscreams mission ended when Grimlocks began. Shockwave is the only one unconfirmed, though I'm leaning towards "no".

    Let's see.

    Megatron: Definatly playable.

    Starscream: Has a strong chance but may not be as much as Megatron.

    Shockwave: Seems unlikey for now but who knows? He may be playable somehow!:)

    Yep, Starscream was confirmed as being playable when they made the reference you point out.

    I don't know, megatron seems like a no brainer, starscream is equally so, but Shockwave..? we shall see. All I know, is that he was a beast in WFC.

    I wonder how many levels the game will have? Hopefully each "main" character gets a level.

    Megatron - It wouldn't make sense not to have him, but I have my doubts with unknown reason...

    Starscream - I read something in GI about "Starscream's level" to be opened up and very wide....

    Shockwave - What action would a mad scientist get into? Besides needing to fight his way to an access panel or something, I have no idea what plot point would require Shockwave gameplay.

    That's an idea! Antother could be we can have Grimlock fight Shockwave throguh their diffreent perspectives like you play as Shockwave for one mintute and then you play Grimlock for another.

    I think all three will be playable/choose-able. If they do FOC at all like WFC, they will probably have character selection for each level. And if Shockwave is still a jet, I want a flying mission with Shockwave, Slipstream and Screamer all together.

    Sadly, this isn't the case. They've already stated that levels are character-specific, like the DOTM game.

    I am doubt HM would make Shockwave mp only two games in a row. I guess like Jazz there will be at least one level as Shockwave.

    A Grimlock level has been confirmed, and we don't know if

    1. Grimlock gets to safety.
    2. Shockwave finds out before Grimlock is too far away.

    I know about that level. Grimlock escapes with the other Dinobots and Jazz ad Cliffjumper are assigned to go after them. This is my theory:

    Grimlock escapes with the Dinobots. He gets lost, and that's where his playable level starts.

    After you finish the level, then you play the Jazz & Cliffjumper version of Grimlock's level.

    And maybe after that, you play Shockwave's version of Grimlock's level, where he also tries to track him down.

    Just ideas, the game could be totally different from my thinking.
