    Like the title says people, check it out:

    Transformers: Fall of Cybertron - PlayStation 3 - EB Games Australia

    [​IMG]

    Note: It specifies G1 Optimus as "playable" and Swoop as an "Unlock". Seems to me that while G1 Optimus will be available in Single and Multi-player, Swoop may be only Multi-player but that's just speculation.

    - Bonus A1 Grimlock poster when pre-ordered in store

    - Xbox 360 version comes with a Bumblebee avatar as well

    Okay, slightly confused. Does this mean Gamestop or EB games specifically?

    Cause aren't they one in the same? Or am I just unaware of game stores these days?

    But man, that Grimlock poster along with the playable Swoop is too much to pass up, I need both.

    And if any of the Dinobots were going to be playable, it was going to be Swoop, his Dino mode is the only one that can really carry over to MP.

    Swoop the Scientist? It's legit :p

    Cool, I guess. I was under the assumption Swoop was going to be playable without having to be an unlockable but whatevs.

    Is this going to end up being only in Australia? The US site is coming up with nothing new just yet, and I would really like to get my hands on one of those Grimlock Posters.

    I wonder if this is an early unlock and you can get him by beating the campaign?

    Does anyone else think Swoop is a new skin for Starscream?

    I have a strong feeling that Swoop will be for MP only, so I have no feeling on it one way or the other. The poster looks awesome. I'd love to get my hands on at least one of those.

    Damn awesome! Shame I only pre-ordered Optimus. I guess I'll have to wait for DLC.

    I think swoop's for MP. While he may be a partial orinthopter, he's still close enough for flying heads and grenades.

    Though if we don't get a Dinobot Escalation level with the four S's I'll be disappointed. Let Grimlock be a special for the later waves, and have Sludge, Slug, Snarl and Swoop fight off insecticons and deceptigoons left and right.

    Swoop can work with Multiplayer because essentially, he works like a jet. He can do the turbo boost and fly like a normal jet, and he can hover where he just flaps his wings. Whether he gets rockets or a machine gun in that mode is another thing.

    My fingers are crossed right now for the US Gamestop site to update and list the Grimlock poster and Swoop Bonuses on their website.

    That's what Swoop looks like?

    That's... way too blocky. I normally like the FoC designs but that honestly seems more like Sludge or Slag in terms of body proportions.
