    I'm excited for this now.

    For campaign mode it, sadly, seems that every refinement has come at the cost of something. No co-op and no character choice in exchange for a more cinematic story experience and refined gameplay.

    Goddamn, the suspense is killing me. Did **ANYONE** try to find out if customization has RGB sliders?! So it seems it has a huge palette of colors...but what about a RGB slider?

    So campaign progression is tied to multiplayer for parts? Good stuff.

    RGB = Red Green Blue, the three colors that make up all colors we see in an image. Note this is different then the primary colors they tend to teach in school. Images on a screen, any screen, use green instead of yellow.

    Depending on the game I've seen it used to either shift the hues of every color on a character at once by shifting the amount of one of those three in the mix, or I've seen it used to color specific parts by adjusting the sliders to get teh exact hue you wanted.

    For instance if you wanted to make one piece of armor dark red you would shift things one way, for another piece you might want it a lighter shade so you would adjust the sliders down. If the focus is customizability its really the way to go, but it tends to be easy to put in a specific pallet selection

    I wanna see that robot in Image 20 transform. He has 6 tires.
    Also, that scientist or whoever that green guy is has METROPLEX's head?!

    And in Image 21 I can see Kickback's head, and in Image 30 I can see a robot with Kickback's insect claw arms in his back.
    And in Image 32, whose shoulders are those?

    Oh, thanks. I keep forgetting that acronym.

    From bottom to top

    (IMG32) Air Raid's shoulders
    (IMGS30/21) Kickback is now confirmed to be the "Buzz" Body-type
    (IMG20)He'll only have four tires in vehicle mode. Shame. And GOOD EYE DUDE!

    Hmm, maybe it's head-only like with Cliffjumper.

    The back was identical to the front in WFC. It's not the same.

    Which may allow for a Tracks customization or possibly Hot Rod.

    Here's a video of what RGB sliders do: RGB Slider / LED Strip lighting controls with m..myhome - YouTube

    They have them in the mech game series Armored Core. With RGB sliders, you can take a preset color, and then tweak the color's hue with the sliders. You can really do some great things, color wise, with RGB sliders.

    I'll be OK without RGB sliders if the palette is wide and varied. Like...I hope I can make G2 colored characters with the character customization. They SAY is big, but I want to know what the range of colors on the palette are like. The last thing I want is dull, dark, gritty colors all over the place like in WfC.

    So just by the few MP customization screens I'm seeing, the potential looks vast.

    Simple things such as Ratchet's head on Megatron's body for a makeshift Galvatron. That's even without any heavy tinkering.

    Except Ratchet is a Destroyer and Megatron is a Titan.
    The shoulder cannon in the picture with Ratchet's head is locked to the torso. It's Hound, so it's iconic, so it has to be there.
