    I have never heard of shopto.net in my life. I'd rather get the Swoop one from Play.com just because you can use it in multiplayer too. I wonder who will have the G1 Optimus skin now.

    i've heard of them. tbh though , wasn't jazz a preorder for us somewhere in the UK for WFC. I ended up getting him at game without preordering. The distribution for WFC wasnt that great over here. Just wait for the eventual DLC anyhoo

    I've heard of ShopTo but never used them. I've been checking Amazon (UK) daily along with GAME and i even emailed GAME to find out if they're offering anything as their website hasn't been updated for FOC in months, this was their response this morning:
    "It appears that we are not offering any preorder bonuses with this title at the moment. We will update the website if this changes". So far it's only Play.com offering a MP Swoop skin and now ShopTo that i know of offering pre-orders. I'll keep checking Amazon and GAME to see if there's any updates with them. :)

    Yeah it was a bit of mess over here wasn't it, i managed to get Jazz with my WFC as he came with the GAME version which is where i usually buy most of my games from.

    so, so far, the UK is getting swoop and now G2 bruticus ??

    if this is correct, then its typical that the only prorder bonus i really wanted (g1 optimus) is not announced in the UK (yet?)

    I thought GAME was going bust. I'm surprised they're still around. I too though have been checking GAME and Amazon UK for any pre-order bonuses. I've also been checking HMV as I know they sometimes get pre-order bonuses as well.

    They got bought out and they closed a lot of stores but they're still selling new games.

    I still think G1 Optimus with the Shockwave Cannon and G1 Megatron is the best of them all so far. Swoop doesn't come with special guns.

    I wish the exclusive guns could be used in MP though.

    on the FOC website. under uk preorders it now shows 4 retailers rather than the 2. play, game, amazon and hmv. Play already have their preorder so I'm assuming this means the other 3 will get theirs too.

    Shop-to are brilliant, been using them for a couple of years now and never had any problems with them... good prices and i get the game a day or two early.

    I've canceled my pre order and going into the GAME since they have no bonuses and either do Amazon and I rather use my gift card.

    Everyone will be able to see him in multiplayer. He is also usable in single player.

    I'm really not bothered about the G1 Prime skin, but as far as I'm aware Grimlock parts and insecticon bits will be available in the DLC. Swoop was my favourite Dinobot but Amazon who are yet to put up any details is the cheapest seller by £5.

    Dudicus is tempting as I have preordered the toy, and vortex looks better, but I'd rather be certain in getting Swoop.

    Dudicus and Gpt1mus are practically confirmed since all three preorder bonuses for last year were re-released as DLC. (But it's still fun to have them early)

    Yeah, optimus is even part of something called the retro pack, he'll definately be for dlc. I hope dudicus gets released in a pack with some other g2 skins. Green and purple megs or blue grimlock anyone?
