    I can understand why, in single player, classes would not be restricted to one type of chassis, but it's still a bit of a let down that ruling applies to multiplayer.

    Also Cybertron is going to need way more stairs for Skywarp's special attack.

    Skywarp's bot mode is pretty hideous. I really can't believe anyone could look at that and go "it looks great!!!" I know, I know, different strokes and all that, but it just looks so horribly deformed and blocky. jet mode's not bad but the teeny-tiny wings rub me the wrong way.

    Iron Hide's bot mode is almost actually looking good (maybe the first WFC redesign that's actually worked for me.) he's still got the chubby/awkward WFC proportions, but it actually works with his design. His alt mode though is pretty lame and unimaginative though (which, i suppose is consistent with his G1 design) ~ adding the yellow stripes on the side would have been a nice touch...

    I was psyched to hear Skywarp was in, but yeah, his robot mode isn't as awesome as I'd hoped. I always liked him having huge black wings lined with purple.

    das nice! ironhide's design look really good. I like the way his arms look very humanoid yet masculine at the same time. skywarps jet mode is a little weirdy, but it might be the angle. I like em both. Looking forward to the complete toy line as well!

    Didn't we already know about Ironhide?

    Skywarp doesn't surprise me. He is one of the more popular Decepticons.

    I am getting more and more excited for the game but it will entail trading in Revenge of the Fallen for it (I don't have much of an allowance so I'm trading in all of my games except for MW2, Bad Company 2, and Halo 3 Mythic Disk). I see that Soldiers are not always tanks and Scouts are not always cars....

    the only thing i dont like about the seeker jets in this game is the wings are way to small. i wish they were a little wider. that would improve the look 100% IMO. otherwise i really dig the jets. what i really like about these transformers is they go from a complicated robot mode, to a very compact alt mode. reminds me alot of animated.

    both of these look cool. ironhide looks like a total badass, while skywarps head design looks flawless. one minor complaint though are their ridiculously petite feet.

    I absolutely love Ironhide's vehicle mode. Simple, but tough. Very much in keeping with the well-written bio.

    Bot mode has shoulder kibble problems, but I'd buy a toy of that without hesitation.

    Skywarp is a bit of a mess though.

    Ironhide looks like he wants to kick some con's aft in, and it's always nice to see my favorite seeker getting a little love.
