    I was thinking the same thing.

    It's not unheard of either. Remember the demo? Someone got ahold of the Vortex model and had Shockwave as his ability, which is clearly not available for Multiplayer.

    Yeah, I was disappointed that Shockwave didn't make it into muliplayer because of that.

    This pack has no maps in it, also the insecticons are not in the same pack as the dinobots. So therefore it's just another skin pack.

    They can still advertise it like the G1 retro and G2 Fruiticus skins though.

    Would the Green Car Guy be Hound from the G1 Optimus trailer, maybe?

    That doesn't mean we won't get a map pack. I'm pretty sure they SAID we would.
    And I thought the date was Sept. 11?
    Also, the green guy is Hound.

    Single player FoC DLC - you got my money.
    Multiplayer DLC - I don't need it.

    I'm not saying we won't get a map pack in the future. I'm saying we won't be getting one in september...

    I really just want to play as Swoop. I'm so jealous of all the people who can play as him. I always love watching him fly around. xD

    They have two different models. But yes, Dinobots are on the disc. Swoop anyway. I have him.

    If they're charging ANOTHER 800msp for the Dinobot's I'm gonna be hard pressed on whether to get it or not.

    That's just too much money for just 4 skins when the only one I really care about is Grimlock.
    On the other hand, if they added an Escalation map with them all playable as well...

    They aren't skins. They are actual characters--you can see them in the game.

    I agree that HMS is asking too much for these though. They are limited to a limited portion of a supplementary mode, lame.
