    Okay, so, grey shield, huge character, and a sword?

    Any idea if the character was swinging the sword like Grimlock does in campaign? Did the character use a gun at all?

    Remember, you can give your robots dinosaur heads, to terrible, terrible effect.

    Not a Hacker. You can find Grimlock and Slug's Robot and Dinosaur mode heads in MP Player customization already. I'm guessing the player you encountered played Multiplayer to the point where they could use Grimlock's Head on their Robot mode body.

    Hmm, was the sword out at all times like Grimlock's? If so the Dinobot DLC might add a lot more to the game, or it was so modded and won't be that way.

    Yeaaaaaah.....I tried the Grimlock head on my Titan, and wow did it bacfire, plus it looked really off :/

    There's so many variables to think of when using these guy, how fast can they go? Do they get special properties over the base classes? And how to you balance out the bigger target aspect? More health and shields?

    And my biggest question, will we get headshots on them in dinomode? Because I don't think we should get that for what is essentially a vehicle mode.

    There's a huge difference between a Titan with an ugly dino-head and a hulking Grimlock character with a sword.

    Also, the Dinobot robot mode heads are not in-game as of yet.

    I saw a Swoop today in Conquest. No joke. I didn't believe it at first but the wings started flapping. I got close and confirmed it was...and then I proceeded to murder him. He should've been watching his back. :lol 

    Anyways, I'm on X-box. Nice to know you can use Swoop parts in competitive MP.

    Swoop was a Preorder special. But if you see any other Dinobot.. well. HAXXX

    Anyway, why no Insecticon love? I've seen a few T-Rexes in Multiplayer (PC) but no bugs :c

    Guys guys, GUYS. This is good, now we know get to use Grimlock's actual parts.

    When I wrote the initial post, I kinda had doubts because he said he didn't see a dino mode, BUT NOW HELL YEAH!!!

    Technically, they are, they're just Prime mode bonuses. Or maybe it was level 25 bonuses, or Prime level 25. Either way, they're NOT Prime Level 100 bonuses!

    Just level 25 except for Typticon, which is a first Prime bonus.

    I see, guess we got some circuits crossed there.

    Anyhow, I really do want their bot heads though. Really hoping we get them when the DLC is available. My leader needs a new head, just hoping their red eyes change colors with your faction.

    I really want the robot heads, too. It's very likely, seeing as the little paper thing that confirmed the release dates showed their robot forms, and the preorder lets you use Swoop's robot head.

    I play as Swoop. He was preorder DLC.
    He's actually pretty common online.
