    The DS versions were made by a completely different developer and therefor are as disconnected as WFC and the Revenge of the Fallen game.

    although this wouldn't make much sense for HMS to do, but swoop would make an excellent addition to the scientist class

    I hope all 5 are in it (or 6 even so we get Paddles :lol ) I think it's likely to be Swoop and Slag (called Snarl), I hope Sludge and the Triceratops with a foul temper will get in though. Sludge hasn't had any love in a long long time.

    I really can't see them leaving grimlock out of multiplayer seeing as how they are showing him off on banners, magazine covers, and a trailer. I think likely his equivalent is yet to be revealed or maybe it will be a specific insecticon and not a drone.

    I cant say how many Dinobots there will be at this time but I can say there will be at least one level in the game where you play Grimlock and have 2 other Dinobots as your 2 partners for the level.

    you don't necessarily have partners in missions unless it's part of the story. if i understand the gameinformer right, in a single mission you first control starscream to release grimlock, then you control grimlock and kick starscreams ass. (which doesn't make sense.)

    Don't pay Shadow#s too much mind. He's always posting vague generic comments and reciting rumors as insider info.

    As for the not making sense part, here's how it goes.

    Shockwave tries to turn Grimlock and pals into powerful, mind-controlled beasts.

    Starscream decides he wants to control these beasts himself. Releases shackles.

    NO CONTROL ME GRIMLOCK *SMASH*

    This is exactly why I see the dinobots being available as DLC. Your right and they would more than make up the cost I think if they went the DLC pack route. People would eat it up.

    If the dinobots are usable in multiplayer then yeah I would not be surprised in the least if they release DLC with them.

    Also I find it possible they might release new single player missions, which could very well contain more dinobots. Though this one is less likely as I'm unsure how well single player DLC would be received by the core players of FoC. I know I would eat it up and so would most here I assume but this is a small secluded section of the fanbase.

    Maybe it's just me, but I've always felt the idea of robot space dinosaurs to be kinda silly looking.

    I dig it. They put the effort in to giving us a why this happens which is enough for me.

    I would like that but I'm 99% sure we're stuck with the way DOTM handled it. The only good news about this game is the Dinobots. I can't believe I may actually wait a bit and not get this day one. Not happy about the story mode set up they have.

    i think by that he means like in WFC how the characters you didn't choose just walked with you through the level as CPUs only in FOC you probably don't get to choose

    good suggestion. i might hold off too, mostly because the ps3 is in the other house. but then again, a lot can happen in 14 months
