    I'm just trying to find out: who's giving the best perks for buying the game?

    I know pre-ordering at Gamestop gets you a keychain with a code to unlock gold Prime and Megatron skins.

    Pre-ordering from Amazon gets you a code to unlock the G1-themed Ironhide skin.

    Wal-Mart is advertising movie money with purchase of the game, but I think that isn't specific to Wal-Mart since Gamestop is showing that as well.

    Is there any word on what other retailers are offering with pre-orders or will be offering on release day?

    So the Amazon code will give you a red Ironhide, like G1?

    Amazon UK is offering a Starscream skin when you pre-order. No word on what, but I'd take a guess and say G1 themed.

    Sort of. The skin doesn't make Ironhide completely red, but it add a lot of red to him.

    Amazon gives you a G1 Ironhide skin? Damn I didn't know that. I might have to try to get it from there then.

    All I know is that I may regret it, but I plan on getting this. Timed missions are gone (you are timed, but for cool points not for fail) controls seemed tighter, and online looks fun, even if just the concept of blasting someone, transforming and flying away.

    Meh, not really caring about the bonuses. I just want to get the game, put it in, and kick some mechanical ass.

    I already have 20 bucks down on it and I'll put the remaining 40 tonight. Even if the single sucks, running around online should be fun.

    Yeah, I do hope in single player they have the forest battle. I read that leveling up in single player carries over to online.

    Really? I haven't heard about that. IMO multiplayer should be more balanced, and if this is implemented it may make some characters overpowered. We'll see.

    I'm not too concerned about the codes. They'll be all over the Net like the ones from the first game in no time.

    You playing as a Bot or Con? I’m Bot all the way, but if you’re a Con I’ll hunt you down to the ends of the Earth or Cybertron lol. Online on this will be 10x better than SF4.

    I'll play Autobot mostly, but I'll also cross over to the Dark Side every once awhile and play the Decepticons. Although 'Bots have a couple of aerial Transformers, Decepticons still have better ones like Starscream, Grandor/Blackout, and Seeker (Skywarp).

    You buncha goody-two-shoes. I better not be outnumbered, playing online exclusively as a Decepticon (preferably Long Haul) unless circumstances absolutely dictate otherwise.

    Dude, don't worry. I already got my Con game plan. Sideways will dominate.
