    wow. this looks flipping sweet. you can count me in as a solder class as well. i always was a practitioner of the philosophy of "giant melee weapons of doom and equally giant F.U.B.A.R. cannons get the job done just fine." :D 

    and as far as templates for the classes, the solider is essentially onslaught, the leader, is prime, the scout, is bumblebee, and the scientist is air raid.

    Here's what I could make out for the multiplayer characters:

    Soldier:

    Weapons:
    - Neutron Assault Rifle
    - XB Scrapmaker
    - EMP Shotgun
    - Thermo-Rocket Launcher
    - Energon Hammer
    - Flak Grenade

    Abilities:
    - Hover
    - Whirlwind (melee attack)
    - Ammo Beacon (replenish team's ammo supply)
    - Energon Sling (?) (take away enemy abilities for shot while)

    Killstreaks:
    - 3 = Ammo Matrix (refill ammo and grenades for team)
    - 5 = Electromagnetic Pulse (disable enemy abilities for shot while)
    - 7 = Omega Missile (guided missle with mass destruction) (MW2 Predator Missile???)

    Scientist:

    Weapons:
    - Neutron Assault Rifle
    - Photon Burst Rifle
    - Energon ??? Ray
    - EMP Shotgun
    - Energon Club
    - Energon Grenade

    Abilities:
    - Shockwave (push back and damage enemies)
    - Spawn Sentry (planted sentry drone)
    - Drain (take energy away form enemies)
    - Camouflage (???) (appear as an ally to the enemy)

    Killstreaks:
    - 3 = Health Matrix (teammates recieve extra health for every kill)
    - 5 = Overshield Matrix (teammates receive over-shields)
    - 7 = Nuclear Shock Cannon (spawn a usable cannon)

    Scout:

    Weapons:
    - Plasma Cannon
    - Nullray
    - Energon Battle Pistol
    - Scatter Blaster
    - Energon Sword
    - EMP Grenade

    Abilities:
    - Cloaking
    - Dash
    - Decoy Trap (spawn a decoy pickup that stuns the enemy)
    - Mark Target (tags enemy with pulses that weakens them and reveals their location)

    Killstreaks:
    - 3 = Orbital Beacon (display enemies locations)
    - 5 = Energon Recharger (health regeneration for short time)
    - 7 = Orbital Beacon 2.0 (map-wide EMP blast that marks all enemy targets)

    Leader:

    Weapons:
    - Ion Blaster
    - Energon Battle Pistol
    - Magma Frag Launcher
    - Pulse Cannon
    - Energon Axe
    - Thermo Mine

    Abilities:
    - War Cry (area of effect improves damage and armor)
    - Moleculon Bomb (blows up nearby enemies and damages further out)
    - Barrier (deploys a shield)
    - Disruption (???) (causes nearby enemies to change form and be locked in that form for a short while)

    Killstreaks:
    - 3 = Intercooler (decreases cool-down for abilities)
    - 5 = P.O.K.E 2.0 (Deadly melee attack that kills nearby enemies instantly)
    - 7 = Thermo Mine ??? (spawners spawn a trail of mines)


    I have a feeling that this will play a lot like MW2. Not too much of a fan of MW2, but hey... it's Transformers, it makes more sense for robots to have abilities than it does for human soldiers to.

    Looks awesome although customisation seems quite light. It could be that we're being slipped little crumbs of info prior to release.

    Looks like it will be possible to create your own Cliffjumper, Nemesis Prime, Seekers and Classics Style Ultra Magnus.

    Hopefully there will be unique parts available online too.

    Maybe the guys at HighMoon were among the fans that wanted a Leader Lugnut figure.

    Seriously though, that's a pretty cool little easter egg feature for the fans.

    Yeah, you can change the model's base color. Sweet!

    right then

    So there are four classes all together?

    So to use other online game stereotypes as an example:

    The soldier - Same as fighter class in which you hack and slash at people with a huge sword/axe/katana. The typical berserkers and tanks(maybe) in fights. Normally have high HP and ATK.

    Scientist - Healers/Medics/buffers, the type that people want to have on their team to heal them or buff them. Considering the fact that the one in the video can fly, its also a good possibility they also do air support and play sniper roles. Normally have high MP and INT(tech skills since its robots?)

    Scout - Assasin/thief/spy roles, they're the type that you hate because they use their ninja kills and kill you when you're not looking. People are gonna hate you on sight when they see you. High SPD and tech(?)

    Leader - I wasnt sure for this one, some online games have character types with the skills of other classes but not reallly excelling at them, a jack of all trades but master or none. Other have them really tough to kill and provide slight buffs and healing to other characters. I'll leave this one alone till I see the gameplay.

    I already posted a thread about the site updating in the other forum. That looks like Jazz.

    Nice find! I like the Autobot.

    Head looks like Jazz, but the colors are all wrong. I'm guessing that's somebody else. All other characters share colors similar to their G1 days, so why wouldn't Jazz.

    Looks a little bit like Red Alert to me.

    Wow...Kinda underwhelming, actually.

    It's DRIFT!! No, really, I've no clue. Maybe Red Alert? It kinda looks like the Sideswipe-lookin robot from one of the trailers I've seen.
