    Skywarp looks beautiful. I'm stoked they added him to this game. He and Thrust are going to be my main Seekers.

    hmm, it would've been nice if skywarp could actually......"warp" and
    ironhide has too much arm kibble on for my taste but can you do..... Still a day one purchase.

    I love the Bay movie versions of Ironhide and Skywarp, and although I dislike their G1 counterparts, these War for Cybertron versions are so bad-ass! :thumb  :thumb 

    I especially like Ironhide's "tough guy" look and Skywarp's menacing pose. Both look really really good and very intriguing. :thumb  :thumb

    Ironhide is my favourite WFC design so far, he looks great. The Decepticon jets look better than that early concept art we saw but I still think they should be slimmed down overall, they are a little clumsy looking. Still, they look like who they're supposed to be.

    Well, considering that the Transformers don't need to breathe, which more than likely means that there's no air on Cybertron, thus lacking the need for aerodynamics. Which would mean that all the "jet" transformers fly like a space shuttle on Cybertron and in space, thus lacking the need for wings. But they're there anyway.

    I wonder if Skywarp can use two abilities at once. I expected him to warp, not cloak. Dashing and cloaking would bring about the same result though, I suppose.

    EDIT:
    Have we been watching the same videos? The space shuttle cannot turn on a dime like we’ve seen these rockets do.

    We’ve seen Air Raid and other Aerialbots with longer wings too, and regardless of whether the cartoon is the main source or not, Cybertron has an atmosphere and oxygen. If memory serves correct, Spike during the final season of Transfomers, walked around Cybertron without a spacesuit.

    True, but Oxyben would explain why fire burns on Cybertron.

    The trailers showed fire burning meaning there indeed is oxygen on WFC Cybertron.

    We don't know. A lot of people have been assuming its Jazz but I personally don't think so: wrong colors.

    I just seen these characters on the website and I am really stoked and happy that this game is really starting to turn out really good. I can't wait to play it and I know I am going to get it on the day it comes out.

    They sort of replaced Skywarp's teleportation with cloaking...nifty. I reckon teleporting is not an option in this game (too hard to pull off), but cloaking will kind of make him appear to pop in and out of battles :D 
    I disagree with that. He's pretty white, with a blue visor. All of the red comes from the glowing parts all the Transformers have in this game. The purple bits are from Shockwave behind him, which gives the illusion he has more color.

    The only thing he's lacking are the racing stripes, but since he didn't scan an Earth mode yet, he could well be just white/silverish on Cybertron for now. :) 

    And he's definitely the same model as seen in the multiplayer trailer, which to me, looked clearly like a recolored Jazz.

    Maybe he's not a pre-order, but they just put his image there as some kind of stock image, though. We won't know for sure until a new pre-order is announced, I guess. :)
