    When I was looking at the 4 posters in the concept room I noticed from right to left the camera showed ..shockwave, Arcee, swindle/sunstreaker, wheeljack.... just an educated guess but I would think those posters are alternating factions, con then autobot, which would put imo the yellow bot as swindle but who knows eh lol

    I'm still in the Sunstreaker camp.

    The lights on him look more red than purple to me.

    I'm leaning towards Sunstreaker as well. Those red panel parts (not the energon glow) are like a visual cue to what he traditionally has.

    You're not.

    However I swear I'm the only one that sees the mass amounts of purple highlights, which Autobots do not have.

    Then you've never seen the colour red. Look at his chest. It's purple.

    Some things are hard for people....like colors, shapes, factions symbols, etc....How about the front wheel section of his body? No way in hell that belongs to a sports car instead of a jeep or suv...c'mon people....Sunstreaker would look a LOT more like Sideswipe, dontcha think???

    I thought he did have the head thingies, but I have to admit it is hard for me to tell. I just wish HM would release a list of all of the playable characters or at east tell us that they will release a few new names a month. Also HM needs to tell us which characters will playable in campaign mode and which ones will be escalation only. And while their at HM could tell us if there will be a beast class in verses multiplayer.

    The face looks malevolent, the hands are sharp, there are many angles on him. He looks like a Decepticon. Also, if he was Sunstreaker, the resemblance to the previously designed Sideswipe would be a lot more apparent. Also, I don't see the resemblance to Swindle. If it was Swindle, there would be way more purple on him, and the yellow would be a lot more drab. I think the yellow character might be Dragstrip, actually.

    I love it.

    Maybe it's a bit too much like an earth vehicle, but I don't care. Awesome.

    At most, it looks like the color pink. I still see red more than purple.

    I like Wheeljack's car mode. Look's pretty Earthly, but that's no big deal, because it's sleek and cool. I want toys of all these designs!

    I like Wheeljack's alt-mode. It is a bit too Earth-like to fully make sense, but the design is good enough I can look past that. I'm really hoping he gets a toy, but with so many other FoC characters mentioned by shadow as on the way (Optimus, Ratchet, Ironhide, all five Dinobots, Jazz, Megatron, and Starscream), I fear he'll be left out.

    It's definitely Swindle, but I always thought it could be Drag Strip (although it looks more like Swindle).

    Yep I really would like a toy of wheeljack and it prob depends on how much he is in the game, if he isn't in it much then I guess we get no toy, but if he is in it quite often then :drool: :drool:  , lovin the car mode , although as mentioned "bit to earth-like" but jazz was earth-like and it seemed ok :)
