A lot has happened since my last post. Two more characters for War for Cybertron were revealed yesterday, Autobot Warpath and Decepticon Barricade. This is beefing up the roster quite a bit, although we already knew about Warpath (we just hadn’t seen his pretty face yet). Barricade is another cross-generational character jumping into G1 canon from the controversial movie-verse just like Demolisher from Armada.
So I think it’s time for a little recap of the cast thus far.
- Optimus Prime
- Air Raid
- Omega Supreme
Exciting, exciting! If you look at the roster images above, you can see that a few characters are from the same body model – Starscream and Skywarp are the same, Ironhide and Ratchet share the same vehicle mode, and Barricade and Breakdown are in the same stance and could possible share the same model as well. There are many similarities, including their stance.
Warpath and all of the exclusive pre-order characters have complete unique stylings which is great to see. We can all expect to get a nice smattering of character designs this Summer.
So who wants to make some more predictions on characters we will see? I already guessed Lockdown, so it’s time to make some more guesses!
– I’m going to guess we’ll see Cliffjumper on the body style of Bumblebee.
– Super special unlockable Nemesis Version of Optimus Prime in black
– I still think we are going to see Onslaught as a Decepticon.
Feel free to share your own guesses by leaving a comment!
