Pre-ordering Transformers: Fall of Cyberteron from either GameStop or Amazon will net customers some unique extras, designed to tickle their nostalgic muscles. Naturally, there are two different offers exclusive to two different retailers, and I'd say GameStop got the better deal.
GameStop gets to offer the "G1 Retro Pack," based off the "generation one" cartoon that most of you will be familiar with. Optimus Prime will get a skin that closely resembles his original look, and players will also unlock a powerful Megatron Gun and Shockwave Blast Cannon for use in the single-player campaign.
Amazon is less impressive, offering a "G2 Bruticus Skin." The second generation of Transformers toys had some funky color schemes, and Bruticus will reflect that with his vivid palette. It certainly looks freaky, but it's hard to top an incentive that rocks Megatron's original transformation.
Feel free to check out the pre-order business in our attached gallery.
