Optimus Prime In A More Familiar, Downloadable Outfit

This summer, you will be able to add to the Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen roster through the magic of downloadable content. We don’t know when, we don’t know for how much. We do know this robot, though.

Activision has released more images of Transformers that will be part of the bundle. We’ve got original-style Optimus Prime and new-style Soundwave.

These two robots join the original Starscream, the new TK and others for this upcoming DLC pack.

While Japan has a few different PS3 colours to choose from, Americans are stuck with…black. Oh, and a silver controller. But only until October, because in October, there’ll be two new controller shades to choose from.
