The War For Cybertron Cast Is Now Complete

The War For Cybertron Cast Is Now Complete

With the addition of Autobots Sideswipe and Jetfire and Decepticon Thundercracker, the armies participating in the War for Cybertron are now complete. Now all we need is a little energon, and a lot of luck.

The war begins on June 22, when Transformers: War for Cybertron hits for the Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS. Activision has revealed the final three cast members to join the warring parties, putting rest to thoughts on the possibility of gestalt groups like the Aerialbots or Combaticons making a full, playable appearance.

Still, Activision picked a strong trio of characters to finish up the reveals. Sideswipe was one of the first generations of Transformers to see release, along with Decepticon jet Thundercracker, both toys originally part of the Japanese Diaclone line.

Jetfire, on the other hand, was originally a VF-1S Super Valkyrie Fighter from the Macross series, and one of the cooolest damn figures to ever grace the Transformers line.

Check out the trio’s vehicle forms below.

What characters were you hoping to play that didn’t make the cut?


  • I thought his original 80’s name was SkyFire not JetFire…

    Could be wrong of course I was just puny 5-7 yr old when classic Transformers aired =3

    • Spot on Drae, where is the true voice of the Decepticons. His token appearance in the latest movie by Mr Bay was appalling. Welker’s voice in the last few Transformers games made them worthwhile… why is Eeyore getting all the fame?

  • jetfire was the origional name but people realised the name ‘jetfire’ was somehow related to macross/robotech line so to avoid copyright issues they renamed him to skyfire
