Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen Pre-Order Bonus Is Golden

Activision, which really needs to learn how to space out its Transformers news, is granting fans who pre-order Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen access to golden versions of Optimus Prime and Megatron.

An exclusive pre-order bonus for those who put their money down at GameStop, a special code to unlock the golden versions of the faction leaders will come as part of a special flipbook keepsake, featuring animation of the two characters transitioning from their normal ugly forms to their golden ugly forms. The golden versions of the characters will be playable in multiplayer only, once again giving other players a sure indication that you are a GameStop pre-order monkey.

Interesting promotion. Kind of reminds me of Takara's golden Lucky Draw Transformers premiums in Japan, only far less desirable.
