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.
