While we know almost everyone would like a chance to ask Mr. Cullen a question during his panel, we have a limited time frame to deal with. As such TFcon will be taking question submissions for the Peter Cullen Q&A until Wednesday July 15th. Please email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Peter Cullen Q&A along with your full name. If your question is chosen you will have the opportunity to ask your question live to Mr. Cullen during his panel.
Dear Vector Prime,
What are the names of the yellow and blue seekers who, along with Acid Storm, make up the trio known as the Rainmakers?
Dear Precipitation Pal,
The Rainmakers are foes most perilous, doing Shockwave's cold bidding on Cybertron and, in some timestreams, on Earth.
The yellow Seeker is known as Nova Storm. This humorless knave nearly winged me with his Trilithium Crystal Cannons. His armor is hardened against heat and radiation, enabling him to function in the heart of a volcano or even, for a short period of time, the outer chromosphere of a star. He is one of the few bots able to withstand the presence of Sunstorm, Shockwave's prototype for Seeker body-modification, for extended periods.
The blue Seeker goes by Ion Storm. I am fortunate enough to have never encountered this cocky Decepticon, for he is an electrokinetic of the first order. This ability could, in theory, generate an electromagnetic pulse and disable all electronics in an area, though I suspect doing so would leave him nearly helpless.
I'd like to thanks Brandy Dixon for providing the artwork, and Betsy Blackie and Bill Forster (along with Brandy) for help with names and bios. Dixon is the colorist, with line art by Rui Onishi and Berious.
