The latest issue of Newtype (USA edition) has an interview with someone very close to the production of the Armada television show, director Hidehito Ueda. In the interview he reveals that Armada was originally going to be a direct continuation of G1 (picking up after Rebirth) but Hasbro axed that idea. I´m going to say this again so it can really sink in. Hasbro axed the idea of a direct sequel to G1, and instead, gave us what is now Armada. Also, Unicron wasn´t added until fairly late in production. So they had to really try to squeeze him in there. This, according to Ueda, is why the pacing for the series is so erratic. He also says that they were under constant supervision by Hasbro US. So, if you don´t like the Armada cartoon, blame Hasbro. Of course, we´ve all blamed Hasbro from the very beginning, so it´s not too different. Point to them for giving us Unicron though...

A Dreamwave artist was interviewed at Canada´s "Transformerscon" yesterday. Among other interesting names that were brought up (Skyfire and Ravage), was another Simon Furman favorite. Since we´ve already got Scorponok, you´ve probably guessed that the other is Galvatron. The artist also stated that Energon Galvatron would look similar to his G1 Cartoon incarnation. Is all of this true? Or is it just preliminary information that can change at the drop of a hat? We´ll keep you posted.

This picture seems to show that a Transformer we´ve not seen in volume 2 will make his appearance by issue 6. Note the moniters.

Originally, we´d heard that the special 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime figure would make it´s grand debut at OTFCC (Or "The Convention that REPLACED BotCon" to those who´ve been living in a hole for the last several months) by Hasbro. However, it now appears that the figure is SET to debut in Toyfare issue 75 in September. I say "set to debut" because Unicron was set to debut in Toyfare too, but certain internet sites stole it out from under them. This will likely happen again, so keep your eyes open.

Gimmicks, gimmicks, gimmicks! Lately Transformers toys have been all about gimmicks. And by "lately" I mean in the last fifteen or so years. Be it Headmasters, Targetmasters, Powermasters, Breast Force, Pretenders, Laser Rods, Actionmasters, Transmetals, Powerdashers, Micromasters, or Mini-Cons, it seems that giant robots engaged in a civil war spanning millions of years, hundreds of episodes, and a metric ton of comic books just isn´t cool enough for kids these days. Energon too will feature a gimmick? Will it be another "Gotta Catch ´em All" gimmick like the mini-cons? No. This time each side will have their own gimmick. The Autobots will resurrect the fan-favorite gimmick of combining. The Decepticons´ gimmick will harken back to the days of Astrotrain and Blitzwing and utilize Triple-Changing to its n-th degree. This should make for an interesting series, and a fun overall toyline!

Hasbro´s lead designer has confirmed that the Scorponok-like Decepticon featured at the Licensing Show was, in fact, Scorponok. Megatron will still be in the series, but we´ve yet to catch a glimpse of the notorious Decepticon leader. The question now is will Scorponok be a reissue of the classic figure or a new mold? We´ll find out soon enough...

After a recent Dreamwave Productions appearence, Soundwave75 of the DREAMWAVE BOARDS returned with some interesting notes straight from the mouth of Pat Lee.
Dreamwave isn´t going after the rights to the Japanese Transformers series. At least not now. Though he mentioned that "Maybe in a few years..."
When asked about the upcoming (and highly anticipated) Worlds Collide story in Armada (Starting with issue 14 in August) he mentioned that we could expect more G1 characters in the series than just Galvatron. Who will these other characters be? Scourge? Cyclonus? Goldbug? We just don´t know. Yet...

The Maximal and Predacon alphabets have been cracked. What secrets do these highly evolved (and highly entertaining) Transformers hold? A cure to cancer? A remedy to the deadly SARS virus? The cosmic forces that allowed the Chicago Cubs to triumph over the New York Yankees? Probably not. But give it a look anyway, it´s something to do.

We got a tip about a Jetstorm prototype currently on ebay. It has a nice orange and grey color scheme with a Decepticon symbol. Though the color scheme probably isn´t final as this is just a test shot. Could this be another Universe figure? Check it out here.

In a word: No. What follows was a clever little jab at current events in the fandom written by a fan:

"All attendees are to be aware that only Official Hasbro products are to be allowed in. Anyone wearing a homemade Transformers t-shirt will be asked to leave the premises. Any merchandise for sale such as Marvel Transformers comics will be removed due to license problems, and they also contradict current brand usage. A version of TF:TM dubbed to replace the phrase "H*t R*d" with the accurate character name of Rodimus Major will be screened. All toy dealers must be aware that they can only sell figures and accessories that conform to current toy safety standards and licenses.
Remember, we´re fans just like you,
Sincerely,
Hasbro PLC"
This "statement" has been making its way around the boards today. And, for once, I´m going to squash a rumor instead of spreading one. This is NOT true. It´s biting sarcasm for the most part, but becomes an obvious joke when it makes mention of editing Hot Rod´s name. Don´t worry, dealers will still be selling Takara products (and prototypes) and you won´t have to remove your home-made Transformer shirt. Hasbro would not have the authority to stop dealers from selling Non-Hasbro products (with the exception of bootlegged G1 tapes).
