In what may be the worst kept secret in the TF fandom right now, Rodimus Prime (thought by many to be the worst representation of a Transformers leader EVER) is scheduled to be reissued in either late 2003 or early 2004. For those of you who didn´t buy an original Rodimus Prime in ´87 or pick up the original reissue (which has been slashed in price repeatedly as nobody seems to want it) this is your chance. We may never see a reissue of Jetfire, Soundwave, or Grimlock, but we´ve got Rodimus Prime coming. Yay.

At the recent Wizard World Chicago convention, Rhino Officials dropped some very interesting tidbits of information to fans. The upcoming 2-Disc Transformers: The Movie DVD set will include what the Rhino rep called "Previous unrealeased bridging material between the movie and the 3rd season." The first thing that pops to mind is, of course, Scramble City. Fans know that this is actually set between seasons 2 and 3, but it´s possible the Rhino rep just made a small error. IF that wasn´t enough to get you excited (and for those who´ve seen Scramble City on know it´s really nothing to be too excited about) how about this bombshell? According to the rep, Rhino has plans to release at least some of the Japanese TF episodes. This opens up all sorts of other questions like, "Will they be dubbed? If so, by who?" Between Beast Wars, Beast Machines, RiD, Armada, and now the Japanese TF series, it looks like we´ll be adding to our TF DVD collections for years to come...

UPDATE: Episode 39 aired on YTV. Overload was nowhere to be seen.

For those of you wondering when Overload will appear in the Armada cartoon, your answer is "Episode 39." HOWEVER, since we won´t be seeing any new Armada episodes until September, you´ve still got a decent wait ahead of you.

Every now and then a rumor comes along that´s so completely off-the-wall that it absolutely must be posted. The topic of this rumor is current "War and Peace" writer, Brad Mick. Since he was announced as being the writer for the G1 series, questions started popping up. Questions like "Why haven´t we heard of this guy before?" or "What happened to Chris Sarracini?" Eventually, the questions shifted into accusations like "Brad Mick is really Pat Lee!" or "Brad Mick is really Simon Furman!" Well, this rumor is in the spirit of the last two.
RUMOR: Brad Mick is really Chris Sarracini.
It´s a fact that originally, Mr. Sarracini was listed as writing the second G1 miniseries (Back cover of Armada issue 8). It´s also a fact that Mr. Sarracini was originally given credit for the preview of Volume 2 that was included in the Volume 1 Trade Paperback (Back cover of Volume 1 issue 5 (first print). Last year, Mr. Sarracini made his rounds at Comic Book conventions. This year, he was absent from the same conventions he´d attended the year before. In his place, sat Brad Mick. Photographs snapped at both conventions seem to show that they are two different people. Or do they? It´s another fact is that baseball caps can be removed and facial hair can be shaven. A supporter had the chance to speak with Mr. Mick at OTFCC. When asked about the work of Mr. Sarracini, Mick was heard to say "I ****ing hated him." What better way to distance himself from what may essentially be an "alt ID" than to basically "flame" himself? After all, professional courtesy would seemingly prevent one from saying such harsh words about a fellow writer (even if such words echo the feelings of much of the readership of the book). Are these two TF writers one and the same? Is Chris Sarracini the Clark Kent to Brad Mick´s Superman? Is this a fact? Maybe. Is this fiction? Perhaps. Is this a rumor? Definately. Feel free to debate this topic on´s Energon Pub.

Unexpected Character in G1 Ongoing Series?

For the first time in in over a decade, fans will be treated to a Generation One ongoing comic series. Writer Brad Mick wants to use a character from the Japanese series, Masterforce, in the book. The Destron leader (previously) known as Overlord. Fans already know that the Destron´s PVC figure was released stateside as Gigatron. Brad plans on using the character, but what name will it go by? What part will he play? How will his "master" partners fit into DW continuity? Is this even true? Fact or Fiction? We´ll know soon enough.

Armada/Energon Comic Rumors from Simon Furman

The following was supposedly from the mouth of Simon Furman, as with all news like this, it can´t be confirmed as fact. So, like everything else on the Prof. Smooth Rumor Page, things could change.

For those wondering if Armada will end with issue 18, the answer is no. Sort of. As of issue 19, the Armada comic will be the Energon comic. It´ll retain the same numbering system, but will have a new title. Perhaps this will prevent Dreamwave from giving us 7 different covers for the premiere issue...

Unicron himself may not appear in the Armada comic, but will instead debut after the title becomes Energon. If true, this contridicts everything we´ve previously believed.

The Decepticons appearing in the Armada "World Collide" story are NOT from the Dreamwave G1 continuity (continuity fans let out a collective groan). Rather, they´re from an alternate reality. This will explain why Galvatron looks like a cross between his G1 comic and toy appearance.

The new TF character, The Fallen, in the new War Within mini-series will be a completely new character. His story is that he´s a first-generation transformer who was excommunicated for some reason.

Fact? Fiction? An alternate reality melding of the two? We shall see, we shall see...

Alternators Rumor

For those of us that´ve been buried under mountains of Alternators news over the last few weeks, sifting through it has been less than easy. Among the hottest topics of debate for these highly anticipated figures is the price. We see Japanese Pre-Orders for the figures at between 45 and 50 USD, while they´re in Target´s computers for 19.99 USD. Why the drastic difference in price? Well, part of it may be that the Takara versions of the figures will feature Die-Cast Construction (guess it´s not a "lost art" after all) while the Hasbro versions will be made entirely of plastic. If the extra weight and durability is that important to you, the Takara versions will be readily available at online retailers.

The Smooth One had the opportunity to speak with Hasbro´s lead designer, Aaron Archer as OTFCC was winding down yesterday. Mr. Archer´s comments involve some spoilers, so you´ve been warned: Energon takes place 10 years after Armada ends. That´s it. Not exactly big news, but it´s a spoiler none-the-less. Continuity fans should be happy, this gives Armada/Energon the Season 2/3 feel or the Season 3/Rebirth feel.
