When it was first rumored that Thundercracker was nothing more than an upgraded Starscream, fan reaction was almost entirely negative. However, we now know WHY this near blasphemous atrocity is going to happen. Originally, they were supposed to be two separate characters, however a problem caused that to be changed. An animation error. Because of an animation error from Aeon, Starscream (one of the most beloved characters in Transformers history) will become Thundercracker (otherwise known as “The blue guy who looks like Starscream”). This isn’t a case of drawing an Autobot symbol where there’s supposed to be a Decepticon insignia. This isn’t drawing Optimus Prime’s super mode when Jet Convoy should be on the screen! (Although both of these were just the mark of plain laziness!) This is an atrocity! And you know what the worst part is? There is absolutely NOTHING that can be done about it. Because of the error, the entire show had to be re-written to make it appear that Starscream becomes Thundercracker. Of course, this won’t be the first time to dialogue doesn’t fit what’s happening on the screen. Vent your rage at The Energon Pub !

As many of you know, Hasbro recently aquired a copyright for "Transformers: Energon." But, what IS Transformers: Energon? Is it a new series? If so, a series of what? Comics? TV Series? Toyline? Video game? We just don´t know, and speculation is (to borrow a phrase) Runnin´ Wild. We hope to have some more information on this mysterious topic in the very near future, so stay tuned to and The Professor Smooth Rumor Page!

Rumors have it that the first DVD to be released by Metrodome in the U.K. is the extremely hard to find "Scramble City" episode. It is said to be released in Japanese with English Subtitles ONLY, under the "Transformers: Takara" series. Also, the Transformers Season 2 Part 1 UK Region 2 boxset has yet to be ´officialy´ announced but will be released later this year by Metrodome under the T.V. Loonland Banner. T.V. Loonland aquired the rights to Transformers in the UK from Sunbow, causing Maverick Entertainment to lose out.

Orson, a Hasbro designer who posts at the message boards for Tfw2005, has revealed some interesting tidbits.

  • For all those waiting, Takara is planning to release Bluestreak in his blue Diaclone colors.

  • Episodes 43 or 44 of Armada may feature an Armada Prime in RID Scourge colors...

  • The Sixshot-colored Powerlinx Demolishor, announced at Hasbro´s Press Event has been cancelled.

  • Skywarp´s mini-con finally has a name. Thunderclash.

There are also rumors of Armada Thrust being repainted into a Jhiaxus, and an Armada Dirge, possibly being a repainted Armada Skywarp. I say rumors because Hasbro has not announced them, but may consider them.

According to Raymond T: "It has just come to my attention on the General Topics Board (at the Energon Pub) by Skylynx that Maverick (in the U.K.) has lost the rights to the original/Sunbow Transformers series for distribution. These rights have been past on to TV Loon Land. I just looked up their site! It appears they now have the rights of:

  • 98 Transformers episodes
  • The Transormers: The Movie
  • 52 Transformers: Generation 2 episodes
  • 115 Transformers Takara episodes (Japan Headmasters)

"I didn´t see anything that would indicate that they´ll release Transformers anytime soon, but I think we´ve just found out why there has been no word on the release of the TF Season 2 Maverick box. Since there is no mention of Armada, I think the Armada DVD will still be released by Maverick on March 31st (previously March 24th)."

Rumor has it that the much-delayed Brave Maximus (Fortress Maximus in RiD) will finally get at least a limited release as part of the Transformers: Universe line. Fueling this rumor (again) is one of my credible sources has told me of the existance of a recent Fortress Maximus test-shot. Could US fans finally be getting a new Fortress Maximus? One problem after another has prevented the 55cm giant from reaching American store shelves. The upcoming Universe line would definately be the time to do it. Could the wait finally be over? Stay tuned...

A question I keep getting asked is "What exactly are we getting from ´Transformers Universe´? Well, feast your eyes on this fine collection of rumors I´ve collected:

The first wave of ´Universe´ will feature all Beast Wars/Machines molds. The 2nd wave will give us a plethora of G2 molds (most likely with G1 character names). And following that, you´ll probably be seeing some repaints of RiD figures.

There will be a quarterly comic published by 3H. This will combine elements of the BotCon comics such and Primevil Dawn and The Wreckers.

Also, the characters will be the same as their ´in continuity´ counterparts. For example, the upcoming Silverbolt figure WILL be THE Silverbolt from BW/BM.

Remember though, these are just rumors (for now) and could change at any time.
