An interesting little rumour this. Apparently, although the upcoming Galaxy Force TV series is due to be set in an all-new continuity, the actual storyline may be a little familiar, as it's going to be a re-telling of Micron Legend/Armada! Word has it that this is mostly due to the influence of GONZO, who didn't like the way that the last two series worked out......

From a press release, some more information has been provided regarding the next Japanese Transformers series, Galaxy Force
. Of particular interest, is those quote from supervisor Manabu Ono:
"Galaxy Force" as a story, is independent of the past story. The original Transformers tale is the existence of which was not recognized by mankind.
Although the translation isn't 100% clear, this would seem to indicate that Galaxy Force takes place in an alternate universe to the current Micron Legend/Superlink series. This is notable as Hasbro have already indicated that their version of the news series, called 'Cybertron', will
take place in the same continuity as Armada/Energon.
Now onto the character profiles. Please note, these are translations from the original Japanese text.
The Supreme Commander of the Cybertrons who is the first at the scene and fights to the end. To his subordiantes, he is also an extremely warm-hearted leader which they can depend on and also his pliability which they have taken in their opinions positively. Although a weak/cowardice attitude may be seen at times from his subordiantes, even if it is in a difficult situation, he never abandons his companions & always gives his best. Furthermore, there is a rumor in the universe of a Transformer with the name of Convoy other than him exists.
He is sincere & is a vice-commander whose reliance is also thick. he is also a realist who can clearly advocate objections from a clear point of view to make difficult judgements & simultaneously manages the given command exactly when iti is given. At the time of the Earth migration, he proposed disguising himself so not to disturb the Earth governments.
The youngest warrior who is proud of his team & fastest at speeds like the wind. His confidence is superflously raw, and he is unyielding & he is not effective at self-control. Although he respects Galaxy Convoy who is the commander & dreams of the future, he severly dislike the treatment he receives preaching of sermons that he is an inexperienced/immature person.
A veteran fighter with abundant experience. Although as tough as his appearance shows, he excels in the way to survive on the battlefield, his thoughts of peace is stronger than others. He is a owner of a sincere & sturdy chivalry soul, and considers it to be his mission to protect the "weak Earth people with his strength.
Though short in stature, he is proud of his marvelous strength of Team One, a powerful fighting faction warrior. Rather than words, action is respected and he also bravely fights against a formidable opponent. Although he is entrusted in heavy labor in many cases, originally he is not of low intelligence, feels dissatisfaction not to be made the fool.
Operator of a grumbling store. Although he has outstanding analytical capabilities, he does not have the self-confidence and is nervous and a worrier. Though intellectual, his eccentric character manifests by a masochistic dark humor.
Ancient Transformer who has continued to supervise/watch space and time from far ancient times, which is why he is called "Ancient." In order to prevent the crisis of all the universes, he appears before Galaxy Convoy and appeals for the recovery of the planet force. Although both are considered as Cybertron/Autobot, he is without there being a singularity of a family line and being able to meld into a team.
Small Transformers with many mysteries accompanying Vector Prime. They are full of curiousity and enjoy interaction with the children. Their information of Earth is promptly absorbed through the internet.
Enemy number one of the universe, the great destructive emperor of the Destrons who is feared. His is the ultimate egoist and the existenc of those other than himself are not even noticed. By the fact of the Planet Force of all the planets are obtained, one is evolved into the perfect existence like God, creating new universe by right. He is a triple changer who has the ability to change into car mode and jet mode.
Although he participates as the faithful arm of Master Megatron, he is anambitions individual whose vigilant eye targets the seat of the great emperor. He excels in both martial/military arts & resources & speed especially in vehicle mode is proud at the top class even in all Transformers. Transformation is a future type fighter plane.
The meal of three times compared to his punk exisitence who likes to fight. He is moved by the command of Master Megatron and Starscream. Although his abilities are immature, his excessive raw being and agressive desire heightens the morale of the whole Destron army. Transformation is an Earth type fighter plane.
A proud 14 year old boy who is proficient in repairs and reconstruction of mechanisms. Under the influence of his father who was a racer, motorcrossing has become his hobby. He is vigorous and a cheerful character, but insecret, he worries about the comparison with the excellent records of his older brother and has thoughts of wanting to be accepted/recognized by his father is strongly above necessity.
He is the 11 year younger brother of Kobe. He loves to watch "B" movies of Sci-Fi, Kung Fu and crime, and imitates them well. Although his wild way of thinking is shocking, it invites humor, which occasionally has even saved him in time of crisis. His communication with the Microns is possible without intentionally knowing why.
This 14 year old city girl is taken to the country by her parents who has a taste for the outdoors. Although it is a harsh place, she stubbonly continues her city lifestyle, she cannot adhere to phenomenon that much, but her different sense of values can be accepted.

Man what a crazy news day it has been today. Thanks to our friends over at Fan2Fan, we now have some new Transformers: Superlink (Energon) clips for you to view!
TRANSFORMERS: SUPERLINK (ENERGON)
EPISODE NO. 42: "Sinking! Miranda II"
Planet Cybertron is blanketed by the Destron's energon Gas. This means the whole planet is been undergoing the occupation of the Destron's. Convoy who is on the Miranda II above the atmosphere has no room to manuever, Kicker & the Omnicons who are not affected by the energon, plans to infiltrate inside the planet to build a work unit. On the otherhand, Galvatron who occupies the control room, with the suggestion of Six Shot, begins to move the whole planet of Cybertron. It is uncertain what will happen which existed previously ...
Sixshot discovered and reported to Galvatron that he is able to channel the Super Energon and move the planet itself, Galvatron commanded to initiate the thrusters and intend to move Cybertron to the star system where Alpha-Q created, intending to destroy each and every planet still existing there. Heeding his command, Sixshot activated the planet thrusters, the underground resistance led by Wingsaber, Rad and Dr. Jones, even everyone on Miranda II orbiting Cybertron, were surprised when the planet started to move...
[not in clip: detecting Miranda II in the orbit, Sixshot fired a shot from the energon tower, hoping to destroyGrand Convoy and avenge his brother. Furious, Galvatron knocked him off and reprimanded him that he will tell Sixshot what to do, he controls his every action, no excuse for taking his own initiative.]
With the location of Miranda II detected, Galvatron led the rest of the Decepticons (except Sixshot) on an full scale assault. The Autobots. preparing the attack, actually was planning to use this as a chance to insert a party to the surface, consists of Kicker and the Omnicons, who were unaffected by the polluted energon covering the planet.
Inspite of Galvatron's punishment and warning about taking action without approval from Galvatron, Sixshot still fired on the ship, hoping to hit Grand Convoy. The shot damaged the ship and caused it to decent into the dangerous energon cloud, the Autobots, not shielded from thiskind of energon, were quickly overloaded, knowing the ship is as good as gone, Galvatron and the Decepticons leave the battle in order not to be caught in the explosion, but Galvatron asked Grand Convoy to survived the crash so he can finish him off himself. With the Decepticons gone, Grand Convoy ordered the rest to abandon ship.
Overdrive stayed on the ship, trying to find a spot on the surface without any Decepticons in order to let Kicker and the Omnicons drop in safely. Grand Convoy stayed with him, Overdrive found the spot and gave the signal to the drop party, who immediately plunged towards the surface on Cybertron. With their objective met, Grand Convoy asked to give full power to the thrusters, hoping to bring Miranda II out of the energon clouds and into space, however badly damaged, the ship was unable to makeit back into space, as the ship started to plunge Convoy and Overdrive.
As the Decepticons returned to their base, Galvatron did not showed mercy for Sixshot's insurbordination, as he bashed Sixshot around (while Snowstorm and Irontread watched gleefully), Sixshot rebuked that Galvatron still needs his intelligence to work on the system, and Galvatron will begged for his help later if he continues to mistreat him now, although Sixshot never get to finish his "threat", in mid sentence, Galvatron punched him right in the face!!
Meanwhile, even Miranda II crashed on the surface of Cybertron, it did not explode, Kicker, taking this as a sign of hope, intends to use it as a symbol for the rest of the Autobot forces on Cybertron to gather.
Go! Go! Omnicons!
