Hasbro have answered more fan questions through the ancient and wise Transformer Vector Prime. Here's whats new:

Q: Is Optimus Prime older or younger than you?

A: Optimus Prime is much younger than I am . He is the current leader of the Autobots. I was a Transformers leader back when Cybertron was first created.

Q: Will Alternator Optimus Prime previewed at BotCon be made available to the public and will there be a Megatron Alternator?

A: Yes, Alternators Optimus Prime will be part of our Spring/Summer 2006 line. We do not currently have plans for a Megatron.

Q: Is Snarl an Autobot or a Decepticon?

A: Snarl is an Autobot. He was listed on the Transformers web site incorrectly for a few days.

Q: Who is Primus?

A: You might occasionally hear the Autobots mention “Primus.” Primus is one of the first two Transformers, and is Unicron’s total opposite and brother. Primus is the ultimate force of good in the universe just as Unicron is the ultimate evil.

Q: Who was Unicron?

A: Unicron was an Evil Transformer that is the size of a planet who constantly threatens the Transformers universe. He has been destroyed several times, but always seems to come back. No one knows how.

Q: Do you like Hot Shot?

A: Yes, Hot Shot is a good warrior

UK high street discount retailer Home Bargains have yet again come to the rescue of UK Transfans by stocking hard to get and unreleased in the UK Tranformers at bargain basement prices! Damotron Prime and KNOOK of the Energon Pub have both reported finding Energon Ironhide(original version) and Jetfire for £6.99 each!

Jetfire was inexplicably left out of the first waves of Energon figures in the UK and has not yet (nor is he likely to) see a UK release. Home Bargains have sold US overstocks in the UK at low prices in the past including Energon Sharkticon, Universe Battle in a Box Ultra Magnus Vs Treadshot, Universe Micromaster Constructicons and many more. It's likely the same of these figures.

Toy News International has put up the official press release by IDW concerning the succes of the upcoming Transformers #0.

Because of comicbook retailers pre-ordering, the preview issue of IDW's version of Transformers is gearing up to be top-seller, even before a single copy has hit the stands.

The following is a direct quote from the article, which also features a #0 Cover Check list.

San Diego, Calif. (October 5, 2005) -- A new era for Transformers is set to begin this October, with the release of IDW Publishing’s all-new THE Transformers #0 issue! And that debut issue, which hits comic shops across the land on October 19, brings with it more than just a new take on the “Robots in Disguise.” THE Transformers #0 has also already become the top-selling title in IDW’s 5-year history. Transformers is under license from the Hasbro Properties Group, the intellectual property development arm of Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS).

Initial orders for The Transformers #0 are right at the 100,000 copies mark, a publishing milestone for IDW.

“A new Transformers series from a new publisher is a bit of an unknown, so I’d like to thank comic retailers for the faith they’ve shown in us and the new book,” said IDW’s Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall. “Retailers and the fan community have been amazingly supportive of our early efforts, and come October 19, they’ll be rewarded for their support in the form of an exciting new generation of Transformers comics.”

THE Transformers #0, written by fan-favorite Transformers writer Simon Furman and featuring the stylized renderings of artist E.J. Su, presents the “Prelude to Infiltration,” a 16-page set-up for the first 6part arc. The book also features interviews with the creators and a look at artist Su’s approach to the title. This $0.99 premiere issue will then be followed by the monthly title, beginning with THE Transformers #1, a 32-page, $2.99 comic launching in January 2006.

Retailers who attended the recent Diamond Retailer Summit in Baltimore were treated to the first published copies of the #0 issue, which was further noted by its special Summit-only cover. And the faithful Transformers fans who attended BotCon 2005 in Frisco, Texas, likewise had the chance to check out the special issue. Soon, fans the world over will be able to do the same. And thanks to the support from comics retailers and fans alike, they’ll be able to do so every month for years to come.

The Transformers #0 debuts October 19, 2005 at the special introductory price of $0.99. Issue #0 will feature two covers by artist E.J. Su, and variant covers from James Raiz and Milx, all shipped in equal quantities. In addition, there will be two special wraparound incentive covers, one by Ed McGuiness and one for the BotCon convention by Hasbro’s design team. Finally, E.J. Su provided special covers for both Diamond Retail Summits (both by E.J. Su).

The Transformers #1 will launch in January 2006 with a cover price of $2.99.
