Seibertron's own Optimus Frimal has reported a very interesting response from Simon Furman on his blog site.

Right now, writing-wise, I’ve just finished up on the outline/overview for the next big story arc, and it’s NOT ‘Revelation.’ Boy I love to tease.

Furman has also revealed more tidbits of information about the Dead Universe, confirming, amongst other things that Nova Prime is Nemesis Prime.

Rest assured, there will be more of a rationale for the name change from Nova to Nemesis. It all centres around what the Dead Universe actually is (or was!). Lots more on that in 08 for sure.

The idea with Headmasters is you pretty much double up on reaction times and so forth. And everything’s heightened, sensory-wise. Guess it just makes for a more effective warrior.

Front Paged and Credited!

I'm guessing another Stormbringer type story whose consequences will be felt in a large way in the -tion books in the near future.

Perhaps something regarding a certain set of Monsterbots and an Autobot Scientist? :shock:

It kind of makes me sad that Nova Prime is now going to be Nemesis Prime. I hate that name, just because it has been used so much lately for just a black Prime repaint. Nova Prime actually has a distinct name for once. Oh well, his character still seems awesome.

I love the idea of a former Prime becoming an evil entity, al la The Fallen.

Sort of. He said that in the main -ation series, after revalation will be Expansion. That will be the big wrap-up to all current plot threads. After about 40 main issues that sounds like a rather appropriate place to cleane house and move forward to me.

Destination? Ruination? Damnation?

So after Devastation and Megatron Origins TPB's, I only need 2 more -tions and 2 4 parters TPB's to round out the story. Nice to know.

So, something Stormbringer/Megatron Origins-esque... but who's the artist? :)

I'd love to see Nick Roche on a four parter. He's quickly become one of my favorite Transformers artists.

It won't be a -tion book, it'll be either a Stormbringer type story that ties into the -tion books, or a stand alone series like Hearts of Steel.

Im hoping for a Stormbringer style story.
