Cybertrong got pulled into Earth's orbit in G1 Season 1.

God, I was pay anything to see Geoff Darrow do a wall-size drawing of Optimus Prime or Megatron. That would blow the new movie designs out of the water.

Oh, I hate the answer to #20. That's his biggest problem: He disregards the material. On the other hand, I love the answer. It confirms everything I've said about his writing.

I think he has done a good job with his IDW stint. The books are very enjoyable, the character choices are interesting, and the overall direction seems to be going in a good direction.

That was an interesting read. I really want to see what he's done in the Galvatron spotlight.

That 'porn' comment was pretty funny. Though I'm sure that if he wrote some pr0ns, they'd have some of the most incredibly storylines ever.

As always, another great interview where he answers the questions honestly and cleverly without giving any important details away.

I never knew he wrote stuff or Wallace and Gromit! That makes me like him all the more.

About Cyberton's location: remember the one he mentions is specific to IDW continuity.

In the original Marvel mini-series it was located in the Alpha Centauri system. And god-knows-where in the Cartoon.

It may have been the same place, unofficially, in the cartoon.
