What a ****ty title... and they are doing it for the money. Shame if Pat Lee catches cancer, I'd be soooo gutted...

It's not that bad, Quicke. You should see what they called the first G1 series.

"Transformers: Prime Directive"

Now THAT'S wierd.

At least this title makes sense...

Hey, QS, look, they made it cheaper than it was supposed to be.

Yeh, becuase no-one would have bought it otherwise... I've only heard it called Prime directive [which does make some sort of sense - in Star Trek the Prime Directive is not to infect other populations... it means a kind of golden rule - the Autobots' Prime Directive could be to protect humans, which fits...] at WarWithOutEnd, and it appears nowhere on the actual comics, which means it can't be an official name... it might be mentioned in the TPB though, which puts it in the same kind of category as, say, Mutant Rising - ot's just a handy moniker for the series...

If it's on the TPB it's not really more of a title than, say "All Fall Down" is for US #69-74... To be technical, it's the publisher's box in the bottom of the inside cover that defines the name of the series, not what a later publication says... it's not like any other Transformers media is called Generation 1...

That picture of fireflight looks absolutely incredible.
Is there any chance of someone like Impactor getting a place in the book, as 425 characters is alot to fill.

Highly unlikely... the designs [and, IIRC, the names] of the likes of Impactor, Rack 'n' Ruin, Xaaron, Flame etc. are owned by Marvel, not Hasbro - and DW's license only covers the Hasbro owned characters. Marvel refused to allow its character profiles to be used in the profiles series [meaning the profiles have all been written from scratch, and will most likely diferentiate from the original comic/cartoon counterparts to some extent] so it's unlikely that they will allow character models to be adapted..

Shame, so when you say Hasbro owned characters does that mean everyone who had a toy?

Yeh... though this is where it gets a bit tricky. From what I've heard, Hasbro owns the likenesses of the figures, and therefore their character models as used in the comics or on the TV show... but I think who owns the tech-specs is a bit trickier... I'm pretty sure for the first few years they were written by marvel, who may own them...
