wow,so many errors in so many bios....
shockwave???!??!??what,we are japanise now?
and i dont recall any autbots in the tf universe.....strange....

really though,the storys are nice but they could have written the older ones as well.and how hard is it to work with ms word for the bios?

as for my mistakes,well,this is a massage board...i'm allowed.... :P

EDIT: they also added the "missing" bios(like landmine and omega supreme and bulkhead and cliffjumper or mirage and shockblast) so i guess they desereve a thumb up.

And, equally as importantly, what does that mean the Energon version of SL Swindle will be called?

Blight.

Things other people have pointed out:

Grimlock/Swoop:
Quote:
Primitive in thought and simple in speech, what GRIMLOCK and SWOOP lack in intelligence they make up for in strength.
Do they combine their intelligence or why do they have a "7" in that field?

Galvatron:
Quote:
Having undergone an intense reformatting
If that's the case, why are his stats identical to those of Megatron, and why does he still look like Megatron, only in different colors?

Omega Sentinel:
Quote:
He is commander of the Guardians
And yet he has an even lower rank than Ironhide (!) and the Omnicons (!).

Scattorshot:
Quote:
SCATTORSHOT is a powerful and cunning DECEPTICON warrior.
And yet he only has a "4" in intelligence.

Storm Jet:
Quote:
He is a precision marksman
And yet the toy doesn't come with any sort of weapon.

And then there's the aforementioned name oddities issue... "Scorpanok", "Shockwave" (!) and "Sharticon" in Sharkticon's bio, and Wing Saber being referred to as "Superion Maximus" in his own bio. There might be a "Scorpinok" in there as well, though I couldn't find it.

Also note that some of the bios have all TRADEMARKED NAMES in capital letters, while others don't.

A lot of the autobot repaints seem to be relatives of their respective molds . . .

Question: have their been any families divided by the war in any of the series?

If my understanding is correct, in Micron Legend, Hot Rod and Rampage were specifically referred to as brothers.

Didn't carry across to Hotshot and Wheeljack though - I think Armada just had them as friends.

I feel like I'm missing an obvious one, though...

Cool.

Yeah, I feel like that should have happened by now, too. The only thing that comes to mind that's close to that would be the RID Prime/Magnus feud over the matrix.

Not only that, why does the bio say he was reformatted by Unicron, when in the cartoon, he got his nifty new colors from
SPOILER! (select to read)
a dive in the Super Energon?


Unless that's something they're gonna change in the dub?

The Tech Specs don`t follow the cartoon, but some of them follow the comic continuity.

ummm just a weird thing
On the main energon site, there is a bio for optimus primal, and also has his own bio that says he has been summoned again, AFTER sacrifising himself to become part of the maxtrix.

does this mean that in some weird way, even though energon/armarda are susposed to be a alternate universe, do the events occur after beast machines, but the alternate reality is war instead of peace?

(which is the way beast machines end, with peace!)

As explained in the other thread, that Bio is for UNIVERSE Optimus Primal, not ENERGON.

It also says that Overcast is Jetfire's brother. However Overcast is the Hasbro equivalent of Skyfire Sonic - an upgraded version of Jetfire.

Remember that the individual Terrorcons have their own bio's on that site. Then bear in mind their cartoon incarnations. Little similarity, I'd wager.

However, as Darth Shrapnel has already said, the biographies seem more aimed towards the comic continuity.

http://previews.diamondcomics.com/de...s=126&ai=14951

Energon MTMTE - as written by El Furmo. One would anticipate the online profiles to be similar to what appears within here.

Question question

1st why there are cousin, brother while all the bot come from the Matrix?

2nd Landquake is a pacifist and Landmine a strong warrior? :-)

These Bios look a bit strange ... Galvatron reformatted? I think that there are so many repaint that the Bio section must explain in some way, whithout any care for cartoon or comics continuity ...

Their Bios doesn't look like the bios of a group of rocket scientist .... a group of animal with a "quote"

One would presume that "your" username was "stolen" by this person: http://tfarchive.com/community/membe...fo&userid=5277

Something that could have been avoided had you registered it yourself. As such, it was never yours to begin with.

"Scattorshot" has been renamed into "Six Shot"...

But who's gonna be Scattorshot now?

Oh, and Wing Saber has his own name now:
