    Link from Comic Book Resources

    Comic Book Resources > CBR News: Zander Cannon talks Top Ten, T-Minus & Transformers

    And copied from the article:

    You’re also working on a Transformers project for IDW. What can you say about that?

    By the time this hits anywhere, I imagine it'll be okay-- I'm writing a Bumblebee miniseries that spins off of a new semi-reboot of the Transformers continuity at IDW. I'm only in the process now of writing a proposal, so I can't say any more.

    Don't worry I figure it'll be shoehorned into the existing IDW continuity.:lol 

    Otherwise, looking forward to what comes of this.

    Unnecessary...very much so. Whatever the case...fans will probably still buy but I'm sure I'll skip this one.

    I interpret the phrase "new semi-reboot" to mean more in with the All Hail Megatron continuity. If so, I am all for a Bumblebee mini.
    If this is yet another reboot I'm done. Seriously.

    Only way I can see this reboot being any good is taking it away from AHM and back to simon's universe.

    By reboot, does that mean they'll be ending this "G1 series" and starting a new continuity?


    A BB spinoff sounds delightful, but I'm more concerned with them finishing what they started.

    Could he mean his story is based off the new semi-reboot which we know as AHM? He made it sound like his story is the spinoff of that, not creating another reboot. Also, it seems he hasn't even told IDW the idea yet.

    I feel that the -ation arcs in some parts were slow, but great stories, there is no need for a reboot.

    Wow, people are reading too much into that.

    Ryall's already said AHM is kind of like a "soft-reboot" for the IDW continuity, phasing out a lot of the story threads that Furman was gonna build on, and going in the (albeit sketchy) AHM direction.

    Yeah, I don't think this is another reboot. It's a spinoff from AHM most likely. And I don't even consider that to be a real reboot, since it's being directly linked to the Furman stories. So, I'm all for a mini focusing on BB.

    Bumblebee mini - yea! As for "reboot" for all we know it could be a movie-verse spin off.
