    There are a few possibilities for what you're talking about. There was the Summer Special in 2004, which was a 48 page book with four stories...a G1 story, a BW story, a RID story, and an Energon story. The Energon and G1 stories were side stories to the main books, while BW and RID were samples for fans to vote on which series they'd like to see made into a miniseries. BW won handily, but of course DW went under before it came out.

    There was also something similar planned for late 2004/early 2005 that never came out. I can't recall whether it was referred to by DW as an annual, but it might have been.

    You might also be referring to the More Than Meets The Eye profile books, which are amazing and absolutely worth tracking down. The trades of them were some of the last things DW put out.

    I think they were calling that the Datatracks Annual or something like that. But yeah, DW went under before they released it.

    They were going to include bio's on overlord, sunstorm, bumper, nemisis prime, battle beasts and others that didn't get in more then meets the eye books.

    A shame it never got released.

    Overlord and Nemesis Prime

    Overlord was a japanese character and nemesis prime started as a repaint of optimus prime in TF armada and was inspired by Scourge from RID.
