    Some quasi-spoilers in there about how Stormbringer turns out (well, I'd view one phrase in particular as a spoiler... it depends on what you're expecting to happen) but a generally good round-up interview with some teasers.

    I am very interested in how he handles Six Shot. And, as a writer myself, I'm bummed as once Six Shot is written by Furman, that will be the "personality" that sticks with him, BECAUSE IT'S THE ONLY PERSONALITY MOST PEOPLE IN THE STATES WILL EVER HAVE.

    Sigh.

    I don't quite "get" his given reason for giving Magnus a new personality. TWW3 was never finished, after all.

    Plus, there's the factoid that, when you get to a certain level of change, why use that character at all?

    Doesn't sound like a new personality -- just making the guy a bit more sure of himself, so that this isn't rehash of "I can't deal with that now" or "[shit, Galvatron's turned up again, I'm going to need to psych myself up for this...]"

    Sounds pretty interesting. I wonder what Simon will do with Sixshot, compared to his Japanese personality (which was pretty good, though he always dipped between ruthless and honourable as the script dictated).

    What? Would you prefer characters with MPD?

    Actually, that wouldn't be too bad...

    I know we've seen that first Shockwave picture before, but it's been bugging me since we saw it for the first time, and I just figured out why. Shockwave's proportions and long, sharp angles make it look like a sort of Teen Titans version of Transformers.

    Teen Transformers.

    Actually, that might be sort of awesome for an Evolution story arc. If it doesn't affect the continuity anyway, why not?

    "Expect Megatron in his Earth mode (yes, we are getting into the whole mass-displacement thing!)"

    Oh god.

    Otherwise it's a bit unfair when all of the Decepticons (fighter jets, tanks, a space shuttle) utterly dwarf the Autobots (cars, the occasional plane)... they've clearly got the tech for Starscream to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with, say, Prowl.

    Presumably it's pushing it to its limits to be used on fitting Megatron into a gun, though.

    I'm glad for one part Simon said when talking about BW AND G1. That made me very happy. :)
