    Am I the only one who doesn't care about the 500th interview with Furman about an upcoming title anymore? I just buy the title period, I don't need a gazillion different sites interview Furman over and over again.

    I enjoyed the interview. I'm looking forward to some of the character one-shots, specifically Hot Rod and Shockwave, two of my long-time favorites.

    Honestly, it's good to hear Simon so enthusiastic about this gig. As much as I didn't want to see Dreamwave end and as much as I didn't want to forge ahead into a new continuity, I'm enjoying this new story more. I hope it lasts a good long while.

    Nice interview. It's nice to get some teasers for upcoming stories. I wish we had weekly books sometimes. A month between issues seems to take forever sometimes! :D

    that was actually a really good interview. I'm excited for the character 1 shots too.

    I'd love to see Simon's take on Iron Man, i really liked the way he used Iron Man 2020 in Death's Head.
    very curious. Movie adaptation novel perhaps?

    If you've avoided it until now, there's a trade paperback due around September and you'll probably enjoy it more as one block alongside Stormbringer being released / as setup for Escalation in October.

    No you're not the only one. Furman is only part of the TF Universe, not the center.:( 

    CNI: Are they a slave race of the Quintessons, the children of Primus, or something else entirely?

    Simon: No comment.

    Furman is an incredibly huge egotist and it makes me want to vomit.

    and he seems pretty down to Earth in all the interviews I've ever read with him. And one thing I love about him, he's always excited to talk about Transformers.

    Looking forward to Stormbringer even more, if that's possible.

    Ever since I read The Ultimate Guide, and he discredited the cartoon about the Dinobots, I've had a bad taste in my mouth, so to speak.

    well, I had my local comic shop order them 4 weeks ago, and apparently they've STILL not come in :mad  I might end up doing that, though it'd be cheaper to get them here and not pay for shipping..

    Well, you might as well start hating Hasbro too, since they approved the book, right down to the comic book origins of the Dinobots being canon. And you should hate all of us fans that have prefered Simon's take on the Dinos over the years, as that was the single greatest contributing factor to that origin sticking around over the past 21 years.

    You imply Simon is an egotist for using, what you mistakenly seem to assume is "his" Dinobot origin instead of the cartoon's. In fact, the comic book origin of the Dinobots was in place in the US well before Simon ever came onto the UK comics, much less came to write the American Marvel series. All he did was give them two things they lacked in the cartoon: depth and some degree of intelligence.

    Nah, that was Donald Glut. Who didn't bother to read the writing guide he would've been issued with by the show producers, and which includes the tech spec line about Snarl missing Cybertron.

    The cartoon Dinobots were just Don's "dinosaurs are cold-blooded so the robots that transform into them must be dumb" acid trip. They were never intended even to have been built on Earth.

    You should look at it this way. What one writer writes is just one take on the big picture which is Transformers. From the very beginning there has been a difference in continuities, trying to merge them is crazy, finding common threads are much more possible.

    In the G1 cartoon, the Transformers were a slave race of the quintessons(who also in some way helped in their creation), that is canon. What Simon has written in his numerous writings is also obviously canon. I believe the key is to never try to take away from established canon, BUT due to the numerous fictions out there, there can be numerous takes on different characters. I always got a kick out of the fact that the Dinobots were created on Eart in the cartoon but came from Cybertron in the comic. I like having numerous fictions and numerous origins, keeps it fresh!
