    Now that Simon Furman says that he's going to tie up loose ends, what one's are the most important to you to address?

    For me, the obvious and big ones:

    Will Circuit Breaker emerge from her unconscious state?

    Will Rollie Friendly start making films again?

    Will Skids and Donnie Finkleberg repair their friendship?

    What other monuments will the Battlechargers deface?

    In all seriousness, though, what loose ends are important to you?

    I doubt we'll see Circuit Breaker or any of the Marvel characters. I'm looking forward to it regardless.

    Ermm, Nucleon. I think that's about it.
    Mostly, I want him to reference the events of the UK only stuff as well, as I really feel that added weight to the whole.

    Stop making Prowl a whiner!

    The fate of Megatron, Ratchet, Starscream and Shockwave.

    More Hot Rod. He got a lot of screentime in Furman's US run, usually at Prime's side. Wonder if that was going anywhere? Was Furman planning on him using the Matrix against Unicron at some stage in the planning process?

    I'd love to see him meet Galvatron and be told about his becoming Rodimus Prime in the alternate future. Be nice if they struck up a friendship with Galvatron slowly manipulating him and maybe have him become Menasor (Titanium evil Rodimus).

    I'd love to see later G1 characters like Gripper, Kick Off, Overlord and Leozack appear.

    A reconcilation with the Earthforce stories would be nice but highly unlikely.

    I didn't think about that until I read your post. IIRC, didn't Marvel have Circuit Breaker's first appearance be in Secret Wars 2, just so they could lay claim to the character? I seem to remember seeing her in another book just before TF.

    I'd like to see the whole Liege Maximo thing resolved, but since they're ignoring G2...oh well.

    I guess that leaves the Nucleon thing. And did all the other Powermasters merge fully with their Nebulons? How about the Headmasters? Did Buster and Jessie ever get married?
    Was "O" the best man? ) Now that I think about it, is "O" a nickname for "Leo"? Was that who the ROTF character was based on? Not a loose end, just an observation)

    THAT!

    Also after they split Ratchet and Megs, they can throw ole buckehead by the wayside and rename the comic "Dr Ratchet featuring the Transformers".

    I love Ratchet in the old Marvel comics <3

    Did Bomber Bill make it home? Did the Spacehikers get in trouble with their parents? Did the Roadjammers invent the new jamming technology and continue to hunt down Transformers? Did the Mechanic conquer the West Coast?

    I'm kidding. Mostly. :)

    Can't use the Marvel characters, eh?

    Here's the loose end to end all loose ends: Where has Chip Chase been all this time?

    Was he ever in the comic continuity? I don't think he was.

    Did Spike die in the original series? We could catch up with Buster at least.

    Think Spike died in G2 when Fort Max got the ax ;) .

    Which probably means he's still alive for Regen 1,albeit twenty years older.

    Nucleon, the ties between Ratchet and Megatron, the fate of Megatron, the destiny of Hot Rod, the eventual third Decepticon civil war between Bludgeon and Megatron (since this was in G2, I'm not sure where they will go in this one to keep that in synch...)

    What happened to fort max after he took down galvatron?

    What happened with carnivac, did he stay with the autobots, did he go all lone wolf and set off the kill budgeon again?

    What the hell happened to Ultra Magnus? Will galvatron pull himself out of the ice so the two of them can finally have there final show down.

    And all the other stuff people have already listed.

    This whole 'twenty years on' thing bothers me slightly. So much of Furman's best stuff was based off the '86 movie with it's 2005 onwards setting, including alternate Galvatrons etc. Will we get a contemporary modern setting for this new run, or an x-years post movie events setting?

    I'd have preferred just a straight continuation I think.

    Loose ends; I mostly want to see Galvatron; to have a nod to G2; and see the Nucleon story played out as intended (by which I mean don't just reverse it straight away for the sake it; there was clearly meant to be an 'evolution' thing going on which would have lasted long enough to turn many key characters into their Actionmaster forms).

    I just don't understand how loose ends are going to be tied up with the story set TWENTY YEARS after #80. To be honest, that's my biggest concern about this continuation. With such a long time gap, is it a continuation in name only?

    I'm sure Mr F. will not disappoint, but - given that the Marvel Transformers saga is the definitive vision of the franchise for me - I obviously have high hopes and care a great deal!

    I'm hoping the first issue or two will pick up right after #80, then the twenty years later jump.

    I'm guessing it's going to be contemporary modern, and that's the whole reason for the 20 year jump (considering #80 wrapped up in 1991, so #81 will be published just over twenty years later).

    Why is a 20 year time gap considered remotely substantial for characters who are millions of years old?
