    Got this from Seibertron. What do you guys think? Me, I'm ready to see them show up. Very interested in their tale.

    ART OF THE 13
    ---------------------------------------
    All 13 are "prototypes"
    13 are representative of all types of Transformers
    Showed art of Megatronus who becomes the Fallen
    Alpha Trion (mentioned Covenant of Primus)
    Liege Maximo (plays a key role in the story of the 13)
    Nexus Prime (need to pick up Exiles to learn more about him)
    Vector Prime (Watcher like character)
    Soulus Prime (sp? - female, looks awesome, very different than other female Transformers)

    I don't believe they said they are representative of ALL types, but they did set the way for what would come. There is a beast-former, a combiner (Nexus Prime), a feminine shell (Solus Prime, but she's not actually a WOMAN, they don't have genders it seems, yeah confusing), and some other stuff.

    No pictures were allowed to be taken. Liege Maximo is not a "Judas" but he was set to be the "Ultimate counterforce to good", because evil is a necessity, it was Megatronus Prime that betrayed them. They said nothing of Dai Atlas. Since they're multiversal singularities, all "the Fallens" are the same one (same with Alpha Trions and the rest), it's a weird and complex thing.

    I hope these guys all get toys that large and justify them as being the original 13. It'd be the best shelf ever.

    In the Marvel continuity Liege Maximo implied to have created Megatron and is the direct ancestor of the Decepticons.

    The Live Action Movie continuity the Fallen has taken this role as the founder of the Decepticons.

    Transtech continuity also had the Liege Maximo said in passing to be involved with a scandal within High Council.

    I'd say Liege Maximo is Lawful Evil while the Fallen is Chaotic Evil.

    I basically see it as: the sons of Liege Maximo eventually gather and form a group and are known as "Decepticons", the group and logo are inspired by the Fallen Prime (Megatronus).

    Though I'm afraid I know nothing of the TransTechs.

    TransTechs never factionalized as Optimus and Megatron are allies. Its sort of like Exodus that Optimus and Megatron led a revolution but never separated into Autobots and Decepticons.

    No name was given, that is still to be revealed.

    Here's who we do know:
    1. Prima - The first Cybertronian, the first of the Primes; sometimes the ancestor of Optimus.
    2. Vector Prime - Autobot symbol is inspired from his head/face.
    3. Alpha Trion - Wrote the "Covenant of Primus", very influential to many Cybertronians. MAYBE is the first of the data/information collectors.
    4. Liege Maximo - Archetype for Decepticons (the large, violent, angry, "evil"), he is their ancestor. "Evil" in a sense, but it is a necessary evil, as evil is necessary.
    5. Nexus Prime - First combiner, so combiner "technology" is not just some new "technology", but is as old as their own race.
    6. Solus Prime - First feminine form (there are no actual genders, just "shapes"), probably also the first of weapons specialists.
    7. Megatronus (the Fallen) Prime - The first of Unicron's heralds, the Decepticon symbol is inspired from his head/face, and the Decepticon notion of "rising up/against" could also be inspired by his actions.

    Though the symbols seem to exist in that universe (albeit in their own style).

    Pretty much. Liege Maximo wants a stellar empire, Megatronus wants to help Unicron in his goal of destroying everything.

    Also, Archer said the multiverse concept no longer applies to new fiction because the aligned continuity is separate. No wonder they dropped, after how confused fans were, who weren't into that level of sci-fi.

    What about Logos Prime? (He's actually Galaxy Force Soundblaster)

    Soundblaster (Cybertron) - Transformers Wiki I'm suprised they haven't mentioned him

    Someone asked, they said they're still developing the thirteen, but they don't really look into Takara's stuff as much.

    Does that mean that if Unicron or The Fallen/Megatronus Prime were to show up in TFP, they would not have any connection to previous versions of the characters?
