    Seriously, we’ve had such a tease of Onyx and the other Primes the hype has built up perfectly, now we finally get to see him appear for real! This will be his first appearence in TF fiction that isn’t a flashback or a legend in an old book. He’s gonna be here for real.

    Goddammit, is IDW really going to specifically make Beast Wars the villain? What is this, a Geewunner hatefic? "Optimus and "The Tape Guy" are gonna beat up the weird dumb animal ones", the only it's missing is an out-of-character Arcee inexplicably fawning over Optimus, and this would be an exemplary bad hatefic.

    Maybe in the rest of the book? These three pages are a flashback. In modern times, Caminus is isolated, energy deprived, and has no starships. Not to mention that Praesidia Magna is Pyra Magna's predecessor, and was shown to have been killed a long time ago.

    Only Onyx Prime is an Aligned character. Who just so happens to fit in perfectly with the Beast crowd.

    I really, really doubt that's the intention. It's only natural that Onyx's minions would be beasts, and it's also only natural they'd put in some familiar characters in there.

    Nonsense. I'm sure that what happened was someone from Hasbro asked them if since Primal won the last fan poll, and was getting a new leader class toy, could they do something with him? At which point IDW responded with
    "Mwahahahaha, yes I'm sure we can do something with him, just like we did Predaking! Ahahahaha!"

    Besides not like it's the first time they've utterly disregarded a characters previous versions and moral alignments in favor of making them an antagonist.

    Please note tho that I will be pissed if that's all they do with Primal. Maybe it'll turn out to be one of his repaints?
