Hello all, long time lurker, new member. As I stated under another forum here, I'm recently married and a new home owner and as such have promised my wife that I'd limit my toy collecting as much as possible. For Transformers I've decided to limit my figures to things related to Primes/The Matrix. This means I collect figures that I like of Optimus Prime, Optimus Primal, Rodimus/Hot Rod, and the lonely Vector Prime. So couple of questions: 1) Since I didn't follow any of the new cartoons (I was really turned off by how childish Armada was, but happy that there was a new toon for kids) is Primus a carrier of The Matrix? The figure looks awesome but if he was never a carrier of the Matrix I'll feel ok with not buying him. 2) Not really dealing with toys, but in all the TF continuities, how many primes do we know by name? Through "The War Within" we're told that Sentinel Prime was the predecessor to Optimus, so that's the only one I know of that we've never actually seen. So just to list the ones I know then: Optimus Prime, Rodimus Prime, Vector Prime, Optimus Primal (both US and Japanese versions). Thanks.
