    NOTES


    Page 1

    The opening structure is reminiscent of the one in Omega Supreme's and Sentinel Prime's chapters.
    But this time our story takes a different direction: Magnus' chapter will be heavily action oriented, with lots of guests, enemies, battles and super-complex evil schemes.

    All the mechs featured here are nameless 'bots.

    The name of the Anamnesis Palace is a tribute to Simon Furman's sophisticated style, with his mature and complex approach to the Transformers.

    The explosion after the inner monologue is a nod to Magnus' infamous quote from "Fight Or Flee": "I've never seen anything this beautiful in the entire galaxy. All right, give me the bomb."


    Page 2

    Dead-End and Wildrider are two of the well known Stunticons. Their color are based on the respective G1 toys. Their models are based on their appearances in The War Within, with a particular regard for Joe Ng's work on the The Age Of Wrath volume.
    We're not finished with the Stunticons, yet. And their group is larger than we can imagine, in this era.

    "My name is MAGNUS" is a tribute to the intro sequences in IDW's Spotlight books.

    It's crossover time! Soundwave entered the University Of Addaveni in the pages of his own chapter.

    For the second time, we mention Soundwave's always-forgotten mind reading abilities. See his SoD Profile for more details and alt modes.

    Penta-energon is a substance that can induce drugs-like effects on a Cybertronian. Say no to penta-energon or you'll become like a mindless Stunticon!
    Thanks to Zac for the original concept.

    Magnus' model is based on War Within Optimus Prime, with some references to G1 Ultra Magnus toy (of course!).


    Page 3

    Ultra Impactor is our version of the classic character created by Simon Furman for the G1 Marvel UK Saga. He already appeared in SoD 01: Omega Supreme.
    His bodystructure technology is well known to Shockwave: why is that? Only time (and more sub-plots) will tell.

    There are plans to make this Ultra Impactor fit with the Impactor character featured in "Last Stands Of The Wreckers", epic official comic by the 'maestri' Nick Roche and James Roberts.

    By now, everybody should know what the Liberation Missions are. If you don't, please read SoD 07: Sentinel Prime.

    When Kup goes Indiana Jones, he is often called 'Professor Kup' by his own partners. But he's not too fond of the nickname.

    'Professor Kup' created by Davide 'Red Alert' of Autorobot.it.

    Coming soon: more about Professor Kup in SoD 03: Jetfire/Grimlock and in his own Short Story, "Remembrances", by Tomoko :iconsakuranez:

    Because of his old age, Ultra Impactor experienced first-hand the reign of Nova Prime, and he was probably around during the upcoming Paradise Lost story, by Ibai :iconcanalus:


    Page 4

    This Security Team, featuring Springer and young Magnus, is our first tribute to the immortal Wreckers.

    We planned to use G2 characters for this team after the first news about Last Stands Of The Wreckers.

    Ironfist is our first tribute to Nick Roche's work on the miniseries Last Stands Of The Wreckers.

    More G2 characters are coming in our saga. For the models art and the names, see Peter's gallery in the Profiles thread.

    What lurking segret does the Cybertnet hide? The answer will come in other SoD chapters, featuring such characters as Trannis, Ratbat, Shockwave/Soundwave.

    The Boot-Camp for the new Security Agents is a nod to Animated's Autoboot Camp.

    Magnus mentions an Energon-Drainer, in a crossover with SoD 04: Ratbat, a story in which Springer plays a major role.

    Springer IS a triplechanger.

    Medicdroids first appeared in G1 Sunbow cartoon (Season 1).


    Page 5

    Buzzsaw is a Repaint of cybertronian Laserbeak, as seen in The War Within vol. 1

    Runafoul is a new Battlecharger, alreay featured in SoD: Shockwave/Soundwave.

    Battlecharger alt mode designed by Peter (based on the robot mode seen in The War Within vol. 1).

    Ruckus of the Triggercons is based on the design seen in Stormbringer.


    Page 6

    Motormaster, as he was seen in The War Within vol 1.

    How does Magnus' last sentence end? The answer in the upcoming Act II. Stay tuned.

    Poor Magnus - outsmarted by Soundwave. Streetwise seems like a bit of an aft-kisser. Nice cameos by Wheeljack and Trailbreaker.

    From Teletraan-2 not-so-secret files, here are our behind-the-scenes notes.

    Page 7.

    The secrets of (Ratbat) will be featured in his own chapter.


    Page 8.

    More about the Prtnovio Crystals in SoD: Shockwave/Soundwave and SoD: Jetfire/Grimlock (coming soon).

    Special guests: Red Alert and Streetwise.

    Just like Far From Home, S.o.D. Magnus is a tribute to Spotlight: Nightbeat, as this page should show (well, minus the horror component).


    Page 9

    Special guests: Trailbreaker, Wheeljack, Streetwise and Red Alert.

    Is Streetwise implicitly accusing/suspecting Magnus of fabricating false memories just to prove a point?
    Maybe. Or maybe he is just being radically scrupulous, since his original Profile suggests that he believes in doing things by the book.

    The Mechannibals appeared, albeit briefly, in SoD: Sentinel Prime and in Remembrances.

    Soundwave and the Talarzonians appeared in the previous pages of this same chapter.

    "Funky aliens" is a not to Transformers: The Movie (1986).

    Soundwave has become Magnus' secret nemesis: more about this in Act IV, when Soundwave's master plan comes to fruition.

    It's crossover time! If you've already read SoD: Omega Supreme, then you know what's goint to happen inside the Pagoda.
    But what about the events that transpired outside? Why no one was able to prevent the tragic outcome?
    The next act of SoD: Magnus will answer this question.

    A spoiler can be seen in cover C, "Supreme Battle2, by William Alan Reyes and Sean Tourangeau.

    Also included, Cover D, "Shadows Of Conspiracy", by SYD .
