    Found this on IDW's site. If it's old news, my apologies. I couldn't recall seeing this before, and I didn't see a thread about it.

    I thought the "Spotlight" series was supposed to highlight TF's who've had less exposure in the main story...

    There hasn't been a spotlight in a while. What was the last one? What are the next few due out?

    Not Really, but it does normally introduce characters who havn't been seen in the main story so far. All the spotlight stories affect the main story and feed into it. The Prime spotlight is only really doing it the other way around, the main story is feeding the Spotlight, which will then feed the main story again.

    There was a couple of month gap between Ultra Magnus' Spotlight in January and the last spot light, which was Soundwave, in March. The next spotlight is Kup (out in the next couple of weeks). After that is Galvatron in July and then Optimus Prime in August/ September (September according to the Forum Post, August according to IDW's TF Spotlight Page).

    Man, I love IDWs spotlights. One-shot stories are great reads. The world needs more of them. Furthermore, one-shot stories that tie into the main continuity in interesting ways are even better reads. The world needs more of them too. :) 

    I also LOVE IDWs Prime design. I know it's 90% the same design he's always been, but the 10% that's different is perfect.

    By the time his Spotlight is released, Optimus Prime would have had little exposure in the main comic in the previous few months.

    Just wondering how the idw spotlights go? Is it just that single character in a certain situation? I know it sounds like a dumb question but please bare my stupidity.

    Pretty much Pride. Most of them detail the events of said character prior to coming to Earth. I kinda hoped the spotlights would be saved for the second tier characters rather than the big guns, but if Megs can get a full mini series, then Op at least deserves his own spotlight.

    It's basically the title character plus a few other supporting characters (like, the Shockwave Spotlight also features the Dinobots as his opponents, for example) in a specific situation that ties into the main series story one way or another.
