    Please use this thread to submit questions for a Questions and Answers session with IDW Publishing's senior editor Andy Schmidt. Andy is the writer of Transformers Continuum, and is the editor for the Transformers Ongoing series (issue #1 on sale now).

    This thread will be open until next Friday at which time we will close the thread and pick out the best questions to forward to Andy for answering.

    Please remember as always to be civil and follow the general rules of the board. But have fun! Remember, this is a great chance - usually only available at conventions - to put your questions regarding the Transformers comic books direct to the people who make it happen.

    Once again on behalf of the staff of the 2005 Boards I would like to thank Andy for reaching out to us, the fandom, and giving us this rare opportunity to address questions concerning the Transformers comic book series directly to the people who make it happen.

Prowl seemed to be under his comand sorry if im reading that wrong i realy am curious whats happened to him! :)

    Is there any plans to bring back any characters thast have and will be killed off?

    This comic appears to include Megatron, Skywarp, and Thundercracker. Does this have any affect on if Galvatron, Cyclonus, and Scrouge will appear in this comic at one point?

    Will the humans be the main threat, or will there be other threats that play a big part?

    Will we see more original IDW characters being introduced? Will we see characters from other transformers continuities being introduced into this one?

    Any plans to tell more Pre-Earth/Cybertron stories, like the origin of Optimus Prime and the Great War?

    Oh and bring back Minerva!

    Why? Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge already exist in the IDW universe as different characters...

    Since you have republished Dreamwave's Armada/Energon series, will you be letting Furman finish what he started with Energon and move into Cybertron?

    Dear Andy,
    I'm sure you have been asked this many times in person(although in much harsher words than what I will use) but could you please explain why there are so many blatant errors in "The Transformers Continuum: The Definitive Chronology"? Also, Thank you for giving up your time to answer these questions posed to you by the fans, as it is appreciated greatly.

    Andy,

    First, thank you for taking the time to interact and respond to the fans...

    Why did you change everyones faces to look more like the movie verse? Part of enjoying the G1-Verse is relating to those characters. People enjoy the movie-verse because it is new and different. Once you start to meld the two together you loose part of the fan base (my opinion). I do not mind the vehicle upgrades but I honestly cannot stand the new faces. Will you pleace change them back to those they we know and hold dear?

    Thanks

    Can we expect to see Nightbeat's story continue in this series? His death was very out-of-the-blue and awkward, and Simon Furman had said on his blog last year that that part of the story had had to be shortened and that more on it would be forthcoming.

    Questions:
    1) Skeleton Warriors Faces - Design choice? Whim? Explain?

    2) Continuity - What happened?

    3) Spotlights - More of them? Please?

    Thanks for the large amount of communication with "us the fans." Even when we're complaining about stuff, we're always appreciative when our personal dedication/addiction gets taken seriously. (As are most people, really.)

    Simple question I'm sure the answer is probably known to, but will the Movie style continue throughout the series? I really happen to like it.

    And while I somewhat agree with the complaints about the faces, I just want to ask if the faces will be more defined yet still movie style in next issues? The one panel where Rodimus was all "=O!!" it took me a second look to figure out his mouth was open.

    1) Does Hasbro uses IDW as their marketing wagon, like they did during the marvel era?

    2) If they haven't, is ther any plan to make the IDW version of the characters in toy form?

    Seeing as we have Overlord in the new Wreckers comic, can we expect to see other Japanese-only TF (Star Saber, LeoZak etc) in future comic issues?
