    Considering the effort they went through to resolve the differences and thereby connect TF Prime with Exodus/WFC and Exiles, I doubt it.

    But themes of jealousy, love and tragedy don't have to feel shallow. Instead, relate it to Othello, by William Shakespeare. Which I believe had great depth.

    Maybe they can show the Fallen( and possibily Liege Maximo as well) as a tragic character, not necessarily evil, driven by not only extreme jealousy but by loneliness and dispair.

    After all, I kind of feel sorry for the 13. They were born in a world before there was a moral and ethical code. It was a time when there were no rules to protect each others rights. They had no guardian other than Primus to guide them. But how can Primus, a being who himself had no experience being with others be of any assistance. They had no history or experience of those who came before to lean on. They were also the first of their kind, none came before them and they were different from those who would come after. When one becomes isolated and lonely, its easy to go astray.

    Hasbro really are spamming/trolling the fandom sometimes lately.

    I preferred the explanation that the Junkions where prisoners dumped through a space bridge onto a pile of junk thrown away from Cybertron by the Cybertronians - that is why they have often have Autobot logos but also why they are not always friendly to Cybertronians.

    Also if isolation gave Speedarians (easier to spell) super powers perhaps the quick repair ability of the Junkions is a similar ability.

    Perhaps the toy space ship that is in the Cybertron-Legion line is a hint the Prime Autobots might be going off planet - it also might be a hint that Prime himself might be hanging with the Autobots again before they go into space.

    If they do go all Galaxy Force will they leave Miko at home or take her with them to intimidate any Dragons they find ?

    That kinda half ruins Blurr for me. I always thought that he was special because he could run so fast. Having an entire planet that goes as fast as he does makes him seem not as special.

    Also, Transformer pirates, hell yeah.

    I'm starting to get used to it, though it doesnt seem like something worthy of losing your name. Perhaps theres a way to link the betreyal to Unicron with the one from the book?

    Junk wasn't excatly a colony per se. it was more a giant galactic trash dump that formed into a planet because of the gravitational pull of the requiem blaster hidden there. Thousands of Cybertronian scavengers ended up stuck there when the space bridges collapsed, and they became the Junkions.

    Doubtful. Hasbro says they want to tell the Thirteen's story through several forms of media, and each form of media having its own story wouldn't exactly help...

    Speedia (Velocitron) has been around for several years now. Although didn't realize they had made it so Blurr was from it, but it makes sense to me. Personally I like the whole different planets that Transformers inhabit thing. Leads to various kinds of TFs.

    Gunna have to pick up these books and give them a read later.

    In the Book, Speedia is the city/great reaceway, Velocitron is the planet.

    Ah is it? I watched Galaxy Force so I'm used to calling the planet Speedia. I can dig this.

    Wait, he can't read them, but everyone else can read them? That's kind of stupid.

    Wait they changed the names of Nexus Prime's component robots?

    I was under the impression that anyone who does read them gets more confused as they continue. I've just started the book myself so I'll look out for it.

    The Covenant of Primus is meant to be read by those whose era of language it pertains to. That was the thing about the Covenant in Beast Wars. It was written in the Maximal/Predacon language because it pertained to them. Alpha Trion was writing in what would be a future language. The meaning of the message isn't clear until it starts to become relevant.

    Was that actually stated? I've never heard of different Cybertronian dialects.

    Exodus states

    I'm presuming the descriptions of the future in the book are written in English.

    So if Elita ever shows up in Prime, is Megatron going to be jealous of Optimus wanting her all to himself? Nah. I can't see Megatron loving anything. All he wants to do is hate and destroy.

    Some info about the Covenant of Primus straight from Exodus:

    Figure it might help some with understanding how the Covenant works.
