    They're available to order now... Vector Prime is confirmed as Cybertron Series (we all figured he would, but still).

    The one I'm really curious is Leo Prime's bio. It's unlikely he'll be Beast Wars series, because he has an Autobot symbol, not a Maximal symbol. We shall see...

    I think he did trying to rescue Ironhide, the G2 Cons had him surrounded, he took cover in a building and they blew it up, never saw him again after that

    Timelines has always been official, being (as I recall) written by Hasbro's Forest Lee, who also writes these bios. What we should consider for Vector Prime is the upcoming The Thirteen by Furman. As I recall, IDW said Hasbro was working closely on that, which is interesting given one of the first thirteen Transformers was The Fallen...

    Yeah, he died on Ethos in the G2 story Escalation! in issue 8, distraught after Smokescreen got himself killed.

    I think Inferno and Smokescreen's friendship was something Furman ported over from the UK G1 comic.

    Yeah, in one of the G2 comics a team of Autobots including Inferno were trying to stop a Cybertronian extermination squad on some alien planet..... he rushed into a building to save someone and it was razed and came down on him. He wasn't seen again after that but I think it was implied that he was dead.

    Huh. I'm surprised they thought there was enough of difference to mention this is G2 Inferno. I wouldnt think there was enough of a difference to warrant that sort of mention.

    They should save the G2 designation for things like Tank Megatron or characters that were only in G2... Or how about a good Jhiaxus figure?

    I understand Universe wanting to include MANY Transformers from across all toylines and series...but Generation 2 Inferno? Wha? Where's the logic in that?
