    On the latest issue of Previews, page #414, there's talk of an upcoming "The Fallen" figure. Who was this character? Was it a Dreamwave original-character? I seem to be missing my DW comics, at the moment.

    This is what I know about him-

    -War Within Character
    -One of the origional 13 TF's
    -Found out about Unicron
    -Went evil after releasing Unicron from his prison
    -His name has been forgotten

    Other than that, he's being made into a 6" Titanium figure. It's the one in my sig and avatar. He's also one of my favorite charactes now. I hope this helps. Peace out.

    He's from the War Within series that Dreamwave released. He's kind of an "ultimate evil" sort of character that both the Autobots & Decepticons need to stop... and do so rather easily imo. I can't remember his exact origins off hand, but I do remember being pretty underwhelmed by the character considering how much hype DW gave him before he was fully revealed. As the titanium toy shows, he's just another tank - nothing particularly stand-outish about him.

    Glad to have him as a titanium figure nonetheless.

    EDITED: the guys who posted right before me got it right :)

    Yes, Boltax looked after the Underbase (he was the building surrounding the Underbase) and the Keeper guarded the sleeping Primus.

    Didn't the Botcon "Reaching the Omega Point" comic feature the original 13 based off zodiac star signs?

    I think it's suspected that he is, but I don't think it's confirmed anywhere.

    Wasn't Sandstorm (1999 BotCon exclusive) one of the original 13?

    Sandstorm and the other Zodiac guys were indeed the very first Transformers, but not The Thirteen.

    Primus battled Unicron on the astral plane, then fled to the physical world, trapping them both in planets. But before Primus trapped himself, he has to be sure then he could shape his rocky prison. So he put a small bit of himself into a moon-ish thing, and created the Covenant (the Zodiac guys). After Primus saw this success, he proceeded to the physial world, and Unicron and Primus were trapped in their planetoids. Primus became Cybertron and created the first 13 Transformers.

    Read the story here (it's near the end).
