    I tried the forum search, but didn't see anything like this, but if I'm wrong, mods please delete.

    I'm a little obsessed with trivia of just about any kind, and thought it would be fun to create a Transformers trivia game.

    The rules are simple:
    1. Answer a question. Quote the question and give the answer.
    2. Ask another question.

    Questions can be from any era or continuity of the Transformers mythos from Diaclone/Microchange all the way up to Age of Extinction and beyond. American, European, and Japanese toys and fiction are fair game, but fan fiction should probably be left out. I personally don't care if third party stuff is mentioned, but I'll leave that up to the mods.

    It would be cool if your question included some labels/tags to delineate what category of the mythos you're asking about, as well as an indicator of the continuity. In the case of a challenged answer, you may discuss and debate as long as you include the answer to a question and a question of your own.

    I'll update this post/rules if weird stuff and awkward issues arise, but I don't anticipate any shenanigans.

    I'll go first, with a super easy one, but feel free to make yours difficult and obscure.

    is Shoji Kawamori (Macross, Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory, Armored Core) alone responsible for the creation of the Diaclone Battle Convoy that would later became eveyone's G1 Optimus Prime & Ultra Magnus? or there is another mechanical designer who did it before him?
