Questions and Answers

+ How does Stormbreaker tie in to the DW stuff?
It doesn't.

+ Will there be any BW one-shots?
No, will just be G1 right now. However there are more plans for Beast Wars. Something more than one shots.

+ Will there be any more Evolution lines?
Yes, but prob not till after the movie. We don't want too many different continuities. Denying that, Furman mentioned the use in Headmasters jokingly. Furman let it slip yesterday the Headmasters would be in the comic.

+ Any plans to finish DW stuff?
It's all tied up in legal stuff and has to be resolved if it will ever be resolved.

+ BW profile series will be written by Ben Yee and Simon Furman. Drawing will be done by all kinds of artists including Don, Guido, Nick Roach and new guys!

+ Furman just let it slip again that the Predacons will be showing up in the comic.

+ Any type of past stories like War Within coming soon?
They think so, Furman says. We will probably see stories that harken back to the past.

+ IDW is looking to do their own GI Joe/TF crossover. They want it to be good.

+ They ask people if they like Humans in the comic? Audience goes ape shit!!!

+ There are plans to make both human haters and likers happy.

+ Robby Musso is doing the Ultra Magnus one-shot.

+ Chris Ryall and Furman are doing a 4-part prequel for the movie Prime Directive.

+ Chris said people shouldn't be afraid to post their work on their message boards. Because they do sometimes get picked up.

+ IDW will be reprinting the War Within stories.

+ Bob Budiansky was not looking to do original TF stories but after doing the movie adaption it seems to have wet his appetite. Might do something like taken past stories and do a Greatest Battle type title.

+ Look for some of the Marvel UK stories likely to be reprinted in Generations.

+ No denial or confirmation on the crossover rumor.

+ IDW hopes to reprint all the Beast Wars covers or a big art book showing all the artwork.

+ If it makes sense to the story, there might be some Japanese G1 characters showing up. No Beast Wars ones except in the profile book.

+ IDW can't do an Alternators comic cause of licensing restrictions.
