Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye Rewritten?

Several months ago, we found out that the Transformers: Profiles - since renamed Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye - was revamped with an all new layout due to lack of books being sold. The books are now being produced with eight issues (previous four) and containing 64 pages each book. To read more about the revamp, check out this previous report.

Lying in the Gutters at Comic Book Resources have given a report on some possible new information about the books. Basically, the company hired by Dreamwave, Destination Entertainment, was hired to write the brand new continuity for the Transformers universe for Dreamwave to work with. However, the millions of years of information being rewritten has gotten complicated, and may have conflicts between the two companies. The report below is from Lying in the Gutters:
    Still waiting for the "Transformers Profiles?" A series of books promised from Dreamwave, that were to feature all the different Transformer characters, with a profile for each and a new continuity timeline for them all covering millions of years?

    Well.

    Destination Entertainment were the company drafted to create this monumental job. It was already pushed back once when Initial orders were low, but the repackaged version was expected to do better.

    I understand the project has been revamped from the bottom up. Allegations made include new and contradictory elements being introduced... apparently having a million years of continuity per introduced toy line year was a little messier than first thought. One problem was when some characters became other characters later in the toyline. Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Jazz, Grimlock, Megatron, Starscream and others were changed over the course of the line and turned into new, more modern toys. Apparently much of the work contradicted Simon Furman's Transformer new history being written in "Transformers: War Within" and the new G1 series too much - a relationship Dreamwave were more concerned about keeping when the issues came to light.

    I understand entries for A through M were already done by Destination Nowhere, but it's not yet known whether or not Dreamwave will use those entries in the final product. Much of the text was junked months ago, and although some of the artwork is being redone, it's not going to be late, nor is it being reformatted again.
    There will likely be more and generic information rather than the in-depth origins and anecdotes originally promised.
Thanks to TFW2005 for the heads up.
