Older NewsThe below is the latest email sent out from Sector Seven (it must be noted that the email is sent in-character).

To Whom It May Concern:

Due to the increased e-mails, as well as the intrusions into our proprietary systems, our work here at Sector Seven has been slowed to a crawl. We're simply trying to finish our newest computer game software on time, and yet we continue to be inundated with strange queries and comments regarding something called "N.B.E.s" and someone known as "Agent X." We have no idea to whom or to what these terms refer.

As a result of this continuing drain on our resources, we're being forced to shut down our e-mail system for the foreseeable future. Any e-mail sent to us will bounce back. In addition, we're freezing our internal systems until we can eliminate the "hackers" out there who think it's funny to screw around with corporate networks. If we can complete our work, we think you'll be very satisfied with the result.

Thanks for your patience.
The Staff of Sector Seven Industries

Older News TFWorld2005 member Destro has posted the bio for the Pepsi Prime figure, believed to be the Pepsi Transformers toy mentioned on their site. The bio sounds like the toy could well be Pepsi Convoy (the recent version not the original).

TRANSFORMERS Pepsi OPTIMUS PRIME

It is of paramount importance to OPTIMUS PRIME that his mission and the presence of the AUTOBOTS on Earth remain a secret. Part of maintaining that secret is changing his disguise from time to time, though never so drastically that he has to get used to a whole new vehicle mode. This new disguise helps keep him incognito, hiding his presence from the DECEPTICONS and allowing him to plan their defeat without interruption. As an added bonus, this disguise, like some of his past ones, lets him hook up his fellow AUTOBOTS with some free Earth delicacies they rarely get to enjoy Pepsi OPTIMUS PRIME is a G1-styled figure with prominent Pepsi deco featured on the cab and open-bed trailer.

Older NewsSimon Furman has answered five questions on his blog which were chosen by IDW forum moderator Bassbot.

Here's a snippet, but click the link to read the whole article.

It's never (or rarely) just a random throw of the dice. Somehow, either that character should serve the story (even in a very minor way) or, by their presence, bring out something in another character or provide the spur for some bit of action/drama/conflict.
