Transformers Interviews and ArticlesWe thought we'd have a little fun with you all this morning and test your knowledge with some Did You Know's from the Generation One series. So here here go.
  1. Did you know that Jetfire was originally going to be called Fireball before being changed to Skyfire and then eventually Jetfire?
  2. Did you know that, when he was Fireball, Jetfire's function was Autobot Aerospace Commander which was latter changed to Autobot Air Guardian?
  3. Did you know that Grimlock was originally going to be called Trapjam?  He was also known as Jawbreaker as well.
  4. Did you know that the Sharkticons were originally known Sharkons before being changed to Sharticon. It was only on on reviewing the name that the k was added and they finally became the Sharkticons.
  5. Did you know that Quintessa was originally known as the planet Sharkon?
  6. Did you know that in one of the meetings regarding the cartoon series when the crew discussed the characters for the Transformers Megatron was described as "more like Destro - icy" and that he "doesn't make jokes".
  7. Did you know that in the same meeting, they described Starscream as "more like Cobra Commander, psycho, more wild, violent.
  8. Did you know that in the original plans when ever Unicron spoke in the whilst in Robot mode in Transformers: The Movie, lightning rods were suppose to slash from his eyes, while other colours flashed from various parts of his body.
  9. Did you know that in the original scale of Unicron, Earth was going to be the size of one of the spheres that are on Unicron's rings.
  10. Did you know that Unicron, originally referred to simply as "The Planet Entity", was designed with rings simply because Saturn has rings and is a similar word to Satur, which is synonymous with the Devil?
All of the information above was resourced from the original character design sheets, series bibles and other original Sunbow notes.

Transformers Interviews and Articles

Kotaku.com have recently interview Matt Tieger of High Moon Studios who is the lead designer on the upcoming Transformers: War For Cybertron video game.  The interview was primarily based on whether the multi-player mode would enable players to combine into Devastator.  The answer was no, "The guy who is the kneecap, what does he do?" Matt replied when asked the question.  Kotaku.com was also told that they would "only include robots that turn into a vehicle", which isn't really surprising.
