Someone wrote:Thanks for the post, I have doubts about Liege Maximo, why Primus created evil?

I don't know for certain, but I have two theories
A) Balance. There cannot be good without evil.
B) He created them, but he didn't create their personality, that developed on it's own.

"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Yup.

I just wish the sequel's recording (or at least its script) would get released. :roll:

But, if we wanna talk more about that story, there's this thread for that. ;)

Done and done.

Also took away the "Prime" from Megatronus's name just in case (since I honestly can't recall having specifically heard "Megatronus Prime" in an official work before, unless Exodus/Exiles specifically did and I just forgot).

Granted, it's still an assumption at this point (since the Wiki guys have as much access to the new book as any of us), but still quite likely. ;)
