Takara retconned it back to being another sequel like the English version, thus making Galaxy Convoy be the same guy as Convoy/Grand Convoy (among other characters being the same people), and Unicron being the identity of the nameless evil god from Galaxy Force. ;)

Not to mention all the appearances of Armada/Energon stuff in Cybertron, even in the Galaxy Force version (such as wreckage from Unicron's corpse showing up).

To be fair, that was a Hasbro invention that was inserted into the English version of the cartoon, where such mentionings weren't present in the Japanese version.

Thankfully, that worked out in the long run thanks to Megatron looking pretty glaringly like Unicron (and possessing unexplained magic powers that seemed godlike enough to apply to Unicron). ;)

The book is out, I own it, I wrote that after reading it, the name is all over TFWiki, we can't keep denying any longer that they actually went and turned the metaphorical Robot Jesus into a literal Robot Jesus. :x

1. Prima
2. Vector Prime
3. Alpha Trion
4. Solus Prime
5. Micronus Prime
6. Alchemist Prime
7. Nexus Prime
8. Onyx Prime
9. Amalgamous Prime

I call bull :x

This is just lazy and uninspired. I'm guessing this makes Rodimus the 14th :roll:

If they just wanted to be lazy there are a lot better choices, such as The Last Autobot, Maccadam, Arcoplex

Now keep in mind I have yet to read the Covenant, but there had better be a really good explanation :x
