What are we callign the iBooks trilogy? it has a gaggle of characters unique to it...

Well, it happens in the Dreamwave continuity, so do we need to give it its own designation? --ItsWalky 09:56, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Everyone yells at me when i try to say it takes place in Dreamave continuity. :~( -Derik 10:09, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Since very few people are going to be familiar with the events of those books, I strongly feel that they should be explicitly cited when information from them is presented, along the lines of the first revision to this article that mentioned them. --Steve-o 21:54, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Are lines like "Buster is a sex crime waiting to happen" really appropriate for this wiki?--G.B. Blackrock 22:39, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

I think funny tag lines on the pictures are a nice way to liven things up and make the pages more fun. Or are you more upset about the content of this one than the fact that it's silly?

"Sex crime", I think, crosses a line this wiki shouldn't cross. Silly is one thing. Light-hearted image tags are fine. But really... "sex crime" is into the inappropriate zone - User: M Sipher

I agree. It's gone. --ItsWalky 22:58, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Should Buster be listed under "Autobot Leaders"? He had the Creation Matrix for a while, after all.

So did a lot of people who aren't Autobot leaders. --M Sipher 22:41, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
Yeah. --Monzo 22:48, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Do we know that the military officer named 'Witwicky' in the comic was supposed to be Buster, or is it just an educated guess/assumption? --Ratbat 06:12, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

I say it's Butch. (But no, unless I missed an interview, it's just the obvious conclusion, unless Sparkplug miraculously survived the Ark II explosion.) --ItsWalky 06:15, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Ah, that's why I ask - that's what at first thought they were building up to. --Ratbat 06:21, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Since they mantion Buster joining the military, I'd say it's Buster. -Derik 06:29, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
Which apparently means "Put him in direct control of EDC immediately." Did he do really well on an exam somewhere? --ItsWalky 06:31, 20 June 2006 (UTC)
It depends on how you skew your age percaptions.Buster should be, like, 33 in DW continuity, right? Well old enough to have participated in the Nastiness of 1998 in some organized manner.
The Keepers Trilogy has this ongoign riff about how Prime taught Spike to think like a soldier. Given the organized worldwide pish in 98, it's certaianly possible the Witwickeys served in some military capacity- civilian consultants or whatnot.
Hell, the exo-suit project got conflated with Centurion in Dreamwave continuity. For all we know it was further conflated witht the Robot Buster storyline- and Buster was a civilian test-pilot on Nathaniel's original exo-suit test program.
(...I'm now getting images of an Autobot-X/Robot Buster teamup, my mind works in AWFUL WAYS.)
Anyway, I think Buster's backstory vanishes neatly into the vast gulf of missing time in Dreamwave's continuity.-Derik 06:40, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

The iBooks trilogy is shady enough, but I can think of at least one colouring book that features Buster (and I have dim memory of an ancient storybook that also did, but I can't confirm). Before I pull the switch, think that's enough to move him away from 'comic-only characters'? --Ratbat 00:04, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Good question! My gut reaction is 'comics-only means comics-continuity only.' and coloring books (somehow) get lumped under the comics banner by the same logic from which you can have 'prose-only' characters hat have pictures.
*thinks* is comics-only attempting to define itself in opposition of animated continuity? 'cuz Buster sure hasn't appeared in an animated series.
(Mind, I think he should lose the comics-only tag simply in terms of WYSIWIG.) - 00:17, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
