@Chro , I think @Brikkyy13 was talking about G1... =P
@Lovice, we did get an incredible amount of backstory for almost every character in G1. Farshtey really expanded the franchise's story to include a lot of backstory, and a lot of detail. It gets confusing at some points, but eventually you get the hang of who-did-what-and-where-and-why-it-even-matters. =P
If you're talking about G2, then idk what to say except of course we don't know anything, it isn't even officially released yet!
