Haha, oh wow. So, I was browsing tfwiki this morning, and ended up on the page for The Thirteen. Upon which I discovered that, at least as far as I can tell, the official list of original Primes has been utterly screwed up, due to an apparently not very well informed writer for the Ask Vector Prime Facebook page canonizing Mortilus, Adaptus, Epistermis, and Solomonus as members of the Thirteen. You know, the four other parts of IDW Prima once the Transformers god split himself five ways, who were formerly exclusive to that continuity and may in fact be nothing more than legends in universe. Regardless, they are most certainly NOT members of the thirteen in IDW, since the full list of Thirteen in the comics has already been revealed to be virtually the same as it when it was first established for the Alligned continuty - but they are apparently members of the Thirteen in a yet to be featured continuity that nevertheless now exists in the transformers multiverse. In other words, a big screw up.
Oh, and because this is Transformers canon we are talking about, it gets even better. Let me now quote the page for on the wiki for Adaptus:
In at least one universe, Adaptus was one of the Thirteen following the dissolution of the group as multiversal singularities. When the Thirteen spent time in Ancient Greece, Adaptus was fascinated by the ocean, and the holomatter avatar Adaptus used to interact with the human population wound up inspiring the legend of the god Poseidon. Vector wondered if his memory might live on in Sub-Atlantica. Ask Vector Prime, 8/8/15
Following the breaking up of the Thirteen, Vector described how Adaptus and four of his other siblings retreated into the Realm of the Primes, while he underwent self-induced amnesia to keep hidden the location of the pieces ofNexus Prime. During a later battle between Vector—now believing himself an ordinary Transfomer—and Mogahn the Mass, Vector's consciousness transcended into the Realm of the Primes, where Adaptus and his siblings unlocked his memories of his past. Vector returned to normal space and wrested away Mogahn's Cyber Caliber, using a gift Adaptus had bestowed on him to reformat the blade into Rhisling, with which he vanquished Mogahn. When Vector recounted this event in his internet Q&A column, he casually remarked that Adaptus would later be called "Amalgamous", causing his readers to express confusion, since they understood Adaptus and Amalgamous Prime to be separate beings from different universe's versions of the Thirteen. The distressed Vector realized he was conflating the memories of two different universes, which ought to have been impossible. As such, it becomes hard to know whether Adaptus was truly part of those events or not.
So basically, it is now canon that, at least in the case of Adaptus, Vector Prime has made it clear in universe that he has no idea what he is talking about -, because in real life, the guy who wrote that particular Facebook post has no idea what he is talking about in that instance. However, the rest of this mess is still apparently canon, since in universe Vector Prime has not yet caught himself making a continuity error regarding the other newly established members of the Thirteen - even though in the real world the guy who ultimately is responsible for this mess has almost certainly made a continuity error, or at the very least, over-complicated the canon in a completely unnecessary way.
TLDR version: Transformers canon is not going to stop being a massive clusterfudge any time soon.
