Our sun has around 5500 Celsius surface temperatures I'm fairly sure, so not quite ^_^

This sounds more like a sun than a planet.

Not if you know what suns and planets actually are.

Stars (suns) generate heat by nuclear fusion at their core, planets do not. Since this planet is generating no heat of it's own and is hot only due to it's proximity to a star it sounds nothing like a star.

Come on taniwha, this is pretty basic stuff even by your standards.

Tidal locked and wondering about other parallels with mercury -- magnetic field yielding a weak atmosphere, large core. These extreme planets are interesting.
