    did anyone else notice that the autobots always seem to be in teams, while the decepticons usually seem to be on their own. anyone think it would be cool to see some sort of Lone Autobot, either as a vigilante thing or maybe an almost Superhero-like character.

    ((posting this while disracted, so lemme know if it dont make sense))

    Jazz was a worthy candidate earlier in the series but he realized the importance of a TEAM.

    The idea of vigilante/rogue autobot would be cool, sort of like marvel comics Punisher.

    This theme was explored successfully in Beast Wars with Depth Charge, and it would certainly work in Animated. Grimlock has been used in this fashion from time to time in the Multiverse, but I think the Animated version doesn't have the intelligence to properly back-up this kind of plot. Mabye Springer or Roddimus could fill this kinda role? Roadbuster could also work as a loner type.

    I got this impression from reading the bio on Movie line Air Raid. By the description I could see him as a lone bounty hunter hurling that energon spear into the chest of a decepticon and leaving his carcass to rust.

    Of course, one of the main reasons that the Autobots work as a team even against lone Decepticons is that if they didn't, they'd probably get their skidplates handed to 'em. But yeah, I can see how a loner 'Bot could be cool.

    I'd quite like to see how Sentinel fares on his own against Megatron... :p

    If there's any candidate for a loner, Punisher-style bot, it would be Pointblank.

    actually, there is a lone autobot-like one not part of the team. Wreck-Gar, however, isnt much of a vigilante lol

    WOLFANG! He's perfect for the lone Autobot role, and he transform into a wolf so that chould work for a Beast Wars Char.

    Marvel's portrayal of Carnivac was pretty cool. A Decepticon that defected to the Autobots (although he didn't go as far as wearing an Autobot badge) with fellow Pretender Beast Catilla, who then goes on a lone hunting spree against his former Decepticon teamates when Bludgeon kills Catilla.

    Okay, maybe not such a well-known character and history outside of the old comics, but still cool. :)

    I got an idea for Animated Springer.
    He is a former elite Guard Bot who is a little older than Optimus. He got tired of how corrupt the Autobot government is and decides to do some thing about it after taking a trip around the universe. (Sort of like Batman in "Batman Begins")
