A little while back, there was a thread about a new idea for a series would be to have a leader that wasn't Optimus Prime. Most of the comments in that thread stated that they were tired of Optimus as he stood, and that Transformers needed a new leader. I know that Hasbro won't change Optimus out physically - he's too popular and too iconic. However, that doesn't mean that Optimus can't change. What would those of you, who are sick of Optimus, change to refresh him? Even if you aren't sick of him, what would you like to see Hasbro do with him? I personally want to see them get into his head and explore exactly what crucible a man has to go through to produce someone of Optimus's caliber. What trials has he endured? What has he lost? Why is he doing this - not just his principles, but what event led him to follow those principles? What does he have to live for? I personally think that someone like Optimus can be interesting and even more inspiring if you get down to the nuts and bolts of his character and history, and you find out what really makes him tick. His principles are only part of him - his experiences and his reactions to said experiences are another part.
