Ive watched every episode, and kept active track of optimus' key role in the series as a leader. One thing that struck me odd ever since the series started was that he wasnt the leader of the autobots, but leader of a space bridge maintenance crew. Now with season 3 about to come into effect, i wonder about his role as the series goes on. Hes able to hold is own against megatron, but whats bugged me is that hes much smaller than megs, even though hes still able to fight him nicely. What i think they are planning is eventually involving the Matrix of Leadership in the series, and if they do that, you know primes going to get it eventually, and possibly see a size upgrade. I personally dont know how id feel about the way they present that, but i have a certain feeling that they will do this.
