    Ok first off this just a big IF question.


    IF Rodimus had to pass on the Matrix of leadership to a new leader who would it be?

    A current autobot or someone new entirely?

    What do you think?

    Who knows. I think there were two occasions in the cartoon when he planned on passing it on to Springer. And I think there was an 'what if' type of story in the Marvel UK comics where he planned to give it to Springer as well.

    In Headmasters he only turned leadership not the bauble in his chest. He's worse in that one Cybertron blew up in his watch.

    Springer was his personal choice in "Five Faces of Darkness, Part 4" and the UK comic story "Peace".

    But did you ever feel that Springer was the right choice???

    I always liked Springer....more so after I was introduced to the UK books, but I always felt he was better at commanding a small unit, not an entire army.

    Hasbro would probably invent a new character like they did when Rodimus became Prime.

    In the G1 cartoon, after Rodimus came..... Optimus Prime. Again.

    But some choices I can think of is throwing in Star Saber or Metalhawk.

    It would be cool to see the Matrix being passed to them.

    True, but Optimus also gave the Matrix to Ultra Magnus. And we all know how that turned out.

    As I recall, Cybertron blew up under Optimus' watch as well.

    Anyway, Fortress.

    He should have given it back to Ultra Magnus as that was what Optimus Prime wanted. If not that, it really should have been Fortress in Headmasters.

    quote=Pravus Prime;

    Optimus Prime had passed away again before that event.

    A nice what if would have been if he had given to Arcee I think. The Autobots all need a woman's touch and she's just the bot to lead if given a chance.

    ...stop staring at me like that. Please?

    Wheelie, obviously!


    Or as was stated earlier you would see it passed onto someone introduced/created to take over the role. Maybe even Hot Shot?

    Either Bumblebee or Drift. Which would annoy people more? Perhaps give it to Daniel?

    Are you talking about a different series??

    Because he was dead again in Headmasters by the time Cybertron blew up.

    Ultra Magnus would have been able to "deal with it". In season 3 he was pretty much the leader anyways. The Movie was just a bad turn of events for the poor guy. I doubt any other Autobot would have been able to fare any better.
