    Remember Major Spoilers I don't want you guys too get mad at me if you see/ read something you did not want too know about!




    Well the title says it all (even the warning about spoilers). Are you happy with this traitorous prime or do you want something else. In my own opinion I was hoping Sentinel prime would be like cybertron vector prime, a bot that came from a time of peace only too find out after coming from stasis lock that a war has errupted. He sides with the autobots and helps bring down a few cons but in the end he gets killed and dies a hero's death (not like jetfire who commited suicide just so prime could fly). Oh well I guess my leader Sentinel will be the good guy in my verse.

    To be honest with you, I'm actually happy that there is a treacherous Prime. It's actually the first time I've ever seen an evil Prime, if you don't count Nemesis Prime.

    Here's hoping that he may see the light in the end for the misdeeds he causes. Who knows?

    At first I liked him, but then when he revels that
    he's working with the Cons and kills Ironhide
    I was not only shocked, but angry at the character.

    I like it. It provides a very good twist to the movie that I would never see coming (if I had never read the spoilers:redface2: ).

    Don't forget the Fallen but that's another reason why I am upset, That makes two primes who have gone too the "dark side" Just seems a bit cliche since Bay already had a back stabbing prime why would he need another one?

    But the ROTF was the first time The Fallen was revealed to be a Prime. That in it's self was new for the fandom.

    Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes...

    Much rather have fresh, new take on character than pointless retreading.

    Yeah, but this Prime was the mentor of Optimus, so it makes the "fall" harder on the Autobot leader, as well as more unexpected.

    I'm kinda sad that he is a bad guy, I mean yeah he has always been somewhat of a douche but never a bad guy.

    I am kinda disappointed, there has always been megatron and the fallen or megatron and shockwave but never Optimus and another important leader.

    Needless to say, I am disappoint. While it makes an interesting twist to what will happen, I seriously hoping for Sentinel Prime to be a good guy who ends up dying during the final battle and not be a traitor.

    This makes it the second time that I find myself hating the Sentinel Prime character, and establishes my believe that the only one true Prime is Optimus.

    Definetely. I had expect him to be just another pointless Optimus. Good goody with epic lines.

    This plot twist brings a lot of new history and faces to the character and I love that.

    Personally I think it is a great idea to shake up the pattern a bit. We are at a third film so we kind of need something more than just Decepticons show up a plan they can't pull off only to get slaughtered by the Autobots.

    Not really Vector Prime's Cybertron comic backstory claims the 13 original Transformers were Primes. Hasbro retcons it that only 7 were officially Primes.

    Mind you I was a bit surprised too. I was speculating Sentinel Prime was the Fallen's opposite number among the Autobots and the Ark and Nemesis crashes were related.

    I love this twist in the plot!

    There are more people who are going to watch this movie that have no clue about the "betrayal". cant wait to hear all the reaction in the cinema.
