    Having prime died you think he would of gave the matrix to Jazz if he was there?

    Imagine the name Jazzimus Prime. We all know the actor died ,like Hot Rod he changed actor when he became Rodimus

    There are probably at least a dozen Autobots you could make an argument for, in having Prime passing the Matrix to them.

    I can imagine the name Jazzimus Prime, I don't like doing so for long... and casting a new actor for voice is low on the totem pole of priorities. Besides, Rodimus didn't get a new voice the instant he made the transition, Judd Nelson still voiced Rodimus Prime in the closing moments of the movie. The fact of the matter is, they weren't about to pay a named star the fees to voice a character for another thirty some episodes when they could get much cheaper talent to do it.

    Besides. Jazzimus Prime gets Hasbro 1 new toy to sell. Hot Rod and then Rodimus Prime got them toy new toys to sell.

    An argument can be made for most of the cast, Iron Hide, Jazz, Springer, Magnus even Kup, but its seems more like its up to the Matrix to choose its next bearer and not the one who is currently bearing it.

    In the movie it chose Hot Rod, even if Prime gave it to Jazz, or just shot it into the sun, Events would conspire to bring it all back into the hands of the turbo revving young punk.

    I think if Ironhide became the next leader he'd be Ironhide Prime, like sentinal Prime etc And jazz would be the same too he'd be Jazz Prime. I reckon Ironhide would be the second in comand and wouldn't need no wrinkles lol.

    Comedy option aside, it's not like every prime just gets their name "-imus"ified, though. Hot Rod did. Orion pax didn't (well the optronix named version did, I guess). Then again Orion Pax's initials are OP, so yeah. May have just demolished my own point there. Whatever.

    EDIT:
    It sounds better that way IMO.

    No, Maestro is italian, for master. Meister is german, for the same. The closest in latin would probably be Magister, though Magistrate Prime could be a pretty cool concept.


    Jazz always seemed to me like he wanted to be on the front lines, learning new things about earth culture and often working on his own. I really can't see him leading the entire Autobot faction. Same thing with Ironhide, he makes a great Sergeant, but I can't really see him as a general. Though then again, Optimus got his hands dirty plenty of times.

    if jazz would become leader then transformers would become a musical. the autobots would creep up on the decepticons hunched over and snapping their fingers....

    I'd like to see Prowl, most trusted of Prime's advisors, take over. As for what he would look like upgraded to a Prime, I think Energon Checkpoint.

    Maybe call him Prime Logic.

    Oh when you're a 'bot,
    you're a bot 'til you're done
    When your spark goes online
    Til the day all are one

    Yeah when you're a 'bot
    man, the things you'll be seeing,
    as you fight for the freedom
    of all sentient beings

    you're never alone
    at distinct disadvantage
    you might miss your home
    but somehow we'll manage (though you might get damaged)

    You'll wear it with pride when you get Autobranded
    Though it might get you killed when you do what's commanded
    When you're a 'bot you, stay, a booooooooot!
