    Does anyone here feel that the 5 main autobots mostly Prime are due for battle upgrades somehow??

    I understand that they are supposed to be mechanics and under dogs but they have been defending earth against Megs and his goons for a while..They need a promotion or an allspark upgrade!!

    Ugh. 'Upgrades' are so anime-cliche.

    I'd rather see them grow as characters than through POWER UPS!!!

    They did that already with the Prowl episode. Now that that lesson's out of the way they need to give Prime a giant freaking cannon and a super mode... :p 



    While I agree that they don't need to just have them power up, I would like to see them at least get on a similar playing field with the decepticons. It's too easy for a single decepticon to swoop in and damn near crush the autobots. If they leveled the playing field a bit I think that it would allow for both sides to get some decent character development instead of the 'cons just being walking nukes (though Lugnut literally covers that regardless).

    What if they got the upgrades while they were developing as characters?
    Ex. Cheetor from beast Wars.

    Are there more Autobots than Decepticons? If so, then they shouldn't get upgrades so that the ABs will have numbers but the DCs will have strength, leveling out the field to an extent

    Thank you: Beast wars is the perfect example (transmetals that was really cool) i just think after the 1st two seasons people are tired of seeing the same moves (aka ratchet & BB electromagnetic pulse) let the autobots kick some tail the 1st few episodes of season 3 after their upgrades and then bring in the seekers & devastator to give the decepticons more strehgth..Im tired of only seeing blitzwing & lugnut

    I think the upgrades episodes are poking fun at the whole idea. It shows how you can go over the edge.

    I think this show knows better than to toy with silly upgrades.... and even if the bots do change, there will be a serious reason for it... like Megatron getting his body back.

    You think the Elite Guard would have done something to make a bunch of Maintenance Bots more battle ready to face a team of Decepticons which could very well have Megatron in their ranks.

    This just gave me an idea!!

    For the upgrades the Allspark could work...BUT

    Would if the 1st 2 episodes of season 3 the elite guard realize Prime & company need to be more battle ready, so they send in a seasoned vet who just happends to be a drill instructor named HOUND who puts the bots through training to earn differnt weapons or other alt modes to become bigger & stronger

    Well you'd think transformers would have to upgrade once in awhile.
    I doubt Ultra Magnus was forged the size he is and with all of his powers.

    I'd like to see Bulkhead get upgraded to his Leader-class form, if only for a single episode.

    I would be happy if they just upgraded them enough to include the missing features from their toys. Prime needs to use his omega axe and water cannon. Bulkhead should get all his rockets and buzzsaw. Show ratchet using his other tools. Just have Sari upgrade them during the final battle of the last episode.

    I'm guessing it wont happen due to the whole 'Upgrades = bad' episode.

    I never got that myself. Why are they so against having a better chance to win?
    Yeah, its a kids cartoon, the Autobots will always win regardless of the opposition; but you think they would be sick of being totally outclassed when it comes to blows.

    Then again, Ratchet holds the most powerful weapon out of any of them. Shutsdown any transformer with one hit? Still, makes sense that he wouldnt want to see it become a weapon again.

    I say we get the Vok in there and induce another planetbuster explosion causing a Quantum Surge to upgrade the Autobots and random Decepticons that happen to be above surface at the time =P

    I'd like to see Leader Bulkhead's appear somewhere, and perhaps Voyager Primes giant axe (only for one or two eps though), but thats about it.
