    Transformers Prime is so far a really good show all together with some crappy episodes but i think its what i wanted for the most part. Now they have killed off several characters already. Hasbro should think about this a little more if they want this Aligned universe to last a while. I know Transformers have many many characters but still if they want the Aligned universe to last they gotta be careful with this.
    DEATHS SO FAR
    CliffJumper - Episode 1 and a popular Autobot
    Skyquake - Episode 6 Not that known besides this (I think he is in Last Stand of the Wreckers)
    Makeshift - Episode 8 no big deal
    Breakdown- Episode 33 a main con and needed for Menasor
    Several Wrekers such as Seaspray, Pyro, RotorStorm are dead.
    They already killed The Wrecker Impactor who the leader for the most part and the well known Roadbuster.

    I know what you mean with Breakdown and all in the newest episode and I'm sure it will be cool to see him and silas.

    It'll be best for the show not to be aligned with any other story. Less fan rage, nitpickers, in jokes and forced references to something that nobody will get.

    one thing to remember is due to the new Aligned Continuity and Hasbro bible, we have to forget what we think we know circa Gen 1 through Beast Wars through Energon, Armada and even the Bey movies and TF Animated.

    TF Prime and the video games plus any other up to date media, basically is the new canon.


    Oh, welcome to the Boards by the way

    I don't see how hard it is for kids to read the books.

    I'm pleased. I think the whole 'Aligned continuity' thing is bullshit, and I would relish its dissolution.

    How do we know that Menasor even exists in this continuity? I don't even see a resemblance between G1/2 Breakdown and the one we got.

    An online interview that surfaced last year revealed that a combiner is coming, but which one exactly hasn't been disclosed or has it? The hint dropped at Comic Con were
    It will be devastating
    . But will it be of Cybertron or Earth's designs? Either way, I'm sure it'll be different from anything we've ever seen.

    With hundreds (thousands?) of Transformers at their disposal, I feel the writers of the show have little worry about. There are so many other characters to choose from.

    Yeah, like that was going to happen.

    Don't let your fanon mix with your canon to the point that you believe it.

    However, except for the referenced wreckers all of the deaths were used to affect the plot. Cliffjumper showed us Arcee's motivation. Skyquake gave us Dreadwing while him and Seaspray brought Wheeljack to earth to stay. Makeshift needed to die because he was in Exiles and was to powerful to continue existing. Breakdown's death will lead to interesting things for Mech.

    Now, I admit that they could of written solutions without deaths; I'm just saying they serve a literary purpose and thus are not pointless. As for the Wreckers, the team is known for dying. The only one I don't remember dying (and he probably did) from your list is Roadbuster.

    I pose the ? to you then.

    Why do you wish that the Aligned Continuity not exist?
    To me I rather have everything fit under the same umbrella, it keeps rogue thoughts from flourishing as someone else said, prevents Fanon from becoming Canon and thus muddying the waters to the Nth level

    I appreciate the hell out of Fanon myself, but I don't see how the aligned continuity has anything to do with Fanon.

    I find it limiting to creativity, and I also think it's nice to have multiple continuities to choose from - it's freeing for stories and characters. It's something I've always appreciated about Transformers. I'm less enthusiastic about future products, knowing that it will all be part of this supposed "aligned universe".

    And trying to retroactively tie things together rarely works properly. WFC and Prime do not work for me as part of the same continuity and never will.

    They can barely afford to introduce 1 new character. How will they introduce a combiner?
