    Which of our five Autobots had the best backstory now that we've seen all their flashback episodes?

    Here's all of them in chronlogical order.

    Ratchet:
    YouTube - TFA: Arcee (Flashbacks from "The Thrill of the Hunt")

    YouTube - TFA: Omega Supreme (Flashbacks from "Transwarped")


    Prowl:
    YouTube - TFA: Prowl (Flashbacks from "Five Servos of Doom")


    Optimus:
    YouTube - TFA: Elita One (Flashbacks from "Along Came a Spider")


    Bulkhead and Bumblebee:
    YouTube - TFA: Wasp (Flashbacks from "Autoboot Camp", Pt 1)

    YouTube - TFA: Wasp (Flashbacks from "Autoboot Camp", Pt 2)


    I can't decide which one is the best.

    Oh, hey 1600th post. Yay!

    we still need more Optimus' past, Elita-1 accident is not all i think. I really dig Ratchet's backstory, maybe because it's most connected with Great War. Prowl's was interesting too, hope to see more and actually see more cameo of Dai Atlas, Grandus, Sky Garry if possible. Bumblebee's and Bulkhead's story is cool, but not as others

    Out of what we've seen, Ratchet's is easily my favourite.
    The emotion carried in the writing and the voice acting is spot on. He's been elevated from just being the "grumpy one" to actually having a reason for his personality and how it's developed.

    ...and the flashback in transwarped is what made me go out and get a Ratchet toy.

    Which character has the best back story, you ask? I'll give you a hint, he's voiced by Corey Burton. :wink:

    What I really want, since I'm doubting the luffly Twins will get much in the way of a backstory during the season, is more of Bumblebee's past.

    Sari.

    Yeah, she's not among the five you mentioned, and her backstory isn't complete yet, but she's still one of the core cast members.

    Seriously, that protoform idea was BRILLIANT.

    Ratchet comes in a close second.

    Ratchet, no doubt. Grisly vet stories are the best.

    Optimus.
    Mainly because his Cybertron mode is awesome and we need to see more of it.
