    Welps, Grandus is officially my favorite Animated charcter. He just looks SOOOOO fucking ownage. Only real ones are him, Sky Garry, Rodimus, and maybe Huffer.

    I think we'll see Huffer and Pipes as background characters. Those two give off a bigger Mario and Luigi vibe than Mix and Scrapper. :lol

    I'd almost shit a brick if they're all real. (Though I doubt Botanica would make an appearance. I'm not sure Mr. Wyatt wants to be lynched.) Still, that would be a hell of an AFD joke... I know if I was him, I'd make you guess and then have 'em all be real.

    To prove how much I want Vangelus to appear, I even gave it a story.

    Version 1: He's some guy looking to be famous. And is first shown walking down the street with a camcorder in his hand, "talking" to it (zomg Subtitles!) about how he'll be a famous personality one day. One day...

    Version 2: It's Shockwave's hologram. DOHOH! Try getting that reference.

    Either way, I envision a scene where Sari meets him as she's eating ice cream, makes some remark that pisses him off, then he slaps her ice cream away and goes "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!"

    Hear that, Marty Isenberg? I AM WAITING.

    That Rodimus looks pretty damn awesome.

    Appearing in cartoon or not, I can't wait to see the toy that I really hope we still end up getting.

    Also, to state the obvious... love the Mario and Luigi styled Huffer and Pipes. :lol

    Don't forget how Vangelus greets them as they're enjoying a sunny day.

    "Greetings, obviously inferior yet inexplicably respected alien lifeforms. I am Sho-- Vangelus."

    Rodimus, Skygarry, Vangelus, and Botanica are my guesses. Also Huffer & Pipes look like Mario & Luigi, so I doubt that they would ever appear.

    Well we know that Rodimus Prime is real as he's already in the show so that's one accounted for. (I was hoping that he'd have the motorhome look tho.) As far as the others...

    Sky Gary - Nope. No Flying Autobots except the twins and the Omegas.
    Grandus - Maybe. Wasn't there a rumor that Grandus was going to be used in the show?
    AP Vangelus - Of all of them shown I'd pay $$ for this one to be true.
    Huffer - I wish. That is such a great idea that CN would never go for it.
    Pipes - I wish pt.2. Love the idea and am sad the toy will never be made. :( 
    Botanica - Maybe. She seems to be an older looking model Autobot, so I could see her as a council memeber.
    Tap-Out - Maybe. He seems to share a popular body style, I could see him as a background character.
    Zaur - Nope. No Blaster and no Autobot Beasts that we've seen so far (outside of the Dinobots) leads me to think this one is false but looks damn nice. (kudos Mr. Wyatt.)
    Slapper - Nope. An easy repaint of an existing model that works as a background Decepticon, but it would confuse kids as Spittor was only just introduced.
    Sundor - Nope. We haven't even seen Laserbeak yet.
    Flip-Sides - Maybe. My favorite of the bunch and an awesome looking character who may be helping Shockwave out. (she doesn't have to turn into a tape.)
    Shockwave - Yes. They made a toy of him so it's very possible that he get's that look durring his rampage across Cybertron.

    I hope if there is a comic in the future for this series, that Derrick plays a BIG role in it.
