    Besides looking like Cylons there was something else about the Vehicons I can't place finger to until now... They look like Prime Decepticon versions of the Animated Autotroopers. (Lets not mention that K?)

    If Prime takes its cue from WFC with mass produced bots would you appreciate a version of Autotrooper? At very least in large scale battle flashback during the war on Cybertron.

    Ask Jose Lopez!

    But probably not, no. I doubt the crew's even heard of them.

    No. Only similarity between the two, is the fact that they are cannon fodder.

    As for the idea of Autotroopers showing up in TFP, I think it would be interesting, but I don't expect it to happen.

    I'd think the Vehicons were likely more inspired by the Vehicons (BM) then the Autotroopers.

    They don't look that similar. IMO, the Vehicons (I kind of liked Eradicons too, though Vehicons works as well) resemble the standard 'Con troopers from WFC (continuity! )
