    We've speculated for years that he was either Ironhide or Ultra Magnus, but Hasbro has made it official. I noticed this during the "Hall of Fame" thread, and am surprised no one else has said it. Even on the podcast.

    Wasn't Dion Orion Pax's best friend in "War Dawn"?

    um... well that is kind of out of left field, as far as who is Dion.

    I just don't think that was their intention with that, but who knows...

    It's just weird.

    ITS A DIFFERENT CONTINUITY.

    Dion was his best friend in the G1 toon continuity.

    Jazz is his best friend in what ever continuity the Hall of Fame was refranceing.

    The Hall of Fame continuity is a weird, ill-considered fusion continuity (Cyber-Ninja???)... they did that for Soundwave as well. Not sure I like it.

    Plus I always felt like Jazz should be younger, and that Optimus should be an older bot, closer (though not as old as) to Ironhide's vintage. His later inner circle like Jazz and Prowl feel like they should have come afterwards.

    Jazz became his closest friend after Dion died like a chump and was scrapped for parts to rebuild Prime and Elita-1. There, paradox averted.

    Exactly, besides, over millions of years I'd say it's more than possible to have more than one "best friend". David Wise, the writer, spoke about Dion on a Moonbase 2 Podcast. He pronounced the name as "Die On" and stated that Dion did indeed die and wasn't rebuilt into Ironhide, Jazz or anyone else.

    Except that after Dion "died", Orion Pax became Optimus Prime. The bio clearly says he was Orion Pax's closest friend. For your theory to be true, it would have to say Optimus Prime's closest friend.

    Well, he was such a nice guy, and Orion Pax didn't want to hurt Dion's feeling because Jazz was so much cooler.

    But yeah...the Dion thing is from the G1 cartoon only. It never made the Marvel comics or anything.

    HoF is a brand new continuity. Hasbro barely knows what's going on with their own characters.

    Well, so was the whole Orion Pax thing. Since this refers to that, it puts it with the cartoon. So the comic doesn't matter in this case.

    I see the HoF continuity as a smashing of G1 together, without making it air tight.

    Except Jazz was never a cyber ninja in G1. The HoF stuff is a mish-mash of multiple continuities.

    Yeah, my bad. I knew that, just wasn't thinking all the way when I posted. My point still stands though. They pulled the Orion Pax thing from the G1 toon, so in this continuity, Dion is Jazz.

    No in this continuity...Jazz was Orions best friend....and as far as we know, Dion never existed

    As far as we know, Jazz takes Dion's place in this, and I'm using this loosely, "continuity". You're assuming too much.

    Even if he is Dion in this "universe", it means jack squat towards all the other series.

    Hey, here's a concept you don't seem to be considering: you can have more than one best friend!

    Oh, and here's another one: you can have a new best friend if your old one kicks the bucket!

    You know, there've been G1 continuities where either Ironhide, Prowl, or Jazz have been labeled as Prime's best friend. Considering Prime, I wouldn't be surprised if he regards all of them as his best friend.

    He was orion pax only in G1 in no other continuity was he orion before optimus. So jazz therefore must be Dion.

    Your "facts" are in error...so your conclusion is flawed.

    G1 toon continuity Orion Pax.

    G1 Dreamwave Continuity Optronix was his name....but he was Orion to his friends.

    In the IDW G1 continuity,The young [before the war] Optimus shares a very similar apparance Orion Pax and Optronix but no name was given to that version of him yet.

    Its also my understanding [correct me if Im wrong] that in the "War For Cybertron" continuity he was Orion Pax.

    No less we have seen plenty of different G1-ish alternate continuities over the years.We dont know who became who in any of those.

    And as stated.....the Hall of fame seems to be mixing all the continuities into a new one.
