    So obviously, the only reason Rodimus was created was to succeed Prime, however, what if Prime didn't choose any of the new movie cast, what if instead he chose one of the already existing Transformers to become a Prime...?

    Personally, in this weird universe where new toys/money needs to be made, I would have chosen Ironhide. This would have led to Ironhide making some really bad choices. But for some reason giving his personality led the Autobots victory against the decepticons for some reason or another, mainly Ironhide's obbsession with war... Anyways, point of the thread:

    "If Prime was to choose anybody to take the Matrix in the 1986 movie, who would you rather of had, "the touch". "

    You are thinking too deep into this. If you think about every possibility, your head will explode. I've seen it happen it isn't pretty.

    Technically, it was the Matrix that chose Hot Rod. Prime chose Ultra Magnus. :p 


    However, I would probably say Prowl due to his logical and tactical mind. Of course, by Prowl, I mean pre-charred remains Prowl.

    Optimus did not choose anyone to become the next Prime.

    The Matrix chose.

    Jazzimus Prime. Like the jazz bebop trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, he'd work for the state department and bring diplomacy through music to earth, Cybertron, and the "outlying suburbs," as Hot Rod once said in Burden Hardest to Bear.

    IDK, Ultra Magnus always seemed to be the chosen one in my eyes.
    Hmm, what about Silverbolt?

    Spike. The Matrix would have destroyed logic to give Spike power. Spikemus Prime, our leader. Video games would be our guns. Construction work would be our pass time.

    But seriously, Prowl.

    I'm going to go out in left field here......

    I agree with folks that The Matrix, not Optimus, chose the next Prime. Optimus passed the matrix to Ultra Magnus to be the steward until the next Prime would rise.

    that said.....

    I always thought Sky Lynx would be an interesting choice as leader. I realize this might be a bit of a strange choice to some, but his calm demeanor, and courage in battle seem to make him a natural choice from where I sit.
