One thing I've noticed since I started hanging round the Prime board on TFW, is that people always seem to want new characters to join the cast. From the recent Constructicon rumour to fan reaction when Prime Prowl and Barricade were first revealed, the general consensus always seemed to be that new characters would be great. Personally, I genuinely abhor the thought of adding more Bots to the main cast at this stage. I am less adverse to the idea of more Cons, simply because villains generally don't get as much screen time and development anyway. But in regard to the protagonists, I feel that there's still so much to do with them, that a new bot would simply dilute the cast and story, not strengthen it. However, this has always been my approach to stories in general, not just Transformers. I've long felt that smaller, tighter casts are superior to their bloated counterparts. So really, my question is why does everyone always seem to want new robots running around in Prime? This isn't meant to be flamebait or a pointless internet argument; I genuinely don't understand why there always seems to be this huge demand for new characters, and would really like to know why.
