    What would be your ideal Transformers cast line-up if you were only allowed 5 Autobots and 6 Decepticons?


    Mine would be:

    Autobots:
    Optimus Prime
    Hot Shot
    Wheeljack
    Ratchet
    Hound

    Decepticons:
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Soundwave
    Demolishor
    Blackout
    Astrotrain

    Magnus
    Prowl
    Sideswipe
    Rachet
    Hound

    Megaplex
    Starscream
    Skywarp
    Thundercracker
    Soundwave
    Ramjet
    Ravage

    Both teams would be trying to find the Ark and Nemesis on Earth, which would leave it easy to introduce characters later.

    I actually made a list like this just the other day. Unfortunately it's fifteen each so I can't list everyone. If I were to choose the absolute best set up to start with I'd pick:

    Autobots:

    Optimus Prime
    Cliffjumper(Prime)
    Arcee(Prime)
    Jetfire(Animated but older)
    Red Alert(Animated)
    Jazz(Animated)

    Decepticons:

    Megatron
    Starscream(Prime)
    Knockout(Prime)
    Strika
    Antagony
    Blitzwing(Animated)

    New characters would be introduced later but the first season would focus primarily on these groups.

    Ironhide
    Bumblebee
    Jazz
    Ratchet
    Wheeljack
    Sunstreaker

    vs.

    Thundercracker
    Skywarp
    Astrotrain
    Blitzwing
    Runamuck
    Runabout

    This should be an interesting mix, based upon capabilities & characteristics ;

    Autobots:
    Optimus Prime for Leadership & tactical force
    Skyfire for superior air support without a fear of heights
    Cosmos for tactical intel & worldwide recon
    Ratchet to fix things & transportation of supplies
    Wheeljack to engineer solutions & acrobatic racing
    Springer (FP version) for the versatile warrior he is

    Decepticons:
    Scorponok for Leadership, brute force & his ingenious, sly plans
    Dreadwind for insane manoeuvrability & his overcompensating vigor for manic depressions
    Blitzwing versatile force in the air and on the ground
    Swindle for his sly negotiations & uncanny ability to come up with all the best weapons
    Bombshell for his masterful manipulations & diversions
    Apeface for his intimidating assaults of violence

    As you can see, I gave the Autobots some more power in the air to start with.
