It just isn't a "Transformers" line, without a "Prowl."

    Okay, I hardly come in here, but I thought I'd throw in my "randomness." EVERY TF line that has been out has had a Prowl in it. Either in toy form, or in toy and animated form.

    So, where is the movie figure for Prowl?

    Prowl is a pretty boring character, so the first movie is better off without him. He'll show up eventually, I'm sure.

    What about Cybertron? I can't say as I can see a Prowl in there (unless I missed a Minicon or something).
    And he's not in Beast Machines either, come to think of it. Generation 2 looked like it did just fine without him.
    Transformers is more than just one character. It's a group of characters. Autobots and Decepticons. The only two big ones are Optimus and Megatron. Even Starscream isn't necessary (though his archetype is there 99% of the time).

    From what I gathered Barricade was originally supposed to be some kind of Evil Prowl, but appearantly they changed that.

    Eh, Prowl wasn't in Cybertron and there's been a couple of lines without him. They do tend to have a toy of him every year or so (whether it's in the mainline or one of the sidelines like Alternators or Universe), because it's a semi-generic name and I'm pretty sure they want to be able to continue to use it.

    And, like someone above mentioned, Prowl is a pretty boring character. It's like Cyclops to the upteenth level of tightassism (yeah, not a real word, sue me). So, I'd say the movie is probably better off without him. Using Jazz as the second-in-command (though I'd have preferred Jetfire and am surprised that he isn't in the movie considering he's been a major player in the last couple of series) is pretty snazy and harkens back to MTMTE Episodes 1.

    Who knows, maybe they'll put him in the second movie?

    If there ever was an Autobot second in command, it's Ultra Magnus, not Jetfire.

    It's hard to establish a clear hierarchy of Autobot leaders, but I believe the Big 4 are Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus, Cerebros (later Fortress Maximus), and Countdown. Rodimus Prime eventually replaces Optimus.

    Field commanders are Prowl, Grimlock, Pointblank, Jazz, and maybe Jetfire (going by IDW storyline here.

    Then there are the special teams captains like Hotspot, Silverbolt, and Scattershot.

    At least this my own speculation. Hard to say with the Autobots, I think that the Decepticons always had a clearer hierarchy.

    Well, I guess if this movie were G1 than that heiarchy would work, but it's not. As far as Jetfire goes... it seems more logical considering that he's been in Ultra Magnus' position for the last three cartoons and the movie is clearly some weird pull and idea from here, there and everywhere type of deal. But, hey, Jazz is the man... and he is called Prime's second-in-command in the leaked script.

    I'd say Grimlock...

    I'd love it if the movie featured Prowl...

    and love the post about him being the Cyclops of the Transformers.

    Hot damn!

    If I had 300 million dollars lying around I'd finance a movie starring Keifer Sutherland as Prowl right out of my own pocket!

    Keifer as Prowl would go together better than the rough corner on a stone wall and the itchy spot in the middle of your back that you can't reach!

    Damn, everybody in Carbombia would be dead in under 24 hours. It would rock.
