    How would you feel if TFP Optimus got a jetpack like the one in DotM? I think it would be cool.

    Sure, paint some flames on him while we're at it. Oh and give him brass knuckles and a nose and maybe, just maybe have him kill Decepticons without mercy or hesitation. That's what makes a true Prime.



    Nah jk A Jetpack would be pretty cool. :)

    Yeah, I definitely don't want him to turn into movie Optimus. That would ruin everything I like about this version of him. I just think the jetpack would look boss!

    Maybe Wheeljack could make him one when he comes back.

    Yes. Have Wheeljack and Ratchet weaponize that trailer we saw in Convoy and Partners. I really liked the concept of a weapon tech-trailer (like in DotM).

    Maybe if he were like Movie Prime he'd have a personality.

    Yes, but maybe not all the time, specialized mission gear or something.

    My thoughts exactly. A great way to introduce the "engineer/mechanic" aspect of Wheeljack. He could be tinkering with Prime's trailer, trying to weaponize it.

    ZING!

    This. That's one of the things that I despised about RID/the Unicron trilogy; the constant use of a super mode. 95% of the time. Gosh. It's alright once in a while, but it just got repetitive.

    Exactly. And the creators did say there would be more space travel this season, so that's a perfect reason to have one!

    Not like movie Prime but also a la TFA??? Not saying that the TFP folks couldn't come up with a nice story for him getting one, heck maybe they steal something from the MECH bunch or Ratchet just starts 'tinkering" again...but in the meantime, I'd rather the Autobots get a true aerialbot...one who doesn't need no stinkin' jet packs or other add ons. :D

    Optimus has yet to lose a fight (barring the Unicron avatars, where all of a sudden Megatron's cannon becomes lethal). Given flight capabilities in robot mode, when no other TFer has done in the show yet, it'd be giving an overpowered character an incredible edge over an already handicapped foe.

    No. We need new ideas. Not just to rip off what's come before.

    Nah, let's just keep him completely boring and generic in every way and not bother taking any risks for the sake of making him more than just a prop.

    I'd rather weaponize Prime than make him fly. Megs doesn't fly in robot mode, and rarely engages Prime in combat in the skies. Along with weaponizing Prime, he could "armor-up", and here's hoping the Powermaster angle can tapped into and used. *cough* TRAILER *cough*

    I do hope they release a toy at some point with a "suit of armor" for Optimus Prime. Take the Optimus Prime Deluxe from the multi-pack and develop some kind of trailer-armor system for it.

    Another aspect of the armor could be that the flight aspect is conspicuous. You can't tell it's capable of flight until you unfold some panels and BOOM gigantic wings and thrusters appear behind him. A lot of the armor and parts for the trailer would be spring loaded, so when you attach it to the main Prime they unfold into cannons, wings, armor panels, etc.

    I think It'd be cool to see him utilize a sort of armor that enables flight~ ^.^

    I'd prefer him not to. Dont get me wrong, I like the jet-pack prime, but I would like to keep it out of this series b/c hes Great just the way he is:D
