    I am 100% fine with the new G1-esque Decepticons, especially since its not just Soundwave and Skywarp but digging a little deeper into the mythos with Cyclonus and Bludgeon. I really hope Bludgeon is an unholy badass. I'm also happy to see that it appears that this show is expanding its scope a little.

    But, I think it would be incredibly dumb to ditch the animal aesthetic entirely. There's still old characters who could come back and play a role. Steeljaw especially, or Thunderhoof, Springload, Bisk, Clampdown, Scorponok, and others.

    I just hope the combiner is beast-like. Monstructor could be sweet. They can't abandon the roots they've established.

    That'd just weak and honestly I'd lose a lot of respect for the production staff if they set aside they're own vision just because a vocal minority bitched a whole lot.

    Split it half half. Some new animal OC Decepticons, and some G1 homage Cons too.

    Plus animal Autobots too.

    Yes.

    I hope the Decepticon Combiner Team is the Constructicons.

    Since Skywarp has an upcoming toy, it's possible that he will appear in season three. If he does appear, how do you think his character will be executed? Do you think they'll go the Animated route and have him be a clone of Starscream? Or have him just be a new character? Do you think he'll be connected to Cyclonus? And do you think Thundercracker will show up as well? Or do you think that he won't even appear and will just be a toy-only character?


    *posts merged, please edit original post, we prefer folks don't post 2 or more posts in a row, thanks.

    If he appears I think he would be a new character.
    Starscream already tryed cloning in Prime and it resulted in exakt copies. I don´t see why it wuold have a different efekt this time.

    Maybe Cyclonus or someone else would do the cloning and it will have a different effect for some reason (they used some of their own CNA?). Or maybe they'll just clone Starscream and give the clone a different paint job. Anything's possible I guess. If he's a new character though, the writers will have to explain why he has the same body type as Starscream.

    I thought he was alive at first, but TFWiki says that was an error and still describes him as having died when he was eaten by the Sharkticons in the Retribution novel.

    Actually, RiD 2015 ignores everything except Prime. This is why characters like Kickback (who died in FoC) can show up in RiD 2015 and why Grimlock is nothing like his character was in FoC.

    Pretty much. If you see anything in the HMS games or Novels or the CoP do yourself a favor and ignore it immediately. Hasbro/Staff of Prime/RiD2015 didn't give a shit about continuity so why should we?

    Anyways, I hope Skywarp isnt a Starscream clone. Seems dull at this point. I hope he isnt a coward either. Lets face it, professional teleporter and pusher-of-bots-down-stairs Skywarp is best Skywarp.

    Since they can come up with new origins for characters and ignore the novel ones, what if the RiD writers changed it so that Starscream was actually a clone of Skywarp???

    He was. Maybe the RiD writers will keep that part of his character intact and have him become a rival to Drift.

    Why would we need an explanation? We already have other recolors with out an reason.

    I phrased that badly. What I mean is like, the Autobots will probably comment on how he has the same body type as Starscream and that will lead to some kind of explanation as to why he looks like Starscream.

    There is no need, it could just be like in G1 and the Cybertron videogames, where all Seekers have the same body type.

    Actually, he didn't die in FoC. He was trapped under a door. He didn't appear again until a Prime tie-in comic (written by the same people who wrote the show).

    I mean it's possible. It just seems unlikely to me that no one will say that he looks kind of like Starscream.

    Oops. I thought that the door killed him and that his appearance in the comic was a continuity error.

    I would love it if we could somehow get the Starseekers in there with the whole rumoured corrupt council plot.
    I always loved that concept and they where supposed to be in Prime had it continued so i feel they might as well introduce them in RID.

    No, 2.5 is listed as 3.

    Cartoon Network airs "Out of Fokus", "Sideways" and "History Lessons".
    Nick airs Worthy.

    I got that from Fernsehserien.de.
