Who would you like to see as main cast members on each side in the next Transformers series? What kind of personalities should they have? Please limit each side to a 5-7 member core cast (similar to what they did with Animated). Remember, tons of core characters means less time for each of them to get development. My Picks: Autobots: -Optimus Prime: Leader of the Autobots. Noble, yet flawed individual. In other words, he's not the Mr. Perfect of the G1 cartoon. However, he's also not the type who would blow himself up over a video game. -Ironhide: The weapons specialist; close friend and bodyguard to Prime. Takes many cues from Movie Ironhide. -Bumblebee: A young bot with an unusual talent for espionage. -Wheeljack: The wacky mad scientist, and medic of the group. A sort-of fusion of G1 Wheeljack and Animated Ratchet. -Blaster: Communications officer, and an all-around fun guy. -Grimlock: A bruiser. Notably does not turn into a dinosaur. Only refers to himself in the third person when extremely stressed. -Nightbeat- The odd man of the group; the one who doesn't fit in. A gritty detective-type. Decepticons: -Megatron: Supreme Overlord of the Decepticons. A master of warfare and tactics. Prefers to operate mostly from behind the scenes, and through the actions of his enforcer, Cyclonus. If you face him in combat, though, look out. -Starscream: Commander of the masses of the Decepticon Army. Was Megatron's protegee for years, rising through the ranks and amassing more power. Charismatic and popular with his troops, he longs for the day when he no longer has to take orders from a leader whom he thinks of as cowardly. -Cyclonus: Megatron's personal assassin and enforcer. Assigned by Megatron to monitor Starscream's campaign against Prime's Autobot unit. Despised by Starscream (the feeling is mutual). -Bombshell: A twisted scientist and manipulator. Firmly in Starscream's pocket. -Soundwave: Communications specialist and Megatron loyalist. Can manipulate sonic waves to produce a variety of effects. -Bonecrusher: Pretty much Movie Bonecrusher. Hates just about everything, but follows orders because he hates those who give the orders less than those who he is unleashed against. -Ratbat: Decepticon scout, who dreams of a bigger part to play.
