    We hear so much from the people making the show that the budget prevents them from just adding characters all the time, because it costs so much to build them from scratch. So far in season 2, the only new bot they've made is the Insecticon, (as Dreadwing is a re-use of Skyquake) unless I'm missing someone...

    Season 1 added Skyquake, Knock out, Arachnid, Breakdown, Wheeljack, and Unicron (not including the once from the 5 part opening, which was apparently budgeted separately).

    So if they could add 5 new character models in season 1, why have we gotten only 1 new one in season 2? Either they cut the budget (hopefully not) or this season's going to add a bunch of new 'bots for whatever multi-parter is going to end the season...

    (also: I haven't seen yesterday's episode yet, so please don't spoil it for me, especially if they add a bunch of new guys!)

    It's a joke about the 2012 (End of the World) conspiracy theory.

    They're very likely saving a bunch of new guys for the latter half of the season. We know for a fact we're at least getting Shockwave.

    In the end, the point was that whenever episode 16 airs and since it's apparently after the Relic Arc, it should have some new character.

    That's a good point. He slipped my mind as he's not appeared yet.

    There is going to one more autobot being added to the cast according to josh keaton facebook the voice of Jack Kirby. I also think someone said the saw Shockwave in a video with Arcee and Cliffjumper.

    The movieverse and prime arent meant to be connected but i'm sure they have a influence on the characters they use in prime. I reckon pretty much orci and kurtzman had ironhide instead of bulkhead but knowing he would be killed off in TF3 went with bulky. Thet'll probably be waiting on the major characters for TF4 before introducing more. Though shockwave arriving at the end of season pretty much blows my argument i've already typed it up : )

    The thread title did say character models and didn't do a good job of being broader.

    I don't recall, "them" promising a lot of new characters, so I wouldn't keep your hopes up. ^^

    Too bad the ancient Mayan mural they just unearthed disproved the whole end of the Mayan calender thing anyhow.
