I'm sure this has been done to death, but I haven't seen any recent threads about it, so...
Between the two, Optimus by far. I've never liked Rodimus.
That said, I'm really keen on the fan theory that's been thrown round the Prime forum a few times of Arcee possibly succeeding Optimus as a Prime in future. I for one, would be totally down for Arcee Prime.
Seeing as how everyone has convinced me that G1 Optimus is a hapless pussy who won't take a shot, I'd be willing to give Rodimus a try.
Yes! I love that!
I like both, but given that old Rodimus is going to get slaughtered, and I'm just a tad sick of Optimus and Megs having to be the main team leaders we deal with I'll throw it to Rodimus for the poll.
Optimus was more likable but I didn't mind Rodimus.
I found it hilarious how when Rodimus finally got used to being a leader, Optimus replaces him in the next episode.
As a kid, hated Hot Rod and Rodimus.
As an adult
Still love Prime
Hot Rod is ok
they both have there pros and cons optimus is the ultimate surigate dad figure for many nurturing and selflessly protecting and whatnot, but then again he does give too many sanctimonious speeches which if are not wrote well could kill the fun in any continuanity. Rodimus is the moody growing pains prime which leaves more room for character development and makes a good contrast to his pious predeseser, but if he was invented nowadays he would instantly get the nickname emo-prime he could even write moany songs about how his girlfriend left him for springer.
I vote arcee(from transformers prime series) for prime she the best transformers character quite possibly ever
If we're going off the cartoon, Optimus wins. But, if we're going by the comics, it's a tie. When I'm talking comics, I'm specifically talking about the Marvel ones, because I haven't read enough of the IDW ones to form an opinion.
I'm gonna say Rodimus. I haven't seen much of him in the comics but I actually like his portrayal in the cartoon. He was a very flawed character who really wasn't cut out to be leader which made things more interesting. Optimus just felt too perfect to me...
UK Comic Hot Rod is all types of Win, can't say much for Rodimus. Prime seems to be prime regardless of wether you're watching the cartoon or comics, which I find to be strange. Seems like he's a universal character. That said, my vote is for Optimus.
I think I gotta go with Rodimus Prime. With a few exceptions, Optimus' character is pretty much the same across the board. I like that Rodimus wasn't the greatest leader, and had doubts about himself. I'd like to see that explored more.
Rodimus all the way! I love Optimus too, but Rod is a much more interesting character.
Rodimus Prime. It is a shame no continuity other than Beast Wars has shown a character grow from "teenager" to leader because Rodimus Prime could use it.
Plus I really want this IP to be strong enough that you don't NEED to have Optimus and Megatron in it. Another popular Prime would help that.
Hot Rod -> he is the chosen one.
He lit their darkest hour.
Rodimus prime is a more identifiable prime flawed like any human has self doubt thrust into a leadership role he did not want or ask for and doing a good job at it as well.
