    Unicron and Megatron are referring Optimus as the last of the Primes. But why is he the last of the Primes? I don't get it, I mean if Optimus dies someone becomes leader and will hold the Matrix so therefore he will be a Prime. I believe that their is never going to be a last Prime unless all other Autobots have died and their leader is the last one to live. Any thoughts?

    They've said that he's the last of the Primes in the show.

    No.

    Anyways- I'm guessing Primus or whoever has decided to do away with the system of Primes, considering it was Sentinel Prime's massive fuckup that essentially caused the war (the caste system wasn't always in place; Sentinel forced it into effect) and the suffering of many before the war. So Optimus is the last Prime, meant to undo the damage of his predecessors, and after him there'll be a new ruling system or whatever put into place.

    He is the current last of the Primes... Once he dies, the Matrix will be bestowed to one of his Autobot allies.

    The first issue during G2 was a repaint of the original G1 Optimus Prime. Came with a voice module that would play 'I am Optimus Prime' in a very devoneer tone.

    Because Optimus IS the last prime. As far as they know the 13 are dead and the only active acting Prime is him. He is literally the last guy that became a Prime. It's like when a book is talking about the previous chapter and it goes ON THE LAST CHAPTER.

    Pretty much this. The 13 are gone, faded into history. Optimus was the one chosen by Primus to take up by the mantle at the waning days of the war, and as such, he's the only one in present times.

    Unless you count Vector Prime (who's off chilling in his own pocket dimension) and Nexus Prime (who is scattered into his 5 components), Optimus is the only living Cybertronian with the title of Prime

    I think Optimus Prime being the last prime may has to do he is the last recorded living descendant of one of the original 13 Primes. If there are other Prime descendants they are from lines that have been long forgotten or belived to be extinct. Note this only a theory but for me a good one

    Why is it so hard to understand?

    It simple means FOR NOW he is the last of the Primes. As in he is the last, that is still alive. (Or known).
