    Since all 13 of the original guys haven't been revealed to us, I suggest we fill in some blanks and make up our own! You can give the name, what their specialties are, anything you want really. Let's see what kind of original 13 members we can come up with!

    Am I correct in assuming this is for a new cartoon series? If so then who has been revealed?

    Nah, I just wanted to see other people's ideas on the rest of the original 13 guys.

    Are Vector Prime and The Fallen the only first 13 that we know of?

    I think it's been said (not sure by whom, so it's probably nowhere near official ) that Macaddams of "Maccaddams Old Oil House" is one of the thirteen as well.

    There's also the club-combiner dude and some wacko that disguises himself as Soundblaster.

    Psst, don't give the one true fan any ideas. His ego is big enough already ;-)

    13 Original? That's easy: Vector Prime, Prima, The Fallen, Logos Prime, Nexus Maximus, Liege Maximo, Maccadam, Alpha Trion, Sideswipe, Bossa Nova, Dopey, Bashful, and Steve.

    Cheddarus Prime - Transdimensional master of all things Cheesy in Transformers. Placed in charge of comedy aspects of the Transformersverse by Primus to keep thing from getting too serious. He is responsible for nearly every thing that ever made a fan groan... Marvel Grimlocks' Burger King crown, UK comics Optimus Prime in a Santa suit, and of course he made Professor Princess. He is still a wanted mech in some sectors of space for his creation of Kiss Players and the ending theme lyrics to Transformers: Victory.

    In the Animated Universe, if it even has the original thriteen, I could totally see Sensei Yoketron and Alpha Trion being among them. There's also the whole story line in the Revenge of the Fallen about Optimus Prime being the last Prime (not sure if the Dynasty of Primes is the same as the Thirteen) so I guess one could assume that the movie basically implies that Optimus Prime is in fact the sole surviving member of the Thirteen along with the Fallen himself. That's just my two cents.

    I heard somewhere that one interpretation of why there were only seven "Primes" in the movie-verse is that they are the remaining members of the Thirteen who haven't shown up or been named elsewhere.

    The "official" members of the 13 are:

    Vector Prime
    Prima
    Logos Prime (AKA: "Soundblaster")
    Nexus Maximus
    The Fallen

    That's 5. The other 8 are unnamed and unseen (so far).

    Assuming that Maccadam and the Leige Maximo are members (as they are often implied to be), then that leaves 6. There just so happen to have been 6 unnamed "Primes" seen in the movie-verse alongside The Fallen.

    It kinda makes sense. Explains the change in number from 13 to 7 at least.

    Optimus was/is NOT a member of the "First Thirteen/Seven". He's an orphaned descendant of the "Dynasty of Primes" which began with the First Seven/Thirteen. He's basically the "great-grandchild" of a Prime (in a Cybertronian sense).

    See, that's what I thought, but just wasn't sure about.
