    I don't really think movie Prime is always that noble lol... Just look how he raged out in the forest in ROTF!! And I also thought he cared a bit less about his troops, more about protecting people... I mean, just look at how Jazz went... He was like; "We lost an ally, but gained many..." Okay. So Jazz dies, and you just say: That's okay, we have some new soldiers. Not very Prime-ish... But in his speeches, he's always very noble and wise, I guess. lol

    The Biggest thing missing from movie Prime is the father-like relationship G1 Prime had with his troops, humans, and audience. Prime protected his own, but also shared wisdom and an ear with his subordinants and humans. They weren't canon-fodder, they were family. Fighting the Decepticons was honestly the last thing Prime wished to do. He'd rather foil their plans by out manuvering or unplugging, for the life of every cybertronian was special to him. This belief ultimately lead to his own death in the 1986 movie.

    Bay's Prime has no such beliefs. His race is facing extinction, but he doesn't bother to blink when blowing the brains out of a decepticon. His first response to any situation is violence, even if it puts humans in danger. He's WAY too stoic. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that Prime in the movies is WAY TOO powerful, so they have to find ways to distance him from the rest (much like Xavier in the X-Men movies).

    I can see where you're coming from, but I think it comes down to two very similar Primes in two fairly different circumstances. G1 Prime was a noble, selfless leader trying to save his race from extinction, but, if you go by the G1 canon, there was also a laaaaaaarge amount of Transformers out and about. In terms of Movie canon (i.e. just the movies, not the IDW E.U. comics or anything), Prime only knows of about sub-20 Autobots total. All of his friends and soldiers are dead, save about 20, and a few of those have died while serving directly under his command. Having people you are supposed to take care of die is hard for a leader. So many of his people have died, that he has become, as you said, more stoic. I think, underneath it all, he's the same noble, fatherly figure that G1 Prime is, but G1 Prime didn't have to deal with the constant death of his friends. That is why Movie Prime fights so fiercely. He's fighting to protect all he has left.

    I probably wouldn't have even bothered seeing the movies if Cullen wasn't voicing Prime.

    It's so evident how much he cares about the integrity of the character. I wish we had more of that across the board.... in this franchise and others. A tip of the hat to the man.

    You are confusing PRIME Prime who actually has interactions with his soliders and friends. Movie Prime would more than likely say "...the f**k?!" and backhand you. :D

    And let's not forget that, once G1 Prime's troops DID start dropping like flies (*coughTFTMcough*), he realized he had to put an end to the whole thing "no matter the cost", be it to himself or Megatron's life. Hell, en route to Megs, he ended up mowing down a few 'cons - even swerving to try and hit Blitzwing - and blasted Dirge a few extra times for good measure once he transformed.
