    Do you think Optimus should start mentioning autobots in phrases like I could use Ironhide or Its not the same without Jazz?

    Nah. Why mention Jazz when we can have Jazz?

    Jazz may well have a Prime model of sorts if he's in one of the new Videogames such as 'Evolution'.

    I thought, that Jazz was killed in the 1st movie. I refer to "Ironhide's" thread.

    I'm glad the series metioned Perceptor in S1. In season 2, the episode "Loose Cannons" Wheeljack mentions some members of the Wreckers. (Example: Roadbuster.etc)

    So hopefully, more Autobot names are going to be mentioned.

    No. Why randomly mention characters who don't appear offhand when he has plenty of actual characters to mention?

    Pretty sure they died before hand, but yeah.

    If they mention guys like Jazz in too specific of a context, then the show will essentially be forced to maintain that canon, at least in some way, and that might not be in the story's best interest. However, Beasties/Beast Wars was really good at being vague enough to drop hints without falling into this trap (heck, they had Unicron & much of the season 1 ending footage in the season 1 opening without spoiling shit), so hopefully Prime can do the same, especially if they just use words.

    Agreed.

    Ergo, SHUT UP, WHEELJACK! Don't you dare utter Jazz's name!

    He proabably will later on. I'm still waiting for either him or the other Autobots to mention Grimlock and the Dinobots! :D

    I wouldn't mind more Wreckers being name dropped


    Wheeljack: "Hey guys, you ever heard of Topspin, Twin Twist, Whirl, Broadside, Guzzle, Ironfist, or Rack'n'Ruin? Well they're all dead."

    You have no idea. I laughed out loud when Ratchet referenced Bantor. I never laugh out loud.

    Edit: Stardust ninja'd me, I was talking to Maximo Prime.

    We've already had plenty of pointless name drops. The Fallen, Fortress Maximus, the Wreckers. I don't think we need more.
