    My first question is how many Primes are there really because I keep thinking there are 13 of em. As for my second question, if Optimus were to die in the Tformers movie once and for all would you accept it? Also which Prime would you have introduced to replace Optimus as Leader of the Autobots. I'd say Rodimus Prime.

    I dont know if there's a difference between the original "13" Primes and the Dynasty of Primes. There very well might be.

    The Thirteen Original Primes (That includes The Fallen), Optimus Prime, Sentinel Prime: 15 Primes, mentioned in Bay's chronology anyway.

    If Optimus died permanently, I would've accepted because all heroes have to die at some point in their lives. If Hot Rod didn't appear in Bay's chronology, then I would choose Sideswipe as the future Prime.

    He said "In the beginning, there were 7 Primes, our orginal leaders"

    7-The Fallen = 6 Primes that died to protect the Matrix of Leadership

    I'll be pissed if they kill off Optimus for good. Kill off Bumblebee and Ratchet, and hell, even Sideswipe. But a TF film with no Optimus doesn't seem right.

    Unlikely. They probably died or went offline before Optimus assumed command.

    Wow that's a jump in logic if I ever saw one!

    1.)You assuming that there are 13 Primes in the Bayvers. Seeing how much he changes I don't see why there would be.

    2.)In all Transformers canon other then the Bayvers there a 13 "Original" Primes. There are more after, but 13 to begin with.

    3.)In the Bayvers being a Prime is a birthright not something you just become. Over, and over it has been said that Optimus is the last of the Primes.

    I'm not saying it cant be done (movies change there back story all the time) just that what you said was a little out there. ;) 

    As for your first question I would not watch the movie if they killed off Optimus for good. He is the whole reason I watch them at all!!!!!

    Thanks
    Movie Prime

    If you are referring to the number of Original Primes in the Movieverse according to Jetfire there were 7. When the Fallen went bad the other 6 gave their lives and used their own bodies to create what was called "The Tomb of the Primes" to hide the Matrix from the Fallen. Their spirits lived on in the vessel known as the Allspark. When the Allspark was destroyed everything in the Allspark transferred to Sam. When Sam was brought back to life it all transferred to the Matrix. And so they live on in the Matrix. That's what I got from it anyway.

    If you are referring to how many Primes all together I was under the impression that Optimus was the only one still living as he has been referred to as "The Last Prime". But then in DOTM I was surprised with Sentinel Prime. So I suppose it's actually not known.

    What if Rodimus was introduced and turned into a Prime?

    I wouldn't accept Prime's death because he's an awesome fighter.
    If he did die, then I'd probably say either Rodimus or Ultra Magnus.

    in this universe nobody can turn into a prime, the priem must be a direct desedants of the 7 Primes, so onyl way to have rodimsu as a prime is he's one of their decedants (like optimus and sentunel)

    I think it was said that there were thirteen original Transformers, but only seven of those were actually Primes.

    They'd need some pretty special logic to introduce him, given it was acknowledged Sentinel and Optimus were the only ones left. I guess if Sentinel were offline somewhere, so could have been Rodimus, but it would require some new backstory.
