    I know Prowl has a spotlight episode coming up, but who thinks the writers are sidelining our favorite lone-wolf and nature-loving ninjabot? I mean in Season 1 he had a cool moment in almost every episode yet in S2 he's getting sidlined. :mad 
    I mean after all he's a cool guy who could be the next BW Dinobot.

    Oh really? What about Ratchet that only got 2 episodes so far and most of the time he's just doing grumpy things in the background?

    Oh and he's nothing compared to Dinobot, just to let you know.

    Every character gets "sidelined" once in a while when you have shows with more than 4 characters.

    Well, Prowl's not the kid character so he's not gong to get the love of BB or Bulkhead. Prime's the leader, so he gets his time. That leaves Ratchet and Prowl for the occasional ep or guy in background appearance.

    Bah, for being the leader, even Optimus Prime gets sidelined a lot. Everybody gets sidelined a lot, because you need to introduce new toys, aka animated characters.

    How do you know that he might be the first casualty of Great War Two? Either him or Sentinel.

    Also, he has the potential to be as almost as awesome as BW Dinobot.

    While he may be getting sidelined, we do know that in the near future, he's getting sidecar'd

    Man AniProwl is all you do is complain about Animated? And shroobmaster I have to disagree. Prowl is better than Dinobot. BW characters bore me. I never understand why everyone liked him so much.

    Calm yourself you two. Sidewipe, It's just that I'm in the questioning phase of watching Animated especially after the diappointing Blurr episode I was looking forward to since he was announced in the show. I'm starting to wonder if I should continue watching it and buy the toys starting next month as well as some Classics. Tell you what, from now on I won't look forward to any episode. I'll just wait paitiently on YouTube for it starting next season since spoilers have been given away for the next seven episodes except Sari, No One's Home. I think me looking forward toward something causes it to look bad (For example: I was so hyped up about Spidey 3 that I brought my whole family along and then once the movie was over, I was like what a waste of $30(?)! ) I hope this isn't true about Animated as I try to enjoy this awesome show. AWESOME ANIMATED!

    That wasn't Blurr's intro episode. Ever hear of something called a bit of mystery? He will show up again torwards the end of season 2.

    He may even show up in Season 3 which has been greenlit.

    Dinobot is better than Prowl.

    Because he died for honor, and died for you ;_______________;

    If it wasn't for him humanity wouldn't EXIST!

    I don't think he can.

    And Dinobot is way better than Prowl. You know you've made a great character when you're genuinely sad he died and never "reallly" came back save a clone who acted nothing like him until his spark was "repaired". (Even though it wasn't his, he made it his, HE'S JUST THAT GOOD)

    Dinobot's the one and only ultimate BAMF. Prowl is also BAMFish, but he's more of the ninja type than the warrior type. I dig Prowl, and can't wait to see him get some more action (SIDECAR?).

    The truth is, Prowl HAS gotten sidelined.

    But it will end soon.

    I laughed when Dinobot died. I didn't miss him at all.

    everyone gets sidelined a episode or two, they come back to the front eventually.

    As for the internet spoilers, all I do is look at the character screen caps(shockwave, ect.) I want to see or if I have a speculation(Sari) I'll check against it. But as for storylinewise, I avoid reading so I don't miss the trip. And if I do spoil the trip, just makes me want to see it all the more.

    Forgive me if I ramble, 3:30 am and I can't sleep so I might just mumble across the boards lol
