    I know he's a dick and all, but, how did he become leader of the group? I don't remember Prime putting him in command.

    Prime did put him in command in the first ep lol.

    "You are right to question what is best for you team, Heatwave. That is why I'm asking you to lead this mission."

    Totally unrelated but since this is in continuity with the Prime cartoon I want a Transformers Prime Heatwave toy (and the other three bots as TFP toys too).

    I'd love to see that too, especially in the Cyberverse line... Commanders, of course. :)

    Quite a few people want this lol...and with the supposed crossover, I'm hoping for Prime versions of all of them.

    Totally agree prime versions of the rescue bots would be awesome! Back on topic, heatwave is a pretty big jerk. You'd think chase would have been more likely, both as a rule guy and as the chief's bot.

    Eta: if there are prime versions I'd kind of want them as voyagers.

    He acts like a jerk, but deep down he cares about his fellow bots and doing his job. And I think half of the reason he acts like a jerk is because he's got a douchebag human that he can't really do anything about, so maybe he takes some of his frustration out on the bots. There's other things too to make him probably act the way he does (dealing with humans, pretending to be robots, sticky fingers, etc).

    I think Prime saw Heatwave's passion and "fiery" personality as a plus. Chase is way too by-the-book. If Chase were in charge, Heatwave would always question his orders. Chase respects protocol enough to follow an atypical leader like HW. Plus, tasking the "rebel" with the responsibility of leadership tends to dampen that rebellious streak. Some nice executive management jujitsu there by Optimus, especially since he's not around to micro-manage.

    Jeff Kline said there would be a crossover in one of the interviews he did with Steve Blum.

    I agree with this too. Someone mentioned in another thread as well that it seemed maybe Heatwave and Chase have known each other for a while, cause Chase seems to know and put a cap on any tempers Heatwave about has.

    Any crossover would have to be in Rescue Bots, because TFP would require entire CGI renders. Even if an episode of RB had Agent Fowler in it (maybe the same one that'll have Bumblebee can have Raf).

    I'm kinda hoping for both really. A lot of people would love to see Prime versions of all the Rescue Bots (I think a Prime Heatwave would be pretty badass looking).

    Oh, that would be awesome, but I don't think it would ever happen due to budget...

    Pauly and Maxxie, I think that's about right. The same thing occurred to me while I rewatched the Flobsters on Parade. A lot of situations the team faces probably couldnt be solved with Chase's pure order/rules. Heatwave is rebellious enough to look for alternate solutions. Chase wouldnt unless he was ordered to.

    I just realized that Heatwave is a bit like G1 Hot Rod in the comics.
