    We've seen it all.

    In G1, rebellious teen bot Hot Rod, upon releasing the Matrix, sort of 'morphed' into truck mode Rodimus Prime. In Energon, puny Wingsaber was revived to a mega bot as we've known now. Megatron, as in G1 cartoon, was granted a smoking-hot body by big daddy yo Unicron and called Galvanita. I mean, Galvatron.

    Any potential upgrades we can look into for the other not-too-lucky bots? And in what instances, should it happened? And what new names shall they be called?

    Optimus Prime should've come back as Powermaster Optimus Prime, just like he did in the comics.

    What's the point of fighting when you can just be revived?

    But I did like DotM Wheeljack's face getting f'd up. More stuff like that would be fine.

    I still wish they'd done that in Rebirth. Maybe they would have if they'd had a full season instead of just a three episode mini.

    The problem with that is that PM Optimus didn't come out until 1988 a couple of years after the return of Optimus Prime

    They should have waited to bring him back in 1988. So much missed potiential.

    Coulda happened if Masterforce was dubbed.

    Yep, I really hate they brought Optimus back in "season 4". They could have made so many cool episodes in season 4 and in season 5 bring Optimus back as a Powermaster.

    I wish they would just retcon "The Return of Optimus Prime" and start a new cel animation show of Transformers, continuing the old series that way. Starting with Rodimus as being the Leader and in the next season bringing PM OP and then just have Rodimus as second in command and commander on Cybertron and Optimus on Earth and sometimes make them team-up if it is necessary.

    Now that would be cool and that's what I want to see.

    That could be a new show while still being a continuation of G1. You could introduce all the characters like you would in a new show so it is no problem for people who have never heard of G1 while the people who know G1 will know it is a retcon starting off where season 4 would have taken place.

    And if they are clever they might use it to promote the classics toys... maybe just calling the show Transformers Generations.

    I'm trying to figure out the right amount of alcohol to consume to make me forget Energon without killing myself at the same time.

    Good luck with that. If there is such an amount, it is a very precise one.

    Totally. I was beginning to wonder if they do have plans for relatively new series on the way, since we have seen, toy wise, upgraded version of Powerglide & Warpath recently (should I call this the 'Wingsaber Phenomenon'?)

    Powermaster Prime should have been the pinnacle to Optimus Prime in G1. Wasn't there a PM Prime toy advertisement looking most promising as a cartoon? Sadly & apparently, fandoms are the only ones who are more keen on that compared to cartoon producer, I suppose

    optimus primal got upgraded left and right. i believe he went through 5 bodies? (excluding bat)

    i'd like to see a new show in which optimus prime returns to cybertron (as star convoy) and sees it techno organic state and then get maximal upgraded into a cybertron-esc techno organic manitcore. simular to tigerhawk but has slots on his back where his axe and G1 rifle are stored. elita-1 could be a lioness. and his star convoy body is "retooled" to be primes personal battleship.

    autbot city got reformated into metroplex.

    Or they could have just killed him again, then brought him back. Or similar to in the comic, he has to go to Nebulos, maybe in pursuit of Darkwing and Dreadwind, but the fuel is poisoned and Hi-Q has to join with him to save his life.

    I think BW Inferno becoming Transmetal Scavenger would've made sense. I'm pretty sure that's who the figure was meant to be, anyway.

    The sad thing is, IDW pretty much did that. :(
