    If you could replace any character on Transformers Prime with another character from the Transformer Universes , who would you choose, and why? And how would they fit into the series?

    My choice is Bulkhead with Ironhide. Ironhide is more serious, and has a certain attitude toward Earth and the humans ( based on Bay movies :bay  )

    My choice for the Decepticons would be Airachnid for Skywarp, because Starscream needs a second hand who's loyal, and it would spice up the heat between the Decepticons and the Rogues

    I'm actually fine with the current cast but if I had the choice I'd have Flatline be the medic instead of Knockout because I'd like to see more of this guy. His character can be like Thrax from Osmosis Jones.

    I'd replace Bumblebee with Hot Shot.

    I would replace Airachnid with a more twisted and insane version of Animated Blitzwing.

    Then I would replace Miko with a pet rock.

    Soundwave stays.

    Knock Out stays.

    Airachnid with Lockdown (Animated-based).

    I like Armada's characters.

    xD lololol.

    As much as I love Ratchet and Jeff Combs, I'd have to say I would prefer if he were female Red Alert. Same scenario, just a female so we could have the power rangers like set up (3 males, 2 females) and arcee could have someone in-team to be compared to. Plus teaming with June would be even more likely because they both have the female aspect and could have similar thoughts on Arcee and Jack.

    I would also replaced Breakdown with Strika. Since Breakdown's potential flashback and character development never got played up, I think Strika would have done more with her time before she was taken out (assuming she was still killed like Breakdown). Would also help stabilize Airachnid's killing showingthat she's the HBIC. Also, Knock Out's dynamic of a 'flamboyant' male with such a rugged woman would be awesome

    Autobots:
    1. Replace Optimus Prime with Bayverse Optimus Prime, specifically his DotM iteration. This version has the combat and leadership skills required, and he's intelligent enough to realize that Megatron needs to die without going through a whole season of BS, and he's passionate.
    2. I'd also replace Bulkhead with Cliffjumper; the daring, charming hotshot should have stayed. He'd provide a way for the Autobots to build on their dynamic, as he would be Arcee's close friend, he could conflict with Ratchet (who gets tired of his recklessness), and he'd be like Bumblebee's surrogate older brother.
    3. Finally, I'd also replace Wheeljack with Elita One, who has a similar alternate mode and armaments, a black and gold color scheme out of Animated, and is the only Autobot on Earth to know Optimus from before the war. Ratchet knows him from long years of fighting together in the war, and he saw Optimus's ascension to Prime, but he never knew Optimus before the war. She and Optimus aren't in any kind of relationship, because he changed during the war, becoming stoic, grim, and heartbroken over Cybertron's fate. The spark of sheer life he had that attracted her is gone, replaced by despair and guilt. The war murdered anything they could have had before it even started.

    Decepticons: The Decepticons, for the most part, don't require replacement; Megatron, Starscream, Knockout, Soundwave, and Dreadwing are fine, though I'd give them more time to do their thing. I'd also have Skyquake last a little longer as Megatron's completely unrestrained, amoral enforcer - the kind of guy who would massacre refugees to lure Optimus out.
    1. Breakdown would be replaced with Skyquake in his continuing role, until his death later on.
    2. Airachnid would be scrapped as she is, instead returning to her huntress/serial killer roots, pursuing Arcee for being the only prey to escape her. Arcee and Cliffjumper would work to defeat her, and she would turn to MECH to build up her power base.

    Humans:
    1. Miko and Raf would be gone, with Sierra taking over the basic computer operations. She wouldn't be the stuck-up snob cheerleader, but a genuinely decent young woman. She'd also have a deep interest in computers as a hobby. Her main flaw would be a short temper, which would lead to massive snark-fests, mainly between her and Arcee or her and Ratchet.
    2. Bumblebee would be replaced by one similar to DCAU Flash, only not flirty. Instead, he'd have Hound's fascination with Earth and Jazz's love of Earth culture.

    Yes.

    I'd also replace Wheeljack with Topspin and Twintwist, and swap Airachnid for Thunderblast.
