    Is it going to be Rodimus Prime/ Rodimus/ or Hot Rod? Is he going to out rank Optimus Prime and Sentinel Prime? I'm curious... anyone want to take a stab at it?

    He's the leader of ship's crew, Rodimus PRIME for sure.

    Sounds cool. I do hope he has more episodes! If he's a leader then he's probably equal in rank with the other Primes - Optimus and Sentinel.

    Can't be Hot Rod. Hasbro doesn't have the rights to that names.

    I can't remember the details, but it's either because "Hot Rod" is too generic of word, or that another company trademarked it.

    This article is a good place to learn about trademarks and how they relate to Transformers.

    More Primes, hopefully Season 3 expands the cast of Autobot Command. Given the current info, we know Magnus is top dog but he's pretty active, perhaps another step of command above him? And with Prime status given out to Academy bots, I would love to see how the whole hierarchy works. So far we've had 3, Optimus, Sentinel and Longarm with Longarm probably soon to revert back to Shockwave.

    Rodimus Prime for sure. Would be a wasted opportunity if they didn't use a character who is a Prime as a Prime...:)

    that sucks! i actuall preferred "hot rod" of all it's names. only because he looked more "cool" as hot rod than rodimus prime in the original series.

    It would be incomplete if it were just left Rodimus.. even though this has been done before. I think his title would be Prime.... Rodimus Prime. Judging from that pic before he's face looks like hes been through his fare share of battles....looks like a veteran as oppose to a hotrod like.

    Rodimus Prime.That's right!More Primes to kick some a**.

    I thought they already named him as Rodimus Prime,not Hot Rod?I could be wrong.

    Only time we've really had anyone refer to him was Derrick in the comment section of his blog.

    He referred to him as only "Rodimus", but people refer to Optimus Prime as "Optimus" all the time. We'll probably have to wait for the next Transformers Collectors' Club magazine to start showing up.

    another thought which part of "Ultra Magnus" is name and which is title?

    is he Ultra with the rank of Magnus?

    or is he Magnus with the rank of "Ultra"?

    my geuss "Ultra" is the rank

    Minor = low level
    Prime = best you can be
    Ultra = beyond what you should be capable of

    that being said anothe rcouple ranks wouldn't be a bad thing

    maybe "sub-prime"...nah don't want autobots to sound like mortgages

    "Major" could work as some kind of general.

    hmm

    Optimus Major
    Sentinel Major
    Magnus Major
    Rodimus Major
    Longarm Major


    it works, and fits with the "Minor" rank
