    I didn't see one of these around, so though I'd make one

    I can't be the only one who liked the murderous traitor Prime can I?

    He was my favourite, loved how he managed to fend of all the autobots at once. Leonard voiced him perfectly.

    Sentinel Prime was incredibly charismatic for a traitor, Leonard Nimoy kicked ASS as Sentinel.

    What I like about the guy [except for the fact he is probably the best TF fighter ever, as he wiped the floor with Optimus] is that while he is wrong, he kind of has a point on the whole "We were GODS!" thing [i.e Humans don't value Transformers much, they are just machines for us].

    His whole villany has a point, that's interesting.

    He was absolutely fabulous as a villain [or rather, anti-vllain], I wouldn't mind in having him back for TF4.

    He was a great villain and one of the only Transformers to get much character or lines of dialogue.

    And in retrospect, he makes TFA Sentinel a more likeable character too, by overshadowing his jerkiness

    Actually, he makes TFA Sentinel worse: This Sentinel shows how awesome a fucking evil Sentinel can be, but in Animated? He was just plain annoying.

    I mean, it leaves the impression that Animated-Sentinel was a missed opportunity to make someone like MOVIE Sentinel. the master traitor of all badassery.

    or perhaps it will leave a bad taste in your mouth, since this might have been what TFA Sentinel would become if the series wasn't cancelled?

    I'm not gonna lie to you... I don't like Sentinel, but he's a great villian.

    Indeed, indeed.
    If Sentinel Prime appears on PRIME, he must be like Movie-verse Sentinel.

    The Tick was an A hole but I couldn't ever see him killing other Autobots in cold oil and helpig the Cons. I actually thought they would kill him off in a heroic way, saving Optimus or somthing. I was suprised he was still alive at the end of the series as I thought they would pave the way for Optimus to be leader.

    I loved his design. Used enough of the core elements of Optimus' design (chest windows, tires on legs, helmet) to be recognized as a Prime, but was also different enough so you knew it wasn't Optimus himself. The wide shoulder guards and kibble-cape give off a royalty-vibe, and with the other characters attitudes towards him, it's not hard to see why. Imagine if Sentinel were the one to come to Earth in TF07 instead of Optimus?

    Regarding the comments about Sentinel in TFP, I'd actually like to see a blend of DOTM and Animated. General robot mode appearance of DOTM, with the blue & orange colouring of Animated. With both of these interpretations, it seems that Sentinel is going to be the "token dickhole" of Transformers. Perhaps somewhere in the middle between these two: a jerk with a heart of gold (Animated) that has reasons for being that way (DOTM).

    I had the idea of TFA Sentinel Prime just snapping due to Optimus being better than him and becoming Nemesis Prime and betray and murder as many Autobots as he can.

    I thought Sentinel was doing what he thought was right.

    He didn't need to kill Ironhide though, it's not like he'd been able to stop Sentinel from taking the pillars anyway.

    I think Ironhide would have been a big obstacle for Sentinal. He was pretty tough and wouldn't take kindley to a traitor.

    Besides, Ironhide's demise also served as a distraction for Sentinel [so he could wreck a havoc upon the base and escape without anyone stopping him].

    I was just about to make one of these! Haters gonna hate, but at the end of the day, come on Sentinel Prime is hands down, the best villian in the movies easily!

    I loved his backstory and I could empathize with him, he just wanted to save Cybertron, no matter the cost.

    Some of the most epic lines "We were gods once, all of us, and here they call us Machines!!"

    Hell of a fighter, the way he moves with his blade and shield is amazing, I was actually in awe of Sentinel's fighting style he is so much more graceful and clean then anyone else in the series IMO.

    if speilburg did direct tf4, wonder if he decided that sentinel would become galvatron? i know, its verrry far fetched, but megs got fucked up to the point where he CANT be revived,and his head cant reattached(since prime ripped it to shreds).
