    It's time for this to come back, and we seriously have a new contender here.

    Sentinel Prime is a dick.

    -He's the stereotypical 80's movie sports team's star jock, picking on Prime and always belittling him. He's the equivilent of the lead jock from Revenge of the Nerds, basically.
    -He does everything he can to belittle Prime and his work, even when he has no cause to do so.
    -He's constantly rude and condescending to everyone around him, because he believes he is inherantly "better".
    -He intentionally riles up Jazz about organics, when he clearly knows better.
    -He's even a dick to humans, smashing up two human's cars in the process of leaving the Autobot ship his first time on Earth.
    -He can't accept the possibility of being wrong, or less than perfect.

    Can anyone make a case otherwise?

    Behind every great leader lies a a**kisser.

    And what gives with the oversized chin?

    His actor is Townsend Coleman, the voice actor of The Tick. I'm not quite sure if the artists designed Sentinel based on the Tick after casting Coleman, or if the character was designed first and Coleman cast later. But Sentinel talks using pretty much an exact duplicate of the Tick's voice, and the large chin and blue color make him greatly resemble Tick too.

    And I love him. He's the comic relief, and he's great at it. As long as they don't overdue his comic reliefiness (I know that's not a word) and give him moments where he is competent and capable, he can be this generations TwinTwist!!

    Sentinel Prime Sucks!

    I think he has a good reason to have a phobia for organics.
    He does think he lost a good friend and possible love interest to organics.
    That might have traumatized him

    he is the most misunderstood TF in the Animated show.

    Being a triple-changer with a 3rd mode of cyber-douche is traumatic.

    I never agreed on something more than all points of yours. I love even the evil antagonist of TFA, but Sentinel is really annoying next to G1 Blurr....

    I can't wait for him to meet Blackarahnia. He's gonna show his true colors to her by first breaking her heart (Energon Pump) and then pissing her off. Hopefully Optimus will be able to help her before the end of the series.

    I also have a bit of hate for the douche bag that is Sentinel Prime.

    However, I also feel bad for him, as I fear his dick/ass kiss-ery may catch up with him for the worst.

    Imagine what would happen to him if he pulled some smart-assed shit on Megatron during battle. I could see Megs quickly putting an end to Sentinel, leaving the other Autobots finding it hard to grieve for someone like him, even if he is a lost comrade.

    Then Optimus says. There is fine line between being a hero, and being a memory. But Sentinel was neither. (*optional*Then Bulkhead and Bumblebee are board so they feed the body to the dinobots.*optional*)

    He's written to be a dick, so it should be enjoyable how much of an ass he is, but I guess that's just me
