    I think it's Huffer. Just look at similarities that these two have from personality to paint job.

    Or it could be Sentinel Prime?

    You /do/ know that Sentinel Prime's not a new concept, right?

    As well as the whiny attitude yet his undying loyalty to Magnus.
    Actually SP can finally also be the Autobot counerpart to Starscream.
    Magnus=Megatron- Leaders
    SP= Starscream- The way Magnus treats SP =The way Megatron treats SS
    OP= Lugnut(Funny thing that they're both done by David Kaye)-Magnus respects OP and Megs respects treats Lugnut respectively

    Yes,but I realised this show ha quite a role of reversals

    Usually its SP>OP>UM

    But in Animated, it's kind of like this:
    UM>SP>or=OP

    At least Sentinel Prime is an entertaining putz.

    Sentinel can't be a Huffer analogue. For all his jerkiness and whining, Huffer was actually nice to Optimus, who regarded him as "a true friend" (See Heavy Metal War).

    Yeah, don't hassle the Huff!

    I know what you mean though - Huffer and Mirage were doubters in the G1 Autobot camp - but to me that made them more identifiable and understandable characters than all the other cars.

    I also think SP is well written and is a great inclusion in TFA. Then again, in TFA, the Autobots all voice doubts, argue points, and can find conflict between themselves (which is normally resolved). That's just good writing for a kids' show.

    Maybe, if SP had a G1 pre-movie counterpart it would be Powerglide. If not equal in rank, both could be brash, arrogant, shake fists at fellow Autobots, but were softies, really.

    I liked that the Botcon panel suggested SP was originally Rodimus Prime. Hot Rod, for me, was an utter tool.
