    I was thinking, does anyone else kind of hope this Optimus DOESN'T become Supreme commander? Don't get me wrong now, I'm just not sure, but I actually kind of prefer him as a field commander, and feel like his talents would be wasted on the Supreme commander job. Plus, right now at least, Magnus just seems better suited for the SC job.

    What do you guys think?

    I can see him being offered the position then turning it down in order to stay on Earth.

    only time i maybe see him getting that position is like the final episode they ever plan to make of animated. he is a more thrilling commander of a rag tag bunch of misfit space bridge repair bots then a leader of every military bot who deals more with strategy.

    then again i am also hoping there is more plans then 3 seasons of animated (i recall mention there was plans for 4 seasons) one can only hope.

    This is the only Optimus Prime that has interested me since g1. He has WAY more depth as a character in the position he is in now. It's the same Reason Optimus Primal was such a great character. There is room to grow. The character is not restricted to the same catch phrases from ep to ep.

    Maybe in the series finale, but right now he should stay at a similar position in the pecking order, maybe gradual increases for the sake of story.

    I personally think he should, but only after we get at least 5 seasons of him in the position he's already in. And even then there should be some big reasons for him gaining the spot. Basically give him a situation where there are only two options: A. Become leader and save Autobot kind, or B. Don't take it and watch as Decepticons take over. I'm not sure that'll happen, but it would be interesting to see this Prime grow into the more mature leader we've known him as in pretty much every other continuity we've been given.

    That's pretty much what I'd guess. Optimus (maybe others in the group) get offered an Elite guard posting, but decline because it would require either (1) leaving Earth, (2) leaving Sari (3) leaving the rest of the Autobot crew, or (4) any combination of the preceding.

    i hope not, but if it does maybe magnus will die like starscreamer said but sentinel being the arrogant git he is will take role of leader and can't handle it and will offer the job to optimus. After some consideration optimus declines but something happens with the two primes that knocks some sense into sentinel and he becomes a better leader.

    Sentinel should be the next Supreme Commander.

    Jerks that can be jerks because they're the strongest shit ever rules.

    I hope not, Optimus becoming the Supreme Commander would probably mean the previous Supreme Commander would have to die.

    agreed

    though I do kind of like the idea of "Prime" being a military rank like "Captain"

    hmm wonder if that means General" is represented by "Ultra" or "Magnus"?

    I think Animated Optimus Prime would need some good upgrades before the post of Supreme Commander. He needs his Iconic Blaster, and maybe combine with a trailer.

    series finale......Ultra Magnus wounded Optimus takes over and defeats the decepticons...wining back Sentinel's respect and Blackarchinda's love....Ultra Magnus passes on the torch to Optimus prime a ceremony similair to Starsaber passing the torch to Dai Atlas.

    always have been thinking that wanting to say that.
