    So what happened to the TF cast being doubled?

    We have not gotten any new Autobots at all and the we already have seen or know of the plots to over half this seasons episodes. Im not counting Wheeljack as a new addition to this season's cast as he was introduced in season 1 and really hasnt had Full cast member status sense coming back in this season.

    The Cons have gotten a few new members but have also lost about as many as they have gained so, where is double in size? And adding in a swarm of 100% look alike Insecticons dont count either. I mean real true unique characters.

    Who said anything about the cast doubling?


    Oh, maybe they meant the human cast would double.

    I'm guessing they were talking about adding the Insecticons, which doubles Megatron's force now.

    I believe not until later this season. I may be wrong though.

    I remember the writers saying that as well. Guess the Insecticons is what they meant by doubling.

    I think they said it at BotCon 2011.

    Maybe plans changed. Maybe they exaggerated. Or maybe all the new cast is getting introduced during the second half of the season (hey, the only Season 1 character introduced after episode 12 was Unicron, so maybe this season's a reversal).

    We still have more than half a season left. We know we'll be getting at least one more new character (David Kaye's), and if the cast really is to double then there's still time for those characters to be introduced

    I could've been satisfied with just Insections, but I, and I believe all of us, know they're just glorified Vehicons, now. One hit kill. Boom.

    All I know is PRIME better get at some time a Combiner. I dont care what one. It's a TFs cartoon after all and every past cartoon has had Combiners. I understand they want to give us character development with a core cast. I love that but, come on they are getting old fast. Id love to even see smaller things like Soundwave get a second minion like Ravage. Or how about a animal or insect-like Autobot character. We got this for the Cons so why not the Autobots? Can the Autobots get a true flyer while we are at it? These are the things that would make a good cartoon even better, I think.

    Combiners have never been handled well, though. Inconsistent power in G1 and most of us can agree movie Devastator sucked wrecking balls.

    The combiner would probably just be a recolor of Skyquake with walking body parts. And that's going to be our TF: Prime Devastator.

    Shoot, they can even go into having 3 of the Insecticon horde come forth and truly be unique looking. IDK, say they were there SOOMEWHERE. Give us the real Insecticons. The Fodder Insecticons are cool but again all the same. At least the Vehicons have different variants.

    They never said the cast would be doubled. They just said "new Autobots and Decepticons".

    That's how I remeber the news thread. NYCC panel said that "TFPrime would leave Earth and meet new Autobots and Decepticons"..no number mentioned.
