I'm not sure if this has been brought up before so if it has I apologize. This should have already been very clear to me, but for some reason it only hit me yesterday. Transformers Prime is very similar to Transformers Animated in that it's main Autobot characters are exactly the same. Seriously. -Optimus Prime -Bumblebee -Ratchet -Bulkhead -Prowl and Arcee. Really what's the difference? Motorcycle alt mode, slim design, ninja-botish, troubled past with a somewhat grouchy attitude. Why did they make two Transformer series that are back to back with the exact same cast? I personally feel like they should have mixed it up a bit. But maybe that's just me. Maybe this formula works as a whole? Don't you miss when there were at least cameos and guest appearances like in Animated? Prime is great but it to me is definitely lacking in some areas. Pleas note that I am not hating on this show and I am really trying to love it instead of just liking it like I do now. What was up with Wheeljack? His appearance was awesome but all he did was: "Hey! *cuts up some Decepticons* bye!" Looking at all the episodes as a whole that was just completely random if you think about it. And where the hell is Knockout?! Also, the environments and settings are bland to me.. The Transformers themselves are great but it's the backgrounds that get to me. Agree or disagree? I want to know.
