    Figured PrimePower04 would enjoy this one.
    But I'm curious about the two and what results they would get from fans if one was to debu in the Live Action movies first.
    So there is a (Multi Choice) Poll for who you would like. And there is Speculation for the ups and downs of what it would be for Springer and Ultra Magnus to step onto the big Screen.

    Springer's Good Parts: The fact that he can fly. This would be a thing that would be an advantage. Or then he could be a Car... but most people would want him to be a Helicoptor. And he is a bit more heroic and powerfull in Melee attacks than Magnus.

    Magnus' Bad Bits: He haul's around other Bot's when they themselves have wheels to get them places. Kinda dumb... but he may not do that in the movieverse. Amd he also was a bit... meh not that awesome.

    Discuss!

    I voted for Springer. He is a warrior -- head of the Wreckers -- and I think the Autobots need a true warrior on their side in the movie reality. I know they have Ironhide at the minute, but they need another one. Don't get me wrong, I love Ultra Magnus. However, I always found his G1 character a little boring and his alt mode would be too similar to Optimus Prime's. If they had him being something like his IDW character -- an independent enforcer of the Geneva Convention-like Tyrest Accords -- I think that would be interesting.

    I want both characters to be in, but I have a feeling Springer may show up in ROTF. I could be wrong. I think Optimus needs a fellow commander to empower the bots, but then again I also want to see Prowl, but...

    I don't know. Both, I guess.

    I picked neither.

    We don't need another 'leader' for the Autobots. That'd just confuse movie fans (who are new to the franchise) as to why Prime was even needed in the first place. That and Magnus was always boring.

    I thought Springer had a Legends figure, assuring him a spot in the Movie-verse? At least in the franchise if not in the movie itself.

    A lot of these topics come off as 'Who do you think deserves to be in the movie?", when who ends up in the movie boils down to who makes sense and who the writers/producers/director want there. If they put characters in solely for fan-appreciation, it'd be nothing but fan-wank and do poory.

    I def agree with u about the leader part, I was just thinking that so i put a commen t similar in the ask roberto thread....magnus would confuse people cuz of the similarities w/ prime...semi/ leader/ ????...maguns has always been boring to. however springer would not be a leader, i think he would be more like a youthful workhorse...similar to ironhide but 20 instead of 35
