    I dont hate any of the bots or cons we've seen. I think its time to bring in new bots or cons.

    Nah, I'd rather they really delve into the core cast.

    Agreed, but bring at least two new bots, maybe one, for next season. Let this season focus on the main bots.

    Beast Wars typically had about seven on seven at a time, so I'd like to see a main cast of seven Autobots, seven Decepticons.

    I'd rather that they develop what they have; Optimus and Ratchet could use a few starring episodes.

    This. After the first season is done (and depending on the ensuing events, both story-related and production-related), I'd like to see a semi-rotating cast, a la Beast Wars. This is, of course, only after all of the main characters that we have now have had their time to shine. Perhaps after some tragic first season events, some of the old characters may - unfortunately - not make it back for a second season. Add Airachnid to the main cast, and kill off Breakdown, as an example. Wheeljack can permanently join Team Prime, and then Bulkhead gets killed, leaving Wheeljack to "bond" with Miko. Add in Shockwave once Starscream (possibly) abandons the Decepticons. Or whatever. Those are just hypothetical examples that aren't based on anything other than my imagination. :)

    I'd like to see them further develop the characters we already have (specifically Optimus, Bumblebee, and Breakdown) before introducing more.

    I think the "fixed" cast makes for a better show. It worked incredibly well for Animated, and so far, it's doing the same for Prime. Better and more dedicated development for a central group, opposed to too many fish in the sea, if you will. Some semi-recurring regular characters thrown into the mix certainly couldn't hurt, though. But we're kind of already getting those now. And they'll keep coming, obviously - more toys to sell in a year's time. :D

    Core cast is boring. I need more robots.

    Agreed. Like, I'm not opposed to new characters or anything, but we've only had 15? episodes so far, and it's not like we don't already have characters like Wheeljack, Cliffjumper & several impending Decepticons awaiting a larger role.

    I agree that they should focus on the core team, but I also think they should bring in more characters like Wheeljack was on this season: Appear, be cool, disappear to return some time later.

    For example, Lockdown could work as a Cad Bane-esque character: Appears, whops asses and bring massive headeache to the heroes for two-three episodes by season, and then returns to lurk in the shadows.

    But I would like one [Just one] new 'Bot, someone older with knowlege from the deep past, somewhat of a mentor to them all [Ironhide, Alpha Trion or ROTF Jetfire], or someone Mad and insanity-driven to serve as a comic relief and Crazy awesome of the team [Wreck-Gar, perhaps?], or a loner badass havoc-wreaking man, The Wolverine of the team [Ironhide or Roadbuster, perhaps?].

    You can almost garuntee the apearance of an Ironhide in this series. This is Robert Orci and Alex Kurtzman we're talking about

    I like Ironhide, but I would prefer to behold the eternal glory of ROTF'S Jetfire once more.

    I just want a confirmation of a new bot with a picture so we can all speculate who he or she is.

    They can add whoever they want. I mean they picked some one as obscure as Skyquake and created Knockout and Airachnid.


    This is there show not ours.

    Didn't we discuss this at least once before??

    Stay with the core cast is their (the producers) plan per several interviews, they do intend to add more characters, but their focus for this season is on the characters we have. There's still several more back stories they can do for this cast. :thumb
