    OP- Why do you think that it NEEDS to? Why not move forward with the characters instead of dwelling on the past?

    Let's just put it as this:
    Prime 1: Sentinel
    2: Ultra Magnus
    3: Alpha Trion
    4: whoever
    5: same
    6:same
    and the rest same

    I've always found that the invincible, super-strong guys who are totally in charge and awesome at everything are the least interesting characters in any franchise. I'd like to know as little about other Primes as possible.

    Er, no... that was something that should have been explained who the Primes were in ROTF, and not in TF3.

    Agreed. They missed their chance to tell a proper story involving the Primes in ROTF. Move on for TF3.

    Wouldnt it just be easy to name the group The Primes? ... Who care if they dont even have names, in case you missed it, there was 50 robots in that movie, and only twenty were named.

    Gonna go ahead and disagree. I have no problem with them being mysterious figures from the TFs' past. There's plenty of characters in the movies' present time that need to be expanded upon before we learn more about the Primes.

    ultra magnus is not a really prime. also he needs to be in 3. prime needs a good friend with the same amount of bad ass.

    I think it'd be silly explore the Primes. They look too similar for me to care about each individually, much less tell them apart.

    The Primes would be a great story, but shouldn't be dwelled into TF3, instead, maybe a small part of it, not sure if the beginning or...? ROTF was the chance, and it didn't quite connect the dots..

    No, because then they might get toys and the toys would end up like ROTF The Fallen's toys and I'd have wasted my money on more of the same crap.

    Plus I think the story would suffer.

    I can see where you're coming from, since they sort of showed them in the last movie, but I don't think going into more detail is really worth it. Obviously I have no idea what the story line will be for the next installment but I did hear whispers that Cybertron might be involved. My guess though is it would show the war between Bots and Cons and possibly how Megatron rose to power.
