    I ordered all the marvel comics of the 80's and came to a character known as the last autobot and wondered what he would look like in movie incarnation ,specially with new designs in TF4. Please tell me what you think.

    I'm not really familiar with the character, but The Last Autobot would make a great title for the movie.

    He'd probably look like Sentinel Prime did in gold on the Ark, only with a head that more resembled the Autobot logo. Presumably he'd turn into some cybertronian land-based mode, but the vector prime repaint meant to evoke him turned into a sith-interceptor style spaceship, so it's up in the air I suppose.

    In the comics (which is pretty much the Last Autobot's only appearance),
    He appears after essentially every Autobot is killed by the Decepticons and all seems lost, he strides among the dead Autobots, raising them from the dead over and over faster than the Decepticons can kill them again, until the Decepticons admit defeat and are driven off.

    So basically, the Last Autobot represents resurrection, an end that is not THE end, but just the beginning of something new. If TF4 was intended as the last film, he could be a powerful symbol for the franchise, and of rebirth and renewal, given the state of things in the storyline after DOTM. I can't help but feel he would be a very difficult concept to get right, however.

    Eh. I'd rather have Alpha Trion or Vector Prime.

    I suppose The Last Autobot could be useful for restoring Cybertron in the movieverse. He did start that process at the end of the G1 Marvel comic run so it's an established part of his lore. But done in the movies he could just be seen as the ultimate mcguffin for giving the TFs back their homeworld.
    Cybertron Vector Prime's design was based on The Last Autobot. And, in another link, the Cybertron Vector Prime mold was used to make a Botcon Alpha Trion figure.
    I think I once suggested 'Transformers: The Last Autobot' in a thread of possible movie subtitles. It certainly has enough mystery and intrigue to it, doesn't it? :)

    Combine Last Autobot into either Alpha Trion or Vector Prime and i'm good.

    He coudl be refered to as the Last Autobot if they want just combien the charecters.

    I wouldn't be surprised (or displeased, for that matter) if they're retconned to be one and the same.

    I wouldn't want to see the Last Autobot in any opf the movies, bc as per movie tradition; he'll just end up being another villain who overshadows Megatron.

    I had hoped with the recent Orion Pax TFP episodes that we'd get something concerning these characters. Vector Sigma would be the alt mode of Vector Prime and also have the power of The Last Autobot and start a reformatting of Cybertron to restore it and wake Primus. So Vector Sigma, Vector Prime and The Last Autobot would be three things together in one: The Alpha Trion. The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost of Transformers.

    TF Wiki shall be your friend. Investigate yourself as it'll be more interesting for you than just being given a short potted answer by someone else. :)
