    Are we ever going to see new characters in Team Prime or the only one's were going to see in Team Prime is the ones already in it.

    We'll definitely see new characters as the show goes along (we already know Dreadwing is on the way for Season 2), but the core cast of characters will more than likely stay the same. Which is great, imho, as a smaller main cast allows for better characterization for each bot.

    Undoubtedly. I can see it having a rotating roster a la Beast Wars.

    I guess it's possible that we only retain the core five members of Team Prime for the entire series. I mean it's not like every other series eventually added other Autobots to the roster.

    Oh, wait, THEY DID.

    Seriously, the cartoon is of course meant to sell toys, and Hasbro likes to sell Autobots MUCH more than Decepticons. Of course, besides Team Prime, the only other Autobots are either dead (Cliff), doing their own thing off screen (Wheeljack). That's seven Autobots. Unless Hasbro is going to abuse repaints like crazy, there has GOT to be more Autobots in the series.

    I would rather say semi-rotating, but yeah, pretty much like Beast Wars.

    Maybe they could throw in ROTF-Jetfire as a wise [and slightly crazy] mentor to the Team Prime.

    haha, that would be really cool to see but imo jetfire should be younger with the same alt. mode(blackbird) just because I love the alt. mode and that would pose as a more threat to the decipticons if he was younger.

    As somoene once said, there could be two characters: Skyfire, the WFC character, and Jetfire, the old badass dude.

    Besides, I really think an acient badass grizzled 'Con would pose more of a threat than a young and inexperient one.

    On Wheeljack, it was confirmed by James Horan on Facebook [if you want a link, the "Tony Todd on TFP" thread has one]

    What about the Jazz info he posted? Or is that pure speculation?

    We need ROTF Jolt on the cast; field medic and Grapple/Whip fighter.

    Otherwise, I dunno.

    That's why I only specified Wheeljack: Jazz-thing is pure speculation as far as I know.

    Maybe he could act as a Silent Ninja, a nodd to his lack of lines on ROTF.

    No, I think if he was like WFC Sideswipe voice-wise, that'd be awesome. I think that my OC ideas in the episode premise thread would work, but I'm not pushing that (don't want to feed the trolls or drop a bomb on the fandom).

    For a flyer, Skydive; mentor figure, can be an old plane (preferably a P38), and still awesome.

    Also, Roadbuster as a Movie-Ironhide stand-in.

    Skydive? NO! The eternal glory of Jetfire is more suited for this.

    Hell Yeah, and he should team-up with Fowler [got it? got it?]

    I'd rather leave the Jetfire slot open for the scientist from WFC.
    Skydive can still be glory eternal.
    I blame TVTropes for this WMG.

    Should I do a post of the seven autobots that could be used and why?
