    Autobots should be Optimus Prime as commander; Jazz and Prowl as first and second Lieutenants; Bumbleebee (Who can actually speak this time) and Cliffjumper as scouts; Ratchet as the medic; Ironhide as the weapons expert; Jetfire for air conflicts (mostly as an enemy for Screamer and his seeker unit); and Sideswipe and Sunstreaker as the front line soldiers.

    Decepticons should be Megatron as commander, Starscream and Soundwave as first and second lieutenants; Skywarp and Thundercracker as Screamer's seeker unit (they would serve hit and run disruption purposes and front line aerospace combat mostly); Ravage, Lazerbeak, Rumble (Blue), and Frenzy (Red) as the Wave unit (scouting, infiltration, sabotage, and surveillance); G1 style constructicons (constructing Megatron's devices/secret weapon against the bots with their combiner tech as Devastator!); Shockwave as the strategist and for logistics; and Astrotrain for transport, extra muscle, and he would look damn cool triple changing on camera.

    Just my thoughts...

    More characters that I would've used, and somewhat imbalanced in terms of each faction's power (the Cons have an edge with a Triple Changer, the cassette bots and the Constructicons/Devastator) , but still a very nice suggestion.

    Optimus
    A talking Bumblebee
    Ariel (separate character from Elita-1, a la IDW Galvatron or Goldbug)
    Prowl
    Hound
    Inferno
    Smokescreen

    Reboot or sequel, those'd be the Autobots I'd want.

    Actually, I'm of the mindset that the factions actually should be imbalanced, so that when the Autobots win, it's a more satisfying win since they had to struggle more to defeat the more powerful Decepticons. Kind of like how most people don't want to read a Superman Batman fight where Superman wins because he's more than powerful enough to destroy every hero on Earth by himself (what chance would the Bat really have if Supes went all out?), a Man of Steel losing to the World's Greatest Detective is far more entertaining of a read (in my eyes) since it shows how one man can overcome far superior beings with creativity and cunning (and a little green k ring). I always felt that the Autobots should be outnumbered so the struggle is really in the cons favor until Optimus uses the Matrix to finally overcome all the odds. Just my two cents.

    Oh, also, Jazz would not die in this version. He would be promoted to Jazzimus Prime after Optimus' death in the third movie (much as I like Hot Rod as Rodimus, always thought Prime's right hand should have a chance to be upgraded to leader in some form of Transformers fiction) until Prime came back as a powermaster/target master named Prime Maximus to defeat underbase powered Emperor Starscream. Jazz would also have a new alternate mode of a Porsche Cayenne.

    Damn you Hasbro, let me make a TF Movie!!!!!! :)

    Anything with Overlord, Dreadwind and Darkwing in it would have my vote for an awesome movie! Sixshot, too.

    Autobots
    Optimus Prime: Leader.
    Arcee: Main character and Worrier
    Prow: Second in command.
    Roadbuste: Muscle
    Dino: Scout
    Some kind of Medic.

    Decepticon

    Starscream: Commander
    Striker: Worrier
    Blackout: Scientist
    Barricade: Scout
    Soundwave: Communications
    Lazerbeak: Spy
    If Megatron is going to suck as much as he does in the films and TFPrime than I don't want him.

    For a reboot, I'd like to see about the same amount of robots as TF1... so about even. BUT they would be key characters, and not just there for show (Bonecrusher)/

    Autobots:
    Optimus Prime
    Bumblebee
    Ironhide
    Wheeljack
    Ratchet
    Jazz (to make up for his shortlived appearance in TF1)

    Decepticons
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Skywarp
    Thundercracker
    Soundwave
    Shockwave (maybe the plot would involve Shockwave leaving Cybertron after millions of years to aid Megatron in defeating the Autobots?)
    Sideways (to then 'switch sides' to the Autobots, only to betray THEM in the 2nd film, leading to Unicron in the third? Very much like Armada Sideways.)

    Ratchet and Ryan Reynolds. That's all a reboot needs to be.

    Drop Bumblebee from the roster (for now, at least).

    Pimp Hound and Cliffjumper.

    And change their look- more IDW TF Ongoing (Don Fig's stuff).


    No Ryan Reynolds. Please.
