    What characters that haven't been used very much in cartoons would you like to see in TF: Prime or any other new show? I'd love to see Sideswipe and Sunstreaker, I don't think we've even seen the two together since G1

    You know this thread is going to have people in the streets demanding a Trailbreaker spin-off series.

    I'm actually going to stray from G1 and say I'd like to see more Thunderblast, Evac and Crosswise/Autovolt.
    I just really liked those characters and would have liked to see more of them.

    Let me see in the U.S been around eight Transformer series. Six of which had a comon theme to them.

    So the underused characters I want to see is any with the Maximal, Predacon, or Vehicon logos on them. I mean it's been ten years since those groups were used in a series.

    I would like to see Cybershark get some love, even if that means shoehorning him in as an Autobot or something.

    Bludgeon is a good choice as well - I'm pretty unfamiliar with the character and would enjoy seeing him in action.

    I would love to see a series based on the original post movie cast, Rodimus, Magnus, Kup, Springer etc.

    But I imagine I'm on my own. haha

    I just think Optimus has been so overdone and I'm a bit of an 86er.

    Tracks. Besides two seconds in Animated, there's been nothing!

    While I might be pinned down for "gee wun!!!" I really think there are a host of classic G1 characters that Hasbro would do well to bring back into their new TF show(s).

    Everyone. They should go with Spotlights, each episode focussing on someone different, with supporting characters of course. Or a Versus. Show the point of views from both an Autobot and a Decepticon leading up to a clash at the end.

    i wanna see a totally diff autobot team semi similar to beast wars!! i loved beast wars because it gave us characters we loved but gave them diff names etc etc


    like id love to see a team with like Optimus, Mirage, Blurr, Bumble Bee, Cliffjumper, Sunstreaker, Rodimus.... Megatron, Starscream (the seekers of course), Bludgeon, Shockwave, Soundwave, Constructicons.... i dunno i just wanna see diff i guess.

    i know that most likely wont happen but ehh just my thought.

    it would be cool if optimus wasnt even in it and this was the quest for the next prime(though that wont be the case ether) lol

    Yeah, an ensemble show can definitely work.

    I mean one of the great things about Transformers in general is the huge cast.

    Yes please! Something like that latest Batman cartoon, The Brave & The Bold. Not per se in style or level of maturity, but the main character teaming up with another character.

    You could have a show about Optimus Prime getting into trouble with different Autobots of his crew every episode, in which he will learn something about his crewmen.

    Of course, in every episode the character would somehow be saved by Optimus, only for Optimus to tell him that he saved himself because of 'insert valued moral here'..:p
