    This is all great news from the SDCC. I cant wait for them to be introduced and I cant wait to see the video of Unicron that was shown. So what are your thoughts about this news for the future Prime episodes?

    I for one am extremely happy they are looking into all these characters.

    They are in the long term plans if the show remains successful enough to keep going.

    4:07
    Dinobots coming?

    4:06
    Combiners? They have talked about it. Orci butted in and said "There will be combiners don't you worry" Followed by "My ego writes checks that my body can't cash"

    Not before either Prowl, Jazz, Ultra Magnus or Rodimus appear. If not it's Arcee destiny damnit.

    I hope it's Bumblebee, he has no real charecter and people should accept that this guy isn't going anywhere charecter wise.

    I'm thinking Starscream as well. He could become a Unicronian minion.

    Heres the tid bit from the video that was typed out in the chat. UNICRON!


    4:13
    And then a shadowed face that looked like Unicrons. Then the words "He is coming..." flash on the screen.

    4:12
    Showing a coming darkness, showing the Earth being eclipsed by the moon, a volcano erupting what looks like Energon.

    4:10
    Now they are showing a video.

    I'm excited about all of it. Transformers Prime is following a formula very similar to Animated and Beast Wars (that is, episodic first season followed by engaging, lengthy arcs in the succeeding seasons), and I think they've handled what mythology they've shown so far very well. The look on Starscream's face when he mentioned Unicron was amazing, so I can't wait to see what they'll have him do when he shows up.

    Considering they say Season 2 begins with things going "Out of Control" and never lets up, I'm assuming that Optimus "dies" in the Season 1 finale and Season 2 opens with the bots attempting to fill that leadership void.... until his obvious return at some point.

    though, like in the other thread, I can see Bulkhead getting offed, and yes, Bumblebee could die too... although they said they'd be doing a story arch of how he lost his voice in season 2, so he has to live at least that long... which leads me to believe he won't die at all, cause it's going to be Optimus.

    Hope they follow the way Animated did the constructions, introducing them gradually until enough exist to form the gestalt (or at least, would have been if it lasted 4-5 seasons) Wonder if the Top Gun reference means it's an aerial combiner

    I would be extremely pissed off if they kill Bulkhead, especially after they offed Ironhide in DOTM. However, I believe that the three "Kid Guardians" have some sort of inmunity at least for this season. While it's a darker series than previous ones I believe even the writers want to keep it still a bit kid-friendly. My bets...

    - Ratchet (Let's face it, he's being left too much underdeveloped.)
    - Starscream (It's the running joke of the franchise.)
    - Megatron (HE's coming...)

    What Top Gun reference?

    Bulkhead was the first thought that ran through my mind the second they said a major character was going to die. I think Rock Bottom was Foreshadowing, and Honestly Miko is going to get someone killed; or the fact that Arcee and Bulkhead had a few episodes together, maybe her bad luck with partners will have a hand in Bulkheads death.

    I bet the "out of control" thing has something to do with Optimus, because the show is titled: Transformers: Prime and we still haven't gotten anything story-wise that validates the reason for that title.

    Speculation: Maybe Hot Rod shows up and OP dies and He must learn what it means to be a Prime... Que inner conflict and minor power struggle.

    We still have to watch Partners to be sure that Miko hasn't learned anything from this experience and won't start to be more careful. And being with Arcee should help Bulkhead, writers wouldn't be so cruel. Otherwhise I would feel they're making drama for drama.

    And I remember, Decepticons are part of the major characters so they're still inside the equation.

    My thoughts on this literally run from excited to disappointed and everything in between.

    Dinobots: Okay, these guys I'd like to see. The recent "TFP Grimlock" speculation thread has got me wondering how they would go about doing the Dinobots.

    Unicron: I could go either way. I wasn't following Transformers during the Unicron Trilogy, and I wasn't even born when he debuted in G1, so I'm curious as to how they'll handle him. At the same time, however, I'm hoping they do it well.

    Combiners: These guys I'm not looking forward to. As I've stated before, I'm not totally keen on combiners. I like the idea of them, but I can easily live without them should they not appear.

    I do agree, Arcee does have bad luck with partners. It is save to assume that the future episodes will not be too different.
