    Think Bumblebees nemesis should be in this show? I thought Animated was brilliant for making these two rivals. I'd really like to see more?

    What do you think?

    Also, what kind of altmode? A car ala Wasp? Or giant bug/cybertronian bug?

    If he were in the show, I'd prefer a muscle car altmode to rival Bumblebee's.

    Personally, I'd prefer Barricade to be Bee's nemesis in prime, but i wouldn't argue if wasp showed up.

    I like he being a member of a Predacon Unit that he fails to revenge on Bumblbee,but he stay in his new form. Green Car as Wasp Techno-Organic Wasp as Waspinator.

    I'd actually would rather have Waspinator become one of Starscream's minions.

    Ironic wouldn't it be. :)

    I have to agree with Shroob. Besides, it was already done very well, no need to redo it. :)

    I'd be for a Predacon unit. We could have Rampage in his G1 alt form, but acting more like BW Rampage. Could bring back Tarantulas as a tech expert. We could have Terrorsuar as Air Commander and working under Starscream. Then use Quickstrike and Waspinator as the front line targets.

    On the Autobot side, Ratchet creates the Dinobots. Only this time they are smart and we could have TFP: Dinobot on the team.

    I rather liked the ending for Waspinator in Beast Wars where he was the king of the early human ancestors. So perhaps they could tie the show into Beast Wars a bit by Waspintor being a bot who has been on Earth for a very long time.

    Might even be kind of fun if Waspinator had his own agenda instead of having to be a Decepticon just because he was a Predicon in both the future and the past. It would be rather insane if Waspinator was the self appointed protector of Earth.

    I agree. It'd be nice to see them actually do something with that implied rivalry from the films. The whole thing of cop car vs muscle car also has an amusing angle to it as well.

    But lets say if they did go the Wasp route, It'd be funny if he was a older, beat up looking, muscle car in contrast to Bee's newer, souped up, looking model.

    But still, personally I'd rather they don't do the whole Wasp thing, because the only reason that worked in TFA was because he became Waspinator in the end. And that'd just be a straight rehash.

    I hope to God not. Wasp/inator beeing BB's nemesis is a uinque twist on a classic character by Animated. Retreading that concept would seem pointless and dumb down both the character of Waspinator and Animated's story arc about him. As a fan of BW, Animated AND Prime, I think that would be a pretty stupid and useless plot considering TF Prime's BB.

    I like the idea of reintroducing Barricade as BB's nemesis for Prime. It would serve to expand on their rivalry (that admitted didn't exist, really) from the first movie and hopefully appease all those fans who keep thinking Barricade NEEDS to return to the movies and is somehow this amazingly interesting character.

    I don't think Wasp would work in this series.

    In Animated he had a fast talking BB to plot revenge on, (BB doesn't talk here)
    In BW we had the entire series to work up to the punchline (Rule over the Earth? Boring)

    Both were excellent. No need to do it again.

    Too many other characters to get around to.

    I would like to see Wazzzpinator be either a duplicate of b2d2 that is created when dark energon messes up the ground bridge, or a side of b2d2 that is unleashed by Starscream's experimenting on him, while Barricade is the nemesis to b2d2.

    Prime's 'bee is too "droidlike" for me to think of him as "Bumblebee" and TFA had BB "I'm too fast and snippy for full names! call me BB!"

    Well, I'm up for lots of ideas here:

    Wasp(inator) - yes, always room for him in any TF show.

    Barricade as BB's rival - yes, always room for a Police Mustang. Think the movie Barricade bot would look sweet in a TFP aesthetic.

    Wasp(inator) being around on Earth as a (useless, hopeless) self-appointed protector - yes. I like. A lot.

    Why not make his bot mode a bit, well, Waspy (six limbs, hint of wings, antennae) but the alt mode something like a car, or a small plane, how about a crop sprayer?

    Why not tie the long-time Earth-bound story in with the G1 Insecticon story (having jetissoned the Ark before impact and evolved separately from other TFs)? Throw in a Ransack or a Kickback, have some fun. Again, all these would work in the show's look, I reckon.
