I've heard a lot of talk about the Decepticons, who did and didn't survive and who we hope shows up in the next movie, but what about the Autobots? They're down a member after what happened to Jazz. So who will be Op's new lieutenant, who else do you think will/should show up as addtional forces? My hopes: (I don't expect to see all of these, too many would crowd the film, its more like a shortlist of who I expect to see/who I think might work best) Arcee - she got cut from the first movie, but is getting a toy anyway hopefully just like Soundwave they're just holding off on her til the sequel Grimlock - you know they're going to find some way to use him Sunstreaker and Sideswipe - these two badass Autobots would make a perfect addition for some added muscle in the fight scenes, plus they have strongly defined personalities that would add some good humor Prowl - would be a good direct replacement for Jazz as Prime's second Blaster - if Soundwave can be reworked, then so can he, I'd love to see these two clash in live action/CGI glory, plus he serves a useful place in the unit as communicatons officer and replaces Jazz as human culture expert. Hound - could also be a human culture expert, his tracking skills would be useful in finding the surviving Cons, and his secret desire to be human could make for some good conversations with Sam. Hot Rod/Shot - he might be a little too similar to Bumblebee's role but the hot shot who doesn't obey orders always has good plot possibilities, he could play off Ratchet and Ironhide well, plus I'd like to see how he'd look in movie style.
