I expect Optimus Primal will make an appearance once we get into the Power of the Primes era.
Beast Wars Megatron. I need my rubber duck loving psychopaths.
should he be referred to by another name, like how RiD'01 Megatron was called Gigatron?
Probably. Or maybe they might give an explanation, like he admires the original megs as a 'con, so he is going to live up to that. Just my 2 cents.
maybe not "admires", but sees the name Megatron as having a lot of command and weight to it. With the original Megatron being lost to another universe, another Decepticon rises up and claims the name.
Lio Convoy, but as a wise storyteller with a badass staff.
That's a good point. BW Megatron would probably have different motivations from IDW G1 Megatron.
Lio Convoy as a transformed version of Leoric from Visionaries, just to piss off as many people as possible.
As a die hard fan Lio Convoy as of ten minutes ago
Man, I got fucking CLAW JAW in a comic.
I mean, Roadbuster gruesomely dismembered him, and then his head exploded, but, still. CLAW JAW?!?!
I'm good. =D
Razorbeast. He had a cameo, but actual screen time. I always liked Furman's use of him as "little scrappy dude who punches way above his weight class."
I dunno : /
All my favourites are already featured in IDW. I guess I wouldn't mind a BlackArachinia based more on her BW persona(scheming femme-fatale) but obviously they'd have to rename her since we already have a BA.
Torca! Preferably as the leader of the Fuzors on Eukaris. Also, all the other Fuzors.
With Power of the Primes fast approaching and Onyx Prime clearly be slotted as a huge player, I truly expect more Beast Wars characters to rise to prominence. I was extremely sad when Roberts wrote Megs out of the story, but this, yeah. A brand new Megatron arriving from the ranks of Eukaris, a member of Onyx's tribe and a disciple of Megatronus, who takes on the name because of its clear denotation of terror and power, I can definitely both see this happening and get behind it. IDW's Transformers needs a new big bad. Megatron was beaten. Galvatron was beaten. For all intents and purposes in G1 continuity, Beast Wars Megatron would obviously be the next enemy for our heroes to face.
That said, I'd like to see more than just the occasional cameo. Rattrap has been one of my favorite things in the canon so far, the Starscream to Starscream's Starscream. I can live without Cheetor. Dinobot would be cool, but I fear he's a bit too similar, albeit far nobler than Starscream. Rhinox I expect to still be working for Onyx, although maybe he's Tankor now. We have seen Tankor (and Tankor) a number of times. I'd say more but it's been so long since I've seen this show. I plan to start rewatching it soon.
Oh, and definitely Primal will appear. I actually kind of expect that IDW's currently working toward killing off Prime and have Primal take up leadership of the Autobots, at least temporarily.
IDW have teased Unicron. The Matrix defeats Unicron.
Optimus Primal won the fan-vote to be the next Prime, complete with a Matrix in his chest. He's not far away from his introduction.
How about having a merging of Animated and Beast Wars Blackarachnia for her IDW appearance?
Primal has been called the 'King' of Eukaris. Let's hope his introduction is accompanied by a 4-6 issue miniseries detailing the history of the colony. That would be a great way to see some of our favourites on the page.
I'm down for more beasties when they are appropriate to the story. That said I'd love see the eukarans get more screentime. Or maybe a payoff to the ending of Sins if the Wreckers, where we see Impactor and Carnivac leading their new Maybe Attack Squad full of beasties.
But if I must spitball a random character, Ikard and his Tako Tank.
