    IDWverse. AnimatedSentinel was best used as a foil for Optimus, but I dont think he would be incredibly useful in a setting darker than Animated.

    DoTM? Already had one Prime go evil. Two would be redundant.

    I dont know jack about Exodus.

    IDWSentinel was a hardass. I think he would be a suitable temporary leader.

    Transformers Prime takes place in the Exodus/Exiles universe. Therefore, if any Sentinel were to show up, it would be this one.

    Unfortunately, that Sentinel died. Megatron killed him.

    The Exodus/WOC was a little similar to the IDWverse Sentinel but there wasn't enough meat to really nail him down. The background was sort of similar, he was head of the Elite Guard and then elevated to Prime somewhere in the far past.

    What he said. However Prime isn't strictly adhering, there have been some deviations. I am sure they could work the story to utilize a IDWverse like prime. He is my favorite and it would be interesting to see someone step in as leader while Optimus is finding himself.

    Due to the ridiculous retconning taking place to force Exodus/Exiles into WFC continuity, the Prime before Optimus's full name was 'Sentinel Zeta Prime'. If this is to be believed, Sentinel is dead.

    And what is with everyone asking 'Which incarnation of the character should appear in TF: Prime?' In case you haven't noticed, most of them are pretty original incarnations, although some similarities can be drawn to past/related incarnations, Prime Ratchet to Animated Ratchet and Prime Bumblebee to Movie-verse Bumblebee, for example.

    IF they have to use him I would like the DOTM design as inspiration. Love the crazy blade and fire truck.

    Umm, Sentinel died in WFC. It was a huge part of the plot. If Hasbro doesn't want to fuck up this continuity entirely, they'll leave him out of Prime.

    Why do we have another Sentinel poll??

    That being asked, I would agree with the above posts....1st, no Sentinel or just use the WfC or 2nd, Exodus Sentinel's for "flashbacks on Cybertron" if that is part of the storyline for Season 2.

    If Sentinel shows up, it's because it is a flashblack about how he died previously like in Exodus.

    Considering the fact that he's supposed to be dead in the backstory, we probably won't be seeing him in anything outside of a flashback.

    As for characterization/design, I'm sticking with what I said in the last thread about this:

    I like the comic version the best. He is a lot more massive than Optimus and just his physical presence seems to command a lot of respect. I like the scene of him at Bumper and Fastback's funeral. He seems a decent sort, on the serious side to being a little bit of a harda$$.

    Couldn't they just go with the whole "Zeta Prime" thing, come up with some naming explanation and treat Sentinel and Zeta as two different characters. That is kind of how IDW is handling it.

    Forgive me, its been a while since I read the IDW books with Sentinel Prime, but I dont recall him being "massive" when compared to the sizr of Optimus.

    Do you or anyone have some pics to show what you mean?

    TF Animated Sentinel Prime would be the best choice
