    During time between the years 2000 and 2010 we have seen new characters (like Drift), and characters remade (the Movieformers).

    In your opinion who was the best new/remade character of the past decade?

    Well, I'd disagree with this one, but people are awing over the Bayverse Bumblebee it seems. He seems to be a target marketing point, so yeah.

    Animated Bulkhead for new character.

    Remade is a tie between Armada Starscream, Movie Bumblebee, Animated Prowl, and Prime Arcee

    Animated Ratchet.

    One of the deepest and most developed characters we've gotten ever. He has a complex backstory, he suffers from PTSD, Animateds core story was about him. Plus his Cybertronian mode toy rocks.

    New: BM Jetstorm, Animated Bulkhead, Animated Lockdown, and RID Skybyte.

    Remade: Animated G1 name characters.
    A great take on characters that really needed it. A Optimus Prime that was a nobody and became a hero. A Megatron that was almost like the second coming of BW Megatron. Bumblebee, Prowl, Ratchet, Shockwave, Starscream, ect all had a great update.

    I was waffling between Lugnut and Bulkhead, but no. This. Definitely Animated Ratchet. For all the reasons mentioned.

    New Character: I would have to go with Lockdown. Though Bulkhead and Lugnut are close behind. He's a great, complex character that has an equally great design to him. I really hope he continues to show up in new continuities. He could be the Jango Fett to the Eradicon's Clone/Storm Trooper-ness.

    Remade Character: This one is a little difficult, but I'm going to go with TFP Bumblebee. It seems that Hasbro has taken the best ideas from both G1 and Movie Bumblebee, thrown in some R2-D2, and created a really great new take on Bumblebee. I can't wait to see more of him in the show, and I'm really looking forward to see how his toy turns out.

    Yeah, best new character has to go to Lockdown.

    Best remade character? I'm at a draw between TFA Ratchet and TFP Arcee.

    I like TFTM Barricade and I like how badass Bumblebee is in spite of no voice.

    Best remade goes to TFA Ratchet, with TFA Optimus a close runner up.

    Best new is a tie between Bulkhead and Lockdown, with Lugnut being a runner up.

    Tough call because there have been some great new characters and some really cool new twists on old characters.

    New I'm going to have to go with Lugnut. Just such a nice change of pace to have a Decepticon that gone all in on the Megatron vision with even the slightest thought of betraying him.

    Remake I'm going with Animated Blitzwing. Just a really fun character and I kind of like the idea that triple changers have three forms because they are insane with split personalities.
