I've been thinking about the "thirteen primes" thing. I know some of them are listed in various series, and I guess the new show has given us names for all 13, but... I'm more interested in the general idea than the current implementation. Now I'm trying to come up with a list of thirteen "prime" characters as a kind of made-up bunch that actually have figures available. Here's what I've got so far: 1) Vector Prime (really obvious) 2) Nexus Prime / Nexus Maximus (also really obvious) 3) Alpha Trion (again, I think this is an obvious one) 4) Optimus Prime (see #5 - I think two polar opposites makes for good mythic characters) 5) Scourge (see #4) (if available, get the "black repaint" of whichever figure you used for Optimus) 6) Leo Prime (representing beasts) 7) Omega Prime 8) Sentinel Maximus (TFCC) 9) Megatron (because even the bad guys should be represented, and he is, after all, Optimus Prime's nemesis) 10) Megazarak (see above, potentially acting as The Fallen) 11) Logos Prime / Soundblaster 12) Perceptor (representing mini-cons / micromasters) Primus and Unicron can't be on the list, either, given that Primus was supposed to be the one who created them to fight Unicron. Who else could go on this list? Do you have your own "thirteen"? Again, the catch is: the character must have a figure available, so one could theoretically make a display shelf of these guys.
