    image if both prime and megs were never thought of. in this twisted version of transformers who would you have lead the respective factions. to make this more interesting you can choose to have a autobot lead the decepticons and vice versa its your call though they would obviously change factions

    Shockwave/Decepticons
    Ultra Magnus (TFA version)/Autobots

    I can't see any Autobots leading the Decpticons, or vice versa. They don't fight for the same reasons.

    Are we saying Optimus Prime = Optimus Primal? Or are they two separate bots?

    If so, my Autobot team would be lead by Optimus Primal.
    If not, my Autobot team would be lead by Armada Hot Shot ... the kid had some skills.

    The Decepticon team would be lead by Animated Shockwave.

    Yeah, Optimus Primal to lead the Autobots for me. Easy choice.

    Decepticons is a bit of a thinker though... I've never been a fan of any of the other leaders they had in the comics - Shockwave is frequently undone by his own logic - and in the cartoon Galvatron is Megatron Anyway, so by default he doesn't exist either. I guess I'd have to go for Scorponok.

    Insanity rules most of the other candidates out IMO, such as Thunderwing, Jhiaxus and Overlord.

    Beachcomber for Heroic Scientific Decepticons, Starscream's seekers as space pirate showoffs and Warpath for Warmongering militaristic Autobots.

    Fliers get Heroic Renegades lead by Terrorsoar (red and silver WWII Stunt monoplane, others get peaceful planes) and murderous Stormhunters (military high-tech and concept weapon planes) led by Air Raid.

    I think it'd be a pretty cool gimmick if the Autobots worked off some kind of rotating leadership like the Justice League, so every week a new Autobot was in charge, and this would lead to hilarious and awesome consequences, depending on the Autobot, all the while providing character development and an opportunity to teach the kids some lesson by the end of the episode.

    Decepticons are lead by Cy-Kill, Autobots by Leader-1.

    It'd be a trip!

    Could also have Prowl as leader, so the respective leaders have their face as the faction symbol, more or less. Just like the G2 Autobots.

    primal is prime as well so by default he doesn't exsist either.
    that's how i took the series as followed.
    primal = prime
    rhynox = ironhide/ratchet
    cheetor = bumble bee
    ratrap = really any autobot that not a main character but is still in alot of episodes.

    to me primal and prime are one in the same.
    i'm not completly sure they didn't say that some time in beast wars.
    my understanding of the show was prime and primal were the same bot but they used the ape form because of no vehicles.

    Then you desperately need to watch Beast Wars again, especially third season. Because anybody who's seen Beast Wars knows for fact that Prime and Primal are not the same person.

    Anyway, for me I just go with Prowl or Grimlock leading the Autobots and Shockwave leading the Decepticons.

    A trip straight to hell! :D 

    I'd actually pick Magnus for the Autobots and Shockwave for the cons.

    Starscream would lead the Decepticons easily. No one else wants to lead, nor has the capability. The Triple-changers are just not as smart, Shockwave can't lead from Cybertron, and Soundwave is too uncrazamatic for anyone to follow.

    Would he be successful as a leader? It's an 80's cartoon, of course not.

    The Autobots I see as being more of a committee than having a singular leader. Rather than Optimus always having the final say, we'd instead have Ironhide, Jazz, and Prowl coming to decisions together.

    Though I do think with them leading the Autobots, they may not have the team Optimus had the luxury to. And the Dinobots would have been left on Dino Island as they proceed to nuke the damn thing.

    You're wrong, dude. Here's proof:
    Optimus Primal - Transformers Wiki

    Also, IDW's Magnificent Bastard Prowl for the 'Bots, Marvel-era Ratbat for the 'Cons.

    The Autobots would be led by Inferno and the Decepticons by Straxus.
