    So who's your favourite G1 Autobot leader?
    Choices are;

    a) Optimus Prime
    b) Rodimus Prime
    c) Ultra Magnus (Yes, he counts, due to the 86 movie)

    The question feels rhetorical since it's pretty much a guarantee that Optimus Prime is going to win.

    Optimus did some dodgy stuff... but things always worked out. Ultra Magnus was a big nervous girl about everything in the '86 movie... And Rodimus... well he stepped up to the plate and was really awesome in the movie, but then he got all unsure about himself all the time and kind of became really, weak and annoying. Like hanging around Ultra Magnus all the time made him a big sissy. I voted RP for the movie...

    Hey, how about broadening the topic beyond just the dull and predictable G1 cartoon? How about including the comics?

    e.g Grimlock, Fort Max, Perceptor, Prowl, Xaaron etc.

    Well I had to pick Optimus Prime. I would have picked Rodimus Prime but he really wasn't Prime long enough to really leave his mark on the world. Say what you will about Roddy. If he had been around for nine million years like Oppy he would have done fine.

    All Hail Rodimus Prime!!!

    He didn't need to combine with a trailer to beat Galvatron.

    Technically, the various fictions gave us a lot more G1 Autobot leaders.

    Grimlock had 2 goes in the Marvel comics. He actually got the Ark airborne again.

    Fortress Maximus/Galen/Spike led his Autobots for an initial period of peace on Nebulos. Also beat up Galvatron.

    Vector Prime transcends dimensions according to the Collector's Club so can in my book be considered G1.

    IDW gave us Nemesis Prime/Nova Prime.

    All comic series gave us Sentinel Prime who admittedly

    Optimus only comes across as great because of all the screen time he gets though I only like the Movie version.

    It's gotten really boring seeing new Ops every slaggin' year.

    I put Ultra Magnus, just because the other two are terrible. Optimus never took the initiative to defeat Megatron until the movie, and then he died! Rodimus had the same problem, but atleast his character was good. Magnus really had it together sometimes, even if he was a little slow on the uptake, but he beats the other two. Plus, he does care how beautiful it is, but he still needs the bomb.

    Hmm that's an interesting perspective. To be fair it's all because of the way cartoons were written back then.

    That's a no-brainer. Which Autobot leader reclaimed Cybertron from the Decepticons, organized multiple galactic peace conferences, held back Decepticon aggression on multiple planets, and destroyed the ultimate force of evil in the universe?

    Rodimus Prime, of course.

    All Optimus did was bum around inside a volcano and blow up Megatron's wacky invention of the week.

    BLASPHEMER!!!!!! :D 

    Really, UM never wanted to lead at all, so he's out.
    Rodimus was a temp.
    Prime, though sleeping on the job 4 million years, had the record, the People skills, the comraderie....

    But from what i read of Grimlock's Tenure, i think he coulda slaughtered the 'cons and finished the whole faction fuss.

    I've been a staunch Rodimus Prime supporter since 1986. As far as I'm concerned, he'll always be the better character.
