    Why is Arcee not getting her own stories, not getting enough lines, and everything....
    I mean I love Bulkhead (He seems like the autobot who is getting the most stories, lines, and so on) just as much as everyone else.... But I want some action with Arcee!
    She is the first Fembot I care about because she is not a stereotype.... YES I AM LOOKING AT YOU G1 ARCEE!

    Calm down, bro. We're only ten episodes in.

    You can write some Arcee-centric fanfiction in the meanwhile; it might help.

    Yeah, I am starting to dislike all this focus on Bulkhead.
    But that's probably because Bulkhead was the least compeling character in Darkness Rising, so they are making him deeper and well-rounded to match the others characters.

    Arcee, on the other hand, was almost the main character of Darkness Rising.

    We already had a fair ammount of Bulkhead episodes ["Con Job", "Deus Ex Machina" etcetera] and Bumblebee episodes ["Masters and Students" and "Scraplets" in a degree], we will have an Arcee episode soon enough.

    We still have 16 more episodes to go in this season. I'm sure we'll get some more Arcee centric stories.

    And they're working on season 2. I'm sure she'll have some good moments in there as well.

    I'm not against having Arcee have more development. I think it would be great to have her character developed more.

    But I'd like to point out that she did have a lot of development in "Darkness Rising" which was five episodes in of itself. She also had a lot of interaction and screen time in Scraplets when she and Optimus got trapped in antartica.

    So its not really that bad. I think she did get a bit of screen time. And I think she'll get more screen time in a short while.

    Yeah, she was pretty much the star of teh pilot movie. You can probably tell im a fan of this version of her, but I'm happy for her to take a backseat to focus on the others. Wish Bulky wasn't being so central though. I'd quite like a ratchet episode.

    Well Bulkhead has only been the center of 2 episodes. So calm down.

    I'm not really digging this series so far, but I have been following it and I feel like Bumblebee is surprisingly the character getting the least focus in the series. It may have been a mistake keeping him voiceless; even a 'radio voice' like in the films might have been better. As it is, I think the writers rightly understand that nobody wants to listen to 'Bee beeping and booping through an entire episode, so he's strictly background so far.

    Yeah, like others said she was the main bot in the pilot movie, so the writers are having her take a backseat so we can learn more about B, Bulk, and (hopefully we'll get an OP-centric episode somewhere down the line. The big guy needs some development)

    I have a feeling Op will take the spotlight whenever megs gets repaired. (Looking like soon now that Knock Out's in the scene.) They've got some shared history that'd be nice to get expanded.

    I do agree, we need more Arcee-time. She's the best character!

    It's kind of like Beast Wars. Some episodes would be Rattrap heavy and some episodes you'd hardly see the character at all.

    I think there has just been more focus on Bulkhead lately because he's the bot who will talk more freely about his past so he's need for all those little bits that help build a bigger Transformers world outside of what's happening on Earth at the moment. Arcee at least so far doesn't seem like the type to share many details about her past.

    Patience is a virtue, we're not that far in, I'm sure there will be some Arcee focussed episodes later on which include (With any luck) flashbacks to her and Cliffjumper.

    Don't go hating on Bulkhead, I like the big guy.

    Never said I hate him.... In fact I love him, the fact that he is a wrecker makes me love him more, and all his parts of his personality.
    But what I'm saying, we need Arcee to just get some more development.

    But I do know, that we will get alot of development for her.
    I just don't want my first likable Autobot Fembot to be pushed to the side if that is understandable!

    I would like to see a story with Arcee. Maybe meeting Cliffjumper, first date, then going to Energon Lake, staying in the car...


    Yeah, i'm starting to scare myself.


    But an Arcee story would be interesting.
