    Its been a season and 1/3, 34 episodes and still no new autobot to the main cast. Someone please explain this to me, I'm really confused on this.
    BTW, Not a big fan of Wheeljack joining.

    Probably due to the budget. If that's the not the reason I have no idea why. BW had more characters at this point. So did Animated.

    When I read the title, at first, when my brain wasn't working for a second, I thought it meant there are dead Autobots joining the permanent cast.

    Deceptions:

    Megatron. Dreadwing. "Soundwave" (No voice actor and doesn't do much honestly, no character development) Knockout.

    Yep. Not much. More Decepticons please <.<

    Guys, new characters WILL come eventully so let's be more patiecne

    I mean it may be budget but there's also a good chance of the crew getting more to make more characters.

    Starscream and Airachnid don't ring a bell? Also the hell Soundwave has no character development. Just because he doesn't say anything doesn't mean he has no character.

    Starscream and Arachnid aren't really Deceptions. Being a Decepticon is different then being born an American, or Canadian, of Bosnian, ect. It is a political organization.

    Starscream and Arachnid don't fall into that group any longer. They are 'rogues'. They are a faction unto themselves.

    They aren't aligned with the Cons. And we all know the Vehicons can't do shit.

    They're still enemy TFs and would be Cons if they weren't such backstabbers. Not counting them is just silly.

    Well the writers said they upped the body count and the cast would expand, they probably meant the insecticon deaths and the insecticons being added as the new cannon fodder.

    That's probably not true and you know it.

    So Deceptions now = enemies?

    Are Mech Decepticons?

    Are Scraplets Decepticons?

    Stop being so picky. They are TFs that are opposing team Prime. They were also aligned with the Cons for a large part of the show.

    Why are people being so freaking pedantic about things like that?

    Because independents enemies are already outmatched by the Autobots in most encounters.

    I would want the Autobots to gain new castmembers once they are pressured, and seem like they are the ones who are outmatched.

    1,000,000 Vehicons couldn't beat Arcee with no legs given how they currently perform.

    As of right now, I actually would say the Decepticons have never seemed less threatening to the autobots.

    I don't know Megs seems pretty brutal. Starscream has become pathetic though. I love Cullen and Welker but this cast needs an infusion of new characters badly. DW needs more screen time and Wheeljack is a ghost at this point.

    We'll get a breath of fresh air once they can scrape together enough to pay the Rock for flashbacks.

    Or they'll just keep shoving MECH and Starscream down our throats. :rolleyes:

    Megs is not brutal. He beat three Autobots in Orion Pax and didn't even finish them off when he had plenty of time to. "I will never underestimate you again!" Yeah right.

    They would somehow make a new Autobot boring or ridiculously plot-powered. Let's keep these writers away from well-known characters.
