    In Exodus, we read that Lugnut and barricade guarded some building of megatrons (this happened in one of the earlier chapters). And Hasbro received to us that in Prime, that Breakdown was originally going to be scripted as Lugnut. If this was true, do you think that in an early version of the script of the show, knockout was originally barricade? Seeing as Lugnut and barricade were partnered together in Exodus and this show follows very closely to that book IMO.

    Actually, Knockout was the one who was originally supposed to be Lugnut, but that didn't sound nearly as sexy.

    Thank God too, I can't imagine anyone other than someone withTFA Lugnut's looks and personality carrying the name.

    It's crazy how Knockout, Breakdown and possibly Skyquake/Dreadwing could have been Lugnut.

    I'm glad we got Knockout instead of Barricade. Barricade is cool and all, but Knockout has a much more interesting personality. Plus, he's different from any character that has come before, which I like. It keeps things fresh.

    Also, :rip  Breakdown.

    No, wasn't it said on the season one DVD that Breakdown was originally going to be Lugnut?

    Barricade doesn't have sweet rims.

    Barricade would have been nice, but Knockout is awesome.

    Lugnut is in the same class as Bulkhead IMO

    Bit Blitzwing would be a cool addition, nutso that he is.

    I wouldn't complain about a Knockout repaint/retool as Barricade...
