    If BumbleBee was painted red and called CliffJumper?
    Prowl was renamed Beachcomber with a different alt mode?
    Ratchet was Iron Hide?
    Bonehead was Springer?

    The animated BumbleBee seems to have more in common with G1 CliffJumper than either G1's BumbleBee or even Bay's Bumblebee.

    Animated Prowl seems to have more in common with G1 Beachcomber than G1 Prowl.

    well, I'll give you Prowl/Beachcomber, but Bumblebee doesn't seem much like a trigger-happy, paranoid, McCarthyist.

    Prowl is NOT Beachcomber. How dare you even make a comparison. Beachcomber or "Mr. Geologist" was a tree-huggin hippy claimin we're all one with the universe crap. Prowl on the other hand is a independent ass of a ninja.

    Beachcomber - tree hugger
    Prowl - ninja
    Beachcomber - tree hugger
    Prowl - ninja
    heh?

    Bumblebee as Cliffjumper? I don't see the similarity in character.

    Bonehead? WTF? I don't see how you got springer out of him at all, aside from the fact that he's green.

    Prowl? There's a fine line between liking nature, and hugging trees

    Ratchet? Aside from being an old war hero, is really nothing like IH. IH was a tad hostile, but no way near as grumpy as Ratchet.

    The character is always wanting to go.

    They could do a story of how Springer's brain was somehow damaged.

    Cliffjumper had bladder problems? There have been tons of "all action" characters, narrowing it down to Cliffjumper seems ill-fitting when there are more characters out there much more fitting


    Then that would be changing Springer's character, making the point of him even beeing called Springer FUBAR.

    Again: His respect for nature does not mean he's a hippie/doped-up/tree-hugger. He's more ninja than nature lover.

    Still, he's tree huggerish. Not Beachcomber, but not just a bad ass ninja either.

    Bumblebee is way more like Cheetor than he is Cliffjumper. He's got the same impatient, looking for action attitude that Cheetor had throughout most of Beast Wars, especially the begging.

    Tree-huggish, no. Bad-ass ninja, oh yes he is. I assume you missed the first four eps where he took on Megs and Starscream himself, and almost beat the motion sensors in the fourth ep. 9unfortunately, Megatron saw him, but nobody, even now, knew about him)

    I have yet to see any "make love not war" from him yet or any "lets all sit down and sing kum-by-yah!" (sp? I dunnuh). He knows what the nature-loving ends and the fighting business starts.

    Deffinately. If he follows the same aging/maturing proccess Cheetor did, I will be most happy.

    I didn't say he wasn't a bad ass ninja, I said he wasn't just a bad ass ninja.
