    We're getting hints that the Exodus and Exiles books are in countinuity with Transformers Prime seeing how the backstory of Optimus and Megatron is the same as in Exodus. In the book we have the Minicons playing a fairly good role in the plot by sabatoging many of the ares around Cybertron. So if they do appear in the show how would you think they wil be and what function?

    You're probably thinking in a manner like Armada,but seeing how the show's movie inspired,they can appear in the way Frenzy did by playing as inflatrtors,

    Foe example ,Barricade can have Frenzy and Rumble be his Minicon Partners acting as spys and inflatraters. I know Franzy and Rumlbe are Soundwave's personal minons but I honestly don't know how they will fit in his body logically seeing how he's designed. Besides it's also a homage to how Barricade and Frenzy worked in the 2007 movie!:) 

    Other ideas like Prowl having someone like Highwire or something. It may not happen but still what are your thoughts?

    As long as they explain why they are there and use them to tell a good story, then yes. If they play them like "Armada" did, then no

    I wouldn't mind seeing minicons in Prime. They're one of the thirteen templates for a TF so it's likely they exist in large numbers.

    I'm just wondering what they'd have them turn into that's small enough. Perhaps a CD player of some sort?

    Isn't Laserbeak considered to be a Minicon now? If he is, then we already have a Minicon in Prime.

    Forgot about that but you're right, the deployers are now classified as Minicons.

    Still he doesn't have much of a presence so it would be nice to have an actual character that's a minicon.

    I hope we see a DOTM-Laserbeak-like Buzzsaw in the show someday [since Prime-Laserbeak appears to be a mindless drone].

    Hmmm...I think it'd be cool to see Rumble or Frenzy then, or both I guess.

    If they're R2D2 impersonations like Bumblebee, **** no.

    They are cute but definitely will not wish to see them in Prime series.

    I was actually thinking that they can instead speak in Cybertronian in a fast pace like Frenzy did in the Movies. In case if you're wondering if Raf can understand they are saying, he can't. He can understand beeps and clicks.but he can't understand an alien language!:lol

    If it's Frenzy or Rumble (or both), absolutely. If it's some random Minicon, then I'm not sure. At least Frenzy and Rumble can talk normally (though they prefer to talk Minicon-talk with each others) which can't be said about other possible Minicons.

    ... I can already imagine a Minicon rolling around Autobot base or the Nemesis just like Wall-E...

    This. And not in the "every robot character has their own little Minicon"-way. Especially for the Autobots. They already have small "bonded sidekicks" in the form of humans. Now, if the Decepticons were to get some characters such as Frenzy, Rumble, etc., and have them be labelled as "Minicons", I'd be cool with that.

    Maybe even have them be a Decepticon invention created by [insert Decepticon character here] as an experiment.

    You know I can definitely see Knockout making miniature robots that look exactly like him.

    He's vain enough to do something like that.

    We've already seen one Minicon - Laserbeak - so I wouldn't mind more.
