    She'll end up being Mikaela's protector and probably be her scooter or some sort of motorcycle.

    It makes too much sense not to happen like that.

    Given that was basically her role in an old draft and given that they've already spent however many dollars working on her CGI model I'd say it's a pretty safe bet she'll be in the sequel. I still hope that she never shows up though.

    I really don't want any of the third Series characters in, I want to stick to S1 and S2... If they put Arcee in it won't take long for Hot Rod *Crys*

    I got nothing against Arcee, she was originaly going to be in, but I just don't want Hot Rod or the others in.

    But if one had to be put in out of that series, I would say Springer would be a good choice.

    It doesn't really matter because the movie is so different from the original cartoon, it will pretty much be an "in name only" type of deal.

    The only characters in the movie that stayed close to their G1 personalities were Optimus & Jazz. Might've been a slight trace in Ironhide, but the rest had nothing to do with G1.

    Unfortunatly, I agree. Never since BW and kinda BM has there been a female TF who isn't retarded girly-girl. (Blackarachnia doesn't count because in BW, it was all part of here manipulative character)

    If they put Arcee in a movie of course she's going to be a girly-girl? Have we forgotten the entire reason Arcee was put in the 1986 movie in the first place?

    Were Arcee not in TFTM, you'd have a movie with literally an all-male cast. Arcee was created for TFTM for the same reason that Lola Bunny was created for Space Jam: to have a female character that the women can "relate to". Never mind the fact that Transformers was a series primarily aimed at boys...

    If they put Arcee in the movie, her entire purpose will be the token female character that she's always been. And I'm willing to bet that she'll be just as useless and tacked-on as she was in G1.

    List of Arcee's accomplishments in G1:
    - Reminding the Autobots that Kup and Hot Rod are still outside Autobot City when it transformed.
    - Nearly missing the escape shuttle, allowing a moment of tension in the movie
    - Accidentally shooting the inside of Unicron, causing it to flood (although I will grant her that in a roundabout way, she saved Spike, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper and Jazz because had she not done that, Daniel wouldn't have been taken to the smelting pit.)
    - Being Springer's wisecracking "gunner" in FFoD
    - Getting capped in the knee by Cyclonus in the Autobots' tomb
    - Being turned into a human along with Rodimus, Magnus and Springer (though that ep was kinda cool)
    - Becoming Daniel's Headmaster body

    Now, compare that with any other Autobot like say... Wheelie...
    - Directing the Dinobots to the Sharkticon pit to save Hot Rod and Kup
    - Delivering Metroplex's transforming cog with Blurr (though royally screwing the mission up several times...)
    - Saving Daniel from Cyclonus on the Autobot records asteriod
    - Speaking in annoying rhymes throughout the movie and series in a whiny girly voice


    So you can basically say that Arcee was more useless than Wheelie in G1. And everyone hates Wheelie...

    I say step one in making her less of a stereotypical girly-girl type character, is ditch the barbie-pink color scheme. Fuscha, or even a shade of purple would automatically decrease her token status, at least visually.

    Aside from the diff in voice acting, Ironhide was still kind of his shoot-first-ask-later type guy.. he wasn't as loud as he was in G1 though and he had a slight brit accent...

    How did tidal wave become such a popular character as SS, soundwave, shockwave and those guys all of a sudden? I honestly dont hold him up there in the list of favorite decepticons or autobots.

    I actually like the idea of Arcee being Mikaela's motorcycle; it would be a good way of incorporating the whole humans-teaming-with-Autobots aspect (something that was pretty poorly executed in the Unicron trilogy IMO).
    As for whether or not to have season 3 characters, well my brother and I were talking about this after we saw the movie. We came up with a question: If you could add one Autobot and one Decepticon into the cast for the sequel, then who would you choose? For an Autobot, I said Hot Rod simply because I'm one of the rare fans of Hot Rod. For a Decepticon, I said Galvatron; I'm not a fan of Galvatron, but if they're going to use a new villain, then he makes sense.
    The problem with Hot Rod, though, is that Hasbro sponsored the movie but Takara owns the rights to the name Hot Rod. Granted the producers could probably pay for the rights to use the name with relative ease, but I just don't see it happening.
