    Sky Linx. The Autobots need at least some sort of advantage against the Decepticons. The Decepticons have thousands upon thousands of Vehicons & the Autobots don't even have a single generic character. I know this series is supposed to portray the Autobots as underdogs that always come out on top, but it's ridiculous when they defeat a brigade of Vehicons with their hands. At least give them a giant that eats Decepticons for breakfast.

    Jetfire or Silverbolt would be good choices for this series IMO.

    Too bad the wise cracker has been already taken by Smokescreen. Ironically Nolan North before him playing Smokescreen i wanted him as Wing Saber. :lol

    G1 Silverbolt with aspects of BW voiced by Kin Shriner

    A Jetfire version that's a blend of G1 and Cybertron vocied by Troy Bake

    Sky Lynx would be cool to see, even cooler if he's voiced by Patrick Stewart

    Skyfire, Whirl, or Air Raid.
    Its doubtful we'll see Blades since there already exists a Transformer by that name in the Aligned Continuity (An Effeminate Rescue Bot, no less) I doubt we'll see any Smaller Aircraft TF's (Since most Aircraft Transformers would end up being larger than Optimus Prime in either mode. I'm not even kidding about that, All my 1:48 Aircraft are larger than the Cab of G1 Reissue Optimus Prime, and they're in the same scale as him)

    Actually I could see whirl coming in, he'd be a nice balance for the teams personality, the kind of guy that's narcisstic, dick-headed, brash, trigger-happy and satiric.

    Certainly counter-act everyone elses over-all good guy personality (think about Whirl and WJ gettin into a fight, maybe even rivals).

    I'd like to see Dreadwing rebuilt and resurrected as an Autobot; take your pick.

    Id say go the way of the arielbots. The autobots are thin in rank and need air support badly. The combiner part also would give them an advantage they need.

    Besides I want to know why combiners are not deemed as acceptable anymore when we all love these things. Just look at the tfc toys hercules. A transformers prime style combiner would be pretty awesome.

    Seeing as how it IS beast hunters, Air Razor (slightly retooled into something more beast hunter-ish) might be a good choice.

    After that id probably go with Swoop for the whole bio organic thing.

    Other options include Silverbolt and Springer.

    Jetfire needs to be in Prime. He is my favourite Autobot flier.

    POWERGLIDE.

    He needs some more love, just like how Warpath has gotten the spotlight with War for Cybertron, Powerglide would be awesome to bring back out with Transformers Prime.

    I'm really tied between Cosmos and Sky Lynx I loved them both back in G1. They really do need more love, too, even in the 80's they seemed to get the short end of the stick, 'specially Cosmos. Sky Lynx less so given his massive ego.

    If Cosmos were to appear I wouldn't want him exactly as a flying saucer. More like some Cybertronian form he never needed to change. He'd fit alright into season three that way, too. This is assuming Humans DO end up finding out about the 'bots and 'cons. The Autobots could just tell him "Well looks like you don't need an Earth mode. Just keep what you've got, Cosmos."

    As for Sky Lynx, he would fit in PERFECTLY for Beast Hunters. While perhaps being at the least a Triple Changer, he wouldn't necessarily have to have multiple forms. Just the standard beast/bot mode would be enough for me. Just as long as he retains that awesome dragonesque form as in G1. And just to tie in his name a little better maybe his dragon mode could have a little feline inspiration. I can only imagine how awesome it would be to see Predaking and Sky Lynx having a fight to the death in dragon forms. Personally I'd want to see that a little more than a Predaking/Grimlock battle.
