While the "Optimus and Megatron are old friends" concept is certainly becoming a tired song and dance, I'm honestly just glad to see a pre-war Cybertron that isn't terrible. Every other portrayal of Cybertron before the war ranges from being a crumbling society plagued by discontent to a repressive theocracy. It's nice to see that, while it isn't perfect, Cybertron is a functional utopia (with problems hidden beneath the surface, but as I said before, at least it isn't a chrome-plated dystopia). ...It doesn't mean much at this point to talk about how I'd approach it, but I'd like to see a "average bot rises to greatness" take on Orion/Optimus again. And I mean truly great. IDW-1 Optimus was plagued by his self-doubt and well-intentioned but sloppily handled moral ambiguity, so I'd like it if we got a "back to the basics" Orion who becomes, unambiguously, a hero. But I'll wait and see what "Senator Orion" brings to the table, I guess.
