And still not a phenomenal dude.
I actually like Rodimus Prime being the successor to Optimus so I went with that one.
I never really saw him as a leader. Technically he was the one Optimus actually chose but he didn't really want the job and didn't seem any good at it for the short time he had.
He seemed a little better but again I didn't really see him as Optimus' successor. Mainly because Optimus was a leader to all Autobots while Bumblebee just lead a small group of them. He did OK but he was never on the same level that Optimus was.
These all seem like rather random options... except maybe Jazz who did seem to be second in command in G1 till Ultra Magnus showed up in the movie.
These two I'd be ok with introducing to an American audience under new names but I just don't know enough about them to really care one way or the other.
No... just no. He can lead the Dinobots but that's it.
Other/Create a new character
This I think has the same appeal as the Japanese series leaders. Those guys would essentially be new characters to am American audience.
So of the options Rodimus Prime is the only one who really feels like a true replacement to Optimus Prime to me.
This may sound crazy, but in my mind, Dai Atlas was the last Autobot leader. I want to see who takes over from him.
I chose Rodimus, but I'd like to give Metalhawk a shot, he could actually turn into an amazing leader. But his name ooff...Metalus Prime?
I voted for "other". My choice should be obviousness. *Points at username.*
He shows many times to be a capable leader and fighter, especially in IDW's run. He's strong, confident and charismatic, not a self-doubting leader(Rodimus), and he's not a rule-following police either(Ultra Magnus). He is really underrated.
As a TF weeb, i'll go with Star Saber but agree on the Springer Part. He obviously seems to be the most competent to me
Yeah, even though I previously brought up Magnus, Springer does seem to be the next logical successor after Rodimus going strictly by what the original cartoon presented us.
But, y'know what? Who says it has to be an Autobot? Thunderwing had a connection to the matrix in the old comics.
Ye but he's kind of insane and too ruthless.
Wheelie should be a voting option too.
I never really looked at Ultra Magnus as a true successor to Optimus Prime. Ultra Magnus's job was to basically keep the matrix warm until the next true Prime was chosen. Though having said that I'd still like to have seen him being in charge for longer than half a movie. If not him then Grimlock he's always had a somewhat aggressive leadership.
Im actually embarrassed and ashamed I didnt think of her, because truth be told I had Arcee as an option but removed her in favor of Ironhide, but Elita-1 makes sense as a legit candidate
Rodimus Prime. The chosen one. I have always loved Hotrod!
