By pillars, I mean Optimus, bee, megatron. After the trailer for the Netflix series dropped...it got me thinking... Are we brave enough to move away from another TF story involving the same archetypes/characters? Outside of G1 S3 where primes dead and rodimus is leader (though prime does come back)...just about every TF show (for the western market) will always feature prime, megs, and bee, and in some cases, a character like bee. Personally...i would LOVE it. I'd love it if they designed a show around a timeline SOOOOO far in the future, where there's no more need for a prime because cybertron (or another planet) is at peace, and it's been that way for over a millennia. But of course, war is a part of the TF mythology...so you'll have a villain that is megatron in spirit, and a protagonist that's so far removed from prime, BUT like a prime, will rise in the ranks and lead his rag tag bunch to victory. Hey, I love prime, bee, megs...but, I want something new. Bold, daring. Most of all, I just want new characters that are sooo removed from what's been established before. Yeah, I sound like I'm taking crazy pills...but...does anyone else here feel the same? Anyone? Hello???
