Hello! I'd like to discuss something that's been on my mind for a while. (G1) Rodimus Prime could possibly be a better overall character compared to Optimus, why? Rodimus was flawed and had various challenges to overcome before being a "good" leader. Optimus was pretty much perfect, he could do anything and never really had any personal struggles. I think this makes Rodimus a better and more compelling character. We've seen Rodimus as a young bot who's been thrown into a dramatic dangerous situation and forced to take over, he's always felt guilty about being somewhat responsible for Optimus's death and never being able to live up to his glory. While it may have made him a terrible or bad leader, this made him a more interesting and in depth character and he improved overtime. I think Rodimus could be a good character for kids because of this, he's young and through trail and error, self doubt, and other obstacles he grew into a capable autobot leader. I've always loved prime and I was never a fan of Rodimus but after giving it a bit of thought I'm starting to think he was a more compelling character.
