    Interesting idea, but I'm pretty sure it's been said that Optimus is the last of the Primes.

    I'm calling the fire truck NotInferno until we get confirmation on who the hell he is.

    I remember he also mentioned something in that thread about how funny it was that fans always assume all characters are male.

    ...It's Firestar!

    OK, please don't shoot the messenger here.

    I was hanging out around the parking lot on Clinton Street where the vehicles were parked today (waiting for my dinner to be ready at the restaurant next door) and one of the security guards kept on pointing to the fire truck and telling people it was "Sentinel Prime."

    After I picked up my dinner and took some quick video I asked him who the fire truck was, and he said it was Sentinel Prime, and then he pointed to Optimus and said "he's Optimus' father."

    So, this security guard could have been messing with me, or the real crew could have been messing with him, but that's a pretty specific thing for someone to say.

    I could see that. At the very least it makes more sense that Rodimus Prime being his father.

    As for the possibility of it being his father (no matter what name it's called), I still think it's a possibility, even with the whole "he's the last Prime" part to RotF's storyline. Say during a pre-Earth battle when Optimus's father was still around, something could happen to him that makes the others believe that he's dead, but in reality he's lost in space. Then for TF3 he somehow finds his way to Earth. Maybe being led by the invitation his son sent out at the end of TF1.

    We'll just have to wait and see.

    sounds like a good concept to me & could work well with the whole space race theme if done right
