    Arcimus Prime. Make it happen, Hasbro.

    I like this idea. I figured The Fallen would just be Unicron's singular emissary, but a team is cooler (and nets us more toys :lol ).

    As much as I admire Arcee, I still don´t see her as candidate for the succession. Any proof of her skills as a leader?

    She twists dudes' heads off with her ankles. I think that's proof enough.

    Arcee's too angsty about her dead boyfriend to be leader. But really, her character arc seems to be leading to her becoming the next Prime, so I would not doubt it in the least.

    It's "One Shall Rise", not "One Shall Fall". It's a play on Prime's catchphrase.

    I'm still waiting for her to just completely break down and go "My partners are DEEAAAAAAAD!!!" whilst slapping Bumblebee or something.

    Personally I think she should slap Airachnid.

    After cutting her head off.

    It must be some kind of Cybertronian curse to

    A) Have Cliffjumper's bodystyle or
    B) Know Arcee at all

    Considering that was one of the Original Thirteen, I doubt she'd end up with that name.

    I like how that sounds.

    As much as I would hate to see Optimus die, I think it would be refreshing and interesting to see Arcee become Prime.

    This would also give us our first female leader of the Autobots and would further cement Arcee's status as the best female character in the franchise's history.

    NOTE TO ALL:
    WFC is not what happened before TFP. TF: Exodus was based on WFC and Exodus is the official beginning of the Aligned/Prime continuity. See tfwiki for more details.

    Neither is technically the 100% literal version of the events. They're just rough approximations.

    Ebay:
    Judging from what we’ve seen so far, I’m pretty sure she’s past this point.

    I’m with those that feel Hasbro or whoever just slapped War For Cybertron on the cover the book just to give the book sales a little nudge, as they don’t exactly line up. The first half of the book could work with the story in WFC, but not the second half. However, I would still have issues accepting them as the same as I take big issues with several small issues that don’t work/too different.

    If WFC were the original cartoon, Exodus would be the Marvel Comics.

    I think this was the intention.
