    :lol  good one.




    He's not really a jackass. Come on, he is/was second in command of the entire Autobot army! In a real life situation, the way Team Prime acts (or most Transformers in general in every incarnation) would get them seriously reprimanded. Simply put: there's a chain of command, and without applying the appropriate respect to your superiors the whole operation could go kablooey.

    Love how most kids shows treat the rebel characters who break command as the only ones that are worth a damn, but that's not realistic at all.


    Ultra Magnus = strict, maybe a bit wound up too tight underneath, just like his MTMTE counterpart. But he's definitely not a jackass. :)

    The reason why TFA Sentinel Prime is such a enjoyable charecter is because he's a dick. Now, TFP Magnus is not a dick.

    These words they... they make no sense. The only good thing Sentinel brought to tbe table was Jazz, and thankfully he got to stay. Sentinel made me groan each time I saw him, he wasn't even entertaining in his dick-ititude.

    You are entitled to your opinion sir, but personally I was hoping Sentinel would get the Poochie treatment.

    He's a walking sterotype just like pretty much every other character on the show, especially in the beginning. Not really shocked or worried haha.

    What he said. Magnus is part of the elite guard so it's understandable. And I actually like the fact that he's by-the-book. Gives Wheeljack more reason to be a smartass :lol

    Magnus yo.

    Well if you look at the core cast, all of them fit a certain mold. You've got Optimus who's the quiet leader, Bulkhead who's the big guy, Arcee who's the female, Bumblebee who's the kid, Ratchet who's the somewhat bitter old guy, Wheeljack who's the defiant, etc.

    Its not until they actually have interaction past 5 minutes & with multiple situations that their personality & unique angles come through. Magnus hasn't had that chance yet, so that's kinda where I'm at right now.

    I think Magnus is a case of "you don't know what you got till it's gone."

    I thought Optimus was a bit stiff, but I'll be happy to have him back after a few more episodes of Magnus!

    Why wouldn't Magnus be strict and by-the-books?

    Okay, I see what you're saying.

    Though I do have to commend them for breaking the stereotypes where the humans are concerned. Usually, the 'leading man' (Jack) is represented.by some irresponsible punk slacker who gets in trouble all the time aka Vince.

    Instead we have Jack; a mature, responsible 16 year old who works part time and tries to stay out of trouble. The girl of the group is usually the mature, responsible one who has to keep her friends in line; often times she is the 'brain'. And if she's Asian, oh that's a WHOLE SLEW of stereotypes right there! It's standard' to make her quiet, studeous and whatever other associated Asian stereotype.

    Not so with Miko. She is rowdy, reckless and loud. She does have her moments, though. A
    nd she's a fun character.

    So when it comes to the humans, I commend the writers for not only the racial diversity, but for breaking the molds where stereotypes are concerned.

    Nobody ever cares about Raff. Optimus didn't even bring him back that snow ball.

    If they don't end the season with Raf getting that damn snowball there's going to be another Egyptian Revolution.
