    I know that its a bit early for this, but with AOE releasing for most people in the next week or so there isn't much left that is up for debate or speculation.
    I was thinking that since its been confirmed that
    Optimus flies into space or god knows where to go after his "creator" at the end of AOE
    , will there be a new Autobot leader? Maybe Bee can become a sort of Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime character? Or will TF5 focus on
    Prime's "Adventures in the Cosmos"?
    It would be kind of strange to have
    Optimus Prime not appear in a Transformers film.
    I think they might have written themselves into a problem here. Optimus is obviously the most well known character in the franchise besides Bee,
    they can't have him not be in the movie
    . So what do you think? Do you think that Quintessons are involved here? Maybe Unicron?

    Maybe Drift, I can see Crosshairs but I feel like Drift has the most potential. Kind of a shame we lose Ratchet and Sideswipe, I feel like if they were still around they would fill in for Optimus.

    Same goes for Ironhide, always loved the idea of him filling in for Optimus.

    I also feel like Drift would be most eligible, but given the producer's and the audience's obsession with Bumblebee I feel like it will be him. That would be interesting as well as apparently Drift has a disliking towards Bee in AOE.

    Ironhide would be the best option considering he replaced Jazz as second in command

    OP will just come back for some reason, or Nemesis Prime will come back and think it is OP and the twist is that it is Nemesis Prime and so Transformers 6 will be the search for OP

    Hmmm I think we should definitely see the Autobots try to work together without their leader this time. I could easily see either Bee or Drift filling in for Prime. I could also see Hound filling in. But, I'm going with Bee if he gets his voice back lol.

    That wouldn't work for several reasons.

    You guys know he's in RotDS, right? Which takes place after AoE? And that no critic had mentioned that HUGE plot point?

    The Movieverse part of the story takes place after AoE. And Prime is there, leading the Autobots. And we know it takes place after, because everyone knows each other a and Prime's in his new body.

    Lockdown dies in AOE
    for the reasons listed above, If rotds indeed takes place after AOE, then the game producers majorly screwed up. I wouldn't take the video game as canon. the whole game feels rushed anyway.

    From what I've heard about of the game and seen from it anyways is that its a cheaply made knock off. It looks terrible and has one of the dumbest "artifacts" ever. No way that poorly written plot is tied in to AoE.

    Even if ROTDS takes place afterward, they will ignore it if they want to when making the next film. The movie folks are not going to be bound by tie-in comics or games when it comes down to it. Sure, they don't outright go our of their way to disregard them, but if there's something cool they want, they'll do it.

    Hell, there have been minor plot points between the films alone that conflict a bit, let alone with other materials.

    Maybe something like TFP where Magnus arrives and takes charge.

    Please let us have a movie Magnus.
