    An Autobot? That's interesting! Good to see we're getting new Bots!

    Probably something Frank Welker said ;) 

    It could be the return of Wheeljack - though he's not new "to the show" as he's appeared before.

    Well, you are my source for that bit of news :)

    More to the point, this confirms our beautiful Knockout is back in season 2!

    The Autobots need a flyer. I'm hoping for good 'ol Powerglide!

    This also confirms that Starscreem is still around. Given his current status it bears pointing out.

    I hope it's someone new, or at the very least a character that hasn't been homaged several times.

    It'll probably be Ironhide though as we've seen a toy.

    I really like this idea! Powerglide would be a really cool addition to the Autobot team (and funny too, if he keeps his need to show off :lol ).

    The only issue that I could see with Powerglide is that the Autobots seem intent on keeping a low profile at the moment, and a red jet may detract from that, unless they keep him in the base until he's needed (which I kinda don't want). I would also like to see Warpath in the series, but he would suffer from the same issues as Powerglide.


    That is, of course, assuming the notion of stealth isn't thrown out the window after Unicron's arrival.

    I'm thinking that since star saber was only in one series, he should show up if its an autobot flyer. He could just be red plane called saber, without the booster upgrade.

    Other than that I'd like Jazz to show up.

    Another thought: the new 'bot could just be a flashback character.

    I was thinking that too.

    :D

    I'd like to think Grimlock but I doubt he'd be a Season 2 character, they'll probably put the dinobots off until Season 3 or late Season 2.

    As expected, I'm betting on Ironhide, since he's got a toy already. But hey, new Autobot bruiser? Maybe that's a sign Bulkhead is getting the axe? .O.

    My money's on Ironhide. Didn't we get a toy listing or something that said Ironhide?

    Edit: Wiki says there'll be a commander-class Ironhide in the first couple waves.

    Based on info from Botcon or Comic-Con, one of the main Autobots is going to die. We know it won't be Optimus or Bumblebee for marketing reasons. The only other Autobot we know about via future toys is Ironhide, which Hasbro claimed they had no plans for in the show. That could be a red herring to cover that he'll be replacing someone else. That leads to me thinking Bulkhead is going to die and Ironhide is going to replace him.

    Just speculation, and I'd love to be surprised and be proven wrong. We shall see...
