    How exciting! I hope the Autobot cast continues to grow a bit.

    I'm thinking air support also, the Autobots really need it. With ancient evil starting to pop-up, maybe a Prime version of RotF Jetfire?

    IMO they've put too much into the character at this point to just kill him off I think. They're not going to want to disenfranchise any possible girl viewers they are targeting with the Miko/Bulkhead team. I could only see this working if they "kill" him, then rebuild him with dark engergon and Prime does his "You've been rebuilt so I'm just going to rename you" thing.

    I'd rather see Arcee get the axe than Bulkhead. She can go out like Dinobot in BW, save the whole planet and avenge her dead friends as a bonus.

    I want Jazz, Tracks or Rodimus. But I would love Rodimus, he always gets the short stick (except for IDW).

    Why has anyone to die in first place? I mean the Autobots are so few, why not just add new ones to their roster, without anyone dying. The Decepticons outnumber the Bots by far, so they could actually need some reinforcements. And it is a bit boring to see all the time the same characters over and over. The Decepticons could introduce every now and then more characters too. All in all the whole show needs to pace up a bit.

    If you look at Transformers Prime on IMDB they have James Remar currently listed for unknown character......could be a possibility he will voice a TF Prime sideswipe or another character!!

    I would have to say my first guess would be Ironhide.

    But it might be an idea to think what sort of character we could see a use for say Hotrod or Kup.

    Sideswipe might work maybe or even Sunstreaker... but I can't see them doing just one of those...

    Prowl would a good one though as Prowl would benefit from being more defined in a Police Car form (assuming they don't make him a male ARCEE). Perhaps for the same reason you could argue for any Autobot whom they could really define as they wish ;

    Huffer, Gears, Pipes, Tailgate (opps he's dead), Windcharger (seems like a good idea that one), Dion (unlikely but interesting), Ultra Magnus (I don;t think he's needed really unless he's there to replace Optimus), Sentinel Prime (could be very interesting), Hoist/Grapple/ Red Alert/Trailbreaker/Brawn (no real need for them to similar to Bulkhead or Ratchet), Inferno (could work quite well for similar reasons to Prowl) - they could also do a newish Fire-bot (Pyro, Heatwave or Hotzone) instead.

    I could see Pyro working really well especially if they say he's been attached to The British for the last 3 years and he comes back with a Knighthood and a funny accent.

    Many people seem to think that any new characters would likely be one suitable to replace another that dies. so any of the ones to similar to Bulkhead (Outback (Fallback)/Brawn, IronFist (Fistitron) etc..).

    But if I'm pushed to pick a couple I'd say Prowl or Inferno.

    P.s. (Movie inspired Dino, Sideswipe or Jolt is not such a bad idea either I suppose)

    P.P.S - Powerglide might be to weak to fight Decepticon Flyers but Jetfire probably could scrap Megatron or Starscream in the air... I suppose you could have an Aerial Autobot if they are a Helicopter though like Blades, Evac, Rotorstorm, OverRun, Quickstrike, Whirl, or Blazemaster.

    Or go Vintage and make an Autobot Propellor Plane out of someone like Highbrow.

    Rotorstorm would be fun as it would mirror their existing use of Skyquake nicely

    I hope it's either Ironhide or Prowl.

    Ultra Magnus, Hot Rod, Warpath, Air Raid or even Jazz would suffice.

    Come on Roadbuster, I mean it could happen it'd look pretty sweet with the movie verse chest design and more guns than Trypticon. Ironhide, Shockwave, Sixshot, or maybe even Rodimus would be pretty cool to though.

    Wheeljack was already introduced, as Bulkhead's boyfriend.
    They did say he was coming back though.
