    I would like to see Ultra Magnus, the "bots" need a leader right now, since Prime isn't there.

    Seriously we still don't know how the new Autobot is at all?

    And when Optimus comes back to the fold as leader, which he inevitably will? Second banana to an already strong leader? Methinks that would be a bad dynamic and not very smart on the part of Primes writing staff.

    My money is on Jazz. Why?
    1) He's well known to the franchise and fans have a proven like for his character.
    2) He's non-threatening to the long-term leadership structure, but could step in as an interim boss if need be
    3) Based on the writing teams update to hallowed characters already proven, there are many ripe possibilities for fun with this guy
    4) He's somewhat throw away, having died in the movie already. If the writers needed to excise him for whatever reason if his purpose is to be cannon fodder, I think they could do so and residually continue to add emotional resonance to the series.

    I think you're thinking of Nathan Fillon. And no, he wasn't announced as a new cast member, he was merely mentioned as on the wishlist and for some reason people (myself initially, I'll admit) took that to mean he's involved.

    New autobot

    Please let it be worth waiting for like Iornhide, Jazz, Silverbolt or Sideswipe. I don't want to wait like we already have and just end up with springer or hot rod. I could survive if it was warpath or air raid. I have seen concept art for Jazz. He looks cool. Take his movie appearance move down his chest plate, give him a more organic mouth and cliff jumpers weapons and a red tie. I don't know If it metal or it can flap like megatons scarf in DOTM.

    I'm still hoping it's a tank, a construction vehicle, or something that flies. I don't want anymore cars in this show.

    I believe Ironhide was expressly ruled out for quite some time to come.

    It's probably just the sheer desperation to see a new character.
