I really liked the Animated approach to the character. Just another soldier in an army. Same token, what about a team of say, five Primes? But not like the "original 13" Primes, the mythic, god-like beings. More like take the Prime team set-up and make everybody Optimus variations. Sorta like Animated Starscream's clone army but not all the same design. Five different ones of varying sizes and powers, with a female. They wouldn't be Primes in the traditional sense, the leaders or main characters, but more like a special missions strike force that makes appearances occassionally. And in case something like this has been done I haven't read any of the comics past issue 23 of the original run.
