Just a quik poll to see what people want.
A big cast with hardly any charecter development! Just like G1.
HOWEVER, keep in mind that it was one character arc/spotlight per episode, and often with the major characters they had their own evolution (Megatron with Optimus and Starscream, mostly) at least every episode. If they're able to replicate that, I think it should be okay.
Poll isn't very well done bro. But interesting topic. I would like to see a lot more character development. The way ratchet was in "darkest hour" was spectacular. If all the characters had that kind of emotion the show would be amazing. Although I'm just disappointed they save their best work for the season finales
In an ideal Transformers series I'd want something like Justice League Unlimited. It had a massive cast so anyone in the DC Universe had a chance to show up. The voice talent and character archetypes meant that you didn't have to have deep character development on every single character that showed up. But you could still have a focus on some characters that allowed them to develop as the show went on.
While Transformers Prime might have a small cast it seems like we haven't had any character development on the Decepticon side unless your name is Starscream. Poor Soundwave seems to be totally forgotten about by the writers for weeks on end in what is already a Decepticon cast that is far too small. Most weeks it's hey look the Autobots are going to scrap another load of Vehicons and Insecticons.
I'd love it done like JLU. That way would work great with TFs.
I want Shockwave to feature lots and obviously there are gonna be more characters as all the beasts will be joining the cast. It's not gonna stay the same size that's for sure.
This, though it wasn't a choice.
Something like Animated. Small main cast but a larger "background" (but still developed) cast to help develop the main characters even further. e.g. if Lockdown was never introduced we wouldn't have known some of Ratchet and Prowl's character traits. But Lockdown is still a slightly developed, fun character on his own.
It's funny because Prime has a small cast yet I still think the character development is subpar. Small doesn't necessarily mean better developed.
Basically what Animated had is what i ideally want in a cartoon.
