Can't believe I missed this thread. Personally I quite like Prime yes there are some things to be desired. However I much prefer Prime to Animated. ( sorry animated fans)
I would like to see focus on other characters instead of Arcee/Jack and Bulk/Miko. I need reasons to like Ratchet even more. For Prime himself I would like to see him lighten up. I realize they are in a war and he's experienced quite a bit of casualties. However would it be so much to ask him to smile like DOTM Prime did. Also wanted Wheeljack to stay but maybe later on the series.
The kids I'm kind of mixed about. Jack and Raf are.....ok, personally they don't bother me but Miko annoys me to no end. Honestly to me she's a lot more trouble than she's worth.
The cons I just love. I never thought I would actually LIKE a Starscream but Prime's Starscream is win for me, high heels and all. Megatron demeanor and personality are epic. Soundwave just icing on the cake. Wasn't too sure how I would take to him being silent, but it actually works quite well for him. Busting out on Starscream is pure gold, communications officer indeed. Skyquake was awesome, but yea I don't know why he was killed off so early either....shame. Arachnid I'm sort of indifferent about at the moment I'll see what more she does as the series progress. Breakdown and Knockout are to me very nice additions.
Story wise its a hit and miss, I would like to see more focus on the cons and bots rather than the children screwing things up. The season is still "young" so as maturity prevails, hopefully good changes are not far behind.
