I think it'd be cool. I'm fairly certain they're going to be in the Jagex game.
I suspect Prowl is actually a very real possibility. In an interview I read of the producers they explained how they chose which ones they picked. Basically they started with Optimus and Bee and set up the team by various personality traits ie a scientist, an experienced and embittered soldier, and a bruiser. They brought in a loose cannon with Wheeljack. One thing they don't have yet is a straight laced stickler for the rules and that is how Prowl is usually portrayed.
So I'm hoping!
Which interview was this?
But my bad it was a "Q & A" with exutive producer Jeff Kline the actual quote---
"“Scribble TheAppaloosa Pony” asks: With such a huge selection of Transformers to choose from, many of them being fan-favorites, how do you go about selecting which characters get the honor of starring in Transformers Prime?
Jeff Kline: We knew we wanted to keep our ensemble relatively small, both for production reasons and so that we would have the ability to really dig into these characters in a way that only television allows. If I remember correctly, we started with three of the "must-haves" (Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron), and then tried to surround them with ‘Bots and ‘Cons that complemented rather than duplicated their personalities, attributes and histories. We knew we could never please everyone; each fan has his/her favorites, and the Transformers universe is huge. So we all came at it from the perspective of, "Who will allow us to spin the most story?" vs. "Who has the highest ‘Q’ Score?" "

Sorry I didn't post it with the original post. I read it months ago and it took some digging to find.
