It's called specific character interaction. They brought in just Optimus becuase A) He was all that was needed for this mission, and B) So he and Wheeljack could have some spark-to-spark moments of getting to know and understand each other better. Bringing in more Autobots would have diminished the personal interation between Optimus and Wheeljack.

Plus, they all wouldn't have fit inside the Jackhammer together. ;)

Dreadwing wanted to have the chance of personally eliminating Optimus to prove himself to Megatron, and so Megatron agreed to let him, this time. But Dreadwing had also disobeyed Megatron's orders, and since Megatron was already doing fine without him, Megatron simply didn't care whether or not Dreadwing survived.

Chaoslock wrote:In BW, there were lots of fights where both sides took all of their soldiers on the battlefield at once, but Prime lacks such battle royales.
BW could do such grand scale fights since their war was no kept secret to the planet's populace. In this series, the Autobots try to keep the fights contained and as small scale as possible. The last thing they want is to draw attention to themselves and so must keep all the battles as minute as best they can.
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.
