Are you kidding me?
It's Transformers. Recurring characters like Pick-A-Series-Optimus Prime, Movie Bumblebee, Animated Bulkhead, G1 Wheeljack, Pick-A-Series Megatron, Ditto-Starscream, G1-Ratchet, G1-colored Breakdown. Change some voicing and/or personality traits, couple of slight variations in looks, still as viable as any of the new mentions coming. Arcee's a motorcycle, something that's been happening since, what, Energon? Only Animated broke that cycle, lol, only to have Prime rev it up again. And, oh look, there's little human characters. Guess that's never happened in a TF series? And, unless I'm mistaken, which I'm not, Unicron's been mentioned since the very. first. episode. Matter of time right there, matter of time. To equate mere mentions of names and labels like Dinobots, Unicron and Combiners to the show suddenly being unoriginal is a little over half a year too late.
That said, for rehashing old names, looks, and elements they've done fairly well enough to make TF:Prime its own. I see no intelligent reason not to assume that will continue with the new content & characters.
