Was there something behind the story of Megatron’s friend falling to the humans?
Yoshioka: Nothing in particular. Just an ally who’d been killed.
So, pretty much a “hi then die” character, as we often saw in the comics.
Yoshioka: Yeah, that’s about it. Even if we had made one of the preexisting Decepticons die there, I doubt anyone would have felt too sad about it…
Really? I feel like that could have been very sad. Imagine if Ravage had died, or something.
Yoshioka: To me, that’s just the sort of characters the Decepticons are. They’re a band of thugs and scoundrels. (Laughter) In that sense, they’re the more human of the factions.
In comparison, Optimus Prime is almost too perfect. He’s kind of superior to humans.
Yoshioka: I didn’t really feel that way about him, personally. I view Optimus as a philanthropist. But people have different images of the character, and end up holding different opinions on him. When I’m drawing for fun, I never draw Optimus. It was the same way when I was doing the art for “Beast Wars” in TV Magazine. On my own, I’d only be drawing Dinobot. (Laughter)
Was there a reason you took a liking to Dinobot?
Yoshioka: He’s easy to draw. (Laughter) Easy to depict in poses and action scenes.
