I believe he's referring to the unchanged status quo. The Cons lost a few of their main characters, but the Bots lost one.


That is ridiculous

Uhhhhh, Breakdown is the only semi-main character that's dead. Airachnid is in stasis, hoping to make a return for Beast Hunters, and Starscream might join the 'cons again in S2E24.

but the Bots lost one.


Cliffjumper? You're joking right? He's not a main character. All main Autobots are accounted for.

Also, while we're at it, Tailgate and Seaspray are dead too.

Oh for god's sake, look at the bigger picture !!! The Decepticon management team is shrinking, Autobots not so much.


Tailgate and Seaspray don't count in my argument cause they're "passing by" characters. And since cliffjumper gets mentioned so many times, I assumed he was a main character.

But...we're talking about character deaths, and every death except for Breakdown's was a minor character.

What defines a main character is it's importance and contribution to the overall plot. Cliffjumper is only mentioned when Arcee has her [annoying] revenge arc, and a few rare times after that. We can't really count a character that's been dead since Episode 1 a main character, no matter how many times he appears in flashbacks. If we wanted to consider Cliffjumper a main character because of that, we might as well include Tailgate.

At this rate of the show, the Autobots will still lose less guys than the Decepticons. It's kinda turned into Star Trek Voyager and the magic reset button.

Why DO the writers keep mentioning Cliffjumper anyway ? Is it just for Hasbro to keep selling his toys ?

Craze Base has posted some new stills from tomorrow's new episode of Transformers Prime, "Hard Knocks". Be sure to tune into the Hub tomorrow evening at 7:00 PM ET. Check out the images mirrored below.

This Friday, October 6th at 7:00PM EST, an episode of Transformers Prime will air called “Hard Knocks.” Transformers Prime, in case you don’t know, is the all-CGI animated series that airs on Hub (and is set in continuity with the Transformers: War for Cybertron and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron video games). Prime chronicles what happens when the Autobots and Decepticons travel through the Space Bridge to Earth, and continue their eons-long war here. The heroic Autobots of course seek to protect mankind, while the evil Decepticons do everything they can to take over the planet.

Killing off Bee, you are more likely to see Peter Cullen get a cameo in TF4 ( as a human), or them finding a reason to bring the kids back into the show. #-o

I don't follow. :???:

My theory is that Arcee is jealous that Smokescreen might be replacing Cliffjumper on Team Prime. :-?
Re: Transformers Prime "Hard Knocks" Preview Image and Clip (1427544)
Posted by Sabrblade on October 6th, 2012 @ 12:55pm CDT
I keep thinking that one of these days there's gonna be an episode where Smokescreen gets so sick of Arcee's talking down to him that he just snaps back at her with "What is your problem with me?! I've done everything I can to try and fit in with you guys and you keep treating me like scrap! Why do you hate me so much?"

Also I was talking with someone about the whole deal with Arcee always being so hard on Smokescreen, and it led to us thinking something about it. Maybe this is Arcee's way of toughing him up so he doesn't get himself killed in some reckless hero act like what happened to Cliffjumper. While Arcee didn't know the specific details of Cliff's death, she does know that he got cocky and refused any back up, so maybe Arcee's just trying to avoid another Autobot making a similar mistake. She blames herself for having been unable to save her previous two comrades, and doesn't want to see another get killed. Though, if that's what she is doing, I will say that she's going about it all wrong, but then that might also be part of her own character growth in learning to not be so harsh on the new guy.

I try to keep up with my downloads for this show, but the interest is fading. Im still stumped as to why there is a new Ironhide/Kup mold that has never been introduced in the show and a new Smokescreen character that has not been introduced to the toy line. Are the cartoon artists even on the same planet as the department that designs the toys ?

This isn't the first time we've gotten toys that aren't in the show, and characters in the show that aren't toys. :-|

Soundwave sums up this episodes. He has been consistent in the entire show, whenever Soundwave shows up, bad ass ensues. The look in the end, "no one messes with Laserbeak".
As with some people earlier saying to kick off Arcee. I think she is a very important character and ties the bunch. If anything, I see Hasrbo trying to hook up Arcee with Smokescreen. Like they did Tigetron and Air razor.

I always thought Cliffjumper to be the Tigatron of Transformers Prime, although his somewhat "loner" persona draws him a little closer to Wheeljack. :-?

I think Smokescreen to be more of a Cheetor than a Tigatron, however.
