Which is really going to suck. Smokescreen has door-wings. Knock Out, the toy Smokescreen's getting retooled off of, has wheel-wings. :-(

I hope they engineer the transformation a little bit differently to accommodate that, or give us a new mold in the U.S.

Actually if you look closely at the new bots back when Prime yells "Fall back" you can see the door wings and wheel wings.

But ya needs a retool like what happened with rts tracks and gens wheeljack, except so the doors go on the back and not the arms.

Prowl? Smokescreen? Jazz? Whoever it is, I hope he doesn't die so quickly! :PRAY:

I'm leaning in the direction of it being Sideswipe via Michael Bay's silver version, especially with those blue highlights. If not, then my second choice would be Prowl.

Posted by Archanubis on September 2nd, 2012 @ 9:15am CDT
Hard to tell. The earlier promo images with the #38 vaguely visible - suggests Smokescreen. The colors of the character - blue and white/silver - suggests either Jazz or Mirage. The wing doors - could be anyone.

Jazz? If it is than I love whoever added him!
Re: Transformers Prime "New Recruit" Promo Clip (1416334)
Posted by Roaddbuster on September 3rd, 2012 @ 3:37am CDT
I think it's definetly jazz. One give away is his stylish moves, and second is his blue and white color like his g1 version. I may be wrong but that's just my guess.
Re: Transformers Prime "New Recruit" Promo Clip (1416770)
Posted by nikkinavarro on September 4th, 2012 @ 12:53pm CDT
:-? Based on the car form its looks alot like Smokescreen considering the #38. But on the moves its looks a bit like Jazz. We'll just have to wait and see for this one. They just better not get killed right away.

Maybe this image will help people figure it out?
I'm leaning more towards Prowl myself.

Looks like Prowl. Maybe the autobot was a protoform? It is solid grey like one.

Kewl art skillz. :APPLAUSE:

Now, I think it's either Jazz of Sideswipe, they both contain grey and most characters use their movie design.

Well, I didn't draw that. That's Hasbro's official art for Prowl from the Aligned-based upcoming MMO game "Transformers: Universe." Basically, Prime Prowl.

I know, that trailer looks interesting, I may try that game out.

What's keeping me from thinking thinking it's Prowl is that it's a rally car instead of a police vehicle, which has come to be the standard altmode for Prowl these days. Not to mention that Aligned Prowl is a Cybertronian police officer and militia, so unless this is meant to be an "unmarked" police car, the Smokescreen thing is what i'm leaning towards, especially with that 38 he's wearing. ;)

IGN has posted an exclusive preview clip from this weeks new episode of Transformers Prime "New Recruit". As many of you have speculated, based on the number 38 on the side of his vehicle mode, the new Autobot is indeed Smokescreen. Check him out in the video embedded below. Be sure to tune into the Hub this Friday at 7:30 PM ET.

Transformers Prime Clip - Smokescreen in Action

There's a new Transformer in town, in this scene from the new episode airing September 7th.

Ol' Snokey is back, plucked from the ashes of his last showing in Armada. Finally seeing a new Autobot after all those Cons is refreshing. Should be an interesting change so long as he doesn't go the way of Skyquake or Makeshift.

This I got to see :-?

Smokescreen is one of the most awesome characters in prime that I have seen so far!



This is going to be great :D

I like him already! Face looks a little thin and narrow ... but I love the personality we see, and overall he looks great!

Well, from the clip is seems like we have our answer as to why Jack is teaming with him.

Its not to split up Jack and Arcee.

Its because teaming him up with Miko would be a freaking Suicide Squad.

I'm just not very impressed with this show anymore. Why did he make a metal on metal screeching noise when he slide through the dirt? They need to shore up the animation. Everything seems clunky. How do none of the Autobots know this bot, but he happened to just find them on Earth on his own and by himself?

He just jumps over Bee and Arcee, with a really bad camera motion to boot, to the frontline of the skirmish, picks off one or two 'cons, and dances around avoiding very few incoming shots. *sigh* Maybe season 3 will be good.

Glad that I sided with the images that Sabrblade and others gave out! :lol:

Now I am wondering how he will fare out for me in the series, and if he will be added to my "Collection of Fame" as well! 8)

Haha! Yes! I knew it!

And to all that had ever doubted the power of Smokescreen:

Image

HAHAHAHAH! Now give us a toy. And don't make it a repaint of Knock Out like Japan or I'll rip your faces off. :-x

Edit: Now that I look at him again, he does resemble Knock Out rather closely (aside from a completely different head mold and the wings, which are on the other side of his wheels :D), more the toy than the animation model. :roll: As long as they don't completely screw it up, I'm fine with a retool.

Posted by dedcat on September 5th, 2012 @ 3:04pm CDT
Oh look... a Knockout repaint with a starscream head and a 1 dimensional personality. Because what the series really needed was a character to jump around shooting lasers yelling 'WOOO!'

Now that I got that out of my system, I hope he ends up being a great new character.
Re: Transformers Prime "New Recruit" Promo Clip (1417271)
Posted by Vectorshot on September 5th, 2012 @ 4:44pm CDT
I don"t know.... he looks a little too much like Starscream for me. I will hold my comments for the end of season 2.

Oh ya!! I'm so glad smokescreen is in prime. He hasn't been in the shows since the unicron trilogy. I love his personality too.

So this is why Takara made a toy for him. I hope he get's released in America as well.

Because it's rock, not dirt. Basically a rock shelf.
a Cobra Viper wrote:They need to shore up the animation. Everything seems clunky.

If you say so. I'm inclined to disagree. If it seems choppy, it's because there's a lot of going on and a lot of jump cuts from one bit of action to the next.

Did you somehow miss the "All Autobots, come to Earth and join my band of merry misfits!" message they intentionally reminded us of in "Out of the Past" already?

I can easily see a repaint and new head mold for Prowl. Hell, his head now looks like Prowl as is.

To be honest, Jackie still hasn't really wowed me yet as much as I'd hoped he would have by now. In all episodes he starred in, another character outperformed him, IMO:
  • "Con Job" - Makeshift was a cooler Jackie than the real Jackie. :|
  • "Loose Cannons" - Dreadwing made that episode. 8)
  • "Triage" - Ratchet. 'Nuff said. :APPLAUSE:
  • "Hurt" - Miko's thirst for revenge only to learn how hollow it was in the end was more impactful to me.
I still have hopes that Wheeljack himself will shine on in later episodes, but for now, it felt more to me like he played second-fiddle to these guys.

No, not Ratchet, he NEEDS things! Like a body! :lol: Arcee, I like, but I could also live without. Though I feel the dynamic would suffer without her, since she's the usually-level-headed-subordinate...when she's not pissed off and run-and-gunning.

I just love Wheeljack's character, not any "battle action" that he does (which he's done plenty of ass-kicking. He just hasn't killed anyone important yet :roll: :-( ). If Smokescreen ends up being as annoying as Miko used to be, Wheeljack stays #1 (but top Ratchet as #2. You can't pass up that badass look Smokie's got).

But we never know, Wheeljack could be the next member of the Autobots to die. He's gotten pretty beat up by Dreadwing, Soundwave, and Hardshell. Don't know if he has much left in him. :-(

New Autobots should stop making an impression by shooting explosive fuel-- it might be bad for PR! :D
