Oh... oh crap. I may have inadvertently caused his death. I was reading Zeta Prime's article over at TFWiki, and when I read his IDW section earlier today, I thought to myself, "Man, despite some positives, he was probably one of the jerkiest Autobot leaders ever, he deserved what he got." Then after reading, came back to check for any new topics, and... well, you get the idea.

He will be missed by the fandom. :-(

Interesting thing dead end and the Gobot Dr. Go, whom Clarke voiced were both the same model Porsche. RIP

Just Zeta. Sentinel was a different guy in the cartoon.

It was a retcon. He used to be one of the nameless pre-autobot type gladiators when Rodimus visits the matrix.

Yeah, the script just referred to him as "New Narrator" at the time.

The name "Zeta Prime" was retroactively given to him in recent years.
