This is the best character in any cartoon series ever

I just watched the episode where a human and his butler are hunting prime. Optimus left him to the RUSSIANS. Cold as ice man.

Why put your trust in a MacGuffin that doesn't know what the fuck it's doing?

If that was considered at the time, maybe then the series would not have died

Would Magnus have been ANY better than Rodimus?

How do people form an attachment to him

I'm not a little kid and there's not a strong focus on any character in geewun from what I see watching it in the background, so he just seems kind of flat. Just a really striking design because Kawamori

>>78770582
You had to be a kid when you watched it. He's got that "cool dad" thing going on. If you didn't watch it when you were 6 or 7 you probably won't get attached.

Maybe Ultra Magnus would be better but the series would have still died. Same reason but with the creation of Galvatron

There have to be autists who worship him while only having watched geewun as grown men

Nah. Magnus was represented as the moral leader

Well, probably, but when have autists counted for anything? I only like GEEWUN because of nostalgia. It's objectively a heap of hot garbage, but I can't help but love it.

I am an autist who almost literally worships him, but I was in it from the start.

I remember I rented the 1986 movie when I was a kid. Didn't know shit about Transformers except a few scenes from Armada. But even then I could tell that Optimus dying was a pretty big deal.

Only Optimus, Megatron didn't die.

How likely was Megatron to make a full recovery, though?

Discounting Unicron's intervention
>>
>>78774551
Hate would have kept him going, and he didn't croak immediately like Prime, so he would have made it.

At least one of the older drafts killed Megatron, and explained why he was forced to work for him.

Probably. But I say that because season three was all about UM and Cyclonus with Rodimus and Galvatron taking more background roles.

Two things you could always count on in TF: Optimus dying heroically, and Starscream being a dick.

Magnus' entire character in G1 was built around the fact that he didn't think he was ever good enough.
>>
>>
>>
>>78775192
in G1 3 times?
the movie, the quintessons, and
oh, being dropped in a vat of 'acid' on cybertron.
elita-1 saved him.
unless there's another time he died.
i do remember him getting injured and having to send someone to cyberton to get a part.

>>78770582
He's a father figure.

Voice actor tells the story that he based the voice on his older brother after he got back from Vietnam. The brother left a typical young man but when he got back he was much more mature and responsible and commanding. When the VA got the audition and learned that Optimus Prime would be a leader type, and that it was a cartoon for young boys, he channeled what he had thought of his brother.

Because of that, all the little boys with absentee fathers bonded to him and looked up to him as a role model. It's the one common thing that the VA hears every time he talks to his fans.

>>78775192
G1 Cartoon (US): 2 times
G1 Marvel and G2 comics: 3 times
G1 Japan: He dies a third time in Headmasters, and kind of dies in G2, but I don't like to count that one.
Beast Wars: Once
Beast Machines: Once
Unicron Trilogy: Armada, and surprisingly enough, he never dies again
Animated: Once, just to get it out of the way
Prime: Didn't watch, but I heard he also died in it.

Once in the movie, and... ?

When the Quintessons briefly brought him back to life the first time.

You might also count his death as Orion Pax as another death, so it would bump it to 3 in US, and 5 for Japan.

I thought Prime didn't die in Beast Wars, he just got his face fucked up. Or are people confusing the truck with munkey?
