See this why we need hot rod/Rodimus Prime to open the matrix and light our darkest hour fam
No way! Rodimus Prime is one of my all-time favorite characters. I'd hate to see how the live-action movies would butcher him.
Especially after being dragged through the mud in Season 3. On that subject, i don't get how the writers shat the bed with the Season 3 leaders so badly. Rodimus became a "forever in Prime's shadow" character, and Galvatron was turned into a mentally deranged idiot. Say what you will about G1 Starscream's blunders but, i think he would have made a better leader than Season 3 Galvy.
G1 Starscream's idea to build his own combiner team to usurp Megatron > Every plan Galvatron ever had in Season 3.
