I honestly don't know how to feel about Prime Optimus. I mean, WFC/FOC/Prime Optimus are supposed to be the same guy, but that doesn't add up. WFC/FOC prime got stuff done. Prime Optimus always seemed like a pushover to me... It's not that I don't like him, he just always seemed like he was unfit for his position, but it could be that he's more reserved than the others. But Bayverse prime just seems like they didn't know how to characterize him. He seems to be vastly differant in each movie.
There are too many contradictions for TFP and WFC/FOC to be in the same universe, especially with Dark Energon. It's actually hard to find a fan who believes the stuff Hasbro is putting out about it being one continuity. It's two different continuities to most people, and that's one of the few bandwagons I actually think is worth jumping on.
I do agree that TFP Optimus rarely seemed to get things done, though when he was doing it, he was really doing it.
Bayverse Prime always maintained the same core personality. It's just that his outward behavior changed under different circumstances. He was still a consistent character, and not only that, in the fourth movie, one could really empathize with him.
The movie Constructicons all had two or three of themselves, so they're probably just a type of random grunt that's above protoforms.
Optimus was never once like an angsty teenager. Give the guy some respect, he's saved the planet...four times now? Even one time doing that warrants respect. But many still treated him like scrap for no reason other than he's an alien and they don't trust him because of that. Basically, racism. And yet he still stuck around. An angsty teenager would just turn on the humans guns blazing, or commit suicide, or something. And the fact that you can't see that speaks much more about your maturity than his.
alright well you're insulting me for disagreeing with your opinion of a movie character so i'm revoking your privilege to comment on maturity
he's saved the world yeah but during the times when he hasn't saved the world, he doesn't behave with consideration or nobilty like previous incarnations. he threatens people, he brutalizes enemies (he tore a heads guy apart with hooks) and he lies and withholds information as benefits him.
An angsty teenager would just turn on the humans guns blazing, or commit suicide.
this... this is rich.
an angsty teenager wouldn't go guns blazing, he'd just threaten to do it and think about it a lot. a psychopath would do it. and an angsty teenager wouldn't commit suicide, a depressed person would. this is exactly why 'angsty teenager' suits him. he bullies people smaller than him (mostly humans) and puts on bravado but isn't above begging when all else fails. he begged for his life against sentinel, he begged sam for his help when he couldn't think of anything else to do.
he's a sick fighter and all but he isn't mature, or wise, and he's overly violent.
My statement, though rather offensive, was relevant and well-founded. What you said would be valid if I were to say something like "No, you're wrong and you suck." The root of my statement was directly tied to the nature of yours, and they go hand in hand.
That was a rather brutal death, but he didn't do it for the sake of making it painful or anything. He saw an opportunity to kill the Decepticon, and took it. That is exactly what I would expect of Optimus Prime. If he were to intentionally make the death torturous when he could make it painless, which he has never done even once, then there would be a problem with it. Also, he has never lied to his allies or withheld information that was relevant. I've watched each movie more than once, I know what goes on in them. Actually, that's something he got angry at the government for doing.
Unless you mean he should have mentioned the Seed back during TF1 or something. That would be absurd, though. Completely irrelevant.
Overall, it actually seems that you don't know what you're talking about and are actually citing incorrect "facts" or taking things out of context.
