# Primes

And I'm not talking numbers.

## Optimus Prime

The original and best. While I don't think the new movies are too bad, when I think of Optimus Prime, I think of the original cartoon series :)

I was just thinking that the voice of Prime in the new movies was a very, very good approximation of the voice used in the cartoon series and a quick search tells me that they are actually the same guy! Well I never.

## Optimist Prime

A few years back, while I was on tour with my old band, there was one morning around the middle of the tour where we'd hit a few snags and it seemed like things might fall apart. We were travelling with another band and between us, we seemed to have split in to two camps: those who were depressed, angry, and convinced that all was doomed to failure; and those who were aware that we were already having the best time of our lives and any snag was just that: a minor inconvenience.

I was in the latter camp and between those merry few of us, we decided that what we needed was an **Optimist Prime** to help us defeat the evil forces of **Negatron** and his **Depressedicons**.

## Optometrist Prime

For some reason, this popped into my head this morning and I decided to compile a list of Primes. Mostly so I could share the wonder of the above Optimist Prime :)

I suppose Optometrist Prime would just look after the other Primes' optical sensors.

## Optional Prime

Not required

## Opportunist Prime

This Prime would've just taken Megatron down while he was incapacitated rather than agreeing to that stupid duel.

## Apologist Prime

Ok, I think I'm beginning to run out of Primes.
