These are the characters from Transformers: Mission Earth.


Team Prime

  • Optimus Prime (Convoy in Japan)- a 10-year-old Autobot who becomes a leader of his own team he assembled when his girlfriend is kidnapped and his parents killed by the Decepticons. He dreams of being the next Autobot leader (officially) so everyone would stop poking fun at him and respect him. He is fun-loving, hyperactive, and very cheerful but quite weak-minded, mischievous, lazy, and kind of distracted. But at times, he is very brave and protective, able to do positive thinking, and finds planet Earth enjoyable. In his spare time when there is no Decepticon activity, he hangs out with Spike and Bumblebee. He wields the Sentinel Saber, his father's weapon. He also rides the Vectrex Cycle, which transforms into his armor. He is also on the run from the Elite Guard. He gets more mature and braver as the series progresses. Transforms into a sportscar in Seasons 1 and 2, and into a huge flat-nose truck. Voiced by Max Charles.
