Its Cast of Character’s, both Autobots and Decepticons is Immense and has a place in every kid’s heart, so narrowing it down to a list of the Coolest Autobots was a bit Difficult but we still managed so here’s a look at what we feel, are the Coolest Autobots ever as part of a Two part Feature where we shall look at the Top Ten Coolest Decepticon Transformers Ever at a later date.
Bumble bee is one of the smaller Transformers and is thought of as a smaller brother in the ranks of the autobots, his vehicle mode is that of a Volkswagen beetle. While he may be small in stature, he more than makes up for it as a spy using his small form to reach places his larger sized comrades cannot plus his special fondness for the Transformers leading Human element Spike is what makes him ultimately endearing.
Often referred to as Optimus Prime’s right hand man, his special operation’s skill is often used to infiltrate the decepticons and leave them baffled at their wake, considered a music loving autobot who is vastly popular among his brothers in the Ark in most part due to his ability to speak in Slang. His Vehicle mode is that of a hardtop Pontiac Solstice GXP which makes him one of the coolest Transformers there are.
Blaster is another Transformer who’s Fondness for Earth Music as his Alternate mode suggests is that of a Stereo Cassette Player. He’s an Energetic and fun loving Transformer who shares his love for music with the people of earth and is always involved in a bitter rivalry with his Decepticon Counterpart Soundwave. Blaster much like Soundwave also has the ability to eject cassettes which in turn Transform into smaller Autobots.
One of the if not the Biggest Transformer ever Created. Metroplex transforms into Autobot City, an aptly titled city for the autobots to inhabit which also functions as a huge battle station. Metroplex is even bigger in stature to other large Transformers as one of the combiner teams, Omega supreme or Fortress Maximus. In other Words, The Autobots Ultimate Weapon.
Prowl is the Autobots resident Police Officer who Transforms into a ,you guessed it, Police patrol car. Prowl is also a Military Strategist and is often described by his fellow Autobots as a bit of a Prick and doesn’t get along well with his Autobot Brothers. His Anxious personality and Strictness to follow Military Protocol does not earn him many friends but he still made it onto our list because he sure does look cool right?.
Ironhide is a Long standing soldier in Optimus Prime’s army and is very loyal to said leader, He happens to be one of the Toughest Autobots and one of the Coolest at the same time. Iron hide’s vehicle form takes on a modified GMC truck which also has a water gun where he can shoot any type of Liquid. A no nonsense Transformer, Iron hide may be Gruff but his loyalty to his Leader Optimus Prime is to be commended.
Grimlock is One of the Strongest Autobots who happens to have his own sub-team, the Dino-bots ,although not the brightest, he does make up for it in sheer brute force.His Alternate mode is that of a T-REX and is not particularly fond of the Earthlings and does not care if there are any casualties in his Power mongering ways. Arguably one of the most popular Transformers ever and has earned even the respect of their Leader Optimus Prime. Also one of the coolest, a Sure worthy addition into this list.

His Vehicle mode is that of freight-liner truck car carrier and is surely a welcome addition to the cool club.
2. HOT ROD/RODIMUS PRIME
