A magnificent picture of Rob Key

Chris asks: "What does Mark Ramprakash get for another 2,000 run season?"

"Robimus Prime, of course."

The irony is that the only person worthy of receiving such a magnificent Transformer is of course Rob Key.

Some of you might be underwhelmed by the name 'Robimus Prime' believing it to be a half-arsed reworking of 'Optimus Prime'. You're wrong.

When Optimus Prime died after an epic battle with Megatron, Hot Rod rose to become leader of the Autobots and in so doing transformed into 'Rodimus Prime'.

So you see, 'Robimus Prime' is actually perfectly true to the Transformer naming system. It's not our fault that the naming system's really stupid.

Robimus Prime would be a magnificent leader. He'd never set a 7-2 field and instruct a fellow Autobot to bowl wide of a Decepticon's off stump.

According to Wikipedia:

"Although Rodimus speaks with the savvy voice of a seasoned veteran, in truth, at his heart, he is still Hot Rod, and bears the burden of leadership heavily, constantly second-guessing himself and feeling that he can never live up to the legacy of Optimus Prime. He can, on occasion, be hot-headed, tending to act first and ask questions later, but he has dedicated himself to the preservation of life in its myriad forms."

It's tough being Kent Captain.

LOVE the picture. And the wikipedia entry made me cry with laughter: "Despite the brave public face he wore at these events, his own doubts continued to plague him, and he was particularly fazed by Galvatron’s threat of an “ultimate weapon”.

You wouldn't be laughing so heartily if YOU were confronted with Galvatron's ultimate weapon, Miriam.
