Pretty much, and mainly in reference to the TFU profiles, rather than the cursory characterisations of the crappy kids' show.
http://tfarchive.com/comics/misc/universe/ (from the Series 2 profiles).

EDIT: And Springer was a paranoid lunatic, Kup was a drop-out, and Wreck-Gar spoke largely in quotes of old TV shows...

ok- Wreckgar's talking in TV is not CRIPPLING.


Where does it say Springer is paranoid? I have never seen this. and Kupp being a drop-out? What does he drop-out of? Again, never seen/heard of this for either soldier...

Except when needing to convey something not covered by TV. Or speaking to a Autobot who's never been to Earth...

Paranoid? Isn't that a bit stretching? Sure, he lacked self confidence as a leader first but he got soon better.

Or are you talking about the Survivors storyline? If so, you might have a point and I must confess your superior knowledge.

...of course, now nothing stops you from saying you meant the Survivors even if you didn't. Bugger.

Well, I did, so ner. The editor said he was paranoid! Editors are, like, Professors of Canonicity!

C'mon, he's seriously head-****ed after Time Wars.

Besides which, I always thought "post" meant "after", and this was part of the language rather than one of my quirks. I'm guessing post-war disarmament started in 1942 or something...

Well, if you discount the fact that he was sure the Autobots had just dumped them and were ashamed of them and were gonna arrest them as traitors as soon as they walk in, I think Springer was pretty normal.

On a side note, it was pretty amusing that Broadside was hesitant to go rescue Carnivac because they were up against the Mayhem Squad, the best the Decepticons have. Guess he forgot what team he used to be a part of.

On top of that, it's, like, the sequel version to the bunch of cannon fodder from Time Wars. How can you be scared of anything remotely related to that bunch of toasters?

In the Movie Kup's inability to shut up lets the Decepticons sneak up on them unawares.

Ultra Magnus has problems as well, but he'll deal with those latter...

Then you may have to contend with not knowing what people are talking about, lol.

I never know what people are talking about. It's my own Darwinism.

Unicron deserves a mention: "Alright theDecepticonformalyknownasMegatron. You're pissed with me, but what I want you to do is find the Matrix and bring it here. It's the only thing that can harm me. And no sneaky trying to kill me with it".

It's definitely worth getting your hands on the uk version possibly through the Titan Trades

I am starting to suspect that Windcharger might end up being one of the only Autobots to survive.
