What we do know
about Sentinel Prime is that he is the most arrogant, pompous, condescending Autobots ever to be portrayed in Transformers
mythos. A, "constant pain in the skid plate" to Optimus Prime and his crew, he seeks only his own
self-advancement through the Elite Guard ranks. Although he publicly touts the virtues of following the rules,
there is no length he wouldn't go to, to make himself look good and other Autobots look bad to senior ranking Autobots.
Character description from package "tech spec": Graduate of the same class as Optimus Prime at the Autobot Academy, Sentinel Prime is a commander of a squad of the best Auto bots have to offer -the Elite Guard. though he is a powerful warrior and cunning leader, he is also obsessed with following rules to the absolute letter. He is unbending in his interpretation of procedure and dislikes the way Optimus Prime and his crew improvise. If he had his way, the whole group would be sent back to Basic Programming.

Other appearances: Although he has made no other appearances in toy form in Transformers, his namesake has been mentioned on several occasions. According to the G1 Marvel comics series, Sentinel Prime was the immediate predecessor to Optimus Prime. The Autobot Matrix of Leadership, was passed directly from Sentinel Prime to Optimus Prime early in the first great War of Cybertron. This story was corroborated in the Dreamwave comics series, The War Within. Therein, Sentinel Prime was assassinated by Megatron near the onset of the great war. This is the first toy made of this character, and is presumably a different individual with the same name.
of significant appearances: Sentinel Prime is one of only two members of the Autobot Elite Guard to make a cameo
appearance in the Transformers Animated movie into
Transform and Roll Out.
(The other was Autobot Supreme Commander, Ultra Magnus.)
His character was also heavily featured in each of the following episodes:
