The idea I think was out of the old and in with the new. But yeah it was a mistake.

The Autobots that came to earth on the Ark were the ones getting killed, they could have lived and stayed on Earth while the series turned focus to Cybertron and other worlds in season 3 under Rodimus' leadership....

.....Rodimus I actually liked. he was new to leadership and growing into it and had the self doubt one would expect at being the new leader. Also I am sure he was plagued by guilt, it was his actions that enabled Megatron to blast Optimus, then he is revealed as the next Prime....

I think it came from them not being used to the idea that the toys had direct tie ins to cartoons. That was relatively new at the time.

Revamping toy lines every couple of years when the "Story" was only in commercials was easy, because the kids didn't have a strong "group mind" emotional attachment to them.

One of the interviews on the DVD extras has a writer say something like, "I thought I was clearing space on the shelves for the next year's toy line, I didn't realize I was killing an Icon."
