    With the recent success of anti-hero villains Suicide Squad in the box office, could this be a good idea in the Transformers movie universe? A movie with the Cons as the anti-heroes?

    who would be the higher authority that forces them to be the squad, and who would they be fighting against?

    It would be great if a squadron of Wreckers got sent by the Autobots to some wartorn battlefield of a planet to capture/kill the baddest of the bad Decepticons down there and the planet's locals come after BOTH factions and the Wreckers and the Decepticons need to team-up to escape alive, for instance.

    Come to think of it, that shithole warzone of a planet might as well be Earth.

    It could only work out IMO as a "Dirty Dozen" film focused on the Decepticons, where they send a squad to complete a mission and most of them get killed off during it.

    I could at least see them doing a spin-off from the point of view of a Decepticon or group of Decepticons.

    It's a concept that's very interesting! Maybe though, a focus on a certain group carrying out a mission is cool.

    Like, 4/5 Cons trying to find the Allspark because in the comic, IIRC Optimus kept moving it. Someone can milk a 2 hour movie outta that?

    Not a bad idea for a spin off, especially if we're talking prequel. Have starscream in it as the head and when shit really hits the fan he just bails or betrays everyone.

    You got it backwards. Suicide Squad and the Wreckers are both based on the Dirty dozen. A decepticon version would be more like "the last chancers" of the 13th penal legion (also based on the Dirty dozen).

    I'd like to see a movie about a Scavenger-like group of Decepticons.

    That's pretty close to the idea I had in this thread http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-movie-discussion/1050266-can-you-imagine-story-within-movieverse-where-autobots-bad-guys.html

    Argh, no thanks. If we had something akin to Guardians of the Galaxy maybe, but I'd rather stay far away from the Suicide Squad formula after that disaster.

    I think a movie with the Wreckers sent on a suicide mission to assassinate Megaton before he goes searching for the Allspark on Earth with the only surviving remembers being Leadfoot, Roadbuster and Topspin.

    I think I posted some sort of idea way back when about Decepticon remnants in some wartorn area having to decide how to move forward, yeah, I think there's some life in the concept, but to be fair, the Decepticons haven't really had a fair shake in terms of characterization up until now, so I don't hold out much hope.

    It wouldn't work for cons, but Wreckers would work wonderfully

    We have the Wreckers for that. Except being criminals. Yet if you did do it con wise....Prowl would keep them in check.

    Its do-able but, it would take a crap ton of time
