Here's something I was thinking about. G1 was a Mega-franchise, encompassing 8 different series (though one had only one episode, one was manga, and the last was just story pages). Does anyone else think it's possible for TFA to be the next mega-franchise? I have to admit I love the way they've re-created the transformers world, and the potential for story-telling within it. The ability to mix up different Transformers from different series helps as well.
