    While the chances of the sequel being set in a futuristic robot-filled Detroit may be quite slim, I'd still like to see the latest TF fiction represented somehow in the next live-action movie.

    It'd be cool to see Sumdac and Sari show up in some manner.

    If we're going to see more of the TF's personalities, I'd like it if Bumblebee and Ratchet strongly resembled their Animated counterparts.

    A movie Bulkhead would be awesome.

    So anybody want to see anything from Animated brought into the movie-verse?

    Or even vice versa: Anything from the movie you'd like to see in TF:A???

    Or a movie-style animated Prowl (Fanartists who don't draw like a blind, drunk monkey, get on this right away!)

    I'd like to see Barricade and Frenzy show up in animated.

    Most likely not, but, I think a Movie styled Bulkhead would be awesome. If anything, Animated will influence some of the character choices. Not in the way it's affecting Universe, but possibly making the people working on the movies concider characters that they wouldn't have normally concidered.

    If it means the Robots will talk more with eachother (including the bad guys) then I hope so.

    Maybe not influence the plot etc. but there's a big chance IMO of Bay using Animated characters because it's going to be the main line at the moment and using characters from the current line would probably make the youngs go WOW IT'S THAT THREE-FACED GUY FROM THAT CARTOON!

    Animated Barricade is a GREAT idea!

    I wouldn't mind seeing a cartoon Bonecrusher show up either.

    As for a really unique fan-art project, I'd love to see someone swap the casts and styles of the movie and TF:A.

    I'd do it myself, but I can't draw! :wink:

    Not really. Maybe a few characters here and there, but that's about it. I don't want either property thinking they have to include one character because it appears in the other. There's already enough cross-brand appeal with the current roster of shared characters, even if the personalities are different.

    It is an interesting thought to have the story fast forward a century before any new robots show up. Communication take a long time in space or something. Though that wouldn't explain what Starscream was doing the whole time.

    Btw I would love to see Prowl look and act just like animated.

    I mean, there are already a couple aspects of the movie in Animated:
    Allspark as MacGuffin.
    Technology reverse-engineered from Megatron.

    Sure, they're not biggies, but they're still there.

    Plus, at some point in the live-action movies, the TFs are going to need some semblance of personalities. I mean, there's only so many G1 Prime quotes to recycle. Might as well draw inspiration from TF:A where characterization has been developed so well so far.

    I seriously doubt Bay is even going to pay attention to TF:A, since it doesn't really go with his 'vision'.

    PT,there is also RID,Armada,Energon,and Cybertron that all have Optimus Primes.

    TFA isn't the only series to have Optimus Prime in.So the chances of them pulling lines for TFA is slim to none.Though I could see them pulling some stuff from RID,Arm,Eng,and Cyb.

    But a BIG NO from me for the main question.
