    We already have the Comic and Novel Prequels. so a prequel movie is not needed.

    also with all main cons dead its better to not continue from DOTM

    continue and bring back megs, screamer and soundwave. i think it was dumb to kill them off like that. almost as dumb as killing darth maul in the first episode. just have some "all powerful" bring them back. please.

    I still don't understand why anybody thinks a prequel would be a feasible/good idea.

    As I mentioned in other thread, prequels could work showing the creation of Sector 7 and the rise of both 'Cons and 'Bots.


    For the first movie:
    - Make a story about the Archibald Witwicky's voyage on the Artic Circle, with good seekers [wanting to keep Megatron frozen] and bad Seekers [wanting to free him] as the Main TFs.
    Heroes:
    - Jetfire.
    - Silverbolt.
    - Air Raid.

    Villains:
    - Skyquake.
    - Thundercracker.
    - Skywarp.

    For the second movie:
    - Now about Sector 7's rise, with the First Seven trying to dig up Megatron as the era of Steam arises, basically a Hearts of Steel movie showing the end of the "wood" age and the beginning of the age of technology [Industrial Revolution. FUCK YEAH].
    Focus the plot on Sector 7 discovering the AllSpark on Planet Earth and on them Megatron's body while others Seekers try to free him.

    For the third movie:
    - Finish off on WWII, with the last conflict between the Seekers [some of them on the Axis' side, others with the Allies' side], Soundwave would act as one of the villains here.
    At the end, Jetfire and Soundwave would send a message to the Autobots and Decepticons [respectively] to bring forth the army, leading to TF2007.

    I used to say I want a continuation on the story we alrady have, but the more I think about it, the more I want a reboot. It would cool to get a different approach to the series.

    Personally the only way I'd prefer a prequel is if it's set in a completely different decade in the past - which might make a fun movie, but I don't know how much of a seller it'd be when the Autobots and Decepticons involved all turn into out-of-date vehicles and devices, let alone with Optimus, Bumblebee, Megatron and Starscream (translation: the brand figureheads) completely out of the action since three of them wouldn't be on Earth yet and one would still be a popsicle.

    After reading "Sector 7", though - and having seen "Captain America" - I do think a TF movie set in the late 1930s prior to WWII (basically around the same time as Welles' "War Of The Worlds" broadcast - yeah, I know "Buckaroo Banzai" nicked it first, but what the hell...) could be fun to play around with.

    I don't think a prequel movie will be a good way to go.

    I don't like prequels. I'd rather have something going off DOTM as a sequel.

    Wow! Maybe I should change my position.

    Lets Hollywoodize and "adapt" the comics into a movie, and then all the fanboys can nerd-rage at all the changes to the story, all in the name of "you can't cater to the fanboys alone; you have to make a movie for the mass audiences".

    Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!

    I prefer a reboot.

    But if they're continuing the current storyline, they'll probably do what they always do:

    start out with some prequel bit set in the past or on cybertron or elsewhere, and have it lead into events in the present day.

    that would be better, than just doing a new prequel story

    Adaptationg all Prequels into a movie and this would prove everyone that the comics are canon LOL
