    Setting Earth:
    Style: Classics
    Animation type: Hand drawn (or not CGI, whatever it is called now :p )
    Set up: Transformers come from Cybertron looking for energy in an effort to either revive Cybertron from stasis or power their war machines.

    Season 1 would feature a very small cast with just a few Transformers on either side. Each side would probably have a couple of human allies.

    Autobots:
    Optimus Prime
    Bumblebee
    Ironhide
    Wheeljack
    Ratchet

    Decepticons:
    Megatron
    Starscream
    Soundwave + Ravage, Lazerbeak and Rumble
    Lugnut

    Season 1 Finale: The Decepticons send a message into deep space, an activation code for their armada which has just enough energon to reach Earth before needing re-energising, so Season 2 is about preparing for their arrival. The US government becomes aware of the Cybertronians and starts to funnel covert aid to the Autobots, but does not make their presence public.

    Season 2 would see a few more troops arrive for each side now that the core characters have been established. The Autobots would get Hurricane (the defensive warfare specialist from G2, who will play an important role in preparing the Autobots for the arrival of the Armada), Arcee (similar to her Prime incarnation in character and escorting Hurricane the VIP) as well as the Sparkler bots - Sizzle, Fizzle and Guzzle, three tough Autobots veterans. The Decepticons would get Scourge (RID style) leading the 5 Combaticons, which of course would join into Bruticus. Season 2 finale would be the Decepticon Flagship Nemesis arriving in orbit around the Earth under the command of Shockwave, who announces to the world that it is logical that all life should surrender to him at once. Megatron is stunned by Shockwave's betrayal, and when he sends Starscream to confront Shockwave about this, Shockwave effortlessly kills Starscream.

    Season 3 would see the Autobots and the Decepticons teaming up to defeat Shockwave, who unleashes his army upon the Earth. Shockwave's forces include all of the Decepticon combiners we know and love (Devastator, Menasor, Abominus, Monstructor, Piranacon) as well as the Seekers and other generics. Shockwave's second in command would be Scorponok. The war would go pretty badly for our heroes until Megatron suggests that they board the Nemesis and free Sixshot, a nominally loyal warrior who is being held prisoner by Shockwave.

    That's all I got so far :lol

    Transformers: The Lone Crusade

    Premise: The Tyrest Accord granted the Decepticons amnesty in exchange for exile, but anyone with common sense knows that they are only preparing for round two. Optimus, having failed to stop the passing of the Tyrest Accord, sets out alone to fight them. Up against the monstrous Decepticons and the Accord Enforcers, Optimus has no one to rely on but himself, the prototype A.I. Teletran-1, and a few human allies.

    The Autobot & Allies:

    Optimus Prime: Kevin Conroy
    Motto: “Never again.”
    Alternate Form: Longnose semi cab, black and red (the blue comes out in his robot mod e head and hands)
    Inspiration: Inspired by RotF/DotM Optimus in terms of combat style and the amount of crap he's been through, with BWNeo Big Convoy's reputation as a one-man army.
    Bio: At his core, he's the kind of man who would do what's right even if the whole universe stood against him, which explains what he’s doing fighting alone. Unlike other Optimuses, it’s personal for him; every person the Decepticons hurt deeply grieves him, fueling his rage towards the perpetrators.

    Teletran-1: Tara Strong
    Bio: The prototype A.I. for the next generation of military starships, Teletran only came online when Optimus stole the cruiser that she was programmed into. At first, Teletran is pure machine, no emotions, but as she remains active, she begins to develop a personality, a preferred gender, and a desire to experience life. Optimus talks to her at first to have something to talk to in his lonely quest, but later on, he comes to view her as a surrogate daughter.

    Karen Reynolds: Morena Baccarin
    Inspiration: June Darby, Marissa Faireborn, Annie Hughes of “The Iron Giant”
    Bio: A field agent for the U.S.-based Extraterrestrial Activities Division, Helen is absolutely dedicated to her job: protecting humanity from potential invaders. She’s very tough, utterly devoted to her son, and a woman of iron-clad principles. Her husband, John Reynolds, died in combat, hurting her badly and causing her to throw herself into her work and ensuring her 14-year-old son’s well-being. She met Optimus when the latter rescued her from a Decepticon interrogation room; shortly thereafter, she introduced Optimus to the EAD staff, and the big guy became their combat ops agent against the Decepticons.

    Daniel “Danny” Reynolds: Tara Strong
    Inspiration: Hogarth Hughes of “The Iron Giant”, Jean of “Transformers: Victory”
    Bio: Danny’s basically Hogarth as part of the Transformers universe, except that he knew his deceased father, John Reynolds, and he misses him. Danny’s a cheerful, funny kid, for the most part, and he’s wise beyond his years (an infinitely valuable trait in kid characters). His mom is often busy with her EAD work, meaning that the two don’t spend as much time together as either of them would like. Danny lives on the EAD base, meaning that he knows things that no kid should know about alien life; he even met Optimus through Karen, which completely blows him away.

    Accords Enforcers:

    Sentinel: Troy Baker
    Motto: “Sometimes, necessary sacrifices must be made to ensure peace.”
    Alternate Form: Airport fire truck, like in DotM
    Inspiration: DotM Sentinel’s age and lack of principles, but the loyalty of TFA Sentinel
    Bio: The Enforcer General and one of the only men entrusted with a set of Apex Armor, Sentinel believes that the Tyrest Accord, if followed, will secure peace in our time, and he will do whatever is necessary to maintain it, even if he has to sacrifice his morals and allow innocent alien species to be sold into slavery. It may trouble him, but as far as he’s concerned, his motto still stands. Where he and Optimus differ is in who does the sacrificing and who is sacrificed.

    Prowl: Jeff Bennett
    Motto: “The thinking mind is the greatest gift Primus gave Transformers; it would be a tragedy to waste it.”
    Alternate Form: Crown Victoria, police version
    Inspiration: Owen Burnett of Gargoyles
    Bio: Prowl was a beat cop before the war, where he acted as military police. During the war, he attracted the notice of Enforcer General Sentinel, who took the young bot as his protégé and eventual replacement. Prowl is a thinker, his mind always spinning, always pondering on the most logical, moral outcome. He’s not the jerk Prowl of the Marvel Comics; instead, he’s a quiet, intelligent, affable man whose only problem is that his conflict over some of his beloved mentor’s actions.


    Decepticons: A cult revolving around an ancient Quintesson relic known as the Reformatting Driver, which the Quintessons used in ancient times to twist their slaves into powerful monsters that terrorized Cybertron during the Quintesson Occupation. Megatron stole it from the Oculon Academy of Sciences, killing everyone there but Optimus, only leaving Optimus alive to send a message to the High Council.

    Megatron:
    Motto: “Prepare to be reformatted.”
    Alternate form: spiky oil tanker, much like his DotM form, only healthy and rust-free
    Inspiration: Inspired by BM Megatron (his megalomania), BM Optimus (his drive to reformat his people) and IDW Overlord (his sheer cruelty and power)
    Bio: When the Transformers liberated themselves from the Quintessons, they destroyed as many of the Reformatting Drivers that they could find. Megatron believes that this was a ruinous mistake; he believes that they should have used the Drivers to empower themselves and take control of their evolutionary destiny. Now he’s out to correct that “mistake,” and he’ll drag all of Cybertron kicking and screaming down the path to his vision. There is no line he won’t cross, no torment he won’t inflict, either to further this goal or to sate his sadistic impulses.


    Starscream
    Motto: “Paranoia is a virtue.”
    Alternate form: F-35 Lightning II (most of his body mass goes into his Transmetal Terrorsaur-style arms, his TransTech Silverbolt-style wings, and his digitigrade legs)
    Inspiration: see above for design
    Bio: Starscream used to be an up and coming air commander in the High Council’s air force, but during the war, he switched sides to Megatron’s cause in the pursuit of more power. His entire career has been one of stabbing his superiors in the back and gaining personal power, to the point that he has become Megatron’s right-hand man. Don’t get me wrong; he’s a very effective fighter, especially in the air, to the point that he could have joined Megatron’s inner circle on merit alone. However, he has been looking to the future, specifically on the subject of after Megatron’s final victory. He has come to think that he will have outlived his usefulness to Megatron at that point, and the resulting consequences terrify Starscream, to the point that he is plotting preemptive treachery against Megatron, for fear of his life.

    Transformers - Homeland

    Setup - Sentinel Prime defeated Megatron back on Cybertron, but not without extinguishing his own spark. Optimus became the new leader of the Autobots, and with Cybertron's Energon supplies running low, decides to leave Cybertron in search of a new home. Aboard the Ark is the body of Megatron, which the Autobots took with them in hopes that the Decepticons wouldn't get a chance to revive him. The Decepticons quickly learn of this and follow the Autobots towards Earth.

    Autobot Cast
    • Optimus Prime - New leader. Inexperienced but careful thinker.
    • Bumblebee - Enthusiastic scout. Gets into trouble
    • Cliffjumper - Acts like Bumblebees older brother. Tries to keep him out of trouble. Gets him into it too.
    • Hound - Earth lover. Slight pacifist.
    • Ironhide - Weapons specialist. Prefers to fight with his fists though.
    • Ratchet - One of the older Autobots. Famous medic.
    • Arcee - Ironhides best buddy. Agile warrior.

    Decepticons Cast
    • Megatron - Excellent strategist. Highly experienced war lord.
    • Starscream - Excellent fighter. Cunning and Back stabbing.
    • Soundwave - Communications officer. Tends to stay away from other Decepticons.
    • Thundercracker - Strategic planner. Not much of a fighter.
    • Skywarp - Doesnt follow orders well. Plays tricks on Autobots and Decepticons alike.
    • Lugnut - Decepticon bomber. Near indestructible.
    • Ravage - Reconnaissance. Collects information for Soundwave.
    • Laserbeak - Assassin. Eliminates any humans who may prove a threat to the Decepticons.
    • Shockwave - Cold killer. Logical thinker.
    • Brawl - Heavy weapons. Slightly dimwitted.
    • Vortex - Mad man flier. Decepticon interrogator.

    And this is just the Season One cast! I'd love to introduce more characters in the future, like the remaining Combaticons, some of the Constructicons, Jazz, Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Wheeljack, and the Dreads. I think it could make for a pretty interesting series, and some of the other ideas I've read here sound awesome as well. Someone call Hasbro and tell them about this thread.
