    You know, I seem to remember a thread with a similar idea like this a while back. What if all the toys came to life and started fighting each other? Who would win?

    I think that was the general idea of that thread. I'd hate it if my TFs came to life--mostly the broken ones and the ones I don't play with that often. They're after me man. They're after me!

    you raise a good point, what if it actually ended up playing out more like Childs Play then Toy Story, thats creepy. on a funny side note, i woke up one night and my ROTF leader Megatron was saying his name over and over, it was freaky lol

    well my son kind of does this already. He has a lot of Transformers RPM's which are the same size as his Lightning McQueen die cast cars. The have battles all the time. The autobots and decepticons team up together to try to defeat Lightning McQueen. Not sure who the good guys and who the bad guys are in that battle but it took over my entire living room. Ahh, the mind of an autistic 5 year old.

    Okay, I confess this is an odd favorite subject of mine. I love the concept of toys coming to life.

    TF G1 writer Beth Bornstein did a whole episode about this:

    Child's Play (episode) - Transformers Wiki

    YouTube - transformers episode 43- child's play part 2

    And besides Pixar, other people have had the same funny idea...a LOT:

    - Small Soldiers (1998)
    YouTube - Small Soldiers Trailer

    - Indian in the Cupboard (1995)
    YouTube - star wars, vader, t-rex and robo-cop - Indian in the Cupboard

    - The Christmas Toy (1986)
    YouTube - "The Christmas Toy"

    ...which also spawned a TV series:

    Secret Life of Toys (1994)
    YouTube - Jim Henson's The Secret Life Of Toys Opening Theme

    - Where The Toys Come From (1984)
    YouTube - Where the Toys Come From part 1

    And two of the most famous (and oldest) ones:

    - Pinocchio (1940)
    YouTube - Disney's Pinocchio - Original Theatrical Trailer (1940)

    - The Nutcracker
    Probably the first toys-come-to-life fairy tale, which has been animated, movie-fied, stage-ified, and book-ified many, many times over.

    And besides "Robot Chicken," two of my other personal favorite "toys-come-to-life" shows:

    - Bump in the Night (1993) - "Night of the Living Bread"
    YouTube - Bump In The Night - "Night of the Living Bread, Part I"

    - Action League Now! (2003) - "Sinkhole of Doom"
    YouTube - Action League Now (episode 4) stink hole of doom

    Oh, and then there's the EVIL toys-come-to-life movies like the Chucky franchise and Dark Moon Entertainment's Puppet Master series:

    YouTube - Puppet Master Trailer

    And I can't leave out the classic Twilight Zone episode "Living Doll" (1963):

    YouTube - Talky Tina -- Living Doll -- Two Minute Twilight Zone Project -- Season 5, Episode 6

    And OMG, this is the best one EVAR! The pilot episode "Battleground" from the TV series "Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King" with special effects by Jim Henson's Creature Shop. William Katt plays a hitman who takes out a toy manufacturer. Shortly afterwards, he's delivered a package containing toy soldiers. And the rest...is AWESOME!

    YouTube - Nightmares And Dreamscapes - Battleground toy soldiers Part - 1

    If my Transformers came to life, I don't think they would fight each other. Maybe hurl insults though.

    My daughter and I wonder sometimes if we'll come home to a trashed house since she's certain the Decepticon shelf is harassing the Autobot shelf. Usually Skywarp is suspected of being an instigator. Kids, gotta love 'em.

    I saw this movie on TV when I was a kid, all the toys in a store came to life, from then on I've always had this fantasy about my toys coming to life, hehe. :)

    Seeing as they're all in the same room as my computer, I'd have to melt them down. I'll not allow any sentient being to see what I've intentionally subjected myself to on the internet.

    I don't think it would take Wheeljack, Starscream, or Perceptor too long to strip my PC, Android phone, and digital camera down to bare parts in order to create some sort of Transformer WMD. What about custom figures...if they came to life, would they be all disorientated due to starting out as a completely different figure? My Transformers would be the least of my worries being as how there's a GIGANTIC AT-AT in the corner, and a cluster of Federation Starships nearby...I'm sure the Federation would want a say in things...
    All I know is that if they did come to life, I'd make MP Skywarp transform and go get me burritos from Chipotle.
