    What story arc would you expect in the next spin-offs/sequels of Transformers movies? I honestly want to see the adaptation of "Wreckers Last Stand" or "Shattered Glass"[​IMG]

    The sequel to the Last Knight. I'm going to list points to save time.

    -Megatron, damaged after TLK, finds himself in a deep cave (Ideal filming location: Mexico's Cave of the Swallows) and talking with Unicron. Unicron turns Megatron into a new form of Galvatron, which is Megatron's chaotic, Earth form. During the film, Megatron may switch between the Galvatron and Megatron forms depending on whether Quintessa's or Unicron's influence is stronger.
    -Returning robots: Megatron/Galvatron, Prime, Quintessa, Pathetic Dirty Foursome, All four Dinobots, Hot Rod, Dragonstorm/Knights, Sqweeks, Barricade, Berserker.
    -New robots: Cyclonus, Sharkticons, Trypticon, Blitzwing. Cyclonus will be a servant of Unicron and not a Decepticon. He'll be loyal to Galvatron but not Megatron and will have a similarly chaotic transformation to Galvatron given Unicron represents chaos. Sharkticons will be servants of Quintessa she unleashes, and many will become corrupted by Unicron and fight for him. Trypticon will be a Decepticon first but become corrupted by Unicron and devastate the protagonist forces. Blitzwing is a new Decepticon allied with Barricade and the escaped Berserker.
    -Returning humans: Sam, Izzy, Joshua Joyce, Simmons, Lennox. A good little mix of the five films. Keep it minimal.
    -Unicron inhabits many terrestrial, geological worlds; he represents chaos. Primus, who inhabits Cybertron among other mechanical worlds, represents order. Quintessa and the Creators serve neither, but rather aim to preserve the balance between the two. Cybertron's state after DotM and the war tipped the balance toward Unicron and chaos, hence why she opposes him at the moment.
    -Unicron caused the four mass extinctions via geologic fits before the Cretaceous extinction, which was at least partially caused by the Creators.
    -The Creators also created the Transformers as soldiers and servants for the Quints to maintain the balance between order and chaos, with the mechanical Transformers often being ordered to devastate terrestrial worlds with organic life in the past to maintain the balance. The detonation of Seeds on countless worlds helped create a balance in the cosmos between chaotic organic life and ordered mechanical beings. Furthermore, the Transformers were non-thinking machines until the Allspark gave them life.
    -Climactic action scenes include Prime vs. Galvatron and "The Last Charge of the Dinobots." Ideal filming location: the Kalahari and Namib deserts in southern Africa. Galvatron will fight Prime alone while Quintessa and Unicron fight over control of Galvatron/Megatron. Wanting to save Prime and save the world, the Pathetic Dirty Foursome will ride the four AoE Dinobots across the rugged, arid landscape of southern Africa. Hot Rod will ride Dragonstorm. Opposing them is Cyclonus and Unicron-corrupted Sharkticons and Trypticon. Unicron, being the Earth, will also try to stop the Dinobots and Autobots by causing pits and chasms and fissures to form in the Earth as they fight their way to Prime and Galvatron. Trypticon will shoot down Dragonstorm, killing at least some of the Knights. The Decepticons not under Unicron's influence will come to rescue some of their former Autobot foes. Not all Autobots, Decepticons, Dinobots, and Knights will survive.
    -Unicron is not destroyed; he must always remain for the balance between chaos and order to be present. Only then can life thrive in the universe. With the balance in the universe restored, at least for now, 'till all are one.

    good start but I would have left a Dead Space 3 type cliffhanger by having earth as a planet itself and (suprise! Mars and venus) destroyed and the TFs flee the solar system with the matrix of leadership and the main human characters to find other surviving comrades.

    Keep in mind my movie idea is to be a conclusion, but if one were to want further sequels Unicron doesn't need to be the final threat. He wasn't the final threat in G1, nor was he a threat in G2. The American cartoon ended with Galvatron and Zarak in space. The G1 comics ended with Bludegeon's Decepticons hunting the few surviving Autobots before the Last Autobot starts resurrecting dead Bots, and the surviving Cons retreat. G2's main threat was the Swarm and the Cybertronian Empire.

    There should be some kind of basic rules applied on every movie. First one will be no more recycling robot designs. Second one will be every robots got fate, no more Barricade's disappear.

    A LSOTW with the Movie Wreckers would be so kick ass.

    I also want to see a straight-up Suicide Squad-esc movie with the TLK Cons.

    It should be a simple enough premise that the casual audience can 'get' & be excited for as well as fans.

    Some form of Decepticon heist movie would be awesome. I really don't want to say Suicide Squad with Decepticons but... Suicide Squad with Decepticons.

    Prime is already an amoral, soulless murder machine and that's the GOOD guy version. Would the Shattered Glass Optimus actually by more of a hero than that?

    Eh, I'd be tempted to go down a path that's a little...different for this franchise.

    I'd go full-on apocalyptic, and show humankind having completely and pretty much permanently lost its collective sh** in the face of the revelation that the very Earth everyone's been standing on is the vessel for Giant Space Robot Satan. The governments of the world tried to stem this off early on by using salvaged Pillar technology to stage a surprise planet-wide nuclear attack on the Autobot-Decepticon colonies on Cybertron in the vain hope of forever ending Cybertronian incursion on Earth, but all this succeeded in doing was getting Cybertronian tech into the hands of terrorist spies and getting both Optimus Prime and Megatron exiled from their homeworld for the remainder of their lifetimes for prolonging the ***damned war that led to this in the first place - even though nobody's apparently seen anything of Megatron in the years since the last battle. As a result, Optimus is forced to remain on Earth, although by this point humankind's situation has become so nihilistic that nobody in authority seems to care anymore, which makes it a little easier for him to get by on Earth this time when he becomes a participant in the giant robot death-matches with which human encampments now entertain themselves. Except somebody in authority who DOES care HAS noticed - agents of the U.N.-created Earth Defense Command (basically the b^$+^rd child of NEST and the Main Force Patrol) - but rather than being out to kill him, it turns out they need his help: one of the more aggressive cults that's sprung up in the shadow of Unicron's horn appropriated some of that Cybertronian tech, and the result was the massacre of an EDC outpost in what's left of Los Angeles. Optimus isn't interested in what the EDC's selling until he learns the cult's primary target is Daniel Witwicky, now-teenaged son of the deceased Sam Witwicky, and the reason the Heralds Of Unicron are after him is because Daniel has been manifesting cyber-manipulative telekinetic abilities as the result of his father's exposure to the Allspark years ago, which to the Heralds could make him an asset...or a threat. Thus, Optimus reformats himself into something less flashy, and while the alt-mode may still be familiar, the paint job isn't what you'd expect...
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    ...not that it'll do much good once "Scourge" (the bounty-hunter identity he assumes while in Herald territory) pierces the cult's ragtag circle of 'Decepticon' enforcers - actually, former KSI prototypes re-jiggered with proper transformations due to the absence of Transformium - and discovers the identity of the leader-figure which the fanatically-loyal cultists identify as their glorious messiah...

    In essence, a TF movie that's essentially a love-letter to the dystopic sci-fi actioners of the '80s - "Escape From New York", "The Road Warrior", "The Terminator" - with vicious car-chase scenes that are almost totally devoid of any slo-mo, almost every scene shot at night, and with the Movies' darker take on the TF Brand Figurehead Himself standing in for Kurt Russell and Mel Gibson (in fact, the black deco could also be seen as a nod to the cab that Arnold hijacks going into the climax of that first "Terminator" - or, for that matter, the one the T-1000 takes up for T2's canal chase).

    Last time this thread came out I suggested a Wreckers Vs (Real) Seekers movie, the time before that I think I said Sideswipe and Lennox.

    This is blowing my mind!
    Shattered through the looking glass?!
    I want a Barricade movie, I want to see the mission Starscream sent him on after TF1, could be something simple like he has to break a villainous human out of a high security prison and get him to an evacuation/debriefing point. He can get his mission updates from Soundwave, and maybe the occasional assist from Ravage or Lazerbeak. End boss could be Hot Rod.. hell could even be set it in France.

    They had the chance to show Barricade could carry a movie in TLK... but.. well.. y'all seen TLK.

    Nice ideas Galvatross, here’s my ideal TF7 (which will never happen)
    My idea: The film opens with a narration by none other then Megatron, he recounts how Prime and the Autobots were victorious after the events of TLK and explains how the the world has become complete chaos and there is little order within Earth’s governments upon the discovery that Unicron is earth, TLK’s destruction, and Cybertron now orbiting our world. Megatron also elaborates on how Unicron has begun to effect Earth majorly and could possibly re-awaken soon.

    After Megatron narration we cut to the autobots (all the autobots, dinobots, and knights) trying to restore Cybertron. We learn much about cybertron’s current state in this scene and are introduced to a few new Autobot characters who have returned from hiding on earth AND throughout the universe who joined the ranks of the current cast. These autobots COULD be Ultra Magnus, Cliffjumper, or any named autobot yet to be on screen, and maybe some un-named protoforms etc. However, they wouldn't have much character development, this film would be the conclusion to the previous 6 film's story or like the end to season 2 of the live action universe (or the live action universe could completely end here who knows).

    Also, Human involvement in this film would be minimal: Lennox, Santos, Morshower, quick shot of Cade and Sam maybe even Simmons.

    After our Autobot scene, we cut to Megatron who appears to be rebuilding the decepticon army, but the audience wouldn't be given exact details on how large it is (yet). Confirmed returning cons aligned with Megatron would be Barricade and Berserker. The new Decepticon generals would be Thundercracker and Skywarp and Blitzwing , they could re-use starscream's body (or atleast his look, not necessarily an f-22) for the former two. Megatron and Thundercracker then are seen meeting in China with a rag-tag group of washed up mercenaries (this would be the remaining crew Lockdown hired) and their leader would be Axor (Axor - Transformers Wiki). Megatron bargains a deal with Axor, who agrees to help Megs to avenge his mentor after his death to Optimus Prime, and the autobots stealing the Knightship. Axor turns into a black dodge demon/hellcat. Axor is in possession of Lockdown's personal mini-ark, as seen when lockdown captures Optimus, and a few Orbital Assault Carriers (O.A.C).

    Cut back to the Autobots who receive a message from Megatron who wants to make talks with Prime. Optimus then comes down from Cybertron and meets with Megatron on a remote beach along the California coast (a slight homage to bumblebee the movie). This is where we have the long overdue character building scene with Optimus and Megatron, with Optimus being the aggressor. Megatron would reflect on their days on cybertron, perhaps a brief flashback scene (arena concept art battle anyone?). Optimus would be obviously done and irritated with Megatron throughout the entire talk. Mentioning's of Quintessa would come up, Megatron would explain how he hunted/tracked the deceiver down after TLK and "learned a valuable truth" from her about Unicron and how to stop him, before Megaton "dispatched" her in her weakened state (though that is never proven). The scene ends with Megatron offering a final conclusion to the war between Autobot and Decepticon and he gives a location where the final battle will take place at Mt. Shasta California. I chose this place as the final battle because this is absolutely the PERFECT landscape for a final battle, large open area and rolling hills and a MAGNIFICENT view of the volcano in the background (look up Mt. Shasta landscape and go to images). Anyway, Megatron tells Prime to meet him there and gives a time limit "you have 2 weeks" or whatever villain B.S., and says if Prime doesn't show, millions of his "precious" insects will die under his orders. He then transforms and leaves.

    Optimus returns to the Autobots and contacts Morshower and Lennox who are already tied up with Unicron's world ending crisis, and tells of Megatron's threat. He lets them know where the decepticons attack is planned.

    Next we see Axor flying near Saturn in the mini-ark following a list of coordinates given by Megatron. He flies in and is amazed by what he sees. The not-so-crashed nemesis being repaired by the remaining army of Con's along with Two Decepticon attack/drop ships from DOTM (the giant ones with tendrils that brains and wheelie crash). Also for scale since it isn't specifically clear, I think the Nemesis is bigger then the Knightship and around the size Dragonstorm's ship Bee and Prime fight on, which I will refer to as the "talisman" ship since it looks like the talisman. But back to the story. Axor is informed as he flies up to the ship through dialogue via comm-link with Skywarp that the two drop ships were teleported back through the wormhole to cybertron when the space bridge collapsed in DOTM, taking a couple hundered decepticons and O.A.C with them (as seen in dotm as they are dragged into the sky with cybertron). The two drop ships were then taken command of by Blitzwing, Skywarp, and Thundercracker when they teleported back and the decepticons had to flee when the mad goddess Quintessa took control of the remaining pieces of Cybertron. After the two ships flew toward earth through space, they were contacted by Megatron and told to go to the crashed Nemesis coordinates, explaining Quintessa had restored the ship on the way to earth for Megatron due to his alliance with her and his new form (this could be a slight homage to the 1986 movie when Unicron makes Megatron Galvatron and gives him a ship, except this is the reverse of that). As Axor flies up to the ship we see a wide shot of a Infernocus combiner helping protoforms rebuild the Nemesis.

    Back on Cybertron we see Prime preparing for Battle seeing no other options. He gives a speech to the Autobots aboard the Knightship before they take off for battle toward Earth. We then cut to a battle masked Megatron standing on one of the hills facing Mt. Shasta. He is accompanied by Blitzwing, Thundercracker, Skywarp, Bersker, and Barricade. We then cut to a shot of Prime, looking down atop Mt. Shasta, locked onto Megatron and the cons as if they are staring at eachother. We then see a beautiful shot as the knightship appears to come around the volcano accompanied by the U.S. helicopters and fighter jets (and yes don't worry this final battle won't focus on the military but they have to be there). The knightship begins to descend towards the cons and Optimus senses a trick from Megatron. The military opens fire on the Decepticons, and the decepticons fire back atop their hill. Megatron gets hit by two ground missiles and com links to axor the signal. All of a sudden a space bridge opens (as seen in DOTM) and the entire remaining decepticon army flies through. The nemesis and the two drop ships and hundreds of assault carriers being lead through the bridge by the mini-ark commanded by Axor. Optimus amazed recounts how Megatron must have gathered the space bridge technology via Sentinel's head at KSI.

    All out war erupts. Hound and Crosshairs are deployed off the knightship and begin attacking the O.A.C. in their own fighter craft backing up the military. The dinobots come off the knightship as well and attack the ground units of decepticons along with a few other no name cannon fodder autobots and military ground units. We see more infernocons drop out of a drop ship and combine before attacking Grimlock. We see Axor crash land the mini-ark into the cockpit of the Knightship, he jumps out and fights off the autobots inside and fights drift and then detonates a "lockdown" grenade within the cockpit causing the ship to crash land (idk which named autobots would die but this has to kill someone, also axor dies in the explosion). This is a Cybertronian Battle we have ALL waited for. We cut to Megatron flying around shooting down Military aircraft, looking for Prime. But he questions too soon, Optimus rides in on Dragonstorm and attacks Megatron, knocking him down atop Black Butte (look up black butte mt. shasta). However, Dragonstorm is shot at by Blitzwing and Skywarp and prime gets shot off and crashes near Megatron. The two engage battle masks and totally duke it out. They fight until megatron gets the better of Prime and fusion cannons him off the side of the butte where he begins to tumble down the side. He gets shot at by O.A.C's while he falls and he shoots some down before he regains control and lands at the bottom of the hill. He then flies up back towards Megatron and tackles him in a mid-air collision and the two crash land near the mouth of the volcano.

    Trying to recover, Megatron then orders Thundercracker to do what they actually came here for. We then cut to Thundercracker and he flies over to the mouth of the volcano, now seemingly slightly active. He deploys out of the bomber bay two creator-seeds which blow up once they hit the volcano. A massive earthquake commences and shakes the area. The Mountain begins to rumble more and suddenly an eruption occurs, but not what you'd think. Out of the Mountain comes minions of Unicron (likes unicron's "protectors" in TF: Prime). Megatron recovering reveals to Prime how this was his plan all along, to release the chaos bringer through their massive battle and awaken him fully. Prime enraged brushes Megatron off, and lops off his arm (right cannon arm obviously) before Megatron finishes explaining and Megatron falls out of picture. We then see the Unicron minions attacking Autobots AND Decepticons who then quit fighting to fight the larger threat of Unicron. Optimus frantically tries to figure out how to stop Unicron from fully awakening (montage cuts of people/transformers looking defeated, maybe a shot of Sam and Cade watching on a tv). Prime, still atop the volcano shrouded in smoke looking into the inferno of Unicron's minions' endless waves coming out of the volcano, gets surprise attacked by a one armed Megatron. Megatron uses Prime's sword and Pins him to the side of the mountain (homage to Lockdown pinning prime). Megatron then explains his end goal, he explains how he knew prime would have never agreed to work with him to stop unicron (due to this being murder prime) so he needed to lure him here to get what he needed, the Matrix and the staff, both held by Optimus. He tells Prime how Quintessa told him that the staff and the matrix can both be used to stop Unicron, and that this volcano was one of Unicron's MANY ventilation shafts (the dude consumes planets, he needs to let out the gas somewhere). This volcano specifically leading closer to Unicron's spark then any other. Megatron then rips open Primes chest (doesn't kill him) and takes the staff and Matrix. Before he leaves he turns to Prime and says something epic about how he knows cybertron could never be under his rule anymore and how their war has gone on for too long. He then transforms and flies into Unicron, we cut to a shot of Optimus' face where he says "Goodbye...Brother" (Megatron thus restores the brother symbol he had to Optimus). Then Megatron flies into Unicron's spark, puts it forever dormant with the power of the staff and the Matrix. Megatron saves the universe.

    The battle ends, Unicrons' minions "phantom menace it" and all die. Optimus comes off the Volcano holding Megatron's sword declaring the war over. And tells of Megatron's sacrifice. Humanity and the Cybertronians enter a long lasting peace with Cybertron now next to earth. The filmverse can essentially end.

    More decepticon centered and more evenly matched battle. Obviously more can be added to the Autobot V. Decepticon Battle, Bumblebee vs Barricade conclusion scene, Maybe the talisman ship comes in and engages the nemesis in a spaceship battle, who knows, lots of possibilities.

    Thanks DotmShockwave! Mt. Shasta as a location definitely reminds me of the first two seasons of the cartoon. Megatron definitely goes kamikaze at the end there! :lol

    So basically "shattered glass" adaptation. I really want to see a decepticon focused movie as well!

    this is why we need a decepticon-focused movie. With a fact that Optimus getting more and more corrupted by a continuing war, hence the brutality.

    Cybertronians making a cameo on Seth McFarlane’s The Orville would be interesting.

    Having had the Allspark, sun harvester, space bridge, seed and talisman / staff, I think it would be good to move away from the Cybertronian widget maguffins. I think it would be good to see how non-military, non-government humans have reacted to Transformers and have human civilians as the actual threat / enemy.

    They could introduce a Circuit Breaker-like character, who is out for full-on revenge against the TFs after being crippled during the Battle of Chicago.

    Ignore all those decepticons planet and fighter jet stuff, all focus on decepticons robots, bring in one team combiner and 3 main villain would be enough. Etc like Combaticons, Overlord, Ramjet and Tidal Wave.. Tell a simple story that they come to earth to revenge humanity and Autobots, makes them more powerful, and bring us some spectacle fight scene to us! Those human face autobots please change to robot face.

    It would be cool to see a Wild West Transformers movie. Maybe with Hound and/or Daytrader, even though I don't know what they would transform into :p
