    Out of curiousity, I'd like to know what you guys would think of a crossover between two of the most prominent franchises in American history: Halo and the Transformers. If not Halo, what crossover would you most want to see?

    Personally, I'd love to see a Halo and Transformers collaboration; these are my two favorite series and would be a dream scenario.

    Please comment and speculate. If you have criticisms, feel free to share those too just be cool about it.

    I'd want to see a crossover with Stargate, but that's just me. ;)

    Generations Warpath would make a fantastic Scorpion tank. I'd also love to see some halo vehicles transform.

    Jurassic Park crossover, think of the fun. New Grimlock, Swoop, Slag, Snarl, Sludge, and Dinobot too. Then we could also have HA Hound as a Jurassic Park Jeep.

    Fuck to the yes. I've been thinking about the same thing for a long time.

    Anyways:

    Scarab: Scorponok
    Phantom: Skyquake
    Spirit: Lugnut
    Seraph: Blastoff
    Wraith: Megatron
    AA Wraith: Onslaught
    Banshee: Starscream, Skywarp, and Thundercracker
    Heretic Banshee: Sunstorm
    Ghost: Breakdown
    Revenant: Brawl
    Carrier: Trypticon
    Shield World: Unicron

    Warthog: Hound
    Gauss Hog: Ironhide
    Rocket Hog: Optimus Prime
    Scorpion: Warpath
    Elephant: Metroplex
    Halcyon Class Cruiser (similar to Pillar of Autumn): Fortress Maximus
    Mongoose: Bumblebee
    Hornet: Powerglide
    Falcon: Blades
    Longsword: Jetfire
    Sabre: Star Sabre
    Pelican: Silverbolt

    Certain aspects of the Decepticons could also be based on Covenant species.
    Perhaps Targetmasters based on the various weapons of the Halo Universe would work too?

    I enjoy Transformers Crossovers. A few I'd enjoy seeing:

    -The aforementioned Halo
    -G.I. Joe
    -DC (BATMOBILE GUYS, BATMOBILE). Hell, it could just be a whole line of nothing but various Batmobiles.
    -Marvel (With fucking villains. How did they never make a Doctor Doom? How?!)

    Note: I'd like it to be TF characters turning into the vehicles of the given Crossover Property, except in the case of Marvel; I liked the robot versions of Marvel characters shtick they had goin on.

    Not Halo. Transformers is a very character driven franchise, while Master Chief has no personality.

    lol.

    I'm not a Halo fanboy, but I must say something here. Master Chief is an icon at this point; a huuuuge amount of people recognize him, whether they know him as Master Chief, "the guy from Halo", or, and I love this one, people who think he is Halo. Anyway, a Master Chief transformer would likely sell pretty well, given children's infatuation with Halo and Transformers, a combination of the two would likely be a godsend to them.

    Also, really, let's not pretend 50% of Transformers characters don't boil down to "cool guy that is good at fighting", just like the Chief. :lol

    I'm surprised they've never done it, myself. It's such an obvious series for a Transformers crossover, considering all of the vehicles that could be made into toys. And if they run out of vehicles? Make the Covenant vehicles they already used with a different Covenant alien mode! "Well we already made the Wraith that turns into a Brute, why not one that turns into a Hunter!?"

    Then you've obviously never played Halo.

    Granted he's not Norm McDonald, but he's got a personality. Plus there's all the other characters of Halo that DO have large personalities.

    A Halo crossover would be cool. The vehicles lend themselves very well to some cool Tf ideas, and it's a simpel setup. Covenant discovers TFs, tries to induct with Decepticons and Autobots (as is their practice Humans not withstanding) 'Cons play the game to get access to their technology, Autobots ally with humans for obvious reasons. Bing-bang-boom, Megs is a Wraith, Ops is a Scorpion, Starscream's a Banshee, Whatever Autobot car is a Warthog, Astrotrain's a Phantom, Jetfire's a Pelican, etc...

    As much as I love Halo (I'm a complete fanboi. I've read most of the novels.), I have to admit the games are not the deepest examples of fiction mankind has produced. Still, it has personality as a universe.

    Master Chief is intentionally made less developed so the player can project onto him. It's an extremely common tactic and one that irritates me because it never really works.

    Anyway, Halo fanboy ranting aside, I could see amazing things done from a Halo/Transformers line. I think actually I wouldn't want old character to become Halo vehicles. I think I would prefer if the vehicles were used to make new characters for Transformers.

    I like the idea of new characters, and I came up with an idea, new Targetmasters! They are based on Halo weapons of course. I have an idea for a Needler one where the spiky top of the weapon turns into arm shields for him. There could be 3 packs of Targetmasters, as well as having them packed in with the larger toys.

    Some names:

    DMR: Marksman
    Magnum: Sidearm
    Sniper Rifle: Ranger
    Rocket Launcher: Big Bang
    Shotgun: Upclose
    Plasma Pistol: Charger
    Plasma Rifle: Overheat
    Needler: Hardpoint
    Needle Rifle: Headcase
    Plasma Launcher: Lock-on
    Gravity Hammer: Heavyweight

    Its true that in the games he doesn't show off much personality, but would you when you are getting shot at by aliens. For the toys take a transformer character give them a halo partner, and give both of them matching weapons.
