    Ok so maybe I'm crazy here, but after reading the IDW comics, is anyone else getting a headmasters vibe from Mech, and their role so far in Prime?
    From the way they were introduced, to this "project Chimera", it just seems to me to be where this is heading.
    Am I alone here in thinking, and quite honestly hoping that this is the direction they will take this, please share any thoughts or ideas on this, just please keep it civil.

    I don't read the comics but I assume MECH will eventually have transforming MECH SUITS. Will they be Headmasters or more like Gundam type suits I have no clue but I can not wait until they introduce this 3rd faction of transforming bots.

    In the comics, there were a group of humans who in actions very much resemble Mech, they used Sunstreaker to make themselves robot bodies to which they became the heads( with modifications to their own bodies of course).
    Their headmaster army consisted of yellow cars, I believe.
    If memory serves weren't Mech's cars yellow?

    Headmasters are stupid.

    Pilot-able mechs are always awesome.

    EDIT: And no, MECHs cars are green.

    I think they were purple, but that doesn't really affect the theory.

    @Ryoku- To each their own, I kinda dug headmasters, but I do like Piloted mechs as well.

    I have to admit I am a sucher for the headmaster gimmick so I welcome it. One thing I can say with confidence is that MECH will show up with a 3rd faction and will either be Head Masters or MECH guys in Transforming MECH suits. I'm happy either way both as a collector and one whois a fan of the show and what it will do to add new depth to the franchise. There is no way MECH is studying Transformers so intensely and the fact that they are weapons manufacturers to have them not become a new faction. That and the name bein gthe first half of MECHSUIT. I see it happening this season, next ep Mech shows up again and they have TF diagrams on their screen.

    Fully agree, the main thing that makes me think HM is a possability(aside from the buildup), is the name Chimera, now I know that name has been used for Pilotable mechs( at least in the Megaman X series) but , and again I may be, and probably am off, doesn't that name imply more a fusion( like of human, and other) than a simple mech/pilot relationship?
    Please keep in mind this is all simple speculation, bored theory, and whatnot.

    A chimera is a mythical beast with the body of a lion with a second goat head and the tail is a snake.

    Yes but Chimera also refers to the fusion of multiple animals or in this case Humans and Transformers.

    I can't say the fusion will be HM based with 100% confidence but I am confident that we will see it happen...hopefully soon.

    No.

    Headmasters sucked, TFA did a great job of pointing that out.

    Mech may be heading toward a "Headmasters" idea but I don't like the idea because I didn't like "Headmasters".

    Wow I'm a little surprised at how much hate headmasters get, but hey maybe Prime could do it well, or maybe it will end up being piloted mechs, and in all honesty this thread was started more just to see if anyone else thought they were heading in this direction, not so much whether HMs are a good gimmick or not.
    Not that all of your opinions are not valid, just not quite the particular debate at hand.

    The way I take Project Chimera is that it is a fusion of Human & Alien (Cybertronian) based technologies

    Personally I haven't seen any indication that MECH has any sort of neuro-link tech which would be good to test prior to make the HM systems

    I still think that any robots made will be of a piloted nature
