    Anyone else want to see them do a game that leads into Prime as a sequel to FOC?

    Maybe we can have Ironhide on earth and have him leave.

    Great as it sounds,I think HMS wants to focus on the WFC universe for now.

    I think the two are connected.

    Have to agree with kaijuguy19. Like many have said elsewhere here at TFW2005 these stories are similar, but different, much like the G1 cartoon and the G1 comics, though a little closer together.

    I would rather have it be the G1 prequel HM said WFC was before it released than a Prime prequel. Maybe use the updated classics look if they feel they need more up to date designs when they arrive on earth. Although if HM have switched gears and was told by hasbro to make it a Prime prequel instead of G1, that explains why they call foc a spiritual succsesor instead of direct sequal to WFC if the continuities have changed.

    There is a three year period mentioned in the Prime cartoon where nothing happens pretty much ("First Decepticon activity in three years" says Ratchet), so they must've been on Earth BEFORE that. That time period could be when the game takes place. Perhaps they were fighting on Earth in the 80's, explaining a more G1 based look?

    Umm, I was thinking a mix of the WFC style and the Prime style for the characters, and have the game take place in '07.

    I have a crazy idea, what if WFC and FOC were prequels to . . . the classicsverse?

    Highly unlikely. But that could be your personal canon.

    That's right. WFC/FOC and TFP are in a sense in the same universe but with different countinuitys and stories just like G1.

    So, the novels are more in-continuity with Prime than the games?

    Fair enough. The games are more fun that the novels from what I hear anyways.

    Not necessarily. It has a bit closer feel to WFC. However, the Ex-novels themselves also have their own independent story line from WFC and Prime.

    That would certainly be cool. Perhaps the game could be about the Autobots coming to grips with the Earth? Maybe Agent Fowler could be featured as a character, and the game explains how they met him?

    That can actually work! If there's not going to be an episode or a movie focused on the Autobots first arrivel to earth then a video game about it could be an alternate option.Maybe when HMS finishes the WFC series they can go for that!

    I think it would have to start with the comic prequel; have Cliff/Arcee land on earth, and then scan their new vehicle modes.

    We could have six autobot levels and three decepticon (Cliff, Arcee, Breakdown, Ratchet, Soundwave, Bulkhead, Bumblebee, Starscream and Optimus) ending with the Decepticons retreating for a few years.

    Crazy awesome, in my book.


    On topic, if they make a sequel to FOC that magically turns all the G1 goodness of the WFC/FOC universe into those shitty TFP monstrosities, I won't buy it. Period. Don't give a shit how well it plays.

    Wow what a way to insult people who like the look of the TFP characters.
