    I guess it would deal with the seekers, that would make since, but that would mean NO PRIME. MEGATRON, OR BEE!!!!! If the prequels would take place on cybertron, it would be way too expensive to make or have downgraded special effects.

    I still remain unconvinced it's even needed/wanted by anybody other than a few die-hards.

    Megatron would still be frozen and OP and BB don't land on earth till the first movie.

    Only if you cling on to earth as the main location for the movies.

    A prequel can start without involving earth.

    The prequel could involve Soundwave, Laserbeak, Jetfire and BB, all of those were on Earth before movie One.

    Make a prequel trilogy about Sector 7.

    - The first one about Archibald Witwicky going to the artic, Jetfire and his Seekers [Silverbolt, Air Raid, Skydive e.t.c] against Skyquake and his Seekers [Thundercracker, Skywarp, Dirge e.t.c], battles along the way.
    One group trying to free Megatron, the other trying to keep Megatron frozen.

    - Second one about The First Seven discovering Megs and his eventual re-location to the Hoover Dam, Guess what? More Seekers! [Slipstream, beyatch], Jetfire again as the main hero.
    A very "Hearts of Steel" movie.

    - In the last one, make the final stand of the heroes in WWII, Soundwave leading the final charge of the Seekers agaisnt Jetfire, Jetfire with the Allies and Soundwave and his pals with The Axis.
    At the end, Jetfire would send a message to Optimus so he can bring his forces to Earth [leading to the 2007 movie], just as Soundwave would send a message to SS [I know, techinically the message took fifty years to reach them].

    Awesomeness would be awesome.

    ^ Love the idea. I think they could involve some good Cybertron bits in there though. Maybe showing what's going on on Cybertron while all that is happening.

    That would be great, perhaps some brief scenes on each movie:

    - On the first, a brief scene with Megatron leaving Shockwave in charge of Cybertron and coming to Earth to find the AllSpark [and y'know, becoming a ten-foot tall posicle], alongside the main bosses of the 'Con army [Bonecrusher, Barricade, Blackout, Brawl and Starscream], much to Starscream's dismay.

    - Second one, Sentinel and Optimus on the War? Maybe Sentinel's betrayal and the whole "Ark leaving Cybertron" and another about Optimus taking command of the Autobot army.

    - On the last, Cybertron dying, leading Shockwave, SS and Optimus to leave Cybertron and head to space.

    All scenes would be nice touches.

    Those sound great. It would possibly be able to show how everything from TF1 to TF3 were tied together somehow. Sentinel and Megatrons deal before both of their incidents. This sprinkled in among the rest would make a great prequel IMO.

    First - The start of the legacy of Primes and The Fallen's betrayal. It could fill some holes in ROTF.

    Second - The start of the war with Optimus and Megatron being brothers.

    Third - Megatron and Sentinel Prime negotiating and the beginning of the first movie.
