    I just got done watching the movie. 2 hours and 15 minutes consisted of me thinking "Holy shit, this is incredible!" and the last 15 minutes thinking "Oh come on now, don't kill ALL the Decepticons off". I mean, holy hell, this was a worse massacre than the '86 movie. So, with this movie being a surefire hit and Movie studios being greedy, I can only assume we'll see a sequel of some sort. But, with the Decepticons practically obliterated, how do you think they could continue the series? Or do you think we'll see a prequel that'll turn out being a soft reboot of sorts?

    Well you'd need some new decepticons.

    I'd start with Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge.

    Heheh, that was my thought too, but they'd need to either introduce a new faction, or bring in some Decepticons from other planets. It'd be kinda boring to just have one massive enemy.

    I just want to see a giant planet eating monstrosity in full CGI glory. Hell, I'd settle for something similar to the '86 movie with today's effects.

    With the backbone of the Decepticons dead I don't see how they could continue this universe into a fourth film.

    To elaborate my personal thoughts on Unicron...perfect chance of some reformatting of dead cons to build a new army under Unicrons command. Galvatron, Cylonus, Scrouge and many other decepticons that never made it to the screen could all just be revived dead cons.

    Oh, I'm sure they could come up with some excuse for bringing Megatron back. I mean, look at G1 Starscream. The guy disintegrated, and that didn't stop him! :lol

    Bring in Bludgeon, Mindwipe and Breakdown. Also known as my favorite ROTF toys.

    Transformers wouldn't be Transformers without Megatron in some form.

    Who says they couldn't introduce a new main villain? It's not like The Fallen was an incredibly popular, important character, and yet...

    Igor jumps on top of the head of Optimus and mind controls Optimus. The mind controlled Optimus kills a lot of autobots.

    Galvatron's perfect, but I think you build towards him instead of simply putting him in there. Have the movie open with Cybertron's destruction, only we see it from another perspective...this one coming from Galvatron's vessel. He witnesses the planet being destroyed and he calls for his men to lock on to wherever the signal is coming from that destroyed their planet.

    Personally, I'd have "tribes" of Decepticons...scattered on Earth after they weren't picked up by the space bridge. That way, you have several working for the third world nations for survival, and you get to have a single tribe coming together and bringing the last Decepticons together. IMO, Thunderwing and Bludgeon are perfect for that...leading their own fanatical tribes towards different goals. Bludgeon would want control of North America for the Decepticons while Thunderwing believes he's a Prime and goes for the Matrix. They both die at the end, allowing for the subplot of Galvatron and his soldiers coming to Earth after they find where the signal that helped decimate their home planet came from.

    I'd incorporate things like Thunderwing having Primus Apotheosis (not that I'd out and out call it that) so when he fights Optimus, it's akin to Optimus fighting somebody engineered to look and act just like him. When he dies, Galvatron could enter Earth's orbit and take Thunderwing's remains to maybe even bring Nemesis Prime out there.

    I'm sure a continuity that has both Scourge and Nemesis Prime would destroy fan brains all over this board, and such anarchy would please me. Bwahahahahaha.

    100% Agree here.

    Definately, along with the massive bastardisation of all the characters with zip of an explanation.

    Oh, and one more thing this sequels needs, if it ever happens; let the Decepticons (or new rival faction) win, even if just for one movie. Seriously, does every Transformers movie have to end the same way? I just wish they'd switch it up, for once.
