    Here's an interesting scenario. The writers go through G1 and look at each episodes plots. They decide to take ONE, update it and make it better, and use it for an Animated episode. The question is, which story do they use? That's where we come in. Which episodes from G1 do each of you feel should/could be redone for the Animated series? Also, if you like, provide changes in the plots where you feel are necessary to better the transition to Animated. I'll post a few of my choices after we get some replies in here.

    I know you probably meant G1 episode from the TV show but how about the original Comic Book from Marvel. It would have to be THE CARWASH OF DOOM!!!!!
    Not to mention we would get an animated Skids!!!!
    Sweetness!

    'Kremzeek!' would be a nice choice. However, I feel it might have to be made a flashback episode in order to explain Kremzeek's appearance on the 'don't touch that dial' screen brought up on the telly in 'Sound and Fury'.

    My personal vote is 'A Plague of Insecticons', with Ratchet being the one who lifts the big ship at the end using his magnets (assisted by Prime, of course), Bee complaining about being bested in the electro-stingers department by Shrapnel (we could have him learn some humility by getting blasted a couple times) and the Insecticons being a trio of incorrigible pranksters based on Wayward's Insecticomics interpretation. Oh, and with the core Decepticon cast not participating in battle with the Autobots, but letting the Insecticons do all the work - much like 'Sound and Fury' and 'Rise of the Constructicons'. Maybe we could even throw Wasp in somewhere.

    Starscream's Brigade.
    Animated Combaticons!!

    ...probably wouldn't make sense though, seeing how Starscream already has a clone army....

    Y'know, I just gotta go "The Ultimate Doom". Such an awesome concept for a story that I really thought it was the best thing ever until I rewatched it. I'd bet Animated could do it up proper.

    Failing that, steal the title from "Heavy Metal War", and cast Bruce Dickonson and Rob Halford as guest voices. Somehow. Even thought it would make zero sense.

    The Return of Optimus Prime - as the story where Prime steps up and becomes the next "Ultra" - Ultra Optimus. It could be BLOODY creepy if done right, terrifying even.

    Gah, we need Animated Battlechargers! Do "Decepticon Graffiti" but instead of RAAT in Circuit Breaker it's the Autobots who would battle the two Con punks...

    Of course, they would be voiced by the voice actors of Beavis and Butt-Head. :) 

    I already have plans to redesign Runabout and Runamuck for Animated, they'd have rollerskates for feet (just like their toys) and have the power to transform in split-seconds.

    I could see a variation of "Big Broadcast of 2006" to give Wreck-Gar another episode.

    B.O.T wasnt craptastic it was awesome............ ok it wasnt the best episode but it did have alot of swindle :) 

    In all seriousness one of my favorite episodes of all time and can be used in this line is when Swoop goes to Cybertron with Spike and Carly. That was one of the coolest episodes in my opinion because of the ancient tunnels and the old hall of the autobots. Just replace Spike and Carly with Sari and possibly her dad and then you have a good little episode that makes the Dinobots learn about their home and start being more autobot freindly. :) 

    Unfortunately cant remember the name at the moment

    Actually, we're already getting one.

    SPOILER!

    At the Botcon presentation, they put up four slides. One related to the season finale (Bulkhead the Spacebridge Mechanic), and another said "Megatron's Master Plan". Rewatch the beginning of The Elite Guard, Rise of the Constructicons and all Porter C. Powell's scenes in Black Friday. The seeds have been sown for this storyline already!

    Although my vote would be for Five Faces of Darkness. Animated Quintessons!
