    Wouldn't the films be under Marvel Studios?
    Would the comics still be made by Marvel instead of IDW?
    Would we see Transformers in Marvel games, as well as Marvel VS Capcom games?

    If Marvel still owned the Transformers today, how do you think things would've been?

    Marvel never owned Transformers. They had the comic rights in the 80s but Hasbro owned the franchise.

    Hasbro only paid Marvel to write the comics. They didn't get exclusive rights.

    We'd have 20 movies, including movies about a single character.



    Transformers would also be toned down and have shows for 5 year olds.
    *looks at Disney*

    I don't think they quite paid Marvel to write the comics. They might have paid them initially to do the back story, and character development, but after that, it's more like Marvel chose to do more books, and then pay Hasbro for the use of the Transformers in their comics.

    We'd have 20 better done movies :)  and yes probably one about Bumblebee (shudders at the thought of toy shelves filled with even more Bumblebees)

    Also, Hasbro has shows for 5 year olds *Looks at Rescue Bots*

    Nothing wrong with having Disney backing you up, look at all the exposure Marvel's gotten since.

    And I'm referring to Spider-Man 1 & 2, Iron Man 1 & 2, Thor, First Class, Captain America and (apparently) The Avengers-quality. Not Fantastic Four, X-Men 3 and Hulk quality. :p

    Not one of those is a Marvel Studios film. Most of the ones you mentioned in your former list were.

    I was thinking about making a thread like this but wasn't sure if it was made? Part of me does wonder what if the Autobots were a subfaction of the Avengers or if the Decepticons were in league with the skurlls. Better yet we can finally have the ultimate showdown of UNICRON VS. GALACTUS!
    EDIT: Also maybe Death's Head would still be around, yes?

    We would have three really good Transformers movies, instead three mediocre Transformers movies. Plus they could make a cameo in Avengers. =D

    Or Spider-Man and Nick Fury make cameo's in Trasnformers movies.

    Then Samuel L.Jackson gets his own TF Wiki page......

    Hulk and X-men 3 are far better than Thor. The Edward Norton Hulk, I mean.

    The characters would be recogniseable and we'd probably have cool Matrix Affinity Thunderwing by now.

    The human looking Nebulans would be on Earth and Spike would have a cool secret identity.

    My only demand would be that Prowl is based on his approachable, logical Budiansky self not the Furman whiner.

    The Dinobots would be badass.

    We'd get some great Decepticon villains each movie:

    Megatron
    Shockwave
    Starscream
    Scorponok
    Thunderwing
    Jhiaxus

    Sorry, just enjoying the dream.

    Neither Spider-Man nor the X-Men films were Marvel Studios productions
