    Let's say Hasbro/Takara hands Kiss Player over to you and tells remake it. How would you change it?

    As for me, instead of actually kissing to get inside a Bot, the Players where suits called K.I.S.S's. Exactly what that stands for, I don't care. The suits allow them to enter a Transformer's processor and control their body. They exit wearing the suit.

    I'd have the Kiss Players all executed by the Legion and have the robots just fight each other...that series creeps me out...

    I wouldn't get involved in the story at all. I'd just re-release the vehicles but in die-cast this time. I want a die-cast Ford GT Rodimus with his KP paint scheme (except maybe remove the dumb looking flames from his forearms). Auto Troopers in die-cast would be cool, too.

    Then I'd release new molds. New 1/24 Binaltech cars! A nice dream.

    The series creeps you out, but the idea of violence (and death) towards young women doesn't? Okaaaaaay...

    The actual band Kiss would team up with the Transformers with their guitars and defeat the Decepticons.

    Seems like there's a weird disconnect, then. By your own account, you're already being creeped out by what is happening to (or with) fictional characters.

    creepy little girls seducing robots IS creepy, whether they are fictional or not. But killing off a fictional character doesn't bother me at all

    They would all interact with the transformers as headmasters or brainmasters, Masterforce/Victory style.

    I'd make it a Magical Girl/Transformers series.

    Magical Girls that partner with Magical Mecha, vehicles that turn into Female bots, unicorns, etc. No joke, I think it would be cool.

    A mix of say.... Transformers/Madoka Magica/Blackrock shooter/Final Fantasy 13

    Just for fun, trying to approach this from a more serious perspective:

    - First and foremost, establish that all of the human characters are 18+ and change the art style to reflect that.
    - Tone down the blatant sexualized imagery. Fan service, yes. Dripping urethra tongues and symbolic rape? No.
    - Separate the series off into it's own continuity, disconnected from G1 or Alternators or wherever the original KissPlayers was supposed to be set.
    - Use the series to explore the idea of how a human and TF bonding really affects both parties mentally and emotionally, especially when the partners share a mental link. We've had several series now in the US continuity, mostly involving the Head/Target/Powermaster technologies, where a human(oid) and a sentient TF have been joined together, yet none have really examined just how that impacts both of the characters. My idea for a revamped KissPlayers would be a slower series, with less action/combat and more focus on the developing friendships and relationships between the TF and their partner. How does it affect one's day-to-day life having an alien being bonded to them that can experience their thoughts and feelings? Is it possible for a human and their TF partner to fall in love? Do TFs even have a concept of 'love' in the way humans do? How does it affect one partner if the other dies? Etc.
    - Introduce some male human KissPlayers and include female TFs. While most of the pairings would be 'female human/male TF', a few would be same-gender or 'male human/female TF'. Use this to examine the differences in how TFs and humans view gender and explore any potential differences in gender conventions between the two races.

    No. Just no. If they asked me to remake it, I'd tell them to burn it.

    All great suggestions. Despite the knee-jerk reaction most people suffer every time they hear the words "Kiss Players", the series you describe would be very interesting. Especially the bolded part. The IDW comics did get into that a tiny bit, but it would be great to see it further explored and over a longer time.

    Something like the Magical Girl aspect Backpack suggested, but I'd still have the robots as males. They attack each other using crazy nineties laser effects and explosions. It would be a ridiculous anime series on a quest of madness. All the Autobot girls wear frilly dresses and look like they came straight out of Touhou.

    Also, there are Decepticon Kiss Players who are bad girls and wear school uniforms that match their robot partner. Because school uniforms are hot.
