    What the title says. Say the writing team for the next Transformers TV Show asked you to say one thing you'd like to see, or not like to see in the show. What would it be?

    While it can be specific (like characters and such), think more along the lines of basic story ideas and concepts (like how death is handled and such)

    Just whatever you can think of.

    "Finish your drink, there's more coming."

    Oh wait, I've said that (or something similar) to a few of them. Ah... TFcon...



    What would I say in relation to making the next show? "Don't be afraid to do something new and go your own way. It's all about change, man."

    "Be bold and have a challenge when it comes to characters for once."

    That advice is really needed with the TFP staff during some days.

    Stop "hommaging" lines from G1/the original movie. If I hear "One shall stand, one shall fall" again in any "new" Transformers fiction, I think I might explode.

    Y'know what you don't do enough? Plant Transformers. In fact, there's one good example you could use from a few years back...

    And Optimus Prime should have some fun. Let him play some hoops instead of spouting sig-able lines about duty and whatever all the time.

    Yeah, that's two things. I'm greedy.

    To the writers behind Transformers Prime:

    Putting Unicron in as the big bad for season 1 was a stupid idea. Save him for the series finale, NOT the finale to the first season.

    Um, I guess I'd say: Can we have Warpath as one of the main characters?

    That's kinda all I got.

    I've got two things to say:

    One, drop the golden age caste system/fascist Autobot dictatorship routine that Animated, IDW, and the Aligned continuity pulled. It's unnecessary and ignores what the Autobots stand for - freedom, truth, justice, that kind of thing. Save the tyranny for the Decepticons.

    Two, don't make Optimus Prime a speech-making cardboard cutout or someone with overblown compassion for the Decepticons. Have him be human in personality, with his own problems and conflicts, and have him save his compassion for the innocent.

    Don't use Optimus, don't use BB, hell, don't use any regular characters, be bold, be creative, and create something completely new and original

    Oh and don't use Unicron, Primus, and the original 13 stuff. Oh god please don't.

    I would simply tell them to change it up a bit. The TF Prime show has gotten way too predictable.

    I'm being a bit optimistic and possibly too nice. I think I like to say to the creators, staff, writers, animators, and producers a Big Thank You: for taking up the jobs that nobody wanted to do and continue them without just asking for much but just payment. For not demanding to be worshiped as gods like J.K. Rowling or Stephenie Meyer. For continuing a good line of things to come in the future for generations.

    Can you give Optimus cool Super Modes that are used in every episode that activate Burning Justice?

    Put in Waspinator, Rattrap and Cheetor. I don't give a s**t if they'd be difficult to fit into the story, they're too bloody awesome. Use your creative minds to come up with something.
