I was just thinking that I think it would be fun if there was a signficant change to the way things are; the status quo of the autobots to be exact. -I think it would be fun if the Quintessons begin taking over the bodies/replacing government leaders. The Autobots find out and are labeled as threats by the governments. -The autobots are chased away. Their base is blown up and they are forced take refuge under a private organization or company. -I also think it would be fun if the autobots suffer a rebellion. For example, after the War for Cybertron, the autobots gathered by by a powerful autobot who decides to claim the title of Prime by force. They become an armada. So when they reach earth, they no longer consider Optimus their supreme commander. Optimus is deposed or willingly gives up leadership and the only one who stand by him are a few others. -Another idea is that the current team of autobots split up, becoming leaders of their own teams. Hence Optimus gets himself a new squad of autobots. All of whom are newbies. -Then there's also the idea of the autobot and decepticon factions being obliterated by an outside force, with Megatron disappearing. This forces its remnants to unite under Optimus Prime. -Then I was thinking, why not have the earth be conquered or nuked by an alien race that wishes to annihilate humans and take the earth for its unlimited supply of Dark Energon. Instead of tiny teams, Optimus and humans(GI Joe, Mech, remnants of countries etc.) must forge an entire army to fight back against the alien invaders. Think of it like Independence Day or Battle for LA on steroids. -Then there's the idea that thousands upon thousands of Cybertronians in desperation decide to migrate to earth. Similar to what happened in the movie district 9. And it becomes Optimus' and Jack's duty to make sure that peace remains between humans and Transformers. -Of course theres' also the idea of Optimus Prime and a new team of autobots leaving earth to fight an interstellar war against Violen Jiger. -Earth is blown to smithereens due the Cybertronian war. Optimus makes it his mission to find a new home for both Cybertronians and humans, ala Battlestar Galactica. And maybe as icing, they should blow up Cybertron. After all it happened in the movie. It also throws the future plans of the autobots out the window. So, how would you shake up the Transformers Prime universe? How would you change the status quo? What are the ways? List them down.
