    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.

    Make the plot more interesting and less like an even more boring version of Armada's first half.

    I always liked the idea that the Autobots could lose their base and have to be on the run 24/7 to avoid Decepticons. Like, those runaway movies with the guys going all around America, I think that could be fun.

    -Megatron becomes an Autobot.

    -Starscream is the new leader of the Decepticons.

    -Soundwave speaks.

    -Bumblebee speaks.

    -Miko returns to her homeland.

    -June Darby marries Silas.

    That's about it... for now. :)

    Nice idea. Megatron becoming an autobot is interesting.

    How about, Megatron destroys Optimus Prime and the autobots. But has a change of heart. He's deposed by his subordinates as a result. Shockwave becomes the new Decepticon commander.

    Megatron decides to recreate the autobot faction and becomes its leader, intent on living up to Optimus Prime's ideals.




    Keep listing it down. Keep the ideas flowing.

    Yes.

    Have new Autobots actually show up and stay.

    Personally, I'd like to see the producers finally have the guts to take the whole "Optimus not quite acting like himself" bit that they've only lightly touched on - joining the 'Cons while having amnesia, being more ruthless toward Megatron than normal - and take it a step up by giving him a dual/split personality; heck, if they went the full Jekyll & Hyde with him and gave him a second transformation process to boot - with a second robot AND vehicle mode, a la G1 Punch/Counterpunch and Animated Shockwave/Longarm Prime - this'd be a perfect opportunity for Hasbro to engineer a new TF: PRIME Optimus toy so that they don't have to trot out another repaint.

    Other than feeling like the show needs another new character or three this Season... I love absolutely everything the show creators are doing right now, so no other suggestions.

    Let me see:
    Bumblebee is able to talk or we bring in Goldbug to follow him around and say what Bee is saying. Just to really go out copying the R2D2 act with Prime's own C3PO as well.

    The bots and cons have a truce to finally remove Miko and send her blasting off in space into a black hole. Peace remains for rest of the episode as Prime and Megatron gets wasted by drinking too much energon.

    Introduce Hound as a survivor of a crash Autobot ship that hit Earth in the 1940's in Europe. Hound sides with the Americans takes on the form of a Army jeep. He battles against Blitzwing, who fired upon the ship he was on. Blitzwing is working with the Nazi forces and the two battle hard during the final days of the war. Hound orders the Air Force to bomb Blitzwing, in doing so sends both underground in stasis lock for 70 years. The entire details of the events is given to the United States Army and one person is charged to keep the information hidden from the public, Allen Fowler, the grandfather of William Fowler. Explaing why Fowler was place to work with Prime's team for the United States.

    William Fowler later finds the information in one of the old boxes his grandfather had and informs Prime about it. The Autobots discover the location and recover Hound and Rathcet repairs the damage and brings him online. Though they are unable to find this other bot he was fighting against. Soundwave watches the events through Lazerbeak and reports to Megatron about what is taking place. Dreadwing is order to go down and sees a purple object under rocks, he removes the rocks and uncovers Blitzwing.

    General amnesia. All Transformers' heads at the same time - chaos and fun.
    Or something like Star Trek's "Naked Now". Will see, how equal they are.

    Doesn't really fit this thread, but as far as I see, it is not far from "what would you want" clone threads.

    And yes, the Autobots' base is supposed to be assaulted one day. It must happen: this is Justice.
