Instead of a sequel, how about a prequel?

    I thought this up, and shared it on my Sentinel Prime page on Facebook
    Sentinel Prime | Facebook if you're interested.
    But thats not important, I thought about a prequel, instead of a sequel.

    Movie starts with Sentinel Prime training Optimus (Not yet a Prime)
    Sentinel is like a Sensei, Optimus is a student.
    He teaches Optimus battle techniques, and how freedom is the right of all.
    ~3 years later~
    War.
    Autobots vs. Decepticons
    Sentinel is fighting besides Optimus
    ~War progresses~
    Sentinel realizes that Cybertron can't go much longer, and they must somehow rebuild their race
    ~Designs the pillar~
    He meets up with Megatron, and explains to him about the Pillars
    Sentinel suggests a truce, only to keep the race alive.
    Sentinel then explains to Optimus the situation, and how they must get the pillars off Cybertron, as they are useful, and may help them rebuild their planet elsewhere
    Optimus Prime suggest the Ark, the best way out
    Sentinel knows he must leave Cybertron
    Optimus decides to respect Sentinel teachings, and to prove himself a true warrior
    He stays behind and continues fighting for whats right, and for freedom
    Sentinel leaves Optimus with one last message
    "Freedom, is the right of all living lifeforms"
    "Remember this my student, you have proven yourself worthy"
    "You, are my greatest"
    ~Sentinel boards the Ark with Autobot troops~
    *He takes one glance at Megatron*
    *He nods at Megatron*
    ~Movie Ends~

    Thats my story.
    What do you think?

    Actually yes he does. Hes heavily involved in a lot of things. Like the translation of the movie into other languages. Nelson has always been right.

    What Nelson says though is that the tie in media has nothing to do with the story of the movies.

    A prequel wouldn't make any money.

    He said so in a thread about Dino's name being Mirage possibly in the other languages.

    They're never gonna make a live action film set on Cybertron. What the hell could they even film? It would all be CGI and green screen. An animated film maybe, but not live action.

    I'll repeat my post from a similar thread:

    It is an objectively awful idea. Prequels in general rarely work (X-Men:FC being the only exception I can think of right now), and if you think people are having problems with the designs looking all similar now, not to mention maintaining that degree of CGI would probably put the price tag into the 450+ million range...

    Plus, do we REALLY want a line of all cybertronian mode toys? The movies haven't had a good track record in regards to those.

    Stupid idea, let's never bring it up again.

    Been discussed already. I wouldn't be interested in a prequel. The "pre-Earth" bots all look samey and dull. And you need the human interaction (arguably less of it!) to get the general public to spend the dosh.

    Yah,agree that the "pre-Earth" bots all look dull & ugly but can't say for Dinobots because they belong to pre historic
