I know these "[someone] for TF4" threads are getting excessive and sometimes even boring, but hear me out on this: What about more "Obscure"-Villains for TF4? Enough of Megatron, we had three movies of him, I say we now aim for the less-known fellows. For instance... Lord Straxus, the brutal tyrant with a penchant for throwing people on smelting pools, brutal like Megatron, yet more sophisticated and political while remaining a ruthless dictator. Imagine him on the gritty Movie-verse design, standing tall with his hammer/axe/pickaxe, voiced by James Earl Jones [or Ken Page, if they can't afford Jones], leading an army of loyal followers. He's not patriotic as Megatron, nor he gives a damn about his planet, he wants the entire Universe on the palm of his hand. Nothing else. But of course, if "polticial" villains are tiring you, then what about.. Overlord, the main villain of Last Stand of the Wreckers. As the leader of the Prison known as Garrus-9, Overlord has no objective other than bringing the slaugther to the next level, he cares not for conquer, politics, or the survival of his race [on the contrary], he wants chaos to reign free, he is Chaotic Evil. Yet, he is polite and soft-spoken while he takes off your entrails with his bare hands. It's easy to picture him towering over everyone while he slaugthers everything on his path with a subtle smile, voiced by Malcom McDowell. But if it's honour and pride you're looking for, worry not, we also have... Bludgeon, a prideful warrior with a penchant for the supernatural, he seeks glory in battle through the way of the sword, he holds a unshakeable belief in the Cybertronian myths while he seeks his glory, a surprisingly religious fellow. I like to imagine him lecturing Optimus about the true meaning of honor, voiced by Mark Strong. But of course, some people just want to see the Decepticons again, then just replace Megatron with... Ratbat, probably the most obscure fellow of this list, obsessed with efficiency, he's like a madman CEO, always on a tight schedule, seeking the best for the Decepticon cause, a worthy successor of Megatrn's title. I say go wild with the concept of a bat-tf, make him a nightmarish Dracula-esque robot, voiced by Gary Oldman. BUT, If one needs a schemer... Remember that thing about Ratbat being the most obscure? I lied. This guy, right here, he isn't even a main villain, he is a background character who forms Devastator in G1 and FOC. Hear me out: He's a mastermind of strategies, who prefers to play people like pawns to achieve his goals instead of brute strength, but when his plans go wrong, he flies into mindless rage, showing the full extent of his brute strength. Prime-material [ba-dum-tsh] for a movie villain right there, voiced by Jeremy Irons. However, if philosophical stories and mindgames are your thing, we have.. Mindwipe. He [literally] plays with other's minds, he can trap you on your own thoughts, torture your mind until you turn mad, he seeks only to experiment on his subject's minds. We could have a really nice Inception-like movie with him, dream battles and shit. There's also a Thunderwing guy, but I don't know much about him. So guys, don't we have a HORDE of possibilities to play out? Why stay bound to the same old villain for FOUR MOVIES in a roll? Bring a new guy, all can make very interesting stories.
