    Hmm never thought of this , im 50/50 cos the humans were the entry point for the audience , without that it may be difficult to connect with the film, but on the other hand 100% transformers and 0% humans will be epic action yet no [depth] ?

    Never going to happen. Once you lose the human aspect - the key juxtapose to how these robots are giant and can disguise themselves - you lose virtually ALL the general movie going audience. No one is going to watch three movies worth of 100% CGI where Prime isn't a truck, Bumblebee isn't a an 'awesome' camero, etc. in a confusing dark space based backdrop of a machinery planet that blends in with the robots themselves. Same can be said about a prequel set on Earth since clearly no huge battles ever took place before Prime & co. got there. All the pre-movie characters (Seekers, Soundwave, etc.) did were hide out and look around for stuff.

    I'd be happy even if they had just one film that told how the War started. Even if it was three or four hours long.

    Maybe that's what Transformers 4 can be . . . ?

    This ^^
    There would also be no need to transform (except to travel quicker) cos they're all TF's so it would be completely useless to hide.
    BRING ON A TF4 SEQUEL ON EARTH CARRYING ON FROM DOTM!!

    I just don't see the idea working.

    Not many Transformers on Earth before the first film except for a frozen Megatron and the Seekers. You kind of need Prime, Bumblebee and some other big name Autobots because that's what people would expect.

    A live action movie set on Cybertron with nothing but robot actors kind of seems like a waste of money. A film set totally on Cybertron should just be an animated movie.

    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.

    I would be all for this, since in terms of just movies it'd be exactly what I'd want, but in terms of toys, do you really want a whole line of primarily protoforms? Neither do I.

    Perhaps as a one-hour special as part of a bonus for a trilogy DVD box set, done with the quality of Prime's CGI but with the main cast of the films - i'd be up for that. Not a whole prequel trilogy though. Just an hour or so's worth of backstory and to help tie up some lose ends/blend the three together.

    I would expect it to cost over $500 million to make. No studio would ever greenlight a movie that expensive, especially a movie with no actors in it.

    Bad idea.

    I don't see a prequel trilogy working at all.
