So I was watching the Road Warrior on television tonight, and while watching the busted, dirty, and armoured vehicles in the movie, it made me think of something; a Transformers series focusing on apocalyptic-style vehicles in an urban wasteland would be pretty boss. To me anyway... Just think of it! Hasbro has done modern settings with realistic vehicles quite a few times (early G1, Classics, the upcoming film), and MANY times has created a futuristic, clean society with far-out vehicles promoting evolving societal designs (latter G1, Armada, Energon, Cybertron). But what about a Transformers series that doesn't look rosy, one that doesn't look inviting. I'd like a series with Autobots and Decepticons trapped on a post-apocalyptic world where they fight not to just survive their ongoing war, but to try and survive with the bare necessities, like scavenging fuel and parts. I'd like vehicle-modes with rust, dirt, and mismatched parts (tank treads on a car, missle racks on the back, huge grills on the front, that sort of thing). The scene in the movie where Mel Gibson's character races a transport truck back to the camp inspired me to think of Prime, as the truck was huge and hulking, but covered in rust, dirt, and bent grinding metal. I think a Prime, not in the traditional clean blue and red, but in darker, dirtier colours, would look pretty snazzy, with blacks and browns, dirt and rust, a truck mode that creaks and groans as it moves, and huge front grills to better ram things. I don't know, something like this appeals to me. While obviously not a new concept (in fact it's a little overplayed), I think it'd be something fresh for Transformers. It'd allow Hasbro to get back to the grittier aspects of earlier shows (like Beast Wars and Beast Machines) anyway. Maybe I'm just crazy and its a dumb idea, but I thought I'd contribute. Enjoy!
