    It would be awesome, but it wouldn't work. Remember, cartoons are for kids first, and kids aren't going to buy Optimus as a villain and Megs as a hero. I wouldn't have back in the 80s

    I think it would be lame, as it would require the audience to know a previous show / cast of characters just to get the concept. I could see it happening maybe as a single episode or multi-part story, but even then, its something that's been done to death on tv.

    I think it'd be lame, because I don't think kids want a bad guy Optimus Prime or a good guy Megatron. As a movie? Sure, whatever.

    That's my thoughts as well. It's more likely to be a "two worlds collide" story in a regular series than a full series dedicated to the concept, I think.

    I guess it would be a good DVD movie, but that's as far as I can see it.

    Hasbro wouldn't want to produce a cartoon that pretty much confuses (new) fans with everything they've done before. Imagine new fans seeing the show and forever feeling Optimus Prime is evil, and Megatron is the hero..then how are Hasbro going to sell anything to them afterwards, since it will all be 'in reverse' to those people?

    I agree that it would be fun as a one-off. I like the concept, even if it's been overdone. It works, especially for something like Transformers.

    I do not think it would be successful the OP and Autobots are good and Megs and the Cons are evil is far to ingrained to be able to make a flip of those roles believable and it would confuse the hell out of most kids and that alone would be a fail as they buy the majority of the figures.

    Agree, I think Hasbro would have a hard time selling Heroic Decepticons and Evil Autobots.

    Apparently there was a Shattered Glass style episode planned for TFA Season 4, but as a full show, nah, Shattered Glass wouldn't work. Kids already recognize Optimus as a good guy, and Megatron as a bad guy. Switching it around would confuse too many people.

    A full shattered glass series would be too wacky for even the tfwiki to handle.
