    As a series of one-shot What Ifs? Sure, that'd be fun to see. As a continuation of the existing Deviations story? ...please, no.

    The problem was that the issue was too rushed,no junkions,shockwave was nowhere to be seen,unicron attacking cybertron and no one was fighting back,a lot of hot-rod hate,megatron easily killed when before he survived a starship explosion full of energon cubes in the ultimate doom episode and so on.

    I would like to see a series of what if stories. For example what if the Autobots never woke up in1984?

    That would be IDW's main universe. They never did the standard crash-and-wake-up-4-million-years-later thing.

    I was thinking that a what if series could cover all of the TF timelines.

    Apart from Hearts of Steel which was a kind of What If the Transformers woke up during the industrial revolution.

    I really wish they would have continued the story beyond infestation. There was so much potential about having the Autobots and Decepticons being around doing such points like the Spanish-American War or World War I.

    What if..... TF Animated actually continued. That's about the only "deviation" from established events I care to see and only if Isenberg writes it.

    I am surprised that Hasbro has not authorized an official season 4 comic.

    Deviations was the worst comic to come out last year. It was even worse than Dawn of Predacus. And maybe as bad as Combiner Wars. 2016 was a bad year for TF fiction.

    Which is a fault of the writer, not the concept. In the right hands, the concept would work well.

    Exactly. The writer of this one issue just put Optimus into everything. The concept in general can work. I still want to see something along the lines of "What if Starscream's shot in MTMTE Part One had not cause the Autobots to be revived." and ideas like that.

    What if Megatron won the Beast Wars?

    No. Beast Machines happened because the Maximals won the Beast Wars, captured the defeated Megatron and took him back to Cybertron. I'm talking about what if Megatron succeeded in destroying Optimus Prime in the Ark.

    Said it once or twice before on these forums but I think a shattered glass beast machines would be fascinating so a deviations issue which turned the central concepts and morals of beast machines upside down I would definetly read even if it eventually sucked

    Shattered Glass Beast Machines.

    ...So what, Primal in Megatron's place as a religious fanatic trying to bring the Great Upgrade to the masses, while Megatron and his Heroic band of Cybernetic Predacons battle against the techno-organic monstrosities Primal's unleashed?

    IDW's 'what if they never fall asleep.' 'What if they fall asleep and don't wake up,' would be a whole different one!
