    Wouldn’t that be AWESOME! :bay 

    Okay, seriously... Although I’d like to see more aerial Transformers (Springer, Powerglide, etc), I think that the fourth film should provide more attention to the aquatic areas – not necessarily the seas, but locations like lakes, rivers, or (if we’re talking urban locations) the sewers.

    Thus the Seacons, a faction of nautical Decepticons, should make an appearance in the fourth film. Most people, including myself, want the Combaticon military vehicles for TF4, but MBay has already featured military vehicles (Brawl, Bonecrusher and Devcon) and is seen to be the type to introduce something new and fresh, so he might go for a new battle. They also represent a new type of Decepticon: a Transformer that becomes an animal (previously no Transformer had taken an animal alternate mode before). He has also said he has dreamed of featuring a battleship/carrier Transformer, and BATTLESHIP has provided a prototype for perfecting...

    A possible obstacle is that to combat the Seacons, there aren’t many nautical Autobots:
    - the hovercraft Sea Spray, who got “remodelled” for ROTF (Sea Spray - Transformers Wiki)
    - the littoral combat ship Depthcharge (Depthcharge - Transformers Wiki), which actually featured in concept art but was cast out
    - the battleship Broadside (Broadside (G1) - Transformers Wiki), who would admittedly be great to see.
    Most of them would be great in large-scale naval battles (oceans), but nothing at close-range (rivers/lakes), and the Seacons excel at all ranges of water combat.

    Still, hopefully something will come out of involving naval Autobots/Decepticons...

    Besides, it’d make an awesome Easter egg wouldn’t it? The Seacon leader Snaptrap was a turtle in G1...

    I would very much like to see how the Seacons and Piranacon would translate into live-action.

    Wait, if there's a water battle in TF4, then wouldn't it be like Battleship since the people are fighting aliens.......on water........and the Transformers......are aliens?

    But the aliens are not robots and can't transform themselves in that battleship movie.

    Would the new Ninja Turtles movie effect the coming of TF4?

    “Would the new Ninja Turtles movie effect the coming of TF4?”
    I don’t really think so.

    But directors are known for casting elements from their past work into their films:
    - the first film mentioned Freddy Kruger, of the MBay production A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
    - the Twins were a homage to BAD BOYS, including the ice cream truck
    - DOTM’s highway battle with the was a homage to THE ISLAND (it practically recycled some footage)

    It’d be nice that, if the Seacons appeared, their leader Snaptrap (or Halfshell or Turtler or whatever name you’d like) would be a ninja warrior turtle bot.
