    1. Fembot. Since when do Transformers turn into Humans? How can they simulate skin, hair, flirts and have sex needs? Felt like Species mating with Terminatrix.

    2. Tiny worm robots that enter your mouth and come out of your nose. Also, beebots? That belong to The Matrix.

    3. Aging bots, ie, Jetfire with a Cane and BEARD!

    4. Retarded looking bots, ie, the Twins. Aren't they supposed to be funny without looking retarded? Maybe i'm wrong but all Transformers are cool looking and no golden rabit teeth.

    5. Vomibot: melting and merging metals? That's Terminator 2.

    I'm not picky :)

    Well the number 3 is also answered if you have seen the 86 movie. Kup is an old robot. So it seems aging is something that affects them.

    No, not ALL Transformers are cool looking, there's been plenty of weird or dorky looking ones in all of the previous series.

    Yes I suppose we could eschew new concepts in the Transformers universe like semi sentient ainmalistic drones, and biological probes (the only two new things you listed, given that everything else you branded "NOT Transformers" has been covered by Transformers in the last 25 odd years) and continue reproducing G1 for several decades.

    But I'm glad we chose not to.

    EDIT: In my tired state I forgot to mention that Ravage's drone is akin to BW's Skorponok's Bee Drone, and liquid metal morphing has been used for protoforms in most TF fiction since Beast Wars.

    So really the only leg you've got left to stand on is the nasal probe.

    Rattrap had mouse teeth in robot form. Dinobot and Unicron had sharp teeth too.

    The Pretenders were actually created BEFORE the Terminators. And she didn't really had sex needs. She was just manipulating her target.

    Insecticons?

    Transformers have peculiarities that remind of human traits, like Mudflap's "goatee". That's why Jetfire had a "beard". And he was so Energon-dry that he couldn't even stand without his awesome Caxe.

    Opinion...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall the insecticons combining in mass to form skinny one eyed bots. Although, this was one of my favorite parts. The sounds are awesome.

    those weren't insecticons I think he was referring to the little bug that discovered Sam and Mikaela in Egypt.

    Nanobots, they've been mentioned in TFs before.



    Plus, they're basically REALLY tiny combiners.


    And everything you've listed has been in Transformers before, most in G1.

    See, you do learn something new everyday. Thanks for the correction.
    Oh and by the way they would make cool little figures. If they came in a pack of ten or something. Just a random thought...carry on.
