    I was thinking now would be the perfect time to bring in Unicron as the new threat. Once he realizes Cybertron is now a wasteland and the matrix is gone, he sends Scourge and Cyclonus track down it's location. Once they discover it's on Earth, have them retrieve Megatron's body so Unicron can resurrect him as Galvatron to assist in getting the Matrix.

    BAM! We have new villains, we have a new evil plot, and a new group of bad guys. What do you think? Yes? No?


    EDIT: Doh, didn't mean to type "storyline" in the title twice.

    No. Its way too much like the 86 film. Not to mention Megatron was already revived and it'd be pretty damn repetitive.

    Then who would you suggest as the next movie's main villain? Megatron's dead. Shockwave's dead. What other decepticon is well-known enough to be the next movie's villain?

    Michael Bay is out, not to say he couldn't come back, but I don't see it happening. That said, someone less experienced with this type of film will come in and do a fourth one. This scares me a bit, as I see Paramount saying, "just do it and put something out there, you know it is going to makes lots of money anyway, regardless of quality". In that case, I can see them doing the '86 movie all over again. It will drag enough of the older fans back in just to check it out, and the younger fans will be curious as well.

    I hope I am wrong though and if so, I can see them going in a whole new direction to be honest. They will always carry over a few of the popular characters, but I hope they develop new ones that take a whole new scope of things.


    EDIT* - A prequal is actually a good idea, but I hope its done right.

    I would love for them to add to this continuation, but a reboot would probably be best for the series

    I love bayformers, but unless you guys are confterable with unicron being atleast as big as devastator, i would feel weird, so i just prefer a remake of bayformers.

    Galvatron just not as a ressurected MEGS... have him be the 1 decepticon to ever challenge Megatron, so he was banned from Cybertron and is angry about its destruction

    Cyclonus as his only loyal follower

    I really feel Shockwave needs to be revived or come back

    introduce Lockdown- great character

    & then a weapon X type character (BW rampage)

    But a prequel would be too confusing when they're all gray protoforms.

    Ehhh, I think that would deviate a little too much from TF lore. Even my 11yo knows Galvatron was once Megatron.

    I only thought of unicron when there was the whole
    "Black Hole" sucking cybertron back through.
    I thought that could link to the next movie.

    Easy. Galvatron. Galvatron originally was intended to just be an ambitious minion of Megatron until the '86 movie crew decided to go the reformat route.

    Galvatron can be one of the few Decepticons that survived or was in deep space during the events of DOTM. He, Cyclonus, Dirge, and his crew are on a new mission to get revenge on earth AND the autobots by discovering and reviving the ancient twin planet to cybertron: Unicron. They reboot Unicron and tell him about the death of his brother at the hands of Optimus Prime and the human vile on a planet called earth. Unicron, hell-bent on avenging the death of cybertron AND to feed to recharge himself, offers himself as a new homeworld to the Decepticons and heads off to destroy Earth and Autobots.

    Galvatron & company fly ahead with shards of dark energon (provided by Unicron) and create an army of "zombiecons" from the scrapyards where the deceased cybertronians were placed.

    At the end, Prime must release the power of the Matrix, unleashing it's TRUE origin and power: The Matrix was forged from the energon core of Cybertron, and is a polar opposite of the dark-energon that flows through Unicron. Prime sacrifices himself to merge the Matrix into Unicron's core, causing Unicron to implode in earth's orbit. The remaining autobots grieve the loss of their leader. A young autobot named Rodimus, away from the group, looks up at the stars in mourning. He sees a shooting star hit near his location. He discovers the star is actually the Matrix.... to be continued.

    Except for the 80s comics where time travel allowed them both to exist at once, and the IDW comics where he is an entirely different character. My point is, it wouldn't be without precedent. And who really cares if it goes with tradition anyway? I don't know how many times this can be said, the movies aren't supposed to be rehashed G1.


    None of this really matters though since DOTM is the end.

    They could also utilize another villians, like:

    -Straxus
    -Liege Maximo ( as a former fallen Prime which the Primes had to fight before The Fallen's betrayal or something like that).
    -The Quintessons (with an explanation on the Allspark's origin).
