    Suppose you won the lottery in let's say the neighborhood of something ludicrous like 347 million. Would you try your hand at funding and or producing a live action series as mentioned in a previous thread? How about another movie perhaps where Bay left off? What about a stand alone movie thereby developing and scripting as you see fit?

    OOps maybe this should have been in the movie forum. Wasn't sure seeing how the nature of this thread is hypothetical. My bad...maybe.

    Nope, because sadly what most fans want the general public would not. I'd be more apt to finance another Firefly/Serenity movie and just let Whedon do his thing.

    I'd invest in having IDW (or whoever) make a new series of "More Than Meets The Eye" trade paperbacks that feature the G1 cast of characters depicted in both their Earth and Cybertronian (ie: War Within) designs, each of which drawn & designed 100% by Don Figueroa. That's my big idea.

    And if possible, I'd also provide a hefty financial incentive to relaunch the War Within / Stormbringer series.

    I'd start TFW2005.TV and have nothing but half-naked women talk about Transformers and how cool they and then Tony Bacala would burst out of the background and be like "Bitch!" and they'd dance-off to his remixes.

    First thing I'd do with the money is buy an MISB G1 Overlord. :D 

    As for a movie, hey, I'd go for it. I've long had a concept for a reboot floating around in my head, and would love to see it realized. Plus, I know I'll have more than enough money left over after the show's completed - not including any profit I'll make. ;)

    fuck that noise...i would buy or get recreated the master molds to the following transformers....Black Zarak/Scorponok, Fortress Maximus...Shockwave g1 and start churning out reissue TF's and selling them to the world market...fuck copy rights..pick a country like cuba where there is no extradition treaty and sit back and enjoy your money that you rake in off the TF fandom that would be eternally grateful to get TF's that hasbro /takara never intend on selling again...

    I would buy TFs until my room couldn't hold them all. Alternators, MPs, Botcon, mmmmm. :drool: 

    That being said, I think we do Kickback's idea, but remove the swearing and nudity.

    What if we ALL won the lottery?

    Take the money and build a mansion to live in for the rest of my life, in comfort.

    Oh, and the mansion transforms. Or something.

    Chances are I'd do nothing TF related other than buy more toys, and perhaps donate to Hasbro if they're struggling with a line I like. The majority of it would go towards buying a graveyard mansion ala Fable 2 and then live the quiet life. I know, I have no vision. I just want a graveyard, toys and internet. :(

    I'd buy a swimming pool and fill it with beer. And then slurp at it with a long straw.

    Ooh - or sit at the bottom of the deep end and drink it all through a snorkel. :p

    I would donate as much of the money as needed to Hasbro in order to guarantee that every single Transformer from Animated gets a toy - from Omega Supreme to third generic Autobot from the left.

    I'd first use it to pay off college and complete my collection. I'd then give Hasbro the some money for them to make a IDW Sentinel Prime figure (I'd die happy if I had a figure of THAT!).
