    You can pick the era/series you want. The question is simple: the nine different Lantern Corps rings land on Cybertron and detect life, flying out to grab bearers. Who gets what ring?

    For those that don't know, the rings are (starting from one extreme to the other):

    Black Lantern Ring: Death. The one who wears this ring isn't merely a killer... they are obsessed with the dead. They also must die to wield the ring but can kill themselves seconds before receiving the ring... or be dead already. Known bearer: Black Hand, who murdered his own family and then himself to wear the ring.

    Red Lantern Ring: Rage. Selects one with great rage in their heart. These rings, however, tend to seek out victims rather than those that cause violence... but victims with great rage and hate for their fate. A Red Lantern's heart (or, for a transformer, their fuel system) stops beating when they receive the ring and their 'blood' is replaced with molten ring energy. Known bearers: Dex-Star, a cat from Earth who witness his owner brutally murdered; Bleez, a princess who was raped and mutilated; Atrocious, whose entire family and species were killed in a genocide.

    Orange Lantern Ring: Greed. While normally the Corps is made up of victims absorbed by the head of the Orange Lanterns, there have been orange rings before so we are assuming this ring is separate from Larfleeze. Selects one who allows their need to have something dominate all other concerns. An Orange Lantern Ring Wielder is never satisfied and always wants more. Known bearers: Larfleeze, an alien thief who absorbed any that come near him and turns them into his construct slaves; Lex Luthor

    Yellow Lantern/Sinestro Corp Ring: Fear. Selects those that inspire great fear. They tend to be those that inspire fear in ALL, not just the wicked or the innocent. A Yellow/Sinstro Corps Lantern tend to be the boogeymen of their worlds and also fear little to nothing, as part of the 'training' for one is to be placed in a cocoon that forces you to face your worst fear. Known bearers: Sinstro, once the greatest Green Lantern and now their most feared enemy; Kryb, a murderer who hunts down pregnant mothers, rips their children from them, kills them, and then traps the babies forever; Numerous serial killers and psychopaths

    Green Lantern Ring: Willpower. Selects those who can 'overcome great fear' and who fight to protect others. Tend to select heroes (and a few anti-heroes) who seek to protect the innocent. They are in the middle of the emotional spectrum and thus can be seen as balanced. Most are great leaders. Known Bearers: Hal Jordon, Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, John Stewart

    Blue Lantern Ring: Hope. Selects those that, through determination and strong spirits, keep hope alive for themselves and others. The 'warrior monks' of the universe, they are the most powerful of the ringbearers... but only if a Green Lantern is nearby. If not, they are the weakest (for hope is strongest when there is a will to make it so). Known bearers: Saint Walker, an alien who journeyed to find a savior and lost his family in the journey... only to realize HE was the savoir.

    Indigo Tribe Ring: Compassion. The strangest of the Corps, the Tribe Ring actually seeks out those who show the LEAST compassion. The Ring brainwashes the bearer, forcing them to feel what they did to others. Some become mindless followers, while others create a new persona, one with the same determination as their old selves but now fueled by calm need to help. Known bearers: Indigo-1, a serial killer who murdered Abin Sur's child and thus was punished with the ring and made leader of the Tribe.

    Star Sapphire Ring: Love. Two different types of people can become Star Sapphires. The first are those who have 'holes in their heart'. IE who have suffered loss. The second are those who hold great love in their heart; in other words those that 'love the world'. Known Bearers: Carol Ferris, Wonder Woman

    White Lantern Corps: Life. Selects those that either represent all emotions in the world or life itself. Also attracted to those that were once dead and live again. Can resurrect the dead to make them a bearer. Known beaers: Swamp Thing, Kyle Rayner, Superman



    I'm interested who you guys pick... as for me?


    Black- Nova Prime
    Red- Nickel or Waspinator
    Orange- Starscream
    Yellow- Tarn
    Green- Optimus Prime or Ultra Magnus
    Blue- Tailgate
    Indigo- Overlord
    Pink- Nautica or Windblade
    White- This is the hardest one but I'd say Bumblebee.

    My take using Beast Wars characters.

    Black/Death: Megatron
    He cares very little about his own troops, tried to alter known time, and nearly brought the end of Transformer life on Cybertron. He met his end, but a black ring would easily revive a being so vile.

    Red/Rage: Depth Charge
    The only survivor of colony Omicron, he hated Protoform X/Rampage with a passion. A perfect new addition for the Red Lanterns.

    Orange/Greed: Terrorsaur
    Like the Decepticon Starscream, he wanted to become leader and craved power.

    Yellow/Fear - Rampage
    A being that has killed scores prior to his capture and is feared by many.

    Green/Willpower: Dinobot
    A noble warrior that fought the entire Predacon team to save others.

    Blue/Hope: Cheetor
    A young bot that is often cheerful and optimistic.

    Indigo/Compassion: Tarantulas
    He's been known to harm his own comrades and tried to blow up the Ark. A perfect choice for the Tribe Ring to select, given his lack of compassion.

    Pink/Love: Tigatron
    He loves the planet tremendously and will fight those that would harm it.

    White/Life: Optimus Primal
    He has given his life twice to save two planets and helped to prevent the destruction of known time.

    I like these picks a lot too. I might sub out Sentinel Prime with Scourge or Nemesis Prime for Black. I'm not a big Hot Rod fan but I think he or Windblade would be good for green. I think compassion should go to Soundwave, Hound or Ratchet. Soundwave carried Megatron back to the shuttle after his fight with Prime, whereas he could have just left him on the battlefield. Hound seems to care about nature and the environment, that's elements of compassion right? And Ratchet would heal a Decepticon because he knows that's the right thing to do. Optimus is totally white/life.

    This is perfect for Beast Wars. Honestly, not a thing I would change

    Black: Ironhide. From what I remember of the Black Lanterns, they weren't so much people revived as corpses with simulcrums of their former personalities enslaved to the black light's power and designed to kill. Given how iconic Ironhide was and the violent way he met his end, he'd be a fantastic candidate for the ring to infect and begin it's cycle of evil anew.

    RED: Sludge. I know people's thoughts jump to Grimlock here, but Sludge's profile all but screams he's a fountain of anger. Failing that, maybe Brawl from the Combaticons?

    Blue: Gonna go off the beaten path here and give this to Optimus Prime. Yes he's got the willpower, but how often have the characters been revived from the brink of defeat by his mere presence? Heck he almost singlehandedly broke the siege on Autobot City in the movie. If that doesn't say "inspires great hope," I don't know what does. Plus he could totally offset the failing of the blue ring.

    Yellow: Megatron. The old slag maker himself. A character so monstrous he became the boogeyman of an entire incarnation of the franchise (Animated). There are other characters with more firepower, some that are smarter, and a few with more bloodlust, but nobody has ever combined those traits into a more fearsome package.

    Green: Hound. What can I say, it saves on spandex... I'm kidding. This one goes to Bumblebee. One of the smallest and least offensively powerful of the TFs, he never the less is willing to go toe to toe with any enemy and face any situation. Love or hate his current incarnation, you can't deny the kid never knows when to give up.

    Orange: Any of the Insecticons. Such gluttonous, self-centered beings would attract the Orange Light like a moth to a flame. Given their already established ability to generate hordes of themselves, they might just become a bigger problem than the Black Lanterns.

    Pink: Metroplex. Guy strikes me as having a spark big enough for a whole world.

    Indigo: Shockwave. If anyone needed a lesson in compassion, it's Mr. Logical. Of course there's also always Sunstreaker.

    White: not sure who would fit here, so I'll go with Primus.
