Hi there! I was reflecting on the overall Transformers universe and began to wonder about the lasting impact the films will have on the larger picture. We all know that the BB preview shot from TF: Prime shows some kind of Movie influence, but say in...5 years? 10 years? What things have the movies permanently grafted onto Transformers as a legacy? The 86 movie gave us Unicron, Galvatron, Rodimus and more. Will Prime always have flames? Will Bumblebee be forever silenced? Will the Fallen always lurk in the shadows, threatening a return? Will the main human now be Sam forevermore? Will the Decepticons now always have a more monstrous appearance and have gross slimy technology? Will NEST now be a permanent addition? Will Barricade and Blackout be Decepticon regulars? Will Transformers always be able to scan on sight? It's fun to consider...but only time will tell.
