    If you had an idea for a new Transformers TV show, what would it be and who would you cast?


    My idea:

    Transformers: Dinobot Heroes (based on my fanfiction that has yet to be released.)

    Voice Cast:

    Gregg Berger - Grimlock
    Beast Mode: Velociraptor

    John DiMaggio - Slug
    Beast Mode: Triceratops

    Matt Hill - Sludge
    Beast Mode: Apatosaurus

    Sam Vincent - Snarl
    Beast Mode: Stegosaurus

    Tony Sampson - Swoop (Because Tony's cartoon voice sounds
    squawky like a Pterodactyl's. Despite his retirement, he would make a great voice for the character)
    Beast Mode: Pterodactyl

    Crispin Freeman - Magmatron (Using his Alucard voice)


    Set in the Beast Era, it takes place after the Beast Wars: The Ascending comic, and Season 1 would take place during Beast Machines Season 1.

    Episode 1: Dinobots Unite!

    Grimlock's life has been saved by his former-nemesis Magmatron (now a Maximal) from Megatron's Conversion-Freezing Virus that wiped out almost all of Cybertron. After fleeing from Cybertron, Magmatron and Grimlock eventually receive a distress signal from Maximal Swoop, who survived the virus on Cybertron and is being held prisoner by the Vehicons. Grimlock and Magmatron join forces and rescue Swoop, but then witness Slug (a.k.a. Slag) as a Predacon illegally trading dangerous weapons with Vehicons! The three heroes later get involved in battle against Predacon Slug and defeat him. While knocked out, Slug is reprogrammed into a Maximal and regains his Autobot memories. Slug decides to join Grimlock and the gang, and Magmatron decides it's time to reunite the Dinobots by setting out to find Sludge and Snarl, who were victims of the anti-conversion virus. But what they find is their dead bodies! Magmatron, Grimlock, Slug, and Swoop end up transferring their offline sparks into blank protoforms with Sludge having a new Apatosaurus beast mode, and Snarl with a Stegosaurus beast mode. The episode ends with Magmatron and the Dinobots leaving Cybertron to venture to other planets, then Grimlock shouts "Dinobots, TRANSFORM AND DESTROY!!!!!"

    End of Episode 1

    I'd want brand-new characters in a new series. No new versions of old characters, no name reuses, no old anything. ALL brand-new bots and cons(or new factions, even, but I'm not picky about that). The only way I'd like an old character even mentioned is through 'Cybertronian history", brief cameos, and related ways. Beast Wars ALMOST got the idea down, but it had to reuse an uncomfortable amount of names...

    New characters in old sub-factions would be neat too. A whole new team of Stunticons or Dinobots, for instance.

    Voice actors are irrelevant to me, as long as their voices fit their respective characters well.

    I was going to introduce new characters in Transformers: Dinobot Heroes as well. Not to mention I accidentally posted this in News. Silly me! Could anybody move this to General Discussion, please?

    I would be for that.

    Though my idea would reuse some UT era names, but a complete twist to the post war years. Animated SP kind of gave the idea of what could happen.

    Start a series long after the Great War ended. Megatron was killed in the final battle and the Matrix was destroyed to take out Megatron and several Decepticon forces.

    Orion Pax leads Cybertron into a new Golden Age, but slowly the bots that fought in the war start to fade from the picture and more power hungry bots show up. The new bots really didn't want to live up to the peace terms.

    A new war takes place on Cybertron and a Autobot commander Override leads her troops to battle against the Decepticon rebel forces of Galvatron. She later finds out the council is hiding stuff and sides with the Decepticons to fight the real threat, the power hungry Autobot government.

    Her team would feature Red Alert, Hot Shot, Evac, Clocker, Powerglide, and Armorhide.

    I would do a cartoon set during the Great War on Cybertron. It would had a constantly changing cast, new character would come and go (or die) and pretty much the only two character that would be there from begginign till the end would be Megatron and Optimus.

    To quote myself from the other thread my own continuty for the series:

    I have quite a few character and episode ideas in my head I'm yet to write them all down.

    I would watch Yggdrasil's series in a heart-beat. Easily tens times more original/idea-esque than mine :D

    Hmm, if I were to create a TF cartoon ... I'd actually try to reboot G1, with some bits and pieces thrown in from other series. One story idea I'd love to do is a Decepticon High Command, consisting of leaders from a number of other series, even the Japanese ones. But all subservient to Megatron. Voices, I'd give Peter Cullen a break from Optimus, let someone new do it. But if I use Wreck-Gar, I would beg Weird Al to do it again. Also, I'd drop any attempt at pretext and say it's the same world as GI Joe, but not do what the crossover books did.

    I don't actually have a plan for a cartoon, but I do have this concept for a Starscream/Megatron relationship. Here it be:

    I might update this post with more ideas if I get some.

    I have six new characters for my show "Transformers: Dinobot Heroes" that serve as six new additional Maximal Dinobots.


    Here they are:

    Grimstone - Styracosaurus (BW Neo Killerpunch repaint)
    Voiced by Terry Klassen (Eddy's Brother from Ed, Edd n Eddy)

    Chromedome - Pachycephalosaurus (BW Neo Hardhead repaint)
    Voiced by Michael Donovan (Phong from ReBoot)

    Blowpipe - Parasaurolophus (new mold)
    Voiced by Peter Kelamis (Rolf from Ed, Edd n Eddy)

    Landquake - Ankylosaurus (BW Neo Bazooka repaint)
    Voiced by Rob Paulsen (Gordon from Catscratch)

    Sliceback - Dimetrodon (BW Neo Sling repaint)
    Voiced by Jeff Glen Bennett (Cave Guy from Freakazoid!)

    And the sixth new Dinobot is...

    Featherhide - Archaeopteryx (Archadis repaint and female Dinobot)
    Voiced by Grey DeLisle (Frankie Foster from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends)


    Apparently, I got the idea for the first five from PCC Grimstone with Dinobots. And the names "Sliceback" and "Featherhide" were the only new names I was able to come up with.

    I'd have Optimus Prime fight Megatron on Earth.

    No seriously i'm doing that.

    That will never happen because Hasbro has to keep reusing names in order to keep the trade marks on them. You might get some new characters but there's no way they will ever do a series without at least reusing Optimus Prime and Megatron.

    These two statements contradict each other. If you care about their voices fitting their respective characters that requires caring about voice actors. You can't have voices without voice actors so they can't be irrelevant.

    I would just like one that feels almost like WFC/FOC, but more dark and dramatic, showing how war broke the friendship between Megatronus and Prime and the political side of it, with the creation of the Autobot and Decepticon teams, just as a way to give the characters a perfect origin for each one, what do you guys think?

    Actually in my last TF cartoon idea I kinda did the reverse, took a page from G1 and had Starscream killed off prior to the events of the series, but his ghost ends up in Megatron's body and during the series there's this ongoing fight for control within him. I think this was also partially inspired by this unmade Triple-Changer concept:

    Starscream's soul is still trapped in Megatron's body! (Thanks South Park, lol).

    But seriously, that's actually a good idea; there's a lot of potential for dynamic character interaction and development.

    So, who likes my idea "Transformers: Dinobot Heroes" so far? And if it were real, who would watch it on The Hub?

    I had the idea of a series without Optimus. Instead we focus on Rodimus dealing with a more RID style Megatron in his way of doing things. And searching the autobot ranks for one he thinks could be a worthy successor. Maybe it could get people to actually like him

    I really just want Scott McNeil back on Transformers reprising old roles and picking up some new ones.
