I was just thinking after recent speculation that it might not be impossible for Transformers : Animated to get a 4th series sometime. Now Hasbro has it's own TV channel I can see it might be really interesting and worthwhile if they could make some sort of adjunts to the existing shows made in the same style as the original shows (more or less) Here's some examples. 1) Transformers Generation One - it could have extra shows made in the same style that fit in between season 2 & 3 - you can throw almost anything you like in there and it's a great marketing tool for Hasbro to sell Generation 1 reissues off. I think the best idea would be a few one shot straight to DVD like shows. that fill in specific story gaps - you could have a pre-earth story, and a history of the Combiners story, you could introduce Pretenders or Micromasters or fill in some of the missing time between Season 2 & 3. 2) Beast Wars : Could have the missing extended episode made that explains Dinobot II but could also be slotted in so you get so see more of Dragon Megatron and maybe even add some suggestions that G1 Megatron's spark was Driving Beast Megatron crazy. Alternatively simply make the Beast Wars Comics adapted into a Cartoon series (limited run) but perhaps designed to fit into a reissue of Beast Wars toys say around 2015-2016. 3) Beast Machines could evolve into Transtech as a say a 6 part special that is loosly based on the Transtech comic. but there could also be a special episode that slots between the time gap of Beast Wars & Beast Machines mainly about how Megatron takes over and his mental decay. This would work really well as you can throw the kitchen sink at it put all the factions in it and flesh out characters who never got any regard. as well as draw more of the Primus mythos into it that is hinted at a lot in Beast Wars and partially mucked up in Beast Machines. 4) Transformers Cybertron could become - Transformers Cybertron : Galaxy Force - it would be an expansion of the last few minutes of the last episode with dead characters returning some dimensional travel and lots of Signal Lancer ! It could also fix some of the weirder aspects of Cybertron retrospectively where needed and show us more of the Beast Planet & Speedia. And if they really went for it introduce the other worlds that were canned from the show like the steam punk industrial one. Even if it was a limited series or a one off i'd love to see something that pushed out the steam punk idea for Transformers. 5) Original one off concepts - like Transformers in World War II (something loads of people love the concept of) but feel Hasbro might be to scared to do. If it's on their own channel then they can do what they like without scaring anyone off - I'm sure it would be hideously controversial - but I have a feeling that when World war II is no longer in living Memory people might calm down a bit about it - something to consider for 2039 ? (boy don't I think ahead -laugh - well how about 2014) Anyway the idea is are those shows worth making sequels and side stories too in some form as a way to continue to market them. The age of Unicron Trilogy kids is now at an age where they are worth selling things to as Adults and some may be having young kids of their own if not already then soon... I'm sure they'd love to see Armada/Energon Unicron beating up on Transformers Cybertron Primus for example. So if there's people to whom Beast Era or Unicron Trilogy is their G1 - then why not give them the content the toys and the like that Generation One as a fandom gets already through comics, and toys etc...? what ideas do you feel would work and what format could they take ?
