    who would want to see a comic book series where some transformers get infected with a virus (like cosmetic rust) making then turn in to "zombies" and they go around eating each other. the autobots would have to join forces with the cons to defeat them.

    would you like to see a mini series like that?

    If it was a one off thing, I would probably at least try to get ahold of it. On side note, this reminds me of the kitbash idea I had of basically a zombie-fied Decepticon, but was under the control of Megatron. Kinda like an Inferi.

    I think it would make for a good change of pace.... but it would have o be a mini series of some sort maybe around six issues to have a good story.

    Also similar is the virus on season 3 after Prime came back. Like the TF version of 28 Days Later's rage virus.

    Theres a custom merage alternators zombie thing used for zombie threads. My dad, brother, and i love zombie movies. Nothin like dead things eating people makes you say family time, but i would love that. Not sure the eating each other thing would make sence, but killing each other yes.

    Zomie Optimus: Ahhmm baga

    Ironhide: Die *shoots Optimus in the chest*

    Jazz: No you got to shot him in the head like this *Shoots primes face off*

    Prowl: 2 in the head make sure their dead (my dad made that up all by him self) *shoots prime twice in the head*

    Ultra Magnus: And that little Go bots was how Prowl saved Cybertron from Zombots

    I like the idea, definately would be worth checking out, and also, maybe add new enemies, have the transformers fight something that's not you know, more transformers.

    As long as they had a really good artist for it to bring out the fun of what would a robot look like as a zombie and as long as the writer could capture the fun factor of the cool zombie movies.

    Transformers with lots of jagged bits of metal, missing armour plating and loose wires hanging off them.

    cybertron dark skorponok is to my knowledge the only tf toy with a zombie bio:

    Awesomely powerful and incredibly intelligent, Dark Scorponok was once widely feared by Decepticons and Autobots alike, until his chassis was destroyed by Megatron. His mind and memory shattered, only partially operational and powered by the might of Unicron - some of which he managed to absorb - he hungers for a return to full functionality. Even in his partly destroyed state, his mech-venom sting and super-strong claws are a threat to all but the most powerful beings, and his return heralds a new era of fear for all who stand in his way.

    That is hilarity.

    I like this idea too. Use Dark Scorponok or maybe even Nemesis Prime. Heck throw in Bruce Campbell for good measure!
    Not only could they "eat" them but also cannibalize them much like Lockdown does in Animated.

    So sure why not we already have pirate and ninja TFs.

    Zombies literally never get old!!

    And how could I forget the barnacle possessed Prowl from TF: Anim season one? Also a zombie.

    I'd read it most certainly. The designs would be fun to see, and how the designers could show certain characteristic bits of damage and decay for each character much as Col America had half his brain chopped off, or zombie Wolverine missing an arm. Doubly interesting to see if this would carry over into alt mode. So if a car hood chested bot had a gaping hole in its chest it would transform into a car with of course a gaping hole in its hood.
