    Hey everyone. As you all know, Transformers Zone debuted in 1990 but it never finished. Do you think there should be a remake of this series?

    I watched a bit of it ages ago, but don't even remember it. What was the main focus of the story, the continuity etc. And let's say it continued or was remade, what direction would it go in and who would the main characters?

    Was this the one where the combiners were the main characters? Like they were permabonded?

    It's cold and impersonal, and no friend of mine.
    Actually the captions are hilarious.

    And I like hearing from people who have watched the show, rather than read an encyclopedia Transformica.

    I use TFwiki all the time for some stuff if I'm writing, but I'd rather hear people's opinions about the shows, the same way in real life if I'm talking with someone and not sure what they are talking about, I just ask them to clarify rather than walk away and pick up a dictionary or encyclopedia.

    I haven't seen Zone, so I guess I would have to see it in order for me to say whether it should be remade or not.

    No. It's among the worst TF Fiction ever (IMHO, obviously). It's really quite terrible on every level. Even a 26 episode retelling wouldn't help without changing it so much that it's not even Zone anymore.

    I know. I want that too. Something like that happened w/ Gundam. I believe it was Unicron.

    I'd rather it be redone and maybe address some of the more glaring issues with it. It could be good, just needs work put into it.

    id like to see the basic idea continued but with a more traditional transformers take on things. Bring in some g1 characters that probably would not have been included and include the return of Convoy in it as well

    Yeah, that's what I would like to see animated.

    Not so much Zone. I think Dai Atlas is one of the worst, most ugly designs for a Transformer that has ever been officially produced for any series. Can't stand his face, and the color combination makes him hard to even look at for me. Just completely off-putting.

    With Return of Convoy included you could also have the g1 aerial bots included/return in the series too, since they were shown on the catalogue art for the toys ( that came/was included with all the toys ) as well as being made available again in toy form.

    Combine those two series, make some small changes and Im all in !

    I dunno. For me, it's kind of a lateral move. I agree as a toy in robot mode, Grandus looks worse. But I kind of like his alt mode, and I don't think he looks worse than Dai Atlas in animation. At the very least, he's got a less garish color scheme.

    Zone does not need to be remade, nor continued. It showed one episode of Dai Atlas becoming the Cybertron leader, and then Return of Convoy has him immediately giving up his leadership to Star Convoy. There's not a whole lot to remake or continue with here.

    No, if Takara is going to commission any animated series that takes place in the JG1 continuity, it should make a series set between G-2 and Beast Wars.
