    What if all transformers were inducted into a Lantern Corps?

    Okay, we have fan art of Green lantern G1 Optimus Prime.
    [​IMG]

    How about more Cybertronians become lanterns? from all universes?

    Would it change allegiances or create subfactions in Autobots or Decepticons? (i.e. Green decepticons vs, Yellow Decepticons. Red Autobots vs Blue Autobots. in addition to Autobots vs Decepticons)
    How would it affect The War?

    Try this as a game of sorts.


    Pick a transformer, ANY Transformer, then pick a lantern for them, explain what happens..

    Which color would they be?
    Why would that lantern choose them?

    Bonus; How would they look in their new lantern colors?


    If you have, make or find relevant fan art, digibashes, or customs, post them here, otherwise, ideas and descriptions would work fine.


    My first suggestion, Black Lantern Prime Megatron.

    Imagine the Dark Energon glow as a black shadowy glow, and his metal is not only tarnished, but a bit rusted, covered in shadowy terrorcon like markings.

    Bumblebee (Sinestro Corps)
    1: Yellow/black
    2: DOTM Cyberfire Bumblebee fits the image.
    3: He brings great pain, people hardly knows what he's saying and he seems to have a clone army that invades local towns. He's perfect for the Sinestro Corps.

    Swindle would definitely be an Orange Lantern...assuming if Swindle was able to get one off of Larfleeze.

    Nemesis Prime in the Black Lantern Corps (it works both for his actual colours and him being a zombie/evil type)

    I know it's cross copyright limits, but can't we do our own custom/fan made crossover stuff here?

    First Aid would get a blue ring.

    The Fanboys would probably want Arcee in the Star Sapphires.

    I wonder what'd happen to a combiner if it's components had several different types of rings, especially opposites (i.e. Yellow and Green, as unlikely as that would be). Would it control all of them or end up fighting itself? Would it have it's own ring?

    Take Bruticus, for example. While the gestalt itself may qualify for the Red Lanterns, the only individual Combaticon that really does is Brawl. Swindle is far more likely to get (or rather take) Orange, while Vortex would get Yellow. Not entirely sure what color Onslaught or Blast Off would get, but that's still quite a mix for a simple-minded combiner.

    I suppose in-fiction Atrocitus or whoever would just send the entire Combaticon team rings (or just one for Bruticus), and Swindle would be off acquiring any others he could get.

    There are planets, viruses, and abstract mathematical equations in the Corps. I'm sure it'll work out somehow.
