    I was wondering how TFP would turn out if Michael Bay was behind the series? I am grateful he's not, but just imagine if he was. How different would the show be?

    Jack would be an over the top goth wangsty teen motorcyclist
    Raf would be like Dutch in DOTM
    Miko would be the same.
    Fowler would be the same.

    There would be explosions everywhere a robot walked. The ending to every episode would be cut 3 minutes early. Arcee would be killed off in the first episode instead of Cliffjumper. Every robot would have overly complicated designs, and Optimus Prime would want to kill everything in sight.

    I don't think MIKO would be exactly the same. Besides being dumb and annoying, Bay would put her in a skanky outfit and turn her into a slut. And June would eat pot brownies for breakfast and then run around like a crazed nut all day despite the fact that pot doesn't do that do a person.

    And Jack would say "no, no, no" every third sentence.

    Optimus would steal everybody's faces.

    Jokes aside, I'm not sure. Orci and Krutzman worked on both and look at how different they are. Also, one is a Pg-13 film trilogy while the other is a Y-7 TV series.

    im sure mr bay would turn at least one autobot into a racist stereotype and add an extra human female character to constantly strut around in hardly any clothes for added for added sexism. the storys would be simpler but a hell of a lot harder to follow. there would no characterisation of the decepticons at all

    I'm just gonna go with what everyone else is saying, but make it a lot simpler:

    It would suck.

    If Bay created Transformers Prime, Agent Fowler came to help against Unicron and killed him using a single shot out of his top secret rifle resulting in a gigantic explosion with the maincast and fowler walking in slowmotion in front of it away from the explosion.

    Jack would say "NONONONONNONONONONONOOONO" a lot, and everything would be in orange and teal

    Decepticons would get owned left, right and center by Earth's military forces.

    The story would most likely focus on the human allies rather than the Cybertronians... *SPOILER AHEAD*

    And speaking of Transformers history, it's good to see Orci and Kurtzman added the Orion Pax / Megatronus scene... That was truly awesome!

    Bay would have probably shown Iacon exploding... :bay

    So far I agree with everything said so far.

    Mech wouldn't exist :cry  and NEST would.

    I think that if Bay had been given control over TFP....he would have taken over the entire story-line, effed it up a looot, ignored anything Hasbro tried to tell him, and the show would have been an absolute failure (as far as I'm concerned anyways). Which would cause me to loose 90% of my current interest in the Transformers franchise, and the only Transformers I would buy from the foreseeable future would be Generations and Fall of Cybertron stuff.

    Jack would have gone in a fist fight with Unicron. They would ignore the fact that there is the plot hole of Unicron destroying the Earth if he fully restores.

    I can’t imagine this scenario because I think Mr. Bay is incapable or uninterested in making a show for children—didn’t he originally turn down the Transformers for this reason?

    Michael Bay loves swear words and T&A shots a bit too much for Saturday morning cartoon standards. While I’d welcome the addition of killer fights every episode, I just don’t think his vision of a weekly animated show would fly with the censors.

    I'm not really sure if Michael would give a crap about doing a cartoon, so it's really HARD to imagine.

    The only way it could be good would be if he just hired good people and sat back,

    Yeah and Fowler would have a million soldiers with him saying things like "bring the rain". And they'd have a U.S. flag on everything. And they'd get more screen time and characterization than the bots.

    There would be a lot more explosions.
