    question

    what might the 80s animated movie have been liek and how might it have gone over with the fanbase at the time if cybertron had actually transformed during the final battle against unicron


    think about that for a second

    just my thoughts but i think it might have been something like this

    that hundreds of possibly thousands of cybertronians be they autobot, decepticon, neutral, and non allied/unicron recreated being alike having banded together by the time of the final battle against unicron to stand together asa single united people and race as each of them individually and collectivly asa whole channel their very lifespark energy into cybertron itself actually bonding thier body and bieng to the planet itself

    with the sum total of all that lifeforce energy fully awakening vector sigma and initiation its higher functions and at the very vector sigma/ plasma energy chambers stand galvatron hot rod and arecee as living components of a incredibly sophisticated transformation circuit as they each complete the circuit theirby transforming cybertron into its own planetary scale robot form and at the very head of all that collected life spark energy is non other then the lifespark of the dead optimus prime himself serving at the head of its collective core concionse

    the fallen autobot leader himself being there fro his friends allies and his very people to lead at the head of thefinal charge into the ultimate battle against unicron itself

    that would have been so over the top beyond the impossible awesome it would have been insane

    I wouldn't have liked it. As it stands, I wasn't fond of Unicron in the first place, and I REALLY didn't like the idea of Cybertron secretly being Primus. Total jump the shark moment.

    If done right, it could have worked, but, I doubt that the cartoon would have done it in the same way as the comics. I think what we would have got would have been closer to "Cybertron".

    If it happened in G1, Primus would like the way he did in Transformers the Ultimate Guide

    Uh, that just looks so puffy and Dreamwavy.

    Anyways, I wouldn't have liked it if Primus transformed, unless there were extenuating circumstances that required him to do so.

    That'd be interesting to say the least. Except the true what if would have been "what if the quints had nothing to do with the construction of cybertron in the first place"... though G1 is no stranger to "what we said that? no, we meant *this*."

    Can't say I'd have been fond. It would've reduced the final battle to just two big robots duking it out in space. And since there would be nothing around to help scale them against they'd really just be two robots fighting. Kinda seen that already.

    I think a giant evil robot attacking a planet while smaller robots of that planet try and fight him off is way more exciting and the threat more real. It's why it can get boring if everyone is a combiner team as all that happens is the robots on opposing sides just get bigger but it's still boils down to a pair of robots fighting. It's the reason I don't like the idea of Dinobots combining to fight Devastator. Much cooler to have a big robot attacked by a group of robot dinosaurs than just two robots going at it.

    I want the cybertronians to believe cybertron is Primus, but I want them to be wrong.

    If that happened in the movie, then the movie would be completely rewritten. As in, no longer focusing on replacing old characters for new ones, but rather focusing on a massive god like battle which would end with Optimus Prime sacrificing himself to destroy Unicron, almost like the Marvel comics. As it stands, Primus doesn't really exist in the G1 cartoon continuity, at least not as Cybertron.
    Cybertron got blown to slag in Headmasters
    But if Primus did show up in the G1 movie, it would have been mind blowing if the writers forgot about the selling toys policy. But Primus would not be in Transformers for some time until his appearance in the Marvel comics.

    i was thinking it would be something like this asa battle between the gods




    but with both autobot and decepticon sides alike having their belief in primus literally being cybertron but with the autobots placing their faith in the primes


    that role of course falling to ultra magnus andthe autobots believing that even in death a prime would be their to guide them in the final battle with it turning out to be non other then optimus prime himself in that role

    for the autobots it coming down to being a mix of unyielding faith in theirfallen leader and in their creator primu's beliefs and ideals and the still living autobots desire to go on fighting for those ideals and beliefs at any cost to their living beings with it being made clear in its way that all sparks are bonded to one another even those of the newly dead to those sparks of the still living cybertronians


    it being a collective pooling of all that spark life energy making it possible for the newly dead optimus prime to actually return to the living universe for a time to serve asa herald/avatar of primus itself as he leads his fellow cybertronians in the final battle against unicronasa kind of living ghost in the flesh so to speak

    the whole idea im rolling with is that in g1 toon continuity primus did exist but when he gave life to the cybertronians asa race he literally split his spark into so many countless hundreds of thousands of millions of individual lifesparks overtime

    but with primus allowing each of those spark fragments of his own lifespark to evolveover time in the living universe so that they were so much more then just a livign species with a hive soul giving each of them life theirby allowing each livign cyberytronian being to grow to learn and to evolve into its own unique being
    primus

    prime us

    a prime in hisway having the power of his people to his being

    but with the powers of their god liek creator being spread out throughout the entire race and lallowed to fallinto a semidormant state of being over time


    but if you unite the entire cybertronian race together lifespark energy wise it recreates the eternal soul of primus itself

    theirby making itpossible for primus to exist in each andevery single cybertronian's living being asa fragmented part of each of them

    We can defeat Unicron. With the Power of Friendship.

    Rumble: "Earth!"

    Inferno: "Fire!"

    Vortex: "Wind!"

    Seaspray: "Water!"

    Powerglide: "Heart!"

    Primus: "By your powers combined, I am Captain Planet!"
