    We'll lay off the spoilers and not discuss who makes it out of the current movie.

    Which added characters do you want?


    For me:

    AUTOBOTS -

    Wheeljack - so necessary
    Mirage
    Hound

    DECEPTICONS:

    Ravage (somehow)
    Scrapper (the Constructicon, doesn't have to be a combiner)
    Ramjet
    Thundercracker
    Skywarp
    Astrotrain

    I'm not big on necessitating combiners in a live-action movie series.

    Furthermore, I like the way the Dinobots were brought into G1 - by Wheeljack - and he hasn't even been introduced in the movies yet, so there isn't at least a traditional way to introduce the Dinobots as of yet.

    I don't necessarily think female 'bots really serve a purpose unless they delve more into some sort of ancient biological origins for Transformers. I like Arcee, Alita-One, etc. but I don't see them fitting in without much background.

    We waited a very long time for any kind of Transformers live-action movie, and I don't think the film series needs to delve into Hot Rod, Kup, Blurr, Cyclonus, Scourge, or Galvatron. I'm also not sure we'd be ready for Unicron.

    So that's my 2 cents. Yours?

    Autobots:

    Wheeljack (absolute priority)
    Grimlock (probably not as a dinosaur)
    Ultra Magnus
    Prowl
    Mirage (infiltration expert)
    Hound
    Omega Supreme? (Something large and not expected to be a Transformer).

    Decepticons:

    Soundwave (Along with minions)
    Shockwave
    A combiner team (a redo of the Combaticons would work best I think)

    Autobots :
    Inferno (would like to see him equip with flame thrower)
    Wheeljack
    Warpath (minus all the *KA POW* antics, but they need more heavy hitters like him)
    Jetfire

    Decepticons :
    Onslaught
    Motormaster (would like to see him go head-to-head with prime like the cartoon)
    Dreadwing ( a B-12 bomber perhaps ?)

    Please don't spam. Either contribute to this thread or post your complaints in the hate thread, thank you.

    My wishlist:

    Autobots
    Grimlock (don't know what he could be though)
    Warpath (like someone said, heavy hitter)
    Wheeljack (still my G1 fave)
    Sunstreaker and Sideswipe
    Skylynx (as a cargo plane, no dual mode though)
    Omega Supreme (I still want him in as that Boeing with the lasercannon in the front).

    Decepticons
    Shockwave (new commander)
    Thundercracker and Skywarp (one possibly an Eurofighter/F-18 and the other an Harrier)
    Combaticons (I demand combiners!)
    Constructicons (see above)
    Blitzwing (maybe as an A-10 warthog with an improvised 3rd mode (think Cybertron Megatron, since I don't think it's possible to pull off a Triplechanger that well))
    Astrotrain (cargo train with an improvised jetmode)
    Soundwave (du-uh)
    Ravage (not as a minion of Soundwave, but a seperate character, like in Alternators and Beast Wars (possible replacement or partner for Barricade)).

    SHOCKWAVE and WHEELJACK!!!
    SHOCKWAVE may be a problem if STARSCREAM is the resident usurper though: Another pretender to the leadership crown may clog the story and have the audience thinking all Decepticons are backstabbers.

    WHEELJACK is an ideal choice for the next cast: His slightly mad scientist/tinkerer character offers great potential, both comic and serious, so I'd like to see him in action.

    Others I'd like to see are HOUND and MIRAGE, with the latter good for adding a few shades of grey to the potentially squeaky clean Autobot image.

    Combiner teams would be awesome. Maybe some girl-bots too, provided they can be introduced and "handled" in a less than corny manner. I guess I'll need to wait and see how each current character's niche pans out and then imagine what types of niches I would like to see filled in a sequel.

    As I said once: Autobots with light bodyframes which look human (but without the T&A), and who could pick females' voices on Earth because it fits their Cybertronian voice best.

    Stunticons would be cool (Come on, Motormasters rivalry with Prime would make a great plotline) along with Soundwave for sequal decepticons would rock. Although how to handle the combining ina non-power-rangers-ish way is the problem.

    Ultra Magnus and his own band of autobots who have some sort of grudge with Prime's bots would also be good.

    Also Circuit Breaker as a third side with her own monster-bot made from the ruins of dead 'cons.

    Springer, Trypticon, and Metroplex.

    I know it won't happen, but I'll say it anyways.

    Hmmm...here are some of my ideas.

    Autobots-
    -Cosmos(Mini-Cooper, it's odd, but it makes sense to me)
    -Jetfire(F-14)

    Decepticons-
    -Soundwave(some kind of tank)
    -Skywarp(F-22, but different bot mode from Screamer)

    They really should try and fit soundwave in for the sequel. Megatron should be absent with his reappearance being in the third. A combiner would make a nice big "end bad guy".

    i dont know, for some reason i feel that i can't take a combiner seriously. it's obviously super cool as a toy, but as a real concept...it jsut seems to silly IMHO

    Yeah, but I'd like to see some femininity in there too (at least a little T&A), without getting into the whole sexuality/do TFs reproduce from girlbots and boybots type stuff. I've seen plenty of thin guys with high voices! Either way, this is something I feel they would have to put a fair amount of though into before attempting it.
