    Just use the Beast Wars Uprising method: Silver-Bolt.

    I feel like maybe they wouldn't necessarily have to rename him. A while back there was Dent, who used to be named Prowl (presumably because he was based loosely on the BW Prowl toy). He changed his name in order to avoid being confused with the Prowl that everyone hates, but the point is that names don't have to be unique. I think most people can handle characters with the same names, provided they are easy to differentiate.

    i would love for the idw continuity to continue moving forward and enter a revamped era based loosely on the beast wars mythology. but i also want unicron to eat earth but (original secret wars style) certain communities from earth are connected to other alien worlds.. maybe even cybertron. i just want to see unicron win and earth to be slowly digested.

    i agree with this guy, we've taken from some of the parts of cartoon/comic history and , for the most part, focused on the well-known transformers in a sci-fi (nothing too deep but exciting sci-fi with identifiable individuals. later, we got theology, politics, shades of grey hiding behind labels "good" and "evil". SPOILERS FOR THOSE WAY BEHIND:

    As a child i became very tired with prime's "must not harm the humans" over-done chic in both the cartoon and comic. i just realized rereading hardcover vol.2 "Escalation...perhaps?" where a "bad" human , driving a truck looks back and smiles at his destruction thereby running straight into optimus' leg. covered in blood, he "gaks" and optimus fires two additional missiles from his person. i found this interesting and in stark contrast to his past "protector bit" and his "protect humans" in the more recent and quite terrible five live-action movies (i do admit, however, to "in a nostalgic guilty way) enjoying the first film... somewhat. i just don't identify with the live action cybertronians-they all look the same, imo.

    Maybe Megatron could fly off the top of a ship and engineer a virus then start collecting all the sparks, The characters they keep pushing on us will beat him and become hippies. Then temporarily beaten he will become a giant head and recruit Strika and Obsidian ! Lol

    I would prefer to see Magmatron and Razorbeast return, I really ENJOYED their stories in BW's gathering and ascending. Alongside this list, I would enjoy seeing someone like the blendtrons, Megatron, or even TIGERHAWK brought back in some way.

    I was talking to someone about this. I said that AirRazor and Tigertron should combine to Tigerhawk. And there should be a new Tigerhawk figure.

    he was called gigatron because that is the characters original Japanese name not because there was already a megatron (at least not solely)
