So, I've never started a thread before but I've been thinking alot about Star Wars Transformers and why I don't like them and I wanted to know what people think. I believe they shot themselves in the foot when they tried to make the vehicles transform into established Star Wars characters, and I think many would agree with me on this (though many won't, which is cool too). I think it would have been cool for them to have G1 characters transform into Star Wars vehicles. I'm sure this has been mentioned before somewhere, and I apologize if I'm re-hashing old stuff, but I was thinking of how the G1 characters could get involved in the Star Wars universe. Here's my idea: Megatron gets challenged somehow by this more-powerful-than-usual-but-no-match-for-me fleshbag wielding a curiously powerful light sword, whom he incinerates quite nicely. Darth Sidious feels the death of his apprentice, and feels an immense shift in the force (Megatron's unbounding evil) and blah blah blah Megatron becomes the Sith apprentice (very much for his own ends, as is the Sith way). The Jedi, in the meantime, have very coincedentally found a planet of sentient robots, some of whom are very very strong in the force, but don't know it. So blah blah blah, insert some of your favorite G1 (or any generation for that matter) characters as Jedi potentials who need to return with the Jedi for training. They don't want to let the cat out of the bad, hence the need to reformat to Star Wars vehicle modes. Eventually each one crafts their own lightsaber to complete their training. Begin conflict with wicked-cool action sequences with Autobot Jedi and Decepticon Sith wielding lightsabers and doing using Force powers. I don't know, I just think that would be waaay cooler than what they've got going now, if for no other reason than more creativity could be used in the transformation scheme. For ultimate creativity, they could even create entirely new characters altogether, maybe Transformers spies who've already infiltrated that galaxy to collect information/energon/whatever. After learning of the Jedi and their powers, they could attempt to contact the Jedi to see if they have any affinity with the Force and for training should it turn out that they do. Then they contact Seibertron to let them know of the discovery so they can bring the rest of the Transformers into play. Anyway, just something I've been thinking about. Good ideas? Crap-tastic? What do you all think? And I'm uber-new to posting threads, so if I've made any mistakes or anything in the process, totally sorry.
