    We're all excited for the season 2 premiere of Transformers Prime this Saturday, but with all of the "Prime is screwed, Prime going down the tubes, and save the series petitions" going on I'd thought it'd be fun to post our hypothetical worst-that-can-happen-moments for season 2. Vent it all out here fellas! I'll start:

    Kurtzman, Orci, and Kline all resign from the team and Bay is brought on to replace them ... :lol

    Worst case scenario: Prime gets cancelled all together.

    Jack is replaced with Sam + Miko becomes girlfriend + take over the show with their annoying relashionship.

    Then they rename the show "Transformers: Prime drives Sam and Miko to prom"

    Prime turns into crap despite the best efforts of the crew. That's my worst case scenario. I can handle it being cancelled, but season rot? No.

    The series's writing goes from great to bat-s*** so fast it'll make your head spin.

    Agreed, this is why i'd prefer it not to go on for 6 seasons as others want it to, as I can't see it holding up in quality and i'd probably get bored of it by then

    Prime going on for about six seasons, it's going to get stale by then

    Prime only needs about three seasons (I love the show so of course i wouldn't mind extra seasons) i just think they'll run out of ideas by then, or just start taking plotlines from earlier TF shows

    My worst fear is that it'll be cut short. Ideally I want TFP to last as long as possible. However if it last at least it's planned out three seasons, I'll be ok.

    Also, Bay getting involved in any capacity would probably kill it for me. If he was just a one episode voice....it would kill that episode for me... (same goes for Jason Statham).

    The worst is not only the Series goes down, but all the scheduled Toys (and TF Universe) go down with it.

    They cancel the cartoon and toys to make room for unreleased DOTM toys.

    and the 2014 bayverse film becomes the Prime movie they've been suggesting may be a possibility down the line... ARGHHH!


    also- the worst worst worst things

    Prime gets cancelled without even airing season 2. just canceled.

    Hasbro re-releases FE Figs, with FE Megatron, Breakdown, tri-former Airachnid, Voyageur Ratchet, all to perfect show-scale with marvelous paint apps and die-cast metal minicon, but only distributes them on the moon. (the dark side of the moon at that)--- if you thought shipping from Canada was bad....

    after paying for inter-planetoid shipping prices for the re-released FE line (and getting screwed in one deal by a shifty astronaut named Kosmo), you find out the all your children were cuckolded by Mr. Bay himself, your wife leaves you to star in TF4, and during filming (which takes place partly in your neighbourhood for some reason) a stray chain of explosions blows up your house with all your TF collection in it.

    The only person that attends your funeral is Shia Lebeouf, and he makes dick jokes the whole way through your eulogy. Your gravestone's only ornamenation is an inscription of ROTF Devastator's clangy balls.


    CLANG - CLANG - CLANG!




    you asked for the worst thing. :lol

    They rename in Transformers: Arcee. Hurr Hurr Hurr.

    I think the upcoming TF4 could compromise some things, like toys sales. Would Hasbro ship out a line for a cartoon, or a possible multi-million dollar movie?

    But I think Bay getting involved could. If Orci and Kurtzman worked on Bay's writing team, what if Bay assumed he was involved?

    Bay: "Hey guys!"
    Kurtzman: "Oh, it's him again..."
    Bay: "I was thinking for your totally Bayos inspired show, I could maybe put in, some explosions, some robot balls, and maybe give the spider chick HUGE boobs!"
    Kurtzman: Look, this is our show, so go away.
    Bay: No way man! You use to work for me! That means I'm involved!

    Oh, how I'm not funny.

    The worst thing is Michael Bay directing Transformers Prime. :D

    Prime is cancelled so that Bay will have enough money to burn in an action scene for TF4 where Optimus burns Galvatron's corpse in cash.
    That's the worst case in my opinion

    People, these Michael Bay jokes only work for some fifteen posts, when we had two pages of Bay jokes, it seriously loses the funny factor.

    The irony is that The Arcee Triplets were probably the less sexually appealing versions of Arcee in the TF franchise, they were femine looking soldiers, just as deformed as their fellows Autobots. Kinda ironic considering Bay was at the helm. Bay had the chance to make three super model 'Bots, but he just made them three normal-looking femine soldiers, even their [little] personality was of a non-nonsense bunch of fighters not much different from Ironhide.

    It's, in fact, HILARIOUS that Bay, the man known for casting fanservice in every corner of his movies, has the least-stereotype-like Arcee [alongside Prime-Arcee]. Fate is a funny thing.

    Now worst thing? I don't know, the show being cancelled or not managing to up the awesomeness of the first season [in which case, it would grow stale very quickly].
