Even if Transformers 4 does happen, eventually I am certain that we will see a new continuity of TF films made, perhaps in a decade or so or even sooner. My question is: what concepts do you want to see included in a new adaptation of Transformers? Which concepts would you carry over from the previous films, or any previous continuities? What brand new things would you like to see attempted? This is not about what specific characters you would like to see, but your opinion on the style of a new movieverse. I would definitely keep the complex and intricate nature of the designs, for the most part. I thought most of the designs were genius. However, some changes I would make include having more recognizable vehicle parts present on the robot modes. A lot of the shells bend and twist in ways which make the designs look cool but sometimes form a disconnect from the alt mode. I like the varied nature of the faces as well, but I would like all the characters to have clear mouths. I would also continue having the Decepticons look insect like as opposed to the humanoid Autobots, but add a bit more personality to some of the nondescript insect designs. I would keep the human involvement at a reasonably high level but I would decrease the role of the military. I would like to see action sequences which push the limits of the franchise by taking a cue from the ROTF game: incorporating transformations into combat. Jazz transforming onto Brawl to attack him was wicked cool in the first movie. Something DOTM did really well was having an undoubtedly robot centric story. However, I am torn on some long standing concepts from previous series. I am not sure how well a Teletraan 1/base would translate to a live action film. As robots in disguise I like the idea of Autobots on the run. I also am torn about Decepticon characterization: I really think Orci was right when he said villains feel more threatening the less they speak. Every Con in TF1 felt like a threat. While fan concerns were addressed by giving Megatron and Starscream plenty of dialogue in the sequels, they didn't feel nearly as threatening as they did in the first film. To make a new series more distinguishable I would aim for a more original cast of characters as opposed to reusing character outlines from previous series. Similar to how Armada used mostly new characters (or, those with exiting names were still different in personality), I would keep key characters like Prime, Megatron, and Starscream and perhaps give Ratchet and Ironhide, and maybe even Bumblebee, a rest. These are just a few ideas, and I do have more, but I am curious as to what everyone else has in mind.
