    Which TF series/era would you like to see revisited in the fiction?

    A lot of fans would say the unfinished stories like War Within 3 or the Energon comics, to say nothing of Marvel G1/G2 or Earthforce but I'd like to see other storylines get some additional fiction.

    My suggestions are:

    The Marvel Headmasters. Something like the UK Worlds Apart. A few stories that tie in with the Headmasters series. For one thing, it's not clear how long the Transformers were on Nebulos. Be nice to see some of the Steelhaven crew get some new fiction. Maybe Landmine and Cloudburst before becoming Pretenders. A few more Technobot/Terrorcon battles. Sixshot is seen in the background but gets no screentime. I'd love anything with Repugnus.

    The alternate future that Galvatron hails from. Unicron's destruction of Cybertron. The death of Rodimus Prime. Did any of the events fron TF:TM occur? Megatron obviously encounters Unicron and becomes Galvatron. How is it Rodimus became Prime but didn't stop Unicron? If certain events parallel the movie, did the shuttle attack occur and if so, how did Prowl survive?

    More UK Future stories.

    The origin of the Combaticons in the Marvel comics. We're never told they were created on earth and G2 suggests that Onslaught spawned Mindset meaning he would have had to be on Cybertron centuries or millenia ago. For that matter, the Protectobots were never shown either.

    Early days of Marvel. Maybe retcon and show the likes of Acid Storm, Sunstorm, Reflector, Soundblaster and the Seeker drones aboard the ark when it crashed. We see Reflector like technicians and the art is vague enough to allow for extra Decepticons. Be nice to boost Megatron's forces.

    The Actionmaster era.

    The Overlord/Motorvator clashes. The box blurb really made for an exciting scenario. A new breed of Decepticon on the fringes of known space. Be nice to retcon and tie in with G2 and have Overlord be the Liege Maximo who had a horrible design btw since G2 also had a new breed of Decepticon on the fringes of known space. Plus I just want to see Gripper and co. Have it painted by EJ Su as he did in Revelation with a homage to the box art on the cover.

    So what would you guys like to see?

    I'd like some more novels (not comics) based on Transformers.

    The problem of creating fiction to go between existing stories is the potential to make huge continuity nightmares. Everything has to be set back to how it was before the existing story picks up again. Sure, having Overlord being with Megatron when they attack the Ark might be a fun story you have to kill him off and get rid of him by the end or it won't make sense that he isn't around in Season 1 and nobody mentions him ever.

    ROBOTS IN DISGUISE.

    No true backstory. No true ending. A *TON* of "non-show" characters that are there to use. And it's their 10th Anniversary ... and no one gives a damn.

    I would love to see Armada get revisited, revamped, remade, and not rushed out.

    RiD would also be a cool series to see again. I never got to see it all because it aired while I was at school and our VCR was made off ass, but what I did see I loved. And according to Kickback it's its anniversary. Cool.

    I would also want Animated to get a 4th season. What all that was described in the Almanac (Which I haven't gotten yet...) could be made into it's 4th season.

    Animated needs to go on... somehow.. someway...

    Besides that, how about... The Unicron Trilogy. Continue it from the ending of Cybertron. I'm curious on how it would go on. And make it good.

    Animated for sure I want them to revisit, at least in comic form so we can truly get a sense of what was supposed to happen had they continue on with a fourth season. I want to see it finished in some form, as I felt the end of the third season was rushed.

    I also agree that there needs to be more fiction for Robots in Disguise (RID), especially considering that it's RID's 10th anniversary. Not that I've had the chance to watch the series, but having read posts where everyone says how great the series was and that they feel RID isn't getting the love the series truly deserves... yeah...

    Agreed.

    So much potential for expansion.

    Takara did, and you would not believe the mess it made.

    I want to see post Operation Combination to pre-Beast Wars then post Beast Machines.

    Does he? Due to the shifty nature of time and that it's an alternate universe, it's entirely possible it was Straxus. Straxus in the UK Comics survived his destruction as a head and later transfered it to (ultimately) a clone of Megatron, who after the regular Megatron had been presumed killed, took his place.

    There's at least one timeline where the Straxus/Megatron becomes Galvatron.

    Anyway, to answer the question, no doubt, Animated.
