Good question, the movies went with a very realistic design less machine more alien, the TF look like aliens. What would a reboot design be, how would they handle the relationship between the two species, I honestly don't know? I've always felt the best idea for a reboot was a DOFP scenario you don't have to change the designs but you have a clean slate yet the continuity still matters since it brought about that clean slate. I don't think a live action TV series is even doable people think there's not enough robot focus now I think a live action show might change that belief because I don't see how the TF could have any kind of screen time on a low scale budget. As I said recently I don't want a TF cinematic universe I just don't think it's a good idea nor do I think it can properly carry itself. Marvel has countless solo titles TF doesn't it's always been more of an ensemble. Bumblebee doesn't have his own comic series, Starscream doesn't have a mini series. TF is not Marvel comics trying to make it like them is not a good idea. Cinematic universes should apply to franchises that fit the idea of them.
