Would you like if they reboot the series and used similar bot designs from FOC?

    Well just a thought, IMO, the FOC game managed to give us a homage to G1 but still somehow reiterates that they are an alien race.

    The film completely modified how we see TF's. I have no problem with the movie design but, somehow, seeing them looking much more familiar seems worth a try.

    What do you think?

    I feel like the Fall of Cybertron designs are great updates to the designs. There is enough of the old look and colors that they don't have to list a robots name for me to know who it is, but at the same time there is so much new and different that it doesn't feel like a G1 clone.

    It's also a nice mix of feeling complicated and loaded with detail while still giving the robots a sleek design feel.

    So yea something like the Fall of Cybertron designs are what I wished the movie designs could have been.

    That'd be cool. Wouldn't be too hard to put a WfC/FoC plot in a film :)

    Uh no. Because the live action movies would be on Earth not Cybertron.

    Aren't the WfC/FoC designs kind of based on the movie designs in the first place, with their complexity? I don't think there'd be much of a difference, aside from the colors. So, really, this just turned into another "Why aren't the bots the same color as G1?!" argument.

    Not quite. Look at the movie designs then look at the foc designs. They're completely different in shape, not just color.

    IMO they would work pretty well. Maybe Optimus could be just a bit more complex. Really, I would love to just see Bruticus :D

    I like the tfp designs myself, they bring out just the the right balance of movie and G1 imo, the foc/wfc prime is not my fav design at all, however i think the other bots on the games look great!

    Nah, if they reboot things, I'd want to see a new aesthetic direction that pushes the envelope, like the first movie did.

    If they did that then the movies would bomb utterly. At least according to anyone that doesn't want any deviation away from the BayFormers look. Somehow 'no BayFormers look' equals 'hated by the general public and will be an utter box office failure'. I'm assuming they have proof of this.

    Anyway, I would like to see something different. It can be FOC, WFC, G1, TFA, MFI, BDSM or whatever else. I just want a change.

    Honestly, they could probably get away with the designs from the IDW Ongoing if they wanted to have a completely different design language. The reason for the move away from G1-esque designs was that there wasn't really any conceivable way to get a person into the vehicle, given where parts obviously went/came from. But the IDW Designs have actually managed to avoid that problem pretty well, I feel like, while still being very faithful to the original motifs and stylings of each character.

    Truthfully, I didn't mind the movie autobots. in general they really were not that bad.
    It was the cons that looked like complete shit.

    If they gave the cons a little makeover and some colors.. like any.. it would be just fine with me for the most part.

    I would prefer that they use the modern updated versions of the vehicles that they had in G1.

    Would love to see Bumblebee as a beetle again, and be just the small scout that he used to be. And Optimus to be a flat nose semi truck.

    We don't need to re-use old designs. We need to make a new aesthetic that translates in live action.

    I was fine with the Cons. But they should've made Soundwave blue and added some red on Starscream.

    But yeah some of the Cons looked like shit. Like the protoforms. I hated their designs. They should've had Cybertronian vehicle modes

    The problem is figuring out what would translate to live action. What works in games/cartoons might not look correct in the movie.

    I'd love it if more homage was paid to those designs, but no, I don't think those designs would work in the movie.

    Now they could seriously get a bucket of paint and spruce up the colors a bit. Sick of seeing grey/brown Decepticons.

    At least WFC and FOC keeps the characters primary looks and personality. That is why I got this games. Example look att Ironhide in both the game and the movie. After that look at ALL COMICS when Ironhide shows up. Wich one looks like Ironhide?

    Will Optimus' faceplate just sort of stretch when he talks? Ooh, can they have blatantly obvious transformation cheating? I guess the movie would be proactive in having the first all-obese cast of characters at least.

    I think a reboot with FOC style robots would be much better.
