    You know while it's fun to see G1 being reimagned into modern times in IDW would you like to see the same done for the other universes? Like maybe a reimagned universe for Beast Wars,Transtech,Armada,or even the orginal RID show? I'd go for that because it would allow different takes on those series and maybe improve of the concepts and characters in them. Maybe in a couple of years IDW may do the same for Animated and Prime 10 or 20 years later.

    What do you think?

    I'd be up for it if the creative team's good.

    A reimagined G1 series... that isn't based on G1.

    Uh... huh. I think you messed up your wording in the topic title there, kaijuguy.

    Anyway, I'd really like to see a new Beast Wars comic. Preferrably one that doesn't try to stay in the show continuity. I'd like to see something completely new.

    Same here. Kinda like The Gathering, but with different characters (Razorclaw, please) and without the tie-in to the show.

    G1 is the only unvierse that's really scaled with any sort of "time", and even then it's just the first two seasons stuff.

    Would I like to see "mature" continuations or reboot comics based on other universes? Sure, but I'd rather see something completely new even more.

    yea- we've got so many different TF comics ongoing or on the way (MTMTE, RID, Regeration, FOC miniseries, Dinobots in TFP continuity in the fall, Autocracy part 2 or something was mentioned at some point???) That i personally dont see a WHOLE NEW continuity being viable commercially at this point.

    Sure, if it was done right, anything could be cool, but i would rather have IDW keep the bar high on their current endeavours than try to develop something completely new. If they had people to spare to work on something new- give me backstories for the DJD, the scavengers, Impactor and Guzzle, etc etc --- there is SO much they could do within their current continuity- why bother working on something else?

    That'd be pretty damn interesting. Bring in Roberts as the author, and it'd be a great way to expand on a lot of those crazy repaints and such (Reptillion, please).

    I'd also like to see their take on the Universe storyline. It'd be pretty confusing to a lot of new readers with characters from all over the place, but I'm sure a lot of fans would love it, since old favorites from across series get a chance to shine together in a series ala Crisis On Infinite Earths. And yeah I agree, gives a lot of opportunity for repaints/retools/repurposing.

    Not reimagined, but I want some Aligned continuity comics. Possibly ones that fill in the gap between FOC and Prime

    You're in luck. Rage of the Dinobots, releasing later this year, intends to do just that.

    People don't realize this but... series that are not based on G1 suck.

    If you disagree, just ask yourself this... would the Transformers movies have reinvigorated the franchise the way it did if Michael Bay had made a movie based on Beast Wars? Now take this logic and apply it to the comics and all other Transformers media.

    Beast Wars is a sequel to G1, so it's in continuity.

    Only thing I want to see is series on the 13 and maybe an Animated series. The other stuff like the Beast series, horrible Unicron Trilogy not interested. I wouldn't mind a Dinobots ongoing. More G1 books the better to me.
