I think every fan has had this idea every one in a while, "How would I make Transformers?" Would you make it a dark, gritty and realistic yarn? Or a more campy and wholesome affair with red and blue lasers? I apologize in advance for making this thread as nothing more than a place to gab off about my idea for a TF series (and socialize), but as a countermeasure, I invite all of you to pitch in your two cents on the hypotheical notion of making your own series. Mine?, well...: "The planet Cybertron is a peaceful world, the ravages of war nothing but an unpleasant aftertaste and a bad dream. It's inhabitants live their days roaming other planets in search of scientific advances and the privilege to learn from other species' cultures. But the wide-eyed Cybertronians should have kept an optic on their own planet... Deep within the planet's core something began to stir, something primal, something evil. A grim fragment of Cybertron's past had resurfaced, a plauge. Widespread panic engulfed the metallic world as more and more bots fell victim, the disease twisting their minds and forms into monsterous mockeries of Cybertronian life. The infected were rallied by an individual who saw their metamorphasis as a blessing. One they must share with all sentient creatures. At any cost. Only handfulls of immune bots remained on-world, unsure of what to do. They eventually decided to send exploration vessels to various planets and solar systems, re-establish contact with their off-world brethren and prepare for the worst. They took a new name for themselves, one that reminded them that they were proud and noble robots, a single autonomous unit dedicated to preserving the peace and freedom their planet once housed. Not just themselves, but for all sentient beings. The head infected was not pleased with the idea of resistance at all. He commanded his most loyal and trusted missionary to incite an army of the most powerful, ruthless, cunning and depraved of their numbers. And for the first time in countless eons, the Cybertronians had predators. A craft led by a veteran of the Old Great War eventually made it's way to a small blue planet. It's inhabitants similar to the creatures the virus spawned, but these small and diverse aliens were different. But before the veteran's crew could learn more about this strange and new ecosystem, the head infected's missionary launced a full scale attack on the vessel. Devastated by the assault, the rebel's vessel fell to the planet's surface, the impact forcing it's crew into stasis. Years later, the crew awakes to find the little, blue planet under siege by their former brothers. They are outnumbered and against impossible odds as both factions fight over the fate of the planet's inhabitants in secret. A bespecticled young man with wheels stumbles upon this secret war, the untainted robots take it upon themselves to protect him and all of his people, finding a valued ally, a kindred spirit and a purpose to fight in the lad. These are the stories of how the heroic Autobots and the human, Chip Chase, must face the evil Predicons and other various trials and hardships, to protect the planet Earth." Your turn, if you so desire.
