If you were righting the script for Transformers 4, or any other movie-based story, what would the story be about? Characters? Etc.? As for me, don't expect a long, actual story like article. I tend to forget what I'm typing about midw. Autobots Characters: Optimus, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Dino, Sideswipe, Wreckers, Sliverbolt, Windcharger, Perceptor, Beachcomber Decepticon Characters: Straxus, Sixshot, Shockwave, Flatline, Astrotrain, Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, Ravage(s), Unicron Plot Points; * 3 years later, Sam and Carly are married and moved far, far away from the Autobots. * Straxus has come to Earth to harold the coming of Unicron. * Windcharger is often "picked on" by the other Bots. He's kinda a nerd. But still useful, and they know. * Perceptor is Aperture Science embodied in a Transformer. Science isn't about "Why?" It's "Why not?" * Silverbolt is the same as in the DOTM game at first, changes into same vehicle as Stratosphere. Same robot mode, though. * Dino finally called "Mirage". "Dino" is covered as a nickname tha he grew out of. * Beachcomber first to find 'Cons after 4 years. Killed by 'Con contact, leaving them still secret. So they think. Autobots recognize Decepticon weapon mark on Beachcomber's body. * Flatline has 2 Ravage-like 'Cons recover Megatron, Soundwave, and Starscreams bodies. Rebuilds them as mindless servants for Straxus. * Sixshot under belief that Unicron is a 'noble' cause. Straxus wants to be Unicrons favorite, to gain power. * Shockwave survived, but still has the damaged eye and broken ribs from Chicago. * Astrotrain remembers Jetfire fondly. * Straxus levels Las Vegas to create a welcoming ground for "Lord" Unicron, unaware that it'll still take years for him to get here. * Flatline once refers to Straxus "lord". Straxus is furious, claming Unicron is the only "Lord" * Sixshot turns into a jet, helicopter, tank, speedster, and wolf (all cybertronian design) * NEST plans to fire a space shuttle to learn more about Unicron, against the Autobots recommandations. Space shuttle turns out to be Astrotrain, and kills Leadfoot and Mirage before escaping with Sixshot. * Straxus does not transform. * Silverbolt transports the other 'Bots to the devastated Las Vegas strip. Sideswipe makes crack about our motto "What happens here, stays here" * Optimus asks the NEST forces not to intervene, but they do anyway. Causes massive casualties for them. * No Decepticon drones, only named characters destroy Las Vegas. * Perceptor and Windcharger try building more weapons out of whatever they find. * Thankfully, Las Vegas suberbs are spared (Straxus doesn't want to waste time with us) Only the strip and downtown get totalled. Suburbs evacuated. * Straxus makes a statement about gaining power from Unicron, to which Sixshot take major offense and defects. Not to Autobots, more-or-less his own mission man. * Astrotrain ripped apart by Topspin and Roadbuster as vengeance for Leadfoot. * Sixshot leaves, with no where to go and no one to trust. * Shockwave has his head blown off of his neck by Sixshot during his defection. * Flatline escapes. * Straxus is ambushed by the Autobots. Ratchet gives him some resemblence to Megs, with the whole "half head" look. Before finishing him, Optimus asks more about Unicron. Straxus commits suicide with a nearby lightpole through his good eye, letting the information die with him. * The Megatron, Starscream, and Soundwave 'drones' are subdued to be studies, but they all break free. Their killed by Optimus, Ratchet, and Perceptor after 3 long, individual fights. * Optimus Prime finishes with a speech about not knowing what will happen next, but swears that the Autobots will protect their new home with every fiber of their beings. Yeah, not the best, but it's a good shot. (In the dark). I may fix it later, if I get any good ideas.
