Agreed. I think Burton would do a war-ravaged Cybertron better than any director

I'm not sure if his style would translate well. In fact, I'd probably just extract Danny Elfman for the musical score and leave everything else. Burton just has a very particular style. A good style, but again, something that may not translate very well into the TF mythos.

HORRIBLE idea. I'm sorry. He is a terribly over rated director, ONLY good for movies that help sell shirts at hot topic.

Nailed it. Burton personifies the law of diminishing returns.

So, I assume no one here has seen his Planet of the Apes remake, which had nothing that you described.

Closest thing I could find that resembles what a Tim Burton Optimus might look like.

Complexity of Bayformers, but the lanky, stylized look that his film characters/concepts tend to have.

True, PotA was a more "normal" film from Tim Burton, but it still had his Burton-touches. Plus, it had Helena Bonham Carter. That alone is enough to qualify it as 47% Burton-ized already.
Interested in anything to do with voice-acting? Look no further than Behind the Voice Actors!

I can't decide if it would be a good idea or not. Nightmare Before Christmas is my all-time favourite film, but then he's also been involved in some utter cack. He's pretty much a parody of himself now. Would the public take a TimFormers movie seriously?

Helena Bonham Carter would have to be the goth love interest because shes burtons women and has to be in EVERYTHING he does
