How about... No new Autobots and only about a dozen Decepticons for TF4?

But unfortunately, I don't think its going to happen. There's toys to be sold, good guys sell better than bad guys, so there's likely to be at least a few new characters in the movies.
The last part is completely true.
Plus, the only guys that sell a whole lot are Optimus and Bumblebee (and maybe Megatron. I don't entirely pay attention to these things). Not everyone really cares about the ones that don't get as much screentime.

I believe GM's contract was only for the 3 films. Assuming another car company gives them a better deal, we could have Optimus Prime, and all new characters, or at least heavily redesigned ones.

As long as the Wreckers return and get more toys I'm cool with it!

If there's one thing people do in the movie forum, it's repeat themselves over and over and over.

Bumblebee himself has started to finally loose selling power due to shelfwarming HARD.

All I want is for there to be characters Hasbro will allow in the movie that get designs and alt. modes they're willing to actually make into toys (still don't get why they wanted a Ferrari and retained the idea even after they failed to get the toy license) and release early on at retail. No more of this "toys withheld due to spoilers" bullshit, not when Sentinel's early toys had the damaged Autobot symbols that implied he was a traitor and the film's true antagonist from the beginning.
Exactly.

By the time Dark Sentinel Prime came out, it wouldn't be spoiler worthy anymore. Or atleast hint of how he'll do anythign to restore Cybertron.

I agree. I still want a Brains figure.

This could easily be solved if the overarching threat doesn't really have any sort of characterization, then we could focus on the reactions of the surviving bots from the third movie and how they deal with the problem. Like . . . say . . . an Insecticon swarm like the one in All Hail Megatron.
Molon labe.
