    I would absolutely love to see this, provided that the writers are able to not only expand upon their relationship, but also further develop Elita as a character. Back in G1, the only things we knew about her were her origin (and even that didn't tell us everything), love interest, teammates, and special power. There needs to be more to her than just those things. Why exactly are she and Optimus attracted to each other? What kinds of relationships does she have with the rest of her fellow 'Bots? What are her strengths and weaknesses, aside from her time-stopping ability, if they even decide to keep that? What does she do when she's not busy fighting for freedom, besides spending time with her boyfriend? These questions and more need to be answered if we ever see her again.

    I already told you that I'm not opposed to them "changing it up," but I still want to see Elita show up at some point, even if it's not this time. Also, try to understand that people don't always have to agree with each other's opinions. You want Optimus x Arcee, okay, that's fine. Some of us want Optimus x Elita, that's also fine. At the very least, let's agree to disagree instead of continuously arguing over it.

    Technically, that's not true. The original incarnation of her may have only appeared twice (counting the episode "War Dawn", in which she appeared as Ariel), but several different versions of her have shown up in subsequent fiction. There was an Elita in Revenge of the Fallen, another in Animated, and most recently, the old IDW continuity. So there's definitely a chance of her making another appearance in the future, we just don't know if she'll be anything like her Generation 1 counterpart. I hope she will be (only, as I explained previously, more developed), but like I said, this isn't something we have to agree on.

    If they do a Transformers romance, I want it to develop slowly over a series of movies. Just drop a few hints in an earlier movie, build up a relationship between the couple and then later make it more obvious that something's going on between the two.

    But first, and I'll keep repeating this, let Paramount get the hang of making good Transformers. Romance can wait.

    If Elita One shows up, I honestly don't care what her connection, if she has any, with Optimus is. Just let her be portrayed as a competent commander of her own team and not a genocide-advocating lunatic. I love IDW, but I despise how they handled Elita as a character.

    Is there any Transformer Arcee hasn't gotten with?
    :yuck 

    It's always been:
    Optimus and Elita
    Ironhide and Chromia
    Inferno and Firestar ?

    Arcee and her flavor of the week :lol

    In theory, a story about interspecies romantic love, in the vein of the movie "Her", but with a transformer instead of a computer, could be very interesting. In reality, I don't think that's what Lorenzo and his merry gang have in mind or could ever pull off with any grace.

    Wouldn't be the first time romance entered the Transformer world.
    Just saying Drift and Crosshairs are already a couple in my eyes they drive way too close to each other to be in the friend zone.

    But seriously Lorenzo needs to shut up what's he's going to say next the Dinobots are going to have a spinoff movie about being cooks. To quote that fish from Spongebob regarding Lorenzo.[​IMG]

    Optimus is far to classy for the likes of Arcee

    Ahhhh... not is this referring to Transformers or humans?
    If were Talking Transformers the public isn't familiar with some characters to bring them in. Elita-One and Chromia confirmed?
