    Which characters do you never want to see in the movies? We have a megathread for the ones you want in the movies-who would you like to keep out of the movieverse, whether it be for doubting the writers abilities to do the concept of the characters right (Primus, Unicron), preserving the characters' personalities for fear of Bay ruining them and setting a precedent (movie BB anyone?), or something that just wouldnt work in a movie (Headmasters), list them here!

    I'd rather not see their take on Headmasters. That's really the only one that I'm too opposed to. I'd say Primus/Unicron simply because they'd end up being very minor roles based on the extensive visual effects required for anything super duper awesome.

    Anything else is fair game for reinvention.

    I don't think there's any TF I'd not want to see appear in BayFormers. I'd likely be disappointed in how badly they chose to handle that character, but I'd like to see how far they go away from previous versions before they get entirely into nameslap territory.

    As for things (previous TF concepts) 'not working', I feel anything could be made to work with some intelligent effort.

    Given that most characters not never 1:1 ported into the movies, I'm fine with anyone really. I don't follow the idea of "They disgraced _____ by putting him in the movies like that".

    That said, I think there are concepts that won't work well on-screen. *Masters that use human/nebulan components I don't really see as working easily. But robotic Targetmasters or something like that could work. They've done a Pretender before, but I could be up for another one. Same goes for a combiner, but I'd want the combiner to be much more tied into combat this time.

    I think that the writers need to be given carte blanche if we're to expect them to produce anything original/novel.

    I really don't want to see any of the Decepticons I've liked in other incarnations of Transformers to show up in the movies. It seems like the Decepticons are only really there to get killed and the movie versions of the Decepticons just don't seem like the coolest versions of the characters. It's a bit like they want to use the names and perhaps the general alt mode but the production team just can't grasp the little things that made the character cool in the first place.

    Autobots are more of mixed bag since some of them have had cool new twists on the characters but others have left me wondering why I ever liked the character.

    New characters or characters based on really obscure characters without a lot of back ground seem to work the best. When you don't really know much about a character's past there just isn't any feeling of something being off. Although it does still feel like Decepticons there just to get killed if it's an old character or brand new just for the movies.

    I'd be open for about any character to be in the films. Except for the Dinobots. They are the only group I think should be left out of the films if I were to choose one.

    Nice sarcasm there I still think a tank would be cool, but what about a fire vehicle? I've seen fan art like that.

    Anything from Beast Wars. Seriously. There's no way it'd be good, so don't even try.
