    Why do artists always draw cybertron so small? Do you really think we would see buildings from space?

    You know if they do a Crisis on Infinite Cybertrons, that in 20 years or so it will be revealed that Ratchet lobotomized Shockwave, then Bluestreak will get killed investigating Prowl and his Checkmate organization, who will have taken control of Brother Teletran satellite and released the Omaximals.

    Then there will be a war between Paradron and Nebulos, Defcon will be maniuplated by Bludgeon to go on a quest to destroy all magic, and Megatron will unite the Decpticons together to protect them from the autobots, while a shadowy figure named Mockingbot gathers a small force of 6 Decepticons to stop him.

    It will be revealed that Mockingbot is another Megatron, and it will also be revealed that Marvel Comics Optimus, Hot Rod and Galvatron are trying to bring back the Marvel Universe, saying the IDW one is corrupt.

    Soon after, it will be revealed that the United Deceptcon Megatron is actually Galvatron, and that he has been manipulating all the events behind the scenes with the aid of Hot Rod.

    That is why we don't want Crisis. I don't think IDW will be big enough to handle the sequel.

    A building can be a city-state when you don't have to worry about pesky things such as breathability at altitude.

    We're also talking about beings who range from 1-20 times the height of an average ~6ft. Human. Depending on how many stories in a building, and the size of Cybertron (it's been officially repesented as anything from about the size of our *moon*, which is 1/3 our size, to the size of Saturn...), it is possible that they would build that large.

    I'm gonna go against the grain and guess that this is a War Within type series. Didn't Furman recently say he is doing 3 books?

    Maybe it'll be Sunstorm! Or maybe the autobots will be taking a vacation in the tropics, when suddenly they're attacked by the savage sharkticons!! Wait, no, that sounds like a bad Armada episode...

    Ooo, I REALLY hope this is a Cybertron series or mini-series, an idea as good as Cybertron deserves some good comics... The "storm" could refer to the black hole...

    I'd say the start of a new story arc in Infiltration based around events on Cybertron, possibly inspired by the Cybertron series.

    Ok, you are suggesting "Crisis in Infinite Cybertrons" and "Cybertron", but are you considering some sort of movie prequel?
    BTW: I would love to see an "Infinite Crisis" story line for TFs.

    Well, Infinite Crisis grew out of Crisis on Infinite Earths. A Crisis on Infinite Cybertrons could very easily be something to that order too. Heh, actually that gives me an idea...

    As for what it means, my bet is on a Cybertron mini, or Infiltration switching to show events on Cybertron. Perhaps it will chart how the war started?

    The script for the movie isn't even completed yet, from what I last heard. And it's bound to change repeatedly in production. I very much doubt this has anything to do with the movie.

    My favorite suggestion so far, from Transfandom, is the Swarm/Vok. But I doubt it. Most probably a series set on Cybertron.
