    Hey! Did you know we have a sadist Decepticon who speaks a dead language, turns into a sniper rifle and likes torturing people by removing his face, the inside of which is lined with hooks, spikes, and other various horrible things, and making them wear it?

    WELL WE TOTALLY FUCKING DO HIS NAME IS VOS AND HE'S FUCKING SCARY AS SHIT AND HOLY COCK THAT'S COOL AS FUCK

    Seriously though, I don't read the comics (mainly because they're entirely based around fan service, the stories are a chore to follow, it never tries to be more than what it is [though that might be more Hasbro's fault, since I assume they have the writers balls in a vice, creatively speaking], the designs invoke G1 and I don't mean that positively, and it's constantly suffering the same retcon/he got better/god awful pacing that plagues all comics and fuck why the hell would you tell a serious story weekly that's horrible fuck I hate comic books so goddamn much), but Vos sounds like he'd be fucking awesome on camera.

    Think about it-some poor Autobot mook gets captured by the DJD, and they say "Bring in Vos". They leave the room, as a skinny figure walks coldly and casually into the room. Subtly, something about the way he walks gives the impression that he isn't normal...he kneels in front of the mook, his body movements perfectly symmetrical. He leans in closer to the mook, craning his head slightly...he straightens his posture up. The mook whispers "What are you?". Vos, once again perfectly symmetrical, lays his bony, thin fingers on his face one at a time. He undoes two latches and slowly pulls...we hear this sickening, wet sound, like someone twisting a knife. We can hear muffled grunts, gurgles, and screams of pain as Vos does this. As he removes his face, he rotates it in his hands...the hooks, spikes, all various instruments are coated with thick blue Energon blood, occasional small, fleshy bits dangling from them. The mook screams, as Vos softly wraps his hand around the mooks head. The mook continues to scream, and as the first spike pierces into his flesh, causing Energon to spill from the wound. He continues screaming, as soon enough, his cries become muffled and gurgling. Vos locks the face into place with the latches, the mook still screaming. The shot pans over to Vos...who looks NOTHING like the comics. That porcelain doll shit makes no sense to me...at the VERY least, he should look similar to this-

    Or hell, Ronald Poppo (dude who got his face eaten by the Bath Salts zombie...look it up if you can take it. It's fucking gross). VOS SHOULD HAVE BLOOD IS ALL I'M SAYING.

    AND THAT'S JUST ONE CHARACTER! Vos isn't even the coolest character-how about an Overlord who's 70 feet tall and is played with the charm of James Bond and the psychotic tendencies of Hannibal Lecter? Or a Nightbeat, played as Cumberbatch's Sherlock? Cybertron's a big planet...it'll be neat to see some denizens show up on film.

    My question to you...who do you want to see in a TF movie, and HOW would you like to see them portrayed in it?

    Like others have said, I do want new characters in addition to old.

    That being said, I want to see Hot Rod and Ultra Magnus.

    I have one thing to say to you: Don't be ignorant; read the comics.

    See how terrified everyone is? That's a yes :p 

    I tried reading the comics-here's the thing, NO ONE CARES ABOUT CYBERTRON ANYMORE. IT FUCKING HAD IT'S CHANCE, THEY LEFT THAT SHITTY PLANET FOR A REASON.

    Seriously though, the entire appeal of the cartoon was that they went to EARTH to continue the fight for Cybertron-almost EVERY IDW comic I read (granted it's not a lot) took place either on Cybertron or on some buttfuck planet in the Who Gives A Shit Quadrant of the Poopdick Nebula. You wanna write stories on Cybertron, fine-write prequel series's for that AFTER the main series. Also, I generally hate comics already, so there's that going for 'em. But no hate if you enjoy them-I just personally don't care for 'em.

    Well, I don't think anyone was terrified, just a little confused about why you wanted to parade some poor little fellas physical deformities around, to make a point about kids sci-fi movie!

    Well when you put it that way I feel like a dick :|

    In all fairness, I meant no insult by it-just as a point of reference. What I ACTUALLY had in mind for Vos was a lot closer to the Miami Cannibal victim, and for obvious reasons I couldn't show that. No disrespect to Dallas Wiens, the guy in the picture, was intended-he seems to be making remarkable recoveries, and I wish nothing but the best for him.

    And maybe using the picture was a tad extreme, but what you said is just the reason why-"KIDS" Sci-fi-Transformers is a rich, complex franchise, with the potential to tell amazing stories. It does NOT deserve to be thought of as "Just Kid's Stuff". I want more than that for the franchise, even if it IS an insane and totally illogical dream. Marvel was thought of as "Just Kid's Stuff" and after Avengers grossed approximately all of the money, no one really thinks of it that way anymore. Why the same can't be done with Transformers, I don't understand-just find a director who gives a shit about the characters and let him go nuts.

    You can't really compare the two. Marvel is in the business of telling stories, Hasbro is in the business of selling plastic.
