    I know everyone wants bayverse to stay die and I could drone all day about how much better job IDW would do in their series but wouldn't it just be better to let them have a shot in making their own continuity in full defiance of bay/lorenzos vision???

    As far as I'm aware; The 2005 G1 continuity had a well crafted storyline with many new takes on fan favorites for its 13 year run. They could really do the same for bayverse if hasbro allows it.

    NO.
    The last thing I want is my favourite movie characters to all become politicians.

    Why would Hasbro allow them after they pretty much requested it to be nuked in the BB movie?

    I wish the IDW could end the plots of the movies in the comics. I was thinking and what I would like to happen:

    If John Barber could write two mini-series: one between the third and fourth movie and another between the fourth and fifth movie and then a miniseries to finish the Unicron plot and the universe of the movies.

    Maybe also a miniseries in the Cybertron to link what was written in the old comics with the information from movies 4 and 5.

    I miss the comics as filler for the stuff that happened inbetween the movies. Personally, I'd love to get a comic that explains events as they happened between AOE and TLK.

    Maybe. I liked the "fill-in" stories that IDW made that took place before and after the 2007 Movie such as the Reign of Starscream. I could partially see them as being spinoff movies.

    And it was a shame that ROTF subtly retconned them even though IDW had made a more coherent movie than ROTF's writing.

    Sure, in theory they could do something like that.

    Whether or not they'd do a good job with it is another story.

    I want an Anthology comic series from IDW. Writers would be given from one to five pages to tell a short story taking place at any point in any Transformers storyline.

    The point is to expand upon the original story with more details or to correct a mistake. Kind of like the recent ‘84 book but with more of an emphasis on reinforcing the continuity and not breaking it even further.
