I've begun to think Hasbro should start to do DC style animated movie approach to Transformers. One thing that has been successful for DC is doing a series of animated films based on popular stories. Transformers, in my opinion, has a similar 'multiverse' format that means it's not like the Marvel Universe where one grand narrative needs to be preserved. Stories can be picked up and told with limited backstory because the 'basic origin' of Transformers, similar to Batman and Superman, is usually basically the same, with the individual comic or TV stories stemming from an almost story singularity only with changes to the basic cast of characters. It also has a wide library of characters with a central BIG 7 style core group (Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Bumblebee, Soundwave, Grimlock, Shockwave) with a few additional prominent members (Prowl, Jazz, Rodimus/Hot Rod, Galvatron, Ultra Magnus) that rotate in. This means you have a wide variety of major stories to tell, as well as some minor ones. Some stories I'd suggest for the videos Target 2006 (probably the first one worth doing) The War Within Transformers Generation 2 (G.I.Joe, Cobra, Megatron, Optimus returning) Matrix Quest IDW Unicron Infiltration The Last Stand of the Wreckers Beast Wars featuring unused toy characters Megatron Origins A old Knights of Cybertron style film Optimus Prime's origin Marvel Unicron and or his aftermath Scorponok vs Shockwave (Decepticon Civil War) Starscream Trimuphs (Transformers #50) Something based on Devestation A Prime spinoff movie or cartoon Something set in RiD Are All Dead Transformers/GI Joe And so on... I really think that a cartoon that attempts to afix itself to a singular continuity is really limiting for this particular franchise, and I believe this would be the way to go.
