    Right? I think IDW is onto something with this one.

    Haha. That would be insane. I'd love to get a Prime that transforms into a hunter/killer.

    T-1000's go all liquid, flow into transformer joints and wreck them. Only way this isn't horribly one sided. Even the t-x could be stomped. T-100's are nothing to transformers.

    Unless the autobots are too "oh no they MIGHT be humans!"

    I like this idea. I'd rather have it Megatron that does the crushing, though. Still, that's pretty cool.

    But what if... Megatron IS SkyNet?

    my gut reaction is this a terrible idea.

    but then, on one hand, the Robocop -vs- The Terminator miniseries is one of the best crossovers of all time, and thematically this could really make sense.

    but on the other, that series was by Frank Freaking Miller and Walter Freaking Simonson, and in the late 2010s the likelihood of IDW generating a readable Transformers comic, much less a Transformers crossover with another franchise seems like a tall order.

    You mean some time travel shenanigans? Hell yea. I like that idea too!


    I think a really cool twist would be the transformers are able to fight there way to Skynet, open him up, and find a spark.

    That's how we would know Skynet is Megatron.

    This is not true. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles is a great series and the best sequel to the second movie, although it ended without a ending because the series was canceled, and besides there are good comics of franchise.

    I mean... I'll read it when it's cheap on Comixology, I suppose, but it's yet another TF crossover that just has no real appeal for me.

    This saying wasn't mine, but I find it so true:

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me four times, you're the Terminator franchise.

    So, there will be terminators in human skin, and the TFs will shrug, and show them that they\'ve got Pretenders?

    In reality, Skynet going to against Cybertron is like trying to chop down the mightiest tree in the forest, armed only with a herring.

    I do wonder though, it is like some sort of time-travel like story, hold on. What if they find use of some elements from Classics, Machine Wars and perhaps other Transformers continuities including Designs and perhaps concepts for some of the future scenes, i don't know how they would handle it. But seeing Megaplexes, A variety of Vehicons and perhaps some Insecticons in the mix of the usual T-1000 & Hunter Killer models. And some of the Autobots that are forced to go incognito to prevent themselves from getting caught and potentially controlled by Sky-Net (Mostly Optimus (G1 mostly, but perhaps use some makeshift body based on his Machine Wars design.) Bumblebee (Either using his Goldbug form or Classics Bumblebee design.) Hoist (Machine Wars Hoist) and perhaps two other members. Perhaps Sandstorm in his Machine Wars appearance. Just to make that iconic get in the chopper reference.

    I guess the lead decepticons (Starscream, Skywarp, Thundercracker & Soundwave) might also use their Machine Wars appearances as "Skynet Reformated" forms.

    Well, guess this gives me an excuse to finally watch the Terminator films.

    Also, this has to be for the Collaborative line, right? Right?! Wonder what else they'll pull from '84...
    (Begins to scroll through other films that were released in 1984)
    Hmm... Dune, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, Footloose, Gremlins, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, The Karate Kid, The Muppets Take Manhatten, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Police Academy.... Hm, I seem some good future potential.

    And that's from '84 alone, Makes you wonder what they might have in mind for the class of '96. Wait... what iconic moments even happened in the 90's again?

    Power Rangers hopefully.

    Man, I may not be reading the main comics right now but I will definitely be reading this!
