    OK, I didn't know where to post this thing, so I posted it in here. I'm going to try and write Lord of the Rings: Transformers Style. It's a big project, and I'm not really fond of writing it all by myself, so if someone wants to become a co-author, just PM me. This, although, is the main thing:

    What Universe should I use? You can suggest one of these; G1, Victory, Beast Wars Neo, Armada or Energon. Put them in order from 1 to 5, so I know which one you like the best. For extra help I will give you an opportunity to suggest who should be the main characters. Here are the ones I thought about:

    Frodo: Bumblebee.
    Sam: Windcharger.
    Merry: Cliffjumper.
    Pippin: Beachcomber (Hey, I can't write anyone else than the original Minibots...).
    Aragorn: Springer.
    Legolas: Mirage.
    Gimli: Brawn.
    Gandalf: Ultra Magnus.
    Boromir: Red Alert.
    Faramir: Inferno.
    Theoden: Optimus.
    Eomer: Blurr.
    Eowyn: Firestar.
    Arwen: Arcee.
    Elrond: Kup.
    Elladan and Elrohir: Sideswipe and Sunstreaker.
    Denethor: Galvatron (well, he's the only insane one around! And Denethor wasn't the best guy in the world...).
    (I will use the names from TF Cog's fandub)

    Frodo: Stakeout.
    Sam: Fixit.
    Merry: Red Hot.
    Pippin: Seawatch.
    Aragorn: Star Saber.
    Legolas: Greatshot.
    Gimli: Tacker.
    Gandalf: God Ginrai/Victory Leo.
    Boromir: Mach.
    Faramir: Tackle.
    Theoden: Apex Prime.
    Eomer: Galaxy Shuttle.
    Eowyn: ?
    Arwen: Minerva.
    Elrond: Blacker.
    Elladan and Elrohir: Braver and Laster.
    Denethor: ?
    Beast Wars Neo

    Frodo: ?
    Sam: Break.
    Merry: Machkick.
    Pippin: Stampy.
    Aragorn: Big Convoy.
    Legolas: Longrack.

    Gandalf: ?
    Boromir: Randy.
    Faramir: Bump.
    Theoden: Rockbuster.
    Eomer: Sharp Edge.
    Eowyn: ?
    Arwen: ?
    Elrond: Survive.
    Elladan and Elrohir: Countdown (Heinrad) and ?
    Denethor: ?

    Frodo: Highwire.
    Sam: Grindor.
    Merry: Jolt.
    Pippin: Sureshock.

    Boromir: Overload.
    Faramir: Sideswipe.
    Theoden: Scavenger.
    Eomer: Hot Shot.
    Eowyn: Airazor (whatever...).
    Arwen: Arcee.
    Elrond: Ultra Magnus.
    Elladan and Elrohir: ?
    Denethor: ?

    Frodo: Prowl (OK, not the best one...).
    Sam: Ironhide (please don't kill me...).
    Merry: Cliffjumper.
    Pippin: Downshift.
    Aragorn: Inferno.
    Legolas: Jetfire.
    Gimli: Bulkhead.
    Gandalf: Omega Supreme.
    Boromir: Landmine.
    Faramir: Hot Shot.
    Theoden: Optimus.
    Eomer: Wing Saber.
    Eowyn: ?
    Arwen: Arcee.
    Elrond: Rodimus.
    Elladan and Elrohir: Skyblast and Strongarm.
    Denethor: ?

    (One thing... I will keep the Omnicons as the elves and Rodimus as Elrond... unless someone comes up with a better plan).
    Sooo... anyone have better ideas? Or want to write this damn thing with me?

    Energon might be the best to use for the dark armies. You could use Terrorcons maybe Battles Ravages as mindless orcs and cruellocks as Uri-iki (don't know if spelled right) for large scale battles like Helm's Deep and Minis Tirth.

    REDLINE longer days, plz? Veteran

    just FYI.. its uruk-hai... and I think I'd like either G1, or else Cyb/GF would be killer. as far as cast, I'll need more time to think of a full list, BUT.. I'll just say a few about your choices, Blurr doesn't seem a good fit AT ALL... his hyperactiveness doesn't fit any character in LOTR really at all... but punch/counterpunch for G1 or Sideways/Noisemaze would be PERFECT for smeagle/gollum! as for Aragorn, that should either be Prime or else HotRod if ya go the G1 route...

    I think, if we are doing a purely-for-fun retelling/parody, there's no issue with using multiple universes. I would definatly have the main cast be prodiminatly G1 and all of them be cool chacters. I love the idea of using the minibots as Hobbits. And, I imagine I can co author parts with you as well, since I am not a bad wordsmith.

    Really? That would be great, 'cuz I'm not really good with long explaining. Ya know, I just have to get the scenes through quickly. I just can't describe any fight scenes. With dialogue and some funny gags I'm quite good. In one of my stories I wrote a funny 'fake battle' between Energon Ironhide and my OC Deathscream. It turned out to be quite side-splitting.

    But I'm not intending this to be a humorfic. Of course I'll put in much humor, many gags + some cool phrases. I'll just have to start to write this and look how it turns out. It might just become a humorfic.
    Oh yeah! Here's the Cybertron cast!

    Frodo: Scattorshot.
    Sam: Clocker.
    Merry: Snarl (I know, he's not that small).
    Pippin: Ransack.
    Aragorn: Smokescreen A.K.A. Crosswise.
    Gandalf: Vector Prime (I know. It's a stereotype).
    Legolas: Hot Shot.
    Gimli: Overhaul/Leobreaker.
    Boromir: Wing Saber.
    Faramir: Red Alert.
    Theoden: Landmine.
    Eowyn: Override.
    Eomer: Mudflap (what? He just reminds me of 'im! And besides, Landmine 'practically raised him'.).
    Elrond: Evac.
    Arwen: Thunderblast?.
    Elladan & Elrohir: Starscream & Thundercracker (please, if someone comes up with better choices...!).
    Denethor: Megatron/Galvatron.
