    I know someone already made a thread similar to this but that would be me reviving a dead thread so I wanted to open a new discussion. With The Rise of Skywalker coming out it got me thinking back to a few years back to when I was recasting the MCU & Star Wars as Transformers characters.

    Here is just a short list of characters I have...
    Kup - Obi-Wan Kenobi
    Orion Pax/Optimus/Nemesis Prime - Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader
    Elita One - Padme Amidala
    Megatronus Prime/The Fallen - Palpatine/Darth Sidious
    Perceptor - C-3P0
    Bumblebee - R2-D2
    Alpha Trion - Yoda
    Wreck Gar - Jar Jar Binks
    Megatron - Count Dooku
    Soundwave - Jango Fett
    Sentinel Prime - Qui Gon Jinn
    Ultra Magnus - Mace Windu

    Hot Rod - Luke Skywalker
    Springer - Han Solo
    Arcee - Princess Leia
    Grimlock - Chewbacca
    Shockwave - Grand Moff Tarkin
    Jazz - Lando Calrissian
    Soundblaster - Boba Fett
    Seaspray - Admiral Ackbar
    Mistress of Flame - Mon Mothma

    Starscream - Kylo Ren
    Windblade - Rey
    Deadlock/Drift - Finn
    Metalhawk - Poe Dameron
    Liege Maximo - Supreme Leader Snoke
    Obsidian - General Hux
    Strika - Captain Phasma
    Wheelie - BB-8
    Nautica - Rose Tico

    Chromia - Jyn Erso
    Ironhide - Cassian Andor
    Blaster - Saw Gerrera
    Impactor - Tobias Beckett

    So I'm kind of curious, what is everyone else's picks? I've honestly had a hard time especially for some like most of the spin offs, Darth Maul, & especially Jabba the Hutt. Keep it civil and of course discuss.

    The only three of those I'm feeling are Hot Rod/Arcee/Springer, and those were all pretty intentional.

    Personally, I would make Count Dooku into Sentinel, as I feel their story arcs would work better thematically. I like the idea of Prime killing Megatron as the stepping stone to his turn to the dark side, but I just feel that Megatron should have a better role in the overall conflict of the series.

    Hot Rod as Luke, Arcee as Leia, and Springer as Han are the ones that instantly come to mind.

    I'd actually say that Optimus Prime as Obi-Wan Kenobi works too.

    I would put Megatron into the Darth Vader role... but maybe because I really want to see a story line with a younger Megatron before he leads the Deceptions. Optimus I would of put as Luke Skywalker.

    That said this kinda works with Optimus becoming Nemesis before Hot Rod takes his place. But Megatron ends up with a pretty small and boring role considering Count Dooku is easily the most boring or all the Sith Lords in the films. He just kinda shows up for the second movie and in the third he dies right at the beginning of the movie. He lasted longer than Darth Maul yet some how Darth Maul is still the more interesting of the two.

    A lot of people don't even realize his name was Darth Tyrannus because that name was mentioned off handedly like maybe once and most people immediately forgot it or didn't realize that was Dooku's Sith alias.

    So who would Admiral Akbar be?

    I think Nemesis prime would be a perfect Vader, also in terms of locations, The Death Star would be Unicron

    Transformers Star Wars:
    Episode IV A NEW HOPE
    It is a period of civil war. Autobot spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Decepticon Empire. During the battle, Autobot spies managed to steal secret plans to the Decepticon’s ultimate weapon, UNICRON , an armored space station with enough power to consume an entire planet. Pursued by the Decepticons sinister agents, Arcee races home aboard her starship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save her people and restore freedom to the galaxy….

    Lockdown- Bobba Fett
    Jabba the Hutt- Quintesson judge
    Stormtroopers-Veichons
    Ewoks- Junkions
    Luke Skywalker- Hotrod
    Darth Vader- Nemesis Prime
    Yoda- Alpha Trion
    Obi Wan- Sentinel Prime
    The Wampa- Chaos
    C3PO- Perceptor

    I feel like Sixshot really would work as Boba Fett. I'm not sure why.

    Episode V: THE DECEPTICONS STRIKE BACK
    It is a dark time for the Autobots. Although Unicron has been destroyed, Decepticon troops have driven the Autobot forces from their hidden base and pursued them across the galaxy. Evading the dreaded Decepticon Starfleet, a group of Autobots led by Hot Rod have established a new secret base on the remote ice world of Blizzard Planet. The evil lord Nemesis Prime, obsessed with finding young Hot Rod, has dispatched thousands of autoscouts into the far reaches of space....


    What about Lockdown?

    Transformers Star Wars
    Episode VI: RETURN OF THE PRIMES
    Hot Rod has returned to his home planet of Cybertron in an attempt to rescue his friend Springer from the clutches of the vile gangster Alpha Quintesson. Little does Hot Rod know that the Decepticons had secretly begun construction on a new armored space station even more powerful than the first dreaded Unicron. When completed, this ultimate weapon would spell certain doom for the small band of Autobots struggling to restore freedom to the galaxy...

    Rodimus Prime has vanished.
    In his absence, the sinister
    PREDACONS have risen from

    Rodimus, the last Prime,
    has been destroyed.

    With the support of the
    MAXIMALS, General Arcee
    leads a brave RESISTANCE.
    She is desperate to find her
    brother Rodimus and gain his
    help in restoring peace
    and justice to the galaxy.

    Arcee has sent her most daring
    pilot on a secret mission
    to Athenia, where an old ally
    has discovered a clue to
    Rodimus' whereabouts....

    Transformers Star Wars:

    The PREDACONS reign.
    Having decimated the peaceful

    control of the galaxy.

    Only General Arcee's
    band of MAXIMAL fighters
    stand against the rising
    tyranny, certain that PrimeMaster Rodimus Prime will
    return and restore a spark of
    hope to the fight.

    But the Maximals been
    exposed. As the Predacons
    speed toward the rebel base,
    the brave heroes mount a
    desperate escape....

    Transformers Star Wars:
    Episode IX: THE RISE OF RODIMUS

    The dead speak! The galaxy has heard a mysterious
    broadcast, a threat of REVENGE in the sinister voice of
    the late MEGATRONUS.

    GENERAL ARCEE dispatches secret agents to gather
    intelligence, while WINDBLADE, the last hope of the Primes, trains
    for battle against the diabolical PREDACONS.

    Meanwhile, Supreme Leader RODIMUS UNICRONUS rages in search of the
    phantom Prime, determined to destroy any threat to his
    power....

    I like 98% of your casting with the exceptions Megatron as Count Dooku and Soundwave/Soundblaster being Jango/Boba Fett
    Personally I think Megatron would make a much better Darth Maul especially with Maul's depiction in the Clone Wars series and have either Nova or Zeta Prime as Count Dooku
    and have Sixshot as Jango Fett and Quickswitch as Boba Fett now I can hear people Call out "What about Lockdown" just keep reading and find out
    Also have the Quintesons be the Hutts

    Some additions from the Clone Wars Series because why only recast with the film

    Flareup - Ahsoka Tano
    Lockdown - Cade Bain
    Autotroopers - Clone Troopers
    Prowl - Clone Commander Cody
    Jazz - Clone Captain Rex
    Brawn - Clone Commander Wolffe
    Whirl- Clone Commando Gregor
    Sharkticons/Alicons - Battle Droids
    Nightbird - Asajj Ventress
    MegaEmpress - Mother Talzin
    Galvatron - Savage Opress
    Overlord - General Grevious
    Minerva - Luminara Unduli
    Shadow Striker - Barriss Offee
    Moon Racer - Satine Kryze
    Cyclonus - Pre Vizsla
    Slipstream - Bo-Katan Kryze
    Seekers/Sweeps - Death Watch Madalorians
    Swindle - Hondo Ohnaka
    Flamewar - Aurra Sing

    That is all I can think of at the moment still working on who would best fill the roles of some of the Jedi Masters like Kit Fisto and Plo-Koon

    I'm going to cast the Transformers as Star Wars vehicles instead of Star Wars characters.

    Optimus Prime - The Millennium Falcon (red and blue version of course)
    Bumblebee - Anakin's Airspeeder (from Attack of the Clones)
    Jetfire - X-Wing Fighter
    Ironhide - Y-Wing Fighter
    Grimlock - Mechanical Rancor
    Sqweeks - Speeder Bike
    Metroplex - Mon Calamari Cruiser

    Megatron - AT-AT Walker
    Starscream - Tie Interceptor
    Seekers - Tie Fighters
    Soundwave - Comlink
    Shockwave - Miniaturized Death Star Tech
    Trypticon - Imperial Star Destroyer
    Unicron - Death Star

    Optimus Prime as Jinn Irsu (sp?)

    Megatron is Anakin Skywalker /Darth Vader (similar good to bad to redeemed in Prime) Galvatron could be Vader

    Alpha Trion is Obi Wan

    Cliff jumper is wedge Antilles

    Shockwave general Tarkin

    Emperor Palpatine is Unicron

    Tracks is Han Solo

    That's all I can come up with for now
