    Paramount has tossed the idea of a G.I. Joe/TF movie around before in interviews. I’ll believe the veracity of this claim if and when I see something more concrete and verifiable.

    Absolutely.

    And hey, I totally get it. They go together like peanut butter and chocolate, but this isn't the first time there's been talk about a live action crossover between the two.

    I can see a transformers movie with Nest being replaced with GI joe, but I cant really see a full collab, or a joes movie with transformers, as the tf's are just too much better, like, they would destroy joes or cobra in seconds. I think It's probably a sequel to Rotb, with joes in it?

    LMFAO. :rolleyes:  plus there was that garbage about James Gunn wanting to co-opt the Hasbro brands into the DC universe... mmhmm...
    Assuming this movie goes well and the characters all survive, that would be pretty cool though. I guess they could set it in the late 90's? As long as they don't bring Bay back in thinking they "need his military connections to make it work". :rolleyes2  I hope the days of him manhandling this franchise are completely over...
    Edit* I would like to see Bay's take on Scarlett and Baroness though :lol  I can only imagine how they would end up, probably Scarlett with an unzipped flight jacket and bikini underneath or something like that :lol 

    The toy line would be outstanding, though. Of course Takara would probably jump in fully this time, and the 3.75 in scale vehicles would probably be fantastic.

    If we're adapting the Tom Scioli crossover comic, that would be epic and awesome.

    Anything else that's like what was in the IDW comics, please no.

    Yeah, Gunn has gone from being wanted to unwanted and back. It'd be nice if he could work on a TF film, but he's got DC now.

    Show us a successful GI Joe movie then we'll talk cross-over, m'okay?

    Cruel joke aside, I'm interested in knowing how much bigger the audience will be by putting these 2 franchises together? Would it spark excitement or consternation? Like, would the script be even more of a mess than the Bayverse TF movies (Oh god please don't, please don't, please don't) or more stupid than Snake Eyes as the writers are crushed by the weight of it all?

    TF X GI Joe toys though? The ones we got so far weren't great, but hell yeah keep them coming. But please, send them to Takara for the engineering...

    Oh my god, if they announced they were gonna adapt Tom Scioli's epic TF Vs. G.I. Joe I'd be so HERE for it.

    What\'s wrong with the GI Joe movies? I liked them very much. But I have never seen the GI Joe cartoon and know nothing about it, so maybe it has to do with that?

    I mean the first 3 TF movies kinda were that already. Heavy military focus on assisting the autobots sounds like GIJOE.

    God would I hate that. I much prefer Transformers that try to be sci-fi instead of superheroes

    Its been in the air for years, part of Hasbros MCU attempt but every time Gi Joe films tank they put it on the back burner again. They want sort of a live action version of the Revolution comic they did a couple years back but as I said it keeps getting shelved due to crappy box office figures outside of the Tf franchise.

    It'd be a riot if we finally lose that windbag and all of a sudden the movies begin to noticeably improve.
