    Listen, if we're ever going to have a live action Transformers crossover it's gotta be someone worth redemption. Someone who's been out of the light for such a long time they've almost been forgotten.

    Zybots! They've got heart.

    I’m taking this with a grain of salt because while Dainel RPK is reliable, not all of is Patron stuff is 100% true. Like that live action TF show info. We haven’t heard a thing since his “report”

    I'd absolutely take an adaptation of the amazingly weird Sicoli miniseries.

    A version based on the Jae Lee WWII version could be fun too.

    -ZacWilliam, I'll believe it's happening when it's announced AND filming has begun but it's not an idea that doesn't have at least some potential.

    They'd fit together fine. It's basically the live action films but replace NEST with Joes.

    It's easy enough to do. Replace nest/cemetary wind with the Joe's and cobra

    Now THAT Would be a trip. A stand-alone animated feature just crossing over the Sunbow TF and G.I. Joe shows, that'd be fun as hell.

    Yeah the Scioli standalone doesn't feel like it'd work as a film to me, it's a comic tribute and homage.

    And yes, that Hasbro Toy Universe just didn't work.

    You know, that was hilarious, but the bigger thought I just had...stop motion animation the whole way.

    That would be unique and would stick out

    Oh they're absolutely positively definitively doing a GI Joe x Transformers crossover next if ROTB doesn't hit the mark.

    What would you expect in case ROTB bombs? A clean reboot with new producers and more respect for the source material? In this lifetime? Hahahah

    nothing spells "SUCCESS!" like anchoring a dead movie franchise to a dying movie franchise.

    This is like the cinematic equivalent of reopening ToysRUs in Macys.

    true... but as far as sci-fi goes, I disliked the way Bay tried to make them basically "aliens" and/or "predator"--especially in the case of the Decepticons...
    but yeah, I remember that crossover Marvel comic back in the 80's where they met black suit Spider-Man and I thought it was dumb then, & think it's dumb now... completely different power levels/"worlds" and it would ruin/undermine Transformers if Superman is out there picking Optimus up with one hand making him look like a weak chump.

    Yeah five years ago we were supposed to get the entire Hasbro Cinematic Universe. Didn't happen.

    On a side note, this is from Patreon? People actually paid money for this clickbait?

    Only interested if the big finally is Optimus ripping the head off Cobra Commander. It is par for the course on live action Optimus after all.

    I realize this concept is perpetually on the table for obvious reasons, but I hope it never moves forward. Let’s keep these universes separate and focus on making quality films for both franchises.

    This seems like it’s more speculation than fact right now, and I hope it stays that way.
