    I was quite pleased with Bumblebee and now ROTB getting away from jacking off the US military, a whole movie about it would suck shit.

    I don\'t know G.I. Joe well but I\'m pretty sure the military in TF 1-3 is close enough. The only difference is there\'s no soldiers that are  like G.I. Joe charecters and the name of the military unit.

    Man talked about flying for centuries and it didn’t happen… But then it did and we’ve never looked back. Much like that motorized box kite at Kitty Hawk, this may well get off the ground someday.

    Sounds like a terrible idea. GI Joe is a cold as fuck franchise right now and none of it's movies performed well, Transformers is trying to not go cold right now, putting a hasbeen with a neverwas in a crossover is just asking for trouble.

    Hol on, the first 3 movies literally are GI Joe crossover movies: I mean, just change Lennox to duke, Epps to roadblock, Figueroa to idk, tunnel rat or ripcord, Donnelly to rock and roll the base commander to hawk, Keller to Flagg make the f22 squadron the sky strikers, brawls tank mode called a MOBAT and that’s just a Gi Joe transformers crossover.
    Am I Right? All that needs to happen are name changes.

    Just as I read this, I pictured a mid-credits sequence in ROTB or something where military officials have a discussion about needing to beef up their forces so they can be in a better state to stand side-by-side with the Autobots.

    Cue this anonymous general (who has been seen throughout the movie, but has never been actively named) who suggests a merger between NEST and an overlooked team of special units that need some dusting off. The first two officials are interested and ask the general his name.

    The general responds "Colton. Joe Colton, at your service."

    One of the officials states, "Colton, eh? Good to know."

    Colton quips, "Nice attitude, soldier. Because knowing...is half the battle."

    (What went wrong with the Snake Eyes movie, anyway? I remember being cautiously optimistic for it.)

    We already saw what it'd look like with movies 1-3. Unless they don't completely butcher characters and don't make the military take away from the Transformers, it would suck. Seeing how Paramount doesn't have that fresh of faces and how badly Snake Eyes turned out, think it's easy to see that this would indeed suck.

    I think I'd enjoy a good Joe/Transformers crossover. Just don't think it's really in the bag. We don't have anyone up there good enough to make the merger of elements anything other than obnoxious.

    I would be totally down with a G.I. Joe\Transformers crossover film if they really leaned into the G.I. Joe aspects of it.

    To everyone that is saying that the first three movies essentially were G.I. Joe movies I have to ask a question.
    Are you familiar with G.I. Joe?
    G.I. Joe is more than just "The Army".

    The first three Michael Bay movies are heavily focused on the military, to be sure -but they are not G.I. Joe movies.
    There's no ninja, no Native Americans, no chick with a crossbow, no guy in a football jersey, no guy in a Hawaiian shirt -I could go on.
    The soldiers in the Michael Bay universe are just that: soldiers.

    The other thing that a true crossover would bring is Cobra, a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world.
    Not a single Transformers movie has had anything like Cobra in it.
    Imagine the cool wackiness that could ensue just from Cobra's presence.

    Why the hell haven’t they done that one yet. It’s such a low hanging fruit that no one can see it.

    Read some comics. That’s were they shine.

    It would have been cool if N.E.S.T. were the G.I. Joe back in 2009.

    Please God NO!!

    The transformers universe is too big to join another franchise, besides with Michael Bay we already saw soldiers being protagonists in transformers movies.

    Lorenzo di bonaventura... look at this:

    LOL I can see it now.

    Lorenzo: “See it’s incredibly hard to feature a character who cannot talk. I mean in the 40 years that Snake Eyes has been around in countless media, I just don’t understand how we can evoke how he is. It’s like I read the comics and saw nothing. Couldn’t hear him in the Sunbow cartoon so I had no idea what he was doing and why he was there. See the audience needs loud characters onscreen, so we are going to cast Pete Davidson as Polly the Parrot with an amplifier so he sounds different from Mirage. I mean, sure, our take on Bumblebee worked in 6 movies, but it’s just, you know, hey 2 giant cobras that can tell if you’re being honest work right? Work better than a mute main character? We also think the joe team should resemble the X-men from the 2000 movie. Nostalgia is a powerful thing and we absolutely think harkening back to the Rise of Cobra designs is moving the brand forward.

    And we will now feature John Cena’s Peacemaker as the new Snake Eyes, he will be loud talking and lead Ninja Force since you can’t see him.

    And don’t worry about Ray Park and Henry Golding because #multiverse”.

    Lord, the only thing that would make sense out of this would be to have Michael Bay direct GI Joe.

    The monkey paw is curling,
    I see a world with the Joe centric Transformers X-over, and a Live Action variation of the Gijoe Transformers X-over, but no Generations style Transformer Gijoe crossover.... PAIN.
