    If Transformers was rebooted would it benefit from having spin offs?

    Marvel have done a great job in creating separate stories for characters (or sub group) that eventually merge together to a finale like Avengers.

    In essence you could do this for :-

    *Headmasters

    Which would lead up to a final battle with Unicron?

    The problem with this though is that the Transformers have sorta always been together. Before the Avengers, even in comic form, the separate stories went on for years.

    The idea is that when needed, the Avengers "assemble" and then they go kick ass. They don't remain together after that. The Autobots and Decepticons would though.

    I mean, this might work for Beast Wars Tigatron. Maybe.

    A dinobots spin-off will destroy Jurassic World.

    You heard it here first, folks.

    Nope. As cool as the TF lore is I don't see there being enough characters like OP and BB to entertain audiences through various spinoffs.

    No it wouldn't. This franchise doesn't have the necessary structure to make spin-offs or singularly-focused movies work.

    Plus, as discussed in the Marvel thread, continuity isn't something Bayformers finds incredibly important, so the spinoffs would feel a tad empty if they didn't go anywhere.

    To be fair, OP did qualify the spin-off premise as being part of a rebooted movieverse.

    Tbh, I would love a film about Prime's space adventure.

    Might have forgotten that little aspect.

    Unless the spinoffs are going to be one off films I can't see budget allowing all the robots featured in the spinoffs to be on screen in one film.

    'The Wreckers' would have been a fantastic spin off.

    The Wreckers, Dinobots origin story spin-off, Nightbeat in a Noir style spin-off

    Couple of ideas come to mind. But nothing that would create series like Cap, IM, or Thor
