    Considering Hasbro owns the GoBot franchise, do you think we will see some of the GoBots origin ideas squeezed in. For those that don't know, the GoBots were originally organic but replaced their bodies with machines. While spoilerish, it is implied that the "creators" are of flesh material.

    Thoughts?

    Not sure what the GoBot origin was however Transformers is a copy/rip-off of GoBots so some elements may be incorporated.

    I believe their world was dying and and or exploded and they put their brains in the go-bot bodies. So each Gobot has an organic brain. I don't remember if it was war or natural disaster though that started the whole thing.

    Ok so after looking it up, the Renegades hit their world with a large asteroid and forced everyone in the robot bodies or else they would all go extinct. Both back stories focus on the over all blind destructiveness and greed of the evil faction destroying the homeworld, just one started as Organic and the other Technological. The Master Renegade (bad) and Last Engineer (good) were the two people who did the transplantations and then the focus of the series eventually revolved around finding them and trying to restore the planet, etc etc.

    I do wish Hasbro would do something truly nice with the whole Gobots IP, I don't understand why they piss it away, but that's a discussion for another place and time.

    I could see that happening since it was already hinted at in Spotlight: Nightbeat and related stories a few years back.

    I hope it is not.

    I like the naturally occurring cogs and gears idea from the first comic. It gives way to the possibility of a Primus (I prefer that origin, but I like metaphysical ideas). It also reminds me of the episode of Star Trek TNG when they found the living metal.

    I also like the Quintesson creation, because it gives way to the idea of the Ghost in the Machine concept. I was not very fond of the Quintessons themselves, but they grew on me. The idea of the Transformers being created as products that developed morals and consciousness through AI is pretty cool. It challenges the concept of what it means to be alive. That version was also borrowing heavily from Isaac Asimov's, "I Robot".

    Both the GoBots and Quint versions can be a reflection of Humanity. Which direction will lead to what outcome? The singularity is a real thing that is predicted to happen, so humans slowly implanting themselves with tech and becoming machines, or creating Artificial intelligence that will develop a consciousness and revolt are both actual possibilities. They may sound like science fiction, but are being debated in science today.
