    im thinking transformers cybertron animated and rid might go well with that kind of epic rock opera music as all 3 happen to be influenced by anime over time

    First off, if you want some good rock opera, go with Nightwish or maybe Within Temptation. This Gurren Lagann opening sounds like J-Pop

    I don't think Transformers really go with this song to be honest, but that's just me.

    I love Gurren Lagann and its music, but I don't know about having that series' kind of songs in a Transformers show (even though, of course, many of them are anime or have anime roots).

    And when I read the words "rock opera music" in the thread title, I did think of the group Nightwish - and how I just find their sound TERRIBLE for some reason. The only time I ever listened to them was when I was riding shotgun in my (at the time) girlfriend's car one time a few years ago, and I quickly went into a thousand-yard stare from not enjoying it. It was an awful beginning of an unhappy night for me.

    ^Sorry for that kind of mini-rant, but if Nightwish is a very good example of rock opera, then I DO NOT enjoy rock opera.^

    I've always wanted a scene with Shockwave, and dramatic 80's organs playing... He just feels like a Count. And it is a shame that he is usually shown in this mediocre light, and not as the mad scientist that he really is.

    Personally, I feel that shockwave should be given a lair somewhat laid out like SG Alpha Trion. But, Neat and tidy... Like a mixture of Leatherface, and SG Alpha Trion. With OCD for flavour.

    Like, if any Transformer needs a spotlight, it is that guy. But anywhore.

    As for other Transformers that need epic music? Possibly the Combiners... But not epic in the sense of operatics, but more so power ballads.
