    I Think the next Collaboration should be Transformers and Halo. Here is why I think it should be
    1. Halo has huge range of Vehicles like the M12 FAV Warthog "Puma"
    2. Great Stories that can easily be adoptable for both Franchises
    and
    3.They Can Make Warthog a Headmaster and have Master Chief the Partner

    Halo is my favorite franchise of all time. I support this.

    It should have the prime aesthetic. Also a scarab should be a titan or commander class figure.

    Not happening, unfortunately, because most of the modern crossovers have been from Universal/Paramount movie properties. Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Jurassic Park/World, Top Gun, really the only exception I can think of is X-Panse who might have been riding the coattails of license agreements from the SUPER old Marvel Crossovers line from the mid 2000s.

    No it shouldn’t. Halo’s vehicles are too distinct for Prime’s aesthetic where the alt mode are usually mass shifted and split into very small parts to make layered armour plates. The cartoony faces would also clash with the realistic style of Halo.

    You’d want something grittier and more rugged, almost like UT, where the identifiable elements of the vehicles make up focal points in robot mode. Stuff like the Warthog’s angled hood and heavy tires, the Ghost’s “wings,” the Scorpions individual tread pods, etc.

    A Halo crossover could really work if the Covenant tried to indoctrinate the Transformers and Megatron feigned belief in the Forerunners to gain access to all their massive energy reserves, while the Autobots of course fight alongside the humans. Then you could have crazy alt mode choices, like Optimus as a Kodiak, or Megatron as a Wraith. Maybe even have both sides have opposite numbers infiltrate the other. Halo has so many cool and unique vehicles across all the different games (especially Halo Wars 1 & 2) that there’s all kinds of opportunities.

    It’s never gonna happen but it sure is a cool idea.

    Why wouldn’t it go with Halo’s own style?

    Anything involving cool vehicles/tech/possibly space can cross over with Transformers.

    I'd love to see a Halo x Transformers crossover, Halo has so many iconic vehicles and making a Transformers figure of the warthog, the pelican, or the scorpion tank would be amazing.

    Just wanted to follow this up as a chance to show off two of my tattoos.

    To remain on topic, I would go for anything.

    But to be honest, it'd be amazing to have a Requiem figure that turned into The Didact, or a Guardian that turned into Warden Eternal!

    I love both properties, but I don't think any of Halos vehicles would get me really excited as Transformers. Megatron as the magnum maybe?

    They Did Transformers X Star Wars a while back why not with Halo too or even other properties as long Hasbro as the rights to that property they can do a crossover with I think thats why they did Back to the Future X men and now Jurassic Park

    I highly support this. The funny thing is I collect megablocks/construcxs and most of my figures are from halo. There like almost the perfect size and pair nicely with certain bots.

    I think a scorpion or banshee transformer would be cool but the warthog is iconic

    Personally, I don't like crossovers, but y'all knock yourselves out. I would regret the wasted resources, but nothing says I would have to invest in such a fictional union. I would rather money be put into a new Transformers story and toyline that (a) built upon the G1 universe but (b) didn't suck. These WFC figures have been fun, but I'm starting to tire of endless G1 repeats and the Netflix media is mediocre at its absolute best, and a dumpster fire at worst.

    I enjoy both TFs and Halo, but I think they're better when segregated.
