    It'd probably be boring.

    Dull and formulaic, with 'STEPHEN KING' occupying at least half the cover.

    Bumblebee, Cosmo, Beachcomber and Brawn would follow a railroad to go take a gander at the young dead autobot.

    Fortress Maximus would now be named Castle Rock.

    And kid characters would end up growing up and having special powers. So... Kicker.

    Everything would happen in Maine, and the story would be full of stock characters. The resolution would be absurdly dumb.

    It was a quiet and peaceful day in Iacon.

    And then Shockwave came.

    Optimus would run over a little kid while singing "Sheena is a Punk Rocker."
    "My bad!"

    Unless it was set in a prison in which case it would be surprisingly good.
