    With apologies to Hasbro I am posting this thread to discuss the possibility of further sequels to be based on the current movie Predacons Rising to be aired on the Hub Network in three weeks. Although the movie does resolve certain plot points from the series Transformers Prime it leaves other important ones open:

    The Predacons have Risen. What does this mean for the future of Cybertronian society? What are Predakings ambitions? Will he attempt to co-exist with the other Cybertronians or will he attempt to form a dominant, Predacon-led society? Shockwave is still there, the cloning lab is still there. The setup is obvious.

    Megatron has turned, but how far? The exorcising of Unicron from his spark has forced Megatron to reject at least part of the evil that motivated his fall, but how much? How far has he been turned and in which direction? He doesn't want to rule a destroyed Cybertron and won't conquer it by destructive means just to rule a wasteland but he still has ambitions for guiding its future that motivated his transition into the political arena and is still as flawed as everyone else. Will he once again lead the cause for a just future society on Cybertron.

    The Age of Primes has come to an end. What society will they now form and who will lead? Will they form a high council and attempt to recreate The Golden Age? If so, what about the inequalities that existed then? Will Megatron need to step forward and lead a second reform?

    Airachnid and her horde of infected Insecti-zombies might still be out there. If she or one of them were to infect Primus then all would be lost.

    Unicron can still return at any time. Dark Energon still exists and so does his link to it. Anyone infected with it could still succumb tohis influence. That would include presumably Airachnid or even the corpse of CYLAS/Breakdown.

    And what the heck about Soundwave? He's just too important to just leave stranded in The Phantom Zone, c'mon Hasbro..

    Most Important Reason for a Sequel: Keep That !%!@#$!@ Voice Cast Together! I want all of them back again. You have your 65 episode TV series, Fine! There is no reason you couldn't transitionb this to a series of TV movies. In short, this movie provides a premise worth continuing.

    don't forget about the Dinobots and the handful of survivors they were guarding. those guys were still eking out an existance on dead cybertron before, and I'd love to see a Grimlock/Predaking throwdown

    ehh screw it dinobots probably died out for some unknown reason

    that's the excuse i'll make if they and every other cybertronian were reformatted on new cybertron (besides the main cast)

    I think the Beast Hunters comic will come up with some reason to have them off planet while all this is going down.

    Imagine the rage if Soundwave showed up and saved the day by bridging the Terrorcons into empty space.

    That would have been a brilliant deus ex machina.

    Yeah I honestly would like to see a sequel series following those ideas. Honestly it really feels like you can do anything with this set up.

    Agreed. We could have a show focused on Bumblebee's learning to be leader like in the RID comics from IDW,or one of the members of Prime like Magnus or Arcee leading their own team facing new factions that threaten them,

    Right in the last five minutes, with no prior foreshadowing.

    That would be the most epic trolling ever, by both the writers and Soundwave.

    This series could go on forever, it has the perfect cast of characters and so many plot points still have to be addressed. I just don't want this series to end! AHHHH! Lol

    Plus, there's the whole plot of Unit:E trying to defend the Earth without full-time Autobots. Maybe they could send both Knock Out and Ratchet to Earth? Both love the planet. Jack, Apex Miko and Raf are a good team that could take down Soundwave, but we could always explore how Unit: E tries to protect the Earth from rogue Decepticons. Plus there's Fowler and June's little romance thing, and Jack getting accustomed to it.

    If Unicron's sealing stopped the Terrorcon Predacons, would it also have stopped Airachnid and the Insecticons? I mean, just one turned Insecticon could easily infect the whole group of them, so they're all Terrorcons before long. Maybe they did all die off.

    Breakdown and Bulkhead's rivalry is yet to be explained, as is why the Nemesis wanted to collect the relics, unless it was being influenced by Unicron's will to eventually revive Cybertron so he could destroy Primus (something I had predicted a while back).

    I guess no series ever really ties everything up (though Avatar came close) with its' series finale. But that's alright in the end. More story to tell, I guess.

    I loved this shot.

    Predaking kind of owns the show with his one-liners.

    Don't try. That's Hasbro's 'aligned continuity', which isn't very aligned.


    So the loose ends are:

    Predaking's force
    Magnus' status
    Soundwave
    Shockwave
    Zombie Insecticons

    I doubt they'll get touched upon anytime soon.
