    The only way I could see Transformers working as a TV movie/or show would be to focus on smaller-size Transformers, and use practical props/puppets, like they did with Sqweeks. (Which I'd actually love to see...let's bring back that practical filmmaking).

    But if we're talking about a more traditional Transformers movie with Prime and Bumblebee and all, I don't think it's quite feasible at the moment. Transformers media isn't a guaranteed hit anymore. It would need to be up there with Marvel and Star Wars in terms of public relevancy. Otherwise it would be given a lower budget, and the effects would really suffer.

    I think it depends. It could serve as a start off for a TV series.

    If it works as a regular movie, then yeah.

    I do not think a live-action movie for TV would be very expensive at the same time they should make animated movies directly for TV or even for Netflix.

    If you’re willing to watch a Transformer series with only 5% Transformer screen time, then yeah.

    Who the hell watches TV anymore? It would be a streaming series or a direct to Netflix movie.

    Maybe in another 10-20 years, good looking TV CGI Transformers would be affordable enough to keep on screen as main characters without having them only show up for like 10 minutes.
