Crossover you'd love to see?

Crossover you'd love to see?

Postby Kanyon » Fri Jul 27, 2012 6:12 pm

Been a long time since I have created a topic (can't even remember my last topic I made) This is a 'what kind of transformers crossover you know almost will never happen wish it would'? For me, I'm a huge Batman nerd/fan so I'd love to see some of the Bat-vehicles transform. Not just from the Nolan movies but from the others too. Maybe not even just Batman but DC-verse too?

Aquaman/Seaspray?
Superman/Optimus Prime? (Same colors!)
Batman/??

Knight Rider. KIT (the name of the car) could transform into a big bot. That would be awesome. He'd probably not be any particular TF character though (maybe Tracks if you don't mind the color being black instead of blue). Heck, Alternity Ravage almost pulls off the Knight Rider look, although he's a Corvette.

Of course, GI Joe. The Starscream exclusive from last year and this year's Shockwave exlcusive really whet the fans' appetites. If they basically just scaled up the Human Alliance concept so that the vehicles were larger (and transforming versions of actual GI Joe vehicles) and included actual Joes which could fit inside of them, they would sell like hotcakes and probably resurrect one of Hasbro's weaker franchises (though the new Joe movie may do that anyway as might Renegades if it ever continues).

Haven't we had enough issues with Black Tracks this year? ;)

I could dig a Batman crossover; in fact I'd love to see the Nolan-Batman Batmobile and Bat-wing-copter-thing from the third movie in a crossovers line.

Also, don't sully Seaspray's good name by associating him with Aquaman. xD

Ahem...

The obvious is TF / GI Joe (transforming GI Joe vehicles into TF characters).

I also wouldn't mind seeing a crossover of TF with Battlestar Galactica... the Aerialbots as Vipers, the Seekers as Cylon Raiders, and such. Optimus Prime as a Battlestar, Megatron as a BaseStar. That sort of thing. :D

You mean like how he (well K.A.R.R. actually) did in the updated series a few years ago?

Personally ... crossovers suck.

Crossovers are such a painfull pill for me to swallow. In fact....i spit them out in disgust. I loath them.

But for sake of answering the question....MOTU and TF's. :SICK:

What a gastly concept i agree, but i'd fancy a gander at the abomination that would be created from such a union.

I didn't see the updated series.

I agree, I don't really do crossovers (though a well done GI Joe crossover might convince me otherwise).

That's the stuff! As long as they just made cool robots instead of trying to make them look like characters it could be cool. If it turned out like Star Wars and Marvel it would just be awful.

Those were beyond awful. It just doesn't make sense, having the Marvel and SW characters transform into vehicles.

Personally, I'd go for a M.A.S.K crossover. Two of my favorite childhood franchises in one. Now that would be awesome. 8)

Considering the size of that ship, the bot mode would be at least the size of Metroplex.

Which isn't a bad thing...

What I'd like to see:

:DEVIL: A Batmobile that transform into Batman. Will never happen because DC. Sigh...

:COBRA: GI-JOE VS Transformers. The transforming vehicles should be compatible with actual Joes. However, they would be expensive as hell because they will all be leader, supreme, and ultimate class as the minimum. The most logical and feasable route will be to take the actual Joe vehicles and the Joes themselves and scale everything down to Human Alliance size. With tiny guns for the tiny Joes.

:CROW: Universal monsters. Kinda like Beast Wars. The Werewolf that change into a wolf, Dracula that change into a bat, ect...

:POWERPUFF: Finally, another Beast Wars. My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. I want a bot Pinkie Pie to put next to Megatron!

Maybe. But as far as I know, they were never made in toy form. So, why not?

It's states it down t the bottom. Legal issues with anything not written by somebody long dead. And there were a few gems from the SW crossovers. Most of the issues came from trying (poorly) to over-robotisize the mech's heads. It lead to awful head sculpts... But the scout-sized Y-wing Anakin looks great, the Darth Vaders looks good (but that one's hard to screw up :P), and Han and Chewie were a pleasant surprise. The Marvel ones just suffer from god-awful engineering, they (mostly) look between decent and good.

I would love Halo vehicles that transform into transformers characters. Just think of a warpath that turns into a unsc scorpion, Wheelie as a mongoose, the seekers from the banshee.

Also love the Knight Rider idea.

1) He basically already does, but I'd love a redeco/remold (perhaps with some 5mm holes instead of 3mm bars?)
2) Wheelie would make a wonderful Mongoose!
3) Seekers as Banshees? Yes please!
4) It would make sense, make it happen.

I honestly wouldn't mind something turning into a Master Chief-mech. I can imagine it wouldn't be completely out of the question in-universe, lol. Perhaps it could be something like a more polised version of Dotm HA Thunderhead's powered armor mode, and be less "I'm a giant robot that looks like MC" and more "I could ACTUALLY, REASONABLY EXIST in-fiction."

Mostly, TF crossovers have been explorations into the realm of FAIL. Starwars...Marvel...they all kinda sucked, although I have seen a few people do decent repaints of Marvel bots into classic TF characters.

The G.I. Joe crossover could be done RIGHT and manage at the same time to make HUGE bank for hasbron't and provide us with cool toys to fill another nostalgia niche. But I dont just want H.I.S.S. tanks painted like Shockwave or jets painted like Starscream...like a previous posted mentioned the vehicles should actually TRANSFORM into robots...at the same time being able to house actual Joe figures inside.

Think of something like the old M.A.S.K. toys, except instead of dual vehicle modes it would be vehicle/robot modes. Imagine how huge and awesome a Superion would be made of five G.I. Joe-sized jets, each with a pilot inside (reminiscent of Voltron). Or a giant Terrordome that transformed into a Tripticon-like monster.

So much awesome, so many possibilities...

The big thing with cross-overs is they always need to make the robot look like a character. Some come out ok, some just look horrid. Star wars transformers sometimes interest me, but, they've never really sold me.

Doing marvel would be more interesting to me if they turned into marvel vehicles and not marvel characters. Just unique robot modes. Like the x-men's jet, or SHIELD's helicarrier, or the fantasticar
