I've put up a list of my feelings in the "if you were busting to tell the moviekakers something,and then they asked you what direction you felt they should take something, what would you say?" thread.I won't repeat them (but if you check it, see 'On Directors', Sam & Carlys Baby,Optimus Primes' baby & gangs of young Autobots in a civilian Bot population,Keep Megz healing SLOWLY & 'Stay away from Unicron', all in the opening post).
New stuff now that we've seen 2 trailers:
*If the Ark animates in this film (Dotm), it'll be hard to stay away from Cybertron. Otherwise, it (repairing [or replacing] the Ark) can be a next-trilogy sub-plot driver.(Note that Optimus doesn't technically inherit the Ark if Sentinel survives, and the Wreckers are theoretically Earthbound unless it gets fixed or another ship arrives-assuming the comet-thing modes can't break orbit,that is).
*I'd hate to see it, but the military attempting to replicate TFs is logical progression (as would the fact that they would be slower and generally useless against Transformers).
*Cyber Planet Keys.Limited Energon supplies & guzzling bridges can keep the story centred on Earth but still expand the toy lines & mythos.
*Insecticons pick up Primes signal & invade Earth as a swarm(Energon!!).The Autobots fight them while Megz spends the Trilogy regaining power base.
*Megz,still in Vagrant mode,populates the Earth will Combaticons.They eventually sneak into the Earths entire military structure & hammer it when a certain command is given.The chaos is the entry window for some mega-bot (eg:Trypticon).The Autobots are forced to fight them alone(Blaster is in by now with his own miniBots to Shuriken them at Trypticon) but tougher Autobots are needed.Enter the Dinobots .THE ORIGINAL WAY.
*Mudflap & Skids say Michael Bay is a Dufus and they didn't get Rotf on screen.Michael Bay tries to kill them off,attacking them with 6 million Constructicons (and 1 Barricade) who all look the same and all died in the previous movie.The Autobots band around the twins.Will they survive? In the swirling chaos of battle, Megatron dives in and steals the fallens' face back from Optimus.What will the Autobots do now?
*Nemesis Prime, or Starscreams proper Seeker Squadron.I'd say all the plots re: TFs involvement with Pre-2007 Earth are done to death.So, objectives? Why, ENERGON, of course!
*Personal preferences: A plot device whereby Megz is still a vagrant and Starscream is still alone. Some event (a failed reactivation of Shockwave?An impact by both Trypticon and Fort Max? A freak Solar Storm?) results in an EMP blast shutting down the majority of the Autobots and Cons. For half a movie, there's a running pokemon-cassete-bot duel between Soundwave and Blaster/Broadblast, with Sam and Carly caught in the middle.
*More WARRIORS.Not Soldiers,Commandos,Wreckers,Mechtech or Elite Bluestreak look Bumblebee,but WARRIORS.Followd up beautifully with Prowl,Red Alert and Smokescreen to round out the attack ranges (Point blank,mediate,long).
*A trilogy long,Earth-wide,National treasure/Davinci code type quest based on fuzzy ancient records concerning the Cube/Allspark.Both Autobots and Deceps assume the final assembled relic is from the era of the 7 Primes and race for it,but discover instead the relic is a key to the tomb of TigerHawk(or some other non Cybertronian govt ambassador).He tells them that Earth was Quintesson territory which the 7 Primes won.Trilogy ends.New trilogy begins: Quintesson war, wherein the first Unicron Heralds also rock up to set up the next Trilogy(the preparation for the arrival of Unicron).
*A Highlander style mega battle between all the Combiners.Each Combiner who kills another gets all his parts.Jolt has an Electronic Nanovirus available to his Electrowhip fuel tanks that can de-magnetize a Combiner permanently,but if the combiner is too big,the required charge will drain Jolt of all his Life-force and kill him.
"Everyone has a hobby.Even people who say they don't still have one under another name.If we're sick,injured, we still go to it and get down to see how it is.If it needs something, we bring it,make sure the attention is perfect.It exercises our care and protection and gives us back philosophies.It's a living thing to us,and is the most perfect way to teach a young person how to be towards a living thing. It's something that should never be taken away."
