If Tron: Legacy can create a world in CGI; I'm sure that they will have no problem with making Cybertron. And I think it would be awesome if we get a prequel that is based on Cybertron, but I think that we won't get to see it in a live action is because they are doing all of this Cybertron based stuff with the Prime universe + War for Cybertron/Exodus/Exiles continuities.
It's been mentioned that CGI worlds can and have been done several times. Yeah, but they look nice. Cybertron is a farcry from the visually pleasing worlds of Tron, Avatar, Star Wars. Making CGI visuals isn't the issue I brought up, it was the look of Cybertron. The movies have shown them, and while it's kinda cool for a few seconds or minutes it won't work for a theatrical 2 hour movie (more than that since it would be 4 and 5 back to back). Bayverse Cybertron is dark, gritty, torn, and full of shifting steel structures. The same can be said of the protoform robots which from what we've seen would be hard to tell apart. It's likely to be mostly fans that would put up with that. And another issue besides the visuals being too dark, cold, gritty, and probably confusing, is language. We're to assume all cybertronian speech is cybertronian, but the audience hears it in english.
Hmm a sequel in CT would be: Somehow the Autobots get a hold of some other tech that lets them go back to what's left of CT to reclaim it while rebooting vector sigma so it can regenerate its other half (with the help of Jason Statham in a space suit.. lol). Would they keep their Earthly disguises or go back to protoform, or somewhere in between? Sounds kinda badass I guess, but as I said it just strikes as fan service that would likely try to take itself serious. I actually wouldn't mind seeing that.. but I have no faith it would work as a mega blockbuster theatrical movie.
Sorry, if I veered off topic, but.. atleast I threw Jason in there.
