They have helped to establish a great lore and I don't think there's any point in trying to establish 2 new factions into the future. I hope the story of Optimus and the Autobots vs. Megatron and the Decepticons will be told for generations. This comparison may be a bit off, but it'd almost be like trying to get used to the attempts I've witnessed with many newer comic book characters. I think it takes a certain amount of the right x-factor or indescribable quality to garner fandom and genuine love for such fictitious characters.
It could, in theory, work. Look at Star Trek: The Next Generation, that's often viewed as superior to the original series. It's just the first time it was tried with Transformers, it went horribly, due to the people in charge not realizing the impact it would have, and also the aforementioned animation decline.
