I'd rather legacy characters pushed to the back to allow new characters or lesser knowns to take the spotlight (burn suggested an idea like this a few pages ago). I think we've been spoiled with the development regarding megs so I'm willing to give him a bit of time off before we rush to "I'm evil!" with him.

Y'know, after nearly (or over?) a decade of G1 in IDW, I 'm thinking more and more that it could be great to have something fresh entirely, Unicron Trilogy style. Suddenly having new characterisations of everyone after so many years of development would be kinda jarring, but abandoning the "known" characters in favour of a totally fresh batch might actually help with that

^ and ^^, I like the sentiment and would personally also enjoy seeing that, but I don't feel like IDW would be super keen on taking that kind of risk without some complementary support through other toys/media from Hasbro.

Now, if they were to launch two books, I think there's room to experiment.

The first one is a 10-12 issue run for War for Cybertron: Siege. Advertise the toys, use the classic characters, but give that universe a proper story of its own rather than shoehorning the toy stuff in as was done in Combiner Wars. If successful, this could continue into the next phase or two of Hasbro's War for Cybertron run. Think Dreamwave Armada and Energon, ignoring DW's implosion which truncated Energon.

Then, for other parts of 2019, just run some 4-6 issue mini-series that take greater risks with new characters in a new continuity, maybe not even the same one! See what sticks, try out new creators (like the canceled before it started Roche-led Universe series would have done), and maybe eventually there's somethng that sticks and becomes more.

The more I think on it, the more I think they've got to go "safe" for awhile to make the license worth it. Doing that while leveraging current toys could help attract new readers, or bring back those that gave up at some point in the past 13 years. Say what you will about Combiner Wars, but that brought more casual interest than we've seen in a long while to IDW's run.

Motto: ""I WILL CUDDLE YOUR SOUL!!""
Weapon: Black Magic
i would like it if the showed the War from other POVs:

1 - a different area of the theater of war.
Like, the kajillion years
that OP
and Megs
and the boys were in stasis on Earth,
what was going on?
Who was fighting?
Where?
I would love to just move away from Bumblbees and Ironhides and Seekers and blahblah.

B) Before
Just some adventures in the mean streets of Kaon.
No war.
Just cops on the beat.

Third: Outliers.
Superheroes. Mutants?
A ragtag band of misfits
that fight crime or halt evil or champion the people (metal people).
Together they learn, grow and find that spark in their Sparks.

4th... there is no 4th.

"E" Pre-history
the beginning of "society"
& one bots search for something.
Something that will TRANSFORM himself
and thus CHANGE the world!

or
MAGIC,
SWORDS,
DRAGONBOTS,
OGRE-CONS,
DEMONS,
DUNGEONS,
KINGS,
QUESTS

last?
idk!
just something beyond the scope of
Big, red guy
Angry, silver, jerk
Yellow kid
Jet powered arse-hat

or
like DC ELSEWORLDS
Parallel dimensions
where things are somewhat the same,
yet,
completely different.


but
for the love of gods,
in the aspects of LOST LIGHT
(so you know IDW has it in them)
DO SOMETHING NEW!

Just realized I put this in the wrong thread so......




What I would like to see is a bit different than other wishes. I understand the burn out on G1 stories, but I would like to see a follow up on a long lost Dreamwave tease/promise.


It was in the cancelled main series, right as Sunstar was getting ready to blow up the ark. As the Autobots evacuate through a "backdoor", we see a familiar set of scavenged blast doors, with familiar markings........ from Beast Wars.





Yeah, I would like to see time travel fallout from the beast wars, maybe even with new Beast Wars stories.
Photobucket can die now.
