"So with a 2012 release date already hanging over their heads, the next question is a simple one: What would "Transformers 3" be about?
"I'd like to see some version of Galvatron," said Roberto Orci, who wrote the first two films with his partner Alex Kurtzman. "I would like to see Unicron, too, and really anything that ends in the word 'ron.' "
"Dinobots!" Orci added. "I think, eventually, the Dinobots are going to have to happen."
Although some fans remember the dinosaur-shaped Transformers as being a bit cheesy, Orci doesn't see it as an obstacle. "I didn't say it was going to be my problem [to overcome as a writer]," he laughed. "But as a fan, I would like to see some Dinobots." "
With many of us just full of anticipation about seeing Devastator on-screen the next movie is a little off our viewscreens. But it is fun to consider, who might be in the next, and what can they do to make the third movie even better.
Check out the Vector Sigma Database entries for the G1 Dinobots Grimlock, Slag, Swoop, Snarl, and Sludge, as well as, Galvatron, and Unicron!

Dinobots: with multiple, legitimate options to introduce them, bring them on. After seeing Ravage, getting them in that similar style might be really cool.
Galvatron: only if it's a reformat of Megatron and he retains that "screw loose", on-the-edge feel.
Unicron: only if it avoids the same type of letdown as FF2 with Galactus.

I'm with you. However, no Slag's created using Snarl's name, make him Snarl or call him something else (Hardtop, whatever).
I wouldn't mind at all seeing Grimlock, Snarl, and Swoop, but all five would be incredible, and if they did like 7 (I happen to like the Ankylosaurus from BW as well), I say go for it!
Hmm, or they can do the Dinobots Vs. Magmatron... That would be very interesting. Plus, BW fans might get on board.
I want Insecticons too. I mean real Insecticons not the 'bugs' we've seen in previews. Kickback!!!!

I know we all have our favorites and I would rather see them then these made up ones like Skids and Mudflap.

Seems to me I recall Mr. Orci state that he would not be involved in TF3, even if it did exist. Something about wanting to stretch his creative horizons. (That sound you hear is my rolling my eyes).
So, if he's not involved, he most likely isn't a very good source about the plot of the third? Is it likely he knows *anything* if he's already publicly stated he's officially OFF TF3?
Or did I miss it where he's suddenly back on this cash cow.

Where else would he go? Some other planet where Bay couldn't make lots of money off of him?Puck wrote:Unless the 2nd movie brings it up, Earth while having energy persay it isn't full of Energon. And now that the Allspark is pretty much gone, why WOULD Unicron show up? To follow a handful of robots who couldn't oppose him at all?

I dont know if Megatron survives the sequel but if he does it leaves open the change to Galvatron. If not, they could make him a separate character like IDW has done. He could always be a surviving member of the original 13.
As for the Dinobots I will say what I have always said about this issue and that if you can have a giant scorpion and a cyclops cat thing then you can have the Dinobots. The way IDW accounted for their dinosaur modes in present time makes a ton of sense especially when you consider the movie-universe has already established Transformers being on Earth in it's ancient past.
In regard to other characters possibly being in the third movie they should look whos powers would look cool on screen like Hound's holograms, Mirage's invisibility, Cliffjumper's glass gun, etc. They have already neutered Megatron's fusion cannon into another generic movieverse "pulse blast"

This fan for one. Dinobots are cheesy, that’s why they are absolutely perfect for a children’s program but are completely unsuitable for a live-action film that even wants to pretend it's serious. I can't see them being handled in anyway that wouldn’t come off as heavy handed.
I’d like to see more characterization for the Transformers already in the films instead of just slapping eight new ones down every time.
