Want to know if I'm the only one who likes these Ideas.
1. SS 86 Voyager Blaster, and Soundwave effects, and a Miniature Blaster alt mode (no cassettes like the G1 Version)
2. So recently we got the First Titan Class Studio Series, and we may be getting a Commander class soon, so what about Legends class (Shut up the name Core class sucks, Legends class) Ramhorn and Steeljaw, Eject Vs Frenzy (Repackaging frenzy like old times), and Rewind vs Buzzsaw.
3. SS 86 Hound.
4. SS 86 Ironhide, Ratchet, Bumblebee, and Prowl (reason? Well Hasbro knows how much people liked them and selling them again will get them even more money).
5. Like I said last time these will get Hasbro more money because of their Popularity, SS 86 Thrust, Dirge, Ramjet, Thundercracker, and Skywarp.
6. These next two have very accurate alt modes in Siege, the Issue is just the Battle damage, I'm talking about Hasbro making a SS 86 Shockwave, and Springer.
7. SS 86 Insecticons three pack (I wanna say Deluxe but most likely it'd be a Voyager class)
8. SS 86 Brawn and Windcharger (Reasons? Because 1. They are the last two 1986 Autobots not announced, and 2. They both met their end in the 1986 movie.
Tell me what you think.
I have another fan series in the works along with many other projects that I have been working on. Can’t give much away but the setting of this show will be set in the future. Haven’t decided what year it will take place in.
The show will consist of 4 seasons with 26 episodes for each season.
The roster in my opinion is interesting. But I like the lineup I have so far.
The current title is called Transformers: Beyond. Might change it.
I will reveal it when my website is done which will be in 2023.
Can’t wait to show you guys.
Earth mode Mirage, and Maximal Grimlock!!!
There's also supposed to be a Earth mode Sideswipe and terrorsaur two pack, and the other lambos are supposed to come out too.

I made the arrival to earth theme from Transformers on an app called BandLab.
Please enjoy and let me know what you think!
The picture you see is just my avatar for the app. I wish I could keep it as a Transformers picture.
My suggestion is Transformers: Darkest Hour Reborn

When if you miss TF: Prime just see the meme
Hello, everyone. This is my first time making a post in the Transformers forum, so I decided to a post about Optimus, my favorite Transformers character ever. To be more specific, I want to talk about the movie version of Optimus.
Now, for better or worse, back when the movies were in full swing, Optimus' portrayal has been one of the most debated and argued-over topics in the history of Transformers. There are two firmly-entrenched sides, those who refuse to accept this isn't Optimus and can't be considered a valid interpretation of the character and those who think that this is genuinely Optimus and that he is valid interpretation of the character, not to mention all those people and fans somewhere in-between this debate and have probably become tired of it all.
Anyway, with the first generation of movies now over and Hasbro and Paramount going back to the drawing board to decide where do they want to take the Transformers movie series next, Transformers fans are left to debate the merits and flaws of the movies, and in this case, Optimus' portrayal. Whether you like this version of Optimus or not, and no matter how good your argument on defending/criticizing Optimus is, some people will never change their minds about this because, to be fair, I've read some really good arguments from both sides and I want to believe I've made some good arguments myself. till, people on both sides in the debate have never budged in their beliefs and neither have I, and this makes me believe that there isn't and there can never be a definitive answer about what an actual person named Optimus Prime living on planet Cybertron with his life experiences would have done in the same situations we saw in those movies because he's not actually real.
And yes, I realize that's obvious and I'm not trying to insult your intelligence by pointing it out or make myself sound like an idiot for figuring it out. Instead, I'm trying to highlight the fact that not only does Optimus himself not actually exist, which doesn't mean he isn't or can't be important (I'll write about that later), furthermore, every situation he finds himself in his contrived life or set up by a creator (be that a writer, a filmmaker or whatever); literally everything that has happened or will happen in his life is contrived.
There is no actual causation in fictional stories, only the illusion of it and it's the creator's job to mask that dirty little secret to the best of their ability. It's their job to feel that everything that happens is natural or organic, like it's happening in a completely linear fashion. Even though, oftentimes and usually, when you're creating a fictional story, you working in anything but a linear fashion. A lot of times, you know the end or at the very least a rough idea of where you wanna go with the story or what you want to say with your story before you even begin. In other words, you need to create a beginning and a middle that gets you to the end you want, and again, you need to deliver the illusion of actual causality and hide the fact that everything is indeed contrived.
And again, I know that I'm saying a lot of obvious things here, but sometimes, people kinda forget them and even if you work in a sort-of linear fashion when writing, even if you start with some characters and come up with something to happen to them, you have no idea on how you want the story to go, much less end, you're still the one making the choices for the character, even if you're making them based on how you think they would act and then deciding what happens to them as a result.
For example, when it comes to the Transformers movies and how Optimus was portrayed in them, Michael Bay and his creative team were faced with the question "why is Optimus on the run? Why are the Autobots getting hunted down by the humans they swore to protect?" and I'm assuming this is how they approached and went on about it, but they then decided on what would make for the most interesting story, in their opinion at least, is that humans have lost confidence in the Autobots' ability to protect them and now consider them no different from the Decepticons, something that Optimus understandably considered a betrayal because he and the Autobots have sacrificed their own brethren and homeworld to protect humanity. Then, Bay and his creative team would have to come up with a situation that would make Optimus change his mind and do something heroic again.
So, what it all comes down to is whether you agree or not something like that would be a believable or organic scenario for Optimus to experience and whether or not you agree his reactions to that scenario are understandable. While we can certainly debate it, and we do, it is impossible for know for certain because, again, he's not real and every single real person has different experiences and reactions in their lives. And though, sure, we could theoretically, through probably never answer this question, imagine what other versions of Optimus (G1, Animated, Aligned) would do if they experienced the exact same situations movie Optimus experienced and I think most of us would respect that answer, whatever it may be.
But still, we wouldn't have a 100% definitive answer because, it's still be an arbitrary decision made by the creators of those stories, not the reaction of a living person who, again, lived a life like movie Optimus had and/or had the limits or mental fortitude he may or may not have.
And look, we can never know for certain how someone would react to something until they actually face it or know would someone named Optimus Prime would have reacted to those experiences, contrived or not, because there are those in the real world who come out bold and strong, like they're full of courage and ready for anything, but then give up and then turn their backs on everything for the smallest of setbacks or the first hint of danger. There are way too many examples of people you'd never think they'd give up and over things that some would consider minor obstacles at best. But there are also examples in the opposite direction. There are people perceived as weak or go through awful tragedies and come out on the other side somehow stronger and wiser for them; tragedies that, by all rights, no one should have to deal with even though, yes, one universal truth of life is that we will all face adversity or tragedy or loss. It's just part of the deal, which is why Optimus Prime can be and is so important to me, for many different reasons.
Because of how he persevered, fictional character or not, shows us that we, too, can persevere through our own trials in our time, and sure, some people, myself included, can and do love Optimus in these movies because, to us, he feels very human. He think he had a very human response or a very genuine reaction to his experiences, and for some, he might remind them of how they went through or got through some struggles of their own or some dark times.
But others hated him that way because they never wanted him, or Transformers itself, to be an entirely accurate reflection of humanity or us as individuals, but rather they see Optimus or want to see Optimus as some sort of ideal that represents the best we could potentially be, one that might be forever out of reach, but one striving for, nonetheless; which, no, isn't to say they didn't want Optimus to be perfect or god-like and I see people saying that all the time. They didn't want a perfect and flawless Optimus to always save the day, to always have the answers and to never show any emotion beyond eagerness to do the right thing. In reality, they just wanted an Optimus that was, yes, maybe a little bit more powerful than what we're used to, but wanted an Optimus that didn't give up and thus betray the ideal they placed upon him and believed in.
They would have been absolutely okay with Optimus facing new struggles, even failing to some degree, but they still wanted him to embody this belief that there are those among us who simply do not break or give up no matter what, that they would always fight and find some way to overcome and that maybe, just maybe, we can be like that, too; that the impossible in our lives might just become possible.
But to see Optimus fail and give up because of it is a reminder of our fragility as humans, that some things might just be impossible to overcome or achieve, no matter how hard we try or fight for it, which is, again, not why they watch Transformers. They don't want to be reminded of their past or potential failures but instead, they want to be dared to dream about what could be, what could they accomplish.
And look, whether you love or hate the way Optimus was portrayed in these movies, that's perfectly fine, I have no problem with that. It's okay to disagree about something and to discuss as rational human beings, even in the end, all we accomplish is agreeing to disagree, and I'm not trying to say that you're pessimistic if you like these movies or you're overly optimistic if you don't. My message here is that was really to say that we all look at things and see them and, ultimately think of them and treat them, differently, not to mention we can all want something different out of the very same thing and to each their own when it comes to Transformers and what it does or doesn't mean to them and it can be as important or unimportant to you as you want it to be and there's really no reason to fight over it or make fun of others who are passionate about it nor should we be angry or attacking others over for the actions of a fictional character, especially when you have to keep in mind that, it is all just a series of fictional contrivances conjured up in the imaginations of writers.
That doesn't mean, that for fun or for the sake of a good and spirited debate, that you can't treat Transformers as some sort of documentary about the lives of alien robots fighting a war or the characters or events are real or actually happened, which is something I encourage. I love treating these characters and stories as if they were real and talk and think about them as if these characters are real people and did perform these events. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't get emotional over the stories Transformers tells. If anything, that goes to show how important and powerful storytelling can be when it's done right. We can literally be influenced and inspired by stories made up by other people. We can want to do better and be better in the real world because of fictional characters like Optimus Prime and, really, there are few things greater or more important that we can do as people than to help or inspire those around us.
Well, that's all I have for you this time, now it's your turn to tell me what do you think about Optimus in the movie saga. This meant to be friendly discussion, so please be polite and argue your points in a civilized manner. We are all Transformers fans, we just see things differently. Posting comments on this website doesn't make my opinions greater and more valid than yours and I'm just glad I have the privilege and the opportunity to share my opinions with you. So, leave a comment below and thanks for your time.

What are your favorite fights from the show?
Here's what I think happened to the Aligned Warpath after FOC.
So if you didn't know in the Aligned continuity, the loud blasts of Warpaths canon made him partly deaf, overtime it probably got worse and worse making him completely deaf, but while he was on Cybertron, the Dinobots and the others, probably helped him escape, but here's the issue, he could still be alive in stasis, or he could've been hunted down and wouldn't have even known it because he was deaf.
Rules: 3 on 3 fights stage will give you a power boost and transformation is allowed and every time your 3 characters are defeated you have to pick new 3 characters i have to too
