I was just talking with someone about the upcoming Transformers movie, and we were thinking there should be a Transformer with ninja skills. He could be all-black, with special stealth skills, and have fast fighting moves. He could throw explosive ninja stars. G.I. Joe had ninjas — Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow — and that was cool, so I think it would work for the Transformers.
Also, it would be neat if they enabled Optimus Prime to be able to do roundhouse kicks (a la Chuck Norris). To fit that into the story, the Autobots and Decepticons are both searching for a Chuck Norris upgrade package, which gives you crazy-cool fighting skills, then Optimus Prime ends up with it. I know this deviates from the canon of Transformers lore (the comics), but I think most fans would buy into it. (Besides, Michael Bay is already changing up the story so much, so they might as well make them even better.) Somebody should make this happen.
Somebody has thought of combining them before, as evidenced by this quote (sorry I don’t know who said it) :
The original theme song to The Transformers was actually “Chuck Norris — more than meets the eye, Chuck Norris — robot in disguise”, and starred Chuck Norris as a Texas Ranger who defended the earth from drug-dealing Decepticons and could turn into a pick-up. This was far too much awesome for a single show, however, so it was divided.
For a show it might be too much, yeah, but what about for a movie? Think about it…
