In "Beat Wars" that is set in the future of the Transformers cartoon, the robots transform into biotic forms instead of machines. So they use beast scanners to detect DNA that is compatible with them in order to transform.
That would be cool. Despite that Taraka had done a Japanese exclusive line of certain Disney characters as Transformers including Buzz. And I also herd that there's also gonna be a crossover with Neon Genesis Evangelion.
