The crossover between G.I. Joe and Transformers has already been set up in Rise of the Beasts.  At the end of the film, the character Noah receives an offer to join the team and in a dramatic moment flips over a card revealing the G.I. Joe logo.  G.I. Joe and Transformers have crossed over many times before in comic books and toys, but this would be the first live action movie dedicated to such a team up.
