I know I've mentioned this in another thread in the past but with the new pics of TLK Hot Rod going on and the controversy of his design I've been meaning to talk about this for a while now. Am I the only one who feels that there are a couple of double standards going on when it comes to how some people bash the movies for not being true to the source material enough or at all due to them how different they are from G1 yet when other non G1 series do things differently from G1 not a lot of people seem to get mad and uptight about at least not as much. Like for example. People complain that Movie Optimus is a long nose truck and not a flat nose truck and that he should've been a flat nose instead yet G2 Optimus and Armada Optimus who came before him also had long nose trucks yet they don't seem to get hated on. People rip AOE Galvatron a new one for not resembling his G1 design and that he doesn't have his Unicron origin yet other versions of him don't exactly have that going on either with a few exceptions yet they never get hated. People give Movie Drift the stink eye for being a Samurai sterotype yet IDW Drift when he isn't written by James Roberts was even more so yet Movie Drift seems to get the most flak People rage on couple of characters that don't act or look like the G1 characters yet we got characters like TFA Prowl,TFP Breakdown,Armada Cyclonus,etc who are pretty much new characters compared to their G1 versions. People raged at the new direction that AOE and TLK are taking with the fantasy and knight element saying that it's straying from the fiction yet the fantasy elements and kngihts have been present in other Tf stories long before the movies came int play and adapted them. Those are just examples I've presented. I know not every fan thinks like this since every fan has different reasons for liking or disliking a different take on a character or element but still it just feels like the movie franchise as a whole seems to be the only target to be given flak for not being like G1 and that the others are given a free pass despite doing the same things the movies are doing. What do you guys think?
