    Arcee wasn't really slimmed down. She's sill relatively the same size (galvatron was almost twice her size even in the flashbacks) she just sized down her shoulder pads. She wasn't particularly wider or more built up than she is now. Maybe she was thinner in the Milne design or on some covers, but not for a long time.

    [​IMG]

    Galvatron had magical evil powers when they needed the matrix to beat him.
    And she, Optimus and Soundwave all needed to team up to kill him, AND he's her brother who she knows well and has been fighting for millions of years.

    She specifically acknowledged her guilt and her rapport with Prowl was that he was trying to manipulate her while she was trying to change who she is and be LESS sarcastic and violent.

    Okay, bud.

    BONUS:
    She's very clearly set up as a friend and mentor to Aileron, which is who I was referring to with the "big sister" thing.

    She’s not my favourite character and I’ve always felt she’s been very overpowered but she’s far from my most disliked and there’s a long list of characters I’d like to see getting less attention than her....

    I'm not saying that I'm against strong women that are also maternal and have those nurturing instincts. What I'm trying to get at is that most of Arcee's stories at IDW have been good because of who she is and her origin. Arcee is the only character at IDW that has outgrown her original interpretation and has been the better for it. Yes, her initial origin was... not the greatest, but the stories that followed were really good.

    I realise I'm in the minority but it's Barber I wish was gone.

    He didn't know how to write Prowl after Roche's interesting new take on him.

    He made Thundercracker into a joke. I'm not a fan of dogs.

    He also has the uncanny knack for knowing which Transformers I hate and focussing on them: Rattrap, Alpha Trion, Kup, Wheeljack, Arcee, Pyra Magna and Jetfire.

    Also focusses too much on humans. Turned Blackrock into an unlikable Tony Stark.

    Don't like the T Bob looking drone either.

    The only thing I wish about Arcee is she went back to being salmon/red. Her look at the start of RID S2 was freaking aces.

    In the reboot I sincerely hope they go with a version closer to TF: Prime.
    The Furman "Forced gender reassignment" bit really needs to be discarded.

    Well clearly your entire line of thinking is invalid as doggos are a priori the best.

    About the time Optimus or Soundwave did. IDW is terrible at making their Transformers, well, transform...

    Don't know about Soundwave, but Optimus and Arcee last Transformed in OP #13/14 I think. So, November. Last arc.

    ... So six months ago? In a book about alien robots where the entire gimmick is that they... (wait for it) Transform? Yea, that's not a good thing.

    Bit by one as a kid? I have a buddy that's like that, he's terrified of large dogs. He wouldn't even come to my house back when I had a pitbull.

    Its been 4 issues dude. Arcee was in less than 10 pages in all four and Optimus spent one chained to a wall.
    This seems like a petty and pointless complaint, especially considering both characters in question have been transforming A LOT since earthfall. The only arc that both of them have not transformed on panel in was the one where neither of them were in the story at all.
