Ah, okay, so the "sadistic SG Autobots" are just following the canon then. I agree that SG Autobots shouldn't be exactly like the canon Decepticons in terms of personality. What I meant by "making them like the canon Decepticons" was making them the same level of evil, not "EVIL TO THE MAAAAAAX". What I find interesting about the idea of SG is seeing how a character might be changed to make them evil / good. Some might be the opposite of their normal counterparts, others will be very similar but their motivation is warped so that now they're evil instead of good (or vice versa) . . . You don't have to have Autobots being the most sadistic beings in the galaxy for that. As far as the alt modes, I prefer that the SG bots have the same alt modes as their regular counterparts.
