    I've read posts about how people hate anything new in Transformers. New Devastator toy? Yep. Animated? Yep. Plus people keep saying how horrible some of the repaints are today (like the yellow Rachet.) I'm getting tired of hearing all these Ruined Forever! types of comments. I find it interesting that, even though people said they hate Animated, they gave it a chance and liked it. Some stuff, I can agree on. I despise Professor Princess, and Animated can get pretty kid oriented. But it's a kid show!

    Some collectors don't like the style of Animated, but the show is TVy7 I believe. It is not a show just for older collectors. And about that yellow Rachet- I saw it at Target and it doesn't look half bad.

    I'm not mad at other fans or anything, I'm just tired of all the negative posts. And yes, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But when people start cutting down all the new comics, toys, and shows, it kinda makes people who actually like the way things are start to rethink their own opinions.

    Another point to be made is that fans tend to not like new TF series because it's not "G1." As much as I do love the original series, it had its own flaws. No, I'm not about to cut G1 down or tear it to shreds. I'm just saying that not everything has to be G1!


    That is all.

    Edit: Also, there was a thread pretty much exactly like this not too long ago:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/transformers-toy-discussion/197507-just-me.html

    and this quote of Sol Fury from that thread helps:

    I'm just saying people need to calm down. I WANT to hear what people have to say. I suppose that telling people to calm down and writing this is a bit counterproductive. But it's my opinion. By the way, thanks for not getting in a "tizzy" MushroomPrime.

    I can actually feel the calm before the you-know-what storm.

    people tend to say more about what they dont like than what they do like.

    Sounds pretty accurate. It's easier to look for faults than it is to find compliments.

    This.

    It's just the way it's going to be, not everybody will like everything new and there's always gonna be somebody saying why they don't like something.

    It's gonna really start up again with the new movie coming out, it's just a matter of ignoring the worst of it really.

    If people stop complaining when they don't like something, then how will we know the "compliments" we're supposed to try so hard to find are genuine?

    Personally, I like everything going on in TF now, except the "Black People Are HI-larious" jokes from the movie (Bay tends not to do black characters unless he can make them silly stereotypes).

    Not with you on this one. Honest discourse is positive.

    Interesting. You're basically saying that you can't have the good without the bad, right? I'm surprised no one's actually chewed my head of yet, but I'm guessing it'll come soon enough.

    About movie Rachet-the back fenders (or whatever they're called) keep falling off. Here's one instance where I think G1izing a toy is a good thing. I do know what I'm talking about, and I think that everyone does have a valid point. Just try to lower the negativity down a level. Sure, I don't like certain things, too, but some people really go overboard with their dissaproval. But I do agree with the statement that not everyone is gonna like everything.

    Hasbro just HAS to make a club/botcon exclusive of this. Priceless!

    I'd sign over rights for the idea to them if they were to make it some kind of store exclusive. Maybe a 2-pack with either an Autobot repaint/retool, or another Seeker repaint (Sunstorm anybody?). In fact there are plenty of my repaint/retool ideas I would be willing to sign over to Hasbro for their use. On the other hand I could somehow get hired by Hasbro to come up with repaint/retool ideas. Very unlikely, but one can always dream :D
