    I tried searching but all I got was a mountain of threads about the Kiss Players toy line, and Teletraan-i didn't have much info either. I'm just interested to learn more about Transformers as a fan.

    I want to know what is the general consensus of the fandom is on Kiss Players, and possibly what the Japanese fans think of it as well. The article in Teletraan-i says:

    Well I'm disgusted at the thought of sexual imagery in Transformers... just.... NO. That's just my opinion. Again, I'm just a fan wanting to know more about the entire Transformers franchise and I don't know if this topic has been brought up far too many times.

    Tentacle rape = bad. That was a freaking tentacle, not a tongue. :/

    It was the hottest thing ever.








    Relax, I'm just kidding. :)  It was weird. But some nice Alternator/Binaltech figures came out of it.

    I loved them, I have all of them and never had a problem with them.

    I am a huge hentai fan though...

    I'm not refering to the toyline, just the fiction.

    I would have killed for a Legion with "action tongue" toy.

    Worse... it's a penis-tongue-tentacle! A ROBOT-penis-tongue-tentacle.

    Transformers paired with cute little miniskirted lolis in a pseudo-romantic context involving magic kissing power?

    That's a cultural thing.

    Transformers paired with cute little hypersexualized <strike> miniskirted </strike> naked and slimy lolis in frequent degrading virtua-rape scenarios involving biomechanical robot-penis-tongue-tentacles... ?

    Uh... that's cultural too. A deranged, juvenile, perverse, grotesque, emotionally-stunted subculture that in most quarters would be viewed as barely above pond scum.

    There's my view. :D

    Anyone who calls it a "cultural" thing needs to realize this:

    Japanese Transfans were every bit as horrified by Kiss Players as we were.

    If American Transformers suddenly had a line where Transformers would get power-ups by, say... licking a woman's feet or smelling her shoes... would we honestly say "Relax, it's just a cultural thing over here" just because there are a strong number of people with foot fetishes?
