    Is it just me or has there been a recent insurgence of complaining in threads about almost evrey transformers line being relesed recently from powercore threads to classic figures apparentley not being acurate enough or the genral distaste that seems to appear whenever we get a repaint of anything. Honestly its really starting to bug me that we we get threads containing stuff like this when IMO hasbro is really doing well this year.

    The fandom's always been that way. It's the nature of the beast.

    I guess it's always been like that, but it has its ups and downs, depending on the amount of news that's coming our way.

    I must admit that it's somewhat pissing me off at the moment. There are alot of people with genuine concerns of course, but things like 'oh no, Wheeljack shouldn't be a remold of Tracks!' seriously have me rolling my eyes/scratching my head...sorry guys, I can't help it!

    It's common for any fandom though. It's a sign people care, which is a good thing I guess :)

    Transformers fans complain! And in other breaking news, the sky has been discovered to be blue, and studies prove the 100% of the population of the world today will someday die.

    Its not a transformer series without somebody complaining over something. Its almost like a right of passage at this point.

    It is a weekly cycle.

    1. Several complaining threads get made, usually by the same handful of people.

    2. The original poster goes way off topic and in the end completely contradicts what they initially had to say and then apologizes by explaining that they had a bad day and are now taking their medication.

    3. Several board members update their ignore list.

    4. A thread pops up and then proceeds to complain about complaining.

    5. Repeat all over again.


    After awhile you get used to it.

    All fans are going to be complaining about things they don't like. Not much you can do about it.

    I think it's pretty much always been that way. Most -if not all- fandoms like to complain about anything and everything new. We're no exception.
    I guess it's to keep the balance. We refuse to grow up by playing with -eh- collecting toys, watching cartoons and reading comic books ect. If we don't argue and complain about something like a group of old men and women, the universe would be out of balance.
    And then it would explode.
    It's true.
    And we really wouldn't want that to happen.

    Though while we're on the subject...
    I still think TF: Prime Soundwave is ugly...... :p 


    @Batman:
    :lol  That's it exactly!
    By now we should have a thread that complains about complainers complaining about complaining.
    ..................Wait. Did I get that right?

    ^ As others have said. This is nothing new. People on here will ALWAYS bitch and complain about EVERYTHING, and they are also extrmely DRAMATIC about it ("ruined my childhood"?!? Come on...). Just ignore it and don't get caught up in it.

    You want to see real complaining? Go onto the Movie Forum the day after the next live action TF film is released. It's awesome.

    Incessant whining on the internet? Hardly new.

    The only thing that really bothers me is that no one knows how to debate a topic or viewpoint. They just argue in circles trying to call the other person out as "wrong" without proving their point is "right" in any way. How this became a form of debate is beyond me.

    This is our fandom. I think I would be more afraid of the day when some new TF series comes out and EVERYONE agrees on it.

    For instance, I am not a fan of the Bayverse designs but many love them and it has brought many fans to our fold. I LOVE Beast Wars and I know there is the whole "Trukk not Monkky" clan out there. In the end I just accept that opinions are like A-holes...we all got one and we all think they all stink but our own.

    I think what you are witnessing is the fact that A LOT of news has been coming out recently so there is A LOT more for peopel to complain about.

    If you think this is bad just wait until TF : Prime comes in to full swing. I see all hell breaking loose when Toy pics and actually footage of the show appear.

    Thanx

    This is probably what bugs me the most as well. The incessant bitching and complaining and saying 'this sucks' but there's no really valid points or people state their opinion as fact and the world must agree with them or they'll fill that thread with the same "fact" over and over again.
