    while listening to TeamHeadKick's awesome WFC transformers metal rap,naturally toughts of hard-ass transformers bashing each-other to bits came to mind.but,iv been thinking,while the movies took on a more sireous and up to date tone,they could still be watched by kids (tough the controller in hand would do no harm).what if there was a comic,or fan made thing or whatever,that took on a war-is-hell sireously hard ass realistic tone???WFC and FOC of course did a great job,but what about a seperate comic series with the same tone???id say a tv show with this tone probably wont happen,mainly because of course,while plenty of adults are huge fans,it is aimed mainly at kids.but comics these days are a more mature thing,so what do you think????????????

    The current crop of comics DO carry a very similar tone as the video games (by virtue of both being aimed to older consumers than the toys or cartoons)

    You're not going to do much more "dark" or "mature" than the comics have been since Dreamwave (and later, IDW) took them over.

    "hardcore-ass" is my new favourite phrase.

    Also, the comics already do basically what you described. Serious analysis of not just the war, but of their society and post-war life. And it can get pretty violent. Robot-blood and dismemberment is frequent at times.

    May I direct you towards Last Stand of the Wreckers...

    Last stand of the wreckers.
    It is(most likely)the most violent transformers related thing of all time, lol. Also it's a great read :)

    This tells me you probably havn't read Eugenesis, Roberts unofficial TF novel that he wrote before LSotW and MtMtE. It makes Wreckers look like an episode of the Superfriends.


    -ZacWilliam, I know it's unofficial, but damn is it dark.

    And some of us haven't even watched 1986's TF:TM yet, and still people keep spoiling Optimus Prime's death.

    What's the statute of limitations on spoilers, anyway? Is a year a good ballpark?

    That's a good question. In the Wiigii! channel and at TFWiki, it's a month; The Fuselage, the official Lost message board, had a "as soon as an episode has aired on US television, it's no longer a spoiler". TV Tropes still hides plot twists for stories that are several decades (!) old, because there will always be someone who hasn't seen it yet.

    o:

    People will claim that the ongoing MTMTE and RID series from IDW are exactly what you are looking for, but what you really want is the Kiss Play Position manga.

    Rosanna is one hardcore-ass mofo n desu.

    I'm tempted to say that Kiss Players isn't " hardcore-ass" in the way you're thinking, but then again, that was the manga that put the Legion into the minds of TF fans everywhere (also, I haven't actually read it, so I don't know too much about it).
