    ...That we REALLY need to stop getting what we want?

    It caught my attention yesterday, that there are a few complaints from the fandom that have been addressed in the past. (I bought a Titanium) But what have we gotten from these complaints?

    1. Want die-cast toys. Check, we got that in the form of Titanium. And we complained about that. (Rightly, I don't think the die-cast added much to the toy, IMO)

    2. Adult-level stories. Check, we got Beast Machines. And not many people seem to be too happy about that.

    3. A sequel to the 2007 movie with more action, more robots, and less humans. Check. And we sacrificed a lot of story exposition for it.

    I think that by this point, we should go with the flow. Hasbro/Takara-Tomy seem to do well when they don't consult the fandom in the least.

    Anything else? Agree? Disagree?

    the fandom will never be pleased, so it'd be interesting to see what happens if they don't listen to us.

    *with the exception of Universe/Classic, they have to keep making them forever!*

    Like I said in another post. The fandom is never happy.

    You want THE LIST?

    I think the franchise has done a good job providing something for everyone over the years.

    Frankly, if you can't find something you DON'T like, you're not looking hard enough.

    I'm happy, i just put up with what their bitch asses produce for us and deal with it. After all people, we can't make a difference really, as i read in another thread, "hasbro/takara does not give two shits about us", and that sums it up basically.

    Has it occurred to you that we already have a thread pretty much covering this very topic...on the first page at that. So, you could've just posted your thoughts in there.

    I can't say anything about that cause I never paid attention to the Titanium line and know nothing about it.

    Of course not. Talking plantformers? Becoming one with yourself to transform? I feel it wasn't so much the older level stories it was the /type/ of excuse for a TF universe they were told in I think is what is driving the complaints here.

    All that shows is the fans that wanted a viable story and got hammered for it by other fans werent so stupid after all.....

    I think in some ways we are all getting what we want but we are not getting it with the eye for detail. Its kind of hard to explain. The powers that be are giving us what we want with not thinking through the entire project... I can't figure out how to put it into words....

    I'll take this a step further. Name one line, toy or character, ANYTHING, and I'll find a complaint about it.

    On point 3, we most definitely did not get less humans.

    They probably are thinking through the entire project, just not the way some segments of the more obsessed fandom would want them to think.

    Agreed. I never actually counted the screen times, but during these 2.5 hours, it really felt like there was more human time.

    No it should be, "Everyone is an ungrateful fan that can't appreciate the wonderful gifts our lord and master Hasbro permits us...except for me, of course!" :rolleyes:

    Quoting oneself is good times. You should do it at least once.
