    Have you ever felt like you have committed a "heresy" against the TF fandom? It doesn't have to be a major thing, but have you ever done something considered taboo by other fans, or do you like a toy that is considered bad, something like that?

    For me, my heresies are liking Universe Cheetor to an extent, and absolutely loving the Energon toyline.

    Wrong forum. This should be in the general TF forum.

    Heresy is a phrase that means going against things that you used to or pretending to belive in. It's a big deal in realigons.

    I hate the Bay films with a passion, as well as the Sunbow G1 cartoon. Also, I like the English dubs of Japanese G1 series such as Headmasters and Masterforce. Doing these seems tantamount to heresy in the eyes of some people. Not that I care. :p

    Dude, I like ROTF. You can't be much more of a Heretic than that.

    I'm in this boat.

    Let's say no.
    EDIT: Unless it's Character X Yourself shiping. That's weird, brah.

    I adore the movies and dislike the G1 cartoon. In that sense, I should probably be burned at the stake. :lol

    I say no too. A lot of fans get way to creeped out over it. As long as you don't get into hardcore porn, I'm okay seeing things like Transformers kissing.

    I liked ROTF, the Twins, barely read any of the comics, I think the G1 cartoon is enjoyably stupid, I don't see the appeal of the G1 toys (to paraphrase the Cat from Red Dwarf, I like my toys to move), I am sad that Crossovers is mostly dead and I firmly believe in RIRFIB (which is heresy to at least half the fandom).

    And just to cap things off, I thought Jar-Jar Binks was amusing. I am the uber fandom heretic!

    That's not what I meant by "no," Kaymac. I'm a shipper, but I keep it to myself. I don't push it on other people, and it's not self...

    I just grossed myself out. Ugh.

    I guess mine would be that unlike many TF fans I'm perfectly okay with humans in the TF franchise!:lol  (Avoids tomatoes thrown at me.)

    Also I'm totally into Fembots being in the TF fiction even thought a LOT of people here tend to go overbaord to think about how gender works,with either it should be allowed or not in a franchise that did loads of even more insane content.:redface2: 


    I'm also not against shipping too if it's done right.

    Finally I'm okay if brands like the movies don't have many G1 homages/references because that's not really the main beef in a new TF series. Besides if every new series was like G1 we would basically have a nonstop rerun!:lol 

    So I'm sure that people will throw tomatoes at me for saying these things!:lol

    I have no problem with shipping. It is a thing that happens and it is a part of all fandoms. Some more than others.

    Also, I said "no" as in "I don't think it counts as heresy against the fandom." Some people blow the whole shipping thing out of proportion and go "EW GROSS". I'm not like that. It's cool with me!

    I despise the 1986 movie and the G1 cartoon after that along with the Beast Series and A/E/C with the passion and fury of one thousand suns.
