    Well, let's get a new one going. What are the areas (series/characters/toylines, etc...) of Transformers where people either really like something or really hate it? I figure this is a good one, since we all like to bitch and moan, so I can think of:

    Bay Movies (I thought it was good, but not great)
    Beast Machines (Didn't like it)
    Robots in Disguise (Really did like it)
    Rodimus Prime (I thought he was cool when I was in third grade, but liked it a lot better when Optimus came back)


    --->Well, there's mine, with my opinions, anyone else?

    The movies. By far and away, especially judging by the kind of things still going on in Movie Discussion.

    Animated polarised opinions when we first saw artwork, but won a lot of people over when it started showing.

    The thing about that is, especially when people bring it up, that the transformers have the Ability to " Change from Robot to Truck & Back!"

    it's that " And Back " part everyone seems to ignore.. I don't mind transformers changing, going out for a brief jaunt in a fur coat for a few seasons.. but I'm still waiting for it to "& Back!"

    The fact that Animated ended, and the movie franchise lives.

    There's the whole thing about whether or not the Decepticons are actually evil or simply misunderstood.

    Yup.

    Besides- that whole "change" thing is nothing more than rhetorical non-sense.

    Definetly the Trukk not Munnky (that phrase still cracks me up), the Rodimus Prime issue, female transformers, Pokeformers as mentioned on TF Wiki, Megan Fox in general, Beast Machines.

    Also, Movie Prime's flames and lips. I know that stirred up a lot of crap. Another movie related thing: Frank Welker not voicing Megatron.

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned Drift yet.


    I agree.

    "G1 is dead!" cracks me up everytime I hear/read it. Hell, I just heard someone say it on one of the Geekcast podcasts.

    "Is Wheeljack dead or alive?" seems to get people riled up, especially one of us. You know who you are.

    "Are the BW Predacons really the bad guys?" tends to spark some very heated philosophical debate.

    Well, I've only been around a short while, but I've noticed these since hanging out in the TF fandom:

    - GEEWUN [LIEK TEHRE IS NO OTHAR!!!11]
    - FIRRIB [orrrrrrr FIBRIB :|]
    - Trukk not Munky [lolz I hate BW aren't I rad]
    - ROTF [ohmygod they ruined the spirit of G1 with all of the Mountain Dew adverts! G1 would NEVER HAVE DONE SUCH A THING EVER]
    - Sexual orientation of certain TFs [...dear primus, fanfiction.net, it really doesn't matter if Starscream is bonking Shockwave instead of Megatron and ARGH WHY DID I JUST THINK THAT NO NO OUT OUT OUT OF MY HEAD]

    tl;dr fandom is crazy.

    Oh no, I wasn't singling the TF fandom out as a special example of CRAZY. That would fall to the Ten/Rose fans of the Doctor Who persuasion. *cough*
