    I apologize if this was already posted, but today's Penny Arcade takes a jab at Michael Bay and the new Optimus design. Check out the news post and today's comic!

    That last panel held the real joke, at least to me. While furiously complaining about the changes, Gabe continues to stuff his face with them.

    Much like all the ninnernet kiddies bitching about their childhood being raped by a paintjob yet will be first in line on July 4th.

    They're overreacting. Prime has always been a truck, and he still is. He's red, he's blue, he's an Autobot. As long as he's leader, I won't have a problem.

    As for Megs, he's changed forms so many times there's no one mode to associate him with. As long as he's stomping ass, ruining everybody's ****, and being an awesome Decepticon leader, I won't have a problem.

    I think they're making fun of the changes and the complaints at the same time. It's Penny Arcade. They exaggerate stuff to absurd proportions and make fun of things. Don't read too much into it, and especially don't take it seriouusly. Taking P.A. seriously defeats the purpose.
