    Yeah, not surprised they're bringing gender politics into it, either. Why can't people just review things for what they are without shoehorning sociopolitical crap into it?

    "Combiner Wars is also the Dark Souls of Transformers series."

    "Would Windblade exist without Michael Bay?"
    Um, I think so. Windblade was the fan created character - in regards to the focus of this article, the fans voted that the character be female. I don't think the popularity of the 2007 film imported lots of new fans who would've voted.
    As for Combiner Wars being for adults... that's debatable. The tone is dark but not nuanced. And the story makes little sense - Windblade goes from peace loving city speaker to bloodthirsty murderer excited to work with Megatron in a snap? There aren't many G1 cartoon episodes wtih characterization this weak.

    I was going to generate an archive link for this trash, but apparently they have something built into their site that redirects you from WaybackMachine.

    Just ignore it. It's clickbait. Don't give them clicks, and they don't get ad revenue. Easy peasy.

    This article also acts like the darker, more serious tone hasn't been done in Transformers before.

    Beast Wars and TF Prime say hi.

    No, just explicit scenes of sex and gore.

    Have you ever read erotic Transformers fanfiction? That shit will make you go batty quicker than gazing upon an Elder God.

    Here some quotes:

    According to series co-creator Eric Calderon...

    Well, I mean, that's a great goal but they sure as hell didn't achieve it. The idea that the characters in Combiner Wars are "emotionally complex" is actually hilarious.

    Man that'd be so weird to get a Game of Thrones type Transformers show.

    Ok, so... do George Krstic, Eric Calderon, and FJ DeSanto live in the same universe as the rest of us? Because at this point I am certain that they can't, because I don't know how they can lie about their own writing like this. All it takes is one look at one of Combiner Wars's actual episodes to prove that everything they say in these interviews about how the series is "complex" and "nuanced" and "mature" is absolutely, 100%, patently false. These guys are either delusional, willfully ignorant of what they've made, or Sean Murray-level liars (by Sean Murray I mean the developer of No Man's Sky, not the actor).

    That was a strained comparison if I ever read one. Yes.

    I did not feel it had proper context for either IP. No.
