    Whoops. I didn't see it on the first page on the news and rumors page, so I assumed no one madema thread on it. Sorry.

    If any moderator sees this, can you merge the forums please? Thanks.

    All the most boring and ill advised nonsense IDW gave us pushed into our faces to underline why the company is in trouble.
    Way to waste money you can't spare, guys :lol 
    But hey, at least you were able to share your sick fantasies with the rest of the world once more.

    This is actually a nice idea. It gives the whole of IDW-Verse some foundation moving forward and creates a mythology that can work in the next generation.

    Chris does those great Transformers Basics YouTube videos so as a result I'm hearing his voice while reading this preview.

    Everyone's opinions vary and I have my own misgivings about IDW's handling of Transformers. That said, the mythology IDW's Transformers is one of the most complete, elaborate takes on the franchise that aren't just straight blatant rips of other superhero concepts and actually manages to weave together wholly disparate concepts that have popped up in other iterations of the franchise.

    I don't like how a lot of the information was presented to us in the comics, but I for one like this idea - it reads like a cross between a bible and a history book. World building these days seems to be little more than an overwrought chore that everyone expects nowadays, but you can tell that someone really cared putting this stuff together.

    I like the idea of this book, but man, I would kill for like, an actual encyclopedia or something.

    "Pushed in our faces"

    a) No one put a gun to your head to make you read it
    b) "Sick fantasies"

    What about any of this is "sick"?

    Real talk half of the reason I want this is for Mcfeely (northern ireland represent!)
    I had no idea the IDW comics were so divisive until I joined these forums. A lot of vocal hate towards them. Personally the IDW comics are responsible for getting me back into collecting robots, and I recommend MTMTE to people regardless of whether or not they like transformers.

    TFW is in general a harsher environment for fan responses to Transformers compared to social media like Tumblr and Twitter.

    I'm pretty sick of the Primes mythology. I prefer the Animated style of it just being a rank. :p 

    Seriously though, the whole "the Autobots were just as bad as the Decepticons" shtick got really old, really fast. I'm fine with shades of gray, but it really did feel like a crappy fanfic by Decepticon fans at times.


    Tumblr and twitter are both flaming trash heaps, so I am not surprised.
