    Yeah but I think disliking TransFormers is itself a meme.

    I think Transformers gets a bad rep in the toy community because of how cheap/bad the figures tend to be, MPs withstanding (even they get flak a lot of the time).

    G1 shouldn't be standard for everything and every mew designs shouldn't have a homage to it just to recognize it, because they're not good in the first place.

    I really think their should be more OCs in Transformer series, and there were before the '07 movie, which used a lot of G1 names, which led to Animated having lots of G1 characters (because of some Movie synergy, I think), then Prime was based on the movies moreso, which meant characters were based on G1 characters again, with about 2 new OCs (same amount as Animated, I think). At least RID had lots of new guys, even Grimlock was supposed to be a new guy, but then TLK came out. And now Cyberverse is very clearly G1 inspired, more than any other series.

    I just want an Optimus with a different alt-mode, dammit.

    Honestly though what hasn't be been? Cab-over semi, long-nose semi, plane, fire truck, race car, tank, a videogame console, a fucking hat,

    Most (if not all) of those were merch/toy only. I want him to have a different one in a main series, like a train or jet or something big and heroic along those lines.... Or a pair of shoes.

    A militaristic Optimus similar to the Rolling Thunder one would be great!
    But they are the supposed "Autobots" and are robots in disguise so it's a long reach.

    Dang, I always forget about GO! He only showed up at the end, so that may be why.

    I feel a rescue helicopter would be in character for Optimus.

    Big Convoy was a Mammoth so technically Optimus has been a pachyderm :D

    Last time that happened was with Beast Wars, and even Primal was named after Optimus. It's never gonna happen, he's too recognisable.
