    I know this probably isn't the thread for this, but I noticed that several and I'm sure other people have noticedwebcomics have the recurring archetypes:
    -Optimus being a dick (first seen over in As Cybertron Turns, reiforced in Grimlock-13)
    -Shinki's (Transhiki world and others)
    -different commanders (TF: Apocalypse, Super Robot Force)
    -Starscream being abused (Waywards' Insecticon Site, Grimlock_13)

    Are you saying there's not enough creativity and originality?

    What do you want to see?

    Doesn't every main character get abused at some point in Insecticomics?

    Hah! My comics don't do any of those!

    Of course, I haven't made a new TF photocomic in over a year and half....

    no, I was just making an observation. I have no problem with the comedy that insues in the funnies section, and I like that Prime is either a dick or a wussie, if not both. It's a change of pace from the official cannon material done over the years and it should continue.
