    In a funny way: The existance of the Optimus Prime Oral Care Center.

    In a "would love to see that in fiction" way: The existance of the Decepti-pack


    -ZacWilliam, weird fact... wierd fact... recently learning that G1 Ratchet was first created by Budainsky to be a femme and then changed to the bot we know because of Hasbro's reluctance to have girl characters in a boys toyline, comes to mind...

    That Airrazor was treated as Male in the Japanese dub of Beast Wars because it was thought it would help the sales of his/her toy.


    On a sidenote, that many people don't know the difference between fact and opinion.

    That prime decepticons have faces on their bodies. The Bonecrusher in Barricade is particularly creepy.

    There will almost certainly never be another toy named "Slag", as the term is now an offensive one in the United Kingdom. And also because it's a curseword in the Transformers universe.




    If it was fact you would be able to use objective, rather than subjective terms to describe it.

    Yeah, I agree with this. I read somewhere that this made it seem like Tigatron and Airazor were more than friends

    Cybertron Override was a similar instance.

    Also that Beast Wars Airazor of all characters was the first girl character to get a mould that was clearly designed to be a female, verses her original toy being either or and Blacharachnia's first toy which is quite obviously masculine.

    No he doesn't.

    Their relationship was treated as a sempai/kohai (senior/junior student or master/student) one, as opposed to a girlfriend/boyfriend one, throughout most of the show. Tigatron was treated as something of a ronin samurai in his character, so given the culutral differences in how the master/pupil dynamic is shown in japanese media vs. in north america, they were ble to make it work. And then, at that final point where they're abducted, Airazor announces his love for Tigatron in the japanese dub. When letters came in from confused fans, the response was simply "some people are just like that".

    Weirder still, in the beast wars metals manga, it's a separate continuity, so Airazor is female, and gets upgraded to her very female transmetal form, which reflects the toy (which also exists as the first TF specifically designed as female in its toy mold, as there is confusion regarding whether Minerva or Nightbeat were designed first).

    I don't know if this counts as the same weird fact, so here's another one:

    The use of the G2 Autobot symbol, but upside down, for the Destron symbol in Car Robots (though the Decepticon symbol was used in RiD), was because it was cheaper to just use that on the stickers/decos than to remold the projectile discs that came with Black Convoy / Scourge, which bore that symbol.
