    Murdered puppy - Transformers Wiki - Teletraan I

    But wait, it gets worse:

    So yeah, the Decepticons liked killing puppies in Japanese version.

    I don't think the Decepticons savor killing puppies more than any other pesky organic obstacles in their path.

    But anyway... TF history's biggest WTF moment has to be the advent of Kiss Players.

    I'd have to say that the Prime & Megs Nike shoeformers get my vote for the biggest 'WTF!?' moment.

    The Murdered Puppy looks a bit too old to count as a "puppy" to me.

    Could've been worse. They could've stuck kittens into plastic bags and thrown them into a river, just for laughs.

    I'd say a great WTF moment was seeing the style for animated. Really supprising twist.

    any mistransformed toy picture in a store ad ever. Seriously. If they can spend the time to put together a giant KNEX or lego set and have the kids playing with it, surely they can take an extra minute or two to look at the instructions before taking a picture of the figure...

    In the new Target Wishbook Voy. Animated Grimlock is mistransformed. They didn't raise his chest up...

    The deaths of Prowl, Brawn, Ironhide, Ratchet, Prime, where the What the? Moment for me in the orginal movie. Other include
    -The early days of Beast Wars, before we realized it was awsome (a simailar thing happened with Animated. We, the fans, also attacked it before we warmed up to the show and the toys)
    - Beast Machines, the backlash kept US writers away from Transformers until just a few years ago.
    -Armada's early days before Unicron
    -Kiss Players
    -2007 Movie Designs which led to the "Bay's War" over in Leemon's funnies as well as the usual fan death threats
    - Dreamwaves troubles

    Energon was full of WTF moments, but here's some of my favorites:

    Random Autobot: It's Optimus! He's gone AWOL!
    Inferno: "I knew it!" :wtf: 

    (taken from my review of ep 47: Ironhide Team)

    Topside we get yet another moment of stupidity courtesy of the Autobots.
    "Look! There's the door we need to go in!"
    "Oh no! What's this deadly, poisonous energon gas that's appeared suddenly?"
    "Gasp! It's energon gas! We should go through that door quick!"
    *cut to another scene for 3 minutes. Return to the Autobots, who are still outside the door 3 minutes later*
    "But wait! If we go through that door there's no guarantee that there won't be more gas inside!"
    "You're right. Better to take our chances out here in the deadly poison energon gas than to risk going through the door, which could potentially save our lives. At least out here we know what we're getting."
    "Right!"
    "Oh look! The energon gas cleared up! Should we go through the door now?"
    "Why yes, I'm sure we can go in the door now."

    *smacks forehead*
    Why, guys? Just... why?

    - Movie Megatron redesign
    - Far too many moments from the animated "Transformers: The Movie," but most notably the death of Optimus Prime
    - KISS Players
    - Shoeformers
    - the upcoming Mickey Mouse Prime
    - the first time I saw the G1 toys for Ratchet and Ironhide (after seeing their cartoon counterparts)
    - that 40-foot statue of Optimus Prime in China. So bizarre and yet so incredibly f***ing cool:
    [​IMG]
    - The premiere episode of Transformers: Armada was about 30 mins of WTF: WHERE THE F**K are the TRANSFORMERS? I mean, the show is called TRANSFORMERS after all. It was the single worst TF TV series premiere in all of TF history.
    - "The Girl Who Loved Powerglide"--the whole damn episode.
    - The conclusion of "Make Tracks"--for someone with "no known weaknesses" it turns out that Megatron's chest plate can easily be opened by a human and have acid sprayed into it.
    - "Autobop"--even though it was great to see Soundwave vs Blaster, this ep had way too many WTF moments in it, like clubdancing Transformers for starters.
    - "B.O.T"--it's simply a total clusterfrak.
    - "Call of the Primitives" because it's just too hard for me to accept the fact that Unicron was created by a f***ing stupid little alien monkey thing.
    - The beginning and the ending of Beast Machines.
    - Many G1 Marvel Comics moments. Just off the top o'the old noggin: Shockwave's intro at the end of Ish #4; the upside-down hanging Autobot "corpses" in Ish #5; Ratchet defeating Megatron; Prime's suicide over an effing stupid video game; Ratchet fused with Megatron; Nebulan scientist Hi-Q's shocking revelation "I am Optimus Prime" (ish #76); and many others.

    Rumble jousting with Spike while riding Ramjet. Ramjet a) isn't flying, and b) could have just impaled the horse and ran Spike over with his landing gear.
