    This, along with Perceptor, and including the Mario and Luigi version of Huffer and Pipes sum up everything I hated about Animated.

    Why is that bad. I think it's pretty cool having Transformers based on other people and charecters.

    Why? Because it's pointless and dumb. I rank it right up there with robot coitus, which is apparently well received in the fandom.

    I'm not a fan of that either. If Animated continued and made toys for those characters, it wouldn't look great. Animated was still awesome, though.

    How was it pointless and how was it dumb?

    Trick question. It wasn't.

    Personally, I think Wheeljack's TFA design is hands-down, the best design the character has ever had.

    Except Perceptor and Wheeljack's designs weren't actually based on anyone. Huffer and Gears were based on Mario and Luigi, but that's it out of the four mentioned in this topic.

    I think it worked well for Huffer and Gears, given that they were just super-minor background characters.

    What did it add to TFs? Nothing. So it's pointless. Not a trick question at all.

    It added neat new takes on the characters.

    What did it take away from TFs? Nothing.

    If you don't like it, that's cool. I can completely understand why someone wouldn't like the Mario and Luigi homage with Huffer and Pipes (There's some TFA designs I don't like too, like Mixmaster). Doesn't make it "pointless".

    If everything must add something to TFs, then about 60% of the entire franchise is pretty much moot.
