    You ever notice how a figure comes out and it is an Autobot, then they rerelease that figure in black paint, all the sudden he is a Decepticon. Come on now.

    10/10 OP

    On a related note, I'm glad LEGO finally changed their minifigures to have flesh skin tones. I was disgusted by their yellow racist Asian caricatures.

    Also, counterpoint, Movie Ironhide is a good guy and he's a black truck. Jazz is a good guy too and he's a black guy.
