My friend, Terry, pointed this out, but there’s a lot that’s actually problematic about RiD 201X. 1) Let’s start with the fact that sometime between Prime and RiD, Decepticon branding seems to have come to mean “criminal” rather than “opposing faction member.” While I have no doubt that Megatron welcomed criminals into the fold to provide him with resources and soldiers, I also can’t see some of the Alchemor prisoners as the type to fall in line. 2) Other than Fracture (who wasn’t a prisoner) and Overload (who’s there to sell the then-newest toy gimmick), ALL of the Decepticons either have animal alt modes or animal styled robot modes. It also makes it clear in most cases that these “animal” Decepticons are various subspecies (sharkticon, corvicon, etc). 3) Some of these prisoners are clearly mentally ill. Springload, for example, is delusional. He needs HELP, not imprisonment (or at least not the kind he’s given here) 4) Some of the behaviors demonstrated by the prisoners, such as Filch’s thieving, are indicated to be SPECIES’s TRAITS. That’s... that’s problematic. 6) And all of those people are thrown in with genuine monsters like Steeljaw and Underbite. Or are we just thinking about things too hard?
