Ever since day one of the Transformers franchise, NOBODY ever liked the human characters. Almost all of the time, they're like insects in the attic; you expect them to be there but they're always a nuisance. Even when they're integral to the plot and manage to take down a TF or two it's always under contrived circumstances that only need common sense to succeed in. We constantly see humans say "let us fight!" when they can never engage head-on with any TFs. Well, what if they were given the means to? We've seen it first in TF Prime, where MECH creates Nemesis Prime, again in Rescue Bots where Dr. Morocco creates his Morbots, and again in TF Animated with Masterson's Headmaster. I'm of course talking about man-made robots joining the battle. Can the interest in human characters be saved by giving them mechs to pilot, or is the core issue beyond the simple fact that humans can't fight in TF? What kind of man-made mecha would be suitable for the TF franchise, and how would that effect relations between TFs and humans?
