    Since there’s one in the non transformers forums I wanted to make one here specifically only for transformers
    ( just don’t break any of the rules)
    here’s my dumb question

    Why the hell does devastator have balls? Who asked for this?

    Sadly, that's all it amounts to.

    Probably also why Bee peed on John Turturro.

    It'd be nice if he could put actually funny humor in his movies for once.

    Why has neither Hasbro nor Takara approached TRIGGER for an anime yet?

    Probably because they haven't really done any Japanese based animated series since Cybertron over a decade ago, besides that Triple Combination one in 2013 that didn't do so well. As Hasbro has more control over the production of the series.
    Shame though, would like to see a show by Sunrise of Trigger.

    I should really get my voice heard for this stuff. Only then will we get something like that.

    I posted this in the Random TF Thoughts thread a while back but I think it bears repeating; in Dark of the Moon when Sam fires that grappling hook into Starscream's eye and gets flung through a window, why the hell was there someone still apparently going about their job as usual in that building, and why was she seemingly un-phased by the giant robot causing chaos directly outside prior to that until someone came crashing through that window?

    I guess you get used to such background noise.

    They probably just kept going about their business during the invasion as well.

    ...and that was the exact moment I checked out of the movie franchise. I would have left the theater if I wasnt with my wife and another couple. I like crass humor as much as the next person but like all good comedy it has to be earned.

    Even if Armada wasn't exactly well-liked with its rushed dubbing and basic dialogue, why didn't more fans give Micron Legend (The original Japanese version of Armada) a chance?

    A lot of times when Micron Legend is suggested and preferred by people to be watched instead of Armada, people still watch Armada instead knowing the rushed nature of the UT English dubbing? Why through?

    Was it because of the language barrier? Was it because "I don't understand Japanese"? Or was it because of difficulty of finding a viable way of watching it?

    When can we see a Bay-directed comedy about Sam and Carly’s family?

    For a bit of context for this dumb question: Mr Bob Skir was one of the story editors and writers of the Beast Machine, a pretty.... controversial Transformers series back when it came out. Initially, Skir went out of his way to make himself accessible to the TF fanbase.... only to soon found himself bearing the brunt of fan hostility when Beast Machine proved far more controversial than expected, enough for him to bow out from a guest appearance for a BotCon convention (And any major TF conventions for over 10 years).

    Despite Bob Skir has said that he never received any major death threats (As some rumours claimed), he did have fans saying 'Bob and his whole family should just die!', quite early into the show towards him when his father really has passed away due of cancer exactly around that time— one example of hostility that made him give up from a guest appearance at BotCon, something he regrets because it let down the convention organisers.

    Would it be a good idea for an AMA session to be held with that specific fan who says that 'Bob and his whole family should just die!' quote in current times, with all sorts of questions like:
    • Has your opinion on Beast Machine changed over time?
    • Why did you say such things to Mr. Skir back then?
    • Have you ever look back at that time, and regretted said action?
    • When you say that, did you know that Bob Skir's father really has passed away due to cancer around that exact time?
    • During all these years, how did you live with the fact that you've said such things that could never be unsaid?
    • Did anyone around you both online and IRL know this action of yours? if yes, has this impacedt your relationships with each other?
    • After that, what happened to your interest with Transformers as a whole? Did you outgrow your interest and leave this fandom, or your passions towards Transformers remains the same as ever?
    • If you are given another chance, would you repeat saying the same thing to Mr. Skir?
    I just think such AMAs could be an interesting alternate look into the behaviours of the Transformers fanbase.

    I've been watching Toy Story all 4 films in a row,
    In a Toy Story like Universe how do the Combiners function? you guys think its like Ultra Bee where each part controls that part of the body and they work together to move or do their minds merge like a normal combiner?
    Do the toys transform on their own or do they get help from other toys?

    Would Super Megatron act like Gaunter O'Dimm toy messing with everyone else, with his monstrous face being his true face that he shows when pissed?
