    Oh man, my sympathies. You're probably hearing "Let it go" in your sleep.

    I swear to god if Rodimus only shows up in one episode and dies like Sky Lynx, I'm gonna send Hasbro a strongly worded letter that they'll probably never read.

    Watch him just be in a 5-10 second vision of the future Galvatron comes from.

    We'll call it the Nemesis treatment.

    You guys are probably right, but I'm still thankful we are getting a Rodimus Prime toy.
    To be frank, I'm more excited about the toys than the Netflix series. It would bother me very much if I never got the toy versus I really wouldn't be very much bothered if I missed the entire series. That's just my humble opinion.

    I had a feeling Zach's part in the video was going to make me lose it, and I was right. I love that precious little goblin person.

    Wow. I want to buy it and make a Youtube video of setting it on fire. I'll have a hate-mail form link on the video description and put an ad on the page. The hate-mail will all be forwarded to Disney customer service, and the toy should pay for itself in 15 minutes.

    Yes. Yes!

    Why does anything you like have anything to do with what YOUR CHILD like?

    I hate Funko Pop, but if my (future :p ) child like it, I'll buy it FOR HIM as a gift or something else. Because again, that's what he/she like?

    So do I. But that doesn't mean my (future) child can't like it too.

    It may change around for you when it's no longer a hypothetical child, haha. You can get to feel very protective of them, and I find that I wouldn't want to give my children anything that I hate, or allow them to adopt bad habits or moronic hobbies without any pushback from me. Of course, there has to be flex and compromise. Children want what they want and you can't be totally strict, it's not good for anyone. So the best approach is to try and prevent them from being exposed to the dumpiest of dumps so they never even ask for it.

    However, if there's a TV on in your house, you may not be able to always prevent that.

    That depends, tbh.

    Bad habits are not comparable to "toys I don't like".

    Mindset will also differ, probably because I live in a household where I loves Aliens, my dad hates it, but he gift me an Alien playset because he knows *I* like it.

    Just chiming in saying that my parents bought me things they didn’t necessarily like/understand, and I plan to do the same for my son, cause I’m not a dick

    "Sorry son, you can't have a toy of your favorite character. I didn't like that show as a child."
