    Seriously even at the lowest depths of phantom menace and last knight I have never felt as one of the "this raped my childhood" brigade. But this comic I take as a personal insult.

    So if a take a literal shit on your carpet and name it Go-Bot that's showing the franchise respect, because it's making something creative?

    Is the meme fight really contributing to the damn thread? Is it?

    So... is this comic worse than Transformers VS G.I Joe? The reason I ask is because I finally got around to reading it and it was awesome.

    So far I like Gobots more than TFvsGIJoe. So no would be my answer.

    There's a difference between hating something and riffing on it. I like B-movies for a reason.

    The thing I don't get with all the hate is that there wasn't a point at which IDW were considering making a real "proper" Gobots series. It's not like this is preventing another series being written.

    Scoli does his own thing which some people like and some people really don't.
    His TF vs GiJoe was completely independent of all the existing TF and GIJoe stuff that was already being released around the same time.


    If this is a success, it could even lead IDW to believe there is a market for Gobots and actually put into production a proper Gobot series with conventional scripts and artwork.

    I don't think it needs conventional scripts and artwork. In fact I don't think it should have those things, I think it should be a fundamentally different approach to that taken with regular TF.

    But not if it's shit.

    OR they could view the success of Scioli's... vision as a justification to keep THAT going. It cuts both ways. You don't reward a company for a shit product on the hope that it'll encourage them to produce an excellent product next time around. It's no different than when Games Workshop moved all their Warhammer Fantasy models into the Age Of Sigmar stock for sales figures. All the panic buying of the older kits buoyed the sales numbers making it a reward for a divisive rule set. As it stands, they've doubled down on AOS albeit with a patch job to the rules to make up for some of its... shortcomings. Letting those older products hit clearance would have sent a different message.

    Chiller, I came on to this thread today to write my sentiments on the hate that this series is getting (its been nagging me for the last day and a half) and you pretty much nailed what I wanted to say.

    It makes no sense to talk about disrespecting the Go-Bots when it's not meant to continue the original series.

    HATERS, IT'S AN ALL NEW TAKE ON THE TOYS AND IN NO WAY CONTINUES THE ORIGINAL CARTOON SERIES.

    If you dislike for any other reason, you're entitled to it because just like buttholes, everyone has an opinion.

    If it wasn't so hard to draw this badly, I'd buy some crayons and give you a comic where King Optimus builds Cybertron over the ruins of Earth, feeds the Ark Scooby Snacks, and lobotomizes Bumblebee, and then deflect all criticism with "LOL haturz gonna H8!1one"

    I feel like calling Scioli's drawings bad is missing the forest for the trees. He's lovingly recreating the artstyle of 80's pack-in comics and doing it fantastically. It takes a lot of skill to do authentic homages to other people's art styles and to call the drawings bad is just wrong.

    I won’t defend the artsyle of the comic, but I will defend Gobots.
