    Please slap yourself very hard and then slap yourself again.

    If Hasbro had more content makers of IDW's consistency we would have had a TV show that managed to actually produce an entire season of good episodes rather than blowing hot and cold.

    Since the comics performed a soft reboot and became MTMTE and RID they've been fascinating, through provoking and daring.

    Just follow MTMTE's 'Dawn of the Autobots' story arc up until current issue. It is, generally, very good stuff.

    Giving the TF license to Marvel would be an awful idea. Marvel already have too many comics on the market.

    If it did have to go elsewhere I'd prefer it went somewhere were they've good space for another comic line and have good writers.

    10 more years huh?

    Kind of split on this.

    It took them what, seven years to put out a monthly title that wasn't shit?

    I hate the you know Hasbro forced it on us but we change the look of bots as new toys come out...............................................

    They need Dan Figeura to come back and draw a real G1 style like he did back in the day, not movie style crap.

    James Roberts, him I like although I seriously hate the want to be human relationship shit he likes all too much. The rest is pretty good though.

    Also piss on the combined continuity bullshit being preached as well and the 99 Primus' and a bitch ain't one of'em.

    It's a shame, but I doubt very much that Figeuroa would ever go back. I think his leaving had something to do with a figure being made from one of his designs without his consent.

    I love the designs, but the story is not my favorite.

    Yeah I remember that, his IDW style sucked though.

    I only want him back if he does it like the work he was doing at DreamWave.

    I'm pretty sure that any artist working on the TF IP has to sign away their rights e.g. all work belongs to IDW/Hasbro.

    All IP/brand conscious companies do this.

    I'm in a very minority camp, so anything Jame Robert touch is a disaster, not a fan of Robert.

    Agreed with the above. On the positive side, now I will save 10 more years not spending my money on IDW comic.

    Maybe you need another hobby. From the way you say it, TFs is just wasting your time & resources.

    Here's to ten more years of subtle canon Yaoi shipping and Sitcom style comedy.
