This is hilarious. I love it when fans take a very critical measuring stick to determine the quality of the movies and then toss that stick out the window when they praise their favorite flavor of Transformers. Give me a break. All TF fiction is one big toy commercial. The only series with a consistent level of depth and quality was Beast Wars. Beating up the movies because they are a "laughing stock" makes you look like a Pokemon collector who mocks people who collect Digimon.
