    I asked you a question, actually, which you haven't answered and you haven't acknowledged, and I'm genuinely curious.

    You can't be talking about me because even though I overall love IDW1, I have also admitted on multiple occasions that I ragequit when Ravage was fridged and didn't read the new ones until pandemic boredom and conversations with friends made me finally start my fix-it fic.

    I have many criticisms of IDW1, including the war crimes/genocide chicken game, fridging Ravage, and Celtic plotwork on a nearly unimaginable scale involving Shockwave. They're just not the things that piss off most of the people who complain about IDW1 on this site.

    For instance, they needed to actually show us more of Ratchet and Drift getting together, and to make it a little clearer that the emotional ties between Ravage and Soundwave and Megatron were as important as they were, because so many people got mixed up about this based on the fact that Ravage is a beastformer. A lot of people don't even remember that Soundwave sent Ravage aboard the Lost Light to kill Megatron, or that Ravage and the birds were forced into cassettification in order to be allowed to follow Soundwave off world.

    A lot of people don't take note of the interpersonal stuff going on among any of the Decepticons really, even though it's right there in canon.

    And things like "personnel mines" and "mindglobes" were just...egregious.

    Anyhow, the idea that I have no criticisms of IDW1 is ridiculous, I just think it's possible for a pretty good comic to have some big flaws, and am willing to admit that I cared about it enough that I actually did ragequit for a while--which is why I want to know what Misfire's story is.

    And sue for emotional damages?

    I wasn't even thinking about you. Why you would suggest that, I have no idea.

    Why would IDW make someone come here? "Looks like you need to visit a random ass message board which covers only one of the series we work on."

    good to know your feelings and perceptions are universal standards that everyone else must adhere to

    or maybe we're just foolish for liking the things you dont...

    or maybe

    maybe

    maybe

    it ain't that deep, kid

    IDW has already lost the franchise, there's no need to do donuts in the middle of the funeral service.

    God, some of y'all are about as fucking sad as the Hot Wheels Guys.

    YouTube (Old):
    They can't accept there's people who liked the books.
    People, who've openly admitted said books aren't perfect, yet still enjoyed them. A middle of the road opinion? Feh! Nothing but a farcical fantasy! Either you love it or hate it. Zero in between. And yeah, I said before at length how much I love MTMTE. Doesn't mean I loved everything single thing it did. Balance, you guys. Balance. Please, at least try.

    Ask the person who unironically suggested the only reason anyone here says good things about the comics is because they're IDW employees. Which is, among online criticism, the absolte bottom of the barrel.

    Moaning about idw at this stage is like trying to resuscitate a corpse that's been dead 10 years. It's pointless. Idw are done so we should all hope it goes out in a good note. Can't get much better then having nick Roche do the finale so let's look forward to it rather then the moaning and whining about idw and how they messed up etc etc.

    It's sad for those of us who have been there since the start but it's run its course and let's hope they finish well and we can look forward to a new start with a new publisher.

    can you say that you like transformers if you don't openly despise vast swathes of the franchise

    that's how you know how big of a fan you are - the more you hate about it, the bigger the fan

    Changing someone's comment when you quote them is in the same barrel.

    No, they didn't say IDW makes their employees come here, that's something you came up with on your own because they successfully made you angry enough to squawk back at them. You're getting so butt blasted over low level shit posting you are going further than they ever did.

    You'd think people who like TFW enough to earn that "SUPPORTER" badge would be more interested in helping get rid of shit posters than ripping on the rest of us who have to deal with it.

    You ever come across the phrase “a face that only a mother can love”?

    I haven’t been a true fan since the mid 80’s.

    And recently I’ve learned that I’m not a fan because I like Bay OP’s aggressiveness.

    I didn't mind it until he murdered Frasier in AoE. It just felt weird that Prime (and the film itself) would cross that line so abruptly. Felt like a missed opportunity to do something different with Prime as a character throughout the movie by having him grow progressively more aggressive towards humans until that moment...and *that* be the motivation for him to leave Earth on his next mission.

    "Damn, that escalated. I should probably leave for a while and find myself/my purpose."

    I had no problem with it. He did it to save Cade... and he shot the ground without actually shooting him.
