You're really, really right. The thing with Furman is that he isn't really that great of a writer, Transformers fans often seem to just have a really warped view as to what one is. "Furmanisms", for example, would be taken as crap, lazy writing in most fandoms, in Transformers it seems to be considered a cute quirk? I really don't get it. ...And don't even get me started on Wildman's art.
