    Well, I don't necessarily love Aileron but I think she's a fine enough character with an unique design.

    To be fair 1DW did try to hold it itself to a higher standard of storytelling than previous Transformers media. At least in phase 2, whether or not it succeeded is a matter of opinion.

    All I care about is Aileron not getting a toy because it's her IDW Deadverse design... Oh well. Better luck next time.

    I understand your point, but sometimes using existing characters means less freedom and more input from Hasbro about what you can and can't do with them. The OCs tend to be new and therefore the writers have more leeway (such as in the original Wreckers story and how we got Impactor in the first place), so there are pros and cons to having new non-toy original characters.

    Yeah, and it took 25-30 years before we got official toys of Straxus, Scrounge, and Impactor. I’ll be dead in another 30 years….

    But we did get Drift, Nautica, and even Rung in a timely manner. If Aileron and other new characters prove their worth (and don't turn into an unmarketable torture devise like members of the DJD) than Hasbro will make one.

    This is literally the first time I've ever heard that this is what "the whole deal with the wreckers" is....

    This looks like garbage. I hope IDW goes bankrupt.

    This looks extremely cringy to me. I'm not entirely sure why, but it just seems very tumblery, if that makes sense.

    I guess maybe I was being more exclusive to the IDW1 Wreckers, since that’s entirely how Last Stand if the Wreckers and Sins of the Wreckers characterized them and how the group was popularized. Before that their gimmick was being toys that didn’t make it into the cartoon, but what made them huge was that IDW depiction of the group. Either way this lineup shows that there isn’t any rhyme or reason to who gets to be a Wrecker in this new continuity.

    The concept of the Wreckers was popularized LONG before IDW came around, and each version has been different than the one before it. There doesn't HAVE to be "any rhyme or reason to who gets to be a Wrecker in this new continuity." They can do whatever they want.

    I believe it is, yes.

    Wait a sec.

    ...

    She's literally Crasher from Go-Bots with a different name and a few things changed, that'd be like saying Clobber from Cyberverse had a 'unique' design.

    Eh, not really? Crasher is much taller, slender and with a meaner look.
