It's a shame when threads like these end up in the toilet. One flush and it's all up Schitt's creek without a paddle. Honestly, I'm considering making this my G1 Optimus for my CHUG shelf. I'm THAT impressed with it. Wow. It's incredibly sneaky. I applaud it because it serves my needs and I can admit I'm selfish at times, but it's definitely sneaky. Hey! There's no need to be throwing hats at people. ...use rocks. Hit the soft spots, face, and genitals, hurts more and your message gets across better. Better yet... I'm a little surprised by you and Mnemonic. You've been on the boards and in the fandom long enough to know where the movies and the subsequent toy line are going and that this was planned. Getting angry about this, at this point, is needless frustration and a waste of energy. If this actually has to be explained to you guys, then somehow you've been missing the memo all along. No one's forcing you to buy this or go see the movie, there's no gun to your head. Close the thread, take a walk outside, anything but this if it causes you this much discomfort. I just don't get it. This. It's starting to hurt my brain to see all of this fly over the heads of seemingly intelligent and brilliant people. I'm befuddled.
