It's too bad it goes against the original spirit of the Transformers. This is not "transforming into humans". Disguised as a human? Sure. But not transforming. That's why they have their own name - pretenders. Whether or not it's a *good* idea as a concept isn't why it bothers people. It bothers people because to them, "Transformers" means robots who can turn into something. Bumblebee is a robot that can turn into a car. He doesn't have to wear a costume as a disguise - he turns into his own disguise. This just comes off as fan-fic hokum. I let a lot of Transformers characters pass me by. And from what I've learned, that was for the better.
