    I agree, though I think most human cast have been okay to fine, the Burns family are excellent characters.

    I would compare it to cars of the 30s through the 60s. They don't have all the fancy gadgets cars today have, but people still like collecting them. Though I do agree that some fans just want g1 over and over. I want to see more new characters.

    I think it helps that the Burns family themselves are useful and they actually make use of the idea of robot/human partners.

    Most Transformers shows just have tagalong kids who found out their secret and thus have to be involved.

    Another thing I appreciate about ROTF Devastator, who's monstrous size is justified via being formed by a combination of some outright gigantic vehicles as well as having a multitude of components in general (nine in total, IIRC)

    well i felt the kids of prime helped out. they're one of my favorite human cast members because of that.

    all of the cybertron/galaxy force kids were the worst. they were all literally just there for no reason. im pretty sure the outcome of the series would have happened without their involvement.

    The dub actually gave the Cybertron kids a purpose, mainly that they can hear the Omega Frequency. Plus Coby is an excellent mechanic and Lori and bud were able to to teach the Autobots a lot about Earth.

    They were pretty alright human protagonists in my book.

    yea but if you remove the dubs fanfic reasoning and stick with the original script they became useless in a hurry. a mechanic? please that's red alert's job. and the whole "use kids to teach autobots about earth" bs reason? even idw prowl decided to go with google.....follow the trend.

    human cast members CAN be useful. just not weirdo mystical mumbo and or jumbo created by the english dubbed writers when even they realize "wow these kids are useless as all hell"

    even if you buy into all that energy sensing crap that those cybertron kids are still near the back of the line when it comes to human tagalongs.

    Fred's a badass. He's faced with the end of the universe, but all he's worried about is snacktime.

    I love the concept of multiple continuity – it allows a lot of freedom to writers and creators. There are loads and loads of fanworks out there, and every time I meet a fellow fan who brings brilliant ideas to the fandom. It never stops to excite me with inspiration. (Yes, I'm a wannabe fanfiction writer.)

    I don't mind the Thirteen, but I don't like Optimus Prime being one of them. I prefer him to be a imperfect mortal struggling to do his best, rather than something like a chosen messiah. (I'd like to replace Optimus with Logos...)

    They were but aside from Miko. Jack and Raf were kind of bland. Raf was a mary-sue hacker.

    Fucking Fred!

    Or Rodimus. Would fit in pretty well with the whole "Chosen One" thing, and most effectively explain the Thirteenth being the "closest to Primus" among them.

    I have recently taken a liking to Imagine Dragons' "Battle Cry" or at least its intro.
