    The thing is, FOC set a really high bar, and RotDS was below that bar.

    I'd like to see the champion athlete/medical student background of Marvel UK Optimus revisited some time.

    I love the idea of Autobot-allied human allies piloting mech suits as pilots who join the fight alongside their comrades, or become part of their crew members maintaining their base or ships.

    I think it can make the human characters to be useful in certain scenarios (Like human crew members go to repair their ships, in tight and cramped areas inaccessible by a Transformer), and it can open up more potential for some great human ally characters.

    It's pretty obscure. It's only really a Marvel UK thing, and even then it's probably one of the more obscure bits of Marvel UK. I think it's only brought up in "State Games" and Optimus' Datafile, both of which were in the 1986 Annual. Though the State Games themselves were brought up in the actual comics, I can't ever remember there being an explicit reference to Optimus' history in the comics. I guess the fact that there's not much to it makes me wonder what could be done with it if someone gave it another shot. Just from the way it sounds though, it sounds pretty cool.

    I really liked Coby's custom Scrapmetal mechsuit from Cybertron. A shame he didn't get to use it more often.

    Coby really could've turned out to be one of my favorite human characters, if they had, 1- made him even more useful to the Autobots in the Cobybot, and, 2- not complely erased his loner aspect where he's almost an outcast to his family from GF and used that to build his friendship with Landmine to the point he thinks of him as a surrogate father or uncle.

    Guys, guys, it makes no sense to argue over which of those Cycloni is better when this one is the clear winner:

    Wfc is far superior to foc.
    The rotf tie in game is runner up, far more enjoyable than devastation or the armada ps2 game

    I think G1 Megatron is boring and overrated. I also think Armada Megatron is the best Megatron. All hail horn boi

    If you are expecting it to be terrible, you're going to look for reasons why it's terrible. And be unhappy.

    I went into Siege with high expectations that weren’t met. Earthrise with low expectations that still weren’t met. I’m justified in expecting Kingdom to be more of the same.

    This is pattern recognition more than anything. After Siege and Earthrise it's perfectly reasonable to make the assumption that Kingdom will also be of poor quality. I mean with what we know about the show at this point I'd say it's a pretty safe bet.

    I get what you're going for, but this really isn't a hill worth dying on.

    I would just question why one is watching at all.

    Why?

    That's what they all asked me. Why that show? Why War For Cybertron? Why, of all Transformers series, did I decide to watch the show whose record of mediocrity and joylessness is legend?

    Because I'm an IDIOT, that's why!

    Im going to bring it up again, but my unpopular opinion is that there shouldn't be a thread about unpopular opinions. Its almost always about what show or media was around when they were young. And they defend that as the "best version" because nostalgia.

    So did I tbh, but I'm mostly arguing with this person's contention that everything recent is crap, and therefore everything coming is going to be crap.

    I don't have high expectations for Kingdom, but I'm going into it with the attitude that there might be something in it I'll like. Siege was bad and Earthrise was terrible, and therefore I don't think that Kingdom will be great--but I don't think every other TF series that will ever be made is going to be just like WFC.

    Fortunately, this is an internet forum, and I don't need to die on a hill over any of this. As I said above, I wasn't arguing with Suboptimal that there's no reason to think Kingdom will not be a mess, I was arguing with the contention that the whole TF franchise has gone down the toilet.

    Of course, I actually do like IDW and Cyberverse a lot.

    But I didn't like Siege or Earthrise. I'm sure that Kingdom will be a mess. I'm just hoping I will enjoy the mess more than I enjoyed the previous two series.
