    When I say "we" I mean "people who are sick of the quotes." Of which there are many, I assure you. Jeez I'm not that hyperbolic as to imply every single fan.

    Sort of like how it is in Prime.

    How many times has one shall fall been used in Prime? Six, seven times? Kind of dulling the edge there.

    Except I don't, but way to pretend you know me. No, go on ahead, try and find where these quotes "drive me insane with rage."

    You'll be gone a long time.

    Did you just use two sign-offs in one post?

    Also, funny you mention "Till all are one" since they actually made a joke about that phrase in the comics, and how overusing quotes can become tiresome and lose their meaning. It even became a bit of a running joke, with characters taking bets on how often a specific person used it.

    Funny that something only I have a problem with managed to get referenced by a comic, isn't it?

    Well, three or four, and one of those was kinda self referential. But your point remains.

    Not to derail the thread any further but...
    That's Overlord's shut off switch right? It's been staring me in the face for the past week and it just seems so obvious! Plus they've set it up perfectly with Rodimus...

    I think he just accociates the phrase with failure.
    Megatron said it after beating him, and he deliberately mis-remembered Iornfist schooling him to include the phrase. I bet that's gonna drive him actually crazy if he hears Rodimus say it. But that'd certainly be an interesting turn. (And what if Roddy does say it? He just shuts him off!)

    Because a corrupt Autobot government, Decepticons who believe they're in the right, a School teacher thrown into war, an army of walking WMDs that have low IQ's as to not question their actions, and a veteran medic suffering from PTSD, is just so kiddie, I mean, look at their chins!

    Also, Shout out to people who spoiler tagged MTMTE stuff, despite being in the Prime forum, thanks for looking out for your fellow man.

    None of those issues were actually touched on in depth... and you've gotta admit, the first season (and parts of the second season) were pretty stupid.

    >I HATE TRANSFORMERS PRIME

    No. Go away. You know literally nothing about what you complain about.

    Now when you start to annoy people who share your hatred of TFP, you know you are doing something very wrong and should probably give up and surrender. :)

    Like Prime or hate it.......... If you like G1 just stick with it and leave Prime alone........

    By the way, I respect G1, but I never show that much hate against another Transformers universe.

    I read this and my eyes glaze over. Animated kicks Prime's ass.

    Seriously, the designs, the voicework, the story, the characters. Animated outclasses Prime in it all. Literally, and ironically, the only thing it isn't good at is the actual animation of the show, overall, was okay at best. (ignoring the two or three amazingly fluid and clean episodes)

    Let's compare progress, shall we? Currently Prime has had a lackluster season opener where a whole bunch of random shit has happened following the Autobot's defeat and scattering among the Earth, and now they're all back together, new characters have shown up and done either little or the basics. (Magnus isn't much more than a taxi right now, let's be honest)

    Animated, however, had just done Transwarped, the best multi-parter of the show. Everything has changed. It followed up on seeds planted before, including Omega's origins and Ratchet's severe guilt and past trauma, Sari hs upgrade, gone beserk, and nearly killed Bumblebee, and Starscream came within inches of Cybertron, with Omega under his control. All the while the characters are still evolving drastically and it's nonstop action and developement in story.

    Prime's season opener was three episodes with enough content to fill one.

    Rock fucking on, bro.

    Pardon my french but no it fucking wasn't. Season 1 and 2 were just good fun. Natural Calls may be one of my favourite episodes. Animated wasn't great because it was in-depth and a compelling drama from the beginning, it evolved into that and started out just good fun. It didn't try to be obscenely, enragingly serious and melodramatic like Prime. It knew how to crack a real-ass Goddamn smile once in a while.

    Also how the hell were they not touched on in depth? Transwarped was basically all about Ratchet's PTSD and Omega Supreme being designed stupid so as not to understand the horrors he was inflicting.

    Bull Goddamn shit that's not in-depth. Way more in-depth than half the shit in Prime. (Which, BTW, still hasn't talked about "what it means to be a Prime" yet. Way to make the title a lie)

    Transformers Prime does not mean the meaning of the word.

    It is to symbolise that this show is the start of a new main continuity.

    (like the new Prime universe)

    Not according to what the show creators said early on.

    Backtracking by Hasbro: a how-to guide.

    Also, technically the games started this universe, so it's still wrong.

    I really hope you're utterly wrong about this.
