Interesting version of what I have to say. Before G1 media began, there was The Toys. They came from Japan and to market them towards boys, Hasbro made some good and others evil. This was so there could be a war. As the media was launched, it became apparent both sides were treated as characters. This continued throughout the franchises history until new word came from a director called Bay. And as this has effected the new show, is it too late? Boring but perhaps easier to understand version. Transformers media being big toy commercials, has had at least one positive effect story wise: since the beginning of Transformers, both Autobots and Decepticons were treated as characters. Something which has earned both sides fans. However, recently, when the Decepticons have built up a reasonable fan base, Bay decided to turn the Decepticons into an army of faceless thugs who only exist to die, led by a bunch of nobodies who do nothing before they die. And, as Hasbro thinks everything needs to be copies of the movies, Transformers Prime Decepticons are the same though perhaps a very tiny bit better. Now you can't even find a fan film that doesn't have Decepticons being slaughtered. I understand that I can't expect the Decepticons to always win and that there will be some series when they won't win at all. But when the Decepticons are nobodies who exist only to die, I say things have gone to far. So I ask, do you think the bar will ever be raised back up for the Decepticons?
