Smile What single TF story would you like to wipe from existance?

If you could just remove one episode/comic story from TF history, which'd it be? It could be cos you hate it, it could be cos it makes an ass of your favourite character, it could be cos it throws up a big continuity problem and things'd be easier without it...

Mine would be the comic's "Rock N Roll Out", for simply being utterly terrible...

Hypocrite! Then Skids and Smokescreen (Cripes, I almost typed Smockscreen...) would never come into existence! How do you like that, eh?

Erm, they could do a cartoon and just turn up in "I, Robot Master", I suppose...

I'd get rid of Call of the Primatives only because then we could all be speculating on Unicron's origin in the cartoon series, rather than having to know that he was made by some Genious Monkey on Steroids.

I'd also get rid of COTP. Life would be so much simpler if we could just project the comic's explanation of Unicron onto the cartoon...

COTP for starters...lemme break out the ol' list for some more: Autobot Spike, Auto-Bop, The Girl Who Loved Powerglide, B.O.T., Surprise Party, and The Return of Optimus Prime.
(I know I'm gonna catch some flak for that last one, so I'll probably just start another topic to explain myself)

Not an episode/comic but a character, get rid of Wheelie and replace him with Bumblebee (Bumblebee was etleast useful sometimes and wasn't annoying).

Well, actually I'd destory the Avengers story Clay Soldiers. Well, it had as much to do with that last post as anything else...

uhm... let me see....
the UK comic in which the Wreckers kill all those facsimile Decepticons. How can they even SUGGEST that those losers could kill all those mighty warriors?!

Oh, and of course TF:TM OR Season 3 has to go. Can't have the Insecticons dieing in TF:TM and popping up all over season 3....

lets see now, what would I like to get rid of?

1) lots of stuf in TF:TM like Prime, Prowl Ratchet and Wheeljack dying. wheelie. daniel and Arcee should have never existed. That whole dance scene (ugh!)

2) episodes: the Girl Who Loved Powerglide, Carnage in C-Minor, Big boradcast of 2006 and Only Human.

3) get rid of the whole headmatser and targetmaster ideas. Humans were the worst part of the series.

4) make COTP a 2 part episode so they can go mroe in depth into Unicrons origin and defeating Tornitron.

Errr to hard.Some choices are competing hard.
But for total lothing it would be Nightmare planet! In theory little wrong except its the most boring episode I've ever watched. Carnarge is at least humourously bad in its excution (and we see underused tf's) but nightmare takes the prize by focusing on the mostly least intresting tf characters (Even with wheelie it couldnt be worse)

I'd also get rid of the Neo-Knights, they were a complete waste of page space in the late comics. Circuit Breaker was an interesting character but they never should have let her play such a major role in the destruction of Unicron.

Oh yeah, but you probably buy into that whole "ten deadliest murderers" thing, don'tcha? Shrapnel maybe, but the rest of 'em...

Hmmm...
I'm torn between "Traitor" and "Prime Problem" because BOTH stories have some really ridiculous Anti-Starscream bias...
