How is the series' quality compared to 80's TF cartoon (which is mostly very poor IMHO)? Would it work without nostalgic attachment?

I suppose my next "watch through" project is going to be disappointment anyway. At the moment half through my Batman:TAS complete box set. :)

Imagine it, the Transformers brand being used to make child's toy based on a long-standing property owned by an international corporation... Shocking. :eek: Are people afraid that non-initiated people (aka not-true-fans) might think buying Transformers toys is a childish hobby? :o Or they go the re...

I understand why it's not everybody's cup of tea, but why the hate? These crossover toys are cute and sort of funny. I would buy Darkwing Duck remold. :o

Not really much to add to previous reviews, but short thoughts. Nice mini-series, not great but entertaining and written well enough. Would have vastly preferred Sludge to remain dead though. Sort of got used to Roche's exaggerating style and Raiz filling in for Roche disturbed surprisingly little. ...

Really? The fact the Decepticons would kidnap them to use as leverage against Sam is hard to believe? To be honest I didn't (and still don't) even remember the kidnapping scene. Actively trying to shut out most of the scenes they appeared, I quess. ;) The more I look at the toys, the less I want th...

Went to watch without having read spoilers and with low expectations as I really disliked the first one. Better than expected and clear improvement.

Hi. , Would be interested in the Actionmaster partners in your list. Lionizer Push Button (if it has both hands). My trade list is out of date, but if you have a want list I could check it. I have at least Stranglehold's inner robot and Bemblebee's helmet from pretenders. Several BW basics as well. ...

They kicked you while you were on the ground? :nonono:

Good thing nothing got broken, and seemingly not even mild concussion? I've unfortunately seen one other case where things didn't work out that happily.

Return of the revenge of the over-abundance of glowing eyes. :( Still doesn't make any sense and the bare stupidity of the effect distracts me, as always.

Not sure if I like the (a bit too) close analogy to human athletics, but otherwise cautiously optimistic.

I sort of liked it when it was shown here few years ago. Nothing spectacular, but entertaining.

On the other hand, I have only read one TPB from "Birds of Prey", which left me completely unimpressed. Can't even remember what happened in it. :o

I actually hated the whole episode.

I was also hoping writers wouldn't downgrade the only female character in the show to the cl...
