Funny you mention that, it was in an alternate universe where total fascists took over the planet to be even worse than the plane men.

Granted it was basically a way of making a hero out of robo-hitler but sometimes writers do a bad thing.

I just typed the words "does optimus prime have a girlfriend" into youtube and i can tell you that they gently caress, but I beg you do not look any further than this. Just stop. The answers you seek arent meant to be known by normal, healthy minds. if you go around knocking on doors you have to be ready for whatever answers, and I dont think you are; I sure wasn't.

Yes there's a USB stick / Car man romance in the comics

Also yes they have a variety of religions

and lastly Optimus Prime's girlfriend is his sister I believe, but this might be an attempt to get the pornhub crowd on board

edit: is there a motherboard pun that should go in there. step motherboard??

The Penguin's name is Break https://tfwiki.net/wiki/Break

Also Penguins can not be sucked. They are too hydrodynamic, as is their evolutionary niche.

Started playing both Ghost of Tsushima and Carrion. GoT is a supremely pretty game and I'm enjoying the "Samurai's Creed" feeling of it so far. Carrion is fun because you basically get to play a monster straight out of John Carpenter's The Thing, but in 2D side-scroller form.

That's disappointing to hear about the Transformer series on Netflix.

While I acknowledge that Jordan is great if not the greatest, since the documentary was produced with his help, I can't help but be mad when he gets to control the narrative. Case in point, when Payton was talking about being able to handle Jordan during the finals and then the crew shows Jordan Payton's comments, he just laughs it off but the stats from the finals games after Payton was finally put onto Jordan would justify Payton's original comments.

Yes, we have feathers--but the muscles of men.

I donít know if Transformers bang. In the comics they seem to get off on cuddling. Thereís special words for lifemate and good friend and poo poo.

Hasbro thought (still thinks) that Transformers are boy toys and so only made boy versions and boy characters for the most part. Thereís not a lot gender equity successes in the lore. Theyíve tried some to approach it with the gnashing of teeth you might expect.

If you want a samurai Transformer, that is Drift. Although tbh I have never been sure if he was supposed to be a real samurai or a weird poser.

i cant fathom how thered be gnashing of teeth about introducing more women into transformers. do they not belong in the cast of action heroes because these robot women belong in the kitchen? it makes no sense. youd think regressive morons would at least want more women around so that they can pair all the robots together in a hetero way. right now it seems like if there are so many male transformers (why are they gendered) that theyre all gay. which would threaten the kind of chud that doesnt want woman transformers. what a headache. why is this a thing

Yes, we have feathers--but the muscles of men.

I was thinking about this last night. There is no reason I can point to for me being into the hobby of transformer collecting. Iíve got no childhood connection to transformers outside of (I think) owning the first three episodes on a vhs set as a kid. Neither I nor many siblings had much of the toys. I remember I had a dump truck tonka transformer and a Bumblebee Pretender.

I actually had way more of the Beast Wars characters. I loved Inferno, who was a giant ant, and also I had some terrifying mosquito guy, and also I had an elephant combiner. Now, I kind of donít give a drat about the beastformers (as toys, they are not super functional and kind of breakable).

The first summer I was sober, I grabbed a Cliffjumper and a Megatron for the gently caress of it and Iíve been off the deep end ever since. Still cheaper than doing booze and drugs.

I also really like Gundam, mostly because of robots, though the anti-war stuff helps. But I have no idea why I like robots. Thereís no formative experience afaik. Just yayyyy big dumb chunky metal boots. Broad strokes, I think I filled in the massive gap of the identity shattering that happens when you sober up with something really dumb, endless, and fun to look at.

These are my bot thoughts Iíll take my response off the air

Look, you are right, there is no real counter-argument. Itís basic boys club poo poo, ďlet us have our thing!Ē bs, ďdonít make our childhood analogue for jingoistic stories about energy disputes between superpowers political!Ē

Like last week? Two weeks ago? Idk. They released a new Arcee (the usual female Transformer...she is pink. sigh okay)figure screenshot and she was posing with her rear end out, and a lot of people were like, ďhey...donít?Ē And chuds were yíknow, chuds. ďSHES NOT EVEN A HUMANĒ ďYOURE THE ONE MAKING IT WEIRDĒ ďWHO CARES ITS JUST FICTION?Ē

Stop reading the poo poo holes of the internet and acting like that's the entire fandom, dude. I've been to cons, I worked several, I've met people in all the different parts of the fandom. The chuds are just vocal idiots bottled up in their forum hellholes. That's like judging the entire wrestling fandom by wrestle for the plot or w/e that reddit is.

And she's pink because it's a nostalgia act at an insane pricepoint for complete donkeys that buy the overpriced trash that are modern MPs. Referencing a poo poo design from 86 is going to have some dragged forward poo poo.

Yeah I mean, I donít act like that or think that and I donít feel like I said that in any recent posts. I think itís remarkable that chuds get up in their own asses about giant robots so I remarked on it, but itís not some hill Iím going to die on. I didnít mean to offend.

Nah I'm sorry for being snappy I just hate seeing the worst of the fandom repeated. Partially because I think posters here, TF or otherwise, are kinda beating themselves up about how lovely the worst of our fandoms are. There's some real sick fucks holed up and posting about robo-rear end, don't get me wrong either, it's just there's a wide world of TF fans.

In-person Iíve only ever met cool people, often really quiet folk who light up when they get to take about their latest find or their aspirations for a character-based shelf.

I was bringing it up because I think itís so drat weirdóthe whole mess of Transformers is weirdóbut youíre right that itís unfairly provocative. I could have just talked about Sharkticons if I wanted to talk about weird.

As Iíve been slowly encroaching on 40k Iíve noticed how many fandoms 1.) think ďa lot ofĒ people in their fandom suck and 2.) think the supplier of their hobby sucks.
