Do there exist G1 haters?
Yes. Their names are Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Michael Bay.
My opinion below,i state nothing as fact.
If anyone is the G-1 MORE haters,It's all the IDW TF Comics writters minus Simon furman.
At the very least robert,alex & micheal made billions for the TF francise & bought in newer fans/viewers/money. they made transformers more popular & helped hasbro sell more TF toys.
Please don't read further if you don't want to be spoiled.
In issue #30 of the TF G-1 Ongoing by IDW,They killed off 3 faction leaders who fans/hasbro regards as Stars of the francise. in one singular issue #30,galvatron,megatron & optimus prime got killed. they probably won't be in any 2012 TF IDW G-1 on-going comics,maybe in flash backs but not in present time.
IDW,Also made bumblebee the autobot supreme faction leader in the TF G-1 On-going comic.
Galvatron & megatron are 2 different persona's/sparks/beings.
Goldbug & bumblebee are not the same persona/spark. similar to megatron & galvatron their different beings/sparks/persona's.
IMHO,The Chaos saga was pure garbage. it looks like it was written by a 5 year old or by those TFCC comic book writters.
Worst of all,in issue #29 of the TF G-1 On-going. the earth bound decepticons appear on cybertron out of the blue. later it's explained when megatron got his new body,the decepticons built a space bridge inside his body. that space bridge in megatron's body is how the earth bound decepticons arrived on cybertron.
Currently issue #31 of the IDW TF G-1 on-going refers to optimus prime as dead. even though it's extremly clear optimus used the matrix to defeat the D-VOID & pushed him back to where the D-void came from. then optimus followed the D-void to his home & killed him with the matrix of leadership. SO OPTIMUS IS CLEARLY "MIA" not dead.
I find it kinda funny/ironic ironhide refers to megatron as MIA but optimus he refers to as dead. it was abundantly clear Megatron got a huge blast thrown at him by the Deceptigod & megatron got vaporized into dust.
I just can't get to excited about the 2012 IDW TF G-1 On-going Comic year. as three faction leaders are gone. bumblebee is in command of the autobots.
At best i'm looking forward to simon furman's Re-generation TF comic book series that will consist of 80.5 thru 100 comic issues.
