I get "beast-formers have lazy transformations", "organic robots are just weird", and other rational reasons, or just plain preference of vehicles over beasts, but the extreme negative reactions are just absurd.
I think the problem is that when beast mode transformers are done badly they are done REAALLLLLLLY badly. Head hands, shellformers, very strange faces, awkward looking kibble etc. Even though there are good Beastformers the percentage that are good or even passable seems to be lower than it is with cars or jets (makes sense, given how much practice HasTak have at vehicles)and those bad ones just stick in the memory.
