Pft, you don't have to bow out.
Walky, who for years, has been one of the most vocal people in the fandom is taking offense at this?
What's funny, is that even he isn't happy with how Motormaster turned out. Whether you wanted Prime or Wreck-gar, no one thought it was going to be another black Prime mold to represent Motormaster. The point of his comic is that despite his feelings and despite that perhaps FP should be called out on this choice, he is going to argue for it for the sake of being contrarian.
Also, he takes potshots at all the other TF websites, well, ok...Seibs, TFW, and sometimes TFormers. (never AllSpark since that's his home) Last year it was TFW that he took a little shot at. Never will he deal with things in the fandom directly, it will always be like this, a little potshot via his own website, where his own supporters will be there to reinforce how great the idea was. Just to be fair on the matter in regards to my comments here...if you've read this and take offense to it, whomever you are...PM me or send me some email at iLoveCounterpunch @ seibertron.com and we'll chat it right up.
So, it's obvious that BotCon isn't going to wither and die like it was perhaps going to 5 years ago. At what point can the choices made in regards to the convention be opened up for a harsher public scrutiny? The golden egg isn't going to shatter any more. Is the only means of providing feedback on the toys to attend the convention and fill out the paperwork there?
