Funny thing about gore, is that robo-gore is perfectly acceptable. It counts as fantasy violence, so you can pack it on without so much as a slap on the wrist. You remember how Bulkhead told Miko to look away as he disemboweled that Vehicon? He didn't realize that on Earth, robo-gore is a-okay.

I want to see the TF franchise break away from the norm of saturday morning cartoons on my TV, not be all CG like TF Prime, even though Prime is going down the right path so far...
It's not too much for most fans to handle, it's just too incomprehensible for people to handle. MGS2 ending, for instance.
You watch Galaxy force, and you'll get just a tiny amount of what I'm getting at. The episode centered around Wingsaber, Lori, and Thunderblast is classic in BOTH the subbed and dubbed versions
I haven't watched Cybertron, nor do I intend to. But if you're going to use that as the pinnacle of Japanese-based Transformers storytelling, that creates a problem; like how 25% of the series is dedicated to unnecessary race scenes.
That, and they still couldn't animate a Transformers decently.

Did you see the Michael Bay movies? You know, one of the highest-grossing movie franchises in recent history? The film series that yanked us out of niche, kicking and screaming, and showed our hobby to the masses, to have literal boatloads of cash thrown back? The ones with both human and robo-gore in nearly equal amounts? You look at that and tell me Transformers have to be tame.
