I'm cool with Transformers having genders. It's natural (within the history of the franchise) for alien cybernetic organisms to eventually evolve and adapt. Perhaps being so closely acquainted with Earth, they eventually "transformed" their CDNA to be male/female? In fact, I would assume within the science of the franchise that they could switch between genders if they so chose technically speaking! All I wanna see is Transformer-bewbs. Just kidding. :D

I guess I'm too old school when it comes to the comics. I like Regeneration best because it's what I liked then and it's nostalgic for me to read now... but the story has come so far from the one I grew up with, I'm not even a big fan of Regeneration like I was with the Marvel comics. It was more Earth-based and had some recurring human characters and now everything's changed. Buster's a cyborg, Spike's dead GB Blackrock is Professor X or something. It's all so far-fetched now (as if it wasn't back then, haha!).

Bottom line is I will have to "transform" my own preferences to continue enjoying the franchise as a whole because it will have to constantly evolve and re-invent itself in order to continue being popular. I'm not a big fan of the Beast Hunters toys as I was never a fan of brightly-colored animal-bots but my kids like them so I have to compromise and find things about them I do like. There has always been things about the franchise that I liked and didn't like but it's like they always say "can't please all of the people all of the time" so I'm just glad there are still parts of Transformers that I do still like and hope to continue to like it.

on the subject of MTMTE comics, i still disagree with Ryan and Jon about the excessive humor. i DID go back and reread the old issues, and i DID think the dialogue sometimes seemed a little too lighthearted, but not to the degree that you say. i think James Roberts makes the conversationalist side work well. And some of those moments that you posted i agree are blatantly wisecracking, but some i can't think for the life of me why they're there. Although, i absolutely agree with you with regards to RID. There have been times where humor has been attempted in that storyline that falls completely on its face. 80% of RID seems like "The war is over, but look at what we all had to stoop to to keep Cybertron together"
