You're not in my opinion. Andrew did some great things with that FOC design in RiD.

I do appreciate Alpha Bravo in the back very much.

This is just a response to people who say that Combiner Wars is dumb because they are making non-combiner characters into combiners.

Like Optibotimus says, he loves G1, but he is not a G-whiner. I am the same way, and I think we all should be the same way. Sure it is great to get a figure that is very close to G1, (like Generations Arcee for example), it sparks our nostalgia! But if transformers keeps with the same formula, where is the creativity? Kids aren't interested in the same characters and formulas over and over, and neither am I. Hasbro, IDW, Takara, all of them want change, and so do I. We need something fresh, sure we have the classic old characters like Optimus, Bumblebee, and Megatron, but what is wrong with some new versions of characters? I don't mind a combining Ironhide, Cyclonus or Prowl, it makes it interesting!

So that's my two cents, bring it on haters! :michaelbay:

I love the Aerialbots drawing! And I really, really hope some 3P makes an add on that allows Alpha Bravo to become a backpack or another weapon or something!
Personally, when I get Quickslingshot, I'll stick him on Superion for symmetry and get a badass loner cape for Alpha Bravo, maybe I'll have him wield Powerglide too 8)

And that's the one thing I don't get.

Why is there so much hate towards Alpha Bravo, but people are perfectly fine with Powerglide being an Aerialbot, when he wasn't an Aerialbot back in the day?

I agree to a lot of what you said except that Optibotimus is not a g-whiner. He is a perfect example of a GEEWUN/G-whiner. He has superion mistransformed just so it looks like the cartoon model because "that looks better" he complains on a regular basis on reviews to a point where I don't watch him anymore.

Because he's a helicopter and to some crybabies that's heracy. Just like how a truck(off-road) shouldn't be with stunticons.Yet no one has a problem with a semi truck being part of a group of stunt cars or a space shuttle with military vehicles.

But do you watch his Bayverse toy reviews? The review of Superion, although I agree, he did get annoying, but it is supposed to look like an updated g1 combiner. He is perfectly fine with the other transformers shows and stuff, like transformers Prime, and the movies, but when it is supposed to be a G1 combiner in the cartoon, then he wants to make it look as close to the g1 toy as possible that he had as a kid. The think I am worried about though, is whether or not he'll complain about a combining Ironhide and Cyclonus or not.

He's too critical of toys and he will complain about the whole 84 guys(ironhide prowl sunstreaker mirage) combining, I guarantee it. But I don't watch them anymore because he's too critical...and because his lighting set up is atrocious. So many people have said his reviews would be better if he tones down the lighting and he responds with "I don't care what you think" I personally have gotten that response. Even when he was asking for opinions when he changed the lighting! I tried watching the Quickslinger review and you couldn't see the damn toy!

And if you don't wanna read the comics fine but go to tfwiki and look up the summary at least. Sounds like an idiot when he says "I don't read the comic so I don't know anything about this and don't tell me in the comments about it because I don't care"

I apologize, it's just annoying and I've just decided I'm not giving him my views because it's kind of unprofessional on how he views some stuff.

I know Optibotimus gets irritating sometimes, but I'm perfectly fine with watching a new review from him for help with the transformation. Hey! Why don't we complain about Baltmatrix complaining about lack of paint in EVERY SINGLE REVIEW! -_-

Back to combiner wars, please. >:oP

Edit: I agree Optibotimus needs to tone down with the lighting, if I watch him for too long, my eyes start to hurt! :P
