Transformers is a media franchise, produced by Japanese toy company Takara Tomy and American toy company Hasbro. Initially a line of transforming mecha toys rebranded from Takara's Diaclone and Microman toylines, the toy line began in 1984 with the Transformers toy line, and centers on extraterrestrial factions of sentient self-configuring modular robotic lifeforms (often the Autobots and the Decepticons) in an endless civil war. In its history, the Transformers franchise has expanded to encompass comic books, animation, video games and films. However, the franchise also has a toxic fandom as well.

Why They're Not Worthy To The Autobots and Decepticons

  1. They can get really divided into multiple and confusing groups, most common ones are the G1, Beast Machines, Michael Bay films, Animated, Prime, or the Bumblebee film.
  2. Many of them are nostalgia-tards since they honor G1 from the mid 80s to early 90s while hating on newer shows from the franchise and the Transformers live action movies, and filled with 5-12 year old boys, and call anything they hate "girly". If you were like a newer series, even if it is a sequel to G1, or if it is a reboot, they won't tolerate to bring force against you, especially the movie continuity.
    • Most refuse to give any of the newer series a chance. Beast Wars? Terrible. Beast Machines? Terrible. Robots in Disguise '01/Car Robots? Terrible. Unicron Trilogy? Terrible. Movie Pentalogy? Terrible. Animated? Terrible. Alinged? Terrible. Cyberverse? Terrible. It goes on if you think about it.
    • They can even say a series is automatically terrible (i.e. when they first saw Robots in Disguise '15/Adventure and Cyberverse).
      • They insult Beast Wars: Transformers, a sequel to G1, just because they thought that A. Beast Machines: Transformers, its sequel, gave it a bad reputation, and B. They think it emphasized furries, and they even insult Transformers: Animated and Transformers: Robots in Disguise '15 just because they're "rip-offs" of Teen Titans and Super Sentai respectively.
    • Also most of these fans haven't even watched the whole series or films.
  3. They just flat-out act superior or deluding themselves that they are in charge to every other fandom, similar to the known fandoms of Shrek or JoJo.
  4. There's a lot of crappy fanart within this community.
    • A small amount of them tend to make objectophilic art of the robots (Mostly out of Arcee), and make questionable art of the humans, especially the main humans, which in most cases tend to be under the age of 18, meaning they can be pedophiles.
  5. They also start riots with the My Little Pony fandom.
    • In fact, when they saw Transformers and MLP have an official crossover in IDW in 2014, the fans went apeshit crazy started even more flamewars with said fandom, despite the latter fandom is just as bad.
      • Rainbow Dash winning the Rainbow Dash vs Starscream death battle didn't do any good either.
  6. They're blind to Optimus Prime and refuse to give Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ultra Magnus (Who is sometimes brother of Optimus Prime), or even Optimus Primal (His descendant) a chance to be leader of the Autobots. As well to Megatron and refuse to give Starscream, Soundwave, Shockwave, etc. a chance to be leader of the Decepticons.
  7. They insult Japanese Transformers series and calls them weeaboo Transformers, which is hypocritical because Japan also had G1 dubbed and ironic enough, the basis of G1's toyline, Diaclone and Microman were both made in Japan!
  8. They are also hypocritical in the fact that they insulted the Kiss Players series for being "perverted", but on the side of the soda can, the fandom sometimes produces NSFW art.
  9. To apply alcohol on the wounded area, they've sent death threats to Michael Bay! Yes, Michael Bay is not a good director, but are five movies worth killing over a director just because he did poorly over said films?
    • Despite the Movie Pentalogy ending on a cliffhanger with The Last Knight being a box office disappointment, and having an prequel dedicated to just Bumblebee released in December 2018, they would not let off their hate of Michael Bay off, similar to that of the Thomas the Tank Engine Fandom (Toxic Portion) and Hatedom and how they still wouldn't let their hate of Sharon Miller off.
  10. They were so envious that Bumblebee got his very own solo movie and ranted "WE WANT OPTIMUS PRIME!!!!11!!!!1!!", however it would just expand into a worse hexalogy and so forth.
    • In fact, they're blind to the point they blast their anger out on every single one of the films, even the 2007 one and not give them a chance, regardless if they're obvious cash grabs or not. Sure, they're not very good, but they still loathe them, even without seeing the goddamn films.
      • So that's the reason why the Golden Raspberry Awards always nominated the movies every bloody year, including Worst Picture. Because of the film Director (Michael Bay), the producers, actors and because of the low score by Rotten Tomatoes despite of the highest grossing box office hit, but in reality both of G1 Fanboys and Razzies haven't even watched any of those films!
  11. Sometimes, fans of the live action films are no better, since they either compare Bumblebee is better than most of, or it is nothing like Michael Bay's movies.
  12. They trash on any franchise that have transforming robots and call them "rip-offs" (Most notably Machine Robo/Attack of the Gobots, Chōsoku Henkei Gyrozetter, Retrobot, and Robocar Poli, or the obscure Attack of the Gobots). Even if some came right before Transformers.
    • Now they're also claiming that Robocar Poli is a South Korean cartoony rip-off of Transformers as well as the Filipino toy version called Foldabots, and started taking the blame on Square Enix for the videogame/anime series Chōsoku Henkei Gyrozetter as well as Young Toys and Retrobot for Tobot as a Transformers Rip-off in Japan and South Korea even it's not a Rip-off of Hasbro's toyline!

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Some of the fans of the franchise are mature enough that they give the newer series a chance and don't produce NSFW art at all.
  2. Like all fandoms, they make cool fanart, fanfictions and cosplays.
  3. There are also Female Transformers fans too which they also like MLP both.
    • Some good Transformers fans do get along with and/or are also bronies as well.
  4. Some of the fans actually make unique OCs.
    • In fact, in a 2014 contest, they voted for a fan-character to be born in the Transformers lore (Thus, Windblade was born).
  5. They do have a point that Michael Bay is a flawed director. But despite of that there are few minorities like the Movie Pentalogy.
    • Some fans want Sam Witwicky to return to the film franchise despite of his fate on the film altough that Shia Labeouf already quit the franchise, having Mark Walhberg playing the role as Cade.
      • Altough some G1 fans hate the Movie pentatology, but when they see the trailer of Bumblebee movie, some fans got a mixed to positive reaction.
  6. They do have a point that some series like Beast Machines: Transformers, Energon, Kiss Players, the majority of the Movie Pentalogy (Sometimes the 2007 movie as well), and Robots in Disguise '15/Adventure were average, although some tolerated the flaws, and considered them mediocre.
  7. The portion of people who liked Angry Birds Transformers game is somewhat small.
