>SJWs don't buy it and cry "cultural appropriation" over the decision to give an alien robot Japanese geisha face paint- which is admittedly weird because she's never been to or heard of Earth in the comics used to hype her

>SJW pandering- the franchise
>didn't start that way but creator was forced out because she could not stand Hasbro's bullshit and SJW media declared Lauren Faust as an enemy of all women because she did not go along with feminazi propaganda
>IDW openly includes blatant SJW messages in the comics and CEO of company laughed at people who complained

Whats the punch line here?

I like Windblade. She at least stand out from all the texture swap fembots.


IDW was awful even before every title leaned SJW. They're Sonichu-tier. It's not just Transformers, all their books are crap. They used to have some good licenses but got rid of them/let the licenses lapse/had them taken away because "not SJW enough" I guess. They used to publish Duke Nukem comics, now they have Jem in its place, which is literally Tumblr: the comic book.

As for OP, Hasbro has "pandered" to them since the fucking 80s, why is this a surprise? What surprises me is how many /pol/tards actually buy their crap when Hasbro is so blatant about it.



This. Despite her special ability in the comic, she doesn't come off as a blatantly feminist Mary Sue character. And Hasbro subverted the usual "diversity-pandering female character is a lesbian because PROGRESSIVE" bullshit by making her have a flirty, borderline romantic relationship with one of the male Bots in the cartoon (some Tumblrinas actually flipped their shit about this, saying she should have been paired with that female Autobot cop instead).

And complaining about her design is hypocritical, if you look at Drift whose whole personality and design are "robot samurai".

"You can't shoot for shit, Shockwave!"


As a kid, I always thought that robots having genders was dumb. They should be above that nonsense.


Omg! Hot!

Yeah but Shockwave is a scary dude though. You know he tried freeze the entire multiverese into a singular moment? This dudes over here trying to stop time! Jhiaxus's best student.

Pre war Cybertron this guys an autobot senator or somekind of politian. He starts noticing things are getting outta hand, he starts saying something about it, what do they do? They cut his goddamn face off!

It's a barbaric as fuck legal sentence called "Empurata" where they take their face and sometimes their hands then give'em these shit clamp hands. It's why whirl doesn't have hands or a face.

>>3490912 Yeah but they totally do though. There's a 1:12 male to female ratio.

How ever on cybertron gender is more a personality and aesthetics thing than a reproduction thing.

Transformers reporduce 3 ways. A Transformer is either cold casted ;which is when they are built or manfactured, forged; meaning they arose from the Allspark wel created from the death of solus prime, or they are budded; which is when a transformers body becomes aware of a shortage in numbers and just sorta decides to become pregnat without any conscious concent from the transformer the themself. Molten metal growth in a metalic uterus that froms on the transformers abdomen a protoform ( the term for a baby or young kid transformer) develops until the end of the gestation period and then just sorta explodes out on the ground. It is extremely painful. I don't know for certain but I'm pretty sure most any transformer has the ability to bud others. I do know it is not something that happens exclusively to female cybertronians.

Jhiaxus was particularly interested in the implications of gender. Apparently he performed a bunch of weirdo experiments on Arcee. Which is why in the idw generations continuity she's so such a pyscho. Later they got trapped in this fucked up place pretty sure it was like an undeadzone universe or some shit, but it was somewhere you couldn't die, like you could be killed but you wouldn't die. So apparently she just keeps brutally murdering Jhiaxus over and over until they got out of there somehow. Which may have something to do with why Jhiaxus looks less mighty and bad ass like he used to, later has this withered nervous bureaucrat look.

>>3490902 It's not dumb yo! It's an interesting story.
In the distant past Unicorn and Primus we're like one entity exploring the cosmos. It became increasingly divided on how to approach reality. It became so internally divided it split into two beings. Unicorn who just wanted eat sleep and kick ass and Primus who wanted help, create, and had a since of right and wrong. They kicked each other's ass for... well... kinda awhile. Primus was smarter than Unicorn (although Unicorn is no dummy either), by a considerable margin but couldn't quite ever defeat Unicorn who was like way more psycho, so what he did was trap himself and Unicorn in these dense metallic asteroids. He shut him self down, turned into Cybertron and split himself into 13 different waaaaaaaay smaller individuals who became the first 13 primes. The idea was if he couldn't figure out how defeat Unicorn, maybe a team of smaller bots built in his image might do the trick.

Solus prime was the 1 female out of 12 males. It's why there's that ratio. She was like the engineer goto gadget person the "crafter" of the bunch. Megatronus( the brooding loaner of the bunch) was really into her, and she was all totally into him, but then this one time he got all pissed off and got in some heated argument with her over some super gun she crafted called the "requiem blaster" and he ends up killing her. And then he's all "Noooo! What the fuck did I just do Fuuuuuuck!". It's super sad, but the good news is when her blood spilled on the planets surface there was this major chemical reaction that took place and like her body like dissolves and melts into the ground and it froms this gaping planetary birthing vagina that becomes the "well of the Allspark". Cybertronian life that crawls out of the well is said to be "forged".



>want to pander to SJWs

stopped reading


JRO ruined MTMTE the moment he introduced Lug/Anode. That transgender shit is unbelievable. All this pronoun swapping for robots who have NO USE for gender whatsoever. He could've stuck to alt mode dysphoria, which actually can make sense considering Functionist society and what not, but not gender dysphoria. He's pandering to SJWs so hard in Lost Light it's become unreadable. Not to mention he's sucking himself off by having his OC Rung be so needed in LL.

And it's just not the same without Milne's slick artwork.
And then the SJW community drove off one of Transformer's remaining 2d animators over this shit because they didn't agree with having genders in this show. Absolutely fucking retarded.

The only robot who's known to be an actual 'female' is Arcee, and that's only because Jhiaxus altered her himself; there was never a real female. The rest of them are just pronouns based on how they look.

>/furi/ is overrun by /pol/
>many of these companies do legit pander to the SJW crowd in a bad way

Even if it is, it's not exactly false.

IDW is doing the "forced progressive" thing where a character will be a biracial, bisexual and have other issues and their entire character will be about those few traits and reminding us of those traits constantly. GI Joe replaced a long-established white male character with a bulky mixed-race lesbian solely for this. Their Transformers comics are confusing, poorly-written shit to start with that are basically terrible fan fiction, but then they added fag robots and transgender shit, often changing established characters miserably or ignoring past stories, just to they can push this shit. Sentinel Prime was pushed as a racist Trump wannabe, despite being an Autobot, solely because the toy is orange. They could have done this with Megaton, an expected character, but he's an Autobot now? This shit justifies book burning.

This is not progressive, this is shoving shit down out throats to try and make people accept it, which has the opposite effect- we see it as propaganda and hate the idea of it.
