Actually, it was the TFW2005 and Seibertron both that I was met with very immature fans! The fact that I'm hearing from those sites that people were so enraged about Optimus having flames that they broke into Michael Bay's house and ramsacked speaks volumes of some of the hard core fans.
I like the Transformers that we did get on screen, I love them in fact, but that's the thing, the last two movies seem to downplay the Transformers and go overboard with OTT characters that I really don't think even the casual audience could give a rat's ass about.
