I'm not saying there weren't good ideas, because I agree, there were, but when it comes to Transformers in general, I just find it to lose its magic. I liked some of the stuff in the Marvel run, but I don't think IDW has ever come up with a good TF comic and DW only had the first WWI story that was good (except Grimlock being there made no sense), the rest of their stuff was crap. Plus, if I recall, the comic made Galvatron a seperate entity from Megatron, and that was utter nonsense.
Have you checked out IDW's two TF books since Mike "I'm burned out by writing giant robots" Costa left? It's so much better!
