There are too many new Transformers I want... I need to get rid of some more to make room.

Baboo- it's delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "Baboo" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This Baboo isn't a spaceship, he's a time machine. He goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the Baboo. It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.
John Byrne is Right Again:
On Aging Characters....
"It's worse than a cliché. It's just ol' fashion lazy writing. It's EASY to "move forward" with fictional characters. What requires thought and effort is writing eternally "in the middle".
It's also very selfish when writers, editors and readers alike want the characters to "grow and change" to reflect their changing needs. I started reading Batman comics when I was six years old, once considered the ideal starting age. I would not have been interested in the Batman who is currently to be found in so many comics that bear his name (and I would have been most off-put by how many "different Batmen" there are).
Those who want the characters to "grow and change" want to deny to new readers the very pleasures that drew them (the "grow and change" advocates) to the comics in the first place!"
"As I have mentioned more times than I can count, the PROBLEM lies with the noisier fans, and the editors and writers who respond to them.
Superhero comics were created as juvenile fiction, cut from much the same cloth as Tom Swift or the Hardy Boys. They could be read by all ages, of course, provided older readers approached them with the proper attitude.
Unfortunately, too many of those older readers did NOT do this, and, rather than reading for about five years and then moving on, as had been the case for so long, not only stuck around but insisted that the characters be reshaped to meet their own changing needs.
The best analogy, as I have said, is of the sports car driver who marries and has kids and then complains that his sports car isn't big enough to carry the family and the dog and the groceries. That guy would be considered an idiot."
Why do you still have signatures turned on?
