Cute.Hi, welcome to the Allspark! I see you're new to Transformers fandom. Don't worry, you'll get the hang of things soon!
Aesthetics are a weird thing to pin down admittedly, but people acting like they make a G1-ified Bulkhead ruined
And Rescue Bots has their weird aura about it. Be it fans who would be too protective of its aesthetic and not take a G1-ish attempt well, or just people who enjoy its little kid-friendly design and think anything beyond what we got officially wouldn't be true to its design ethos...
There just seems to be no way to win from Hasbro's perspective. Even an aesthetically faithful Generations release would get "you made a character designed for little kids way too complex" blowback.
