If anyone is playing this Transformers Forged to Fight game, I started an alliance called [TFLeg] Transformers Legacy that everyone here is welcome to join.

Hi there! Most of the offending posters are blocked at this point, but the comments section of Knockout's entry became so godawful that I feel like I need to stop such a travesty from occurring again! So here's a few of my most commonly asked and answered questions and comments. I love interacting with people and I definitely don't want to discourage comments, it just gets a little tiresome having to answer the same things over and over again, so I'm hoping this FAQ will save everyone some time!

1) What is Transformers Legacy? / Is this for a comic/fanfic?
Transformers Legacy is basically an "if I were in charge of Transformers". It consists mostly of redesigned preexisting characters, but there have been a few originals sprinkled in here and there. I typically take my favorite bits and pieces of previous incarnations of the Transformers brand and stitch them together into a horrifying Frankenstein's monster of continuity. Legacy consists solely of character art and biographies for the individuals I deem interesting enough to include in the project. There is a loose story driving the "plot" of Legacy, which is told piecemeal through the bios. Although I'd love to do so in a perfect world with infinite money and resources, I don't have any plans to make Legacy into a comic, fanfic series, or animated series. And no, I'm not going to submit my ideas to Hasbro because that's not how the world works, kids.

2) Why did you do _____? / Is _____ a reference to _____?
Please read the whole description of an entry before asking a question! I spend a lot of time writing both the character's bio and commentary, which combined should cover just about everything about the character from an in-universe perspective as well as my creative process in designing them and what's an homage to what. If you have a question about the character that's not covered in the description, ask away!

3) Will you be doing [insert character here]? / Can you do [insert character here] next?
At least through the end of Series 3, the characters for forthcoming entries are set in stone. Since I want to preserve some manner of surprise, I'm no longer going to be addressing questions about who I'll be doing in the future. If you do enough digging, you might be able to find mention of a few characters I've confirmed that have yet to appear, but I'd like the majority of Series 3 to stay secret. And I can't do everyone's favorite character, sadly.

4) When is the next entry coming out?
I truthfully will never have a straightforward answer to this unless I'm a day or two away from finishing it. I think people take for granted how much work goes into each character for Legacy from the design stage through to the final illustration. The absolute best I've been able to manage is about one entry per month, and it usually doesn't last long. I often don't have the free time to dedicate to the more intensive aspects of the design process, and I have other interests and projects that frequently take precedence over Legacy. Asking when the next entry is going to be finished isn't going to make it come any faster - if anything, it's actively discouraging.

5) Your tech specs are wrong.
That's not a question, but a statement I detest so much I already wrote a separate journal addressing it!

I'm trying to be more patient when addressing comments, but if I continue to see people repeatedly ignoring the text portions of my submissions or generally having a shitty, entitled attitude, I'm just going to block them. Also, I have a zero tolerance policy for spammers - if you only came here to advertise your crap or bombard my notes with pictures of Power Rangers zords (why would you do this?) you're getting banned on the spot. Otherwise just use good judgment and you'll be fine.

okay I know this seem like a strange question but if you were to make a Godzilla game how would you do it and what would the roster be?
MaxPowers94 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2017
So did you get a chance to see the Shin Godzilla?
CyRaptor Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2017
Not yet.
MaxPowers94 Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2017
Yeah it's different but it's still Godzilla and that's enough for me.
