A little awhile ago I read an article for Kotaku that a group of Transformers fans voted on the next combiner. They voted on the name, gender, modes & color scheme that the final project will have. After very thing was said & done with. At the final look of the new Transformers & the big Transformer it makes. I'm a little shock that it looks odd to me.
At time I can tell what is a great way to make diehard fans love a company that produces good toys for years & enjoys the feedback from there fans. So that they can get better ideas on where to go in the future. The thing that kill this idea is the same 2 color scheme that we see in all the new Transformers.
I'm not personally against voting for a new idea, but somethings are just a bad idea to do with a big fan base & going to have a few people (like me) think "What is going on here." Plus it make the company look like it's desperate to push out a new character for there product line.
I've had said from time to time that "There are such thing as a bad idea." I this case it was just a good idea that just backfire. I hope that we do get more chances to make a great toy line better then it was before the companies ask for our input.
