Any minute now...

Fans realize something Hasbro does not, that robust 25-year-old billion-dollar franchises, while seemingly healthy, are in actuality as fragile as two bricks tied together with tissue paper. One mistake, one bad mis-step will cause the entire thing to shatter and fall apart; and Transformers would be ruined forever.

Fortunately, part of the fandom has resolved to remain "ever vigilant" against something that could Ruin Transformers Forever, and call out a warning if they see something that could potentially do so.

Some Transformers conservationists suggest a more extreme approach, that Transformers franchise should abandon all attempts at re-invention and instead cater exclusively to the old-school collectors. Though attractive, this approach may prove impractical as a long-term solution.

"Ruined Forever" remains a serious threat to Transformers now and in the foreseeable future, though it's possible a proposed initiative requiring all Transformers fans to purchase an annual "plastic offset" could ensure our fragile brand's existence through the mid-21st century.

Things that have Ruined Transformers Forever in the past

In other words — pretty much everything but the first two seasons of the cartoon (well, excluding one episode, but even the GEEWUNNERS think it's bad) and the early comics.
