** Megatron and Optimus's conversation in that same story, which later turns out to have had a much greater effect on Megatron than it did on Optimus, [[spoiler:making him have a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment,]] during ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye''.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Even those who disliked Costa's run seemed to like the CharacterDevelopment he gave [[AntiVillain Thundercracker]], continuing what Shane [=McCarthy=] started in ''TransformersAllHailMegatron'' and ''actually utilizing Thundercracker's bio'' for the first time in forever.

* HarsherInHindsight: Anything involving the Unnamed Senator during "Chaos Theory", once you remember that [[spoiler:it's revealed in ''MTMTE'' that it's Shockwave before he was mutilated and reprogrammed into a monster]].

* CriticalBacklash: The fans who hate this run on the series are so vocal about it, that some fans who go into it expecting a disaster, walk away seeing it as a decent, if flawed, comic.

This is why I hate this series title, it's only supposed to be for the 2009-2011 comic series, not the entire IDW continuity. Arcee is barely in this, and her gender is not touched upon.
* MisaimedFandom: Fans who celebrate Arcee as one of the few female characters in the series (or even worse, as an example of a trans character) tend to forget that he was once a male-coded robot who was given a very forceful, very traumatic sex-change.

** The Revenge of The Decepticons Arc. Some fans see it as the point where the series [[GrowingTheBeard Grew the Beard]], Milne's movie artwork was better received, it saw the return of the main Decepticon forces as well as Megatron [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]] and the storyline made for a better paced gripping race. It's detractors feel that Megatron's return to form abuses TheWorfEffect and the ways he keep winning (including defeating Optimus and then surrendering) turned him into a borderline VillainSue, despite their return, the other Decepticons are barely players, finally Megatron now feels that Humanity is his true WorthyOpponent and goes out of his way to involve them.

* CreatorsPet: This run was the start of Bumblebee completely swallowing the plot in IDW's Transformers continuity. For one thing he takes over leadership of the Autobots in the first arc and gets [[CharacterShilling praise from a bunch of Autobots despite being an abysmal leader]]. Even worse is that this was actually ''enforced'' by Hasbro; Mike Costa wanted to kill Bumblebee off in the first issue but [[ExecutiveMeddling the execs]] refused and made him give Bee a spotlight.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Even those who disliked Costa's run seemed to like the CharacterDevelopment he gave [[AntiVillain Thundercracker]], continuing what Shane [=McCarthy=] started in ''TransformersAllHailMegatron'' and ''actually utilizing Thundercracker's bio'' for the first time in forever. Additionally, many are fond of Bob the Insecticon, Sunstreaker's spiky yet strangely adorable pet and helper-dog and Garnak, the lovable oaf alien who joins up with the Autobots during the "Space Opera" arc and becomes TheLancer to Rodimus.

* DorkAge: The sheer amount of BrokenBase and revile that this run gets pretty cements it as this. * EnsembleDarkhorse: Even those who disliked Costa's run seemed to like the CharacterDevelopment he gave [[AntiVillain Thundercracker]], continuing what Shane [=McCarthy=] started in ''TransformersAllHailMegatron'' and ''actually utilizing Thundercracker's bio'' for the first time in forever. ** Additionally, many are fond of Bob the Insecticon, Sunstreaker's spiky yet strangely adorable pet and helper-dog and Garnak, the lovable oaf alien who joins up with the Autobots during the "Space Opera" arc and becomes TheLancer to Rodimus.

** The Autobots voting Bumblebee into leadership. [[SarcasmMode Who better to lead the Autobots than a nervous scout with poor self esteem and no prior leadership experience]]? Even more galling given the fact that pretty much every other Autobot on Earth completely outranks Bumblebee.

** The Autobots are an unwanted, uninvited occupying force that are also fractious and unable to effectively deal with conspiracies that happen right under their noses.

** * StrawmanHasAPoint: [[spoiler: Jazz killing John Powell. The other Autobots are an unwanted, uninvited occupying force act like he crossed the line but as Jazz rightfully points out, he only did it because Powell was a psycho who was about to murder a group of wounded Autobots in cold blood. Both here and later in ''Robots In Disguise'' it's shown that are also fractious and unable while Jazz does regret it came to effectively deal with conspiracies that happen right under their noses.that, he doesn't exactly feel remorse over killing a guy who was trying to murder his friends.]]

** The * {{Wangst}}: Many consider Optimus surrendering himself to Skywatch after Ironhide's death in the first arc to be this. While it's understandable that he would be deeply upset (Ironhide ''is'' his best friend after all), abandoning the Autobots are an unwanted, uninvited occupying when they need him most and giving himself up to a force that are wants his race dead over the death of a single soldier is just overreacting. Bizarrely it also fractious and unable to effectively deal crosses over with conspiracies AngstWhatAngst; after that happen right under their noses.first arc [[ForgottenFallenFriend Optimus never brings up Ironhide until his return and doesn't seem to mind that he's working with the organization that murdered him]]. He's more angry about [[spoiler: Spike killing Scrapper, a confirmed war criminal and murderer,]] than he is about Ironhide.
