These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
God-Mode Sue: Circuit Breaker. Being a Poorly Disguised Pilot designed by the writer Budiansky as a fallback career, most of her Budiansky appearances are about establishing how awesome Circuit Breaker is while using the titular Transformers as punching bags.
Circuit Breaker only fits as a God-Mode Sue physically. In pretty much all her appearances, she's shown to be so irrational about Transformers (admittedly, she's been through a seriously traumatic event due to Shockwave - she definitely has PTSD) that she almost always makes the situation worse.
They Wasted A Perfectly Good Line Art: John Ridgway's black and white art in the UK comic is very detailed and realistic. About half the pages had colour added in the original release, and they were all completely recoloured for the American re-release; in both cases, the colour took out a lot of what made it impressive.
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Grimlock as Autobot leader seemed a fantastic concept, especially with an introductory story of him learning to respect humans and that a good leader needs more than strength. He promptly develops Aesop Amnesia and turns into The Caligula, sitting on a throne wearing a crown, beating up his troops and showing no interest in fighting Decepticons. Incredibly, the only one bothered enough to stand up to him is Blaster and just as the storyline builds to a confrontation between them, all the Earthbound Autobots disappear for four issues (during which Blaster was left stuffed in a cupboard and forgotten by everyone). There's a one issue wrap up where the delayed confrontation is interrupted by a Decepticon attack, then they all disappear for another four issues by which time Optimus Prime's back and the whole storyline's forgotten.
