Do Kids Really Like Kicker?!

I was talking to a co-worker's son (who is 10) and we were talking about Transformers. I was telling him all about the G1 cartoon and how cool it was and all the G1 toys I had when I was a kid. Well, we then started talking about the Energon cartoon and toys and he said how cool he thought Kicker was. He then said how he and all of his friends wish there was a Kicker action figure and how they hope one gets made. I asked him who he an his friends thought was the best character on the show and again he said Kicker!

Now, I respect the kids opinion but I know when I was a kid I would've never wanted a character like Kicker on the show, I was all about the 'Bots. I kind of found it disappointing that kids would pick a human character to be the best when the show is supposed to focus on the robots.

In a way, its a role model, and a person they can relate to and imagine themselves being. I know i couldnt imagine myself as a huge transforming robot, but pretnding to be a kid who gets o fight alongside the robots, that'd be pretty cool for them @smilepunch@

You're probably right. The way you put it does make Kicker seem more tolerable. I guess I'm looking at it from more a collector's standpoint. I still hate Kicker though.

 

atleast hes not as bad as the kids from armada

I think Kicker is the best human character ever created for Transformers. Unlike previous "fleshies" who often had to rely on the bots for protection (and more often than not hardly impacted the average story, even though they somehow save the entire TRansformers race), Kicker has shown he can hold his own in a fight and is not reliant on the bots.

 

Plus he is about the most bad-assed character since Blurr's intro in Armada

Indeed! Going all ape$#!+ on Alpha Q with the Energon Saber was quite interesting.

I reallly dont like or dislike kicker,

Please teacher! Hey hey youdo have some taste after all lego:)

 

 

Allso I fully agree with quickshift another reason why kicker may seem so good is that the transformers peronalitlys all SUCKASS! I mean cripes! The humans are the only entertaining thing on the series aside from the fights :) which are dull at best THunk Ooo owee Im hit whatever shall I do @loll@

 

At least when kicker gets smacked around the odd time theres some emotion into it @loll@

I could do with out the color changing hair but Kicker is a decent character, as said better then all the other human characters that came before him. Heck the only TF character that I would say is better would probably be Shockblast, but there hasn't really been enough of him yet.

Yeah, Shockblast is doing very well, very badass. Loved seeing him mixing it up with Tidal Wave.
