This is 3/8th (37.5%) Bumblebees. This is 7/8ths (87.5%) Autobots. This is why I am always complaining about finding too many Autobots and not enough Decepticons in general and why, in specific, I am always complaining about too many Bumblebees.

Seriously, I find myself genuinely wishing that Bumblebee and Optimus Prime fall into a plot hole for a whole season, so I can finally enjoy some toy focus on characters who aren't them.

Alas, the heroes are the ones who sell best, so they get the most stuff.

Where have all the Rakshas gone? :( (I used to buy pretty much only bad guys when I was younger.)

They're out there, just that they don't make enough of a dent in sales compared to the target audience.

It could be worse, though - it could be like Kamen Rider villains that 99 times out of 100 wind up as overpriced, online store exclusives.

I kind of liked that the Decepticons were more powerful but less numerous, but this is pretty ridiculous. They're just milking the franchise at this point, so I wouldn't expect too much integrity or thought, even if the product quality is okay.

I would not really say they are more powerful, show-wise. Their level of power really varies depending on who is holding the Idiot Ball, such that 'Actionmaster Bumblebee with no guns riding a lemon truck' can beat up Starscream.

Well, I was thinking G1. The power of flight was an advantage, if nothing else. The dinobots kind of screwed up that balance right away, at any rate!
