One thing that Teletraan I (the Transformers wiki) has that Brickipedia (the Lego wiki) doesn’t is a sense of humour. Where the latter is very dry and informative, the former is quite happy to poke fun at the eccentricities of it subject. This excerpt, from the entry on a rather ugly Galvatron toy, for example:

“The tank shows very little purple on its hull, presumably to keep it a reasonably realistic representation of a real-life tank. The tank likewise has a giant translucent orange laser cannon that can fire a translucent orange missile, also keeping in the spirit of realistic alt-modes.”

So I was bothered to read the box at the top of this page and realise that there will always be people who object to the having of ‘fun’ in something so important as the online encyclopedia of a children’s toy.
