How did a franchise about alien robots who can disguise themselves as anything (including animals and planet) become so stale? It seems like meaningful addition not only stopped in 2003 but actively went backwards.

It's always about the Autobot/Decepticon war. It always spills over to Earth. Autobots always befriends some human kids. The leaders are always Optimus and Megatron. Cybertron is almost always a dead planet. Characters tend to be picked from the most popular of the early ones. Most of their disguises tend to be vehicles with little variation. Other planets and alien races show up rarely if ever. The bulk of the stories will take place on earth.

It doesn't seem like it should be this limited given the subject but it really is.
