    Compare the two

    1986 Soundtrack was solid, 2007 Soundtrack is about 50/50 on good to bad songs

    1986 Characters looked different and made you cry when one died 2007 characters all looked alike in robot and made you wish you were watching the Unicron Trilogy instead.

    1986 had good hand drawn animation 2007 version had really great CGI effects.

    Keep the list going...

    the 1986 version had the transformers as the main characters, i personally enjoy watching the 86 version as to the 07 version. the 07 version really lacks any sense of heroism like the 86 version did, non of the autobots take on a challange that is way out of there league and turn out on top, it doesn't have that underdog vibe to it, which to me, is what the heart of transformers is.

    07 movie's soundtrack was flawless, (the stuff thats in the actual movie)
    86 movie features "dare to be stupid" and retarded junkion dance party.

    86 movie killed prime
    07 movie let prime live and the people rejoiced


    You can't be serious about this one. honestly, none of them look alike.

    86 had corny lines.
    07 has hardly any corny lines.

    Corny lines FTW!

    1986 had 2 seasons to pull from.
    2007 is all new to kick off the new story.

    This is the most ridiculous comparison I have ever seen. I love the 86 movie, but it is nowhere near being able to even think about competing with the live action awesomeness we have just witnessed.

    The Armada version of the characters weren't the loved versions. G1 Prime wouldn't be sneaking around a house.

    1986 jazz lives but fades into obscurity
    2007 jazz dies but lives on as a fan favourite BECAUSE of his death

    1986 uses a bunch of lightsaber sfx
    2007 doesn't

    1986 both fall
    2007 only one falls

    yeah

    armada? what?

    and no, he wouldnt sneak around a house. why? because G1 threw "robots in disguise" out the window. G1 prime would knock on the door and tell the parents what they were looking for and they'd be like "sure, prime!" because G1 completely failed at the "alien robot" aspect.

    How many of those songs are actually in the movie?

    there's two soundtrack CDs.
