Hi. I was thinking about this... I always loved G1, and in the final season we got to know the creators of the Transformers, the Quintessons. And before, we knew Vector Sigma, the Matrix, etc. All this played a role in the creation and origins of our beloved Transformers characters. Then came Michael Bay's movies. And although the first Transformers movie was not the first appearance of the AllSpark, the one that was featured in it was an amalgam of the concepts from G1, even energon had something to do with it. While it was a bit apart from the G1 origins, it kept much of the source material, and I think the movie origin is far more solid than in G1. I must say, that although i like both origins, I much, much prefer the origin of the Transformers told in Bay's movies. Its far better developed, mysterious, makes them more like an alien race, truly alive, with a true culture, and the product of the action of some divine power, if you want to call it that. In G1, they seem more like dolls that for some excuse, not really a reason, wanted to turn their creators into roadkill. They dont seem to be truly alive if they were just machines without sentience before. They seem more like something that evolved just by some random events arther than being a product of life itself. I like very much the ancient, mystical aspect in the AllSpark. Primus and all that stuff from the comics or the like, doesnt do it for me either. Too bad i must say, that in ROTF the AllSpark got pretty much cast aside. I could bring in a lot more arguments, but I think these are enough to make my point. What do you guys think?
