    I noticed every single Transformers fan praising the G1 series. But, me, to be honest, I don't really like G1. Don't hate me, that's just my opinion. I don't HATE it, but I just don't really like it that much.

    It's just not my cup of tea.

    First off, I don't really like the crappy animation. It just doesn't look that good. I understand it's the 80's, but I was the animation was more fluid. Looney Tunes cartoons from the 80's had fluid animation, so why Can't Transformers?

    Next, is the plotholes. Here are some examples

    In the finale of the ''more than meets the eye'' the Autobots was preparing to return to Cybertron taking Spike and Sparklug with them. However the next episode depicted them still stuck on Earth.

    Also, the Decepticons could fly in robot mode. Why can't the Autobots?


    However, there are good points, still. The personalities of the Transformers for one.


    So, overall, I don't really like G1 Transformers. I don't HATE it, but I don't LIKE it. If you love, that's fine and I'm happy for you. But I'M not into it.

    And where the hell have you been if you've seen everyone praising G1?

    The G1 franchise exists as far more than the sunbow cartoon. I loathe that accursed show, but I adore the comics, new and old. (mostly new. I <3 IDW's MTMTE) I also like the so-basic-they're-novel toys.

    Cartoon? Not that good. There are some other good pieces of media though.

    Anybody who hates someone just because they don't like G1 is a disappointing human being. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. While G1 is my favorite, I have enough control of my ego that I can try to walk a mile in your shoes to understand why you wouldn't like it; horrible articulation on the toys and a serious lack of attention to detail and continuity on the TV show. Bravo for speaking up and letting your voice be heard, even though it's not going to be a popular one. I applaud that. While you may not do so well on these boards with that kind of attitude, in "real life," your greatness will silence them all. :thumbs2:

    Please don't ask people to not voice their opinions just because they're not going to be popular ones.

    Yes, heaven forbid I don't want a flamewar to erupt. Because that's all that can come from this.

    And here's another truth: most flamewars aren't even flamewars. So many people are so sensitive and easily offended that it's degraded to the point where simply *disagreeing* with some in a mature manner with no vulgarity or name calling now gets interpreted as "flaming." I have some unique insight to those people who think everything is a "fight." In real life, when they have a disagreement with someone, their heart starts to beat very quickly. This causes them to panic, and they go into defensive mode. Once in defensive mode, anything that's said is interpreted as an insult. I once witnessed a person go into defensive mode and I said "I feel like eating a ham sandwich" and they angrily said, "What does that mean? You calling me a pig?" No lie. This is how the offended, defensive human mind skews things. :rolleyes:

    "Please Don't Flame me"

    Golden Rule about asking that on the internet; DON'T

    If people don't like your opinions, They'll let you know how little they give a fuck about it.
    Like me.

    I'm gonna assume you haven't read the comics if you think G1 sucks.

    Go on Amazon and order
    The Transformers Classics Volume 1.
    Then order Volume 2
    Then 3
    Then Preorder Volume 4 Because that collection ain't out yet.

    franchise is in no way synonymous with cartoon. there is a lot more to G1 than that shitty show sunbow pumped out.

    go read a few comics. try not to be enticed by one of all of the G1 comic series out there, i dare you. i double dare you.

    Obviously, the OP is not an 80s kid where at the time is regarded as the golden years of toys and animation.

    But if you're comparing just animation.... uhhhh NO dude 80s was the shiets as it was hand drawn. All this crap today looks horrid and visually unappealing. Yeah you know what I'm talking about that crap like TFA, BW, TFP.. The crap beyond the BW....

    As for the toys.... yeah I'd rather have the 80s then the current filmsy made toy and the packaging which leaves no room for nice art work and imagination!!!

    Now if I was a kid today,..... I'd most likely be drawn to the 80s stuff where it all began. The rest is just parody of the TF franchise!!!!

    Now fuck off the mighty 80s kids son!
