    Somewhere out there, Kickback will probably laugh his ass off when he sees this. Might as well say it and get it off my chest. You ready? I hope you are, so here it goes:

    I LIKE ANIMATED.

    Let that soak in for a few minutes, to let you know that even the greatest of haters like me would soon see the light. So, why am I posting a thread to admit that I like Animated now? Well, the following should explain everything...

    It all started yesterday when I picked up Cybertron Mode Optimus Prime from Wal-Mart. At first, I thought he, along with Cybertron Mode Megatron, Leader Megatron, and Grimlock would be my only purchases for Animated. Well, after playing with Prime for a good ten minutes, I started to realize that he was actually more fun to play with, even more fun than my Beast Wars toys. In fact, he'd even fit in fine with my Classics toys; just call him Classics Orion Pax or Classics Optronix or whatever and it'd actually work. I then thought that maybe the Animated toys weren't all that bad. But I'll be damned if the toys can't look amazingly like their show counterparts. Even the designs are starting to grow on me. I then decided to watch some of the Animated episodes I downloaded, and of course, even the show wasn't that bad. In fact, the characterization, the writing, the obvious homages to past Transformers shows, everything just blew my mind. This is good stuff! In fact, I'm starting to think this may even be as good as Beast Wars, if not better. So now every Saturday morning, I can finally have a cartoon to watch as I eat breakfast cereal. It's like watching Beast Wars...only better. Perhaps I should apologize for underestimating this series. Now I know why the fandom loves this show: It's G1 reborn! Hasbro, you've finally suckered me in. Consider me a fan of Animated. :D 

    P.S.-Yes, this is really happening. Check out the window, it's the flippin' apocalypse. :p 

    (Mods, if this is considered spamming, please lock this thread. I just had to say this)

    Wow.

    Good job! Uh, welcome aboard?

    I don't think this will be considered spam, as it can not only serve to prove your point, but also any others who have opened their minds can come and share their stories.

    hahah, welcome to the den.

    the ability to change ones mind given 'evidence' is usually a good thing. When animated first appeared to the world the one thing that unsettled me from the anihaters was the comment 'its just not what im used to'.

    thats the type of thing that holds people back.

    i'll admit i prefer 2D fighting video games over 3D but thats different :)

    I wasn't crazy about animated at first either. I was willing to give it a try but initial looks of it didn't seem like something I would like that much. I caught parts of a couple episodes and I wasn't wow'd.

    But when I started seeing more pictures of the toys I was hooked. The toys really sold me on this series and thus far the ones I have in hand have lived up to my expectations.

    I have since gone back and watched all the episodes and they really are good now that I've seen them all in order and am just generally more interested in them. All said, I really like the line.

    See, this is why it helps not to be judgmental when something new comes out.

    I was checking your post for any hint of sarcasm but found none. Welcome ot the Animated fan club. I have missed the first 5 or so episodes but now each Sat at 10:30 I'd bring my 8 month old son to the TV room to watch it with me or catch it on Youtube. It's the best TF show since BW and I dare say it's even better on some levels. I am still waiting to get my first toys from HTS but I can already tell they are all gonna be superb and I can't wait to get them.

    I feel the same way. I wasn't liking Animated when we were seeing still photos of the toys and screen shots of the show,however in motion the show is really fun to watch! It hooked me into buying the toys because I actually wanted the toys of the characters because they are done really well. I love the show, it have the same feeling watching it as I did when I watched G1 as a kid. Very nice.
