I dislike any character who didn't appear on season one of the G1 cartoon series. I have a few favorites outside of that year like Tracks, Smokescreen or the Coneheads, but for the most part I believe new characters outside of those early years are not as good as the original cast. Back when I was a kid I loved the '86 movie and all the character deaths. I even went so far as to put away the dead season 1&2 characters and never play with them again. The season 3&4 cast were cool and the old characters, especially the season 1 cast, were old and corny. I don't like Autobot jets and Decepticon cars because they're not true to the way the factions were first set up in the beginning. With the exception of Skyfire, the Autobots were all cars and the Decepticons became jets or deceptive things like cassette tapes. But back then I loved the Aerialbots and any new Transformer Hasbro came up with regardless of alt mode. I hated the marvel comic because it was slow to introduce new characters then... looking back now, I believe the glut of new characters killed G1. I had over a hundred G1 figures back then, but only Laserbeak and Rumble now. I prefer classics these days... G1 figures like Ironhide or Starscream are an embarrassment to me. How about you? Have your tastes changed? Or are you still the same?
