Being a avid G1 fan, I remember loving the first live action Transformers Movie, but completely horrified with the toy line. The toyline was completely repulsive with my GEEWUUUN mentality, and so I passed up the toy line entirely, not even giving it a chance. I had this mindset even after RoTF debuted and the new toy line released. However, by that point, they toy line slowly started to grow on me, and I discovered that they aren't that bad. So I gave the RoTF line a chance, and I have to say I like it, although most of it has to do with getting my head out of my ass as a hard-core G1 style fan. So now I've been collecting a lot of the RoTF line, and just about all of the previous line. Although some of them are still kinda fugly. I also think the RoTF line has also done better in toy design than the first movie line. The robot modes are unique, and the alt-modes are very impressive. Bottom line, give Bayformers a chance like I eventually did, you may find out you're missing out on a lot of great toys to collect. There is so much more to transformers than Generation One.
