    Which series is the best of the trilogy?

    I have to go with Armada. Though RID got me into Transformers, Armada was the first series I watched every week. I love many of the characters. Starscream, Wheeljack and Sideways are a few of my all-time favorite characters. I realize the plot may not have been great, but I enjoyed it.

    Armada. Though I've never seen Cybertron and have little intention to.

    Definitely not Energon. Can't decide between the other two because I haven't even started watching Cybertron yet; just a few episodes while it was still on YTV years ago. But I liked the middleish-end part of Armada.

    Armada. Terrible plot, but it had good characters.

    armada, the first half of the show wasn't very good, but the last half, expecially the unicron battles, is some of the best transformers fiction ever including the greatest final battle between optimus and megatron

    I want to say "Definitely not Energon" like one person already has and a thousand others are thinking. But I'm in the middle of watching the Super Link version of the series right now, and it is freaking great so far.

    I'm only 23 episodes in, though, so maybe it completely tanks after this. I stopped watching Energon midway through the series when it aired here, but what I remember of it, it was nowhere near as good as the version I'm watching now.

    Armada is a safe choice for me, because I put up with the early weak episodes, and it got better and better towards the end. So when it finished, it left me with kind of a good feeling about the series overall. But I don't think anything in Armada was as good as the best parts I've seen of Super Link so far. Although, yeah, Armada had some great characters and concepts. Sideways being high up on the list.

    Cybertron, I've only seen parts of, so I can't really judge it, storywise. But I don't like the style of CG as much.

    Armada is a great show, provided you can get through the early episodes (while I personally like them, I can see how others wouldn't). It really begins to pick up when Wheeljack, Sideways, and Thrust show up, and then really hits it's stride once they leave earth.

    It's just those early episodes that a lot of people have a hard time getting past.

    Armada, trashy as it is at times, is the best one out of the Unicron trilogy. Cybertron is mediocre and Energon is a hellspawn that should have been aborted.

    Cybertron gets the gold star for making me shed a tear for a character I didn't even think about caring for.

    TFC is a real tear jerker ya know.

    Nah, you've got about three more before that happens. The first half of Energon/Super Link is watchably decent.

    I'm kinda pleased to see Armada getting as much credit as it is, though I still voted for Cybertron. Competent dub trumps all.

    I voted Armada ONLY because I loved the comics and the video game. I'd on ly seen a few episodes of the cartoons of A/E/C, but, it was enough for me to decide the comics were much better.
