    Bar none I feel the original is the best. Especially post movie it seems to be timeless. What series do you feel had the bet theme song in your opinion?

    The 1986 Movie opening theme by Lion and the post episode 28 intro ("IGNITION!") on Galaxy Force are my favourite themes in all of Transformers.

    Ending a Japanese theme song with a nonsensical english phrase has a long history, especially in the case of adaptations of american series. X-men is another prime example, and is pretty similar in approach to what was done with animated.

    YouTube - X-Men Japanese Intro

    part of me really likes the beast wars neo opening. season 3 is what i grew up listening too tho as it actually had a beat you could follow.

    headmasters is pretty legit tho, as is the japanese 2010 theme.

    also, why are the openings so much better animated than the actual cartoons, and why are the japanese openings so much better than the american ones? I guess it's just a $$ thing and how much they sink into it?

    The English Animated theme. So much energy and a great beat without being over-the-top.

    Runner-up is Beast Machine's funky techno thump-thump theme.
