    This thread is so ridiculously simple that it will be unbelievably awesome.

    AUTOBOTS?

    ...or...

    DECEPTICONS?

    ...and why?

    I side with the Autobots. Their unfathomable devotion to protecting friends, innocents and their compatriots is admirable. In nearly every iteration of Transformers, the Autobots remain positive and upbeat, no matter how dire the circumstances. I really like that. It seems like the Autobots, by and large, are proud - and justifiably so - of calling themselves Autobots (and defending what that term means to them.) They've consciously decided to make the best of themselves, no matter the situation. I try to embrace as much of that mantra as I can. I choose the Autobots.

    Freedom is the right of all sentient beings... unless they sign up with Megatron's gang of thugs!

    (Or, in my case, Galvatron's, since If I were an Autobot I'd be Rodimus Prime. And I wouldn't turn out like in the cartoon - I hope!)

    I'd side with the Autobots because they are more honorable. Bots care about other beings, not just themselves. Anyone who allies themselves with Decepticons are just disposed of once the Cons get what they want from them.

    I choose Autobots because I like cars that turn into robots and the Autobots have more of those.

    I've always been a con at heart, since day one. I just loved the look of the characters, the techspec bios (much more so than the cartoon interpretations) and their alt modes. I can never have enough miltary vehicles.

    I'm autobot through and through. I'm such a good guy I even have trouble doing bad things in video games. I like that they adhere to a strict code of honour and morality, but that they still all have their flaws to overcome and their lessons to learn. It's about getting better all the time for them, and that's something I try to do every day.

    My wife's a decepticon though. :D

    Definitely the Autobots; something about my pesky sense of fairness.

    I with the autobots, because they do right in the end. however, there's definitely something to be said about the decepticon code that only the strong survive, and the weak should become stronger or perish by the wayside.

    I would be a autobot, but i would always be getting in trouble cause I would probably be violent and battle hungry like the decepticons

    Decepticon. They aren't held back by emotion or sentiment. Megatron was willing to nuke Cybertron for chrissakes. None of that "preserve the homeworld" crap. And then the sheer destructive force of their military dispsitions. Don't forget their complete disregard for the rights of all sentient beings. They aren't afraid to chase what they want, no matter the consequences. And they NEVER hold back in combat. I just love those self-serving bastards.

    Decepticons, because as robotic beings they aren't held back by moral codes like homo sapients do. They are constantly evolving, improving, bettering themselves with technology, so it makes sense to have a society where the strongest survive and the weakest fall.


    Besides they have the baddest looking TFs like Soundwave, Shockwave, Trypticons, Galvatron, Devastator, Predaking, etc. Autobots have Dinobots and Roadbuster and not much else. I side with the coolest looking 'Formers always.
