This has always bugged me and maybe there is some more explanation out there. Is there some kind of social spin/politics behind the original G1 Transformers. I'm talking about first wave. The toys came before the story so characters had to be chosen from some idea or grouping. I just find it ironic that the good guys for the most part are service vehicles; police cars, ambulance, fire truck, tow truck, and led by a red while and blue semi-truck. The bad guys are mostly military vehicles, led by a a character that turns into a gun. I don't want to go as far as say that there are some socialist undertones, but it seems like this was done on purpose. I know Denny O'Neil had some things to do with the original story and he himself has some strong political views. Maybe some of you more into the history can give a better answer as to why the common worker is championed. Or maybe I'm just reading WAY too much into Transformers.
