    I think they're cool. They shouldn't be overused of course, but still cool.

    They're fine for what they need to do.

    I don't hate them enough to say they're the spawn of Unicron but I don't really like them. I'd rather have fully animated flash backs.

    Sure I do though I do like it more if they also show animated flash backs. :)

    This.

    I think it's a cool contrast compared to the majority of the show's animation. Give a sort of "mythical" feel to them. Aged, so to speak. Like having a current live-action show (just take CSI, for example) and having it show flashbacks in the form of 17th century paintings. I like it. :D 

    Would I have loved to have seen some of those flashbacks in full-moving CG animation? Sure. But for the 23 seconds in each of the like, 6 episodes that have had flashbacks, these 'painted', static images are fine. Let's give the animators a break.

    If they could do Predatory-style flashbacks, that would be great

    ^Wow, I had completely forgotten about the Predatory flashbacks. Yeah, having a few more of those would be good too. :D

    I think they make sense. Why waste a quarter of your CGI budget making Cybertron models that people are only going to see for 5-10 minutes across the first 1.5 seasons?

    I like them. They add that extra element that shows they really care about this show. It adds depth.

    As long as we can get a flashback episode with Predatory styled flashbacks for Bumblebee at Tyger Pax, then we're cool.

    If we don't, then they can go suck a butt.

    Honestly I'd like a mix between it being painted and animated.

    I know they exist only because of the limitation of the media form so I'm fine with them. In the case of the thirteen's story and Optimus' time as Orion they ended up fitting really well since they gave that graphic novel/legend feeling to the whole story.

    They're fine, but why do only Optimus, Megatron and Soundwave get Cybertronian modes in these painted flashbacks? Optimus and Megatron I get, since they were different characters back then (decent, idealistic Megatronus, young Orion), but why does Soundwave get a Cybertronian mode while Ratchet, Bumblebee, and Starscream don't? It's not like the Predatory flashbacks, where money would have to go into making a different model for their previous form.

    Well to be fair, Megatron hasn't changed too much since Cybertron in terms of design.

    I love how the Spawn of Unicron was an option.

    I like them but I wish we'd get atleast one or more animated flashback. Or better yet, an entire episode taking place in the past on Cybertron.
