So as we all know, the Transformers has been public knowledge for Earthlings in G1, Energon and Animated, and a secret organization acting in the shadows with only a minority know their existence in Armada, Cybertron, Prime, and somewhat in-between in RID and Rescue Bots. What do guys prefer? Personally I like them better acknowledged by the Earthlings. It gives us more interactions and more human characters instead of just the main ones. And to be frank, I think the whole working undercover seems a bit tiring with the hiding and retreating and lying and removing evidence. I know they are called "Robots in Disguise", but sticking with the same characters and working in the shadows isn't as interesting as fighting in the open and seeing the panic of people when chaos starts.
