The original 98 episodes plus the original movie were the best. All the stupid cartoons that came after, BeastWars, Beast Machines, Armada, Aminated, just to name a few, all FU*KING SUCK!!! They changed too much and the amination also sucked, there too many sceen chages, when you saw the screen transformation, the original had the Autobot or Decepticon symbloy change, but then they got carried away with it and it was happening every min. If you watched the older cartoon not including G1 then you know what I'm talking about. It all ended with The Rebirth 1,2 & 3 It's a shame the Headmasters were not widely aviable in english, I've only seen small bits on YouTube. The worst of all has to to be BeastWars. BeastWars is what made me walk away from Transformers as a kid. Also Where the hell did the little girl come form in the new cartoon, some of the storys a similar to the original, but where did the girl come from, what happened to spike, isn't it a re-telling of the original story?
