It's obvious that the people who grew up during G1 are going to be very insanely critical about this, a few of them refusing to accept new things. But some of us here either did not grow up with G1 or jumped on the Transformers bandwagon on Beast Wars or RiD or the Unicron Trilogy. So was it much easier to enjoy the movie because you weren't scanning for even the minor deviation from G1. If you've seen G1, but didn't grow up with it, does that change your opinion? I grew up in the Beast era so it was easier for me to just sit back and enjoy the movie. I've seen the '86 movie and am halfway through the G1 cartoon.
