OK, so I am curious: aside from the fact that cartoons and comics are limited to what the authors and writers think, why was a total Autobot victory never achieved? Just going with G1 for a moment, if you took Metroplex, Fort Max and Omega Supreme into battle wouldn't that be enough to take out all of the Decepticon heavy hitters and combiners? Even if it wasn't, add in Autobot combiners, the wreckers and the Dinobots, Bring in Prime and his top line Autobots, Ultra Magnus... wouldn't that be enough? Just in terms of sheer firepower they should be able to crush the Decepticons in one stroke. Especially if Prime went on one of his "I must stop Megatron" attacks. What do you guys think?
