    Would it had helped the Bay movies?

    Part of the reason the 86 movie is so well enjoyed is because of the G1 series surronding it. This went into more depth of each character than the movie itself did. Could the 86 movie stand alone without the G1 series?

    I think the whole point of the 86 movie was to sell toys. Also, there would not be an 86 movie without the series (be it the show, comic, or toyline).

    Plus, the Bay movies don't really need and help... well aside from editing.

    One of the other complaints was that no one knew the back story of the Bay Transformer characters. The Bay Transformers's backstory could had been built up in a cartoon series that took place between the movies instead of having another series devoted to a different storyline.

    Seeing as the Bay movies have been wildly popular, its entirely possible that Prime and Animated would have been even better received if they tied directly into the movies.

    Animated NO. TakaraTomy's trying to make Bulkhead...Ironhide which was a huge mistake.


    Prime though i could see work in the Bayverse....You could pretend that Jack Darby is Sam Witwicky.
