    Would you be an Autobot or a Decepticon? I think a lot of you who automatically say "Autobot" might be surprised if confronted with the reality of that choice.

    Let's say both Megatron and Optimus Prime are out vying for your alliegence. Both give speeches, make promises, state their ideals...

    Megatron promises you power, expansion of the Cybertronian race to other planets, vast unknown resources to be harvested from subject-worlds. You could bring peace to the galaxy through iron-fisted enforcement of the rule of law. You could stop wars between skirmishing races, nations, whole planets across the universe by putting them all under one banner - the decepticon cause. Sound familiar? Doesn't sound so bad, does it?

    Optimus Prime comes and tells you that Megatron's ideas are merely disguised terms for empire, subjugation, genocide, and mass-scale robbery of planetary wealth. He tells you that as Cybertronians you have a duty to protect sentient life and to reject Megatron's expansionist meddling for what it is - an empire of cruel domination and exploitation. Even at the expense of your own prosperity, you must help stop the Decepticons from destroying innocent worlds.

    You have heard how the Decepticons "deal" with dissent on Cybertron and a part of you believes Megatron may not be completely on the level, but who's to say that isn't all just Autobot propoganda? Optimus Prime is an inspiring figure, but you have your planet, your race, your friends - to consider in the equation.

    I like to think I'd still choose to side with Optimus, but really I don't think any of us can be sure since we'll never have to make that decision. Am I wrong here?

    Personally I would have to discreetly study both sides to see what they stand for because there are no good of two evils but there is the lesser.

    but Really If the only way to be free is to destroy my own homeworld and the artifact keeping it alive. I'd rather set out on my own and start again on a new world.

    lol, I would be an Autobot of course. I prefer decepticons in fiction but real life, Optimus would be my leader no question.

    I'd be the first Autobot priest for the Church of Primus.

    OR a decepticon with the aim to make the decepticon cause more...sanitary.

    I mean really there is more to Transformers than Baysplosions and kicking ass.

    I would be Punch/Counterpunch and be a double-spy. Then I can study and decide which side I like better.

    Decepticon. If my species was in trouble and it took stomping a few lesser races into place to save the species then watch out lesser species. Plus the universe needs a bit of order so better our idea of order instead of letting others enforce that order.

    I'm afraid I'm a bit sentimental and very much the idealist, and Optimus seems closer to those viewpoints than not. And so I figure it doesn't matter if things are bleak and horrible and dying--I still wouldn't be willing to step on others for the sake of survival.

    I allow myself to get convinced into things.

    But then again, I wouldnt want to rape and pillage.

    If I sided with the Cons, I would be used and killed for being naive.

    Or I would get killed trying to stop a Con from doing some really bad thing.....


    Crazy........
    Why is Hasbro stuff so closely related to Hitler ?

    I would most likely go with the Autobots, simply because I share their viewpoints on a lot of things.

    Anyway, Decepticon.

    I typically prefer the Decepticons in fiction, but in real life I'd be a virtuous Autobot warrior!
