    Is it True that a lot of the younger kids are not into G1 (toys/cartoons) but more into the movie stuff? I'm talking about the younger "TRUE" hardcore Transformers fans that know ALL about G1 and seen ALL the G1 cartoon series. Do they prefer movie stuff over G1 stuff????

    Of course

    Ask a kid what G1 is and he/she will not know

    G1 was 80's not 2009

    Kids are always more into what is new when they're young, more than they're into stuff that came before they were born. Weren't you? It doesn't mean they will or won't like the old just as much eventually, they're just usually initially exposed to what's around currently.

    The exceptions are if a parent is a fan and makes a point of exposing their kid to the old as well as the new.

    No matter how many question marks you use, it will still be true.

    We're no exception to the rule. The majority of us G1-ers usually aren't hunting for pre-TFs (Diaclone, Microman, etc) with as much gusto as we do with what's familiar to us, if we even hunt for those at all.

    Not at all, haven't you seen the hordes of kids in their leg warmers, listening to Rick Astley on their Walkmans. I can hardly walk down the street without tripping over some 8 year old breakdancing or playing with G1.

    It's usually about what's new when you're a kid. This is not surprising to me at all.

    TFTM and Animated are probably what most 5-9 year olds are into TF-wise, that is, if they're not only into playing video games.

    Ya know, a lot of us OLD TF fans arent into G1 as much as some of the newer stuff either.

    G1 was cool, but...well. I remember my first GF fondly too, but I wouldnt date her again, either.

    I am a younger fan (14 years old), but I still like G1. Lots of younger kids probably aren't fans, but buy the toys because they see them on TV.
