    It's the first day of the new year, and to kick it off right, I thought I'd start a thread about what we like about Transformers. Post any old random thing or character from any corner of the franchise that you like and tell us a little bit why.

    One thing I really like about Transformers is that scene in the original G1 pilot movie, More Than Meets the Eye part 2, when the explosion at the end of the episode sends Prime rolling (in truck mode) down the mountain with an ominous "to be continued..." on the screen. I was 6 years old when I first saw it and the scene was epic at the time. I completely forgot about Roller, Spike and Bumblebee, who were all still inside the mine and closer to the explosion. Prime rolling down the mountain was far more dramatic as a cliffhanger.

    the scene where hot rod catches daniel in the '86 movie after he trashes his hoverboard on a rock. the transformation was so fluid and the entire scene was beautiful. this was the first thing that popped into my head.

    The awesome western scene at the end of Coming of the Fuzors, Part 1.

    The epic multiversal nature of the TF mythos. Primus, Unicron, multiversal singularities, the Thirteen, universal clusters, Sideways, Alternity, Maccadam's, etc.

    Beast Wars The Agenda 3-parter came to my mind right away. Like a song that starts out low and ominous and just builds and builds toward this deafening crescendo, those episodes are a ride I love to take over and over. I was just :jawdropper:  throughout.

    Dangit, I don't have time to rewatch them right now...

    I've always felt bad for Skyfire in G1. After being frozen on Earth for millions of years, he wakes up to being forced to join the Cons. Then after that he just dies.

    I like the Transformers Origin from FFoD, about the rebelling against the Quints, and the Consumer Goods Robots developing Transforming as a way to surprise attack the Military Robots.

    That origin rules.

    Bruticus holding Megatron

    Starscream "Who is the leader of the Decepticons?"
    Megatron "You are"
    Starscream "I can't hear you"
    Megatron "YOU ARE!"

    Then Menasor had to come along and ruin it. Sigh.

    This. Starscream's Brigade was the episode where I thought I was finally going to see Starscream come out on top....

    ...and I was foiled again. Still one of my favorite episodes though.

    B.O.T., just for the sheer amount of effort and thought that went into that episode.

    The last page of Issue 4 of the Marvel Mini-series when Shockwave snatches victory away from the Autobots. Ending a supposed 4-issue series in a cliff-hanger. Then the long wait for issue 5.
