    After receiving multiple requests to start a new poll/tournament, I have decided it is time to figure which series TFW loves the most :)  The seeding was determined by original air date of the first episode of each series, pitting the oldest series against the newest and then working inward.

    Only English-language series have been included in the poll, as the bulk of users on these boards are most familiar with those series. Each poll will last one day, then we proceed to the next pairing.

    Not gonna be a fair fight, most of the big leaguers are in the top rung, including G1, Animated and Beast Wars. Even Cybertron is the best of the Unicron Trilogy.

    I voted Animated.

    Shouldn't this be in the TF General Discussion instead of the TF Toy Discussion?

    Anyways, both G1 and Animated are good series in my book, but G1 always hold a special place in my heart.

    Should have done the bracket so that Animated, G1, and Beast Wars ended up meeting in a later round. This is like the finale in round one. I have a feeling whoever wins this one, will win the overall. You have the two most popular in round 1.

    I'm voting G1. As much as I loved Animated, a lot of that love was because of the G1 homages in the show. Without G1, Animated would not be as popular.

    Voted Animated. G1 was good for its time but Animated was a tad better.

    Tough poll - taking the series out of the era that they aired makes it a difficult comparison. I loved the G1 series as a kid, but I can barely watch it today - silly dialog, overly simplistic and stupid plots, horrendous animation - watch the worst episode of each series today and Animated is still better.

    I know G1 is the root of everything else and without it there would be nothing today, but it was a glorified commercial that even the creators didn't care about. Animated had more wit, better plots, better animation, and why not - it was 25 years in the making.

    G1 is good, but Animated carries the story from episode to episode. Animated For the win!

    This one was actually somewhat hard for me, because as simplistic as G1 was, it is still one of the greatest things to watch when you're sick because it's bright, fun entertainment that requires little brainpower.

    Still, Animated got my vote.

    I loved Animated, best series since Beast Wars for me. But Generation One gets my vote here.

    I don't know if we're basing this on the show, toys, or the whole package. This should probably be moved to TF General Discussion if it's the latter.

    I voted for Animated, since I was never around for G1 nor do I have any G1 toys. I appreciate it for having started everything, and love Classics/Universe G1 figures and designs overall.

    But Animated, I loved almost every aspect of it: toys, storyline, characterization, etc.

    lol, it was hard for me since i'm an 80's child but Animated it is. G1 never had a character as awesome as Blitzwing.

    My apologies for placing this in the wrong forum, I had two windows open and was viewing the toy forum in one. I intended to put this in Transformers General Discussion in the other window, then got my wires crossed. Can a mod move this for me?

    Great Tournament! I don't think people should complain too much about how he set up; there really isn't a great way to try and seed these things.

    I voted for Animated. I grew up watching re runs of G1, but TFA completely blew me away.
