    This left such a hole when it ended. While I enjoyed G2, it wasn't really this group. Glad they're coming back! Thank you, Simon, Andy, and Stephen!!!!!!

    I completely agree with the poster earlier- Perlin, Delbo and particularly Springer were all great artists dealing with a book that none of them were particularly suited for. Transformers is/was a hard book to draw, you guys! This was not a book Marvel was going to devote a ton of time/attention to... they lined up professional, workman-like artists to churn out a solid book every month.

    Probably because a cartoon is a massive, expensive undertaking that could only pay for itself by being a dominant force in Transformers merchandising for a year or more. It's totally pie-in-the-sky. But IF it COULD happen, it WOULD require so much effort and money, that it would bleed from other sectors of the franchise and alienate other fans.

    Regen1 doesn't replace anything and it's an eminently manageable project. Comics are just cheaper to produce and don't have to satisfy as many profit-crazed executives.

    I understand what you are saying but it is really apples and oranges for this reason.

    Prime and Megatron battled first in #2 where they threw junk at each other, but it ended with Megatron escaping with Sparkplug.

    They battled again in #4, with the Decepticons falling to the poison fuel, but Shockwave turned the tide, and Prime didn't actually defeat Megatron.

    They didn't really battle again until #24, when Optimus Prime sacrificed himself in the video game...

    After that... nothing.

    Ratchet on the other hand...

    Defeats Megatron in issue #8 by knocking him off a cliff (though the Dinobots softened him up).

    Defeats Megatron in issue #59 by teleporting the bomb to his location and they were fused together in between dimensions.

    Defeats Megatron again (along with Starscream, Shockwave, and Galvatron) in #78 by crashing the Ark into the Earth.

    I'll be disappointed if the rivalry isn't continued...

    Don't forget, Ratchet actually conned, bluffed and talked his way out of being atomized by Megatron before he sent him off that cliff as well, showing some real nerve and quick-thinking.

    What I would love to see is an expansion on that Megatron/Galvatron teaming up that was proposed just before Ratchet sent them to their fate.

    While you are right and I already knew it to be a somewhat uneven comparison when I made that post, it was more of the fact that any suggestion to revist or continue anything to do with the old G1 shows, films or comics seems to attract an immediate swell of disregard, usually with comments of 'G1 is dead' or 'It's too cheesy to appeal to a modern audience' or baseless claims that 'It just won't work'. I'm sure if someone here had suggested a G1 Marvel comic story continuation a couple of years ago it would've been instantly shot down as a dumb idea. 'That title finished years ago. It's dead. No-one would buy it now'.
    Poor old G1 more and more just seems to instantly get regarded these days as some crappy dead thing that should be forgotten.
