    Why is it that a lot of Transformer series these days have the Autobots and Cons hiding from Humans? Armada, Cybertron, the live action films and Prime do this. I am just wondering what is everyone's opinion of this.

    Because what happened in the Movies would happen to the bots.

    That too.

    It's because they're "robots in disguise". It's not my personal preference to have the human race unaware of the Transformers presence. I would prefer it to be public knowledge that there are waring alien robots living among us. They could still be robots in disguise. Cause the car driving around next to you or the plane flying above you could be a Transformers and you wouldn't know it. One of the biggest reasons that I didn't like the live Transformers movies is because the human race was unaware that there was waring alien robots living among them. In the case of the Transformers: Prime cartoon, I'm ok with the human race being unaware of the Transformers existance. Because the cartoon is just simply that good. The movie on the other hand wasn't able to make that claim.

    Yeah, I understand the whole 'Robots in Disguise' part. G1 had the TF's roaming around in robot form in most of the episodes.

    I presume, Lord Megatron doesn't want all humans around the world to try to eliminate him.
    It would cause more harm, than good for the course. Because of that Decepticons are not messing around that much.

    G1 wasn't exactly the king of making sense.

    The TF films did this. Everyone knew them by DOTM but they'd cause to much of a commotion in public so they had that secret NEST base. Also, having the Bots ally with every military in the world (US in the films) and sharing information, tactics, and strategies makes it hard for Cons to have a fighting chance.

    That and Optimus doesn't want human casualties taking place. The Cons, if found out, would have no reason to hide and could directly threaten cities.

    In one of the later episodes the transformers existance was revealed to the public. Until then, and just like every show since, they have been in hiding.

    Because they don't want people having heart attacks because giant killer robots are in their town.

    I prefer it. That would mean less chances for humans to play a part in the series

    Maybe at after "Nemesis Prime" or "Grill" the Transformers existance will be revealed to the public.

    Megatron doesnt want humans getting in the way. Decepticons might be powerful but with the government actively looking for him his ability to mine energon and find artifacts is going to rapidly decrease. The military would also be a powerful ally to the autobots.

    Prime doesnt want humans involved because he sees the war coming to earth as partly his fault and humans fighting mean human casualties. He doesnt want an innocent race to pay the price for the cybertronian war.

    I do prefer it that way, humans just upset the balance too much and it would put the decepticons on the defensive all the time and it doesnt suit them.

    I think it is more realistic. People would freakout if they new there are aliens living among them that hide as anything. And this thread has finally provided an explanation for why Megatron cares. It would probably just make things harder.

    Every other episode of G1 the Autobots were in robot form running through the streets, letting more people find out about them, despite the fact that in episode 2, ALL world governments agreed to help the Autobots defeat the Decepticons...so they were never in hiding
