    Which continuity do you think is better? The Marvel US/UK comics or the G1 cartoon?
    The comics were always dark natured,had deeper characters,different personalities for some (ex.Shockwave) a few different designs, and stories that go more in depth and detailed while the cartoon had basic characters and storylines while being more child-oriented yet successful.

    Comic.

    The cartoon is an overrated piece of nostalgia with everyone playing cops and robbers rather than actually being at war with each other. The comic still holds up to today's standards for the most part.

    But of course the cartoon's going to win, because "THAT'S WHUT I GREW UP WITH AND PICKTURES DONT MOVE. LOL!!!"

    Bah!

    Haha, so to try to put yourself and your viewpoint over you gotta get that preemptive "burn" in :lol  Oh I love the internet.

    My favorite G1 continuity is Japan's, an option the poll forgot.

    Just two options? There's like FOUR different G1 continuities from 80's alone!

    There's also the UK Marvel comic continuity which supplements the US comic with extra material, and the Japanese anime continuity which supplants Rebirth with almost a hundred more episodes, further continued in story pages and stuff.

    I wasn't burning as much as bitching because I'm kinda cranky today. :/

    One almost fits seamlessly into the other. It doesn't really warrant a separate option.


    Yes, we know there are inconsistencies. Just go with it.

    "almost seamlessly"??

    Thats an overstatement.

    And Marvel themselves saw reason enough to give both different designations.

    Definitely the comics. While the cartoon had it's good episodes, it was mostly crap. On the other hand, while the comics had their crappy issues, they were mostly good.
