    Ok, lets get one thing straight: I like both Animated and Prime are awsome shows, each showing the Trasformers in completely different ways. I'm not saying one's better than the other. But since I tend to view Transformers Prime's character design as "movie meets animated" I want to know which you guys think is better.

    I love both for what they both have to offer to the franchise. Each have thier own flaws and good points.

    I like TFP, but Animated just destroys it.

    Animated, easily.

    -The characters were more fun and creative.
    -There actually felt like there was an overarching, interesting plot.
    -The factions had an interesting take. There was more moral ambiguity and Cybertron was actually ruled by the Autobots instead of being dead like it always is.
    -The almanacs made the universe and number of characters huge.
    -The toys were a million times better.

    All this, and Prime's show is nothing but wasted potential.

    Prime has better Animation.

    Animated has better writing and world building.


    I don't really dislike Prime but story trumps art for me, so Animated wins.


    -ZacWilliam, would love to see a shot of the Animated cast rendered Prime style and the Prime cast drawn Animated style, just for fun...

    Animated will always be my favorite. Prime doesn't even come close.

    Yes, yes, yes.

    Prime is so standard and boring. No ambition.

    Animated is the best Transformers universe to me. I love everything about it. There is no competition here.

    -Not to mention everyone has a backstory that gets explored.

    -Ratchet, not Prime is the central character of the overall story and it actually goes somewhere with this idea.

    -The Decepticons have a reasonable goal, they were exiled and they want to live on their own home planet.

    -The Autobots aren't really the good guys, nor are they a unified force.

    Prime. All the way.

    The only thing good we got out of Animated were the toys. The animation was terrible. Some of the worst i've seen. We didn't even see them properly transform half the time. They would just spin and it would go all blurry. To me it felt like it was a show aimed at a younger audience, like Rescue Bots.

    With Prime, it feels like the show is aimed at an older audience aswell as kids. And i don't fell so stupid watching it. The CGI is great, excellent Autobot and Decepticon cast, great voices for each(minus Bumblebee), Lots of Epic moments. The list goes on.

    Animated due to what Bountyan and Pravus Prime said.

    This. Animated had to much more happening and this episode point than Prime, and it's only now starting to pick up.

    Hmm, boring characters, a very bad "Plot", the overuse of "ONE SHALL STAND!!!1!! AND ONE SHALL FALL!!!!1!!", or a show that was fun, had a good cast of characters, a good plot, and was fun?
