I was just watching Power of the Primes and I was thinking how I just couldn't get into it. Not because of the acting, animation pacing etc, but because of the basic building blocks of it. The same way I struggle to get into the comics. Most of what I experienced transformers media wise growing up was the G1 cartoons and the Ladybird book and tape stories. I didn't read much of the comic unlike most in the UK. But anyway my main point is this, the G1 cartoon was very much a sci-fi show, there was no magic and they tried to explain most things scientifically. Gods never came into it. And what mattered mostly was what was in the present. Many animated versions since have remained vague about origins and stick to a sci-fi mold, like RID2001 & animated, but things started slipping in with the ancient artifacts, which really just seemed like cool weapons, in prime. And now with the prime wars trilogy and the movies it'staken on all the fantasy stuff that used to be restricted to the comics it's all full of gods, magic, ancient artifacts, super powers, knights and dragons. It's like the d&d fanatics have took over the franchise. I think the thirteen primes idea is stupid. Just had to put this out as I just worry about the franchise drifting further from what I enjoyed in the first place. Also too much love and stuff. I know my opinion is not a popular one but what do you think?
