so i always thought, as most of us do, that g1 is by far the best. but i always thought it was because i was a kid and everything ruled. rose colored glasses and all that. but there is something about that original that really worked. i just dont understand why cant we have a series more like the original. why do we always have to have gimmicky pokemon stuff like minicons, cyber keys, etc now? cant "robot to car" be gimmicky enough? why cant we have a series with similar characters and situations as teh original. take a look at the classics line and use designs like those. or maybe a series about the autobots still on a decepticon controlled cybertron during the war. kind of a starwars rebellion thing. and i know g1 had some spotty animation but did anyone see armada, GOOD GOD! i really liked the beastwars full on 3d, why cant we get back to that. recently my nephew, who is 4, started getting into the playschool transformers and i gave him some of my old, broken beast and g2 tf to play with. he loves tf and wanted to watch some of the shows. i showed him cybertron one day, he wasnt into it. he sorta likes beastwars, but mainly because he likes animals. but he LOVES g1, he doesnt own a single figure and the show is over 20 years old and it locks him in completly. there is definitely something to be said about the "magic" of the original. also screw you micheal bay, you and your megatron design. well now i feel better... sorta.
