    Since there is a thread for the worst, there must be a thread for best. So what are some of your favorite aspects of this franchise?

    Personally, I'm loving the mythology and concepts being developed. I like Cybertroinians being life forms, not robots. I like them having a religion. I do wish their beliefs weren't 100% factual, akin to humanities own religions, but I love that they have one.

    I also love how there are so many characters that everyone has their own favorite. Heck you can even make your own characters and be literal repaints of others and it still fits the continuity.

    You're up.

    Transformers making weapons come out of their forearms, like knives and saws. Someone needs to make a mace for WFC Megatron.

    Giant alien transforming robots beating the everloving shit out of each other.

    Awesome toys (most of the time).

    Strong voice work.

    Whenever fan-art gets really creative.

    The G1 mythos - especially the US and UK Marvel comics, aspects of the G1 animated movie and the toys.

    My all-time fave toys are those from the season 1 and 2. We had the die cast vehicles, boys that look blocky, combiners, robot dinosaurs and play sets that could transform. Things starts started going downhill during the Pretenders era...

    The best thing about Transformers is that it is still popular after all these years. It ain't going away soon.
