    Now, I get that Transformers was intended for selling toys to kids & whatnot, but I also think that some of the storylines carried a much deeper meaning, some of which that're more applicable than ever, what with all those battles over oil & Decepticons of mass destruction.

    Heck, the 1st thing I thought of when I read about Osama Bin Laden's spark termination was the episode where they threw Tripticon into the ocean & rejoiced at his demise, only to find out that he'd washed up on Dinobot Island & made his way into yet another symbolic oil related plotline.

    ...go!

    I do not see this thread going well. If it lasts that long, that is.

    Well, I'd "like" to think that we're mature enough to handle a discussion regarding real life comparisons to an 80's tv show...

    Let's just drop the Bin Laden talk. None of those threads ended well.
