    Hi there.

    Firstly I would like to say a big hello and introduce myself to this site.

    I am compiling a project of sorts relating to the original Transformers animated series.

    I am looking to find things such as what are the most popular characters, episodes and quotes from the series, and thought who better to ask than you the fans.

    As an example of what questions I will be asking I have filled out my own answers below:

    Favourite Episode: 'Fire In The Sky'

    Favourite Character: Jazz

    Favourite Scene: Jazz going to a disco

    Favourite quote: 'I Like Your earth music' - Jazz

    If you can help me out with finding what Transformers fandom's thoughts are on these I would be very appreciative.

    Cheers,
    Jim79

    Hey Jim, just would like to throw out a nice big warm welcome to the boards. I do hope you enjoy your time here.

    This is gonna be a toughie, I haven't watched anything G1 (not counting the animated movie) in such a long time...

    Favourite Episode: More than Meets the Eye/Starscreams Brigade (was that what it was called?)

    Favourite Character: Starscream

    Favourite Scene: No idea, sorry

    Favourite quote: Again, not too sure on this one either

    Wish I could be of more help, but it has been a while.

    Favourite Episode: 'Prime Target' - This episode didn't take itself too seriously and was really cheesy. I liked it! Lord Chumley is one of my favourite human characters in the TF Universe. Also Prime kicked ass, what's more to like?

    Favourite Character: Optimus Prime - I always idolized him as a kid and I still do today. He may not have been the most complex character ever but we do need our heroes to look up to.

    Favourite Scene: Galvatron taking on the planet in "Webworld" - Galvatron being hilariously insane and badass at the same time.

    Favourite quote: Optimus Prime - " There's a thin line between being a hero, and being a memory" - One of the more introspective quotes from the G1 cartoon, Also I'm Prime biased if you had not realized by now.

    I was obsessed with the original series growing up, but I haven't seen them since, oh 1987, so I am a little rusty. I have just started watching them over again.

    Favorite Episode: The ones that stick out to me are the ones where a few Transformers went back to the Middle Ages and Starscream "invented" gun powder and Starscream's Ghost...I think it was actually called "Ghost in the Machine" I was so excited when he was brought back to life and then the series just ended!

    Favorite Character: Starscream, I think he probably had the most character development of all the Transformers, plus he was just so dang funny! I would say my favorite Autobots were Iron Hide and Springer.

    Favorite Scene: It has been 20 years since I have seen the show, so I will have to answer this once I am done rewatching everything!

    Favorite Quote: Megatron: "Either you're lying, or you're stupid!"
    Starscream: "I'm stupid! I'm stupid!" or "Oh look! the girls have come to rescue their boyfriends!"

    Alright, I'll join in.

    Favorite Episode: Webworld

    Favorite Character: Optimus Prime - I know it's cliche, but he's the hero. He's the ideal commander, the guy that keeps his cool in even the worst in times and just his presence lifts other Autobots spirits. When you see him, you know everything will be okay.

    Favorite Scene: When Galvatron is given random junk to build something with as therapy, and in seconds he constructs a gun.

    Favorite quote: "Nobody panic! Let's figure out what's going on, then we'll panic." - Rodimus Prime.

    Favorite Episode: Roll For It (the one where Megatron steals an anti-matter formula to use to power up all the energon cubes he had accumulated)

    Favorite Character: Optimus Prime!!! Without him, there'd be no Transformers.

    Favorite Scene: Toughie... I'll go with the one where Mirage and Hound sneaks into the lab without being noticed by Rumble in the episode "Roll For It"

    Favorite Quote: I have lots of favorite quotes, especially ones from the movie. Um, can I get back with you on this one?
