    Hello Transformers Fan. I am a new fan who was introduced by the Live-Action Movie. I have sinced checked out the following:
    G1- Seasons 1 & 2, 1986 Movie
    Beast Wars- A few Season 1 episodes.
    Live-Action Movie Trilogy- All 3.
    TFA- The whole series.
    TFP- The whole series.

    Even though I don't cosider myself a noob, I have been wondering what continuity I should check out to broaden my knowledge on TF's. Kinda want to know a few lesser known TF's and different stories. Should I check out G1 Seasons 3&4, the Unicron Trilogy, or what else?

    +1.

    Also, you should check out some of the Japanese G1 shows, like Masterforce and Victory, and if I were you, I'd finish Beast Wars, because it gets really good during S2.

    Beast Wars

    Then the Japanese shows (maybe just Masterforce).

    Then RiD.

    Watch the post movie episodes of the original series. Then since you'll be able to appreciate it fully, watch the rest of Beast Wars and Beast Machines. You won't be disappointed.

    I'd recommend that you finish Beast Wars. It gets really good and you won't be disappointed.

    Finish Beast Wars, watch Beast Machines, read the G1 Marvel comics (UK and US), then read IDW's Last Stand of the Wreckers comic. The two new ongoing comics from IDW (RiD and MtMtE) seem to be getting positive reviews as well, but I can't speak to those personally. Between those and what you've already watched, you'll have covered basically all of the best that TF media has to offer.

    At this point it seems like I'll be going in this order:
    Rest of G1: The Hub and YouTube
    Beast Wars: Youtube
    Then I will probably get the Last Stand of The Wreckers comic since I've heard a lot about it.
    The rest I will worry about later.

    Season one was the worst of Beast Wars. It gets a lot better. Beast Machines is also good. Cybertron was meant to be a stand alone series to that really works on its own. Armada gets better so if you can out up with a terrible beginning, I recommend watching that too.

    The Unicron Trilogy looks like it will be my least favorite of all the continuities to me... But the worst... That's reserved for Kiss Players.

    Yes, Beast Wars. Machines may be a good choice to follow it but brace for drastic changes. (And now the hordes of defenders come to fannon away the drastic changes in Machines....)

    As for comics, Last Stand is good but I'd also recommend the two ongoing comic series, More than Meets the Eye and Robots in Disguise. They are both really good too.

    These are the two stories about Bumblebee and Rodimus right?
