I'm sure there have been plenty of topics on this before, but whatever. What is your favorite Transformers series? I have to say, even though I grew up on both G1 and Beast Wars, Animated to me is the definitive series. Sure, it may not have had the most favorable animation style, but it had a strong narrative, which I feel is far more important. It took the best ideas of every Transformers series before it and put it into one giant melting pot, which is one of the things I loved about it. It was especially nice when it gave G1 updated designs to characters, along with having homages to both G1 and Beast Wars. Not to mention having voice actors from the old series come back was an added bonus. Sure, as I said, it had its weak points, and there were some really strange episodes, but it was also nice to see Hasbro take a different approach and try something new with the series instead of playing it safe like they had with the Armada Trilogy. Another thing I love were how the toys were 99% accurate to the design of the characters on the show, even down to the transformation. For me, that is key because even at 4, I never liked how some of my toys never looked anything like the guys on the show. Whether it was Galvatron being gray instead of purple, Ramjet/Thrust/Dirge not having proper looking cone heads, to simple things like mouths instead of plates like on Brainstorm. They were simplistic designs, with simplistic transformations, and yet, I feel they are some of the best Transformers toys out there. In fact, the show being prematurely cancelled has kind of ruined Transformers for me to the point that I have been getting rid of the majority of my collection that isn't Animated. I even watched all 98 episodes of G1 back in Jan hoping that would get my mood back into Transformers, but a las, it did not. The movies do not help either. With that said, what series do you like the most and why?
