    In response to that Scourge saved Transformers I've been seeing, I made a poll to see which saved TF's more

    RID Scourge - IDK

    Cybertron - It made people like it again after the failure or Energon

    Movieverse - With movieverse, Transformers has more fans

    So basically I ask, what saved transformers the most?

    to me none of those saved Transformers the most , RID and Movie verse id rank tied for number 2. Cybertron a distant 3rd perhaps

    the series that truly saved Transformers was Beast Wars as if it had been a disaster it would have killed the brand. but it was a great success and brought many new fans into the hobby. After G2 era ended Transformers was closer to the brink than any time before or since, Beast Wars saved Transformers from becoming just another cartoon based toy line from the 1980s and 1990s.

    I'd say Beast Wars saved TFs from being forgotten. New toys and a new show and fiction. Cybertron redeemed the Unicron Trilogy in more ways than one, and the movieverse just brought in more money...they didn't really save it.

    I wouldn't say that anything "saved" the Transformers. Ever since Beast Wars, I've felt that Transformers would always be around one way or another until the end of time. I would say that the live movies have helped expand the Transformers brand to a wider fanbase, but I certainly wouldn't say that they saved the Transformers.

    Everything we have gotten since 1996 in toys, comics, games, shows, or movies happened because of Beast Wars. That series kept the Transformers brand from going under.

    I'm not entirely sure what Transformers needed saving from, so I'll just give the credit to Thunderblast's robo-nipples.

    Beast Wars did restored the Transformers brand to a new life, then subsequent series (not BM, even if I love it) did the rest :p

    None of your choices, as others have said, Beast Wars revived and saved the Brand.

    SCOURGE!!!!!!

    On a different note, the Movieverse did bring in a lot of new people who weren't fans of the franchise before and brought back old ones that stopped collecting and following the franchise.

    I don't know who he is, but I'm pretty sure this Scourge fellow saved Transformers.

    Not sure if saved is the right wording. The only real low point was g2.

    Beast wars brought the transformers into a new generation of kids where dreamwave comics sucked a lot of the old fans back in by modernizing and giving what some asked for for a long time.


    Movie verse just did the above and brought in a general audience who probably could give two flying rips about toys. The new generation combined with older ones , though, helped make some really strong sales.

    I can't really select one , this is a very limiting poll imo.

    Beast Wars saved it, Movieverse renewed it.
