Prime. RID is worthless to me. I would not accept the DVD even if it was given to me.
I think I'll remember Prime longer, it was definitely a more ambitious show, just a shame the second half kind of had its style cramped by meddlesome execs. RID2015 was a more pleasant experience, because I went in expecting a low stakes Saturday morning cartoon, I wasn't too invested and enjoyed what I got. I really like the new designs we got but hate that barely any of them were made into toys.
They both have their strengths and weaknesses.
Prime has a nice cinematic feel while RID does a great job with it's episodic _____ of the week formula even if it lacked any real ambition.
RID is more fun, so I'd go with RID.
Who's hotter: Woopi Goldberg or Rosie O'Donnell?
Predacons rising amazing
S1 really good
Starscream arc amazing
S3 started off meh but it kept getting worse the final episodes were awful especially the soundwave one
I love them both, but RID didn’t forget to give the characters personality beyond their job description. That, and I love the influx of so many new characters. It was great to get a TF show for once that wasn’t all about Megatron & Optimus.
That said, TFP has some of my absolute favorite takes on iconic characters like Soundwave, Starscream & Arcee, while adding in some cool new guys like Knockout.
So RID wins it for me. But they’re both awesome.
In my opinion I think Prime took much more serious risks like having Unicron be earth etc. RID was for a target audience way younger and I was so bored with episodes that I had to force myself to watch them to continue having watched every TF show.
Also it's standalone mostly so if you miss episodes you don't miss much. Prime had more arcs and more of a plot.
Prime easily. NuRID is meh.
Transformers: Prime would be my vote.
While the show may be far from perfect, I as many others have come to enjoy what Transformers: Prime has to offer. And despite the criticism it receives around here,
based on what I've seen the Transformers community generally speaks very positively about the show.
That's not to say that Transformers: Robots in Disguise is a bad show by any means. But personally, I just feel that it was not a very good sequel to Transformers: Prime.
I watched both shows in their entirety and if i think about RID a can recall a couple of moments, while if i think about Prime i can remember almost everything, and i haven't rewatched it in years.
Even now, if i look at my figures i find myself imagining them talking and acting as their TFP counterparts, even when they look more G1.
I guess my vote is on Prime.
Prime is my favorite TF show ever. RiD has its strong suits too and I can ignore how it doesn't really feel like a sequel, but I felt there were far less moments that made me go "Wow, that's awesome!" and I found the characters to be less interesting (I can't judge plot for obvious reasons).
Prime hands down for me. The show that got me back into Transformers after G1.
RID I watched about 10 episodes of and got bored.
Prime was prime-time entertainment for me and by Primus, Bulkhead, I needed that!
For me, Prime by a long shot. It got me back into Transformers
RiD wasn’t bad, it was just boring
The TF equivalent of Shrek vs Sponge Bob?
Really enjoyed Prime. Kids loved it too!
My son and I tried to watch nuRiD...and we couldn't get past the third or so episode. While it had its moments, we just weren't compelled to keep watching. Unfortunately, I think all of us have been trained now to want to watch seasons in binge mode, where episodes leave a nugget to compel someone to watch the next one to complete a story arc. Prime had a smidge of that whereas I just didn't feel anything with nuRid at the beginning (I'm certain that came later but it's already too late).
Although I'm not a fan of cartoons at all, certainly Prime was better. It showed again that TF can be serious. It was epic and beautiful story. It looks amazing visually. It also brings a lot of emotion and affection to characters. They are loveble. Prime brought many new things to franchise. RID is just plain, it's fun and that's all. Decepticons are mostly useless, Autobots don't look like a team at all, as much as I have seen. Just a group of guys and girls, maybe colleagues, but not friends. Most of episodes are separated from each other, you can watch them in random order. Autobots are too humanized and you can totally forget, that they are aliens. And visual style is too simple for Transformers! I don't feel, that they are heavy mechanical beings at all, they're just shining plastic toys.
Although I enjoyed Robots in Disguise (2015), I prefer Prime over it due to the story, cast, animation, tone and I find myself rewatching episodes of it again and again.
I'm the same. Prime feels like it was aimed at "everybody" while RID15 feels like it's strictly aimed at kids. I got half way through RID15 before the boredom was too powerful that I couldn't finish the episode, much less the series. It's way too dumbed down and doesn't even feel like it fits with Prime/FOC/WFC which.... Isn't it suppose to be a continuation of Prime? None of it made sense to me and that always bugged me with each episode.
Except Prime is more like Ashley Graham. To some, it's sexy gold. To others, it's a tub of lard.
Prime for me. I was watching RID when it was starting, but lost interest before the 1st season reached its half point. RID was just... "not quite my tempo".
I really enjoyed Prime a lot though. It was a darker take, and I'm into that type of story. I get TFs are a toy line to the general public, but it's very much story heavy.
Also, I'm starting to get sick off all the happy-go-lucky vibe of most media of recent times.
