    As we love different types of styles in the franchise is there one that doesn't look appealing to you at all? Not bad but not good either?

    Mine would be the G1 style. Don't get me wrong it's the franchise's first aesthtic and without it there would be no style for the franchise. It's just that it doens't appeal to me as greatly as the Movie,Animated and Prime aesthtic does for me. It works for older people and that's great but it's easy to see why we needed some type of deversity in styles even if the movies never happend. I mean the style in the Unicron trilogy is no different from the G1 style it's just more detailed. It's just the same boring and bland look.

    However I do like how the G1 aspect is put into designs like in IDW and WFC/FOC. They both envoke G1 perfectly yet make it fresh and new not to mention have it look more exciting.

    Again not saying it's bad. It's good in it's own way it just doesn't appeal to me.

    G1 is probably the most bland of any of them, in my opinion, followed by Energon (with the exception of Mirage). Nothing wrong with them, I just didn't care for them. I'd lump Rescue Bots in there too as "boring", but I cut it some slack because it's obviously a simpler design approach that they went with.

    And to parrot what kaijuguy said, I'm not saying "boring=bad" or anything. And I too understand that without G1 (and the various properties that went into its creation :p  ), there would be no other aesthetic to compare to. It's just the aesthetics that aren't my favourite.

    Prime, G1 cartoon, Rescue Bots (though the show is okay) Games, and Armada. (I'm considering it different than the rest of the UT because it generally employed less detail, "chubbier" proportions and blockier shapes)

    Beast Machines.

    While I love the Vehicon designs, I like my robots looking like robots, so I don't much like any of the Maximals. Loved them in Beast Wars, but Beast Machines? nah.

    Just wait for the "Bayformers' designs are boring because I can't tell Ironhide apart from Sideswipe apart from Megatron apart from Barricade and they all have the same face"-posts. ;)

    Well, I liked Optimus, Cheetor & Blackarachnia, so I guess I'm kinda split when it comes to the Maximals. I'm also 50/50 when it comes to whether or not I liked Silverbolt, so he's not swaying it either way.

    Prime. There's nothing original or interesting about it. It's like it tried to blend the two most unique aesthetics but only became that much more bland.

    G1. Blocky blocks stacked on more blocks with the same generic face.

    G1; it gave us some iconic images such as Soundwave and Optimus, but many many more who just blended into a sea of blocks.

    the latter two of the Unicron Trilogy, and I blame the shitty CGI for it. All of the others have something that I can like and appreciate.
