    G1.

    It's got 30 years of story and characters behind it and pretty much everything else is based on it. There really is no contest.


    -ZacWilliam, of course BW and BM are part of G1. :)

    Sounds about right. Take away all the elements and characters introduced in G1 from later versions and there's probably not really much left of note.
    G1 gave the franchise so much and since new series continue to draw on and build on those elements there must be something of enduring worth there.

    What's that phrase? 'Standing on the shoulders of giants'. :)  Although I suppose by that definition anything that includes all of G1 and then adds to it should be better than G1.

    I'm a child of G1 so I gotta go with G1 and then I go with TF: Prime, I do wish Prime will add more Autobots like they have Smokescreen and Wheeljack but I want Ironhide Optimus Prime's right hand man....and his other Jazz.... but the backstory is amazing they added from G1 w Orion Pax who was a energon Dock worker and now a data clerk its still cool because he is a hero and Peter Culllen is Optimus and that no knock on the other voices of the character ....
    PS Pray for us in New Orleans we are going through Hurricane Isaac and its 7yrs since Katrina ravaged us and we are dealing w lots of bad wind and rain and floods....Til all are one...

    Would Cybertron be its own generation, or would the generation be A/E/C?

    There really isn't one. You could argue that some were more successful than others, but they all brought original concepts to the franchise that have helped it grow and develop. In terms of sheer impact (both on modern culture and the brand itself), though, it's hard to top G1, and that's one of the reasons it's remembered so fondly by so much of the community.

    Kiss players is the best, followed by Beast Wars.

    I think the success of the incarnations based on G1 kind of proves that it's G1.

    G1.

    Everything else is either a good or bad repaint of the original mold.

    In some cases, a good or bad Classics version of the original toy.
    (still hate Universe 2.0 Galvatron, but love Energon's interpretation)
