    Well for me, the bits that I consider major pieces of fiction that I haven't seen/read are:

    Marvel G1/G2/UK - In Progress
    Headmasters - In Progress
    Victory
    Zone and everything after.
    BWII - Waiting for a complete fansub
    BW Neo - Waiting for a complete fansub
    Botcon/Club comics

    + a whole bunch of minor stuff, mangas, international comics, japanese or american counterparts (ie i've seen Armada but not Micron Legend, Galaxy Force but not Cybertron), novels, etc.

    How about everyone else?

    Also, of the things you haven't been exposed to, which do you care to read or see, if any?

    I'd like to dig into most of that stuff even if its pretty painful. gotta do something while we wait for the next series...

    The Club Comics and the DW G1 series I know very little about. I also haven't read most of the UK G1 Marvel run.

    Masterforce
    Victory
    Micron Legend Manga
    Comic Bon Bon's BW/BW Metals Manga

    I'm familiar with, but only in a kind of bullet point general summary way; I've "missed" more then I've seen.

    Armada/Micron Legend
    Cybertron/Galaxy Force

    I gave up on both of those series. I had for force myself to watch anything beyond the opening four minutes in Armada, skipping to watch a few "key" episodes (Nemesis Prime, Wheeljack, Starscreams betrayal, and the finale) and still consider the series entirely unwatchable. Galaxy Force/Cybertron, on the other hand, just bored me and I quit watching. I may go back sometime and rewatch it.

    Everything else I've either read or seen.

    As an aside, I rather enjoyed the DW Enegon series and the alternate take that Comic Bon Bons Manga took on BW Neo; especially the twist at the end of Neo. I also prefer Car Robots to RiD, and Superlink to Energon (Uh!). Cream of the crop going to Animated (and the comics) and BW (and their US Comics). Ugh, I'm such a Transformers nerd.

    I'm occasionally rewatching Headmasters, which has been so long it's like it's new to me all over again.

    Then you're one of the lucky ones.I don't know about alot of the Japanese franchises really. Oh, I didn't get into the "All Hail Megatron" storyline much. Does that count?

    The Japanese g1 and Bw series :( . I really need to get a region free DVD player so I can order those boxsets.

    A lot of the early Marvel comics.

    Anything Japanese (aside from HM and the Unicron Trilogy which I've seen)
    The end of RID (missed those eps and not available in Region 1 DVD yet)
    Some of the Club/BotCon stuff for the years I didn't go to that convention

    So pretty much everything that I can't get a hold of due to rarety, or not being released in English or US yet is the only thing stopping me because TF fictions are my favorite part of the fandom and what I enjoy most (well, aside from Kiss Players), but anything else I'll at least give a try.

    most of the Japanese beast wars
    energon (except for a few episodes)
    all of the tf dreamwave comics
    most of idw
    half of RID
    and a few minor stuff

    I don't know anything about the old comics except that Optimus has a nervous breakdown, and imagines he's being eaten by nanomachines.
    I also don't know jack shit about the Unicron Trilogy.
    And I don't know anything about 80% of everything else that isn't Movie-verse or Animated. I grew up watching Beast Wars, but I don't really remember anything beyond Dinobot being my favorite character.

    To put it simply, I'm only well acquainted with Movie-verse and Animated; and I've read some stuff about everything else on TFWiki.

    The comics and Japanese series' mostly.
    Also watched very little of the Unicron trilogy.

    But G1, Beast Wars, Beast Machines, RiD, Animated, and the Movieverse I know well enough.
