    ok, it was semester exams at my high school, so me and my pal Queso were hanging out waiting for a friend to get done taking a test. Well i offered him to watch either the 1987 gi joe movie or the 1986 transformers movie, he chose transformers. he loved the HELL out of that movie :lolol  it was hilarious when he went "no, they wouldn't kill optimus off....(ten seconds later)....damn, they actually did it" haha he now can recognize g1 characters from the movie (all i did was point to each character and named who they were for him). he is a music lover so of course he enjoyed the badass music in the movie

    (question is, have you gotten someone to like transformers using the original series or any other series MINUS the movie?)

    Can't say I have, since I always use TFTM (1986) to introduce people to TF.

    I got half my Japanese club in my high school interested in Transformers (Beast Wars, specifically) thanks to the Beast Wars Neo Movie (May have been BWII...I'm not so sure)

    Never got anyone hooked onto Transformers, but I did get my brother interested in TFs again when the 07 Movie came out.

    I got my three best friends hooked to Transformers :lol 
    I had a big sleepover and we watched the '86 movie and they've been fangirls ever since XD We eventually went to watch all of the Animated series, TFTM, and most of G1 seasons 1 and 2

    Most of my friends actually like the Generation 1 series more than the movies but none are actually "hooked" but one of my friends used to collect transformers he only collected beast wars and cybertron but stoped just before the classics line. Most only play call of duty all day.

    I've gotten a few of my friends to sing "The Touch" after watching the '86 movie :lol . But none have become addicted as I am.

    My wife warmed to Tfs after watching Beast Machines...but only a little. She also liked Animated. She thought the 1986 movie was silly...no one's perfect.

    I have a friend who had enjoyed the 2007 movie and so I had her watch the 1986 movie when her boyfriend-to-be stood her up and she came to my house instead. Never tried getting people to watch anything other than the film as it seems the perfect jumping on point.

    Wait, tell a lie, I had the same friend watch "Scramble City" as it's on the DVD with the movie in Region 2 and an interview with Peter Cullen also on the disc.

    She now knows who Galvatron and Unicron are and why Starscream has a ghost.

    Hooked No but I loaned a friend my animated series and movies. She has watched them and Like bumble bee. She has a few Bee figures and I think likes the Animated series pretty good.
