    I was on a different fansite and saw a thread like this. Granted, that other site had 10 years of fiction to pull from, and this one has 28, but I'd still like to see what you guys come up with! Personally, I don't like the Headmasters. To me the concept is just weird. Also, I wasn't too happy with them fighting human criminals in Animated, and even just Animated in general (even though I know lots of fans really liked it). Some episodes in G1 (Autobot Spike comes to mind) were just bad! For those of you who put G1 on it's high pedestal, have you seen that episode! There were a couple others that were just... off.

    So, what do you guys think has been the worst part of the TransFormers fiction? :)

    Transformers: Energon. For all the faults of G1, at least it had the benefit of people trying to crack what this 'Transformers' stuff was.

    Energon was just a train-wreck that had decent toys.

    God, I hope so. Because that's what I'm voting for.

    I say it doesn't just count, but takes the cake.

    Honourable mentions go to Kiss Players, the Unicron Trilogy children, Beast Machines Nightscream, the G1 cartoon (especially how people love to think it's the definitive iteration of G1) and Bayformers.

    I loved the movies, and near every toy that came from it.

    And countless Japanese spinoffs that make absolutely no sense to me probably takes the cake. Beast Wars II had the worst of this, in my opinion. To this day, I'm still digging up ridiculous and obscure pages about yet another manga made about the ultimate shellformers.

    Kiss Players also falls into that category.

    Yeah some aspects of the random is annoying but that's any franchise.

    The role humans play within the series more often than not. For every good 1 there are 10 bad ones.

    I didn't like the human criminals in Animated. I especially didn't like the archer guy.

    For series (that I can judge. For example, I've neither seen nor heard much about the japanese G1)
    1. Kiss Players
    2. Energon
    3. Japanese Beast Wars
    4. Sunbow
    5.Robots in disguise

    Trends
    1. totally incompetent villians
    2. Bad human characters (it was originally Kicker, but I decided to expand)
    3. Horrible humor both of the Movie toilet variety and bad machine puns- 'kick him in his afterburner'.
    4. Totally random things in G1 (such as Giant Purple Griffins, cyber bug spray, and car washes of doom).
    5. post-movie G1 toy gimmicks

    I have some in mind.

    The gross sexual humor of ROTF. (Seriosuly Devestator's youknowwhat's?! What were they thinking?!)

    Sam's parents and Leo from the films.

    Some of the fandoms fights about trivial things, However their are good and valid arguments all the same.

    Armada's often medicore storys and characters. Starscream and Alexis are good in my opinon.

    Beast Machines's took the BW characters and made them out of character a bit.

    Hahaha! Ok, now I don't feel bad saying it. Yes, the fandom.


    Oh, and I thought Headmasters were dumb as hell when I was a kid - but now I think they kick ass!
