    How would you feel if they were to reboot G1 using stories from the original G1, but making a real story line/ continuity?

    NO. We should be moving forward.

    Just because its a reboot doesn't mean its not moving forward considering there are tons of Transformers cartoons out there that are all just new stories with the same reused names.

    I thought the Alienged Countunity was prety much that.

    Of course Hasbro could always do it but it may seem pointless due to how many G1 esque storys,toys,and comics that are dedicated to G1. However if they did a older targeted show doen in the same manner as G.I.Joe Renegades and the IDW and old Marvel comcs then why not? We could have three shows for each age group like Rescue Bots for the younger viewrs,Prime for the older kids to adults,and the G.I.Joe Renegades style Tf show that's G1 based and is for the adults. That way we can please all age groups.

    That's my idea anyway.

    I want a straight-up adaptation of Marvel G1 - G1 as it was originally intended to be before Sunbow screwed it up.

    Half of me thinks "could be good", while the other half thinks G1 rebooting is pretty much what most new animated series and comics are doing already, in one sense or another.

    Large casts, flat trucks and everything in-between? Fine by me.

    Well when I say reboot I am thinking more of a comic adaption or something like that where the characters are all the same and the stories are somewhat the same. I suppose try to picture what the 80's cartoon would have been if it were made now or in the same tone as the movie was.

    What? Maybe that's the wrong way to describe it but isn't the Aligned Countunity also based off many of it's aspects from G1?

    Oh.

    High Moon's facination with G1 is simply theier take on the countuity while Prime is it's own beast. I'm happy that we have options in this countunty when it comes to styles and ideas. :)  That's what I love about it.

    No, I much rather leave G1 alone and just go foward.

    I rather see Transformers have another Beast Wars moment or Batman Beyond moment. When I mean that, I mean as in something new and creative. Even if Hasbro wants to keep the bots and cons, show off new characters. That's what I want, I want to see characters with no other versions to look back on for examples of how they should act.

    That's an fun idea. Or maybe they can revist the Transtech idea only with new characters thrown in the mix. I'd love to see that happen. :)

    If not a complete reboot, I wouldn't mind if they decided to finish off what they started. I know that they already did that in japan, but I want an American cartoon lol

    I think reboot is the wrong term for this because a reboot is essentially what we always get with new cartoon series. What I'd like to see as a cartoon is more along the lines of this:


    The IDW comics ... without all the stupid shit that happened in between. It's more of a redo of G1.
