    Beast Wars for TV show definitely, the story was amazing. It caught a whole new generation of fans and not to mention after rewatching it, I can't believe they were able sneak in some of those more "adult fan" references like "find any new positions" lol Great stuff, the characters were all very well developed and built ground up.

    Comic line? Not sure, I plan to get into the IDW universe though.

    Toys, I simply love the Beast Wars toys and more recently the Alternators. Classics are good too, but I wasn't around for G1 so I probably don't appreciate their full value.

    Absolutely hands down Beast Wars, if you're speaking of the TV series. Brilliant all around stuff.

    If you mean comic series? I don't care so much what the art looks like - I read the comics... so whatever Furman has done over his career is my fave in that respect.

    Now, if you're talking about toy series... it's a toss up. I love G1 for the nostalgia and Beast Wars for the downright playability.

    Beast Wars no question about it, love the series for the show and the toyline. BW was what got me into transformers since I was a little kid, everything else show wise just dont compare to it, not toyline is a little different cause there are a lot of great figures out there but i'm going to say BW is my fav too.

    TV: Beast Wars. Easily. Great mix of character driven drama and comedy.

    COMIC: IDW. I'm always excited when a new part of the story is unlocked. Spotlight: SHOCKWAVE is still the best individual effort, though.

    TOYS: Beast Wars NEO.

    Show: G1 for the nostalgia factor
    Toys: Cybertron
    Comic: eh, I've not ever really been big into the comics, so I could take 'em or leave 'em.

    However, this may all change when Animated gets released. Everything I've seen so far has me hooked!

    TV Show: Beast Wars. Hands down.

    Comics: Marvel G1. Nostalgia wins all. But The newer G1 stuff is good too.

    Toys: Im kinda partial to Classics, but the new Movie toys are badass.

    Cartoons, Beast Wars by far. Well-defined characters backed up by great writing and a coherent continuity.

    Comics, I'm torn between Marvel G1 and IDW. The Marvel era was marred only by some continuity errors and mind-bending time travel (ah, the joys of retconning!). The IDW universe is shaping up to be something special by the looks of things (currently loving Megatron Origin and looking forward to Devastation).

    Toys: Alts & Classics!

    my favorite series is G1, but I dont think the original cartoon or toys are that great. I like the comics, the Alternators, and the Classics
