As a child, did you support the heroes or the villains?

    well when i was kid, and i played with my transformers... i am pretty sure the decepticons usually dominated the autobots.

    but not because i supported them more, i just thought as a kid, that they would easily defeat the autobots, being that the autobots are cars, and the decepticons are military things. :lol  like TANKS!

    I always root for the good guys, but good villains are always appreciated.

    Villains were almost always my favorite, though I knew they'd always lose so I really didn't root for them all that much.

    Ha, when I was a child, I had no concept of the whole grey moral stuff. I was just all: "good guys yay, bad guys boo."

    Starscream was my favorite. Therefore, Decepticons.

    Even though I liked all the Transformers back then, I definitely sided with the Autobots because they were getting their tailpipes kicked in the early G1 Marvel comics by the Decepticons. Up until #12, it didn't look like the Autobots were going to survive.

    You have to have good villains to be a great hero. A lesson wasted on KO series like TF Prime and Bayformers.

    I always rooted for both sides.

    Because I'm secretly Sideways manipulating both sides. :ev:

    Never miss an opportunity to rip on the new stuff, do you? ;) 

    I agree with the first half of your statement at any rate.

    Prime had good villains such as Silas. Also Megatron and Soundwave are good villains to they're problem is they just don't go out into the field enough and leave everything up to the vechicons. PLUS: Knock out :) 

    While in Bay formers its the same thing. Think in the first movie how powerful the cons were. But in the sequels they also relied on the proto forms to fight to much. Also Sentinel Prime was a kick ass bad guy in DotM.

    Point is Prime and Bay-verse both have good villains its just the generic foots soldiers holding them back.

    The clones ALWAYS fall after a shot why not send in the real troops to take the enemy down?

    I supported the Maximals but I also supported Darth Vader at the time. I thought he was a super hero cause he wore a cape.

    This.

    Transformers were so awesome I didn't care much about sides. Plus the 'cons never really felt all that evil to me.... I know they tried to make them evil, but keeping things kid friendly kind of killed that effect.

    Maybe I'd give the edge to the Autobots, if only because they had more characters and the Dinobots. :D

    I honestly don't remember. I didn't watch a whole lot of transformers as a kid, I got interested right before I entered high school, around the time I got really interested in engineering. But for what it's worth, I always cheered against darth vader, not nessiscarily for the rebels, but against darth vader.

    I supported the Autobots but I wanted the Cons to give them a good fight though.
