    The only two I've ever cared about, Beast Wars/Beast Machines from the later half of the G1 continuity and the Animated continuity.

    You realize that BW, G1 and IDW are all parts of the same continuity family, right? Hell, WFC/FOC are the prequels to Prime and Rescue Bots!

    As for the topic at hand, Animated. No contest.

    Animated. Though I dig IDW, Beast Wars, Galaxy Force (based on the concept of it as a standalone series, but i like the English dub better) and Aligned.

    In the other thread some people complained about lumping all parts of a continuity family together - makes sense if you only like a specific series/line.

    the ones i made up as a kid, playing with my toys, before i ever saw the show. before i had an optimus prime. when Pointblank ran the autobots. and Shrapnel lead the decepticons.

    plus gobots. and later, occasionally exo squad, star wars, and even gi joe would make cameos.

    the best one, isn't g1. it isn't a cartoon. nor comic, or video game.

    it is the one you create yourself. after all. they are toys.

    Wow... Real hard to choose! I love most of the list, but in the end I chose Animated. Not really because I thought it scored higher on the awesomometer, but because In NO WAY was I expecting to love the show and the line anywhere near as much as I did!

    BTW... I would sell a lung for that Steampunk Soundwave if it were a real fig that transformed into a player piano!

    Don't start that debate again. They do not work together in the slightest way, so its easier to consider them separate. And even if they did work together and could be considered in direct continuity, they're too different and so its easy to have one be your favourite and dislike the other. Best to have them different options in the poll either way.

    Animated, of course, is the best continuity.

    How? I'm just saying that its better to have them separate options because they are so different that you can have one be a favourite and dislike the other.

    They don't work together in the slightest way is a massive stretch. They work almost perfectly together except for a few minor discrepancies that frankly are no worse than the continuity issues in the G1 Sunbow cartoon.

    However, you're right that it's best to have them seperate, because it's best to have all distinct series separate - like G1 should be split into Sunbow, Marvel, Dreamwave, IDW, and Beast Era. And even the convention comics if necessary.
