    While I thought the transformer cartoon movie had some cool moments that I have seen on youtube, for me it marked the end of the best cartoon series ever. You know the saying, if it isn't broken then don't fix it. Well that applied when they killed off Megatron and replaced him with Galvatron. Dumb! The generation 1 toons were the best and I am sure glad I grew up watching them. Long live the 80s!!

    Yeah, I didn't like the idea of them going to the year 4 billion with the animated film but it is what it is.

    1. What? I mean... I don't know what you're talking about
    2. This is the Toy Forum... this probably belongs in the General Discussion

    Meh, to each their own, but I liked the smaller(ish) cast post-movie.

    Bah weep gragnah weep nini bong young bot', we all know the feel, but I felt the megatron to galvatron sequence was great, it was cool and creepy, also season 3 maked the true end of the american cartoon, then we had takara making some great cartoons like victory and headmasters, the true end was when generation 2 came around. Tftm will remain my favorite movie of all time, it had a great soundtrack, characterization, no nonsense, no excuses, just 80's at their best.

    Also, take a few weeks to fit in before you create a thread, people get pissy when people have threads that don't belong where they need to be.

    Welcome to the Toy Discussion Forum. I hope you survive the experience.

    Also, my preference is tied to the 1987-1988 JG1 Headmasters. And its 2015-??? follow-ups.

    And the Japanese toy variants.

    Well obviously the reason they fixed it is because it was broken in the first place. Transformers only became awesome with the movie. Before that is was pretty lame.
    Anyway, you can think what you want Brandon, just dont write anymore TF fiction. Deviations sucked ass.

    Well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    Transformers became HARDCOAR EXTREEEMZ!!!11!!1! with the Movie, it was doing perfectly fine with the target audience before then. Hell, the movie scarred some of those kids for life. And it's not like they didn't address heavier subjects in the series before the movie either. Alpha Trion sacrificing himself to activate Vector Sigma, War Dawn as a whole. There are tons of things that were touched on without having to GRIMDARK KILLZORZ everyone. I stayed a fan after the movie came out, but I can definitely say that it lost some of it's magic after that. I really didn't regain that magic until RID, maybe not even until Dreamwave G1.

    Nonaense. Its only after the movie happened and season 3 and 4 that there was any "magic" in the first place. I can see btw why Dreamwave appealed to you cause everything but the last issues was pretty much geewun navelstaring fanservice.
    And really, again with the emotional scarring ?
    I have been reading the marvel uk comicsand all i see in the letterpages is praise for the movie and the post movie cast, a handfull of people asking about op and a couple of the older guys and "grimlock" after a while very peculiarly starting to complain about the new guys.
    Didnt see nothing about scarred children.
    Besides, that old song sounded like so much bullying to get what you want whenpeople first started that urban myth, frankly its just insulting after all these years. We are 30 or 40 year olds, if you havent lived through worse than the killing of a few cartoon characters you must have lived a very sheltered life indeed.

    ...

    So basically someone disagrees with you so you throw out "geewun navelstaring fanservice" as a rebuke? Guess who is a fan of JP animated G1 fiction, and wasn't exposed to it until after RID hit the US? This guy. Dreamwave brought back characters I cared about, and addressed them in a good fashion. THAT is why I liked them. Assuming that I liked it solely because I'm, let's see, a "geewunner" is pure "nonaense".

    Thank you, though, for getting into a flame war solely because someone disagreed with you.

    I know people that had kids that were inconsolable for days after that movie. Hell, my 3 year old still brings up Charlotte from Charlotte's Web. But yeah, you do you, I'm sure you have any empirical evidence other than the Marvel UK letters pages?

    Bullying? What the hell are you even talking about? And not only that, you don't know my life OR the loss I've suffered, so we can drop that condescending shit right there. Me talking about 8-10 year old me is a hell of a lot different than me talking about soon to be 42 year old me. But I guess it's easy to talk in such a way when hiding behind an ocean and thousands of miles of fiberoptic cable. You know what else is easy? Reporting someone's post.
