    You had to catch me at work where I can't search images as readily...



    Right off the top of my head would be the hunter green Seeker in Shockwave's headquarters in The Ultimate Doom, he's the one that gets pasted by Brawn as he charges through the wall, if memory serves.

    I always like generics, they make an army feel like an army

    the best generics were all those in the cybertron series. each planet we saw felt like it was actually populated because of the generic hordes. even earth with the refugees and ancient decepticons. they did generics so much better than energon and other series.

    I feel this is an appropriate thread to reignite some PTSD into the 6 people (including me) who still remember and/or care about this game.

    Shout-out to the Vehicons; they looked pretty cool, and actually started off reasonably tough for mere goons. Lamentations to the degradation of their aim and endurance, assuredly, but props for providing some of TFP's funniest moments.

    hell yeah, the decepticlones ruled, I loved some of their designs

    and they were treated much more like people, which worked better, but yes, sick designs

    Is this limited to examples of living Transformers?

    I also truly appreciate the countless millions of dead Transformers populating Megatron's shell yards.

    Yes, that was a nice g1 throwback
    but the living ones who got caught in the virus were more interesting

    Yes! Lets have some appreciation for the Armada game! Love those designs.

    Speaking of which. Has anyone ever compiled a detailed list of every single generic in the Armada anime and what G1 animation models they use? That would interest me. I know the TFWiki mentions some of them, but there's a ton in episodes like Alliance that go unmentioned.

    Those freaky cloakers from WFC. That they used the same creepy voice for BOTH factions says a lot.

    That's one generic I wouldn't mind having a Titan class toy of.
