Since it's been close to 30 years since G1 came out, I think we can all agree it still looks good to this day, I can watch G1 episodes and feel like like the fans who watched it when it orginally aired. In another 30 years, what will the fans say about Prime? Obviously it still won't be as good as Prime, and unlike Beast Wars (the last CGI series before Prime), it still won't have as many fans as Beast Wars does today. Now I admit the CGI in Prime looks better than Beast Wars, but look at Star Wars, people like the old series better! CGI isn't everything, heck it doesn't amount to squat in my book. So like I said Prime looks better, but to me it just looks like the animation style is trying to ripoff Dreamworks anymation. The humans on the show looked like they just walked out of Sheck, just like green Prime next season! Why don't they call him Ogre-mus Prime? Let's talk about the other characters: Prime's version of Megatron looks the worst. He looks like Michael Bay's Megatron (not a good thing). He doesn't look like G1 at all. It's a good thing he's voiced by Frank Welker. WHY couldn't they find a better voice actor for Starscream? They could've got somone who sounded like Chris Collins but this guy sounds like Julia Child. I'm also think it was dumb to make Unicron not a planet, but he comes from the Earth's soil. Is this robots were talking about or fantasy soil? Another thing that makes Prime look worse than G! is that it takes itself way too literally. There's no fun in this series and when they try to make a joke it seems forced or like the writers didn't want to put a joke in but the Hub said that you have to have some jokes. The only funny character is Agent Fowler, when he says I can haz cheesburger? Now the things that are good in Prime is thr fight scenes, it looks like the fight scenes, in G1 the fights were just shooting lasers but in Prime. Optimus isn't afraid to speak with his fists, and Megaton wouldn't mind showing Optimus his sword. Those hand to combat scenes are good, but what holds Prime back the most: It going back to the status quo. Like when it looked like Bulkhead would be out of comission, and he walked down the hall thinking he had been replaced by Smokescreen, who who cares? 2 episodes later and Bulk's back out on the field, kicking Con-butts along with Smokescreen. It's shameless advertising. And the Insecticons, when Arachnid took control of them, then in the next episode, who' commanding them? Lord Megatron! Even though it looked like the Insecticons would be their own villain in the show as a secondary villain, they pledge their loyality to Megatron. In 30 years, I think people will either forget about Prime or say it's not as good as G1. It' good, but at the end of the day it doesn't bring anything new to the franchise.
