    Ok, say you have a friend who's seen the Bay movies and thinks that's all to Transformers. How would you go about showing them that there's more to Transformers than meets the eye?

    Personally, I would show my friend what got me into the franchise and that would be Transformers Cybertron. It look very interesting as I was flipping through the channels one day and to this day IMHO, it's the one of the best series out there. It has great suspense, good story, and great characters and designs.

    Show him WFC and FOC. They're really great games and they're how my brother got into the Transformers fandom, actually. :D 

    Edit: Ow, god! How did I forget MTMTE! I extremely recommend those, too.

    I think the Vault book would be great for this sort of thing.

    Is He A Gamer? If so, have him get WFC and you guys could do co-op. That'll show him.

    For Television Shows: I would show him Animated Or Prime.

    I echo the suggestions of the comics or the video games, both give good ideas of the characters' personalities.

    This. The new More than Meets the Eye/Robots in Disguise comics are good stories that anyone can grasp. The games I don't find outstanding, but as a Transformers introduction they're alright. If your friend is still looking for more, than check out the 'toons.
