If they had a more focused storyline but kept the same characters and designs?
By focused, you mean not as cheezy? Lol. I would definitely watch anything G1, but....I'd want to see the cartoon in CG. If they kept those old cartoon designs but had them in 3D where you wouldn't have as many pops in the animation (I used to work in that biz), I'd be all over that. It would be a real treat for this ol' timer!
I fail to see any real significant difference between what you are proposing and every series we have been given since G1
Unless you are wanting the exact stories and the exact 70s/80s designs, then any reboot is going to be like any other series......NOT REALLY G1
Short answer: Yes. Long answer: Honestly, it feels like half the series they've had are already "G1 Rebooted".
I feel like they were all alternate reality versions.
If it were written like BW was and it didn't end when the post 86 characters get introduced, and indeed if the post 86 characters actually get to play a role of importance at all, big yes.
If it's just a cartoon version of the current IDW verse or Barber's titles in the previous IDW verse, big Unicron-price sized NO.
I'd like a new show related to G1 and IDW characters , things as a different origin of 6 Constructicons would be enthralling a lot.In fact, more iconic characters in recent series have already received enough background.
Yeah, why not? I give all the new shows a chance. If it was good, I'd still watch it, if not, I wouldn't
I can’t see why I wouldn’t.
Yeah, no doubt. I watch the original with my boys already.
I love G1, but i dont want to be stuck in G1 forever, know what i mean? Update character designs, keep the foundations of the concepts intact, but move forward.
Because really, at this point, what I would really like to see is a series that integrates ALL the characters across EVERY series that has been put out.
^^^felt that clip was appropriate
Anyway, It would be the most epic series ever because now you're not handcuffed by anything except for how the f%&$ can it be pulled off succesfully.
Here we would run into an issue for characters with shared names (Optimus Prime), so an idea could be to just rename them, like using their japanese name. example, G1 Optimus Prime stays as Optimus Prime (or go the IDW route and name him Orion Pax?), Masterforce Prime stays Ginrai, RiD'01 Optimus can be named Convoy.
Yep. I'll watch any TF series that comes out. Will I KEEP watching it? It'd depend on the quality of the show.
I love G1, but if you spend your life trying to recreate the past, you'll never get anywhere new.
Let G1 be G1. It has warts, it wasn't perfect, so what? Even if they redid it, it wouldn't be perfect. At best, it would just have new faults.
But what would get me really exited would be the announcement that IDW would redo the first couple of Marvel comics with more consistent and correct art (and maybe throw in a line of dialogue that instead of the acutal Creation Matrix, it was residual energy or something that was transferred to Buster).
(With consistent/correct art I mean correcting things like the pinhead on Optimus in some shots, the appearance of the toy version of Ratchet/Ironhide in some shots...stuff like that.)
I'd be curious to wanna check it out but I'm not sure I'd keep watching though. I'd just hope they wouldn't turn the look of the bots into the anime look cause I'm not a fan of that at all. I guessing that is what we'd get if it was done just look at ducktales,....so enough said about that new toon look.
Yes, to answer the original question. I'm an 80's baby and G1 TF was my introduction to the Transformers. I also agree on both statements above. I would prefer the show to still be cartoon animated not computer animated graphics ( I don't know the technical terms) like recent incarnations of the series.
It could indeed intro the JG1 and IDW characters since they're G1 adjacent.
G1 was a product of the 80s, and none of the attempts to reboot it have felt right to me. (Looking at YOU, IDW!) To me G1 needs the cheesiness to … well … BE G1. Trying to go serious just leaves out the fun IMO. Give me giant purple griffins and ninja robots for peace and the Matrix being stored in a human brain and Throttlebot brains in RC cars and Micromaster wrestling.
I'll take any or all of that over Deceptigods and Enigmas of Combination any day.
