    Tough one!

    G1: if only for that we could have a proper bridging between the original series and the Beast Era (Seeing the Great Upgrade and the Pax Cybertronia)
    Transtech: The idea intrigues me
    Animated: Endgame didn't work as a series finale. The show still had a lot of life left in it.

    I'll say Animated. I needed to see Wheeljack speak.

    Fine, I'll say it. G1

    Beast wars was a better show.
    Animated was cut too short

    But if you're only given one shot, it's hard for me not to hunger for more classics. Admit it, if just a signle "lost episode" from say season 2 of g1 were discovered, it would be biggest news since...I don't know what. Imagine a whole new season with the 1984 cast even with all its flaws.

    I agree with you on that. The first 2 seasons were the best then it went kinda downhill...

    I would have to say Animated, Beast Wars is close though. Only reason why I say Animated is cause there was more characters that I liked in Animated than Beast Wars.

    I'd probably go with Animated, since it technically only had a 'season' end as opposed to a 'series' end. (though the season end can function as such). While I like shows like Beast Wars and Beast Machines, they ended well so bringing them back for more can take away from what has been done. (Heck BM did that to BW to an extent). G1 (going on "Rebirth" as the end) didn't really have a 'hard' ending, but more of that '80s style of show doesn't appeal to me today.

    Rather than just extending an existing series, I'd rather expand on the existing story universes. Bring out Transtech or whatever would come after Beast Machines. Make a new series to fit somewhere in the timeline between G1 and BW. Make a spinoff from Animated. Any of those could be good and would probably appeal to me if they aren't terrible.

    Animated. I think this series will be the Firefly of the transformers world. Pure awesomeness, cancelled at its peak when it clearly had so many great stories left to tell.

    i want to say g1, but i doubt they would want to do the work to bridge story lines.

    so i'll say animated, because it was cut way to short, and i loved it.

    This.

    Everything else had its end and nicely enough. Even when not perfect, its done and I wouldn't change it.

    Definitely RID, no contest. Though Animated would be my second choice, as it deserves an overall ending.

    I'm gonna have to say the original series.

    But, I'd like to see the original series redone entirely using all the Classics/Universe characters done in the Animation and Writing Style of G.I. Joe: Resolute

    Animated

    Had the most potential for continuation.

    I...I really, really love Animated. But I would give anything for a few more G1 episodes.

    Season 2 episodes.
