    At this point in time, I think it's utterly pointless to want everything to be like the older version, considering how how many older versions there are to chose from. Transformers has been getting completely re-imagined since Beast Wars, back in the 90s. If you're gonna make TF like a previous version, which do you chose? Most of the newer takes are better than the original, something that a lot of Geewunners like to ignore, because they want everything to be like their childhood. It's that kind of entitlement, their feeling that all other versions of the brand should be pushed aside for theirs, that makes fans of other parts of the franchise resent G1 fans. The argument that "G1 should be held above all else because without it, there wouldn't be any others" is a crap argument. Sure, G1 started Transformers, but the franchise would be long dead if it weren't for BW and G1 fans wouldn't have nearly as much stuff if the movies hadn't made the franchise so profitable. In fact, every version of TF has kept the franchise alive a little longer. The idea of G1 being more important because it was first is plain stupid.

    First of all I'll acknowledge that you said 'a lot of Geewunners', rather than all.. So I guess I'm excluded in this slightly

    I HATE all of the newer takes on Transformers. That isn't JUST because of my childhood, but because I hate the designs, animation, and most of all - the scripts. I just don't like them. You thinking they are better is your opinion, and not shared by everyone. Don't get me wrong - there are things I hate about G1 too!

    HOWEVER - I don't want the films to be like G1. I think it would be pointless. When you have THAT much source material, and generations of people who like them for different reasons, choosing just one would be pointless and limiting. The movies should always be inspired by the cartoons and comics, and not follow their story ARC too closely.

    Personally, I'm happy with the movies being completely their own thing. I don't always like them, but I'd rather them do something new. They can't just cater for a certain group of people, and that includes Transformers Fans! These movies are made to rake in a LOT of money, and not just cater for us.

    Even if you don't like them, the newer stories, for the most part, are objectively better. More fleshed out character, more consistent continuity, stronger story lines, less messy animation, etc. If you don't enjoy them, that's fine, heck, even I enjoy G1 more than some of them, but they are objectively better. I am glad, however, that you agree the movies don't need to have major influence from previous fiction.
