Before I unleash the potential for a flame war I have to say these are my opinions and I’m not forcing them one anyone else. I was initially apprehensive of animated as I thought it looked too much like Teen Titans. However, once I saw the toy prototypes I was hooked. I was impressed that Hasbro/Takara had managed to achieve such faithful recreations of the character art into toy form. I think for accuracy to the cartoon Animated has to be the best. I am a relatively young Transformers fan and I wasn't around for 'Gee Wun'. I didn't like Beast Wars and the only series I really watched was Armada. I didn't enjoy Energon and I never watched Cybertron. The movie flung me back to the fandom and Animated looks like it will keep my interest till the next movie. This may be a line I collect in full, not just the occasional Transformers Goods: I like the Autobots. Good characters and nice reversal of chain of command. I like the Decepticons. Powerful, with all the voices being spot on, and showing how they are significantly more powerful than the repair Autobots. I like the character designs, and I don't mind the chins. I think it’s an interesting new aesthetic to the Transformers look. I like the faceplates! I like Starscream and how he has become more ambitious and is now willing to kill his leader himself to secure leadership, not just throw him of Astrotrain. I like the G1 nods, which work to keep the fans happy and recreate the franchise for new fans. I like the way Decepticons present a real threat and how it takes all of the Autobots to take down one. I like the constant stream of G1 characters, with the Dinobots, Magnus, Jazz, Arcee and a whole lot more set to make appearances. Bads: Sari. Human side kicks always annoy me. I think the Professor looks weird. THE FACT THE TOYLINE IS COMING OUT MONTHS AFTER THE CARTOON HAS AIRED As I said at the start I don't want to offend any one, I'm just putting my opinion out their. Feel free to disagree with my views by any means. Just don't go off on a rant. It's grown tiring now. Just save your rants for the next Transformers Movie. I'm sure lots of people will find something wrong with it and, yet again I will be too busy not caring to take any notice. I'm just here to enjoy the franchise, not insult it. Unless something goes really wrong. Then I shall become a hypocrite.
