Which has proven itself to be superior in writing and style (referring to designs).

  3. Both are awesome.

    32.7%
  4. Batman. In other words: I DONT GIVE A DAMN

  5. BOTH SUCK. Animated is better.

    No. The Unicron Trilogy is the worst g. The movies would have to be REAAALY bad to even be near the Unicron Triology level.

    When Bayformers Prime goes "SUPER CANNON LASER ATTACK!!!" on me, then you can say they are as bad.

    I disagree.

    One I still don't think of it being a trilogy. I pretend Energon does not exist so their isn't enough ways to tie Armada and Cybertron together.

    Besides Armada and Cybertron on their are not as bad as Bayformers.

    Bayformer and Energon just both suck.

    bayformers have the best designs of the franchise (they look so real since we can see the engines and brakes and all other car stuff in the robot mode)
    primes designs are bayformers + animated

    Transformers Prime superior, movies inferior.

    Transformers Prime has Breakdown, Knock Out, and Airachnid as full fledged characters with lines while the movies just have a bunch of silent Decepticons waiting to get killed by Prime or Bumblebee. Heck Soundwave on Transformers Prime manages to pull off the silent type far better than any of the movie jobber cons.

    Starscream is far more of a scheming backstabbing bastard on the cartoon than in the movie.

    Ratchet can actually fix something on Transformers Prime.

    Arcee is an actual character on Transformers Prime instead of a filler robot like in the movie.

    The Autobots get to face more problems than just the Decepticons as they seemed to be in some real trouble with the scraplets.

    The humans aren't going to come and save the day because Prime is too noble to let the humans get hurt. So it feels like the Autobots really have to dig deep sometimes for the win instead of waiting on the humans to take care of the cons for them.

    Prime hands down. Every other Transformers series is better than the movies, even the Unicron Trilogy (at least that trilogy has better character designs).

    Sorry Movieverse All the way!!! :D  I Love the Movies they Brought me
    to this Franchise I Love the Look and design
    of all of them and all their Personalities :tongue: 

    I Love TF Prime so far
    but for some reason I care More About the Movie Characters
    then the New Characters in TF Prime like, Acree and bulkhead
    I could careless if they died.
    Were as in the movie it was sad when Ironhide died and
    when Q died and I didn't even get to know him,and
    I care more about sam then any of the kids in TF Prime.
    I could carless if any of them died either.
    There seems to be something missing about
    the new Characters in TFPrime I want to say
    it's that their All missing the fun element.
    In the Movies they All seem so Lively I don't know Maybe it's
    just Me But I do Like TF Prime's version of Starscream, Best version
    of him ever! And Like I said I Love TFPrime it's Just I Like
    the Movies Better :thumbs2:

    The movies introduced me to Transformers so i'll always have that biased opinion. But TF: Prime to me is a worthy replacement for now.

    Prime in writing, Movies for style. I voted both.

    Overall which do I prefer? Movies. TFPrime has been very boring with the most recent episode picking up in pace. The movies are anything but boring.

    I like both even right now. Bay's movies are what introduced me to Transformers and I love watching those movies, but I also love watching Transformers Prime very much as well. It's really hard to compare these since one is a movie trilogy and the other is a tv show aimed at children. Granted, Transformers Prime is very dark and I remember seeing quite a few vehicon beheadings in the show. The movies have less robot screen time, but I care for the human characters more than the humans in Prime. In the series, it has more robot screen time, but characters like Miko and Raph.

    Each has it's ups and downs, but I love both. The movies brought me back to Transformers, I love the designs, and the movies made them "real" (and helped decide my fate for what job I'm going to college for - robotics XD). Prime has great characters (including the humans) and story, especially since it continues from TF: Exodus and War for Cybertron. So, I voted accordingly. :)

    I consider Prime to be the definitive version of Transformers.

    I consider the movies to be a thing that existed.

    Transformers Prime for me.
    -I hated Sam. Hated.
    -I prefer the realistic yet stylized look of Prime. Some transformers in the Bay films looked pretty ugly. (Looking at you, Q.)
    -Prime is better written.
    -Characters actually have screen time in Prime.
    -I get excited for new episodes while I never really cared about a new movie.

    Just my take.

    Was kinda expecting for someone to vote for option 5. There has to be some misguided fool out there who will vote that option.
