To this day, I wonder why they went with the Cobra-Lalalala.. battle cry - that thing was hilarious. I'm also fond of the sci-fi/adventure feel of the ARAH cartoons, and I hope that we'll get some representation of that down the line. i can't speak for the Pretenders since I didn't have any, but c'mon Micromasters were awesome! I think the greatest appeal about them for me was that the small toys reflected similar transformations with larger counterparts in G1, plus you could match them up with playsets and bigger robots. One of the lines I wish they still continued was the old Takara WST line. That would have matched up great with the new Titans.
