    >Lockdown was based on wanting a version of Death’s Head that Hasbro could own.

    Heh.  That makes so much sense.

    I love Animated but really hated their stance on flying Autobots. Was there ever a good reason for this? It just makes the cast less diverse and more samey if they're all ground vehicles

    Animated was solid as was but if I could ask for any one thing for it? Constructicon figures! Because come on! They were more relevant and likeable then many who did get figures!

    I can get why some don't like Beachcomber, he's an annoying peacenik hippy, but he was also one of my first toys as a kid, so I also can't help but feel a twinge of resentment for vindictively wanting to kill him off just because.

    I want to say their reasoning was that the Decepticons were more of a military faction, while the Autobots were just the regular working class (Prime being a "fireman," etc.). Or something along those lines.
    Personally, I always thought it was an interesting take on Cybertronian society, but to each their own.

    I would have liked to see Megatron descend into madness.  Particularly since this verson was so collected and focused.

    Uhm swoop, aerialbots, I think whirl is his name, jetfire, omega surpream, springer, what’s her name new female autobot transforms into jet, I know I’m forgetting more these are g1 bits I’m naming off except for female autobot jet

    This cartoon series did over use comedy in episodes someone calling bumblebee zippy, ratchet being grumpy old grandfather complain about everything, I left out sex jokes that wasn’t said a lot where do baby’s come from, siri explain to prime where baby’s come from,

    Dear Hasbro, I will pay whatever you charge if you put Animated Season 4 on a streaming service of your design and the toys if you relaunch the whole line with new figures. Signed, a massive Animated Fanboy.

    Comic and Marauder Megatron figure, please! I really hope some third party company will step up and make the latter happen.

    And yeah, Masterpiece Animated. Imagine how great Shockwave would be.

    Well, yeah. I mean the replaceable arm weapons, the poncho, the working for the highest bidder but keeping his word attitude... It was never any doubt that Lockdown was based on Death\'s Head. Even his face is similar, sans horns.
    Why does everyone want to kill Beachcomber? As he would say, \'Not cool, man! Extremely not cool!\' :D 
    No word on the Constructicon episode? Who would have been the other new characters forming Devastator with the old ones?
