    Beastformers have better, more versatile alt-modes than vehicle-formers.

    And how closely did GIJoe Extreme follow the premise of the original? Not closely at all, it was practically a different show from the ground up. Put up the fact that the whole "extreme" thing was dying down, along with every show that was like that, and your point is hardly conclusive.

    Why is it that any time someone who likes G1 and doesn't like BW gets this shit shoved their way where they revere the Sunbow cartoon like a deity? I don't worship G1, I can see its faults. Can you see the faults in your precious Beast Wars? Because I know G1 had shitty as hell episodes such as War Dawn, The Key to Vector Sigma, Dark Awakening to name just a few as compared to stellar episodes of pure dramatic genius as The Low Road, that Emmy-nominated episode where Rhinox farts the Predacons out of the base, I'm sure if I put my mind to it, I can think of more, but I try not to think about that series unless it's absolutely necessary.

    This is why I didn't mention RID. I don't think RID would have had the draw as a series to revive interest. Guess that point could go under the GIJoe Extreme point as well. I also believe that if Hasbro had indeed had a cartoon to go with the new mold G2 toys, they would have sold like hotcakes.

    You're making a claim that can never be proven. There's no way to know if Armada would've revived the franchise, because the simple fact of the matter is- Beast Wars happened. It was in the right time and right place. You can argue all you like, that Armada would've saved the franchise at that point, but we'll never know. And stating your claim as a matter of fact doesn't in any way make it true, because there's no way to refute it.

    This.

    Speaking of Beast Wars and getting back on topic, the first season is my favorite season of the Beast Wars series.

    I find Hasbro's revelation that The Fallen was once "Megatronus Prime." I also hate that in his original form he has a Megatron-y arm cannon and a Decepticon badge shaped head. It's way to on the nose.

    If The Fallen HAD to have had a name I would have liked them to have made him Liege Maximo.

    I find G1 Megatrons voice,extremely annoying.
    I like G1 season 3 more than season 1,2 and the movie.
    I love Transformers Primes writing.
    I found WFC campaign extremely boring.
    I did not like Rat trap
    I like the Combaticons(Bruticus) more than the Constructicons(Demolisher)
    I hate G1 starscream
    I found the constant animation errors in G1 quite funny

    That's all I can think of

    I think that the concept of galvatron in any continuity, be it in the Unicron trilogy, g1, RID, or any show/comic I can't think of off the tip of my tounge, is the dumbest concept ever, and in most cases ends up just being a plot device that makes no difference in the series

    I hated Animated and am currently hating Prime, with the exception of the 1st two episodes(ZOMBIE!!!) and the Orion Pax story.

    I think WFC was better than FOC, and the Armada game was better than both.

    I have, and as well-written as they are, they still haven't pulled off something as amazing as Code of Hero yet.

    Actually, I take that back - they actually did a version of the Primus myth that was actually really damn cool in the annual!

    I don't like the live action movies very much. :O

    Not a fan of the minicon gimmick, especially when it means the main toy will be covered in minicon pegs and have weapons and gimmicks only accessible through the use of minicons. This applies to planet keys too as well as them leaving giant unsightly planet plugs on the toy.

    The keys and minicons themselves are a'ight.

    I think Optimus Prime should always have the faceplate. It adds a sort of age and authority to him. Younger primes can pull it off, like in Animated but older Primes need it IMO.

    Beast Wars isn't a good series.

    Beast Machines is the best written TF cartoon. I also think it's a good sequel to BW.

    I think there should explore the biological dynamics of transformers further such as transformer romance.

    I don’t think DOTM Laserbeak is awesome, he’s just a Movie version of Buzzsaw who could speak and had more alternate modes than he deserved (and some didn't even fit him properly).

    I think that ROTF Devastator was a fantastic combiner, sans the wrecking balls of course.
