OK War Within and War for Cybertron both have G1 style Transformers with Cybertronian alt modes. My question is that while comparing these characters to their G1 Counterparts, which version of the characters look like they could actually be the Cybertronian versions of the G1 characters. The ones I've seen so far are... Optimus Prime: While I prefer the vehicle more of War Within Prime I don't think the robot mode matches up to G1 Prime like the War for Cybertron version. Bumblebee: This is a hard choice because the vehicle mode of War Within Bumblebee is based off of the vehicle mode seen in the pilot of the series but while looking at the robot modes I think War for Cybertron does a better job of matching the bulk of the original character. Over all though I still think the vehicle mode should be more like what was seen in the cartoon so I'm going to say War Within wins this one. Ratchet/Ironhide: I'll do these as one because they originally shared the same mold. The War Within versions seem to be based on their toy designs which were horrible and looked nothing like the cartoon so War for Cybertron wins by default. Sideswipe: I can't find pictures of either of their vehicle modes but on robot modes, War for Cybertron looks more like the G1 character even down to the tires on his shoulders however I'm not sure I even like the idea of tires on cybertronian vehicles. I'm going to call this one a tie. Jetfire: I think War for Cybertron wins this one. I don't know where his cockpit ends up or what his vehicle mode even looks like but the War Within version doesn't even transform like Jetfire and the vehicle mode makes him look like Cyclonus. Jazz: War Within's vehicle mode is based off what we saw in the cartoon and I can't find a picture of the vehicle mode for War for Cybertron Jazz so just based of robot modes I'd say War for Cybertron wins. (If you can show me a pic of the vehicle mode for War for Cybertron Jazz I might change my opinion.) Omega Supreme: They both look good but just based on coloring, War Within wins. I actually like War for Cybertron design more but he'd be more like the G1 version if the coloring was better. Megatron: War Within wins hands down. The vehicle and robot modes are perfect for what G1 Megatron could have been. Soundwave: Though I like the War for Cybertron version I think War Within looks more like the original character. Rumble/Frenzy: The War for Cybertron versions are nice redesigns but War Within look more like the G1 versions. Laserbeak: Again, I like the War Cybertron version, or what I seen of it, but War Within looks like the Cybertronian Laserbeak we saw in the pilot of G1. Starscream: Now I seen some footage of him in game and it looks like he has two different vehicle modes, one that looks more like what we saw in the cartoon than the other. However I think based off the robot modes War Within looks more like the G1 character. (and though not really compeating, Cybertron seems to be based of the War Within version of himself.) The finnal score for me is... War Within: 8 War for Cybertron: 6 And just so there's no confusion, I'm not saying these are all ment to be the G1 counterparts, this is just for fun. All you're doing is judging the Cybertronian designs based on which one you think looks more like their G1 counterpart. Some of these are tough calls for me because they're both good in some ways. Oh and I didn't bother judging characters who either never had Cybertronian modes in the cartoon because they were originally built as Earth vehicles like the Airalbots, or built on Earth like the Dinobots and Combaticons. And I didn't look at characters who never even had Earth modes like Shockwave because this is kind of to guess what the G1 characters would of looked like on Cybertron and what's the fun of looking at characters who never changed from Cybertronian to Earth alt modes?
