The premise of G1, seasons 1 & 2 and their associated toys was perfect. Hasbro did a great job re-inventing what many considered mediocre toylines (Diaclone/Microman). The idea that everyday objects and vehicles could become sentient and unique lifeforms was great! Alternators & Binaltech took a great concept and made it even better. Beast Wars and Beast Machines had a great storyline. Without the shows, I doubt the toys would be as highly regarded. Everything else consists of Fisher Price inspired toys and poorly written thoughtless, mindless animated crap...which I collect obsessively and store MISB.
