    I, like many others on these forums, am a child of the 80's. I love the G1, I have a lot of the classics updates. I think a lot of people however down the original series, but I believe it still stands up a LOT better than GI joe, at least in story. MOTUC still holds up better in animation, but I felt that at least Transformers had story progression.

    I don't think people are exactly down on it more don't hold it in his high esteem to those who are a bit more irrational about it.

    For example my first reaction to when I saw the thread title was, Transformers still exists. But I figured it was more about the original show ended 25 years ago.

    Well, the last Transformers episode wasn't in November 1987. The G1 series still continued in Japan for 3 more seasons.

    And despite my nostalgia for the US series which I grew up with, I have to say that I enjoy the Japanese series far more. Finally getting to see the continuation of the G1 Transformers cartoon was like having a second childhood for me.

    I'm the opposite, F-Deuce. While it's cool for me to see the Japanese series and more of the Decepticons in particular, I'll always love the original G1 series. A good cartoon with some really great episodes that continue to inspire various incarnations and reinterpretations for newer generations while other cartoons have been left by the wayside.

    I liked the Japanese series but some I found to be kinda strange, like Victory. Did anyone else think Star Saber looked a little like a Gundam? My favorite Japanese "series" continues to be Scramble City, but that's probably due to the fact that it bridges season 2 of G1 to the Movie. Plus the animation is pretty much the same.

    Are you referring to G1 or just Transformers in general?
