Default Re: The official G1 purist thread.

I gotta disagree with Chibi, while I love G1 cartoon, and admit it had many good episodes. It was, in effect, a massive toy commercial.

The cartoon is memorable because it had great characters and a derivative premise (written for the comics). But it often had little plot development, no rhyme or reason for characters coming and going, poor dialogue and animation and sometimes became very very redundant.

The comic tended to use characters and let them be characters, not characters selling toys. Certain popular items, like Metroplex, never played much of a role. And often the storyline would write out certain characters and play up often obscure ones in there absence.
