Default Re: best transformers series

The answer is without a doubt Beast Wars, the best of Transformers and the prime example of how they should be treated. They got me into the world of transformers. I tried getting into G1 but couldn't cause they were too repetitive about 80% of the time and sort of dry, that's a fact. After Beast Wars, its Beast Machines for me. I don't know why many don't like them, but it was a neat idea to see that Transformers are not impervious to evolution, and technorganic seemed like a next logical step in their evolution, plus the story was much deeper than Beast Wars. I mean it was really hard to call Megatron an enemy in that one, since he was fighting for Cybertron's technological side, the only reason to stop him was to prevent him for taking total control. Just to add to Beast Wars/ Machines bit, I think they both gave us the best Megatron ever, always one step ahead of everyone and smart with classy personality. The only thing I didn't like about them were that the character personalities were somewhat inconsistent with what was established in Beast Wars. After that I like the new animated ones.

The main aspect of Beast Wars/ Machines which makes them unique was the fact that they were more concentrated on Transformers themselves and their conflict, no silly involvement of humans:- which really is the only annoying bit about new transformers too. Why couldn't they just concentrate on Bots for once rather than to always have a human presence (especially kids that always seem to interfere with Autobots' missions and priorities), not like I'm against my own race but Beast Wars accomplished it, though it had human presence but it wasn't elaborate. I really wish the next Transformer series would tell the story of how Maximals came to be: the inevitable "Great Upgrade".
