for the feedback & TF search tips.
Regarding TF, I'm almost exclusively a G1 fan, having grown up in the 80's with the original cartoon & Marvel comic book series.
I like G2, & need to learn more about BW/BM, which were a satellite or tangent of G1.
I saw that BW episode with Starscream's ghost recently on YouTube & loved it.
You're right about TF:Animated's animation. There's something wrong about it for TF, almost a Flintstones look, totally inappropriate for TF.
TF:A's TFs look almost like “sarcastic” caricatures of the TFs from the G1 cartoon & comic book.
The non-TF:A TF toys are a better lot overall.
And as for those Bayformers?
They & Chia Pet LeBeef or whatever his name is who played a poor man's Buster/Spike Witwicky can go join Drexel's Class.
