Which one is the peak of the Transformers franchise, Beast Wars or Animated?

>>94182726
animated then
>>
Neither. Both are higher points than most but I don't think any single TF media can be considered "the best" without giving into nostalgic whims or personal preferences that may not exactly be objective. I will say though, that in my personal opinion pic related is probably the piece of TF media that best captures the spirit of the franchise that all others should take note from, if that counts for anything.

>>94182959
Shut up.
>>
>>94182706
BW. But I liked Animated too.

>>94182959
If you are a twat, you could say that about any series which isn't BW or BM.
>>
>>94182706

>Beast Wars is a sequel and doesn't make any sense on its own; you have to have seen the G1 cartoon

>Animated is a standalone continuity that tells a complete story in and of itself.

Animated wins since you don't have to watch any of the other TF shows to follow the plot. If you've see them, you'll get the homages and in-jokes, but the story can stand on its own.
>>
The fact these 2 are the best shows that the series that do their own thing and move far from the G1 formula/setting are best.
>>
>>94182706

I want to say Beast Wars, but it's continuity sandwiches it between the cheesy/mediocre G1 cartoon and the legit terrible Beast Machines.

Animated is a short and sweet story that isn't tied to any crappy prequel or sequel series. Plus the animation holds up better than Beast Wars, which is quite unsightly to look at even if it was groundbreaking in 1995.
>>
>>94183285
>>Beast Wars is a sequel and doesn't make any sense on its own; you have to have seen the G1 cartoon

Totally false, The G1 cartoon ended years before I was born, and I was able to watch BW perfectly fine using only the context provided within the show. Its like saying you can't watch Star wars episode 4 without watching the prequels.

Hell, a lot of people in my generation think Beast Wars was the ORIGINAL transformers,and the vehicle stuff came after.
>>
>>94183327
I think pretty much every single TF show moved far away from the G1 formula....for better or for worse? That varies from series to series, but they all did their own thing

The anime's had their fucking kiddy anime aka Pokemon/Digimon/Beyblade vibe going on, Prime was dark and moody and closer to Beast Wars comparatively in tone than G1, and the most recent show almost has like a Power Rangers type lighthearted monster of the week vibe from what I've seen of it

Beast Wars was a fun, cheesy cartoon with dark moments. Prime was closer to the movies
>>
>>94183783
Closer to Beast Wars than G1. Beast Wars had a lot of cartoon humor that made it great, but it was still more dramatic and took itself more seriously than G1 was when it wanted to, that and the focus on a smaller cast of bots rather than a never ending revolving door of an ensemble cast are what Prime and BW have in common.

I don't see what Prime has in common with the movies honestly other than the designs obviously being a halfway point between the bay designs and Animated

The peak is probably IDW, honestly. Theres a lot of good stuff in those comics. The art is usually good to great. The stories range from the usual "why the fuck am I reading this?" to "why the fuck isn't EVERYONE reading this!" that comics tend to go through, but on average is better than most mainstream comics these days.

Calm and collected Megatron who takes no shit is a good Megatron, but I prefer crazy sharkteeth Welker Megatron. He's just more entertaining. He makes me happy.

Prime Starscream being the worst Starscream also makes him the best Starscream, if that makes any sense.

Animated Starscream was strong as fuck and he killed Megatron in the fucking first episode. Prime Starscream was everybody's bitch

I'm not the best person on the subject, so I'm hoping Shockwave fans chime in. I'm already regretting replying the first time. Personally, I've found his loyalty in the cartoons to be endearing, and the IDW Shockwave plot was impressive in its own right.

I'm actually pretty partial to Marvel Shockwave, though, who was a great treacherous SIC. He also showed a lot of emotion for someone who wasn't supposed to have any.

As far as intelligent writing, Animated was the last time we had that in a TF cartoon, but I won't deny that Prime and RID2015 are very well animated.

Hopefully Boulder Media has better writers than we have had since Prime.
>>
I grew up with Beast Wars as a kid so it has a special place in my heart. I've rewatched it about a dozen times and I think it's still really well written and has some of the best character development of ANY TF story. Mostly in part to the small cast and lack of any human screen time.

However, TFA will have to be the best for me. It captured my attention in a way no other TF media has in any context. The new characters introduced like Lockdown and Lugnut, the spin on old characters like Prowl who was made actually likeable, and the story which was the most radical one we have had since HE. I really loved how they handled the cultures between the Bots and Cons. Something JRO sorely fucking lacks when writing them. I think there was an understanding that those characters were made to be fucked up, but also to still have their own compassion that didn't need to be hamfistedly made into a bitch fest of woe is me and traitorous redemption arcs with character assassination.

I miss TFA. Every day since it ended.

That was kind of a weird form change under very specific circumstances. He was carrying the original Megatron's spark alongside his own, which as was established from Primal doing the same with Optimus' spark, apparently causes drastic, unpredictable shifts in their forms.

With Primal, he gained jet and tank altmodes and became more technological looking. It's possible something similar might have happened to Megs, but he was blasted into a pool of lava and sank in it before he could really start changing. I guess being damaged, drowning in molten rock, and most likely BURNING with rage at his potential defeat at such a critical moment pushed the transformation away from his robot mode having priority and onto his beast mode. So the tyrannosaurus mutates into a dragon.

It doesn't actually make a lot of sense, and is mostly just there to look cool. If you really want a serious explanation, it basically boils down to "don't fuck around with the physical embodiment of your soul".

I feel like if Animated didn't have such a shit artstyle it would be universally loved. It took an interesting spin on the lore with it being after the Great War and dealing with the post war issues, not to mention the great characters and dark subject matter.

It also has the best Megatron since he truly believes that he's the good guy and is fighting to free the Decepticons from Autobot oppression.

That last part is kinda the Megatrons after Animated. TFP Megs fights against tyranny and becomes a tyrant, IDW Megs same, Movie Megs fights for his planet against what he believes are race traitor autobots.

Prime Megatron is shit. He shows up way to much which makes him a jobber and you can't take him seriously.

In Animated Megatron was hiding in the shadows for the majority of the series so when he finally got his body back you knew it was a big deal. Then you see that it is a big deal when he immediately kicks all the Autobots' asses. Even after that he doesn't fight that much until the final few episodes which makes it feel like a big deal.

>>94214011
Animated did a good job of adding grey morality to the Autobot vs Decepticon conflict. There's stuff like how the Autobots used living weapons of mass destruction to end the war and the fact that they kept Decepticon prisoners in what sound like Concentration Camps which are apparently bad enough to drive an innocent Autobot insane..

In most TF media Megatron is the primary antagonist, so yes, he usually shows up all the damn time since he's the main guy to fight, and yes he usually loses because it's for kids and good always beats evil

I'm not against your initial statement. Though I like Animated, human villains should always be more of a side thing for TFs

But let's not pretend humans haven't always been a part of Transformers, there were only two shows that didn't have humans and that's only because those shows took place before humans existed

G1 kinda? I mean ghost nonsense, Galvatron/Megatron issue and Unicron giving him a body but whatever
>>
>>94182706
G1 is the peak like it or not, it was when the series was a cultural phenomenon and where every other series borrows from. As from between Animated and BW, I would say BW if only due to animated sadly coming at the same time when the live action film franchise started. Like it or not the films eclipsed the series. I consider both pretty solid.

It's not that Animated is big, BW is small, the bots in Beast Wars are from the distant future of G1 where Transformers have taken on much smaller bodies

It never really dawned on me until now, but was that BW Megatron voicing Shockwave

No

But David Kaye DID have a cameo in Prime

He was that Insecticon that Miko killed

There was some serious pining going on for Megatron in the prime decepticon ranks.

Are you implying that Starscream is not fem at heart?

In all seriousness they're no way you'd get away with the typical Megatron/Starscream dynamic if SS was a fembot.
>>
>>94253520
pretty sure the only thing starscream would willingly fuck is one of his clones but there's nothing wrong with a little force
>>
>>94247770
I want a Starscream that starts off like G1, then character develops into this.
>>
>>94253595
>they's no way you'd get away with the typical Megatron/Starscream dynamic if SS was a fembot.
It rustles me, but it's true. If SS was a fembot and Megatron was beating on her, it would definitely be shown in a way meant to evoke sympathy from the audience, and probably imply somewhere she didn't really deserve it .

Whereas something like Starscream getting kicked around in Prime or G1 is seen as a justified enforcement of the saying
>Act like a bitch, get treated like a bitch
>>
>>94254069
to be fair primescream did a lot of bad shit and got punished but also gotten beaten for no reason
It sucked seeing him go from a guy who skewered cliffjumper and had reasonable control over the decepticons to some whimpering fuck
>>
>>94253595
Armada SS was a true man
>>
>>94182706
Beast Wars, easily.

Though I felt Animated had some interesting interpretations of characters. I like that Shockwave was a secret agent for Megatron, I like Blitzkreig and Lugnut. I thought Megatron tricking people into rebuilding him was cool, especially with how strong he was when he came back. But it had a weak over stroy and weak characters.
>>
>>94254263
Prime's problem was that it started with a badass Starscream and then didn't know how to develop him, so they just regressed instead.
>>
>>94250493
No, it's Depth charge
>>
>>94182706
Beast Wars. Animated wasn't all that great, though it had its moments.
>>
>>94256486
Characters don't always have to get better/more powerful as time goes on, Starscream made bad choices time and time again and dealt with the unpleasant consequences, because that's what happens when you are a coward who constantly betrays people and tries to play "lookout for number one" in a war with two clearly defined sides

Sure, it might suck if Screamer is your waifu, but I never understood people like that anyway, Starscream has no admirable qualities
>>
>>94187747
Definitely best Megatron. Everything about him was an amalgamation of all the others into the best version.
>>
>>94257130
Yeah. Prime-scream was a scheming coward from the start. He offed Cliftjumper when the latter was injured, unprepared and defenseless. He's constantly shown to be the lowest of the lowest in terms of morality. He deserved everything he got.

Animated doesn't come off as pathetic because he isn't actively Megatron's second in command, so he doesn't get bitch slapped around as much,
>>
>>94257566
>Animated doesn't come off as pathetic because he isn't actively Megatron's second in command, so he doesn't get bitch slapped around as much,
That and he isn't shown to be as obviously afraid of Megatron. He doesn't turn all "muh master" or begs and whines in front of him. But animated Megatron also doesn't seem like the kind of Megatron to throw a screaming rage tantrum and kick you half to death for being too cheeky.

Not so sure with Prime-megs. He had some serious anger issues. Animated was reasonable with his subordinates as long as they weren't directly trying to backstab him. Prime-Megatron started treating Knockout like shit as soon as Starscream left.
>>
>>94257130
Armada Starscream had good qualities
>>
>>94257130
No but ideally a character should get more fleshed out or at least remain interesting.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not suggesting redemption, but it's possible for villainous characters to change while still remaining evil. And yes, that includes becoming worse.

Maybe if Starscream had been even more powerful in the beginning and then basically had a series long breakdown, but like >>94257566 said, he wasn't really that far up the scale.
Maybe if he lost his sophisticated airs and the likes and becoming more savage, that could have been interesting.

But Prime!Screamer became more of a joke. He didn't change as much as he lost aspects of his personality, and that doesn't really make for a satisfying arc.
>>

Anime Animated is TIGHT as FUCK

He's determined.
>>
>>94244370
Cool
>>
>>94258757
No the Prime one
>>
>>94260311
Sure he was. Later he just became less deluded and realized being a respected leader was never going to happen, so he became determined to stay loyal to Megatron instead. Which he, surprisingly, did keep up with.
>>
You know, Prime gets a lot of shit because of its writing and rushed ending, but think about this

Megatron saw the error of his ways and retired from tyranny, for good. Optimus Prime sacrificed his own life for the greater good. It wasn't all great, but it had some epic stuff like that in its conclusion

I haven't seen much RiD so I don't know how the whole ghost Prime thing played out, but from what I've seen of that show you may as well consider it it's own series as much as the games are
>>
>>94243107
its VERY childrens anime if that makes any sense, you need to be in the mindset for it. very episodic, goofy, non-serious, but has some cool moments. only beast wars 2 is subbed right now
>>
>>94224834
heard for idw, all hail megatron is a good starting point. would you recommend starting from there?

Animated characters were easily stronger than the BW ones

Prime Starscream is pretty much the only Scream who is afraid of Megatron. Actually, Prime Scream is afraid of everyone: his "comrades", the autobots and even the humans.

G1 Starscream gets down on his knees and begs pathetically several times/is often beat up by other decepticons. He was just (like everyone in G1) a bit of a retard and made no attempts whatsoever to hide his treachery.

No wonder RiD2015 Starscream was pissed at him, I'd be too if my boss pulled that.

Truly TFA Bumblebee is the strongest of bees. I'm honestly surprised there's more Shockblurr than there are bee pairings, Shockblurr's garbage.

>>94267656
Its ear-play or audial-play in robo terms. I think its fucking cute when people give bee the whole "his horns are sensitive" treatment.

>>94267782
what are you, fucking straight?
>>
>>94263538
Oh dear god, fuck no. All Hail Megatron was a fucking mess, and if you're going to start that early into IDW you might as well start from the beginning, which is what I'd suggest anyway.

Animated because Megatron.

Not with that Dinobot. Slim him down, give Tigertron his body.

Could anyone storytime Revolutionaries # 6?

>>94253940
The closest one that managed that might be Marvel Starscream. He regressed after Megatron forced Ratchet to bring him back, though.
>>
I only watched Armada, Energon and Bayformers, but I see a lot of cool looking shit from IDW. Any reading guide/chart to help me out pls?
