  1. Prime > Beast Wars.

    Original series G1 and Prime are equal winners surely. I’d pick G1 over Prime simply because it was the genesis, and is still fun to watch today. Prime was the first time since G1 that I was actually drawn in to the characters and story. Beast Wars was great because it wasn’t campy bullshit.

  2. Just recently rewatched *all* of the Transformers shows, with the exception of Rescue Bots.

    I agree with most commenters, PRIME should have been 1st place.
    Transformers 1984, 2nd.
    And Animated 2007 3rd… Or Robots in Disguise 2015.

    All four of the above mentioned, are highly re-watchable and entertaining, even as an adult, and Prime has great humor and fantastic visuals, beside having some of the best flashed out characters ever!

    Beast Wars, though a great show, should never have been first.

    Energon and Cybetron should not be on this list at all, and Armada should have been lower in the rankings (great bots, awesome Starscream, horrible writing, mind-numbingly boring to watch).

    But since this list also takes your personal preferences into consideration, I guess: “each to their own”. 🙂

  3. Haven’t really seen any of these series except the ones I watched as a kid on Foxtel (Australian Cable TV), Transformers in disguise and Armada were the ones I watched as a kid (Born 97), I remember when Megatron and Starstream (I forget names lol) combined or when they were fighting on Unicron, tidelwave also, I should probably watch some of the other stuff also, but Transformers was my childhood from about 5 to 10, absolutely love it, also enjoyed the new Michael Bay movies, well at least the first 3 lol

  4. lol , hard core fans know G1 , Beast Wars, Armada , Prime.

    My personal, G1 , Prime , Armada , Beast wars.
