I like them both :3
Got my copies of Transformers G1and Beast Machines DvDs as well as a couple other TF related media. Though be warned, I may import a few aspects of other franchises, just to keep this storyline interesting.
Considering all the re-imaginings over the years, and the kinda sslapdash canon of G1, I feel this shouldn't detract too much of TF lore. just add to it in our own little timeline
Need to sort some non-related things out this end, but I should be able to get the RP thread started within the next couple days.
