Keep giving G1 the love with MP and Classics, but keep the main line moving forward as new generations come (and old generations, like mine get sick of seeing Optimus and Bumblebee vs Megatron and Starscream reinvented yet again for the 1000th time).
I respectfully disagree. If people got 'bored of the same franchise being reinvented over and over', then NO one would ever watch another Batman movie or TV show ever again. I don't hear anybody saying, 'Oh gee, Nolan put Batman against the Joker - I'm not going to go see it because Adam West and Ceaser Romero already did that'.
Fact is, reboots make truckloads of cash and are successful because people like them.
And like Hasbro is going to pass up a chance to reboot the Tformers again and make us buy yet another gazillion different bumblebee repaints? They may let it lie for a while, but they'll be back. There are tons of different Optimus figures they'll want to make.
