And the magic only increased as more series came along to enhance the richness of the lore to make it what it is today.

What about those who DID grow up on G1 in the 80's but prefer later series more? They could be tired of hearing for other reasons.

a hardcore fan and yet I was born in the 90's. One does not have to have been there from the beginning to be a hardcore fan.

Opinion, not fact.

Matrix may in fact be giving him wisdom of alternatives
to fighting? It's not a weapon of war. It is a symbol of leadership. And sometimes the best leader is the one who chooses not
to fight. Diplomacy and reasoning can at times be the more powerful act than killing and murdering.

This isn't about the toys. Why bring this up again?

And, not everything that worked back then works now. A LOT of G1 is very dated. What was good for the 80s may very well not be fit for the present. Some of what was magical back then has really lost its luster over time. Don't let nostalgia keep you from seeing quality and effort (or a lack therof). G1 was good for its time, but it does not fully hold up 100%.
