Surely there is no question as to G1 Prime's superiority. He is after all, a true hero. :)

That is how I shall cast my vote anyhow.

No Primal? Or RID Prime? I detest!

Have to pick 07 Prime because he's a bit more gunho, which is how I like my good guy leaders, and he doesnt say things like "booby" like G1 did :P

Original Prime all the way for me.

He held is own against Megatron, and would have won if not for some young punks meddling.

I got the movie today watched and enjoyed it, then flipped in the G1 movie.

Movie Prime is very lifelike, but G1 Prime has him beat!

Also using that stupid pose to keep promoting Movie Prime realy isn't helping! Hell all it makes me think of is him asking MeatWad "How's that Ol' Happy Time Harry making out?"

The question is "who is better"? Which is very general and because of that I'm on board with everyone else saying that G1 prime is "better" in general. But if the question was a bit more specific, like say, "who is a better bad ass?" Well, then I'd have to say Live Action Prime is a bigger bad ass. G1 Prime on a number of occasions would get his ass handed to him and then was bailed out by something. However, I don't ever remember G1 Prime taking off a Decepticon head with a shiv like he did on the highway in the movie....that was a "bad ass" kinda move.

That's a really hard decision...I guess it's a tie. Now if you wanna ask who the better Bumblebee is...

Who's better? Really hard to make a decision, considering they are, more or less, the same entity, voiced by the same person.

But I can't fight it, G1. Can't argue with the classics, but I prefer Primal myself.

G1 Prime FTW. Mostly it's out of nostalgia for me, but also G1 Prime is (again) the embodiment of the REAL Transformers franchise. In terms of Autobots that is......

Well this must be a half-cocked question...any fan worth their salt knows that G1 prime is better.

I agree here. I will always respect the hell out of G1 Prime, But movie Prime Owned the hell out of Bonecrusher. As far as looks go, G1 Prime is the mac from cybertron. :lol: Hell, I love em both.

Neither one could really handle a true showdown with ole Megs, though...at least live action Prime managed to uh, not die.

Oh, and...

movie Ironhide > G1 Ironhide
G1 Ratchet > movie Ratchet (in aesthetics, not badassery)
movie Bumblebee > G1 Bumblebee times 1000
G1 Jazz > movie Jazz

Very true. But o7 Prime chopped Bonecrusher's arm off and then stabbed him in the face...witch was followed by a ripping decapitation :lol: Thats a hard act to follow just in one scene...(Sorry I have watched the dvd twice today.)

We will always love G1 Prime. But I am a fan of 07 movie Prime. Now, If we could just get a better toy... :lol: (That reminds me, I picked up a TH-2 hybrid convoy from tf source today.)

Yeah, I can't truly side with either Prime. I love em both. The only Prime I don't like is the beast wars/machines prime. I am an old-schooler I guess.

G1 prime would have never let Bumblebee be dragged off by a bunch of Goverment covert ops. That is really the one point in the movie where I wished Bay had actually watched the first G1 season.

And well, in a one on one fight fought without cheating, Prime Always owned Megs, they made Movie Prime badass, but he should held better against old ugly.

So I choose G1 prime
