That made me laugh so much! Can't wait to see what my son thinks of G1. I was also wondering today what he'd make of The Fly (Cronenberg version - the Hammer one is surely hilarious to all)...

I do like the look of disappointment amongst the kids when they find out Transformers is yet another 'recycled' property shoring up the box office...

..also, I absolutely LOVE how silly they find the old Sunbow character models. I bet there's some staunch Geewunners of the 'Michael Bay raped my childhood' up in arms somewhere about this.

Was there ever a version of Optimus that didn't have a gun?

The old character models look like they were from the comic, not the TV show. The kids seemed to think that old Megatron looked more like a hero than old Optimus.

I was looking for a Beast Wars react to see if any of the kids complained about Optimus being a monkey, and found extra footage (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Jpd3ZSQQ_I). I wonder if they saw anything besides the theme song.

Can you blame them? G1 megs had a hell of a tendancy to diva pose and flaunt his form even if he was alone.

Usually the Fine Bros will show you what they show the 'react'ers, so I believe they only saw the intro.

This ruined my morning
i Wanna punch most of them in their faces right now
why are they showing so many girls transformers?

You see, folks? This is why I don't like the internet. I want to laugh at the misogyny and overreaction but it just makes me sad when I realise these are real people thinking these thoughts.

EDIT: Why did you show me this website? (http://****notfw2005.tumblr.com/) I was living in a happy little world where the only Transformers fans were the lovely people on here. Now I'm scrolling down that tumblr like a car slowly rolling past an accident trying to get a good look at the horror and misery.

Not sure whether the content or the passive aggressive fridge note concept is more depressing.

Video -- some of the reactions seem more than a bit prompted.

I haven't seen many of these videos, but I really enjoyed the one where old people reacted to the latest Mortal Kombat. That seemed a good use of this concept.

Yeah, you always get that with these "reacts" videos. Most of the time I can't be dealing with them, but kids and old people tend to give you a few genuine reactions.

One thing's for sure, their reaction to the original TMNT was a lot more positive.

Pretty sure the catchy as hell opening helped that

That much is certain. As much as I like the G1 cartoon, the theme is, quite frankly, shit - especially compared to pretty much every other 80's cartoon. Thundercats or MASK it ain't.

Except for season 3. I like that version.
