I've wanted to make this thread for a while. RiD may have been where I got into the fandom, but the UT is where I cut my teeth. And I don't know... while it certainly had its flaws (its many, MANY flaws), I think there's still plenty of good to be said about it.
So yeah, this is a feel good thread. I'm not a moderator, but I'd like it if we could keep this thread mostly positive. I certainly welcome debate, but... well, the areas where the UT failed are certainly well established, and I think for this one, it'd be best if we kept it light, you know?
So... what were things you liked about the UT? What did you think it did well?
Personally, my favorite lasting addition will always be the Mini-Cons. I know the comic characterizations for them are more popular, but I generally prefer the cartoon origin. I dunno why, but I think the idea of the Mini-Cons being a third pillar of Cybertronian culture who came from UNICRON rather than Primus, and because of an act of kindness, they chose their own destiny. There's something kind of inspiring about that, I think?
Anyway, I look forward to your thoughts.
