Go wash your mouth out. I am not even going to react to this in a serious manner.

i'm 31. i had a few AM as a small kid. I had no series 1 AF. I was 5 when series 2 debuted. I had :sas: and :zforce: as they were 'real soldiers'. for some reason as a kid, i thought i shouldn't own the bad guys and never had any of tinhead's mob. my only knowledge of them came from 'The Baron's Revenge' tape.

some how, i missed series 3. i vaguely recall seeing a Roboskull in :cobra: packaging and an :af: Skystriker in a shop once, but that's it.

I then got into G1 Transformers. When they ran the Joe story as an introduction to the 'new' Hasbro AF, i was excited and started buying the AF weekly. I then started getting a few of the figures and toys, but i was still more into Transformers.

I did wind up with a few Cobras, of course, but not as many as i had Joes...

well for me i love both, i'm old enough to of had palitoy as a child but young enough to of collected the hasbro range so they hold equal pleasure i wouldn't say either were better simply because they have entirely different backgrounds, i would agree with previous posts that it is all down to your age,

Nothing. "Go wash your mouth out" is one of my favourite new member greetings!

I also have to agree that it is down to age. I am 34 and I got my 1st Series Para when I was 6. From then on I was hooked. I did like the Hasbro stuff when it came out, but the more unrealistic it became the less interested I got. I mean is it just me or is alot of the Hasbro stuff incredibly camp. Some of the moustaches and uniforms/outfits make them look like village people rejects. I think everyone is aware of my opinion of the incredibly camp Drednoks.

Yeah, because a skintight yellow bodysuit with a giant letter Q on your forehad isn't remotely gay...
