More than meets the eye.
I love the Transformers. I’ve been obsessed with them since I first got my hands on Starscream when I was around 6. Unfortunately, my first Transformer was a Decepticon. I digress.
The theme of the Transformers in my opinion was to never give up. Think about it. If any of you have seen an episode of the Transformers (not including the recent films), then you know that the main goal for the Transfomers to get back to Cybertron and defeat Megatron and the Decepticons. Optimus Prime and the Autobots had setback after setback yet they kept innovating and moving forward. I believe that is a part of the reason I became so enthralled with Optimus Prime and the Autobots. They did not give up.
I noticed that the shows and movies I gravitate towards reflect me in some way or another. What the Transformers represents for me is perseverance. Whenever they fell, the Autobots dusted themselves off and tried again differently.
Transform and roll out!
