There are some fans who didn't care for the Pretenders but personally, I think
they rock! Their robot/vehicle modes look very Cybertronian. AND if you're looking
for a "missing link" in the evolution of TF's from the all techno- characters of
G1 to the partially organic characters of Beast Wars, look no further! Pretenders
were the first TF's to incorporate an organic element into the bodies. The idea was

'pre-Beast Wars' concept if you ask me!
