The Transformers were launched in 1984 when Hasbro bought the rights to the Japanese toy lines Diaclone and Microchange. While Gobots were first to market and were a big hit in the summer, by Christmas Transformers were far bigger. The unending war between the heroic Autobots lead by Optimus Prime and the evil Decepticons lead by Megatron captured the imaginations of children all over the world.
The two warring factions from the planet Cybertron had crash landed on Earth with their spaceship mistaking vehicles as being the main life form on Earth, it rebuilt the giant robots into Earth vehicles so they could hide amongst us. While the Autobots mainly were cars and trucks, the Decepticons were guns, jets and vehicles designed for war.
The Transformers were so popular that the 4 issue mini series of comics ran for 80 monthly issues and the cartoon lead to a full length animated movie with heavy metal soundtrack. The Transformer movie moved the action forward to the year 2005 and saw many popular characters, including Optimus Prime and Megatron, killed off to make way for new heroes like Hot Rod, Rodimus Prime, Blurr, Kup and Ultra Magnus fighting against new evil enemies like Galvatron, Scourge and Cyclonus.
When the Transformers toy line started winding down in the early 90's, the toys became animals instead of vehicles and Beast Wars was born! The new cartoon with it's slick (for the time) graphics created a new audience and kept interest in the toys. Since then Transformers toys have continued to transform with Beast Machines, Car Robots 2000, Robots in Disguise, Armada, Energon, Animated, Classics, Universe, Generations, Titans Return, Power of the Primes, War for Cybertron: Siege, Masterpiece and many other lines.
