Since 2006 Hasbro produced Transformers based on beloved Generation 1 characters using modern toy designs in lines such as Classics, Universe, Generations, Reveal the Shield, Transformers 2010 etc. These toys have proven highly popular with fan collectors, however in recent years Hasbro has significantly declined in manufacturing and selling such toys.

What are your top 5 Official Transformer figures of 2012? I felt the year was pretty disappointing for new figures outside of the masterpiece line. Help us share and discuss the best toys of 2012 by leaving a comment listing your top 5 official Transformers released in 2012.
Its a mean old world, I know you know what I am talking about. Today is the day we vote for the rulers who are supposed to deliver us from tyranny and make freedom the right (or left) of all sentient beings. Whatever your position, get out there and vote for your faction like your spark depended on it! Check out the poll we have asking you to choose the Transformer character you would vote for President, now after the jump.
Me, I'm 32 yrs old so G1 was huge part of my childhood. The cartoons were great and the toys even better (from a child's stand point). As I got older, I found Beast Wars and the stories that they told were out of this world, the characters were believable and the morals were spot on. Couldn't have been written better, something as a younger lad, I couldn't appreciate. Transmutate sticks out in my mind the best. So what is yours? Toys or show. Read and share your comments now.
So I'm discovering real quick that I'm running out of space in my display cabinets for new figures... no wait... I've BEEN out of space for a while now! Lol my cabinets are the standard comic/collectible syle display/counter units, glass walls, glass top, glass shelves, mirror back and with the lighting kits installed. I have two 6' and one 3' cabinet giving me a ridiculous amount of space to display, but apparently not enough! I'm curious how everyone else solves this problem? Do you buy new units? Sell off part of your collection? Just call it good and move on with your life? - Follow the Topic Now
Not sure what category this actually falls in, but I was wondering how many out there that have either passed on Tf's to their children or just pick up Tf's for their kids on routine basis. I have a masterpiece Prime still in a box as well as one of the 25th Anniversary Primes and new to the addition, an Amazon G2 Bruticus. He loves the Animated series and the new Prime series. He routinely goes downstairs to my shelves and brings up Tf's to his dresser top in his room. So I was just curious if anyone else has similar stories about Tf's and their kids. Talk about it in the Forums
To all of the United States-based fans out there, Happy Fourth of July! Enjoy barbecues, fun, and fireworks with your family and friends as you celebrate your independence! Please be careful this holiday and return to us safely! And let us remember the saying of our favorite Autobot Leader - Optimus Prime: "Freedom is the Right of All Sentient Beings."
I think we've all grown used to combiners being a certain way in the Transformers universe. I just wonder, how would people feel about an ultimate combiner? What do I mean by that? Glad you asked. One HUGE combined bot...Obviously. But instead of one bot as an arm, one a leg, etc..etc..they make smaller bots where one becomes the forearm and hand, one the upper arm and shoulder. One the hip and upper leg, one lower leg and foot and at least 2 different bots for the body. At least 10 bots in all. Read and share your comments after the jump.
Here's my question..... My son and I just cleaned out my parents basement of all my old toys....This reignited my transformer fever. Most of my TFs are in great shape and even have the guns but have quite a bit of sticker wear... Should I peal off the old stickers and put a new set of repro stickers on him? Or would that degrade the value? What do you think?
OK Transformer fans... It is time that the O.G. BumbleBee got his time in the spotlight! A Sculpture project in Nashville, TN by Rick Prince is planned to create a life-sized sculpture of our yellow pal in robot mode. Rock caught wind of a new take on the old design and believes it needs to exist in the real world for all of us geeks to gather around and celebrate, take pics, and exchange our Transformer stories by his side. Rick is presently raising money to make it happen. You can help help with a donation of as little as $1. Read more details after the jump.
Have any of you ever kept note of when your collection has reached certain numerical milestones? Or maybe on an auspicious date. For example, which was your 100th or 1000th Transformer? Any other noteable numbers? I can't remember exactly when, but I think I reached my 100th Transformer around 1993 -- give or take a year. No idea who it was. My 1000th Transformer whizzed by me... I should've taken note, but unfortunately I didn't - so don't know who that was either. Join the Discussion Now
So I was looking at the completed listings on eBay of G1 figures and I noticed ALOT of them are going for cheap now...though there are still some that command high prices. Reason I was looking is because I just recently lost my job and am considering selling my collection as a last resort. So when did everything start going for less? Join the Discussion
Okay, transfans, it is up to you! As you all know, Hasbro is once again organizing the 2011 Transformers Hall of Fame, and they need your help once again! They have chosen a set of robots to be inducted in the Hall of Fame and they are the following three robots: Autobots Ironhide and Ratchet, and Decepticon Soundwave! But just like last year, there is room for one more as chosen by the fans
! So beginning now until Wednesday, April 6th at 12:00 PM Eastern time, we are asking for the character you think should the fourth member of this group! Continue reading

Someone in a previous thread mentioned that with the oncoming Autobots in the Reveal The Shield line, all we need are Hoist and Trailbreaker and were all set. I took a step back and thought about that. To an extant it's true, but only if you count season 1 of the original Transformers cartoon and only if you exclude Hauler and 4/5ths of the Dinobots. I've compounded a list of Autobots and Decepticons who have appeared in the G1 toon (in no particular order) followed by what lines their "updated" toys appeared in.
