When did the first transformer come out

The first transformer was released in 1984 by a Japanese toy company named Takara Tomy.

Takara Tomy is a Japanese entertainment company.

The company was created from the merger of two companies in 2006.
Tomy was in created 1924 with the name Tomiyama and then changed it to Tomy in 1963.

The company Tomy merged with Rivaol Takara that was founded in 1955. Takara Tomy headquarters is located in Katsushika, Tokyo.

A company called Hasbro also help was the creation of the transformers.

Together these creators made the first transformer. Optimus Prime was the first toy created from the toy line.

The series of cartoons ran from 1984-1987. The cartoon series was created in the same year the first transformer was made.

When was the first comic book made?

There were only 3 main publishers of the comic book series was the transformers.
The very first series was produced by marvel comics from 1984 to 1991.

Marvel comics is the name and imprint of Marvel Worldwide inc, which started in 1939.
Marvel comics ran 80 issues of the transformers comics book.

After that, the second volume titled Transformers: Generation 2 was released and only ran 12 issues that began in 1993.

The next series was Dreamwave Production from 2002 to 2004 and include many series.

In 2005 the company became bankrupt and of course transformers comics and to stop with this company.

The third series was produced by IDW Publishing in October 2005.

All these movies were great and I saw each and every one of them.

What are the generations of the Autobot?

 

There are two main generations of Autobot.

Which are broken down simply as generation-one and generation-two.

The two groups are the series of Autobots that came out for that time period. So the first generation of Autobot was created from 1984 to 1992.

And then the second generation was created from 1992-1995.

How many transformers are there?

 

This is really a hard number to find because there were many different versions of the same type of Autobot. In the tv series, there were about 31 transformer categories.

This is between the Autobots and the Decepticons. These categories are broken down into the different titles that were given to the transformer.

From things like Autobot cars, mini-bots, Dinobot, Protectobot and the list continues. There are over 100 different types of transformer.

Some of the main characters are Optimus Prime which is the strongest and most courageous of all the Autobots and he’s the leader.

Bumblebee is the small, eager, and brave of the Autobot. He’s one of the smaller Autobots and he idolizes Optimus Prime.

Cliffjumperis eager and one of the fastest Autobot. Wheeljackis the mad scientist and wrecker. He invents new weapons and gadgets.

One of the deceptions of the main character is, Megatron he combines brute strength, military ruthlessness, and terror. Soundwave can hear the impossible with his great hearing ability.

Shockwave has a laser gun that can emit lethal beams of energy from anywhere
on the electromagnetic spectrum. Thundercracker can fly at a speed up to 1550 mph.

What’s the difference between Autobot and Decepticons

 

The main difference between Autobot and Decepticons that I have gathered from watching all the movies.

Is that Autobot is a group of transformer that is trying to save the earth.

While deceptions on the other hand are trying to destroy it. Both Autobot and Decepticon are strong in their own way.

Autobot is the superheroes of the transformers and Decepticons are the evil villains. They both are from the planet Cybertron.

All of the Decepticons have red eyes which is the biggest factor to tell the two transformers apart.

Because the Autobot eyes are blue. They both have the ability to transform from a robot into a different thing.

Who is the most powerful Autobot

 

Of course, the most powerful Autobot that has to be the leader of the whole Autobot is Optimus Prime.

Optimus Prime is the most powerful one of the whole Autobot team. Not only is he more powerful than all of them.

He has a better mindset as the leader, he will put his life on the line to save the Autobot Transformers team.

That’s what makes him a great leader and the most powerful one.

So who’s going to be in line with me when the new Transformer movie comes out?

I am a blogger that was born in the 1980's. So I decided to write about the 1980's because I feel that was one of the best decades ever.
