Transformers Toys

There can be no better 80s toy that the Transformer. For me, this was the ultimate 80s toy. I had about 10 of them, Bumblebee being my first ever one, and the Transformers Panini Sticker Album is the only one I EVER finished.

Transformers were robots that you could transform into other things, usually vehicles. They needed to be in disguise to remain undetected on earth. The premise was this; there were two sides fighting against each other, the Autobots (good guys) and the Decepticons (bad guys). Later on there were also Dinobots (bad guys who became good guys) Constructicons and Insecticons, but I won’t complicate things too much with these!

The Autobots were lead by Optimus Prime (pictured) and were all cars of some description. Optimus was a huge juggernaught, Mirage was a Formula One type car, Bumblebee was a VW Beetle, Jazz was a sports car… I could go on for a good few minutes.

The Decepticons were everything except cars. Megatron, the Decepticon leader, transformed from a robot into a gun. Soundwave transformed into a cassette player and came with cassettes that also transformed into robots, and most other Decepticons, of which one notable one was Starscream, transformed into planes.

The toys were produced between 1984 and 1990, and the cartoon spawned may great series.
