(im so sorry for having a ridiculous amount of favourites)


WHATS A TRANSFORMER? WHY DO YOU LIKE 'EM?

WELL, TRANSFORMERS IS A TOY FRANCHISE FROM ALL THE WAY BACK IN THE 1980S, OWNED BY HASBRO, WHO YOU MIGHT BE WELL AWARE OF IF YOU LIKE OTHER TOY LINE BASED SERIES LIKE MY LITTLE PONY (SIDE NOTE TO MENTION: THERES CROSSOVER COMICS OF TF AND MLP. THEYRE FUNNY AND YOU SHOULD READ THEM.) THE FIGURES AND FRANCHISE ITSELF WAS ACTUALLY BORN IN JAPAN, THE ORIGINAL TOYLINE BEING NAMED DIACLONE, OWNED BY TAKARA. THE TOYS WERE NOT DOING SO GREAT AT THE TIME, WHICH CAUSED THE COMPANY TO TRY TURN ELSEWHERE TO SELL THE TOYS. THEY PUT THEM UP ON DISPLAY AT A TOKYO TOY SHOW IN WHICH HASBRO PICKED UP ON THEM, AND MADE A DEAL WITH THE OG COMPANY, TAKING THE TOYS AND RENAMING THEM TO SOME OF THE MOST BELOVED OF THE FRANCHISE TODAY, GIVING THEM THE PERSONALITIES WERE FAMILIAR WITH AND RENAMNG THE FRANCHISE TO "TRANSFORMERS",AND THUS A WELL BELOVED TOY FRANCHISE WAS BORN. . . OKAY WELL, THE FULL STORY OF THE DIACLONE TO TRANSFORMER PIPELINE IS A LOT MORE COMPLICATED THAN THAT BUT IM NO EXPERT ON THE INNER WORKINGS OF CAPITALISM. IN 1984, HASBRO RELEASED A CARTOON FOR TRANSFORMERS, DUBBED "G1" THESE DAYS, THE SHOW WAS A SUCCESS, AND LIKELY WHY MANY PEOPLE OLDER THAN ME HAVE ALWAYS MADE REFERENCES OFFHANDEDLY TO IT IN TALKING ABOUT THEIR CHILDHOOD THINGS. SINCE THEN, TRANSFORMERS HAS MANAGED TO STAY PRETTY SUCCESSFUL, STILL SEEING NEW MEDIA MADE FOR IT TO THIS DAY, IN PRETTY MUCH ANY FORM YOU CAN FIND. COMICS, TV SHOWS, MOVIES BOTH ANIMATED AND LIVE ACTION AND OF COURSE THE EVER STRONG TOYLINE, WHICH IS ALL THE MEDIA IVE BECOME DEEPLY ATTACHED TO IS TRULY FOR. TO SELL.

I WOULD JUST SAY I GOT INTO TRANSFORMERS IN THE PAST YEAR, BUT REALLY THATS NOT ENTIRELY TRUE. THE 2007 MOVIE HIT THE SCREENS AND MY PARENTS, ENTHRALLED WITH THINGS FROM THEIR GENERATION, OF COURSE LET ME SEE IT. I LOVED THAT MOVIE SO MUCH AS A KID, BUMBLEBEE WAS MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE CHARACTER EVER FOR SO LONG. I WAS REALLY THERE FOR IT THROUGH THE FIRST AND SECOND MOVIES, AND MY PARENTS BOUGHT ME A COPY OF THE 1986 FILM AS WELL, WHICH I WAS SCARED OF AS A CHILD BECAUSE OF UNICRON. THOSE SHOTS INSIDE OF THIS GIANT THING EATING PLANETS WERE SO DAMN UNSETTLING TO ME. EVENTUALLY CONSIDERING I WAS STILL SO YOUNG I GRADUALLY MOVED ONTO OTHER THINGS, AND SADLY THE FRANCHISE WAS MOSTLY PUSHED TO THE BACK OF MY MIND FOR THE LONGEST TIME SINCE. AND THEN I SAW A COUPLE OF MY FRIENDS TALKING ABOUT IT. ONE OF MY FRIENDS WAS ALREADY INTO IT FOR A LONG TIME BY THAT POINT, AND MY OTHER FRIEND HAD JUST GOTTEN INTO IT THROUGH READING MTMTE. SO I HAD THE THOUGHT "ITD BE KINDA FUNNY IF I GOT BACK INTO THIS AFTER BEING OBSESSED WITH IT AS A KID." SO I EVENTUALLY DID, I PULLED UP MTMTE ON READALLCOMICS (RIP) AND GOT TO READING THROUGHOUT OCTOBER OF LAST YEAR. AND I GOT SO SO INTO IT IN AN INSTANT, IT WAS AND STILL IS ONE OF THE BEST THINGS IVE SEEN. MY TOP FAVOURITE THESE DAYS IS HOTROD/RODIMUS BECAUSE OF THIS FUNNY STORY. SINCE THEN IVE CONSUMED THE BULK OF EXISTING MEDIA OF THE FRANCHISE, G1, ANIMATED, PRIME, EARTHSPARK, SOME OF THE LIVE ACTION MOVIES, MUCH OF THE IDW GEN 1 COMICS. . . AND IM STARTING A COLLECTION OF FIGURES! (YOU CAN SEE MY COLLECTION PROGRESS ON THE BOX LABELLED AS SUCH.)
