More About Transformers and their Play-Full History!
Transformers: The Last Knight, aka Transformers 5, is the latest in a series of exciting movies, TV shows, books and comics, that have brought these now-legendary characters to life.
In Transformers: The Last Knight, with Optimums Prime gone, the Transformers and humans are at war. It's an uneven battle, to be sure, and to find peace, an intrepid team of humans led by Cade Yeager, must unlock the ancient history of these robots on earth. With the help of an English Lord, a professor from Oxford and, of course, Bumblebee, they must try to save the world.
Saving the world has always been at the center of the Transformers storylines. Since the characters first appeared in 1984, story has been key to generating engagement—and two generations of fans. Transforming robots had been popular in Japan for several years, but they'd never really found a place in the United States toy market until Hasbro came up with the characters and the legendary battles between the Decepticons and the Autobots.
They were an almost instant hit, touching on classic themes of good versus evil, power and conflict and the little guy able to win against all odds. Nothing particularly new in that; these are themes of classic literature. Yet Transformers touched off something in the imaginations of kids, and by Christmas of that first year, parents were desperate to get their hands on the toys, and just a year after Cabbage Patch dolls created chaos in stores, it seemed like history was repeating itself for a boys' toy.
Transformers kept on building, and that inspired knock-offs. In 1985, Hasbro put a special marking on its packages to ensure customers that what they were getting was the real stuff.
A TV series in the mid-1980s, an animated movie and five live action movies later, the Transformers have established themselves as classics.
Over the past three-plus decades, the toys have evolved, too. As design and production capabilities have gotten more sophisticated, we've seen more detailed models and better transforming, though in many cases the process is still largely akin to solving a puzzle.
As younger and younger fans have been drawn into the Transformers excitement, we've also seen simpler transformation and, of course, more role play items that allow kids to become their favorite characters.
One thing's for sure; each new movie rekindles the cultural excitement for the toys. Check them out and find the best ones for you. Scroll back up, and start shopping!
