Transformers is taking off!

It's never been unpopular, but in recent years Transformers has been slowly transforming (excuse the pun) into a massive frachise following that is growing without sighn of slowing.  Since the original animated series, there have been more than 10 different animated series:

Transformers G1
Transformers G2 (a Re-release of G1, with added effects)
Transformers: Headmasters
Transformers Super God Masterforce
Transformers Victory
Transformers Zone (A new series which wasn't produced after the pilot)
Beast Wars
Beast Wars II
Beast Wars Neo
Beast Machines
Transformers Robots in Disguise
Transformers Armada
Transformers Energon
Transformers Cybertron
Transformers Animated
Transformers Prime

and also the massively popular Transformers Live Action Films.

A winning combination of sleek visual robotic designs, well choreographed action, and beloved characters.  but beyond that is a deep history and even mythology behind the Transformers, with the theory of a Transformers Spark - giving life to the Autobots & Decepticons.  In the comic books, the Transformers even have gods - with Primus being the creator of the Autobots and Unicron creating the Decepticons.

Like all good franchises the toyline, which began the whole cartoon series and comic books, as become even more popular.  Ebay has original boxed Transformers from the 1980's selling anywhere from a few hundred dollars to over a thousand dollars! Multiple Toy lines, including a the Universe line which is a reimagining of the original toys with increased articulation, have been all the rave for Transformers fans around the world.

The Live Action Movies have been massive blockbuster's being some of the biggest movies of the year, with Dark of the Moon (The 3rd and currently upcoming Transformers film) looking promising.  Check out this trailer to see what's coming!

      I'm easy, as long as it's entertaining. It's definitely be cool to see more G1 characters like the Dinobots though. That'd make for an interesting movie.

      I love the Transformer's movies and can't wait for the third to come out. I grew up with the original cartoons and now my kids are growing up with this new generation.
