Transformers Generation 1 Robot Action Figures

By | November 15, 2014

If you grew up in the '80s, you'll probably remember the classic robot cartoon action series, The Transformers, that ignited the toy robot craze in the United States that fueled the toy and children television industry during that time period. Robot action figures were already popular in Japan, but these toys didn't capture the attention of American children until hit animation shows such as Transformers, Go Bots, and Robotech premiered on television during the Eighties.  Through the huge success of these animated shows among children, the popularity of these robot toys were instantly transported across the Pacific into the United States. The popularity of The Transformers still survive as a new movie franchise, inspiring a new generation series of Transformer toys.

However, some of the valuable original Transformer toys are being found in old toy boxes and they are being sold to collectors online.  Now you have a chance to relive your childhood by collecting original vintage Transformers action figures, known as Generation 1, and add them to your growing toy collection.  Shop below and find your favorite characters like Megatron, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Jazz, and Starscream.  If you scroll down further you can see the Japanese Transformers below.
