Transformers Generation 1 Robot Action Figures

By | December 1, 2012

If you grew up in the Eighties, 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 it didn't capture the attention of American children until hit animation shows such as Transformers, Go Bots, and Robotech premiered on television during the '80s.  This huge popularity was instantly transported across the Pacific into the United States during the mid 1980's. The popularity of The Transformers still survive as a new movie franchise, inspiring a new generation series of Transformer toys.
