Transformers Generation 1 Robot Action Figures

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.
