Transformers

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Occult, Sci-Fi
Synopsis
Where to start???

Well in 1984 the Transformers hit But in the late 70's two series would give birth to what we know as Transformers Generation 1. Those series Diaclone and Microman.

To do a quickie, The Transformers series is one of the 80s classics that did die but returned in 90s first, under the guise of Beast Wars in the US.

In Japan however after the Tf mini series Rebirth aired the series stayed alive in the form of Headmasters and many deaths occured in this season alone. Soundwave and Blaster both died fighting each other, Convoy (Optimus Prime) had his first death in Japanese series (the movie hadn't aired yet in Japan), Galvatron was frozen alive, Ultra Magnus was brutally beaten to death and we also find out he was religious (huge funeral scene with a glass top coffin and all. Strangely enough there is a cross on the bottom of the coffin.)

After Headmasters Came Masterforce, then Victory (rated as one of the best of the Japanese [tf] series), and finally Zone to end the tv run of the Transformers but it did carry on in Manga format. Return of Convoy (does it have to be said why this story was big) and another which escapes me right now.

Beast Wars hit but didn't do well but Takara (the creators of the Diaclone and Microman lines) decided to do two Beast Wars anime series, Beast Wars Second and Beast Wars Neo.

Now there was a Manga for both but Neo was a first to see a team up between enemies against the ultimate TF evil Unicron and had a real tragic story between the two leaders Big Convoy a Wolly Mammoth (also first TF toy to come with a Matrix) and Magmatron a 3 dino leader.

Beast Wars came and went and Reissues started up in Japan of the great G1 toys (ofcourse importing had probs thanks to the Original Megatron mold, a Walter P-38 with attachments, getting seized by customs thinking it was the real deal) and a series that did what fans wanted to see, G1 style molds with the poseability of Beast Wars, enter Car Robots aka Robots in Disguise.

Currently we are in Armada on tv (it's known as Micron Legend in Japan)
