Transformers is a franchise that originated from a line of toys produced by Hasbro and Takara Tomy in the early 1980s. These toys were robots that could transform into vehicles, such as cars, planes, and tanks, and vice versa. The original toy line was called "The Transformers" and was released in 1984.

The toys were a massive hit, and soon after, an animated television series was developed to accompany them. The show, also called "The Transformers," aired from 1984 to 1987 and followed the adventures of two factions of transforming robots, the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons, as they battled for control of the universe. The show was known for its memorable characters, epic battles, and catchy theme song.

The success of the cartoon show led to the development of numerous spin-offs, including comic books, video games, and animated films. In 1986, the first Transformers animated movie was released, featuring an all-star voice cast and an epic story that pitted the Autobots against their greatest enemy yet, the planet-devouring Unicron.

After a hiatus in the 1990s, the Transformers franchise returned in the early 2000s with a new animated series, "Transformers: Armada," which followed a new generation of robots as they battled for control of the mysterious Mini-Cons. This was followed by several other animated series, including "Transformers: Energon" and "Transformers: Cybertron."

In 2007, the Transformers franchise made the leap to the big screen with the release of the live-action film "Transformers," directed by Michael Bay. The movie was a massive success and spawned several sequels, including "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," "Transformers: Age of Extinction," and "Transformers: The Last Knight." The live-action films featured a new generation of transforming robots, as well as a new human cast led by actor Shia LaBeouf.

Throughout the years, the Transformers franchise has remained popular with fans of all ages, thanks to its memorable characters, thrilling action, and iconic designs. From the original toy line to the animated series to the live-action movies, Transformers has become a cultural phenomenon that shows no signs of slowing down.
