About Transformers G1

Optimus Prime and Megatron engage in brutal combat while Starscream circles overhead like a vulture. The world of the original Transformers, now called Transformers G1 (Generation 1), consisted of a range of action toys, an animated television show, and a comic series. Hasbro launched the brand in 1984, and G1 covers the period up until 1991. Original action figures from the G1 era, such as the Transformers G1 Optimus Prime, are in big demand with collectors, especially those who grew up playing with the toys. However, if your budget does not stretch to afford a Transformers G1 Megatron, numerous recent versions based on the original toys also exist. The Transformers franchise continues to thrive, especially after Michael Bay's intense live-action movies hit cinemas and bred a new generation of fans. Whether you are new to the world of Transformers or you have been collecting for years, you can find everything you could want on eBay, where reliable sellers offer Transformers G1 merchandise every day.
