Transformers (Japanese: トランスフォーマー Hepburn: Toransufōmā) is a media franchise produced by American toy company Hasbro and Japanese toy company Takara Tomy. Initially a line of transforming toys rebranded from Takara’s Diaclone and Microman toylines, the franchise began in 1984 with the Transformers toy line, and centers on factions of self-configuring modular extraterrestrial robotic lifeforms (often the Autobots and the Decepticons) in an endless civil war for dominance or eventual peace. In its history, the franchise has expanded to encompass comic books, animation, video games and films.


Two opposing factions of transforming alien robots engage in a battle that has the fate of Earth in the balance.
