This week, Adrian brings us through the 30 year history of Transformers. It all started a Japanese-American joint venture for a line of Hasbro toys and transformed into one of the most beloved and marketable franchises of the last quarter-century. As a Marvel/Disney property, the crew dives into the possibilities for crossovers and talk about how the Transformers-verse merging with Disney’s other properties have spawned some awesome comic-book cameos and lines of action figures. Adrian also brings us through how Transformers aren’t just robots in disguise but are really among the first sentient robots, with their own stories to tell. And last but not least, we talk about how in spite of bad critic reviews, Micheal Bay’s film adaptations have smashed the box-office and become a touch-stone for a new generation of fans.
