TRANSFORMERS… heroic Autobots against evil Decepticons

Transformers_logo

Based on the Japanese TAKARA and BANDAI characters, Transformers were introduced to the US public in 1984 by HASBRO. Using the classic scenario of good guys versus the bad guys (Autobots vs Decepticons in this case), the concept of ‘transforming’ action figure robots into vehicles, weapons and animals proved to be hugely popular. TVTA is happy to present a number of international ads featuring some of the toys, comics and merchandise available back in the eighties.
