The Transformers are both robots and vehicles in one retro-chic package. Heres why theyre more than meets the eye!

Chocolate or vanilla? Ashlee or Jessica? Robot or vehicle? Why make the difficult decisions in life? With Transformers you get everything you want in one wicked-cool package. They're more than meets the eye!

Transformers - Main Characters

  • Optimus Prime - The leader of the Autobots who has dedicated himself to protecting the weak from the evil Decepticons. When he's not his robot self, he's a tough-as-nails semi truck.
  • Wheeljack - Sometimes a robot, sometimes an Italian race car (Lancia Stratos), Wheeljack uses his skills as a master inventor to aid the Autobot cause.
  • Bumblebee - The smallest of the Autobots, Bumblebee can often fit into spaces where other Autobots can't. He also doubles as an old-school Volkswagen Beetle.
  • Trailbreaker - Part robot, part 4WD Toyota, this Autobot has the power to create impenetrable force fields.
  • Prowl - When he's not a police car, this Autobot can be found taking care of Decepticon bad guys as the right-hand-man to Optimus Prime.

Transformers - Villains

  • Megatron - Whether he's a robot or a pistol, Megatoron lives to battle the Autobots. His fusion cannon can kill Transformers with one shot when it is fully charged.
  • Skywarp - Part robot, part fighter jet, this Decepticon is a force to be reckoned with.
  • Starscream - This jet/robot combo is so eager to steal [kwlink]leadership[/kwlink] of the Decepticons from Megatron that he often costs his side victories.
  • Thundercracker - Another jet/robot combo, this Decepticon sometimes has doubts about the Decepticon cause. However, that doesn't stop him from using his cruise missiles to defeat the Autobots.
  • Soundwave - This Decepticon is super old-school. He's a cassette player that houses the lower-level Decepticons who turn into cassettes. He was obviously invented long before anyone had even dreamed about an iPod.

The Transformers: The Movie on DVD

The Transformers: The Movie is set in 2005 and helps connect the second and third seasons to the original series. It's darker and more action-packed than the TV series, and features the death of old favorites and the introduction of a bunch of new characters. It also includes cool extras like a sneak peek at the 2007 live action movie, original toy commercials, trailers and deleted footage.
