:: Foxes and Bots ::

With the release of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," some fans tune in for the likes of the former Even Stevens and the vixen Megan Fox. All well and dandy, but take a stroll down memory lane and let us remember the good ol' days of the good ol' originals.

What became a giant phenomenon in America actually began in Japan in 1970's due to the Microman and Diaclone toylines. These were the original Transformers and caught the eye of Hasbro. Of that partnership, the Transformers comic and a TV show were born, including the popular Optimus Prime and Megatron, but also a slew of other characters that were unnamed within the original toy line-up.

After a cascade of spin-offs, the popularity has been renewed with the most recent Blockbuster hits.

With the bombardment of comic-turned-movie productions, it seems Hollywood likes to take advantage of our childhood and bring us back to the old school days and tug at our heartstrings. In my opinion, whether it's good or bad, it's working. *fist shaking ensues*
