36 Transformers Gifts for Heroic Cybertronians

ⓘ The Elder Geek makes mad bank (receives a commission) if you buy something using a link on this page.

Billions of years ago, a race of giant, sentient, transforming robots lived peacefully upon the mechanized planet Cybertron. Until they didn’t.

The insidious Decepticon faction waged war across the planet, and the peaceful Autobots struggled to contain it. Until they couldn’t.

So, the Autobots fled to Earth, the Decepticons followed, and they resumed an eons-long war with humanity regularly trampled underfoot.

In 1984, the harrowing Transformers epic was told by Hasbro’s popular toyline, Marvel Comics, and the classic animated cartoon. This three-pronged marketing assault captured a generation’s imagination, leading to the renowned animated movie, several more cartoon series, countless toys, and more recently, a live-action film series.

If you’re shopping for a Transformers fan, you’re probably overwhelmed by the decades of accumulated Transformers merchandise.

Not sure what to choose for the person who disparages Megatron, exalts Optimus, and claims your city is actually a sleeping Metroplex? Then look to our Transformers Gift List and choose an item worthy of admirable Autobots (and devious Decepticons).
