    EDIT: Oops, redundant info.... nevermind.

    I would check out the Resources link at the top of this site, though... you'll find a lot of info there about the various lines.

    The main ones are:
    Generation 1 (US/ Japan) the orginals
    Generation 2: Somewhat infamous for neon colors, though we did get some articulation
    Beast Wars: To some fans, the greatest TF line of the 90's, it improved on the ball joint of G2 in every one and led to some unique and popular characters
    Beast Machines: Controversial, I can get into a whole flame war over it
    RID: or Car Robots
    Armada/ Energon/ Cybertron: Unicron Trilogy, had a Unicron in some form through all 3 lines, introduced mini-cons
    Classics: Return of the G1 characters to bridge gap between Cybertron and Movie line
    Movie: The line for movie characters and characters designed with movie style
    Animated: New line for current cartoon
    Universe: or Classics 2.0

    Well, I wouldn't really call Revoltech a major TF toy line. More like a giant robot in general line. There is only 5 TF's in the line of around 40-50 (I think, not to current on my revoltech releases)

    No one's mentioned Machine Wars yet. It was a small line and a KB exclusive, but it was a full-fledged toy line.

    There's also the Animorphs and the Go-Bot kiddy lines.
