    Yeah, but keep in mind that the Marvel comic and the toyline started several months before the cartoon.

    Dude, Transformers was strong before the movies. The movies just turned a massively popular brand into an EXTREMELY POPULAR one.

    There was a 23 year gap between 1984 and the first movie... so... what would you say was keeping the franchise afloat in the meantime, exactly?

    Just want to make sure also... I think I'm right...
    This would be the 26th or the 27th anniversary?

    I was also thinking of using one of these for the song...




    Idk yet.... Maybe I can find a English song... x-D

    May 8th is when the first issue of the Marvel Comic was released. While the Cartoon might be more recognizable to the casual public, it doesn't change the fact that comic came first (and was also advertised first). There's no real way to gauge what day the toys were first released, so the comic is our best indicator of "when the franchise began."
