    Taken Straight from TF Wiki.

    Marvel Comics' Transformers #1 hits newsstands (with a cover date of September). This was the very first Transformers product made available... so Happy Anniversary, Transformers!





    The only person whose noticed this so far is KalelPrime. I know it's Mothers Day but we can't forget Milestones like this.

    I remember I think it was 7 Years ago back when i the biggest Transformers Noob and still didn't have any of the toys, YTV played like a whole crap load of Marathons of Beast Wars, Beast Machines, R.I.D, Armada and Energon (Yes i'l admit i used to think it was awesome) and to top it all off a showing of the 1986 Transformers Movie.

    I know 27 isn't the biggest anniversery number but we can't forget a day like this. It's not really a day to go out and have a party for but still. I just thought some of you guys needed to know about this.

    I hope in 2014 we have a big celebration once our beloved robot franchise is over 3 decades old.

    Happy anniversary and all that.
    Anybody celebrating this in any fashion?

    Maybe reading the first issue of the comic or watching a few of their favorite episodes or something?

    I probably won't, I don't really feel like it.

    I read this today on FullMetalHero. I'm not really bothered about the 27th anniversary.

    Happy birthday Transformers. Ah, it's already a year since I made the Happy Birthday thread a year ago... :) 

    My favorite to this day? Beast Wars, Animated, and Prime!

    A 27th anniversary is a milestone?

    Exactly. I don't think it's so much that people didn't remember, but it's just more of an odd number.

    Anyways :bday

    I would have said something, but last year Transformers didn't even send me a card for my birthday.

    The toys came out in fall right? The comic came out in early summer with a cover month of September (that always confused me until I got into the industry) so why is that wrong? Elaborate a bit please.

    No as far as I remember.

    I bought issue 1 of the comic the Saturday after it was released at Forbidden Planet on 12st NYC.I bought Bumblebee the same day.

    And I already had Soundwave with Buzzsaw in my collection.

    Now its a fact that Forbidden planet use to get NEW tf's before general toy stores.....but not that much early.

    I believe the reason so many believe they were released in the fall is because thats when hasbro put a "push" behind the marketing.
