We’ll Always Have G1

Hot on the heels of Simon Plumbe’s excellent article about the Bay movies: http://www.autoassembly.org.uk/michael-bay-ruined-childhood/ I coincidentally decided to show the first Transfomers Bay movie to my friend’s son today, and it was fascinating to see how he reacted to the movie. When I originally watched the movie, I was surrounded by people who were already very […]

Three Things We Want from a New Transformers Game

It is fair to say that 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Transformers fans. Not only is there the latest instalment of Michael Bay’s blockbuster franchise – The Last Knight – to look forward to, but also a new mobile game. Developed by Kabam Games, Transformers Forged To Fight is expected […]

Michael Bay Has Ruined My Childhood

“Michael Bay, you’ve destroyed my childhood!”. It’s a common phrase (or something far worse that I’m not willing to repeat here) that’s seen online every couple of years each time a new live-action Transformers movie is released, either cinematically or when it makes its way onto home video. There’s no getting away from the fact […]

Auto Assembly – back from our hiatus

Three Transformers Video Games We’d Like to See

Transformers is a behemoth in terms of its ability to generate spin-offs from its core product. Unlike other massive franchises such as Star Wars or Toy Story, Transformers began with the toy and grew from there to develop comics, books, films, animated series and video games. After Hasbro bought the Diaclone and Microman toy lines, […]

Does The Transformers Franchise Need To Take A Break?

While the toys themselves have been around since the 1970s, Transformers itself as a franchise has only been with us since 1984. However, in the last 30+ years it has reinvented itself and reimagined the toys, comics, and characters countless times to not only continue to appeal to new generation of fans but, taking a […]

How to Transform Transformers into a Modern Day Franchise

When the Autobots first assembled in 1984 and began their onslaught on the mainstream media, the entertainment industry looked very different than it does today. Despite the fact that the toys dominated our view of the brand for most of our childhood, with the G1 cartoon and Marvel UK comics for support, there’s no getting […]

G1 Plot Holes That Need To Be Fixed Part One – Can Autobots Fly Or Not?

There are still parts of the Transformers Universe that I have yet to explore, but I’m gradually getting there. I used to be a G1 and G1 only guy when it came to Transformers, but over the years I’ve learned to enjoy exploring other iterations such as Armada and Prime. It was when watching Transformers […]
