Transformers is a media franchise consisting on a long-running series of animated television series, comics and products by toy companies Hasbro (USA) and Takara Tomy (Japan).


The series (1984 - present) centers on the battles of two sentient robot factions, the Autobots and Decepticons.

Transformers and furry[edit]

The original Transformers, while not itself furry, had a CGI series, Beast Wars (and then Beast Machines}, released by Mainframe Entertainment (an animation Canadian company of ReBoot fame).

In Beast Wars, the transforming robots had animal modes (rather than vehicles or objects) as well as robot modes; in Beast Machines, the animal modes were themselves partially mechanized.

As both series' beast modes were stated as having actual DNA in them, and with Beast Wars creator Bob Forward admitted that the beast forms are "fully functional" (sentient), some furry fans[who?] have argued that this qualifies the series' characters as being anthroids and, thus, should be included into the furry fandom's lore.[citation needed][clarify]

The best known furry/Transformers artist is undoubtedly American furry artist Eric Schwartz who, in his webcomic Sabrina Online, has used the series and its robot characters as plot devices and gags in the comic series, most noticeably with his love for the title character of Silverbolt.
