Welcom to the Transformers Generation 1 Wiki Edit
Welcome to the wiki. This is a collaborative community website about Transformers Generation 1 Characters.
The setup for transformers are two factions of sentient alien robots: the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons. Both sides are from a race called Transformers-robots that can change into vehicles, mechanical devices and even animal forms. They have waged civil war for eons on their home planet of Cybertron, a war that has started several million years B.C., before humans even existed on Earth. Their planet of Cybertron had become decimated and both factions had been reduced to scavenging for needed supplies, primarily energy. The Autobots leave their planet on a space ship, and the Decepticons follow them on their own vessel. When the decepticons board the Autobot ship, a battle breaks out, and with nobody controlling the ship it crashes onto prehistoric Earth and knocks everyone unconscious. Millions of years later, in 1984, the dormant volcano the Autobot ship had crashed and becomes active. The eruption re-sets the ship's computer, which deploys a probe to study the planet. The computer learns that the planet is inhabited, and in order to survive first contact the computer both repairs the disabled Transformers and re-configres them with physical forms based on vehicles and macines of human origin. The Transformers are able to hide by changing into vehices or devices in case humans turn out to be hostile.
