As an American Toy Designer, Archer’s spectacular involvement in the Transformers universe is well known amongst fans worldwide.

He also played a similar role in developing Energon and Cybertron, as well as Alternators. He even penned story concepts for 3 Unicron Trilogy lines before being promoted 3 times to Vice President of Intellectual Property Development at Hasbro. Archer was also the creative lead for all Transformers partnerships including 4 feature films, 4 video games, 5 animated series, theme park rides and countless publishing projects.
Beyond the Transformers Universe, Archer designed a variety of toys for various lines for Hasbro/Kenner including but not limited to Batman, Jurassic Park and Alien Resurrection while being directly involved with the G.I. Joe brand. More recently, Archer made multiple appearances on both Season 1 and 2 of Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us airing now.
