Judging by those boards, it's going well for all of them except Hello Kitty. Despite its longevity, there might just not be too much to say about it.

Well, if there's one toyline it'd make sense to replace with MLP at the last minute...

yeah, that is the odd one out. I would have suggested Mr potatoe head or Hotwheels or Ninja Turtles but I think they wanted to diversify their toys.

First, "Transformrers" in the post title. ;)

Second, this sounds like it could actually be fun. They do seem to be doing some fan oriented stuff rather than just drone on about the franchise. I see notes about doing the transformation sound with your mouth, transforming without instructions, and even mention of 3rd party figures. Yeah, I'll be watching.

You'll remember we covered the upcoming Netflix documentary The Toys that Made Us, which will span a number of toy brands and franchises from the 80s, one for each of the eight episodes. Along with Lego, Hello Kitty, Star Trek, and others, Transformers is also in the mix - and do you know who else it will feature?

Seibertron.com creator and owner himself, Ryan Yzquierdo! As announced by the official Facebook page for the series, he'll be showing up in the Transformers episode, once the series streams in January 2018. Let us know if you'll be watching, and join the discussion in the Energon Pub!

Ryan Yzquierdo, the owner of Seibertron.com and a Transformers toy collector, is featured in #TTTMU! #Transformers

This is GREAT! Can't wait to see it. Can't wait to see the Boss's collection.
Of course we all get to see his collection, but I mean how it lives in his home.

We first reported on the new Netflix 80s nostalgia grab show The Toys That Made us back in January. The series will see 8 focused episodes, each on a different franchise from the last century (yep; millennium too) including Star Wars, Hello Kitty, Lego, Star Trek, GI Joe, Masters of the Universe, Barbie and of course, Transformers.

In June, we then reported that site owner Ryan Yzquierdo will be featuring in the Transformers episode, which will air at some point after the start of the series on December 22nd. Is this post bringing us any new information? Not really, no. Consider it a reminder of some expansion to the Seibertron.com presence in popular media, as Ryan will be featuring alongside comics creator Bob Budiansky, voice legend Peter Cullen, other collectors in the Transformers fandom, and many more! Will you be tuning in?
