It’s been five years since the last installment in the Transformers film franchise. Bumblebee, which came out in 2018, was the last time we saw our favorite robots in disguise. This past week, the latest installment, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts premiered and boy does it have us reminiscing about our childhoods.  

For all of us who grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons, Transformers was one that you knew was going to be on. From 1984 to 1987, The Transformers, aka the animated series, aired on Saturday mornings.  

So, because this is the latest buzz it had my brain thinking of what kinds of cool Transformers products there were out there. And because I love a good bit of online shopping, I’ve put together a list of Transformers items that will definitely have you feeling nostalgic for your childhood.


  • 1) Transformers Neon Sign

    Okay, I am just picturing how cool this would look in a game room! The battle between the Autobots and Decepticons is one we all know well. And while I am rooting for the Autobots every film, I know there are some Decepticon lovers out there too. This creator makes both the Autobot and Decepticon symbol in a large neon sign that would make a really awesome piece of décor.

  • 4) Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Comic Inspired Movie Poster

    The second film in the Transformers franchise was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Now, that movie still holds the record for one of the funniest things my brother has ever said which is when one of the main characters “dies” he looked over at us and said he wanted the leave the film. We did not leave, but we did get a funny moment out of it. Anyway… this is a super cool item! The creator of this item made a comic book-inspired movie poster based on the original film’s promotional poster. If you love that vintage/comic book look this item is an instant add-to-cart!

    This is such a cool logo! When it comes to fun t-shirts I’m always looking for a cool one regarding of my favorite shows and movies.
