Transformers Robot Heroes

Transformers Robot Heroes is an action figure line marketed by Hasbro beginning in 2007. The line features 2-inch (51 mm) scale replicas of Autobots and Decepticons from the various Transformers universes. Robot Heroes, which was designed for younger collectors ages 3 and up, is split into smaller lines, that collect specific universes. Those sub-lines are: Generation One - representing the original cartoon series and toy line, Transformers The Movie and Revenge of the Fallen - each representing their respective movies, and Universe - which represents all universes, including the Beast Wars series and the original Transformers the Movie cartoon. Marketed initially as four two-packs per wave, Robot Heroes has branched out to include larger multi-packs and have been included in Best Buy DVD Exclusives. In early 2010, Hasbro confirmed that the Robot Heroes line had ended despite the fact that six of the Universe line's 2-packs were never officially released. Despite this announcement, it is possible that Hasbro will resurrect the Robot Heroes line with the release of Transformers 3 in 2011.

Transformers Robot Heroes Generation One 2-Packs[edit | edit source]

The Generation One line was the first series of Robot Heroes released. All the characters in the two waves were based on the Generation One designs of the Transformers that were found in the original Transformers cartoon. The Generation One line only lasted two waves, most likely because the Transformers Movie line required more room in stores and was most likely expected to sell better. In the time between the first and second Transformers movies, the Robot Heroes Universe line was created, and that's where the Generation One line was then incorporated into.

Transformers The Movie Robot Heroes 2-Packs[edit | edit source]

The Transformers Movie line was created as a tie-in to the 2007 live-action Transformers movie. The line lasted for three waves, the first to coincide with the theatrical release, the second to coincide with the DVD release, and the third for no real adequately explained reason. Following the release of the third wave, the line ended but movie figures resumed release when Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen came out in June 2009.

Transformers Revenge of The Fallen Robot Heroes 2-Packs[edit | edit source]

This line acted as a tie-in to the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The line began with the first wave containing six 2-packs to go with the theatrical release of the movie. The subsequent two waves released with only two 2-packs each, though they were released a little earlier than the DVD, nonetheless, they're more than likely DVD tie-ins. The Movie Multipacks could possibly be the reason for the low number of 2-packs found in the final two waves of this line. It is currently unknown if a movie line will pick up again with the release of Transformers 3, though Hasbro has confirmed that the Robot Heroes line is over.

Transformers Robot Heroes Universe 2-Packs[edit | edit source]

The Universe line acted as a line to hold collectors over between the first and second Transformers movies. The Universe line consisted of Transformers from several different Transformers universes such as Generation One, Beast Wars, and Beast Machines. The first four waves were released to stores successfully then problems began to arise with the fifth wave. Mostly likely to make room for the Revenge of the Fallen products, Hasbro had the last two waves of Universe Robot Heroes put on hold. The Ricochet and Predaking 2-Pack and the Tigatron and Inferno 2-Pack were both found at retail in Europe and Asia, but none of the other four 2-pack have ever been seen at retail. Furthermore, all six of the officially unreleased packs have been seen on eBay loose, but never in package (with the exception of one Optimus Primal and Jetstorm 2-Pack). Hasbro did state that they intended to release these 2-packs but later went back on that statement when they confirmed the cancellation of the entire Robot Heroes line. More than likely these six unreleased 2-packs will never make it to American retailers.

Transformers Robot Heroes Exclusives[edit | edit source]

With the release of the Transformers the Movie DVD, Best Buy made an exclusive DVD that contained a repainted Optimus Prime and Cliffjumper. These may still be in Best Buy stores, but the best place to find it is probably on eBay.

Transformers Robot Heroes 5-Packs[edit | edit source]

For the release of Transformers the Movie, Wal-Mart released two exclusive five packs. The first of which was entirely Generation One based, while the second was entirely movie based. The two 5-packs contained only repaints and as of now are no longer available in stores.

Transformers Revenge of The Fallen Movie Multipacks[edit | edit source]

For the Revenge of the Fallen movie, Hasbro released four multipacks, all of which varied in the number of figures they contained. They were unique as they were the first Robot Heroes packs to have vehicle mode and giant sized Robot Heroes. All four packs are based on scenes in the movie, as similar to the Galactic Heroes cinema scenes.
