** Soundwave's alternate mode is a perfect example. He turned into a casette player; an useful disguise back then, nowadays not so much. Of course, some more... nostalgic fans (luckily a minority) disagree with any attempt at modernization.

The first of these was published by MarvelComics. It is sometimes stated that the comic came before the cartoon; while issue 1 of the comic hit the newsstands quite some time before the first episode of the cartoon aired, the cartoon went into production long before the comic.

* {{Underlighting}}: It used underlighting frequently for the yellow Autobot gunshots, the purple Decepticon gunshots, and sometimes the red and blue glowing eyes.

It finally ended after 80 issues (in America) or 332 (in Britain) due to declining interest in ''Transformers'', though Marvel would later publish the short-lived ''[[ComicBook/TransformersGeneration2 Generation 2]]'' comic. In 2012, IDW Publishing announced ''Transformers: Regeneration One'', a relaunch of the Marvel Transformers continuity picking up 21 years after where issue 80 left off. The series is slated to run until issue #100.

** Averted in the Marvel comic book series, which tended to have eyes matching whatever color was on the toy... except when colorist Nelson Yomtov [[TheyJustDidntCare just didn't seem to care]].

In 1987, the [[TransformersHeadmasters Headmaster and Targetmaster]] toys were introduced. These were the first gimmicks originally designed for the ''Transformers'' brand. Headmasters consisted of two robots, a small robot that transformed into a head and a larger, headless robot that transformed into a vehicle. These had to combine to form the complete robot. Targetmasters were small robots that transformed into guns; each gun could be used by most Transformers, but was generally associated with one particular full-sized one.

* FauxActionGirl: Arcee. Touted as "a forceful female Autobot", but she only fires her gun twice, and misses both times. Just to add insult to injury, being a girl AND pink meant Hasbro, who viewed ''Transformers'' as a boy's toy, canclled Arcee's toy during production due to the assumption that boys would see Arcee as a girl's toy. Still, that's better than what ''[[TransformersHeadmasters Headmasters]]'' did to her.

In 2002, a new comic was published by Dreamwave Productions, alongside an adaptation of the Unicron Trilogy (''[[Anime/TransformersArmada Armada]], [[Anime/TransformersEnergon Energon]]'', and ''[[TransformersCybertron Cybertron]]''); this is the first to officially use the title ''Generation One''. Simon Furman was brought back to write parts of it, as well as several lesser-known writers. It began as a set of mini-series which gave rise to a short-lived ongoing title. Ideas were taken from both the cartoon and the Marvel comic.
