* TechnologyMarchesOn: In many ways. What the Transformers themselves had as technology then is fairly standard to us now, and in relativity, artists and writers have had to go to much greater lengths to make Transformers appear more advanced than we are.

Since Transformers first aired, the FCC has enforced stricter regulations around children's programming; among other rules, a program may not use on-screen talent or 'identifiable program characteristics' to advertise during or adjacent to the 'host' program, or display website addresses that do the same, even if the website contains non-commercial or program-related material. While FCC regulations have not substantially affected toy-related shows, they have largely curtailed the practice of ''creating'' a toy-related show specifically to promote and market a toy.

** The concept of rubsigns (originally a gimmick in and of itself) was one to its competitors and knockoffs. With [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ss9foBx67yo the commercial]] going out of its way to proclaim "Only the Transformers are '''real''' Transformers".

The current main series is an [[ComicBook/TheTransformersIDW ongoing book set]] three years after the events of "All Hail Megatron". The series is written by Mike Costa, and features the return of Don Figueroa as artist. However, the positive fan reaction to Figueroa as an artist was quickly diminished when he revealed a new, vaguely [[Film/{{Transformers}} movie]]-ish art style that has been the subject of very violent InternetBackdraft. The main series is accompanied by several concurrent mini-series, such as solo stories focusing on Bumblebee and Ironhide, ''ComicBook/TransformersLastStandOfTheWreckers'' and the CrossThrough ''Infestation''.

Furman's stories were followed by ''[[TransformersAllHailMegatron All Hail Megatron]]!'', a 16-issue maxi-series. The first twelve issues were written by Shane [=McCarthy=] and take place on an Earth under Decepticon control. This was an attempt to draw in new fans who were put off by the complexity of Furman's series, though sales have been largely unchanged and fan reaction has not been kind to some of the changes introduced. For example, many 80s characters in this series were given modern altmodes as part of the whole "stealth" aspect, but reverted to 1985 designs for ''All Hail Megatron''. A particularly egregious case is Astrotrain--under Furman's run, one of his altmodes was a modern train, but [=McCarthy=] reverted him to the steam train he had used in the cartoon, which was anachronistic in 1985!

* {{Crossover}}: The ''Transformers'' comic book had several crossovers with ''GIJoe'' and one with Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}}, not to mention the appearance of several characters in other continuities, like DeathsHead and Octus.
