''Transformers Zone'', released in 1990, focused on bases and playsets. The story was primarily told through a series of story pages; there was also a single [[OriginalVideoAnimation OVA]] and one {{manga}} chapter, both of which gave somewhat different accounts of an event about halfway through the plot.

The story begins with the new Decepticon Emperor of Destruction bringing together nine of the most powerful Decepticon soldiers from previous series as his Nine Great Demon Generals. They destroy the planet Feminia, critically injuring Victory Saber in the process. He is rescued by new arrivals Dai Atlas and Sonic Bomber, and appoints Dai Atlas as new Autobot commander. Dai Atlas and Sonic Bomber then set out to defeat the Generals; teaming up with Road Fire, they form the Powered Masters, a team mighty enough to destroy Violen Jiger. Peace reigns for a time, but dark forces are gathering...

* YaoiGuys - Kain and Akira are frequently depicted holding hands, and in the OVA, there's a moment of one holding the other, both blushing when they see how close they are, but ultimately not moving away. The last of the story pages has them running through a field of flowers holding hands. It's never played as a joke, or made the subject of AnAesop about acceptance, either.

The Transformers Wiki lampshades the hell out of it and wonders why the the series stooped to ghastly anime stereotypes like those listed above after spending the previous series going out of their way to avoid them.

Following the release of ''TransformersVictory'', ''{{Transformers}}'' went into a decline in popularity as older fans lost interest and younger kids considered the toys yesterday's fad. As a result, the following toylines - entitled ''Zone, Return of Convoy'', and ''Operation Combination'' - would receive little media support. Since there is so little fiction associated with each, and since the stories segue pretty well into each other, all three will be dealt with here.
