The History of Transforming Robots! (abridged)
I know I'm not the #1 most knowledgeable person about Transformers on these boards, but it has been pointed out to me that I do have quite a large repository of useless knowledge when it comes to the general history of Japanese pop culture, toys and robots. Thus, I've taken it upon myself to provide this board with a historical record of the evolution of giant Japanese transforming robots for those who might be interested in such a thing. So here goes...
