Default 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...

An Abridged History of Transforming Robots

I. Background and Roots

II. Japanese Pop Culture Origins

III. Giant Robots Appear in Japan!

IV. The First True Transformer and the "Shogun" Invasion

V. Transistion

VI. Transformers Beginnings

VII. Robots in Disguise!

VIII. The Continuing Japanese Invasion and "Robotechnology"

IX. TV, Movie and Video Transformations

X. New Visions and Changing Landscapes

XI. Revitalization

XII. Transformers For Everyone In the 21st Century

XIII. Global Robotic Revolution
