Hasbro continued to focus on their phenomenally successful toy line, the Transformers, on page 78 of the 1986 Toy Fair Catalog. After their debut in 1984, the Transformers became one of the most successful toy lines of all time. With the assistance of Marvel, Hasbro successfully blended the ingenuity of Japanese engineering with the creativity of American comics and cartoons. This venture had become so successful that the Transformers made it to the silver screen in 1986.
