They’re more than meets the eye
It’s been over a decade since the first Transformers movie, directed by Michael Bay, hit theaters back in 2007. It introduced a new generation to the massive alien robots that transform into cars, jets, tanks, and other vehicles. Throughout the franchise, the Autobots (good guys) have been repeatedly pitted against the Decepticons (bad guys) for the fate of the universe, with six total films in the franchise.
With that many movies comes a slew of unique robots and the variety of things they can transform into. It should come as no surprise that, ultimately, the Transformers franchise is the story of good and evil playing out over and over, with the good side emerging victorious every single time. Given that, we decided to put the spotlight on the Autobots. These intergalactic heroes have battled the force of evil and saved humanity time and again, even when humans made it clear they wanted nothing to do with the massive robots.
Take a look at our breakdown of every Autobot in the live-action franchise–and a ride based on the movies–thus far. And when you get to the end of the list, don’t worry too much. While we haven’t had a new film since 2018’s Bumblebee, there will surely be another Transformers movie at some point. After all, the series has made nearly $5 billion worldwide at this point, so there’s certainly still interest in the property.
