1985 Transformers

Posted by:

Our 1985 Transformers Section (and 1984)  has been revamped and amped with many new additions!

* Instructions from our collection have been painstakingly scanned, uploaded and linked for every toy of that year -also accessible via our Instructions Archive.
* Toy Reviews are now linked and accessible for for each 1985. -accessible in the Review Section.
* Every character page (like Swoop for example) has been given the "jump box" treatment, meaning each page has a header with links to the character page, that toy's instructions page, reviews and tech specs (coming soon!)
* Code has been cleaned up so it should load faster and more consistently on every browser type.

Lest you think we've been sitting idle lately, let us set the record straight!  We've been busy scanning EVERY instruction pad we have from our collection.

--I would also like to extend a special thanks to Chris Reed and his own The Transformers Racetrack, for helping  fill in many of the gaps in our database.  The vast majority of images are scans from our own collection, however the instructions when printed on card backs came from his most excellent site.  Thanks for the assist hombre!

Stay tuned folks, lots more to come!

Sorry Sabr, your comment from earlier got deleted due to a technical glitch. What was your concern you expressed?

Actually, my site is "FortMax's Transformers Instruction Archive". The Transformers Racetrack is the site that most of the instruction scans originally came from.

Also, 1984 Megatron had a single-panel sheet that showed how to connect the attachments in gun mode.

Also also, the Omega Supreme thumbs aren't showing.

Also also also, the scan you have listed as "Devastator Giftset" is actually the sheet that came with the carded Constructicons.

Thanks for the plug.

Good improvements, I must say! Fortmax, you've got a pretty cool site, what with all the links about the extra transformations on figures and hidden storage features, and the name comparisons between series.

Okay, I'll try to remember what I wrote:

Something puzzles me. You know how each year's page is split in half: the left side has the show's episodes/comic's issues, and the right has the toys listed.

Well, sometimes when I click the link to this 1985 page, then click away from it (via either the Back button or some other link), and then click back to the 1985 page, something weird happens. Instead of the episodes/issues being on the left and the toys being on the right, both sides half the episodes/issues on them an the toys are no where to be seen. Frankly, this doesn't happen often, but is this a small glitch or something?

Still no review pages for the 2008 Activators?
