Transformers

The second Transformer‘s movie, Revenge of the Fallen opens in theaters on Wednesday.

The Transformers franchise began as Hasbro toys, morphed into a series of comics, a TV series and then to the big screen. The TV and movie versions in turn spawned books and graphic novels. This summer, yet another Hasbro toy will be featured in a movie, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. For more on Hasbro’s movie strategy, see the NYT story, The Movie Industry’s New Playthings.

The official movie adaptation graphic novel is on the NYT Graphic Books Best Seller list at #9.
