Transformers (2010) Checklist

After Revenge of the Fallen, Hasbro decided to release a catch-all Transformers line without any subtitles that contained both Movie-series toys (mainly toys that didn’t make it out as part of the Revenge of the Fallen line, as well as some new, improved moulds for show characters) as well as Classics/Universe style reimaginations of G1 characters. Confusingly, however, Hasbro also released two concurrent lines alongside it 2010’s Transformers – Generations and Power Core Combiners, with a lot of ‘Generations’-style toys being released as part of 2010 Transformers. The line is also often known as Hunt For the Decepticons (HFTD) and Reveal the Shield (RTS) among fans, referring to the two promotional subtitles that it had – generally more Movie toys were released in the HFTD portion, and more Classics/Universe toys in the RTS portion, but there is still a considerable amount of overlap.

Takara would shunt the Movie toys as part of ‘Autobot Alliance’ line, the legends class toys to the ‘Chronicle’ line (both covered lower down in this page), whereas it would combine the Classics-style toys here and Hasbro’s Generations and release them as the ‘United’ toyline (covered on the Generations page).
