It was back in 2007 when director Michael Bay brought Transformers to the big screen for the first time and was based on the toys created by Hasbro and Tomy.

The movie made stars of actors Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox and won over critics and audiences as grossed $709 million worldwide.

Revenge of the Fallen and Dark Side of the Mood followed in 2009 and 2011 and brought the story of Sam Witwicky to a close. The franchise is one of the most successful of all time with the third film breaking the $1 billion barrier.

A fourth instalment is set for a 2014 release and will see Mark Wahlberg take over the lead role as the franchise is set to be taken in a new direction.
