Timelines is a Transformers franchise that belongs to Fun Publications. Rather than having an ongoing year-to-year story from convention to convention, Timelines is a annual series of unconnected stand-alone stories that take place in pre-existing continuities or possibly in new ones unexplored.

The "Timelines" banner has not been universally applied to all of Fun Publications' fiction, as the comic strips published in the Hasbro Transformers Collectors' Club magazine are not labeled as part of the franchise.
