I've been harboring a secret for awhile now and I feel it's time to come clean. I don't know all that much about Transformers lore. Yes I was a kid that was 7 in 1984 and watched the cartoons. But it was always more about the toys that I had, or the toys my friends had that I was jealous of. I got a little older and I strayed away for a long long time. I always seen Transformers on the shelves and was like, "That would be cool to buy.", but never did. The 07 movie came out, and I didn't see it in the theater. I didn't even buy the toys for a while. My coworker wanted the concept Bumblebee cause he was a car guy. So while my wife was out at Walmart she found it and bought two, One for me and one for him. And with that one purchase I entered the fandom. With that purchase, I went apeshit. I bought anything I could find, and me and the kids played with them every night. The thing is, when Galvatron came out in the classics series, everyone was like "This is awesome!" I had no clue who Galvatron was. Now with the recent homages of Bludgeon and Mindwipe, I am out in the dark again. I pick up all the toys though because they look cool and because of the engineering behind them. But back to the history thing, when I listen to WTF@TFW and Gogdog starts talking about storylines, I feel left out. But they start talking about the toys again and it's all good. I stay out of a lot of the subforums because of my lack of knowledge. I am slowly educating myself as each new homage comes out, but really don't have all that much interest to go back and find in depth storylines. Plus when I am playing, I have lots of fun making up my own story lines as I go along. Thanks for reading.
