    Can you capture the video with your PC?

    I actually looked for photos last x-mas, but the only ones I could find was me opening up some Ertl tractors and Fireball Island :(

    I've got a pic of one of my cousin's getting an Ultra Magnus in '86 ( I wasn't born until like 6 years later). I'll look for it tonight.

    Haha! No he didn't. My brother got Optimus Prime - it just wasn't in the picture. He does look pretty pleased with his Connect Four though.

    I'm just pissed Santa bent the flap on my Soundwave box (kidding - of course!)

    Here's the only pic I got of me!

    BOO YAH!

    Oh, and to the guy with the VHS problem, find a computer that has a composite input (red, yellow, white inputs) and plug the VCR into the computer and capture with Windows movie maker, or Quicktime if you are on a mac!

    Damn, earlier this year I was busy scanning billions of family photos into my computer. Sadly, no pictures with Transformers. But, I did come across a picture of my oldest brother building one of my very first radio controlled trucks. I know it's not a TF, but I'll post it soon.
    The picture was taken during our Xmas vacations at my grandmothers home in Miami back in the 70's.

    I actually have a VHS tape of me talking about & reviewing several transformers toys that got released in the 1988. I think I was about 4 or 5 years old at the time. the vhs tape is around somewhere in my parents house. next time I visit my parents house,I'll ask where the VHS tape is.

    I know there's a pic of me opening G1 Prime, Christmas 1985, at my parents' house. I'll have to dig it out next time I'm visiting. :D

    I think the closest thing to a photo of me opening presents has to be me as a kid, wearing the Voice Changing Optimus helmet. However, I have been trying to find that pic for years. I believe it was for halloween, even painted my face a blue metallic color.

    *sigh* all these old memories I have been brining up today!
