    Hello Fellow Transfans,

    My name is Nelson Ribeiro, and I have some awesome news (for me at least) I've been a Transformer's fan since I was a little boy at a department store late one night just before closing, watching an employee putting out new toys for the next day. I saw for the 1st time what I'd later know as Optimus Prime & Megatron. I beeged my mom to buy them because I thought I was the 1st kid in America to ever see these toys. My mom saw the price and bought me Turbo from the GoBots instead. Anyway, that night started what would be a lifelong obsession with Transformers. Through, Transformers I also began reading comic books and came to know all things MARVEL. Now, thankfully I am lucky enough to say I have a TF collection that's too large for my apartment, & I'm lucky enough to work for MARVEL. MARVEL is the greatest place to work. PERIOD. Want proof? Well they know how big of transfan I am so what do they do? They make my birthday the official designation for the transformers universe!

    So this post is to share my great news, and thank everyone in the transformers community for keeping this hobby/lifestyle alive, active and fun for so many years!

    Special Thanks to Mike Fichera, Jeff Christiansen, and Jeff Youngquist!

    Until all are one,
    Nelson Ribeiro

    Cool story bro! :thumbs2: 
    you have inspired me with the pic of your truck. I will be in the market for a new car and with the g1 accurate decals you have convinced me to get a car similar to a decepticon (probably a stunticon) and do it up like you did!

    So is that September 12th or December 9th, 1974? You're about half a year older than my little brother.

    Congrats, btw.

    So is Spiderman the only marvel hero in Earth 91274? How does Circuit Breaker's Secret Wars appearance fit in? ITS YOUR UNIVERSE, YOU NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS.

    I bet that one jerk eats all the donuts while the other just sits there without contributing anything to the meeting.

    Congrats, dude! ^_^

    Just out of curiosity, is this how Marvel numbers/organizes all of its different continuities? Or was this just something as a perk for you?

    Great! Now, Miles Mayhem knows my secret identity! Thanks a lot! Well, maybe Vanessa Warfield will stop by so it won't be too bad!

    Hmm. good question! I wonder how many other realities have secret numbers in them! Marvel's 'main' reality is Earth-616, so I'll have to see if either Jack Kirby or Stan Lee were born on June 16th!

    Well I have a few questions.

    I a in no way calling you a lier but as far as I know, Marvels official designation for their alternate universe in which the TF's come from is "Earth Transformers" while the UK stories took place in Earth-120185.

    So just when did they change it to your birthday offically???

    And its cool you work at Marvel.

    I worked there in the early 90's.......mostly in the file room.

    I'd have to be lower than an insecticon's belly to make that up! Click on the link. Then do a search. It's there. It's official as of today. (That's why I posted it!) I actually know some people who worked in the file room in the early 90's. We should talk!!!
