inspired in part by this thread http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=111079 By "adopted", I mean have you ever taken a robot toy that was not an official part of a Transformers toyline, and either because you liked it enough or thought it fit in unusually well, decided to include it in your collection as a "Transformer", perhaps even sticking a faction sticker on the thing to seal the deal? Here's a few toys where I have done that: Bandai Macross7 'Stealth Valkyrie', which became a nifty Decepticon counterpart to Jetfire, named "Sky Shadow" Takara (Sonokong, actually) Brave "Death Garry". - Well, that was actually a Transformer before, so it's not a big leap to make. Knockoff of Brave "Fire Dagwon" (747 with ambulance & fire truck), now an Autobot "Skylift". Thought about adopting, but didn't officially: Knockoff Power Rangers Turbo Rescue Megazord Those little limbs/ Ambulance nurse robots from 'Machine Robo Rescue'. And now, you!
