    Does your fandom ever show itself in ordinary life? I've seen tats, bumper stickers, etc. Anyone have anything else interesting?

    Mine is amazingly coincedental . . . my son's name is Jackson Darby. And he was born years before Prime debuted. My daughter's name is Carleigh. When my wife realized there was a Carly in the G1 cartoon she thought she'd been snookered. :p

    -Your son's name is Jackson Darby.

    Buy him a blue motorcycle when he's old enough to drive.

    I would love to walk around in public with a hat with the Maximal symbol, they just don't make them as far as I know.

    Though I have plans to get new Maximal, Predacon, and Vehicon decals for my truck.

    I occasionally use the universal greeting when I meet new people.

    Maybe check your area for a place that offers machine embroidery. There used to be a shop here that would embroider stuff onto hats and bags and wallets and the like. You could take in a file on a flash drive and they'd load it onto the computer and set it running to stitch a one-off or as many as you wanted.

    Failing that the simpler but less cool option is get some of that iron-on transfer paper and print yourself one out. Or stencil the logo onto a hat with fabric paints.

    Are you trying to give your truck multiple personality disorder? Pick a faction man! :p

    I've got a TF t-shirt. I'm also planning to put an Autobot bumper sticker on my car, whenever I end up getting one, which probably won't be for a few years at least. I also wear lots of other geeky non-TF clothing.

    My workmates know full well I'm a Transformers fan, and I have Decepticon badges on my car.
