Howdy once more, folks. I feel a bit awkward about asking such questions, but I suppose I might as well, due to that I'd like to get into the fandom a little deeper. I basically grew up on Beast Wars, so I've always been a Transformers fan, but, well...Godzilla came first Now that the Big Gray Guy is on his third hiatus, I wanted to get back into the Transfandom...however, I have a few questions. Call me a n00b if you want, but I just like to be able to read board posts without scratching my head. 1. What is a "gestalt"? A type of combiner? 2. What the slag is "kibble"? 3. ...are there any Cybertronian curse words other than "slag" and "pit"? 4. Exactly how many TF television series are there total? (Japan AND US...OVA's excluded) 5. Is there any indication as to what happened between the end of the Great War and the start of the Beast Wars? 6. What is considered the end of the Great War? 7. Are there any other Transfan terminology I should be aware of? Thanks!
