    Contrary to popular belief, there's more to Florida than tourists, retirees, hurricanes, and an embarrassing public school system. There's also a darn fine Transformers fan community that has really taken off over the past few years, thanks to the relationships built on the Florida Sightings boards here at TFW2005.

    The members of Florida Sightings have developed into a fun little group of friends and acquaintances, ready to help one another out in a variety of ways... whether it's locating an elusive figure or just brainstorming ways to thwart scalpers, someone's always got your back. We've got casual collectors, uber-hardcore collectors, and folks that have gone above and beyond to support the brand. Apparently, we've also got a lot of people who struggled with Alternators Grimlock. :lol 

    We thought it might be fun to create this virtual get-together and introduce ourselves to the rest of the TFW community. Feel free to post questions, etc… (but please don't quote the entire post!)

    And, in no particular order, I give you the Florida Fan Feature!

    Job/career: Artist/Toy Designer

    Favorite TF line(s): Beast Machines ( I know, and don’t care)
    Favorite TF toy(s): Movie Arcee, at the moment
    Favorite TF cartoon(s): Beast Machines (Really, I don’t care)
    Favorite TF character(s): Starscream

    Years collecting: Ugh.. On and off, twenty years
    Any specific focus to your collection: Not really, just looking for solid toys. The G1’s are right in there with movie figures
    Any special or unique items in your collection: Most of mine have custom paint applications, so all of them are pretty unique. Other than that, all I have that’s kind of rare is the Primus with Unicron’s head..
    If you were away from TFs/collecting for a while, what brought you back: Armada. I was a big fan of the crazy, beefed-up alt-modes. At the time, it was a novelty, and I was happy to see Transformers going back to vehicles (I didn’t dig RID; the toys reminded me of BW, and I didn’t like that aesthetic)
    Other items/toylines you collect outside of TFs: Designer vinyl, the occasional Marvel Legends, lots of toys by Mezco and SOTA, like Hellboy and Street Fighter (everyone needs to go preorder Darkstalkers!), Toyvault plush; just about anything that looks cool, really, as long as I’m familiar with the source material..

    Special memory of TFs (childhood): ‘Making terrain’ with furniture cushions, and marching Grimlock around on it..
    Special memory of TFs (adult): My girlfriend giving me Unicron for my birthday.

    Special contributions or involvement in the fandom: I do a lot of custom paint-work for friends. I’m also designing a line of designer toys based on the Transformers aesthetic. Just recently, I’ve commited to dog-earing the package-corners of rare Transformers that I find, to dissuade scalpers from grabbing them up and allowing actual fans to get a chance to grab them up.

    TFW username: Wingsbr

    Origin of your user name: I’ve always been a fan of TF Jets, starting with my first transformer, G1 Jetfire. I had gotten into collection a few of the Beast Wars line and dropped out for a few more years. Then I saw Wingsaber on Cybertron and it’s been all good since then.

    If you were away from TFs/collecting for a while, what brought you back: I collected some beast wars back in 97-98, but I got out of it after only a year or so due to financial difficulties. =( Fast forward to 2006, I was ironing one morning and Cybertron came on TV and I saw Wingsaber and he transformed into the A10 and I was lovin it. So, I started an exhaustive search to find this transformer and I told myself I only wanted him and that’s it. Well if anyone remembers, Wingsaber was one of the hardest to find out of that line so while I was looking for him I ended up seeing and buying other ones I liked. The rest is TF history and I’m now up to 212 and I’m still going.

    Onesock was the first person who responded--that's more or less the order they're in.

    You know ams, you might be on to something here. These Virtual Conventions seem to be a lot less work than anything I've hosted. :D

    Overhaulimus, you've been added.

    I'm going to be away from the boards for a few days, so won't be able to post any others for a while--but keep sending them if you'd like to participate.

    And try to generate some discussion in the thread to keep it active! :thumb
