    We just took a trip to North Carolina and while there, we made a stop at the local Walmart.

    I of course wanted to stop in the toy section to check out the TFs. I wanted an extra deluxe ROTF Mudflap to display on my desk at work. While there, I saw the most prestine, untouched TF section ever. That's the benefit of looking at a Walmart in the middle of nowhere.

    All of the hottest ROTF figures were there including HA Sideswipe x2 as well as HA Bumblebees.

    While there, we were looking through all of the latest deluxes when my wife saw Deluxe Arcee. She was so excited to see this figure......she was amazed by this pink motorcycle.

    I have no interest whatsoever in ROTF deluxe Arcee mind you. She told me to put it in the cart because she wanted it for herself. My wife is a person who dislikes my TF collecting and isn't interested in them at all. She supports it though because she knows it makes me happy.

    I was shocked, excited, and amazed by this. My wife actually wanted a TF for herself!! WHOOO HOOO!! So far, she has now taken interest in the ROTF deluxe ice cream twins and Arcee.

    Has your anti-TF or non-TF collecting significant other ever bought a TF for themselves?

    THANKS for posting!!

    My girlfriend is a TF fan herself so I suppose this question doesn't really apply to me. :)

    No, but I have bought her Ravage and Movie 1/Black/Wonderfest Arcee because those are her favorite characters.

    My GF makes fun of me. I asked her to go to Botcon with me next year and she simply replied "I don't wanna hang out with you NERDS!" She supports me though . . . I think.

    I have something sort of similar.

    My fiance and I fight over faction. I'm pro Decpticons and he's pro Autbots(mainly the dinobots). However, every once in a while he'll get really excited about a Decpticon toy and we bicker about it every time. "You were just dogging them 10 minutes ago!" Sort of thing.

    My g/f has a Robot Heroes Ultra Magnus and Megatron. She also bought a girl's G1 Bumblebee shirt at Hot Topic. I might buy a set of minibots for her. She likes small toys (thinks they're cute).

    My girl liked my Universe/ Classics Darkwind when I first got it that I ended up giving it to her. Now she actually likes transformers. ;)

    My wife enjoys TFs, but doesn't collect or really even play with mine. But a while ago, she bought a G1 Grimlock for herself at a local comic store. Grimmy has an honorary, permanent place in the kitchen (where she wanted him).

    We found some G1 and RiD goodness at a garage sale a year or two back. She kept Sky-Byte, and at Botcon that year I found the missing parts he needed. She dug that line about him grabbing a live bomb using "his very gentlest bite" and still quotes it. :lol

    Not sure if this would count here or not, but my girlfriend hijacked my Animated Legend figures, she thought they were "cute" and wanted to keep them since I was considering selling them.

    No sadly. My wife fully supports my hobby but has no interest in it herself.

    Great story. Another one has been brought over.

    Next step, setting her up a TFW account. :D
