    I am a huge Transformer fan. I was born in the 70's. 1976 to be exact. I remember one weekend when I was young (not sure how old) my parents came home with my very first transformer. It was a small blue truck. His name was Gears. I was so exicted that day. I kept that little blue truck in such great shape and my parents saw that. My next transformer was Grapple and then Thundercracker I believe. I also remember having Red Alert, Jetfire, Ultra Magnus (hard plastic wheels, non painted face). I still have all of them except Red Alert.

    Back in 04 or 05 (not that great of a memory) I was at TRU and saw some reissues. I laughed at them thinking how childish they were (the toys that is) and then all of a sudden I starting having memories of my childhood. The great times... yet I didn't buy it. I believe it was a Ultra Magnus reissue. Some months later (6 or 7 or so) I really started to want that U.M. I went back and it was no longer there but they had a special on some of the cars. Buy 2 get one free sort of deal. I kept going back month after month and have been collecting them now for a couple of years.

    My collection has grown quite large. I was never into the 2nd generation or anything after it. I am however pretty big into the "Classic" line and the "Titanium" line and any "MP" line.

    I just wanted to say hi to everyone and let people here know a little about myself.

    BTW, my wife has tried to curb my TF's purchases.

    Anyhow, any tips or questions ask away.

    And, welcome. Don't let your wife getcha down. Best thing to do- set a monthly TF budget, and stick to it. That way, everyone agrees what you're going to spend.
