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.
