    We need to move to DEFCON 1 people! This is serious!

    She wants to get me something after Christmas and I joked that I need a transformer and she... didn't know what it was.

    Now it's not that she didn't know that it was a toyline but there was a movie and stuff. Plus it's Transformers

    :lol 

    This is just a jokey thread.

    Don't scare me like that! :stick: 

    This is Defcon 2 at best. Defcon 1 is Star Wars.

    OK, that's actually true.

    It's alright people! DEFCON 2. I think she didn't even notice that there was a film this year...

    Wait...then she DOES know Transformers. Thread title is misleading, I request a lock AND an IP ban.

    No she actually doesn't. She didn't even know about DOTM. I'm just wondering that with things like adverts how people can't hear about anything these days.

    I think you're trying to say "she's not a die-hard fan, like I demand the rest of the world to be".

    So you've been here since 2009, you're collecting Transformers toys, and yet somehow your girlfriend is still completely oblivious to your hobby?

    How long have you been dating?

    Not at all. It like I hate Rhianna but I know who she is even though I don't listen to any of her music.

    What I'm getting at is you SAID she knew it was a toyline, that's enough to "know" or at least be "aware". I'm now assuming you mean JUST the movies.

    Only 4 weeks :lol 

    I'm only wondering though, Transformers is becoming this really big franchise - well bigger so I'm wondering how people are "oblivious" to it. I guess I may not be speaking about Transformers in general. Even people I knew who didn't really know much about it knew who Bumblebee was. In the same way I can quote a Star Wars reference and most people would understand.

    I think it's the fact that I who is a fan who has witnessed the fast growth of this brand yet it still remains unknown to some.

    Simple show her a group of transformers you would like to have and tell her to pick one out for you for Christmas.

    And while you are there at the toy story you can educate her on the subject.

    That's all.

    Us women do it all the time; we give Christmas lists out ever year. Its fool proof.

    Kill her.








    In all seriousness, I know the feeling. My girlfriend wanted to get me something for my birthday/channukah/christmas

    and y'know, she just didn't/doesn't know what to get me, and i'm just sitting here like "Uh... you don't have to. =D I'll get you stuff, don't worry about it!"

    Sad part is, really do want to get presents from her, because i'm a greedy cunt like that but... I just wouldn't know what to tell her, because most of my needs/wants are expensive.
