    Do you have any other hobbies that don't have to do with Transformers? I have others hobbies which are:

    Video editing
    Photography
    Golf, even though the chance to play it rarely comes up.
    A slowly developing hobby for comics
    Watching shows and movies that aren't modern, not that I hate EVERY media of today but alot of it.
    Writing
    Voice acting

    EDIT: Added the last two hobbies at the list

    Cars (especially classics & muscle rods), Yugioh, pro wrestling, photography, comedy. I used to play Soccer & spend a good amount of time with my Pool table, too. I'm also sort of a Trekkie, and believe that stuffed animals need not ever be discarded.


    ... or yeah, and I'm also an aspiring blue meth cook like Heisenberg himself.

    Well, I enjoy toy collecting beyond Transformers, for one. I'm a mediocre photographer, and I enjoy a good deal of gaming. I'm also an avid cartoon watcher, if that amounts to anything.

    In addition to Transformers, I collect Lego sets, My Little Pony, and Star Wars figures. But other hobbies include:

    - Listening to and bitching about music.
    - Reading music essays and biographies.
    - Guitar.
    - Sexting Haloid.
    - Drawing to an extent.
    - Writing.
    - Reddit. Does it count? It does now. Reddit.
    - Stalking GFH.

    That about covers all I do in my free time. Aside from the obvious. *Wink*

    I'm into toy collecting in other brands, like hasbro's star wars figures, and Busou Shinkis for example.
    I enjoy photography and photo editing.
    I'm a star wars fan, and quite a brony.
    I'm a Warhammer 40k player (Space marines and tau)
    I play way more video games than I should (Over 300 hours playing team fortress 2...)
    I also love biking, fishing, and running.
    I'm thinking about getting back into photo comic making and stop motions, which I used to enjoy doing.

    My interests and hobbies are as follows...

    Comics (mostly stuff from DC and its Vertigo imprint)
    Other reading materials (classic Gothic fiction, primarily, such as H.P Lovecraft and Bram Stoker)
    Pen and paper games (World of Darkness, Dungeons and Dragons, Fighting Fantasy, Lone Wolf - that stuff whetted my imagination as a kid, and still does now)
    Military hardware/history (particularly from the Second World War era)
    Unexplained phenomena (cryptids, ghosts, strange disappearances, the works)
    Mysticism and the occult (practices from Mesoamerica, China, the Malay Archipelago, the Appalachians... you name it, I've delved into it)
    Plastic scale models (Gundam, military miniatures, mini 4WD race cars)
    Music (anything from classical and New Age to metal and rock; I also play piano and bass)
    Martial arts (I love watching MMA matches, and have a smattering of Shaolin under my belt)
    Nature (I enjoy observing flora and fauna; David Attenborough is an idol of mine)
    Writing (I pen both original fiction and fanfiction of numerous genres)
    Drawing (my usual sketchy art style is inspired by Quentin Blake, although I can produce more refined work if I have the time)
    Toy collecting (I have an enormous menagerie of stuffed animals, plus stuff ranging from Lego to Kamen Rider)
    Computer and video games (hardcore Counter-Strike and Pokemon junkie, as well as an enthusiast of vintage games such as Battlecity, Alleyway and Centipede)

    I paint...watercolors, oil and acrylics...mostly landscapes, animals and florals.
    I design & create my own greeting cards, mostly for holidays, using dies and punches mostly, sometimes I paint them as well.
    When I lived in Mexico, I learned the metal art called Repujado...it's with German Silver or Mexican tinwork, with either designs that are for frames whether still life or landscapes.
    I can sew all types of fabric projects, but I don't have that much time anymore and I prefer the other hobbies first.
    Almost forgot...I love to do most types of beadwork and beading..making jewelry of all kinds..mostly necklaces and bracelets...a few earrings, again for bdays and holidays for the most part.

    Most of my hobbies actually cross over into TFs (2d and 3d artwork, writing), so I don't really "count" those into a discussion like this.

    My only other main interests include music (percussion, bass guitar, guitar), but I don't have a lot of time or opportunities for it at the moment. I really enjoy movies and TV shows as well. I have quite a few favorite movies and shows. With the addition of our DVR, I'm able to keep up with a few more TV shows than I have in years past.

    -Reading comics. Mostly the big 2, though I do read stuff that the independents put out.
    -Watching movies. I'm an avid movie goer and would love to work in the industry one day.
    -Watching cartoons. I love cartoons and I watch a lot of them, though do watch select live action shows like Firfly and Star Trek: TNG.
    -Playing video games. I love video games and getting immersed in rich interactive worlds.
    -Writing. I do like to write the odd story and it's one of my many talents.
    -Listening music. I'm a really huge fan of rock and roll and listen to bands like AC/DC and Metallica a lot, and I also listen to podcasts a lot.
    -Creating funnies comics. This something I started doing a while ago and I really enjoy it.
