Hi there. This is my first post on TFW 2005, so I wanted to make it important. If anyone here is also on HISStank, you already know the story, but I will repost it here; "As some of you know, I had (thank God for past tenses) cancer, and because of which, I was in the hospital with nothing to do but play video games, watch tv, and visit HISStank with a laptop. While I was there, I met a 6-year-old boy named Mark (he liked it when I called him Marrky). Marky has leukemia. He was pretty quiet, and I did my best to befriend him. I love kids (growing up, my mom was a daycare provider, and now I'm going to college to be a teacher), so I felt bad that this little guy would be in such bad straights. He got to talking here and there, but he wasn't very open. Understandable, considering his condition. But one day, something happened to lift Marky's spirits; He came to visit me, and I just happened to be reading some GI Joe comics (GI Joe vs Transformers by DD, I believe), and when he saw the pictures, he asked about them. I told him about it, the characters like Snake Eyes, Hawk, Duke, Roadblock, Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow, Destro and others. Soon I was showing Marky all sorts of GI Joe comics, and when my gf brought me a comic pack (21, comic colors) and an Armored CC she had found, Marky was HOOKED. At first he asked me why I played with toys at my age (22, btw), and I told him that as I got older, I liked to by them make them look cool, and then put them up. Well, Marky thought that was silly, but he loved playing with the Armored CC, SE and SS. Me and Marky bonded over GI Joe, and I got him some toys of his own (thanks, in part, to my gf and parents for doing the legwork). He had a ball. He thought Snake Eyes looked cool, but asked why he wears weird sunglasses, laughed when I called Destro "doorknob head", and asked why Gung Ho didn't wear a shirt, it gets cold outside. Well, Armored CC and Snake Eyes (V2) were his favorite, so I decided to do something special. I ended up giving Marky an original Armored CC and an old SE V3 (the re-release TRU had done a while back). He was amazed we had toys like that "when old people" like me were kids. Well, his parents loved me for all of this, and got something for me. I had told them I was looking for a couple of figs online (Spy Troops Barrel Roll, SE V4, blue Night Creeper) when I was showing Marky what I was looking for on e-bay, and I don't now how, but withing a couple of weeks, his parents had procured them all. Seriously, I told them no, but they said that they wanted to thank me for being Marky's friend. The point of all of this is this: GI Joe, while not technically having done anything, helped me make a friend, and I like to think helped a little boy. I was released from the hospital, but I still go to visit Marky everyday, and I try to always bring him something, from VvV figures from Dollar General to single pack figures and comic packs figures to just new guns and swords for his guys to have. And I'll tell you what, the nurses at our hospital have started calling Marky "Joey". He doesn't seem to mind." Now, this was the original post, so I should mention that not too long ago, the leukemia went into remission and Marky has gone home. However, the reason I am posting this on this website is to asky you all this; I'm going to try to introduce Marky to Transformers. Which series would you recommend? I have all of Beast Wars and Beast Machines on DVD, as well as the movie, so I'll start there. Anyone have any ideas what should be next?
