    I've been a fan since 2001(I was 8) when RID came out. I thought it was pretty cool, so I went to a local video store to find some released episodes. Instead, I found a movie called Transformers the Movie. I thought it was AMAZING. Armada then came out which propelled my interest. I've been a huge fan ever since. Although, I did go through a little bit of a hiatus between the beginning of Cybertron and the 1st movie.

    I grew up with Armada, I was like, 6 at the time and in Elementry when the movie came out, 2007, I have a terrible memory, but I first came with Dinosaurs, which lead to my liking of Power Rangers Dino Thunder, which made me like TF. So when Armada came out.

    I really got into Transformers after seeing the movies, and it was only after RotF that I started exploring the fan-forums and older series, so <5 years for me.

    I had a handful of TF toys growing up and occasionally watched the various cartoons (and mainly BW at that), though I wasn't really ever dedicated to the series before Bay's movies.

    Unofficially: 28 years (since 1984)
    Officially: 16 years (1996)

    to clarify, 'unofficial' refers to the kid who never %100 lost interest
