I have been a fan since 2007 (as you know due to the movies)
An actual fan? 16 years.
Probably since like 92/93 when I was maybe 5 or 6?
I'm fuzzy on the exact time, but it was pretty much a case of starting at a young age, and then getting reborn ever so often when shit like Beast Wars & the movies came out. The latter of which had more to do with the toys than the movies themselves (not a hater or anything though), but the idea of an ongoing interest with different peeks seems to describe it well.
The movies dragged me in.
RID, but I got more "serious" around Cybertron.
Since TFs were what everyone wanted back in 1984, and Transformers was the coolest cartoon on Saturday morning TV.
Ironically I got my first Transformer in '86.
RID got me into Transformers
Been there since the beginning. G1 back in 84.
Dinodigger and tikgnat you get a bro fist!
The foundation of my fandom was predominately 1984-1987, so I guess that's where it started. But I'm not sure if being a "fan" as a kid is the same as being a fan as an adult.
My adult fandom pretty much resurfaced around age 22, when some friends started playing on a TF MUSH for a lark. That got the nostalgia flowing.. but it wasn't till Armada that I started buying toys again... starting with Armada Nemesis Prime. It was a great figure, and I mostly blame it for re-igniting my robot collecting passion.
Since, G1 was on Sunday mornings.
Hm.... gonna be honest, I always thought that it was Saturday mornings.
Granted, that was in 91, but hey. I ran on old VHS recordings, G2 re-runs, and the movie
Start of the 90's when I took an interest in G1 (show) & G2 (figures)....then Beast Wars really had me hooked for life!
Off and on for almost 20 years, I never really "lost" my Transformers interest, and stayed relatively current on the media and toys all through Beast Wars and RiD.
But as a hardcore collector? Since Armada, 2002.
I've been a fan of Transformers since the Beast Era. I knew Transformers existed before that, but the aesthetic wasn't appealing to me until Beast Wars came about and shocked me out of my seat.
Unfortunately I wasn't alive for G1, but I used to wake up every morning at 6am for Beast Wars as a kid going to 1st grade... And ever since, I have been a fan... A/E/C were dark times though... Mostly because I didn't like the figure's gimmicks & lack of articulation & playability.. The series themselves were semi-decent though.
