    I'm a closet geek. Between my 2 jobs an my other activities I don't think anyone wld peg me for a transformers collector. I like it that way though, it's a part of my private life that I like to keep private. Sides, I have all you guys that know.

    I've got my collection out in the den where people congregate for social events at our house. I'm very open and proud of my collection.

    I really don't care what others think about it. I aim to please myself, not the will of others.

    People are well aware of my collecting Transformers. With that being said, I don't enjoy telling people. People won't let it go. There are always comments about "wasting money," people constantly relating everything to Transformers, people cracking jokes ... it's not embarrassing, it's annoying.

    People usually don't even have to ask, I tell them. Still is an annoyance.

    Family knows, friends know, coworkers don't. When I'm at a store to buy something, I wont deny I'm buying for myself, but I don't advertise.

    I have a ROTJ poster and a few Star Wars items at my work desk - and a decpticon badge on most of the cars I've owned throughout the years. That's it as far as letting anyone outside of my family & friends know what's going on.

    If somebody asks me about it I'll tell anybody, but I'll only make a point to bring it up to my friends and family. :wink:

    If it's appropriate to the conversation at hand I won't ever hide the fact I collect- hell, in high school I had a bunch of the original spawn toys in package on my bedroom walls. I had friends who tried to give me grief, but the fact that it didn't bug me made it get old pretty quick for them (which is what I always tell my kids if ever confronted with a bully). It all comes down to confidence- be proud of who you are no matter what (unless you are one of those guys from collection obsession, those guys are weird)

    sums it up pretty good for me as well

    i worked at target for about 3 years, so it didn't take long before my purchasing habits were noticed, but most everyone had some form of plastic crack addition that i enjoyed working with, either toys, video games, magic cards or such.


    I also ware my Transformers 25th anniversary botcon shirt when i go out to the bar or vfw with my friends, but i also have the Airborne hat on at the same time so it balances out my ego :lol
