    I just ask because I have seen a ton of posts in which people admit to only ever transforming their toys one time or so. This baffles me since I transform my toys all the time. I'll just be watching something on my computer and pull a toy off the shelf at random and transform it into vehicle mode. Then again I have a MUCH smaller collection than some of the people I hear about on these forums, so maybe I can remember individual transformation schemes easier.

    Almost all the time. Unless I HATE the transformation. Like ROTF optimus.

    Whenever the mood strikes. Some I tend to avoid because the process isn't all that fun, and to me the point of having the toys is to have fun with them. But in general, I very frequently - at least several times a week - actually transform some of my Transformers.

    I probably transform Dirt Boss and Jolt the most. Along with Breakaway and Thrust...

    I usually TF some bots when I'm rearranging the shelves and/or doing a little dusting.

    I used to love tfing RiD Autobot brothers, but since I broke Prowl's door joint, I'm a bit apprehensive.

    Now ROTF ones get to be transformed quite often because they are out in the lounge room for anyone to play with. Except that Leader Primes are off limit to the guests.

    ROFLMFAO!

    If I didn't do a photocomic, I'd probably transform one every month or so. But since I do a photocomic, I do a handful a week. I spend way more time posing my stuff than transforming it.

    Someone will be transformed every day normally. I like to think of it as brain training.

    That's an interesting way to put it. :lol 

    I transform mine a lot... I tend to keep a bunch on my desk, and I try to rotate them with the ones on my shelves... I usually try to give them all equal attention, but I've been doing pretty poorly at that lately.

    All the time. The only toys I had that I never really transformed were Alternators because most of them were repaints and in all honesty were not that much fun.

    Quite frequently except for my Masterpiece Megatron which is a huge pain in the ass to transform so I leave him in robot mode. Thinking of getting the original G1 reissue Megatron to keep in gun-mode.

    This is one reason to have two of each figure. One in robot mode, and one in alternate mode.

    I think I transform mine fairly often. I usually skip around from line to line.
