    well I'm writing a process essay for my english college class and me thesis is
    "Converting your typical girlfriend into a Transformer fan-girl, is a tricky but sometimes humorous process if the right steps are followed."

    anyone have any stories or suggestions I can include?

    Three easy steps:

    1. Start her off slowly with things that convert - reversible jackets, sleeper sofas, and 2-in-1 kitchen gadgets.

    2. From there, build her up with "functional" Transformers, like Music Label Soundwave or Takara's Device Label.

    3. Finally, bring her full on into the action figures.

    I think Dr. Phil would frown on the whole idea. You can't change people, but condition them.

    Don't forget BWII Galvatron for the S&M in her, CD Red Alert and G1 Micromaster Countdown. Give her all that in one TF McGangbang.....and she will collect whatever the hell you ask her to!

    Show her the Beast Wars cartoon. Particularly the episodes with strong characterization, but it works much better if she sees the whole series.

    Mechadoom has the right idea.

    Does she want to be a TF fangirl? If not, don't try and force her. Nobody likes being forced to do anything.

    The One True Way is hipster garbage. Get her some Mighty Muggs or Robot Heroes.

    Move up to Disney Label once things start getting serious.

    Yeah guys seriously, it's like a proven fact, girls don't like transformers. Do you guys collect Cabbage Patch kids? D: or My Little Pony's? (Silas is the exception ;) )

    Don't try to force it on her, but like the others said, start off slow. Like buy some random TF parapharnalia (bonus points for big words!) like a Mighty Muggs. Take her to ROTF, or I guess now you'd have to buy the DVD. Do thinks you know you'd both like, and do it in a Pavlov-esque way. Slowly make it more about Transformers as she starts to enjoy it more, I guess. But I can't stress it enough-DON'T TRY TO FORCE IT ON HER! Losing a girlfriend is bad enough as it is. It would be worse if it were because you tried to force toy collecting into her life.
