    I recentl started datting and all signs point for this to be steady relationship. My question is, how do you told your gf that you collected transformers and what was her reaction?

    Easy, I said, *pointing to TFs* "I get lots of these, or you get none of this." *pointing at crotch*

    Just be honest, if she's cool with it, great. If she becomes a fan too, fantastic!

    Well in my case I hadn't really started collecting when I met my wife. I had my old G1 toys from when I was a kid, but I wasn't into tf's anymore. RID came out after we were married, so she didn't really have much of a choice. Once I had seen Transformers were vehicles again, my interest in them was rekindled. I haven't looked back since, much to my wifes dismay, lol.

    For your case, I would just say introduce them to her slowly. That way you can guage her reaction. Start with something small and just go from there.

    Just tell her when the opportunity presents itself, i.e. whenever the subject of hobbies comes up. It's not like it's against the law or sinful to collect TFs.

    When we were still going steady, I told my wife-to-be about my TF collecting, and she was like, "Oh wow! I have a few TFs, too!" It made my day.

    Yeah, this is like telling girls you're into anal sex or NASCAR or something else awkward to put out there.

    Just say, "Hey, I can't remember if I told you this, but I'm really into Transformers. It's a little ridiculous, but I don't know, I just like 'em."

    Then answer her questions, which she'll have (Really? How many? Really?), and it's all good.

    Is this even really an issue? It's not like you rape small animals or something.

    Plastic crack, as awesome as it is, is a legitimate cock block. Figure out how to make it a non-issue and you're golden!

    Once I told my girl about my collection, she kicked me out of the house and now I sleep outside and use my collection as a pillow...

    For me, the first movie-date I ever took my GF on was to Transformers a year ago, and she absolutley LOVED the movie! I told her about my collection afterwards, and she's alright with it...as long as SHE comes first. That's why she's threatening to cut my legs off if I don't take her to see TF:ROTF, but not like I wasn't planning to take her to the sequel, anyways, so I don't think I'll be wheelchair bound anytime soon:p

    NASCAR and anal sex isn't awkward. Especially as the same time, cause then you can both watch the race.

    Up front and honest is the only way to go. If she can't deal with it then she's not for you. As long as you don't let it totally drain your bank account and get in the way of bills and such it's a harmless hobby.

    In my opinion, it shouldn't even be a problem. Let's reverse the question. How would you feel if your gf told you she collects My Little Pony toys?

    I know I wouldn't care.

    If your girl really wants to cause a fuss over your hobby, then you might want to rethink the relationship.

    I build Gundams, have all sorts of DC & Marvel figures around my room, anime poster and wallscrolls, and I just got really into collecting Classics. My girlfriend doesn't mind. So long as she gets the loving and never feels second place to them.
