    I found out one of my friends was a major G.I. Joe collector a while back ago, but no TF fans.

    It is. I met a bud of mine at school who's TF collection completely dwarfs my ENTIRE collection. He's pretty much responsible for getting me back into collecting Transformers. It is cool when you meet someone who shares your excitement for something important.

    I'm the only person who I know personally in this area (north of Detroit) that collects TFs. I have a few friends who are casual collectors, they have a few TFs but they buy a multitude of other things too (Power Rangers, GI Joe, Marvel, etc.). I'd like to meet another TF collector from around here. :)

    It's useful to know who the other Transformers collectors are in your area as it makes it easier to take out people competing for the same purchases as you. Erm... *hides sniper rifle*... I mean share information, sightings and swap/sell to each other.

    I know a few TF fans in my area, often met online, but sometimes from crossing paths in stores.

    I've only met a couple of TF fans in my 14 years of collecting.

    It's cool to run into them but then again my habits are mine alone and I don't go big into it with others.

    In my experience I have found that they are ALL nice people. The only issue is that being in the middle of being a fan I either out geek the other person or am out geeked by them. I have yet to find the balance.

    Other than running into a few people at my college who are familiar with TFs, be it G1 or the live-action movies, and meeting Maximus_Prime once in real life, I really haven't met any TF fans.

    Most of the fans here in Michigan live hours away from where I live, I practically feel like I'm the only one in my area who's deeply interested in TFs. Maybe when I transfer to and move onto campus at Eastern Michigan University, I might be able to meet and hang out with TF fans, but I doubt it, due to the fact that in real life I can be anti-social.

    I have one friend who is into Transformers, but he lives far away since I moved. I have met some collectors in the city I go to to buy toys, but no collectors here at my school. There ARE fans of the TFs (mostly due to movie and Beast Wars), at my school, but I don't know if any collect.

    It was thanks to this very great website that I meet the only other Transformer fan I know in all of Guadalajara.
