    This is just a random question, but one I am curious for the answer.

    How many people on these boards are over 30, with a wife/girlfriend who is completely okay with their Transformer collecting?

    And by "okay" I mean they don't give you any grief, roll their eyes, or anything like that. Or they might even encourage or help out...

    Thanks for Reading!

    I don't meet all the criteria, b/c I'm just 24. But I figured I'd help your cause.

    My wife is alright with it. As long as the bills still get paid and we can still have fun.
    I'm in the process of giving up Hot Wheels... I think she'll be cooler after that.

    Im 26 and have a room full of stuff. My wife lets me be in the room when I want to hang out there. She'll lay with me when Im playing videogames. But right now she's been getting annoyed about me talking about what TF I still need.

    I'm 32 and my wife doesn't mind. She even helped me to display them and enjoy them better. She also likes to find good deals on Transformers for me.

    33 years old, with a wife and son. I rarely get grief about my collecting. Only time I do is if I obsess or fixate on my Transformer too much. Other than she helps me look for TFs at local stores, and even watches the movies or TV programs with me.

    On a side note my son loves the TFs and he currently collects the 2007 Movie TFs & the Classics TFs. :)

    29 next month, wife thinks they are cool. Got to tone it down (hence the selling) but will still keep movie, alts, MPs, and a few others. But at one point took up half my study/2nd bedroom. Funny thing, my mother-in-law loves them!

    I'm 29. My wife tolerates it, and mostly finds it amusing. I get the occasional eye-roll, but I don't mind. :)

    37, wife and 3 kids.:banghead: 

    I think my wife tolerates my collecting but she seems to enjoy the fact that our kids think it's so cool that Dad likes the same kind of toys that they do. Currently working on a G1 Soundwave costume for my oldest(8).

    I'm 32 (no kids) and my fiance thinks it's pretty cool that I have a hobby. :thumb  She never gives me any flack for collecting them. Everytime we go to Wally World, she always reminds that we need to go the toy section because I don't have a certain TF and we need to see if it's in. She also goes on line and looks for TF items from TFs themselves to other merchandise like clothing. I think she is cool with it because she has a huge Barbie Collection and I don't have a problem with it because it makes her happy and whatever makes her happy, makes me happy :D .

    Some of those dolls are worth several hundreds of dollars :eek: .
