    I don't know if this has been done before but I just wanted to know how some ofyou were introduced to transformers. Just to go go back and bring memories. I was introduced to transformers when I got a deluxe 2007 Barricade. Good times. How were you introduced to tformers?

    For the umpteenth time, CYBERTRON.

    God, I was dumb back then. I grabbed every Transformer I saw, now I have Voyager G2 Optimus, some random repaint of that mechanical version of BM Megatron, etc etc.

    I am Gingerchris, member of TFW and poster in this thread. Fabulous Transformers fandom was revealed to me the day I held aloft a friend's G1 Sidewipe in 1984 and said "What is this awesome robot car toy? I have to knowwwwww!"

    Got waken up for school one morning and was watching some cartoons before the bus came. Happen to watch the very first episode of Beast Wars back in 1996 and just loved it.

    I may have watched some BW, but never really got into TF's until the '07 movie. I had one little legends class like figure that was a dark green S.U.V that had the autobot symbol on it but I never knew who or what it was. I still don't know who he is after all these years.

    I got the G2 Dinobots when I was little, though I had no clue about the tie-in fiction at the time. I was all about dinosaurs back then.

    I got a few more figures during the Beast Wars (specifically, 3 of the Predacon Fuzors and the Manta Ray McDonalds TF) and occasionally watched the cartoon. Don't know if I actually ever connected the two, though. I knew there was a large BW toyline and had a few on my Christmas list, but I was still very much about dinosaurs and TFs ended up taking backseat to Jurassic Park.
    Then Beast Machines came out and I was all "Munky not Trukk".

    Then the '07 Movie hit; that was what really sucked me in. While not still not animals, the robot modes (especially the Decepticons) were exotic enough to draw my attention. Since by then I had started buying stuff myself (and since I was no longer all about dinosaurs) I've been able to keep myself interested in the line for much longer.

    I grew up watching Beast Wars. Still don't understand the hate for beast modes, and I probably never will.
