    A friend of mine who I haven't seen since my stint on the east coast came to visit me... He just completed his masters and is going to be a teacher (yay!).. he finished up in Australia and will be going back to Canada after he takes a small trip to different places as a break.. anyway..

    He comes over and sees my G1 MP starscream.. and is blown away by how nice it is .. then he sees my alts and is blown away #2.. (I think it helped that I had one of his favorite models (the subaru) and now he wants to get the masterpieces and alternators..

    How awesome.. :)  .. this guy has been out of the loop for anything animated.. he just watches sports and cinema movies..

    THE POWER OF TRANSFORMERS COMPELS YOU

    Anyone else here infect an unsuspecting victim?

    I think I've managed to convert my brother's girlfriend's family into TF fans based on the fact they happened to come by when I was cleaning and I had a bunch of different series characters lying about.
    Ironically it was the G1 Turbomasters who got the most attention. Obscure G1 bots FTW!

    My wife hated Transformers when she met me. I just bought her a Beachcomber (her fave) as an extra birthday gift. You tell me. :)

    I'm so glad I never got into alternators. Collecting them would just kill my wallet.

    The more I try and get the woman into them, the more she just yawns and sighs.

    It's a good strategy though when you want them to go to bed so you can start opening stuff. I'll grab a package and just stare at it for a sec, and she usually leaves.

    Then it's sigh free opening bliss

    Ive infected many women... oh you meant with the love of TFs, sorry wrong thread.

    Actually I have started them about as young as you can get. A friend of mine just had a baby, so inaddition to getting they're new son (who will be two weeks old on Tuesday) a big ol' soft teddy bear, I got him a softimus prime. :lol  the mother loved it and was going to put it up on a shelf in his room till he was a bit older (35).

    I haven't found a man yet who will put up with the kinds of things that I like. I love my Transformers no doubt about it. But I need to find someone with whom I can share my love of Transformers with. :lol

    Not yet... since I'm pretty new at all this, but at least with my wise purchase of MP Skywarp, my family doesn't think it all just kiddy stuff (my Dad often marvels at how detailed Warpie's alt mode is ┬ŽD).

    Never infected anybody. I did help my brother revive his interest in Transformers though.
