    Just a silly thread to catalog/entertain with Kid's observations about Tf media. Searched but couldn't find one.

    Adorable, smart, or bizarre, just report!

    My 5 year old has seen BW and explained the whole concept to his mom saying that Optimus Primal "was an ape though he's supposed to be a truck."

    As a reward he got to see MTMTE today and I watched the opening with him.

    "Wheeljack is cool because he doesn't have a mouth and his ears glow when he talks."

    my 7 year old nephew thinks G1 is better than the movies " because Optimus Prime doesn't try to take faces "

    My 3 year old son saw soundwave turn into a tape deck and "thats just silly"

    After watching my G1 DVD's my 7 year old god son asked "why doesn't some just crush megatron when he turns into a gun?" On beast wars "how does being a giant rat hide you?" and my favoret on Cyberton "why doesn't some one just shoot out the key before they get to plug it in?"

    I don't have any young siblings or cousins to brainwash, but I'm keeping an eye out on this thread. I love FatalT's stories about his girl, they're awesome. :D

    My 3 yr. old thinks Soundwave transforms into a box and Ravage is a "doggy". He can actually transform them both.

    He refers to Thundercracker as the blue Starscream and Acid Storm as the green Starscream.

    He loves to play with classics Bumblebee and play WFC BB on the game.

    WHAT is these kid's obsession with Bumblebee anyway?

    He's young. Yellow. Turns into a cute car. Is friends with the main human protagonists... Same principle goes for Hotshot.




    I don't get it either.

    Last Friday 2 classes of 5/6 year olds came to our art studios for a class trip. When the
    2nd group came upstairs their teacher asked "do you see colors, do you see shapes?" one little boy blurted out " I see a Transformer named Ultra Magnus" of course I went right over to him and we talked robot.. apparently his father is a fan :thumb  I was surprised how much he, and another little boy knew about G1.. I'd wrongfully assumed kids only knew of or cared for the Bay movies. Either way, a grand time was had by all.. especially me!
    :) 

    Fun!

    The boy who knew Ultra Magnus. I asked a 2nd child who was wearing a Bumblebee t-shirt to pose with Scourge but he'd have no part of it :lol

    My two year old who loves cars likes Transformers because so many turn into automobiles, to him Prime is himself when he turns into truck mode but he's just a robot the rest of the time lol!

    Stupid Kid that's not Ultra Magnus! just kidding that's a great story, its always great to find a young one who has a classical education beyond the nonsense that's aimed at kids these days.

    If I have to watch one more episode of Chowder with my nephew i'm gonna crack!
