    I took my 6 year old son to buy his first Transformers today. He's had them bought for him before, but today he took his birthday money, and bought them himself(Wheelie and Soundwave) I'm so proud to have contributed to the next generation of TF nerds!

    One of us! ONE OF US!!!:lolol 

    The next step is video games.

    Also LEGOs. LEGOs rock and have a nice return value if you decide to sell them in the future.

    As long as the idea of regular objects turning into robots remains cool, Transformers will always live on.

    That's awesome. I was in Walmart today looking around the Transformers and there was a family and two of the little kids were going crazy trying to figure out which ones they were gonna get. It was cute seeing a new generation in action.

    My son is due Oct 1, and I'm already looking forward to turning him into a Transformers fan. I even got him his first Transformer (Aero-bot) and I'm probably going to pick him up a Softimus Prime when I get the chance.

    Heh. I remember, many years ago, my Dad gave a Transformer to my older bro for being brave and enduring a vaccine. I also got one (probably to prevent me from whining, since I wasn't even sick). Those were our first transformers, and awesome ones at that: Astrotrain for me, Blitzwing for my brother.

    It just went on from there.

    My six year old niece likes both TF and PR, but luckily she's entirely happy with cheapo PR figures from car boot sales because when they battle she smashes them together. I'd certainly not be buying her those brand new to do that with. Strangely she doesn't smash her TF figures together, but that's nice because no-one wants to see that done to a poor TF.
    Of course, this is also the child that dressed her Powerbots TF:A Bumblebee in a pink dress, baby harness thingy (complete with two babies) and a yellow summer hat.

    Some of my first transformers were powermaster prime and some micromasters. (the autobot millitary patrol) I used to stare into their molded details and pull basic mechanical workings, extra weapons, cooling systems, communications gear, and even their personalitys from these simple lines.

    ROTF soundwave may have a incredibly simple transformation but one of the main things I hope this generation enjoys with that figure are all the artistic lines and translucent panels that utilitze ones imagination subtlely.

    I hav'ent found wheelie yet so your kid is a step ahead of a old collector rustbucket like me. Kudos.
