    Hi folks!

    My name is kenny... and I'm a transformers addict...

    I'm 27 now... but have had transformers in my life since..... 1985?

    I used to have a huge collection.. but gave them away believe it or not! I really really really wish I'd put them in the attic! But no.. gave them to local kids..doh even had 99% of the uk comics too :( 

    First ever transformers were Rachet and Hoist..

    I started collecting again about 2 years ago - when the G1 reissues came out - unfortunately I had to sell them due to finances...but I've always had a passion for them.

    I came accross this site a while ago - I have been lurking and checking out the collections and kitbashes! Excellent stuff...and I decided to start another collection ... one I will keep!

    I have started with a reissue Soundwave with ravage and laserbeak... and I think I have a air-raid knocking about somewhere too.

    Then I hit ebay.... and this has a small story to it..

    When I was 7, the local John Menzies (basically books toys and newpapers etc store) was running a competition... for a G1 fortress maximus... I must have entered the draw a 1000 times... but I never won... and I've always been gutted about it..

    I was browsing the G1 toys on ebay... came accross an incomplete fort max... and I think it was listed wrong or something - end of the story is I won it.. and now scouring the Net for the missing parts...

    I've not taken delivery yet but I can't wait!

    So thats my story... I'm a 27 year old man who could probably name any G1 transformer and I know the movie word for word... sad maybe - but hey I'd rather be addicted to this than drugs or alcohol!

    Thanks for reading... now who has fort max parts going cheap!! lol

    Welcome!

    I see this kind of hello threads fairly often and always wonder how many will actually hang around. This is a tough place ;) 
    Hope to see you around.
