What was your favorite transformer as a kid. Mine was that armada optimus(deluxe)
G2 Optimus....he was the best OP toy from G2.
My G1 Starscream. Soundwave was a close 2nd - I'd have liked him more if he came with Laserbeak.
Trailbreaker, that guy was awesome
G1 Optimus Prime.
some people know them as combaticons. but you may call them....BRUTICUS
I remember as a kid we were really poor. I wanted a devastator as a gift one birthday worse then anything. So my poor mom and dad went out and bought me the KO Devastator.
I was a little brat and threw the worse tantrum because it was fake and I was so tired of us being poor. My dad got pissed and took it away from me. I remember the next day begging for it back. He taught me a lesson that day by not giving it back. I would play with my friends and always be sad that I didn't at least take the fake one.
When we finally started getting some money, I remember owning a Grimlock and a Wreck Gar. I loved both those guys, but Wreck Gar a little more because Grimlock was hard for me to Transform and I was always afraid I was going to break him.
Fast forward 20 years into the future. I see a MP Grimlock and have no idea what it is. I see it is $75 and argue why I should not buy it. I cannot pass it up and my collection started from there. My second figure, an original Devastator brought from a member here at TFW. Never really wanted the wreck gar again, but whenever I see some people post G1 pics of him, it always brings back memories. Those were the only 3 I ever had as a kid. Here I am as a grown ass man with 150+ and growing.
Oh, the toy forum.
Of all the TFs I had as a kid...well, more like of the FEW TFs I had as a kid...I think Countdown's rocket base saw the most play.
The fact that both the large manned turret and the blue control thingy broke their pegs might actually be the reason I sold it.
All I remember is wanting a Transformer that actually f***ing showed up in the comics!
I had the G2 optimus with the black trailer...it was my favorate toy for years until a young cousin took it without permission and left it in my driveway where it was diven over and smashed to pieces...
My favorite growing up was g2 optimus. Still have it and love it today.
...you do realize there's THREE G2 Primes, right?
Got a lot of favorites as a kid but ones I remember playing with a lot was Wheeljack and Grimlock.
Beast Wars original Dinobot.
G1 Ultra Magnus
Metroplex was mine. There was so much you could do with him!
This comment made me feel 100 years old
As for me.... probably G1 Scrapper. I loved the Constructicons!
g2 optimus... run it into the ground. i then used the trailer as a temporary storage for my matchbox/hotwheels toys. Fun times
Classics Jetfire (I'm only 17, and I got into TFs in late summer '06). I still think he's a really great figure. He looks excellent in both modes, whether armored or unarmored, and is proof that a figure can have great playability without having some kind of toyline-wide gimmick.
I have to go with Hot Rod, when I think back its the one figure I can fully remember having and playing with
