    How long has it been since you even bought a new transformer and played around with it?

    Last time I had my last Transformer was the Landmine Pretender back in the day and that was it.

    Nowadays I'm trying to buy one of the Tranformers movie figures such as Barricade or whoever and just play around with them to see how complicated it is to transform them back and forth

    I buy new transformers regularly. I transform them to altmode and back, pose them the way I think looks cool (within the limits of shelf space), and put them on a shelf. I regularly take them down to repose or adjust or whatever.

    Despite being a Transformers fan during 1984, I don't consider myself an "old timer". Maybe I'll revisit this thread in 25 more years? By then, maybe I'll have an Exo-suit.

    (I transform Transformers quite regularly.)

    Hey, who you calling old timer? Oh and Transformers Armada were the last ones I really played with. As much as I hate the series I actually really like the toys.

    its been awhile since i transformed one. i guess it was the city commander upgrade for ultra magnus i got about a month ago.

    i will adjust a shelf/repose characters about once a month when i dust it off. but i pretty much only transform them when i put them away for a while or take them out for display.

    ive got these out at the moment. im waiting to display the fansproject not-insecticons and heavy labor for a while before i change these shelves to something else. (GI Joe)

    DoTM Roadbuster but just because I was bored. Before that it was Masterpeice Skywarp to put it into Jet mode.

    Before that, couldn't say. I don't open my TFs.
