    Does writing novels in your 40s still count? :)

    I'm in my 30s - I only collect Masterpiece figures for now, the new universe stuff is looking interesting though.

    I am 29 going to be 30 soon. I collect Classics (brought me back in after a 20 some year absence), Masterpiece, and G1. Mostly Classics and I too am looking forward to the new Universe toys.
    My favorite characters are Omega Supreme, Starscream, Soundwave, and of course Megatron.
    My favorite (or least depending :(  ) is that nothing has even come close to how good G1 is (my opinion of course)

    Well I just turned 30 in november and I still love transformers. megatron is still my favorite. I like bumblebee more now since I am a Camaro fan as well.


    I collect everything from G1 all the way through Beast Wars and the new Movie. I just love my transformers.

    My favorite thing about the old series is the bickering between Megatron and Starscream as well and the characterization of Optimus Prime. He was such a classic hero in the 80's. Also I always loved the combiners and all that stuff.

    I'll be 34 in April, and I still feel like I'm 10 years old eveytime I find a new "bot".

    Some things just get better with age.. and some things still help make us young at heart. For me, it's my Transformers.

    Just reached 32...
    I collect whatever is improved G1 such as 6" titaniums and Classics.
    Or I kitbash some TF's to fit the classics line.
    I love the G1 line but they are bricks so if I can give them some articulations I try.
    So basically, my collection is all classics based kitbashed improved G1's...or something like that!
    My favs...
    -The Constructicons (Devastator)
    -The Dinobots
    -Skyfire
    -Sideswipe
    -Megatron
    -Optimus Prime
    -Galvatron....for his insanity
    -Cyclonus

    Early 30's....

    G1 was great and all, but it's best as a memory. Occasionally I'll track down one of the G1 toys that I wanted and never got as a kid, but for the most part, I'm more excited about the current and future lines and tracking down some of the better figures from the lines that I missed between now and the old days.

    I'm 31 (I'll be 32 this year) and I've been a Transformers fan since literally DAY ONE. I still collect them, I still own almost all of my old Transformers (some in great shape, some not), and I'm still a HUGE fan of almost anything Transformers related. I own most of the old Marvel comics series, most of the new Transformers series that have been released in recent years, and I own the entire Rhino collection of Generation 1, as well as Metrodome's Headmasters, Masterforce, and Victory sets all on DVD.

    My favorite characters are as follows:

    Generation 1 (Seasons 1-3, Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory):
    Optimus Prime
    Megatron
    Ironhide
    Ratchet
    Prowl
    Devastator
    Starscream
    Ultra Magnus
    Galvatron
    Cyclonus
    Scourge
    Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime
    Grimlock
    Slag
    Swoop
    Sludge
    Snarl
    Fortress Maximus
    Chromedome
    Hardhead
    Ginrai/Super Ginrai/God Ginrai
    Overlord
    King Poseidon
    Deszaras
    Road Caesar
    Liokaiser
    Star Saber
    Victory Leo

    I'm more of a G1 fan, what can I say? But in the end, I'll be a diehard Trans-fan until the day I die.

    I'll be 34 in April and I collect BT/Alts, Classics, Titaniums, movie toys, and I'll be collecting the upcoming Universe/Classics 2.0 line. I'm still on the fence about how much I will collect of Animated. I'm definitely getting Animated Grimlock, though. My favorite character is Smokescreen, specifically the BT/Alt. version. But, Grimlock comes in a very close second. Other characters I like include, but not limited to: Prowl, Bluestreak, Starscream, Shockwave and Sixshot.
