I want make a topic that will involve G1 and other series that I pray cannot go wrong, and turn into a mess. So here's my attempt. Let's reminisce. Think back to simpler times. Fond memories we have of Transformers, from any series. No debating, no yelling, no arguing about which series is better. Let's just share good times. I genuinely love reading stories like this. Am I alone? Maybe. I bet it can be fun to just share your own, though. -------------------- I grew up with G1. Literally. I was born in 82, and Transformers were with me from 84 onwards, when my dad decided to take me to toys r us, and actually buy me a G1 starscream that I apparently wanted REALLY badly. I was like, 2. He probably shouldnt have done it, but he did. He confiscated a lot of the extra parts, and I chewed the hell out that nosecone, but I got Starscream. He bought me more through the years, and I watched the show, and I loved it. At some point I stopped chewing on seekers. I only had two as a kid, starscream and ramjet. Funny enough, when G2 came around, I was again limited to those two. Looking back, I don't have that many memories of the TV show or comics (which I discovered at a grocery store when I was around 4 or 5). My fondest memories were the bio cards, on the toy boxes. They gave a hell of a lot of care into making even minor little toys unique in their personalities and backgrounds, even to the point of naming their weapons and giving them crazy ranges and stuff. I thought all that stuff was SO COOL. I kept all of them until my mom threw them out some time during G2. By then, the red crayon box I kept them in had broken in half, and was being held together by a mess of scotch tape and a gigantic rubber band. Even then, the thing was so stuffed it couldn't close, it just looked like a really fucked up sandwich with a handle. The bios were more interesting to me than the show or comics, because they gave me a great foundation to come up with my own stupid stories and comics, which I thought were awesome. The bio cards were so important to me, that on the christmas morning that I came downstairs to find a brand new, box-less Scorponok set up by the tree with all his accessories and instructions laid out, I begged for my dad go out in the freezing cold, dig through trash bags in the back yard, and retrieve the box for the bio card. He did it. My dad is awesome. I also decided at some point to rename Tracks "Speedfast". I was like three or four. it's... not one of my proudest moments, but it happened. So. How about you?
