How do you say it? I've always put the emphasis on the second syllable (Trans-form'-ers) like it was pronounced in G1. Now in the wake of the live-action movie explosion, I'm hearing people say the word a lot more in real life, and a number of them pronounce it with the emphasis on the first syllable (Trans'-form-ers), which just sounds weird to my ears. In my experiences, The "TRANSformers" people are usually more casual fans or even non-fans. I remember hearing "TRANSformers" in a lot of movie reviews. Now, I've never been to a convention or anything where I'd be surrounded by a lot of hardcore fans in person, but I was just curious how "Transformers" is pronounced within the fandom. So... which is it?
