    Were there any Transformers you got as presents from your family for a certain occasion like a birthday, graduation, or Christmas?

    I recall my parents who got me a Hasbro MP Optimus (regular, no chrome or battle damage) and Cybertron supreme Primus on the last day of school for passing third grade with perfect scores.

    I specifically remember one birthday in the 80's when my father got me both Trypticon and Scorponok. Still have both of them in nm/m condition with all accessories. One of the coolest birthdays. Only place he ever found them was when he was visiting family in New York.

    I also remember christmas the year transformers first aired on TV, and one of my present was Optimus Prime.

    I'm sure there were others, but these stand out the most.

    Dec 25th, 1996, got BW Insecticon and Snapper from my grandpa and grandma.

    1997, got Astrotrain from one of my brother's old teachers after class was over.

    May 1999, got BW TM 2 Scourge from my uncle (No reason, just normal day and he gave it to me.)

    October 1999, got BW TM 2 Spittor for birthday.

    Got BW Depth Charge and Rampage during the holidays before, but can't recall if that was 98 or 99. Also got BW TM 2 Ramulas and Cheetor on Dec 25th as well, think that was 99.

    Lets see, from what I can remember....

    Universe Ratchet (RiD X-Brawn repaint) and Universe Skydive (BM Skydive repaint)

    From the Ex, I got: GF Galaxy Convoy, Energon Grimlock and Swoop (pending sale), Alt Windcharger, Alt Wheeljack and some others I'm not quite sure of... maybe those other ones weren't TFs.... IDR

    RiD Galvatron on X-Mas from my Brother. This one caught me off guard because it was my first TF toy I got since I started collecting during BW. I usually ask for clothes and stuff like that cuz I buy my own toys.

    I'm sure my Fort Max was a present when I was a kid, but I don't recall actually getting it. I remember getting some pretenders and micromasters for my birthday, but that's because they photobombed a pic of me eating ice cream cake.

    Prior to this month, the last Transformer I remember being given by a friend or family member was probably the Generation 2 Constructicons. Now, you have to understand, every year my mother asks me to E-Mail her with a list of things I’d be interested in. She likes me to list the price, where it can be found, brick and mortar, or online with a link.

    Usually I ask for routine things, any DVDs or Blu Rays I might be interested in, football (soccer) or hockey jerseys, maybe a new putter, nothing too fancy, just whatever I might happen to want or need at the time. I then go over the list, adding up how much I want, and then pare it down to a reasonable level. I then send it to her with the note that while I don’t expect everything on this list, I would appreciate any of the following. By sending her options, she can pick and choose and it comes as something of a surprise.

    This year, I included some of the normal stuff, but then I decided to add some Transformers that I had been meaning to get for my Classics collection, but hadn’t gotten around to. So I found the best deals I could on Axer (2010 Axor), Lockdown (ROTF), Slugslinger (Energon), Spoons (ROTF Deadlift), Hoist (ROTF), Whirl (ROTF), Getaway (Movie Breakaway), things like that. It turns out she bought all the Transformers on the list. I know this because she had them delivered to my home.

    I ended up having to pay the import fees on one or two of them, and she obviously didn’t wrap them, but I am certainly not complaining. She also bought the clothing I asked for. She came over and asked me to try them on to make sure they fit before she took them back to be wrapped.

    It’s been a bit surreal, especially with the amount of hours I’ve been working. Everyday there seems to be a new note on the door that they tried to deliver something.

    Yesterday, I donated about 20 MISB / MOC Transformers, ranging from Legends to Ultra to the Toy Bank. I didn't think I was doing it out of guilt at the time, but now I'm wondering if my subconscious was at work.

    That's hardly justification for her being an ex. Were the packages beat up?

    I remember getting a Prowl and Galvatron for Christmas in 1986, we still have video of it. I got all the protectobots and technobots for Christmas 1987, I think Scorponok too that year. Much later my dad went to a local flea market and bought me a Weirdwolf and Siren for christmas 1999.

    More recently my wife bought me tons of RID, Universe, Energon and Cybertron figures over the past 10 years. She has stopped lately though b/c what I want now is increasingly difficult to find.

    One Christmas I got Micromaster Base Countdown and another Christmas I got Powermaster Optimus Prime. And I think I got some Micromaster Patrol at Nikolaus Day.

    I can't remember any more. Those were the best Transformers presents, that's probably why I still remember when I got them.

    My very first Transformer, RiD Optimus, was given to me on my birthday. He is proudly standing, complete, next to my computer right now. :D
