    Hello, everyone.

    I'm Zappit, lifelong TF fan and emerging Masterpiece/3rd party collector. I spent the past few years on CHUGs, but they've haven't been impressing me much lately. Too many QC issues. I'm also an acid reader of the IDW books.

    I've been lurking these boards for awhile, mostly reading reviews on figures, but I think it's time to be more of an active participant.

    I'm also the creator of Supervillainous, a comedy webcomic about a supervillain trying to raise a family.

    Not a new member, just figured I'd reintroduce myself.

    Hi, I'm Lock Cade, formerly known as TRANS+CRAZY. Never really left this site, despite having had some trouble in the past; I simply chose to chill out in the Funnies section for the most part (as well as the social groups that are sadly no more). I'm going to try and be more active in other parts of the site. Keyword there: Try.

    Anyway... I was introduced to Transformers via my older brother, who had some of the G1 toys as well as a few episodes from the first season on VHS (and of course he had the 1986 movie too). It really wasn't until I found out about the first live action movie being in the works that I truly became interested in Transformers and joined this site in order to keep up with the latest news about it. My brother and I went to see the movie when it came out in theaters... and the rest, as they say, is history. Hard to believe that this November will mark my 10th anniversary being a member of this site.

    A lot has happened to me since most of you guys have last "seen" me around on the boards. In 2012, my brother and I bought a house together. The following year I graduated from college with a degree in Internet Professional, but after much struggle finding work, I ended up getting hired part-time at a local grocery store; this past June I got promoted to full-time. And sadly the past couple of years brought a lot of sadness in my life as first my grandpa committed suicide in December 2014, then a year later my grandma passed away from heart failure; I miss them very much, especially my grandpa (I will never know why he committed suicide -- it was totally out of the blue, we never saw it coming).

    Okay, I rambled on way too much. Like I said, I'm going to try and be more active on this site. Hope everyone is having a nice day.

    Hello, everyone, you'll all know me as DOTM Bumblebee, after my favorite figure in my collection, and my favorite character at the time I joined.. I've been on this sight a staggering... two years. :lol  Joking aside, I'm not really social on this sight, as I'm a nervous wreck when it comes to socializing, but I saw this thread and thought, "You know what? What the heck. I'm gonna be on a site for people of a shared interest, it's only right I get to know them."

    For a little information about me, I can't say much, but I became a fan back at the end of 2007/the beginning of 2008, when hype for the first live-action Transformers movie drove me to watch the first episode of Transformers Animated. Let's just say, I was hooked. Ever since then, I've tried to start a collection of figures, and by 2011, I started succeeding, and as of now, I have well over a hundred figures, which is a good lot more than I ever hoped to get when I started! :wink:  My favorite character is and always has been Bumblebee, particularly the Movie and Prime versions, and my favorite series is Transformers: Prime. My favorite toy is DOTM Deluxe Class Bumblebee, and I am an obsessive customizer who will paint up anything that isn't G1 or Masterpiece.

    Other interests of mine include dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals, Doctor Who, and high-quality children's cartoons, such as Steven Universe and Gravity Falls. In the way of non-Transformers games, I enjoy Minecraft, Portal 2, and Undertale.

    For me as a person, I'm a bit of an absent-minded daydreamer, and I'll space out a lot without meaning to. I'm really shy when it comes to social interactions, but I do try to be polite and generally pleasant to people. If I feel comfortable around someone, I enjoy making bad puns and innocent jokes when I can think of them. I've been on this planet for 19 years, but I still feel like a child at heart, and don't plan on changing that anytime soon.

    So, yeah, that's me, and I look forward to talking more with people.

    Hi guys, not my first time on here, but it's been a literal AGE since I was around, so much so that I honestly can't remember any details of back then. Ah well. I'm here now, and ready to talk Transformers, so hellooooooo!

    Hello!
    Been lurking for a bit for news, just decided to make an account on a boring work day.
    22 y/o, living in San Diego, CA. Very small toy collector up until now, due to low funds, but now I am back into the scene! Currently hella into the comics and (slowly) catching up on the animated part.
    would love to meet up with other San Diegans at some point
