    I was thinking about some nerdy transformer related things and I thought why not make a thread here for it

    I once only wrote in cybertronian to my cousin... he thought it was Chinese ( he was 7)

    Anyway share some nerdy things you’ve done before here

    You mean beside posting on this messageboard?

    I used to make backgrounds for my transformers. I drew out the original Mt Saint Hilary background on paper and would put my transformers in action poses in front of it. I would then take pictures of that and post them to one of the boards I was a member of back then... Transfandom I think.

    I can go off on a tangent about obscure Transformers trivia if somebody get's me talking. I wish I could write Cybertronix though.

    The nerdiest thing I've done is take my transformers with me on vacation and take photos of them interacting with the scenery. Speaking of which, I gotta go post today's photo...

    I wrote some skits for a summer camp that incorporated punny-named Transformers characters inspired by the Dinobots and Devastator. Lots of campers and staff enjoyed them, but I remember one staff member saying a year later, "That was stupid." I incorporated one of the characters a few years after their introduction, which was probably received even better, although again a separate staff member said she didn't get it. The actors had a blast playing their parts.

    In both cases, I don't think either of the two people who didn't get it/thought it was stupid would ever like anything Transformers-related at all. If they did, that would probably be the day Hell froze over, and Transformers would be ruined forever.

    I once saw a Transformers edition Camero and didn't realize it had a remote start. Even though logically I knew that's what it wasI still acted as though the car were really alive...

    Also pretty much any time I see a vehicle that looks like a Transformer in real life I'll start talking to it demanding it show it's robot mode.

    Sometimes when I’m bored stuck in traffic I imagine how certain vehicles could transform

    The nerdiest thing I've ever done Transformers-wise is edit my own personal DVD set of the Omni English dub of Headmasters, Masterforce, and Victory. My goal was to sensor out the swearing, as well as things the Autobots said or did that was unheroic, and to give it a Sunbow flavor by creating custom Sunbow style opening and ending. And I used the Sunbow commercial bumper music too. 2.5 years later and I only have 10 more episodes of Victory to go and I'll be 100% finished.

    But I think camping out for Star Wars Episode 1 tickets was probably the nerdiest thing I ever did.

    I hunted for every last hidden message I could find in BW & BM & used the translated pred & maxi alphabets to translate them.

    This was using vhs quality footage recorded off tv. No crisp Shout! quality dvds.

    Found some cool stuff. Found out later that other people had done this before me too, but whatever. I’m probably one of a small handful of people that bothered to even try.

    Also, I slap Decepticons decals on all my appliances. I have a Decepti-fridge, Decepti-vac, Decepti-PS2 & my car’s name is Mega Focus. :p

    Hm I would like to contribute to this thread, but most of the times I'm not aware if something is considered nerdy, until one of my friends points it out to me. Is there a short rule on what the threshold is, when something is considered nerdy?

    The nerdiest thing I've done might be joining a Transformers forum.

    whoops, GoLion beat me to it.
