    You first saw your childhood transformers appear on the big screen? My experience was watching the TF1 trailer with 'night at the museum 1'. I had no idea there was a movie or known anything transformers related since I got an Energon Omega Supreme for Christmas two years ago.
    As I watched this ---> ‪Transformers - Official Trailer 1 [2007] [720p HD]‬‏ - YouTube , I kept thinking:
    A meteor... what is that a ship? Aliens? Creepy...
    The pentagon? Base got attacked with explosions and HOLY SHIT FLYING TANKS.
    The only lead is... WTF THAT SOUNDS FUCKIN CREEPY
    oh look a helicop-OMG what happened to the pilot? HOLY FUCK WHATS GOING ON WITH THE CHOPPER CREEPY SOUND AGAIN EXPLOSIONS
    Desert dudes! My brother's one of th-HOLY SHIT DESERT THING WITH SPIKES NOISE AGAIN EXPLOSION
    creepy soundtrack playing HOLY SHIT WHAT'S THAT RED AND BLUE THING NOISE!
    Cars and planes yay ZOMG YELLOW CREEPY THING AND SOUNDS
    Most come to destro- AIEE GIANT THING CRUSHED THAT KID FROM DISNEY CHANNEL
    PLANES FLYING! BLACK [out] TURNING AROUND!! LOOKING UP!!! TOO MUCH STUFF EXPLODING!!!! HOLY CRAP I JUST USED THAT BUS TO GET HERE


    Oh hi little girl. I see you have a little ponyYARGH WHAT IS THAT THING GETTING OUT THE POOL RUN LITTLE GIRL RUN BEFORE YOU DIE

    WTF Transformers?! WTF IS THIS?! THIS FOR REAL?! oh. Autobots. Its real.

    That was how I reacted seven years ago. I thought it was a horror/alien movie before I went on YouTube after changing my pants. What about the rest of the fandom? Remember?

    I saw Bumblebee (?) destroy a rover on Mars in a teaser and though "Oh, cool, no more Unicron Trilogy".

    I don't think it was Bumblebee on Mars, I think it was Starscream.

    Most likely. I think I read it was him. Or maybe I read it was Bumblebee. Forget which. Doesn't matter.

    I sat motionless in my seat, enraptured. Even ceasing to consume whatever food I was eating to observe the screen.

    When I saw the Arrival To Earth clip and then seeing Optimus Prime speak for the first time when asking Sam his name, my eye's welled up. Just overwhelming emotions as one of the best scenes of any of the three movies.

    Brought back memories of my childhood days watching the G1 cartoons and the fact that Peter Cullen did the voice of Prime for the movie was awesome. He will always be the voice of Optimus.

    I thought this was awesome.

    And this is comming from a Beast Wars and Unicron Trilogy Fan at that point. I didn't like the first trailer because i didn't what was happening but i know's it's called a teaser. However the Later Trailers pumped me out and my mom knowing how much i loved Transformers, took me and their saw the only really good Transformers movie.

    5 Years later, This young fanboy got older and fatter and now can barely tolerate Bayformers.

    I saw the teaser trailer, thought that the movie looked like it was going to be good, and when I saw it in theaters, I just couldn't believe I was hearing Peter Cullen's Optimus Prime in the opening and then when I saw Blackout transform and attack the base in Qatar, I was just blown away.

    I walked out of the theater, chatting excitedly on how awesome the movie was and I was just so very happy to see live-action TFs and wanted more of it.

    I remember seeing the title "TRANSFORMERS" and my mouth gaping. Then I remember seeing the movie and being surprised when Jazz got ripped in half.
