So many of us will have either grown up with Transformers (for example G1) or been introduced to it at a relatively young age. The recent age poll on here showed that, for the most part we are all within roughly the same age demographic. I think it's fair to say that 'our' age group is the first to really collect toys of this type, ie which are marketed directly through a cartoon or similar media, especially in the numbers we represent. I know there are people of all ages who collect toy cars, dolls and such like, but in terms of a tie in to a TV show or film, there is really only those of us who were born in the 70s or 80s who have embraced this as a hobby and carried it through to the age we are now. OK, maybe Star Wars fans would be slightly older than TF fans on average (although the newer trilogy may have changed that) but generally, I would group us all together in the context of this thread. So my question is, at what point do you think we will stop buying toys? When we are forty? Fifty? Can you really see yourself posting on TFW and hunting down the latest TF releases when you are approaching retirement? My own answer is that I genuinely do not know. As I said, there isn't really a precedent for this type of collecting/fan/hobby that I can easily think of, so I have nothing to judge against. Is there anyone out there who collects TFs who is already aged forty or more? I would like to hear from them! Where do you those of you aged 30-35 think you will be with your Transformer toy collection in the next twenty years?
