    They never get me Transformers because they don't know what I have and don't have. Feelsokayman.jpg

    Though I did ask my mom to buy me a RTS Wreck-Gar because I saw that it was near her workplace in the sightings forum and I hadn't seen one anywhere else near me.

    I got a hand-me-down Soundwave and blue Diaclone Convoy from my Grandparents' old neighbor back when I was like 7.

    Those have to be the only Transformers I've ever been given.

    ROTF Devastator. It's the best because it's the only one anyone's ever bought for me. Not something I would have bought for myself. It's the thought that counts, and it was going for a pretty penny then, so I appreciate it.

    Probably the G1.5 Scorch or G2 Slag that I got from my Grandma. I guess I could also list the BW Depth Charge too couse it was ultimately bought with my parents money when I was a kid (or even the G2 Optimus Prime), but Scorch always comes to mind as one of my favorite "gift toys", so it's gonna be it. :)

    From my childhood, Predaking.

    In recent years, it's a tie between...
    -ROTF Leader Class Optimus Prime, a Father's Day gift from my wife. Also, the gift that got me back into collecting.
    -Battle Ops Bumblebee, a Christmas gift from my brother.
    -Human Alliance Jazz, also a gift from the kid brother that same Christmas.

    My gf gave me an HFTD Bumblebee track set for Christmas around 2 years ago. :) 

    My mom gave me a DOTM Cyberverse Stealth Bumblebee as part of her birthday gifts to me last year, I was touched by the fact that she chose one with the best paint apps among the gazillions in Toy Kingdom (a local retailer). :)

    Does using my mom's credit card to buy an Optimus Prime piggy bank count as a family member giving me a Transformer?

    X-9 Ravage from a friend many moons ago for Christmas.

    As a child, I came home one day from school and there was a MIB Optimus Prime (G1 I'm one of the old guys here). Not coming from a wealthy background and Prime costing a lot you could imagine my surprise when I saw him on the table. I still remember that moment after all these moons.

    It kind of turned into a debacle, but MP Thundercracker from my sister for my birthday a few years back.

    Last Christmas my buddy who is over in China right now got me the first two Hercules figures for Christmas. I really owe that bastard something cool when he comes back stateside (hopefully with the other 4 Hercules figures I paid for).

    My daughter's 9 and never really 'got' me anything for a holiday (I rarely get anything anyway because I like giving more). So this past Christmas, she actually conspired with my mother to order me a FE Deluxe Optimus Prime from HTS. She knew I wanted it, but wouldn't buy it for myself. She gave her nana some money from her piggy bank, not knowing if it was enough. It wasn't, but that didn't matter. My mother ordered it with my daughter's money (quietly putting the meager funds back into her piggybank), and had it delivered to her at my place.
    It was the best Christmas present I've ever gotten.

    Well, if we're going back to childhood, then Fort Max. Thanks Grandma, you were right, some motherfucker stole it. If I knew then what I know now, I would have handcuffed it to me.
