    Come on I know we've all done it when we were kids. You know what I'm Talking about.....when you were playing outside around the block or in the schoolyard as a kid you used to try to imitate the transforming motion (and click-click-clack-click transfoming sound.) of your favorite transformer.

    Mine used to be Optimus Prime and Soundwave and his cassettes. Especially Prime.....I used to tuck both arms to my sides and act like my head was folding back and drive around like I was a truck.

    So what was yours? I know if you were a Transformers fan as a kid you did it at least once.

    Thanks for posting!!

    imitate the sound? HA! I did more than that. I immitated the transformation as well. Powermaster Optimus Prime's Cab. You see, I had this shirt with yellow on the sleeves so I used to pretend that those were the headlights in truck mode, so yeah, I'd sit on my butt on the floor, legs straight out, arms tucked in, and head down. It was so uncomfortable, but I could still race. >_> I'm surprised my butt still doesn't have scars from all the rugburns.

    The sound? All of them.

    It got a little tiresome though with some of the more complicated and time-consuming transformations. Mom would come by the room while my younger brother and I were playing with TFs, both of us happily making the TF sound, and ask why we were grunting like pigs.

    I don't remember ever physically imitating any TF motions.

    I honestly cannot remember.

    I do find myself subconsciously doing anime mecha style "metal on metal" clunks and stuff when I'm messing with the new ones, though. SFX on some of the new guys helps a load.

    Devastator. I'd be lying on the ground and slowly stand up, simulating my arms and legs merging onto my torso, and flip my head up. All while making the low, slow CRRRRRRK-CRRRRRRRK-CRRR-CRRRR-CRRRRRRRRRRRK!! :lol

    Yeah all of mine. Especially Trypticon...I'd really do it very slow and with a deeper, methodical voice or whatever.

    When I got Fortmax I forewent the whole sound effects altogether as it took me a long ass time to transform fort max

    I didnt really do sounds mostly voices. Since I was 5 I have had a talent to change my voice to match others.

    G1 Megs I do this still today with a few of my friends when they do something stupid or say something I do a almost spot on Megs voice with a put down as if they are SS.

    Also Movie/Game OP when OP demands BB to do this and that go hear go there. but mostly Megs

    I once tried to do Wazzpinator just to prove he could be an easy costume to make.

    This was not to long ago. I looked silly.
