    Radicons doesnt count since its more TFW centered then Transformers centered.

    I like Cyberbronian. It's clever and doesn't have the unfortunate connotations of Transfan.

    I don't like to have a "name". I'm just a fan, as I am of several other things/brands. Not saying there's anything wrong with any of those names those, so no need to defend it, I was just speaking personally.

    Yeah, agreed.

    Poster you seriously forgot the "none of the above" option.
    I am a transformers collector, plain and simple :p

    Transfan is suitable. Anything with "bro" in it is fucking retarded.

    "Brony" works because it rolls of the tongue well. Cyberbronian and Cybronian are clumsy mouthfuls.

    Transfan reigns supreme.

    Seiberbros, Cybrotronian and Cyberbronian seem to imply that the fans are all male (at least that's how it seems to me). Since there are quite a few female fans of Transformers (myself included), none of these work for me.
    So while Transfan is still an awkward term to use in conversation, i'm afraid none of those names really do it for me personally.

    Transfans is the widely accepted name now. It's been that for at least 10 years, I do not see why there is any need for that to change.

    I prefer transfans even though its one letter away fom transfats.
    Oh and by the way, instead of seiberbros, how about seibros? To me it sounds a little better, just not as good as transfans.

    "Radicons" refers to the modding/customizing community found here at TFW.

    THIS.

    Cybrotronian. Less clunky than "Cyberbronian" in my mind.

    I can accept "Brony" since it's based on something not apparently intended for boys/men. This stuff is just "I'm gonna put 'bro' in everything because 'bro' is really bro and bro-ness is brody bro bro."

    i'm a fan of transformers, no need for a silly and stupid name
