    OK, time to tell the truth. Me? I have no problem admitting that I'm a geek, but I wanna know how many other ppl have been able to rise to or surpase the level of geekdom that I seem to have ainadvertantly achieved. What's the most "geek" thing that you do with your transformers? What's the one thing that you do with your transformers that you are even afraid to admit to another "geek" for fear that even they may make fun of you?

    After opening a new TF the first thing I do is grab my laptop, go to Wikipedia and look up a compleat bio for my new toy (for example http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soundwave_(Transformers) ), because aperantly the bio included with the toys are just not enough form me. I then copy all of the text, manually remove all of the hyperlinks in Mirosoft Word Processor, save it, and print a hard copy, wich I then proceed to file away in alphabetical order with the rest of the ones I already have printed out. I also keep a very extensive Database/Spreadsheet to catalog all of the ones that i already own.

    Not geek enough? How about this?


    I manage a strip club for a living, and on more that one occasion one of the DJ's and myself have passed up the chance to party with large groups of drunken strippers so that we could sneek our Transformers in after hours and play with them in the club undisturbed. (yea I know.. I've said several Hail-Optimus' and asked Alpha Trion to forgive me)

    Ok, your turn... time to bear your soul and admit to them dirty little secrets that you've been keeping, and don't wory about getting stoned... us geeks are have notoriously bad hand eye cordination, we couldn't hit ya even if we wanted to.

    i told her i couldn't due to something i made up on the spot..
    later on, i went out with some friends to do some transformer hunting!

    Um.....I've chosen buying Transformers over food before, and settled for Jeno's frozen pizzas for days in a row so i could afford a new toy.

    Other than an extensive spreadsheet, that's about the stretch of my geek. (granted that's still pretty geeky)

    You passed up strippers for TF playtime? bad monkey.

    That's not Geek, its just unheard of. I guess you're more of a pioneer...

    As for me, about the most TF Geek thing I do is pass on going out with people in favor of coming home to check out TFW. Doesn't happen all the time, but is has happened on more than one occassion.

    As far as the strippers go, seen one you've seen em all, for the most part :D  Plus, the fact that you manage a strip club means that you get to see strippers every day at work; how many of us can say that?

    After reading his list, I don't think anyone else is gonna be even close, so don't feel too bad...though I would agree with KA :D 

    My biggest geek moments pale in comparison to most of the board, but here are a few:

    30+ Years old, still collecting
    Maintain Excel spreadsheet on entire US TF releases to date and an Access Database/Excel Spreadsheets on my own collection.
    Author of my own web comic hosted in the Funnies thread (shameless plug: see sig).

    I'm not going to win this thread, but just collecting TF's is geeky for me, that's about it. I've started kitbashing some, but It hasn't gotten to a geeky level, yet. Peace out.

    My geekiest moment has to be when my friends ask me, "Excited about the new Transformers movie?" And i usually reply by, "yeah, but it's just a movie."

    The fact that they would ask me that kinda shows I am a fricken TF nerd. (I do keep random figures strewn around in my bedroom).

    I think last night my friend mentioned if I actually play with my TFs. Before I could answer him he went off on how I probably cuddle with them and go to bed with them or some-such nonesense.

    Sigh sigh sigh. I always walk by the TF section when I go out shopping. I drag my whatever random friend along with me too. I almost never buy anything cause I don't have the money and I'm interested in very few figures usually anyway.
