    Guess it's Transfans. Although that reminds me of transgenders...

    I'm fond of trannies, personally, because it sounds like something else. Transfans is kinda okay and it's one I hear more often, but it doesn't really flow. A few people call themselves radicons, but I think that only applies to... people that make customs?

    "Transformers Fans".

    Radicons applies only to the customizers on TFW2005.

    Yeah, if we have a nickname, it'd probably be "Transfans". But that nickname hasn't reached the popularity/"famous-ness" of the nicknames for Star Trek fans. Or even "Bronies". In fact, I don't think I've ever heard of anyone outside of the Transformers fandom use that term. It's always been simply "Transformers fans". (Or of course "GeeWunners and Bay-bies" :p  ).

    I feel like in the early (usenet) days, "Transfans" was the most common term, although it seems to have fallen into disuse in recent years. It's still the term I use.

    The fans are members of the FanDumb, the fans on this site are members of the 2005th Legion, and fans themselves are either Transformers fans or just the fans.
