    I'm sorta new at tfw2005 (I've only been here a few months), so I can't say I know that much about the site and it's wondrous fandom... but I've been wondering something for a long time that has been bothering me (so please don't hate me for asking)... Why is tfw2005 called tfw2005?! :confused:  I seriously don't know. If it began in 2000, why is it called 2005?

    My original theory was: as fandom and cartoon trivia, the site was named after the time of year in the original '85 Transformers Movie...
    TransFormers World 2005.
    Am I right? :confused2

    You are correct. It's in the title image at the top of the page. 2005 is the year the original animated film is set in.

    Also, the original animated movie came out in 1986, not '85. ;)

    We don't have the gigantic leaps in technology that they got from sentient robots from outer space. So no hover board or snazzy wardrobe either.

    You guys don't have rocket boards and hover cars? Wow... I mean I knew I lived in a first world country but I didn't realize how backwards third world countries are. At least tell me you guys can visit Mars Base Aldrin when ever you want, right?

    you'll have to wait another 4 years, Back tot he Future 2 was set in 2015 not 2010 (watch the film, you'll see I'm right :) )

    But yeah, Trans Formers World 2005 after the 1986 movie.
