    Your partner brings you home Transformers figures. I just got given a Acid Storm figure from my significant other, because I couldn't afford myself since i've been out of a job. Best thing is that he's now into TF, especially BW. He's gotten themselves some awesome stuff including:

    BW 10th Cheetor (present from me)
    Universe Prowl
    Premium Bumblebee
    Rescue Ratchet
    Universe TankOctane
    BW Snarl
    BW Tarantualas (gift from me)
    BW Telemocha (sp) Robot Masters Primal/Megatron
    Animated Blackarachnia
    Energon Constructicon Maximus (gave my one to him)

    He's away at the moment, but just text me to tell me he's bought me a Soundwave t-shirt I was eyeing up the other day.
    Feels good to be with someone who can share your passion (and steal my shelfspace!)

    Indeed.... nothing better than significant others embracing (and even encouraging) our geeky habit! :)  It's great that you were able to pass on the addiction, so you can share a hobby.

    Oh, and Acid Storm is a fantastic figure. :thumbs2:

    My grandmother does that. She'll come round with a bag saying "I got you these". Admittedly I usually have to return 90% of them because I already have them (and give gran back her money from them of course), but most of the time there's something in her bag I didn't have, or I get store credit and just pick up something else TF I was after. She doesn't mind as she's sorta a Transformers fan too and gives me the receipts when she hands over the toys. :)

    She did it back in the 80s for me too. She's probably paid for a quarter of my collection over the years. :)
