    Post funny transformers related stories about transformers stuff with kids.


    I was explaining to my nephew that in japan the transformers used to be named differently, and when I brought up that 'Cons were called 'Destrons', he said that was stupid because it sounds like 'Restaurants'

    He then puzzlingly asked why I started laughing.

    Young kid (probably around 6?) playing with a knockoff clear-black WST Optimus at a toy show. Looks up at me, shows me the toy.

    Me: Whoa, cool black Optimus Prime!
    Him: NO! It's Nemesis Prime! He's a bad guy!
    Me: They have trained you well, my young friend.

    my cousin (like 7-8) was playing with a bunch of some old transformers of mine, when suddenly he picked up an energon downshift (I think?) and put it off to the side. when I asked him why, he replied "I don't like the aesthetic"

    I was looking at some Transformers stuff at the bookstore and this kid practically pushed me over so he could look at some classic Transformers comic compilations, lol.

    For Christmas years ago I bought some of the Playskool "Go-Bots" for my cousin's kids. They were around 3-4 at the time, and I'm not sure they 'got' that the toys could change. Still, they like racing the Speed-bot car around the carpet, and flying Gorilla-bot around the room yelling "BUH.... ITE... EARRr!" (translastion: "Buzz Lightyear!")

    I was part of a Veterans Day convocation at my daughter's school, and as the studends were walking past and shaking our hands to thank us for our service, up walks a kid with a Pat Lee Optimus crouched on an Autobot symbol on his shirt. I commented that I loved the shirt, and he thought I was teasing him. My daughter had to convince him of my wall o' toys back home.
