    Happy birthday TFW! I know how much work goes into making this place run, so I'm incredibly thankful to ownership and the staff. Of course the site is only here because the fans keep coming back to show their love for Transformers! A perfect blend to make the best Transformers site :rock

    Happy Birthday to one of my favorite all-time sites on the internet! I first became a fan of TFW2005 back in 2007, a few months before the release of a live-action version of my favorite toy & storyline growing up--it was like a dream come true back in that very special year of 2007. Though I had not kept up with Transformers since the 80's, this site--along with Seibertron--is where I came to catch back up on that special thing so many of us grew up on as I got exceedingly pumped up for July 2nd, 2007. Through this site, I was even able to engage with Robert Orci in the Discussion Forums before the release of the second film, which was so cool to be able to do--he was so gracious in his back and forth, and was genuinely interested in my thoughts and input.

    Thank you for this very cool place to bring fans of Transformers together, no matter what era we joined--which now stretches across 36 years of numerous jumping-off points!! Keep bringing all together as one.

    All my best, Matt <3

    Happy birthday, TFW2005! Been around a long time. Been lurking since RiD 2001 days. I was able to introduce this site many years ago to my kids and now my grandkids. My older sons lurk around from time to time for their own collections. Thank you for providing such a great community.

    Next month will be my 11th anniversary of joining this site. Being high functioning autistic, most autistic people have an obsession with something, and mine was transformers. It was always one of my favorite toys growing up. I still have my very first one I got when I was 4, a Power Master Optimus Prime my grandma bought for me at a garage sale. Now years later as an adult I'm close to owning 800 transformers. I know theres others that had it way rougher than me, but growing up I had a really hard life in terms of making friends and socializing, especially my later years from Jr High to College. Even at age 31, the amount of "true" friends I have in person is less than the amount I can count on both hands. In 2009 I found this site and decided to join. Since than its been a site I visit multiple times a day, and its nice to have a place to discuss my obsession with other people. In a way I guess I could say this site saved me from being lonely at times. I'm glad I found it during a random google search all those years ago

    That old site design brings back memories. I was back in college when this place started up. Used to keep checking here for more picks of Japanese Beast Wars figures and the later the Car Robot subs. Which all got me importing the Car Robot figures as I wanted a Truck not a Munkey Optimus. Used to go by Big O back then here, till the big site crash in 2002, then I renamed myself and have been Tekkaman ever since..

    Jesus 20 years, has it really been that long? The internet and this site were so different back then. Or so He Tell ME.

    I've been posting on these boards since I was a kid, I kinda grew up on here. Thanks for providing such a nice forum to talk about Transformers on for so long, I don't know what I'd do without this place.

    Before TFW some of us are from Transfandom. I think Allspark and Tformers were the only forums around.
    There was only a few smaller sites like BWTF for reviews, TFKenkon for the high res pics, Tfu.info for info and TransformerLand for buying parts.

    There was also Wheeljacks lab on ebay and TFs at the Moon for misc stuff.
    Everyone basically knew each other, now theres all these kids on the lawn :lol
