    Parabens, TFW2005! Thanks for all your hard work and dedication over these past twenty years to this amazing franchise and quirky hobby of ours! And for allowing me to join in managing some of the day to day affairs in the forums as part of the staff. :D

    Was there for the Transfandom.org beginnings, was there for the message PURGE and rebirth into TFW2005. Went under a different username for awhile then settled on what we know as Protoman today.

    It's been quite a trip.

    A did a little talk / tribute to TFW2005 and well as some key members throughout the years on the podcast.



    Enjoy and here's to the future of TFW2005.

    So why is 2005 in the name if it launched in 2000? I've always wondered.

    From the 1986 Transformers: The Movie

    "It is the year 2005. The treacherous Decepticons have conquered the Autobots' home planet of Cybertron. But from secret staging grounds on two of Cybertron's moons, the valiant Autobots strive to retake their homeland."

    I’ve been on this site since 2015. I’d like to thank everyone who bought all my figures when I was in a bad spot.

    This is a fun website to be a part of, and I'm glad it's celebrating its birthday today. I look forward to when it celebrates it's 25th Anniversary in 2025!

    I found that theory to go out the window pretty quick when there are members with join dates before 2005...

    I didn\'t make my account till last year but I\'ve been coming to this site for at least 8 years. This is the single best TF community site as far as I\'m concerned, and I\'m glad it\'s still alive and kicking.  Happy birthday TFW2005. Here\'s to another twenty years!

    Wow, very cool TFW2005 very cool.

    I’ve had a pretty cool time, apart from a few mishaps, but it’s nice to have a lengthy site with a great 3P section and some pretty cool folks.

    Thanks.

    Happy Birthday TFW!!!! I stumbled upon on you on my AOL dial up in 2003 looking to spend my tax money on a Car Robots Brave Maximus, what I found was 17 years worth of great content and an amazing fan base. Love you all and thanks for the many many years and here’s to many many more!!!!
