    So when out in the real world whether it be at work,driving walking down the street or whatever else your doing do you ever look at real life vehicles or machines and imagine them transforming out of no where? Theres construction on some free ways where i live and i look over and yell CONSTRUCTICONS!! to my girlfriend lol, or you see some cool military vehicle and think damn that would be a cool toy

    *walking with wife down a street into town*

    Upon spying a dark blue Mazda RX-8, I point and come out with "Alternators Shockwave!"

    all the time. my dad works for a company called Komatsu and they make construction machines. every time i go there, i feel like the G2 Constructicons are watching me. i also say "that's it!" whenever i see a van that would make an excellent G1 Ironhide. which annoys the hell out of my brother

    Yes.

    Don't tell anyone OP. It's my deepest darkest secret and I don't want anyone to know. Especially the internet.

    Bay's movies (my first foray into the series) had this effect on me for a solid week or so; couldn't look at a vehicle without thinking "how would THAT look as a Transformer?"

    I do this every time I see a construction vehicle that resembles one of the Constructicons (most often Scavenger or Mixmaster). It's freaky, but I've done it for 25+ years now and I can't stop :D

    All the time, especially with construction vehicles. I swear, we came danger close to having Devastator form multiple times, but thankfully Long Haul never showed up

    I see alot of the Alternators real world counterparts and immediately think of them. Dont see much of the G1 cars which is too bad.

    Its like in the film full metal jacket when they are discussing how if you spend too long fighting in Vietnam you get the thousand yard stare, if you spend too long addicted to transformers you get the transformers stare where you see the world in this way, welcome to our way of seeing the world. Don't listen to anyone who thinks its mad, they just don't understand like we do, its perfectly socially acceptable I think.

    If a beast wars fan starts looking at animals and thinking similar things, is that a step too far?

    I'm sure everyone with a passing interest in Transformers has looked at real-world vehicles at some time and imagined if they were actually Transformers.

    I did when I was little, not so much now a days. Although that's also has to do with the extreme number of Toyota's, BMW's, and Merccedes Benz that I frequently see in my area. :(  Only recent time I can remember is when I saw a Honda NSX and a Dodge Challenger stopped at a traffic light. Boy my imagination had a field day that day.:D
