    I think r.o.t.f. has proven that transformers fandom is immortal. I had a near quit moment when I went to see it at the cinema with my girlfriend and friends and it was really really embarrassing, the racist stereotype characters, the flimsy impossible to follow storyline it was all too much to bear at the time. the last half of d.o.t.m., animated series, prime and some of i.d.w. have definitely helped improve my opinion of the franchise but what keeps bringing me back is doing customs. any franchise gains major staying power when a creative element can be added I mean look at lego

    I'll probably be a fan forever. I may eventually be skint and not actually able to buy any of the toys or comics and stuff but I'll still be a fan in my mind.

    When I re-watch stuff from my childhood as an adult for the sake of nostalgia. Allot of it seems cooler the way I remember it than it actually was. I stopped watching all that other stuff when I realized how stupid it was. If I was ever going to stop watching Transformers, I would of done it already.

    I plan on staying a TF fan for the rest of my life, if at all possible.

    Heh, this reminds me of a conversation I had with a girlfriend once. For me, I treat both my love of Transformers and for my significant-other the same way:
    I don't set an expiry date. What happens, happens. Sort of that 'it's the journey, not the destination' mantra for me. ;)

    It's hard to tell since I'm into other things, but I'm pretty sure it'll be a while before I lose interest.

    I think you don't have to buy toys, comics, or any other merchandise to be a fan. Be a fan your own way. As long as you love 'em you're a fan.

    Collecting the toys? All my life.

    Interacting with the fandom? I consider leaving it fairly often.

    Until all aspects (Shows, movies, toys, comics, and games) stop interesting me.

    It doesn't seem to be happening (Though I've slowed down on the toys and I don't get Hub, so no Prime for me lol), so it doesn't look like I'll leave anytime soon.

    Hopefully for a while. As long as good TV/Movie media keeps coming out (I don't read comics) I'll probably stay in the fandom.
