    I liked the franchise as a little kid in the 80s (which was, ya know, what Hasbro hoped to achieve with people like me), but I fell out during the mid-90s and didn't come back until 2001, and that was also the point where I really started to get in-depth with the fiction, rather than just watching a cartoon mindlessly, so I consider that the point where I became a fan

    I saw the premier of the cartoon "More than Meets the Eye" when it first aired September of 1984 and got Soundwave for Christmas that same year. My home has had at least one Transformers toy in it since.

    G1. I was born in 1975, so G1 was my time...

    The only series I skipped was RID and that was because I was mad that they were restarting the continuity and I felt my time was done...

    I came back with Armada because of the Mini-con partners. I LOVED Micromasters back in the day as well as the other *masters, and Armada had all of it. I was sucked back in from then on...

    Since '84, when I immediately decided to ditch GoBots.

    As an adult: rekindled with a combination of the 2007 Bay movie and when I decided to buy TRU Reissue Soundwave (how could I possibly resist?!)

    I voted Bw because that is when I became a collector and that is where my current day love stems from.

    The actual seed was planted with G1. I was born in 75 so G1 was the show I grew up with. But between the time it ended and BW started I had very little knowledge of my G1 days.

    G1. I wasn't there on the first day, exactly; I don't recall watching Season One on Saturday mornings, but I definitely came aboard in '85.

    Officialy after Cybertron since it was my first Transformers series.

    The toys however I LOVED from the moment I learned not to stick everything in my mouth/nose and my parents actually let me near them.

    Since 1984. Though I did take a "grow up / not interested" break from G2 to whenever it was that Masterpieces & Classics were announced. Those were the series that pulled me back.

    The movie series was what really solidified my status as a fan, but I loved watching Armada when it was on

    Since ROTF was in theaters, but I've watched all of the cartoons and stuff now. So it's like I've always been a fan. :)
