    I don't know about turning a lady into a big fan, but you could get a lady to find them adorable and cute. My female friends (who only know of Transformers from the film) liked the film and loved Bumblebee. Show her some of the smaller Transformers (Legends, Mighty Muggs, WST, 3-inch Titaniums perhaps) if she hasn't seen them already. I have three of the 3-inchers and all six Mighty Muggs at my desk at work and everyone likes them (and my female coworkers vastly outnumber the male ones). Going with the cutesy route might be one idea.

    i'm glad my gf likes transformers and even accompanies me to toyhunts.

    i guess, you can start by giving cutesy stuff like the plush bumblebee or optimus. and whatever you do, don't let on that you like megan fox. ;)

    /thread.

    But I guess I should answer. Transforming a girlfriend into a transfan.

    If I recall, difficulty is up there with Leader class toys.

    You have to be careful when you lock her arms back, because the ball joints can pop out if you force them too hard. Popping them back in is a little annoying. Also, if you twist the legs too hard from the end instead of higher up, the foot may come loose.

    Stowing the weapon isn't too bad, though.

    Don't bother.

    My girlfriend doesn't have to like Transformers. She likes me, and I'm lucky to even get that much.

    In all honesty though, my girlfriend isn't too into the whole toy collector scene. But she understands that it's a hobby like any other. I have mine: TFs, toys, comics, Pokemon video games. She has hers: girly manga (shoujo), and Asian drama series.

    No point in trying to convert anyone. If she gets into it, cool. If she doesn't, no big deal. It's your thing, not necessarily hers. As long as she's cool with you having a toy collection. If she isn't, then that's another matter and you should drop her like soda out of a vending machine.

    I'd have to agree here. I think there are more interesting things to write about for such an assignment. If you're wanting to write about something TF-related, I'd suggest something like this: TFArchive - Transformers Fandom

    Honestly speaking, I'm glad I married a woman who is cool with me being into Transformers, toys, and the like. I don't feel the need to necessitate being "into" my hobby with me as part of having a romantic relationship. My wife isn't trying to "convert" me into any aspect of the things she's "into", though I may watch John and Kate Plus Eight simply to be with her because its one of the many things she enjoys [Usually, I can paint or do something else while it's on anyways].

    We've got threads upon threads of fanboys complaining about how people don't accept them for their hobby of TFs, etc., so I don't see the overwhelming need to try to "convert" a girlfriend into a "TF Fangirl".

    If you're really interested in getting a girlfriend "into" TFs, I think I'd suggest the 2007 movie. My wife really enjoys it (as do I), and it's a good place that's accessible to those who aren't "fans". I still believe that this is one of the reasons it (and RotF) was such a success.

    Give her a couple of basic bots to transform and show here the movie. My missus isn`t a fangirl, but now she knows the names because I just bang on about stuff all the time. Plus she likes that I like it and its better than me going to strip clubs.

    Say that she is more beautiful and clever ( this must be real fact) than Megan Fox. Then go with the bumblebee and animated bulkhead.

    Reverse order of instructions to convert back to normality.

    Kiss Play.


    Disturbing? Yes.

    Wrong? Yes.

    Gross? Definately.

    Just tell her that's the way all Transformers are. You'll walk in the house one day to find her kissing all of your toys. The rest will take care of itself.

    Agreed. And my wife is a traditional, classic woman - I'm happy with her being into shoes, purses, and jewelry, not toys.

    How difficult would it be not to be at least more clever than Fox?

    As for looks...I've said it before, maybe I'm jaded, maybe it's because I'm in Vegas, but I honestly might not even look twice at Fox if she wasn't famous and I saw her in the street.

    I'd go with the idea of showing the girl a few Beast Wars Episodes and see what she thinks.As for the toys,go with the Animated Toyline first,particularly the Deluxe or Activator classes and see what goes on from there.

    And whoever said that girls don't like Transformers is clearly wrong.I'm a girl and I love Transformers.
