    I'm 40yrs old. I would point and laugh at this childish behavior of yours, but I'm too busy transforming my "Classics" Prowl...

    21? You have a long way to go.

    I'm 39 and I still watch them. Thundercats, He-Man, Voltron, GI Joe, The Snorkels.....all of these. No shame here.

    Absolutely not! It's what you make of it, not others. That's why I'm glad to know you're watching it because you like it and want to, rather than denying/depriving yourself based on someone else's opinion. Right? :)

    I'm almost 40 and currently watching G1, Beast Wars, (finished Prime recently), as well as collecting the toys and reading the comics. I also have a full time job and take care of my family amongst other things. Point is, if you are taking care of business as an adult, you can make the choice to be like a kid ;)

    It only seems childish because people from their teenage years to young adult years tend to be self-concious (sp), want to fit in, and feel better when they put others down. When people get more mature, they feel more comfortable and confident with who they are. Those of us who enjoy TFs during the teen to young adult period are actually more mature than those who tease us about it.

    It's childish to watch any Transformers series at any age.

    So what?


    The thing that is an even greater indication of childishness is worrying about what other people might think is childish.

    Is it childish to be jealous of you for having the Blu-ray? LOL But seriously I'm WELL into my 30's watch them frequently. Go to work, be a good Son, Brother, Father what ever you happen to be and enjoy what you like.

    yes, you should be full of shame. Watching G1 beyond 13 is worse then your mom catching you looking at porn.

    Or you know your a grown ass man do what you want.

    Is it childish to post a question like this on a Transformers message board that exists for people of all ages to talk about Transformers shows, toys, comics, etc..?

    Yes.

    I've never considered this childish. Then again I never really grew up. Currently 20 years old.

    I'll be 40 next month, and I watched MTMTE the other day. The feeling of "childish" never even entered my being.

    no...why would it be? it's best to do it before you watch ANYTHING related to tf's, as it will get you ready.

    the same counts for comics.
