I had several Playskool Transformers as a kid but I'd say around 2006 or 2007 is when I really got into Transformers. I remember the Cybertron episode "Scourge" being one of the earliest television episodes I watched. After the 2007 movie came out, Transformers was huge at my school. Kids would bring their toys to school and play with them during recess. I had the privilege of always getting to be Optimus Prime at recess. I got the 20th anniversary release of the 1986 movie for my 10th birthday (I still have the DVD to this day). The first Bay movie got me into Transformers but I soon made the jump to plenty of G1, Animated, and the Unicron Trilogy. Beast Wars came a little bit later but I'd say that I went all in on Transformers at a pretty young age.
