    I don't know where my life would be without this site. Seriously I know that sound a bit mellow dramatic, but it's the truth. With out this site I never would have met people who go beyond friends and are now an extended family. Thank you TFW and here's to at least another 15!

    Happy B-day TFW!!!!!! Thanks to you, I have had a place to go when no one else understood that collecting and playing with toys is still a good thing no matter how old you get, made new friends, and been able to locate those hard to find toys (although MP-10 TRU Optimus Prime still eludes me lol.)
    Here's to another 15 years and more!!!!! Till all are one!!!!

    I'll be honest, the first TF site I visited regularly was bigbot.com, back then it seemed to be the only one I could ever find. TFW certainly outshined that one.

    Happy Birthday TFW!

    Man, in those old days, it was all about those Car Robots episodes, and Tony B's beats! And now we're all so old -- joined this site when I was 21 or 22, and now I'll be 36 in a couple months -- but TFW just keeps truckin'.

    Happy Birthday TFW! Oh man, I have no idea were I would be without this site. I have made some great friends because of this site. Oddly enough through friends on this site got me my job that I've been at for the past 3 years. I have found lost grails through the great people on this board. I'm so thankful to have this site and this community in my life.

    Happy Birthday to this wonderful site, I honestly
    Don't know what I'd do without Tfw. It's part of my daily routine and some of the people I've met on here have given me wonderful memories. I've changed ao much since I joined and I guess i owe it to some of my fellow board members for that. Heres to another 15 years of awesomeness!

    Jeez, I remember finding this site and forever trying to load it using the 56k modem - until someone needed to use the phone :D 

    I've tried many transformer sites, but tfw has been here for me in good times and bad

    Thank you all

    Dear God....this site started 15 years ago....that is insane. I was like only five at the time.

    I've been here for the last eight going on nine years, I was there during the weird inbetween era of 2006 and early 2007 where the Unicron Trilogy was at its end the first live action movie was just only months away.

    I'm just amazed how I still keep coming back every day to this site, for better or for worse TFW2005 is home.

    Man I started on this board around the time it started then, I remember when you were linked with Transfandom? for awhile and I got into this board due to the Car Robot fan subs and was convinced to import figures of them. I didn't graduate college till summer 2001, and had been addicted to the boards for quite some time then when I was at college so it had to be at least 6 months to a year......God I was still on AOL back then......

    I remember the crazyness that was he tell me and all the armada speculation, not to mention the Orson fiasco. Time flies doesn't it.

    Man, I have been here since the beginning (user name then was DoubleCross)

    Some highlights:

    User Flash Convoy who tried to convince us he had everything

    Vegetaka (sp?) guy who signed off from the board with a message telling us after 9/11 he felt compelled to enlist

    Making animated pixel transformers before pixel are was in

    I can go with most of that too. This site was my go-to site when I needed a break from class. No joke, this was in college, I would leave the class and go to the "computer room" and just piddle around for 10-15 minutes then return.

    AOL... plus I had a Juno account back then too. What would I have done without TFW (and Transfandom)?
