    Hey everyone. First I would like to apologize for using up space that could be for something important or news related. This was the only way I thought everyone could see since this pertains to the community. I personally would like to say thank you to TFW. Without this site and forum I wouldn't have anybody to share this hobby with. Its nice to voice my opinion and also here others. For some time now I have been a member here and have made some really good friends. This hobby is about the cool figures that bring back our childhood memories. On the other hand its about a community that's come together to share what seems to be the a hobby that is still yet in its prime. New things coming out every week. When a subject comes up there are times when we as passionate people for this hobby start to bicker and argue. I've seen it at times get down right nasty. Here over the last couple of weeks though I have witnessed acts of kindness towards and for others. Helping each other weather it be with our collections or a part that someone needs. Tutorials and how to video reviews. Helping others buy things when timing has played a role. That to me is what makes this hobby fun. Its what makes it worth it. I remember a story from super squad 7 about community and helping one another with a common goal of fulfilling our collections. I would like to see this "pay it forward" trend continue. Everyone, and there are so many to name, has done a great job at helping. Take the TFC Dino combiner thread for example, one person needed a horn for their figure and it just took off from there. I just want to say thank you to everyone here for being kind and helping your fellow collector. Let's keep the pay it forward going any way we can.

    What? No pictures? What is this!? Hahaha

    I've noticed it too. Reason I started posting after lurking for several years.

    And don't feel bad about not knowing anyone local that's into this hobby of ours. Seems many of us are in a similar aquatic wessel. Myself included. Kudo's to this site, and to you for acknowledging it all.

    This is one of the few Transformers forums on the internet that isn't hostile towards 3rd Party items, so for that alone i'm thankful for this site.

    Yeah, thank goodness I found this site. Absolutely none of my friends collect transformers or any type of action figures, and when people come over they always look confused by them (most of the people that I know think all toys are for kids). It's nice to engage with other people about something that's been with me since childhood.

    I wholeheartedly agree with this! Thankfully a lot of my friends do accept the hobby and effort in it. They are friends for the past 20 year and know my affection for the hobby, and really like the part that I still collect.
    They were actually saddened when I sold everything off.

    The forums seem to be toning down the actual discussion fights and great conversations between fans are getting informative and better last few months.
    it seems that we are all trying to understand points of views rather than feeling the need to defend our own. We all accept different views more, even when not coinciding with our own.
    i'M LOVING THIS FORUM MORE AND MORE!

    Theres alo a cheap KO on the market, but I wouldn't recommend it. Quality leaves to be desired..... :D

    It means exactly what you did my friend. In the TFC Dino combiner thread someone had 2 same horns. I had a correct one, one that they needed. So I sent it to them. In turn that person sent his extra horn to the next person that needed it and it just continued until everyone eventually was taken care of. Nobody charged anyone anything. You bought me something out of sheer kindness and in return I will do the same for someone else. If that continues then it gets paid forward to the next person. It all boils down to acts of kindness without expecting anything in return. Thanx bro by the way.
