    Me on Christmas morning of 1984. I was eleven. Got Optimus and Soundwave, along with a Cobra Water Moccasin and an A-Team helicopter. And a box of Whoppers. I still have the first three; they're pretty worn out, but so am I. :)

    Damn, I can't believe those whoppers didn't last, how could you be so irresponsible and use them all up?

    It took me spotting them in the picture to realize "Oh, not the burger".

    Why do I feel old? I'm a young adult, great scott. My entry point into the franchise was Beast Wars.

    How can I feel old when Hasbro keeps redoing G1. I'm not old, I'm not even born yet!

    Alright, so I had some tears in the car today when my mp3 player hit "Nothin's Gonna Stand in Our Way" and that song hit me in such a relatable way when I was young. Like "fast and free and young, nothing's gonna stand our way!" And now I think the possibilities are over, my future is set, I'm old, I'm useless, I can't be free and wild, and do what I want. Sad life.

    These little guys (and the He-Man ones) were a big part of me learning to love reading.
    [​IMG]
    We only had terrestrial TV, so I saw Series 1 of Transformers when it was released, then I had "Arrival from Cybertron" and "Megatron's Master Plan" on VHS tape and then NOTHING else until the Movie was released as a book and tape.
    Yet somehow this little goofy show embedded itself in my heart.
    I had an Optimus Prime who was played with to almost literal death. Cracked plastic, wobbly limbs and broken bits on his trailer. No regrets, but I do miss the toy.
    Now the WFC series have rekindled that exact nostalgic feeling in me. It's like no time has passed at all.

    It's hard to listen to some music now. Like, The Donnas' song "Dirty Denim" (which is twenty years old next year) has the line "Your hair is so dirty / It makes you look like you're thirty." And I'm like, they thought thirty was old and disgusting when they wrote that... and I'm 46...
